Miso Ramen With Shitake Mushrooms and Kale

You Will Need: 1 tsp sesame oil + 1 tsp cooking oil (I use coconut) 1 clove garlic finely chopped…

Makeup For Staying At Home

I’ve been making it a point to keep somewhat of a regular schedule even though I’m mostly at home these days.  It’s good to keep routines like meal times, exercise and sleep; our bodies appreciate it.  I’ve been starting my day as I would any work day;  healthy breakfast, shower, skincare, makeup and wearing something…

Make Ahead Vegan Breakfast Burritos

Broccoli Veggie Stir-Fry With Cashews

Every Thursday I sauna; an hour of seated meditation, drinking litres of electrolytes and lots of sweating.  I love what it does for my skin and mind. It also helps that just 30 minutes burns up to 600 calories so I don’t work out on sauna days and eat as much as I want, bonus!…
