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.

    Zain’s Breakfast Balance Bowl
I usually go for breakfasts like this when the weather gets warmer but this morning I felt like something lighter and nutrient dense.
I started out with a fresh pressed fruit and vegetable juice followed by what I like to call a balance bowl because it is rich in vitamins, nutrients and contains all of the macronutrients to keep me satisfied.
Ingredients:
1 Cup Organic Greek Yogurt, Kefir OR Coconut Yogurt (I use this)
2 Capsules Probiotics
1/2 Tbsp Sunflower Seeds
1/2 Tbsp White Chia Seeds
1 Tsp Raw Manuka Honey 50+ *vegan swap for Raw Maple Syrup
1 Tbsp Homemade Raspberry Jam
1/2 Cup Boiled Quinioa, Pearled Barley OR Whole Grain of Your Choice
1 Tsp Hemp Oil or Raw Sport Oil of Your Choice
1 Scoop Protein Powder (I use Vanilla Sunwarrior)
Directions:
1. Assemble all ingredients in a bowl and enjoy with your favourite cup of tea or coffee.
