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.

    6 Ways to Enjoy Avocado for Breakfast!

    Avocados are one of the healthiest fats you can consume.  They are a considered to be a superfood and are chalk full of carotenoids, fiber, monosaturated fats, and contain oleic acid which keeps you feeling fuller longer.  They are fabulous for your hair and skin as well.

    Avocados keep you lean and help to slim your belly plus they add a unique complexity to every recipe!

    Try adding avocados to your breakfast to mix things up and get your nutrient kick first thing!

    Here are some of my favourite signature recipes:

    Avo-Overnight Oats - Mix oats, greek yogurt, chia seeds, vanilla stevia or raw honey and a bit of almond milk together in a jar and refrigerate. In the morning, stir and mash in some avocado! 

    Raw Chocolate Avocado Mousse - Mash avocado, raw cacao, natural vanilla or vanilla pod and stevia until smooth.  Add cacao nibs and a scoop of raw, chocolate protein if desired.

    Sunny Avocado - Scoop out the seed and a little of the avocado. Crack an egg in the hole and bake until the egg is poached to your liking. Season with crystal salt & pepper.

    Avocado Superfood Smoothie - Blend avocado, coconut butter, coconut water, coconut meat, unsweetened cashew or hemp milk, banana and pistachios or pistachio butter.

    Avocado & Lachs - On a sprouted whole grain toast, mash avocado and season with crystal salt & pepper.  Lay salmon Lachs over the toast and top with soft poached eggs or buffalo mozzarella cheese.

    Avo & Ovo Pizza - On a sprouted, whole grain, toasted pita, mash avocado, minced garlic & a bit of lime juice.  Lay grilled egg(s) overtop and  season with crystal salt & pepper. Cut into wedges.
