A couple of days ago, my man woke up with the dreaded “man-cold”. Considering neither of us has been sick since we started eating more cleanly and juicing (i.e. in over a year!), this is somewhat of a novelty in our house now!I do, however, still remember how to cure colds fast: rest, lots of fluids, pack in more juice and ginger, tea, and… my chicken soup. I’ve been making this soup for a few years now and it never fails to make me feel warm and fuzzy and nourished. Everything in it has a purpose and is super healing. The recipe might look a bit daunting at first, but you will find as soon as you take a deep breath and tackle it once, chicken soup is actually a lot easier than it...
Nat Kringoudis's Debunking Stress seminar*. I have a few "brain crushes" on people, meaning I kinda have the hots for their brains. Nat's brain is one I have a total teenage-girl-drawing-love-hearts-and-initials-on-my-notebook crush on. Her mission to spread the message of natural fertility, happy healthy hormones, and stress-less living is one I am totally on board with. Last year I went to her Debunking Ovulation seminar where I sat with about 40 other women in a room completely riveted by all this mysterious information being imparted to us about how our ovaries actually work; information that got lost after the sexual revolution of the 1960s; information that our grandmothers took completely for granted. I...Read more
post by Slim Bliss Tea on Instagram this morning and, confident I could actually make this recipe without a trip to the market, promptly leapt out of bed and got to work! The recipe they provided had some ingredients that I didn't have in my pantry, but I came up with my version - which, I'll be honest, is pretty darn amazing. Though I am Australian, when I bit into these I couldn't help thinking this is what Thanksgiving tastes like for Americans, but with a smattering of my heritage (Scottish from long, long ago) with the oats, and a hint of ANZAC bikkies thrown in! Admittedly, these are a bit sweeter than my regular breakfast, but make a (still wholesome) treat for every now and then. That said, they were...Read more
The best Sundays start with pancakes. I freaking love pancakes. I mean seriously...I'm a little obsessed!! When I started eating more cleanly (re: less sugar, gluten, processed food), I was distraught to discover that most pancakes are full of sugar, gluten and are generally very processed! After a few months of grieving and wallowing, I plugged "healthy pancakes" into Google. Oh brave new world!! THEY EXIST!!!! I had a very Disney-esque moment - seriously, I'm pretty sure a bunch of fluffy animals and birds appeared from nowhere and did a song-and-dance sequence with me! So, without further ado, here is my Super Simple Sunday Pancakes recipe: Ingredients: 1.5 cups of oats 1 cup milk (I used coconut milk) 2 eggs Sprinkle of cinnamon Dash of vanilla Method: Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth and let it thicken slightly for about 4-5 minutes. Heat coconut oil in a pan and pour out desired sized pancakes. Cook until...Read more
