Monthly musings, health and wellbeing inspirations and other random happenings in my quest for a happy life, a healthy relationship with food and totally in tune with a busy lifestyle.
Recipe: Heidi Swanson’s chunky lentil soup from her cookbook Super Natural Cooking. Perfect lunch for cold winter days!* Essential oil diffuser blend: Just plain old bergamot essential oil. It’s my favourite whenever I need some comfort. Self-care: Intentionally starting January slowly and taking time for myself. Random inspiration: Music by Dreamtree Project. So chill! Feel good moment in Januar: The mix of heat and ice cold air during a sauna visit in wintery Germany. Recently discovered foodie product: Zotter dark hot chocolate served in dairy-free milk. Heavenly! Read of the month: ‘If diets don’t work, WTF should I do?’ by Laura Thomas. Brilliant adivce on how to get away from the diet culture! Smart treat: Lindt Caramel and Sea Salt dark chocolate. Movement routine of the month: Do Yoga With Me 30 Day Yoga Challenge: the best thing is they won’t take the videos down at the end of January, so get on it now! Yoga inspiration: ‘Yoga is not about self-improvement. Yoga is about self-acceptance.’ – Gurmurkh Kaur Khalsa
