This might sound weird to you, considering the fact I’m sleep deprived (being a new mom), lately I’ve been struggling to sleep.
The combination of waking up at random hours (to feed Maya) with going back to work + other changes that have been going on in my life recently, have been keeping me awake at night. I either struggle to fall asleep or I struggle falling back to sleep after waking up for a night feed. My body is confused, and my mind is over-active....

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...

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!)

AND - you can ea...

Butternut squash is one of those vegetables that are always on my shopping list! Its long shelf life makes it very convenient to have at home for those days you find yourself with an empty fridge and have no time or your'e too tired to go to the supermarket. As part of my self care I love having my few go-to 'pantry meals' and this soup definitely meets the requirements - quick, easy to make and oh so delicious!

Here's the recipe: (serves 4-5)

I've been wanting to share this recipe with you guys for so long, it's definitely one of my favourite dishes!

This colourful, nutrient rich, hearty ratatouille served in a bowl with steaming rice is just the perfect comfort dish to cozy up with on a rainy winter day. 

I don't always follow this exact recipe, you can easily adapt it to what's in season. 

Ingredients (for 6-8 servings):

  • 4 medium size aubergines (cut to large cubes)  

  • 2 red onions (f...

If you’ve been following me for a while you probably know by now how much I love my morning smoothies (specially with frozen fruits & veg). But during the cold winter months I don’t crave them as much. Instead, my body craves for something warm and soothing. So, as I’m a big believer in listening to my body and eating according to the seasons, I tend to have warm breakfasts more often at winter.

I can imagine a lot of you think oatmeal when I talk about warm...

Back in my diet days I used to meticulously plan what I’ll eat, when I’ll eat, where I’ll eat and how much. I was convinced that’s the way to go! I was so afraid that if I won’t plan all my meals upfront I might mess up my calorie intake, macro counting or portion controlling. This is one of those things I wish I could tell my younger self - you don’t need to eat perfect to be healthy, all these rules hinder your ability to recognize your body’s internal cu...

We all need to have few easy go-to delicious recipes to keep ourselves nourished during busy times. 

What I love about overnight oats is that it stays good in the fridge for 5 days! so you can make few jars and have it for breakfast or have it as a snack.

1/4 tsp cinnamon

I have a special guest on my blog today! My friend and owner of Yoga Soul - Amera Stanforth. I've been going to Amera's monthly Yin Yoga workshops which are always such a nourishing and relaxing treat, specially as she offers these amazing homemade chocolates at the end of the workshop. Anyway, I've asked Amera if she'd like to share the recipe with you and she said yes!


So here's Amera:
