On Sundays I do my vegan food prep. That means I spend a couple of hours busy in the kitchen preparing a couple of different meals for the week so that I have food prepared for lunches and dinners. It saves me so much time and is a real stress relief too! I always have a meal or food prepared so I don’t have to cook when I’m tired after a long day of work. Back when I first started working, and hadn’t properly learned how to adult yet (lol, still don’t know how to adult), I would buy lunch every day at work. Then one day I sat down and added it all up to see how much money I was actually spending each week (and month) by buying lunches. Whoops! It was a lot more than I had imagined. Seeing how much money I could save by making…

I’m going to be completely honest with you. I’ve had Golden Mylk Latte at cafés many times, but I was hella sceptic to try making it myself. Golden Mylk is a warm yellow drink with turmeric in it, but turmeric in itself doesn’t smell great. It has a very earthy and slightly bitter smell to it, so while making this Golden Mylk Latte Recipe, the smell of the spice mix made me think this was going to be one for the experimental failure books. But, not one to give up on one of my recipe developments, I finished making it and – with slight hesitation – took a sip and realised, it tastes amazing! Total hit and just as good as the Golden Mylk Lattes (or Turmeric Lattes) I’ve had at my favorite cafés. I typically use oat milk as my milk option, but you could use any base for this…

I’ll usually spend a portion of my Sunday preparing food for the week. I like to make things that are quick, easy and make enough for several portions – and that are nutritious too. A recent favorite is this crispy tofu recipe of mine which can be added to salads, served with a side of rice and a nice sauce, or even topped on soups or stews. When I do my food prep on the weekends, I try to make sure I make enough to cover lunch boxes for the week and leftovers for quick dinners so that I don’t have to cook when I get home from work. It means I end up eating a lot of the same things during a week, but I like it that way. It’s super convenient and saves me so much time and energy after a long day of work. I absolutely love smoked…

I recently listened to Yoga Girl’s (Rachel Brathen) podcast From The Heart and the episode about our inner critic. In the two part episode, Rachel sits down with her 52 yoga teacher trainees and asks them what the voice of their inner critic says, and what their inner best friend says to counter that critical voice inside. Inspired by the podcast, I wanted to share with you what my inner critic says. Eating Disorders and The Inner Critic When I shared my eating disorder story, I introduced you to some of the thoughts that circle in my mind. Battling an eating disorder includes having a very mean and very loud voice going at you non-stop. I can tell you first hand that there is never a time when the voice of the inner critic is so strong and loud as when you’re wrapped up in an eating disorder. Working on my…

If you’re anything like me, you’ve likely got your morning routine down to a T. Or maybe you’re the opposite – so far removed from a morning person that you snooze fifteen times before reluctantly dragging yourself out of bed. Whichever you are, I promise you your morning self will than you if you prepared breakfast the night before. Here’s how to make overnight oats that’ll be ready and waiting for you in the fridge when you wake up. First, a moment of honesty: I never used to be an overnight oats kind of girl. No matter the temperature, I preferred my oats warm. But, then the heat wave of this summer hit and I decided I had to give chilled oats another chance, and just like that, overnight oats became my go-to and saving grace during the summer of 2018. What’s so great about overnight oats? I’m sure this…

When the heat is as oppressive as it has been in most parts of the world this summer, hot drinks just won’t fly. Believe me, I love my coffee but have honestly struggled to finish a single cup of coffee most days this past month. All I want is chilled drinks to combat the sweat perpetually sliding down my back. Which is how I came about whipping together this iced matcha latte shake. Matcha powder is green and made of ground up green tea leaves. It’s got a lot of caffeine in it (as green tea naturally does), so you’ll get the boost you crave from it. Matcha, or green tea, also has a lot of antioxidants in. And let’s be real, people go cray for those antioxidants these days. Whether or not you’re sweating it out this summer like me, throw together one of these iced matcha latte shakes…

I am a sucker for beautiful ceramics. I can always find a mug I love, and don’t even get me started on tiny plates and bowls. So cute! Of course, running this blog and the baking and food styling that comes with it increases my lure to ceramic homeware. My foodie creations and photos just wouldn’t be as beautiful without them! So, as a fan of supporting small businesses and creativity, here’s my guide of Where to Find Beautiful Ceramics. My plates, bowls, and mugs are purchased a little bit all over the place. I often find beautiful homeware during my travels. Most recently, I a pretty ceramic tumbler at the Japanese Garden during our visit to Portland. I’ve also got really good at keeping my plants alive (I used to be the worst plant mama, always killing them by watering them either too much or too little), which has…

When the heat strikes like it has in Sweden this summer, I kind of just want to eat ice cream for breakfast lunch and dinner. And a lot of ice cream has been eaten, but I’ve been balancing it with other cool meals that are slightly more nutritiously dense, like smoothie bowls and nice cream. And, these lovely Raw Nice Cream Sandwiches! When I was and ice cream was on offer, I’d often select an ice cream sandwich. I loved the soft cookie with the smooth vanilla ice cream, such a treat! These raw nice cream sandwiches are reminiscent of those chilled treats I had as a kid. But they’re dairy free, vegan and made with simple and natural ingredients like dates, nuts and bananas. They’re also super fun to make and can be varied depending on what flavour of ice cream you prefer. I opted for nuts and chocolate…

I got a question on Instagram a couple weeks ago about my fitness routine and how I stay on track and motivated to keep it up. So, I thought I’d do a post about it. Here’s the question I got from Alli: “I’m curious what lil habits you do on a weekly basis to keep yourself inspired to stay on track in your fitness routine!” First of all, what does my fitness routine look like? My favorite type of exercise is strength training, so that’s what I do most often. I go to the gym almost every day but I put in a proper rest day once or twice a week depending on how my energy levels are and how my body feels. I’m a morning person, so I get up at 4.50am, which gives me some time to catch up on social media or read before I head to the gym.…
