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

Roasted Carrot & Garlic Dip with Turmeric

I’ve been wanting to make this specific dip for a while now and I am so glad I finally got around to making it. So creamy, full of flavour and versatile.

Sun Dried Tomato Flatbreads with Macadamia Nut & Dill Cheese

I love my baby herb garden and I love that I can open the window, pick a few leaves or fronds and totally amp up the good vibes in whatever I?ve got going on in the kitchen.

I?m also waiting for my nasturtium read more

Super Cookies & The ‘Shame Game’

In this post I want to share two things with you; some thoughts on mental health and these super cookies that have been saving me a lot recently. This site is a place for ‘thoughtful living’ and I truly feel that discussing mental health is something that can aid in living consciously and bring about a better experience for anyone affected.

Spinach & Butter Bean Salad with Mint & Dill

It doesn?t feel quite like June yet. The weather can?t seem to make up its mind at all. We had a few really warm, gorgeous days full of sunshine and then June Gloom set in, the heavens opened and it constantly rained (which I don?t actually mind at all). This has left me craving warm, comforting turmeric lattes one day and then fresh, raw salads the next. It?s a good mix but sometimes a little confusing. I do feel myself being drawn to making lots of summer vibing read more
