SWEET CHAI-LD OF MINE ~ Started the morning w a chai overnight rolled oat pudding made from Ceylon Cinnamon hoarded from Sri Lanka 🤗 Sweet and a a little spiced like having a heartwarming conversation on a rainy day with a random stranger that turned out supercharged with chemistry. A spur in the moment inspiration, healthy as a base because cinnamon itself is a superfood, made better topped w all kinds of goodness: goji berries, blueberries, strawberries, bee pollen and almond flakes 🌟🥣
Tried and tested from fun fact learnt: Ceylon Cinnamon also known as Zeylanium differs from Cassia (the more widely circulated variety from China, Indonesia and Vietnam) you can find in local markets. These tastes subtle yet is significantly sweeter and has much less courmarin which makes it a superfood. More fragile and easily broken with fingers, it is also great as toppings. It is 10 times the price though and much less accessible! If one has limited supply, I’d recommend these for dessert/ beverage/ light recipes while Cassia for stewed/ cooked dishes mainly based on taste
I have been craving halloumi ALL week after a coworker had some with their lunch on Tuesday. I am one of those people who can’t just get over a craving until they have satisfied it so it was definitely going to be on the menu this weekend! I decided to whip up a halloumi and egg breakfast bowl and it did not disapoint!!
Pan fried halloumi (I seasoned mine with a little bit of dried oregano and rosemary), scrambled eggs, fried tomatoes and onions on a bed of spinach. Simple, tasty and filling!
Hope you are all having a great weekend so far!

You may or may not have noticed a lack of brunch snaps on my instagram this month. I’m in full saving mode for Europe which means no eating out (and no online shopping 😭) I’ve also been focusing on getting more whole foods into my diet and avoiding processed snacks and supplements (I ate way too many protein bars in 2017) this morning I had time to make this postworkout chocolate smoothie bowl 🤤
Smoothie base: 125ml soy milk, 100g steamed then frozen cauliflower, 100g frozen banana, 6g cocoa powder, 2g stevia, 1 scoop collagen peptides.
Toppings: I had no fresh fruit so I used frozen raspberries and 20g of my fave granola.
Macros: 46g carbs, 8g fat, 28g protein, 375 calories 😋

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut up sweet potato and roast until semi-soft.
Cook quinoa according to package directions. I had about 2 cups left for other meals.
Cook egg to liking
Cook bacon in skillet.
When quinoa is done, drain, add olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place egg, bacon, avocado, and sweet potato on quinoa. Enjoy!
My roommate (who is doing her very first #Whole30 !) was craving cereal so we came up with this breakfast bowl. Raw cashews, fresh blueberries and banana, freeze dried strawberries and apples (scored at @aldiusa ) topped with coconut and a little bit of almond butter—all over @califiafarms almond milk. Super yummy and compliant! It’s been on the rotation a lot this week 🤤
