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 Sweet & Salty Coconut Butter Popcorn

Just incase you have the Sunday Night movie munchies…

I am a total movie freak, always have been. I adore watching films and am in total bliss when I am doing so, especially when there is popcorn involved. 
In the theater, you can always find me pulling huge bags of Zain’s Caramel Corn out of my purse and passing it down the isle to my friends who have stopped buying movie theater popcorn altogether.  They adore my healthy popcorn recipes and so do I.
On Friday night, we went to see the Great and Powerful OZ and of course, I got busy with my stovetop popper.  I am not entirely sure if it was wizardry or alchemy at work but I invented the best freaken popcorn EVER and had to share it with you.
If you love coconut you are going to go crazy for this recipe.  It’s super healthy and takes less than 10 minutes to make.  

*makes 1-2 servings
Ingredients:
5-6 Cups Air Popped Corn
OR
1/2 Tsp Coconut Oil + 1/2 Cup Organic Pop Corn Kernels
21/2 Tbsp Organic Coconut Butter
1/4 Cup Raw Unpasteurized Honey
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
1/16 Tsp Pink Himalayan Crystal Salt OR Sea Salt 
Directions:
1. If popping your own corn, use your air popper or stove top popper with coconut oil until you have 6 cups of fluffy popcorn.
2. Meanwhile in a small sauce pan, warm honey on very low heat and whisk in coconut butter.
3. Drizzle honey mixture over popcorn whilst mixing and toss well. 
4. Mix in unsweetened coconut flakes. Serve warm or refrigerate for 10 mins to harden.
