Free Printable Self Care Reminder

Free Printable Self Care Reminder

Since the beginning of this year, I have been feeling a strong pull towards creating, doing, moving forwards, and taking action. This energy is incredibly motivating and exciting, and as a result I have found that my mind is often racing with new ideas. Sometimes it feels like my mind is constantly planning where I will be 6 months or 12 months.  

That is why self care is so important during these times where we are inspired and in flourish; to stay present, to stay grounded and to maintain awareness. Self care reminds you to take a step back and perceive the world from a more internal place. It helps you gain clarity over what it is that you truly want in your life versus something which isn't completely right for you.

I ensure that my daily dose of self care starts in the stillness of the morning, when I do my yoga, or when I meditate, or when I enjoy a cup of tea to myself.

Recipe : Vegetarian Macro Bowl

Recipe : Vegetarian Macro Bowl

I love making this delicious recipe on a warm summer night because it is both nourishing and light. This is my own version of the macro bowl which I have perfected over time, originally inspired by the beautiful Macro Dragon Bowl from our local raw vegan restaurant Yongs, located in Fitzroy, Melbourne.

Over the course of this year, it has quickly become one of my favourite dishes to cook for the people I care about. The thing that I love about this dish is that it isn't as simple as just throwing three ingredients together and tossing something together in a few minutes.

This dish does take a little time and love to prepare all the ingredients. However, I find this such a lovely exercise in staying present and simply savouring the stillness of each moment.

Recipe 6 Nut Mylk Flavours

Recipe 6 Nut Mylk Flavours

I love using nut milk in my recipes for my soups and smoothies. However, nut milk is especially perfect when you use it for your porridge or for your morning tea. 

I love the subtle sweet and earthy flavour that nut milk has. Recently, I have been making my own nut milk instead of purchasing it from the shops. Not only is it more cost effective, but it is also simple and easy to make. 

I also love that I can now create my own version of homemade nut milk. Because of it's subtle flavours, we can create something truly interesting and delicious using some "add ons" to go with our nut milk. This really aligns with my love for creative experimentation in the kitchen.

My mindful philosophy for cooking is all about letting go. I had a conversation this week with my friend around cooking about letting go of our expectations that meals have to be perfect. When we cook, sometimes we feel that we need to follow recipes perfectly in order to get the best results.

But, I think the most joyful aspects of cooking is in the process itself - it's when you let go, and allow your creative intuition to take over. 

So with this in mind, I have left a portion of this recipe largely up to you. I have provided some suggestions to spark some ideas - but really, this recipe is all about experimenting and experiencing different things to find what you really love.
