Food in a minute…

More like 10 minutes - but that’s still pretty quick!

Tonight in my mini kitchen I whipped up a delicious salad consisting of lentils, raw grated beets and carrot, raisins, spinach, pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds, avocado and tempeh cooked in coconut oil with a lemon juice dressing! πŸ‘Œ

I’m nearly 40 weeks pregnant and feeling pretty tried - it’s a good thing great food doesn’t have to take a long time! A xx

Motivational…

It was an absolute delight to watch epic friends strut their stuff on the runway in the Lululemon fashion show this evening!! 

From the moment it started I was inspired to move my body - to practice yoga, get outside and run or swing some kettle bells!  Now that’s my kinda fashion show!

Big congratulations to all involved!   A xx

Creating new life…

It blows my mind every time I think about where we came from, that we all started as tiny beings living inside our beautiful mothers.

Shaped by our environment and learning from experiences and interactions with others to become the individuals we are today - but we all started cradled inside our mothers pukus.

I am blessed to hold a radiant new soul inside my belly while it prepares for it’s entry into this world.  The creation of new life is so precious and overwhelmingly extraordinary! A xx

Coconut brown rice pudding with caramel banana and raisins…

Last night I made a curry served with brown rice so this morning calls for leftover rice pudding for breakfast… So simple and delicious! 

In a pot combine pre cooked brown rice, chia seeds, coconut cream, raisins and finely chopped banana  - if you don’t have enough rice leftover to feed the household you can easily add in oats to make it go further.

Cook until the banana gooey and caramel like, adding water throughout cooking process if needed.

I’ve served mine with a splash of creamy Lewis Road silver top milk and coconut flakes! Delish! A xx

When the sunshine is out this ‘nesting Mumma to be’ thing is an absolute pleasure! A xx

Baby bellies are to be celebrated…
