Blood Orange & Cacao Granola

How has your January been? The first month of the new year is coming to a close and I’m feeling optimistic. Becoming more comfortable and confident with the sentiment of ‘I don’t know” is something that I’m currently working on. As a perfectionist, it isn’t easy admitting you don’t have all the answers. When did uncertainty become a negative thing in life? I feel like a lot of people would rather sit with unhappiness rather than step into the unknown. read more

Warm Breakfast Pears with Almond Butter

These warming and delicately sweet pears have been my breakfast for the past week or so and a welcome part of my morning routine. As soon as I’m out of bed I oil pull then I have a mug of warm herbal tea (usually rosehip or ginger) after that I do my movement/meditation practice, whether it’s yoga, pilates or some improvisation, before making something to eat.

Oats with Warm Cinnamon Apple, Puffed Quinoa & Cacao Nibs

Waking up on a cold October morning and knowing I need something warming and substantial to get my day started, the first thought is to make a pot of oats.

The trees outside the front of my flat are already starting to show bare branches. Storm Ophelia stripped them throughout the night. The colder months are my favourite, I’m so happy read more

Simple Coconut Breakfast Loaf with Almond Butter & Nectarine

I like the simple things in life; moving my body, meditation, a good book, spending time with my loved ones, a warm mug of herbal tea, the sound of the heavy rain against windows, being in nature. When it comes to living my life day-to-day I tend to be on the more simple, minimal side. It’s grounding. It’s freeing. It’s anything but boring. It helps you appreciate where you’re at.

This little philosophy is also true when it comes to my style of eating (90% of the time read more

Matcha Mint Smoothie

I swear matcha is magical. The energy and feeling of zen it brings makes it the perfect way to start your morning. I do tend to have my matcha warm in a mug and packed with goodness and adaptogens but this smoothie is a fun, cooling alternative. Especially during the hotter summer months.

Naturally sweetened from the banana and cooling thanks to the mint it gives you a nice kick to get out the door and get going. The addition of tocos adds some creaminess as well as a boost of vitamin E – read more
