9.45am this morning - before my PMS-mood set in and I turned into an angry & irritable human being that was far from fun being around😡
This included, but not limited to; getting upset because Pash ate more of the salmon we were suppose to share at IKEA, then continued to throw a fit because Pash paid for my petrol & didn’t get my points, almost cried because I forgot an extra shopping-bag for the groceries and had to buy a new one, ate a whole block of chocolate and fell asleep on the couch, woke up and felt incredibly alone & missed my family.. 🤦🏼♀️
Oh, and did I mention we decided to go to IKEA, along with 100000 other people, with the mood I was in?🤦🏼♀️
Despite my human-meltdown today, I’m actually so grateful my period is back again after being gone for so many years.. My body just needs to adjust a little & learn how to cope with all the emotions, I suppose 🤷🏼♀️
Anyone else feel this way? 🤔
bfast from this morning featuring my fav seasonal fruit: persimmons!!! i sautéed them in a little cinnamon and added the classic tahini and maple syrup 👌 10 out of 10 recommend!! i used the same oat recipe as the cacao oats a couple posts ago except without cacao (obviously😋). just about to take off for minnesota. fingers crossed for some snow 🤞
Hopefully getting my phone fixed today 🙏🏻 I miss having a working camera. Until then, here’s a plate similar to what we had for breakfast this morning: @vitalfarms fried eggs (cooked in coconut oil with some @yourtaylorfarms organic spinach), avocado and oven baked delicata squash rings.
Wishing you all a wonderful Saturday!
I can’t believe that before this move, I visited LA in February and I was COMPLETELY unaware of how different my life would look in less than a year. 2018, you’ve been no joke. You’ve brought some ups, downs, and new beginnings. Transitions, changes and some of the best experiences of my life. Plenty of @thegoodfest events, two yoga teacher trainings, the opportunity to teach on 3 retreats, and no shortage of personal growth and alignment. .
To be honest, fear and anxiety crept in when the fires devastated Southern California last week. My heart broke for the all the families effected, the souls - both human and animals who lost their homes and cherished memories. I wondered if it was a sign I was making some kind of mistake. Or that this wasn’t the time. .
I had to say “fuck off” to my fears and remember to stay grounded in my choice. But with fire and devastation, comes beautiful transformation. As individuals or as a community and collective, we can set fire to broken pieces, beliefs and fears. We can start anew. 💜
These babies deserve a close-up. It’s the weekend before thanksgiving which means, in majority of groups of females, it’s time for Friendsgiving. Throw on the stretchy pants, grab a bottle of wine, and get ready to feast with the ladies you love. If you’re tasked with bringing the dessert, I can guarantee these will be a hit. Individual apple crumble pies with a crunchy (GF) crust filled with deliciously warm and cozy spiced apples that’ll melt in your mouth. Make your friends happy, go buy my Thanksgiving ebook (link in bio) to get this recipe and get baking!

Today = Vegan 🌱 Yoga 🧘♀️ ⠀⠀
I never ever, in my wildest dreams thought I would be someone who would post one of these photos. So I can’t even be bothered to take the ‘perfect snap’ this is just me on my balcony yesterday. I just wanted to show my story for the last 2 years and it’s easier to convey with pictures although it makes me cringe 😬. For those of you that don’t know after I closed My business I had a health breakdown physical/mental/spiritual and finally turned to yoga, meditation and a plant based diet which I eventually adopted as a vegan lifestyle.

⠀⠀ I know these posts are usually more interesting. But I just want everyone to see what the effects that stress hormones can have on the body, including eating them via the food we consume. Stress is serious and can manifest in your body producing all sorts of health issues. After a long windy road, eventually I took steps to reduce my stress levels not my weight and by reducing cortisol and other stress hormones I healed myself, no gym, no hard core exercises, no calorie restriction. Loving life and thanking the #vegan and #yoga online community for all their love, encouragement and support. I ❤️ you guys.
I would like to particularly thank @ellenfisher who gave me so much inspiration via IG and YouTube with her incredible example. Thank you so much Ellen 😊
GREEN BEAN JAZZY CASSEROLE! Because the casserole made with canned cream of mushroom soup is good until you think about what in that can of slop. 😆🤢
◽️First, head over to my stories for tons of tips on how to make this casserole (including homemade breadcrumbs)!
◽️Now for the recipe: blend up toast to make homemade breadcrumbs (yes, it’s that simple)! Mix this with 1/4c grated Parmesan cheese and set aside. Next, whisk 5oz plain greek yogurt with 1/3c vegetable broth, 1t black pepper, and 1t garlic powder.
◽️Cut ends off of green beans and toss in yogurt mixture with onions (and mushrooms if you want). Coat well then pour into 8x8 pan. Top with breadcrumb mixture and bake at 350F for 25 minutes then broil for 3 minutes until top is crispy. Enjoy!
I got a lot of questions about these buns I baked earlier today🥖✨ I’ve tested this recipe a gazillion times the past months to get the most simple recipe that makes a moist crumb and a crispy crust for the most delicious buns 👌🏻💞 I believe I accomplished it now so I’ll post the recipe soon. Stay tuned ✌🏻😘
