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.

    So I walked out of an amazing Kundalini Yoga class this morning, to see ladies (some of whom were in my class) with huge smiles on their faces carrying what looked like heavy boxes and making their way down the street. Interesting, I thought.
I headed up to WholeFoods to get my usual, a green juice, but something was different today.  I looked over and there they were…the stacks of boxes, towering over the crowd of Lulu clad women as they struggled to lift what they could and make their way to the check out.
Yep, organic, farm fresh blueberries were going for a $1.99 a pint and in my city, that is REASON TO CELEBRATE, period.
I got home wonder what I should make first, blueberry jam, pancakes, pie? I was so confused I just sat and stared at them for awhile and then made a delicious smoothie, followed by this…
It was so freakin’ good, I just had to share the recipe with all y’all.
Zain’s Vegan Vanilla Bean & Blueberry Ice Cream
*Makes 1 Serving, I made a big batch by increasing the recipe by 4X
Ingredients:
1 Cups Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/4 Cup Light Coconut Cream (ready made or refrigerate a can of coconut milk over night and use the thick cream portion)
1 Tbsp Coconut Butter
20-25 Drops Vanilla Creme Stevia 
1/4 Vanilla Bean (pods) OR 1/4 Tsp Natural Vanilla
1/16 Tsp Himalayan Crystal Salt
1 Cup Fresh OR Frozen Organic Blueberries
1 Tbsp Unsweetened Blueberry Jam
1 Scoop Vanilla SUNWARRIOR (optional but not necessary, I just wanted a higher protein ice cream)
Directions:
1. Combine ALL ingredients in a bowl until mixed throughly.
2. Freeze in a shallow dish until completely frozen.
3. Remove and blend - For best results, use a VitaMix or another Commercial Blender
