London + The cure to your food fears? Travel!

Hi Beautiful Friends! Last Sunday I wrote a post about how Traveling teaches us to be present.   I took a spontaneous short trip to London alone, visited markets, talked to strangers, made friends, ate waffles, and became amazed how beautiful bread can be…. 😉 You can read all about it and the spiritual lessons I learned including all of the foodie bread, waffles, GIANT COOKIES photos in this post. In today’s post I wanted to talk about how traveling can help overcome our food and body struggles. I went through a dark period about 2 years food and body wise where I embarked on a journey to recover from anorexia and depression.

The words that I wanted to hear when I was going through such a dark period was to know that there would be a light or lesson in going through this difficult period. The glimmer of light and lessons I learned along the way …

So, I booked a flight to go to London for 2 days. No questions asked. The spontaneity of it really surprised me.

Vegan mini Banana Bread + it’s not about self improvement

Happy Weekending Friends! I love bananas, i think sometimes I go bananas over them 😉 I don’t like the green ones though, they taste rather tart. I love super spotted bananas though. They’re sweet, delectable, and very versatile- you can freeze them to make creamy smoothies, eat them as a snack, slather some almond butter chocolate chips on them, and bake banana bread with them. After the success of my Super Energising Banana Bread, I wanted to experiment and create a vegan one. So today, I have these Vegan mini Banana Breads for you guys!   But first, I’ve also been reflecting lately. on life. and how we go about it. For much of my life I’ve let my insecurities get the better of me. Perhaps I’m not alone in this, because I think we all have our moments of self doubts. After going through my recovery from anorexia and depression, then uprooting and going behind why I’ve always felt ‘not good enough’, I’ve realised that I can get caught up in searching for continual …
