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.

Free Printable : Weekly Planner

Free Printable : Weekly Planner

Today, I want to share with you something I have been working on. It's called The Mindful Morning Weekly Planner. It's a free download that I have designed and created to help you bring greater clarity, intuition, and mindfulness to your mornings.

This weekly planner was something I have been creating in my head for quite a while. Over the last few months, I have been focusing on decluttering and simplifying various aspects of my life. With this, I have also applied this focus to make my morning rituals a little simpler too.

Going back to basics, my mindful morning means creating more space for things to flow, letting things show up as they need to and allowing greater freedom.

This act of creating a more minimalist lifestyle has helped me release my expectations around holding onto a rigid routine where I end up packing in too many things into my mornings. It has been a really beautiful process to explore simplifying and decluttering my morning rituals. It has spurred me to redefine what mindfulness in my mornings really means to me.

Balance & Why I Lived In Extremes

Balance & Why I Lived In Extremes

Last month, for me, was all about "BALANCE". This notion of balance came up a lot for me. It showed up during my meditations, in the way I looked after my body, what I ate and how I went about my day.

To me, balance is about the yin and yang, the feminine and masculine, the flow of energy around me. For a long time, I never really considered this concept of balance in my life.

I lived in black and white, swinging from one extreme to the other, always looking for a clear answer or solution so I could move forwards.

For example, it felt normal for me to give 110% towards something, for weeks at a time. I would go through phases in my life, where I would be really committed to my yoga routine, eating well, throwing myself into blogging and other commitments. And when I found myself completely exhausted from this,, I would retreat into a reclusive state of doing nothing for weeks, disconnecting myself from everything else that was going on around me.

Things That Inspire Me When Spring Is In The Air

Things That Inspire Me When Spring Is In The Air

Over the last week, I have been excitedly, savouring the sunny afternoons - the subtle hint of warmer weather just over the horizon. As a result, it has re-energised me and inspired me to spend more of my time outside, seeking out blue skies, freshly cut lawns and the smell of blossoms in the air - all the things reminiscent of spring.

And amidst the hours when the sunlight filters through a veil of drifting clouds, I feel this energetic and intoxicating pull towards discovering the new with an open heart. Are you also feeling this pull?

So for today's post, I thought I would share with you a few of things that are inspiring me now that spring is in the air, coaxing me to come out of hibernation to embrace the lightness of the warmer months.
