What a decade... A truly transformative one for me!
My favourite part about reviewing and reflecting on the year and the decade behind me is thinking about my biggest challenges + lessons learned. Looking back, I’ve noticed how much has happened over a decade. How much I’ve changed, grew and evolved.
When I rewind to 2009/2010, I am met with a totally different version of myself.
In retrospective I can truly see how my hardships, struggles and challenges were...
It’s 9:00am on a Monday, Maya is napping and I’m enjoying my coffee while soaking up this beautiful morning sun. I’ve just sat down to write down my gratitude list and one of the first things that came up for me was my morning routine.
I’ve been mentioning my morning routine quite a lot lately, because truthfully since Maya was born it has become more important than ever. Whether it’s 15 min or 2 hours it’s my 'oxygen mask'.
Last week I wrote a post on social media about the challenges I’ve been experiencing around getting back to my regular post-pregnancy yoga practice and the mindset shift I had to make to make it work in this phase of my life.
I’ve got a lot of comments and messages on this post + questions about how to find balance between sleep and self-care with a busy life.
I feel very proud of myself for making up this recipe while 'wearing' my 3-months old baby ;) Our days have become full in all the best ways since Maya was born and it's been challenging to find time to cook (something I love doing). But few months in and we've figured out some strategies to get things done while caring for Maya. Has it been perfect? No... But it has been so sweet to simply appreciate those times when I manage to pull off a delicious dinner...
They say that when a baby is born, so is a mother. The transition to motherhood is one of the biggest transitions a woman can go through in life. For some women this transition is already noticeable in pregnancy (or even earlier) and for some later on - when they meet their baby for the first time. Every woman’s experience is different. I started experiencing this transition from the final trimester of my pregnancy, through labor and finally when I welcomed...
This post is a part of blog post series in which I'm answering questions you guys have sent me from now until I head out on maternity leave later this summer.

Let's dive in: How to eat intuitively in a relationship?
I love this question! It’s definitely a topic that often comes up with clients who start their intuitive eating journey with me. Whether you are new to intuitive eating or you’re at it for a while now, ‘sharing’ this journ...
As I'v recently discovered my iron levels aren't great (hello third trimester!) I've decided to be more intentional and planned around making sure I'm getting enough iron in my diet (let me know if you're interested knowing more about what I did). These 'falafel' balls are rich in iron as they contain lentils and almonds (both high in iron).
Why I love this recipe...?
It's a super simple quick recipe (just 6 ingredients + seasoning!)
