evepostappleOnce upon a time, there was a woman named Eve, who, unable to resist the luring temptation of a fragrant orchard, took a bite of forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge. Perhaps Eve was bored. Perhaps she was ovulating and had a desperate craving for something sweet. Perhaps life in the little garden was becoming stressful or claustrophobic. Perhaps she felt out of control or lacked passion in her life and in order to numb her emotions or soothe herself from Adam's lack of attention or his ambivalence in starting a family, she chose to indulge. Perhaps Eve was an emotional eater. But as Eve soon discovered, neither the bite, nor the whole fruit fulfilled her as she had hoped. Not only did she realize she was naked but that she had contempt for the way she looked. Perhaps Eve suffered with body dismorphia. Eve tried to stop eating the forbidden fruit and eventually avoided eating altogether but that didn't work and she ended up eating until she could no longer breathe. The point of this is that Eve lost her intuitive ability to nourish herself. She no longer had balance in her life and was willing to do any and everything to get that back.

Maybe Eve didn't exist. Maybe the stories that were told are not as important as the stories we tell ourselves.

This blog is dedicated to creating new stories based on the philosophies of whole body nutrition, self-love, intuition, fitness and yoga.

In my journey I have sought to uncover the knowledge and balance which have brought me to a greater awareness of health and this is what I wish to share with you.

    Eat Clean Diet Vegetarian Cookbook - Kale-Wrapped Leek and Sweet Potato Mini Quiches
This recipe blew me away! I decided to make these gorgeous little quiches from the Eat Clean Diet Vegetarian Cookbook for this afternoon’s lunch and they were divine!  
The recipe reminded me of one of my favourite breakfasts: Pesto Scrambled eggs - a recipe that I often make but what I loved about Tosca’s recipe was the inclusion of the succulent sweet potato and slightly crispy kale which gave this recipe a complexity and mix of textures that was so satisfying.
Not only was this recipe easy to make, it was delicious and is the perfect dish to whip up if you are entertaining.  They work as a great powerhouse snack as they are high in protein, contain healthy carbs and are easy to pack.
