WHY EATING OUT WON’T DO YOU GOOD

WHY EATING OUT WON’T DO YOU GOOD

My poop stinks, and my skin breaks out; I feel like a gross pig and promise myself not to do ever do it again. That’s pretty much the after mayhem of a meal out, and I would love to explore a bit on why that happens:

  1. Food is information. When eating out, food is most often than not prepared in busy kitchens by stressed out chefs, handled by overworked staff, and brought over by disgruntled servers. Naturally, meals end up vibrationally unbalanced. Not exactly the sort of information our bodies thrive on.
  2. Maximum results with minimum effort. That’s how we’re designed to function, and copious combos, such as dessert right after the main, violate this very basic principle.
  3. Drinking and eating is just as dangerous as drinking and driving, and bloated tummies are a direct consequence of that.
  4. Gluttony hurts. And most of us are guilty of it when eating out.
  5. Processed is confusing. Anything processed, meaning different from its natural state, confuses the body. Eating some fresh coconut is easy, digesting a coconut curry – and all the added sauces, salt, flavourings, preservatives, maltodextrin, and so on – isn’t. Cause of how messed up and unnatural it all looks like to the already stressed out, overly abused human body.
  6. Eating consciously. This is not only vital for proper digestion – but also the exact opposite of how we actually eat out in real life: quickly, hectically, ignorantly, immersed in a sea of white noise.

So I am always amazed at the power social conditioning, powerful childhood memories, familiar traditions and  mental neurological links our brains’ve developed over time have in making us put ourselves through such a ‘traumatising’ experience over and over again – ironically, for the sake of fun and some good time 😉 Isn’t life wonderful, you get to learn something from literally everything!

CALM ME DOWN – YOU LOVELY MANGO!

CALM ME DOWN – YOU LOVELY MANGO!

Anyone who’s met me knows that I have a soft spot for avocados, unnecessary Yakinori take away, totally-not-vegan sea food, salmon and Italian ice-cream… I am flawed and have recently embarked on a healing journey towards observing (without criticising) and living more simply (letting go of […]

OCTOBER / MONTH OF ABUNDANCE

OCTOBER / MONTH OF ABUNDANCE

The uber-confusing, ever-cleansing and emotionally-challenging rollercoaster that was September has eventually come to an end, so here’s to a splendid October – characterized by abundance, a great deal of unexpected resources coming through and just an overall bountiful four weeks ahead of us.

I am dwelving into October by setting up a brand new vision board (sweet post on how to do that coming A$AP), alongside picking up my affirmation work once again.

I feel like creativity’s gonna be on a roll this coming weeks, and making time to engage in any creative outlet is therefore essential in order to consciously expand and move forward. A lot of new projects, jobs, and personal campaigns that have just recently commenced around the start of October, so ‘energetic purification’ will be key to attain success (i.e. assign no meaning whatsoever to thoughts and mental patterns that may cause suffering – let them go away just like waves do; eat consciously and make sure your body has plenty of time to detox & get rid of both physical and emotional residue).

I’m also taking a new approach to the way I run my blog, not very sure what’ll change just yet – because part of the process requires for me to stay open and receive change any way it may come in – not just my way 😉

Be serene, joyful, go to bed early and do your work! (also, try Booja Booja vegan ice cream – got some the other day and it’s the bomb!! –> Maple Pecan is my fave <3 )

SUPER QUICK VEGAN CHIA PUDDING PARFAIT

SUPER QUICK VEGAN CHIA PUDDING PARFAIT

Did all those insanely good-looking vegan parfaits on Instagram wreak havoc with your … life in general? Then this is the quick, go-to recipe that’ll get you enjoying one and posting about it all over the Interwebs in no time! (OK, it’ll be around 10 mins tbh)

THE BASE – THE CANVAS OF ATTENTION-GRABBING & OUT OF THIS WORLD YUMMY PARFAITS

Get yourself a decent-sized bowl, and depending on how much parfait you’ll want to indulge in, mix almond/oat/rice milk with chia seeds.

There’s no right ratios to be used when mixing the two, just make sure there’s enough chia to ultimately get a pudding-like/gooey consistency. I also use a fork to mix everything up, but a blender/food processor could come in handy if you’re short on time.

Just before putting the chia pudding into the fridge, for it to get all nice and sturdy, make sure to add in a pinch of vanilla powder (or more – go wild from time to time!) and a tad of vegan sweetener, such as coconut blossom or date paste. You a visual learner, like I am? Then here’s a picture of what our plain canvas should look like 🙂

TURNING IT INTO A PROPER PARFAIT

Okay, this is the easy part. When it comes to parfaits, Mason Jars and layering are the key. My last attempt was all about simplicity, so I only had mango chunks in. But you could go bananas and add … bananas (ahaha!), strawberries, spiced baked apples, coconut yogurt or blueberries for some dramatic blue hues.

Layer the base chia pudding with the toppings of your choice in a pretty mason jar, take a pretty pic (or a gazillion of them trying to snap the perfect one – DON’T ACTUALLY) and go ahead devour it all <3
