Fun in the Kitchen

Productive days at home. I love them! 6am meditation then yoga to a beautiful new CD I borrowed from the library whilst my candles provided the glow of my room.
A glass Kombucha (which if you've never heard of or tried I highly recommend it - will post another blog on all the greatness of it soon) and then I got to having FUN IN THE KITCHEN!
I love spending time in the kitchen but don't always get the luxury of a whole day. Yesterday I tried a new recipe for a pate that wasn't too bad (I couldn't put my taste buds on what was missing though...) and used that in my chinese broccoli wraps I had for dinner.

And this morning, after blending 5 organic bananas with some water, maca and cacao for my brekkie bowl, I began deciding on what to make. Oh the excitement!!
I had some vegie pulp left over from juice I made yesterday so I decided to use it to make raw carrot and sultana bread. This stuff is unreal. Top it with vegies for a sandwich, have it alongside a big green salad, or spread some raw nut butter ontop and eat it with your mum whilst she has her white toast with vegemite ;)

Next was something with bananas. Brock brought a truckload round and they were ripening real quick! So I immediatley thought ICE CREAM! I've been wanting some for weeks and just havn't made any. So with some already frozen 'nanas I blended a dozen or so with some tahini and agave until it was uber smooth and creamy. MMM. I also made a quick choccie sauce and lined some ice block moulds before pouring my banana sensation in. Result - Banana Choc Pops. Raw magnums in my opinion - only better. And 100% guilt free. HEAVEN.

Monday off Work

Mondays. I've always loved them. I've always worked weekends so Monday-itis have never been an issue for me. Infact I look forward to Mondays. It's a new beginning. I feel FRESH. Renewed. And full of EXCITEMENT for what my new week looks like. I was always the bubbly chirpy girl behind the cafe counter greeting the 9-5 folk with a smile and a "Good Morning", happy to help them out with their daily dose of caffine.
But today, I am not working. I actually have the day off. I opted for a walk instead of a run (due to my nobbly knees playing up), indulged in kombucha tea after weeks without it, had some bananas for lunch and now I'm sipping on multiple cups of rooibos tea. The cicadas outside warn me of the warmer weather I LOVE and the chirping birds make sure I know they're there too, waiting for their bird seed on the porch railing.
Peacefull and full of gratitude, I'm now off to get myself sorted for my FIRST ever client tomorrow morning (I should mention I'm a Holistic Life Coach)!!
