Morning Walks and Brunch Locations With A View + How to Eat Out Healthily

Morning Walks and Brunch Locations With A View + How to Eat Out Healthily

On the list of things I missed the most while I was in India, Sydney's brunch is definitely in the top 10. Having spicy rice for breakfast is alright and all, but boy did I miss my morning cappuccino, smashed avo and sourdough bread. Aussies just know how to brunch, am I right? The cool thing in Sydney is that their brunch scene doesn't equate to big boozy escapades with all-you-eat-buffets (reminds me of Dubai times, #foodcoma).

What It's Like To Do Your Yoga Teacher Training In India

What It's Like To Do Your Yoga Teacher Training In India

I leave India with a 200h yoga certificate, new found friends and a heart bursting full of joy, appreciation, and gratitude for this experience, for myself, my body, mother nature and this beautiful earth we live in. Doing my Yoa Teacher Training in India was everything I hoped for and more.

It was...

It was like one big summer camp for adults.

It was practicing yoga 3-4 hours a day, 6 days a week.

It was morning neti pots and herbal teas.

Why Waiting To Buy New Clothes Until You Lose Weight Is The Worst Idea Ever

Why Waiting To Buy New Clothes Until You Lose Weight Is The Worst Idea Ever

I know....

You don’t want to buy that dress or shop for new jeans until you’re at least 5,10, 15, 20+ kilos thinner than you are now.

You imagine this beautiful new wardrobe you’ll buy when you’re skinny and image how fantastic and confident you will feel.

I get it. I used to think the same.

Best Healthy Hotspots In Byron Bay

Best Healthy Hotspots In Byron Bay

When you drive into Byron Bay there is a welcome sign, saying, “cheer up, slow down, chill out,”. That pretty much sums up my Byron experience.

From the day I moved to Sydney, going for a long weekend trip to Byron Bay was on top of my travel-list. I had heard endless stories about the region’s bountiful organic produce, health conscious culture, long beaches and laid-back vibes; I was convinced before I even got there. Plus the weather is picture-perfect almost all year round, what's not to love? It's also just a short 1 1/2 - hour flight away from Sydney, making it the perfect quick city escape.

Rosewater Berry NanaBowl Recipe + Get To Know The Founders of NanaBowls

I first connected with Phil and Jess through social media two years ago when I was travelling through Phuket and discovered their Instagram accounts. I then had the pleasure of meeting Phil during my detox holidays at Phuket Cleanse - he was working there as director at the time. I only got to meet Jess some time later when I went to London - at the time she was working for Deliciously Ella and I was intrigued to join the team. Maaaan I just love social media - in this day and age, it's so damn easy to connect with like-minded people and to find 'your tribe'. Without Insta, I would have probably never met these two super inspirational people! Case in point: check out Phil's Ted Talk that he did a couple of months ago on "how to get your mojo back".

I Gained Weight, So What? - Here Is What I Am Learning Along The Way

I Gained Weight, So What? - Here Is What I Am Learning Along The Way

So, I gained weight.

I know it. My partner knows it. My family knows it. My friends know it. Instagram knows it.

I'm sure I'm not the only one going through this. In fact, maybe you gained some weight recently as well?

There are many reasons why I gained weight; all of which are within my control. On the one hand, I have become less restrictive/obsessive and have truly given up the diet mentality for good. Yay! But on the other hand I have also been super stressed and anxious in recent months and as a result, my emotional eating track record has been through the roof. Nay! But regardless of why, none of these reasons need to be explained or apologized for. It is what it is.

Loving Lately - 21.02.17

GUYYYYS. What is there not to love lately? Sure, I have my ups and downs just like everyone else, but 2017 has been a pretty good year so far and I've been doing so many things that light my soul on ire.

It’s been a bit since I’ve done a loving lately post, so let’s just dive on in!

My Journey From Self-Destruction To Self-Love

My Journey From Self-Destruction To Self-Love

Do you sometimes do things that you know aren't good for you and you will feel like crap afterward?

I'm sure you are all quietly nodding your heads right now. Regardless of whether your destructive behavior is downing a pint of Ben and Jerry’s each night, or getting embarrassingly intoxicated in front of the wrong people, I think we can all relate to the fact that sometimes we feel a bit out of control of our own behavior.

The picture you see above shows me in the summer of  2011 vs 2016.

Wholesome Travel Guide To Singapore

Wholesome Travel Guide To Singapore

Initially, Singapore didn't really strike me as a very healthy place. There's deep fried Asian food everywhere, when you are at the local markets it's impossible to know what you are eating and I didn't see a lot of people being very active. That is, if you don't count the shopping marathons that are possible in Singapore (you can literally walk through the entire 4 million-people city via malls underground.

But after a couple of days exploring the city with my other half Vic, I was more and more impressed with the healthy cafés and studios that we discovered. They aren't as easily visible at first sight like I am now used to in Australia, but if you do a bit of research, you will realise that there are actually plenty of great options. It's a place where the health scene is really up and coming, so if you keep your eyes peeled, I'm sure you will discover some new and exciting places.

Vegan Peanut Butter And Vanilla Nana Ice Cream

Vegan Peanut Butter And Vanilla Nana Ice Cream

It's no secret that I go nanas for bananas. A good 20% of my recipes on this blog include bananas, like my favorite post-workout green smoothie, my peanut butter covered banana snack or these vegan banana blueberry pancakes.

With the scorching temperatures in Australia at the moment, it's about time that I come up with my first nana ice cream recipe for this blog. I always have frozen bananas in the freezer for smoothies anyways, so whipping up this recipe is fairly simple.
