Kitchari – the Ayurvedic cleansing bowl of goodness.

I came across Kitchari at the beginning of summer this year as I was approaching my birthday and experimenting with vegan, gluten free cake recipes. I was feeling bloated from all the taste testing and know that a juice cleanse isn’t suitable for my food-loving self, no matter how hard I try to convince myself…

Sweet Potato & Chickpea Coconut Curry (V, GF & Damn delish!)

The days are slowly getting colder here in France and storm season is in full swing. The nights are breezy and mornings come with a fresh chill in the air. In fact, the past few nights have been crazy windy and there’s a mistral on its way (the name for a big storm over the…

Sweet Potato & Black Bean Buddha Bowl

I love a Buddha bowl. What is it, I hear you ask. Well that’s the point I love so much! By my definition, it’s simply a bowl bundled with goodness. All kind of goodness. I suppose it’s whatever you make it and the options are endless. I love healthy food. I love colourful food and…

Home is Where the Heart is – The Côte d’Azur

They say there’s no place like home and it’s true. But what happens if you’re so nomadic that you don’t have a home? No set place to call your own. It’s a strange feeling, but home is in fact where your heart is. And I have to say, my heart is scattered in fragments across…

Wise Words that Stuck Like Glue

Even in what I wrote yesterday, I attested to the fact that I really should practice what I preach, but the reality is that it’s not always that straightforward. A while back, I wrote about my morning ritual and how great it is to have a mini routine to set me up for the day,…

Making Changes that are Scary

It’s so easy to fall into a rut in life and just continue along a path that we’ve started walking down simply due to the ease of the steps. The familiarity drives us to keep on walking and the comfort of knowing everything that’s there is second to none. It’s the simplicity of carrying on…

September Mornings – What I’m Eating.

The reality is that I rarely know what day it is. Sometimes I genuinely forget what time of year it even is. I may sound like a spoilt brat saying this but it does all merge into one when the sun is (almost) always shining and summer is seemingly endless. I’m not ashamed to admit…

Adventures Ahead

As fast as the world is spinning is as fast as I’ve been moving lately. There has been so much going on that every time I grab a few minutes to myself is to mindlessly sit, lay or stand staring at my phone aimlessly. I’ve been low on energy for anything other than what’s been…

Instagram for Inspiration

Social media is a funny thing. It has a bad rap recently with different groups of people for different reasons. The biggest factors being that of body image or comparing our lives to those of others. At least that’s what it seems to me by the people I choose to follow and the things I…

You Glow Differently When You’re Actually Happy

We’ve all heard people saying this, but maybe you’re like me and have rolled your eyes in some way at this bold statement. But let me tell you something. I think I just proved that these utterings are actually true. I’m not a morning person. Let’s just get that straight from the outset. I don’t…
