Golden Quinoa Falafel

It’s definitely starting to feel more like spring. Little flowers are breaking through and the weather feels a bit brighter. I can’t believe we’re already well into March. This year is speeding by so far. Which is a nice reminder for me to slow down a little every now and then to be fully present and take in everything around me. There’s nothing I hate more than going through the motions on auto-pilot, ignoring life passing by. Be present.

I love spring. The fresh, read more

Spiced Red Lentil Bowl

For the last few days I have been craving comfort. Comfort in all forms. Hot tea, blankets, restful sleep, a good book, lots of cuddles, candles etc. When I recognise I’m in a low place I try my best to look to the simple, little things I know will bring me some comfort and ease the heavy feeling.

Ginger & Lime Slaw

I am so happy that the mornings are starting to get a little brighter now. It makes me want to get up and get going straight away.

Waking me up with a cup of tea in the morning, making fun of each other constantly for our little quirks, sharing all of our books, cooking together in the evening. These moments get to happen in my everyday life and I am so thankful for it. However, spending real, quality time together that we have set aside to appreciate read more

Warm Kale & Brussel Sprout Salad topped with Crispy Chickpeas & a Nutty Sprinkle

In our home lunch is almost always one of two options; a bowl of leftovers or a salad. Both super easy, quickly throw it together meals. In the warmer months I tend to gravitate more towards a fresh, crunchy, fruit studded affair but we’re still in the midst of winter (and the end of January?!) so something warmer is needed because I’m not completely sure if it’s colder outside or inside our home!

One of the things I seriously love about winter (there’s a long list, read more
