Sweet Potatoes and Tears

“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.” ― Jack Kornfield, I’m finding that hitting the sixth-month mark as a mother is like trying to keep your head above water, that water being the white rapids.

Banish That Post Festive Loathing

It’s the second of January and all traces of Christmas and NYE have vanished and already I can hear that voice creeping in as I put my comfy, baggy jeans on…”OMG, they’ve turned in to Skinny jeans, noooo” The guilt of overindulging on the Christmas goodies and guzzling too much wine hits home.

Bircher Muesli

This is one of my staple go-to breakfasts, packed full of amazing little happy helpers. It is filling and tasty and best of it only takes 10 minutes to assemble. I’ve tweaked this German classic to make it work for me but the concept is still authentic to its origins. Almond Milk, Oats, chia, pumpkin […]
