Almond & Coconut Milk

The past week I’ve been trying my best to be as present and focused on the moment as I can. I have acute anxiety and recently things have felt extremely uncertain which leaves me functioning mainly on racing, negative thoughts and not much else.

Cacao Energy Bites

It truly feels like winter right now. We are set to experience temperatures peaking at -2 over this weekend, I’m sipping spicy chai daily, blankets are all over the flat and I’m constantly looking out of the window to see if any snow has fallen yet.
