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.

    With kids going back to school next week, ensuring they have snacks that not only taste good but are good for them can be a daunting task for any parent. My Divine *Five Ingredient* Peanut Butter Cookies are kid-tested and approved, and will make a great addition to any lunch box. Plus they’re sooo easy to make (so feel free to snag yourself a few).  Zain’s *5 Ingredient* Peanut Butter Cookies *makes a dozen cookies Ingredients: 1 Cup Chunky Organic Peanut Butter 1 Whole Egg (vegans sub for 2 Tbsp Egg Replacer) 1 Tbsp Baking Powder 1 Cup Sucanat  1 Tsp Natural Vanilla *note: if you don’t have sucanat, you can sub for coconut sugar OR 1/2 cup flour of your choice, I like oat or coconut flour and 3 packets stevia Directions: 1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees 2. Blend all ingredients together until a thick well mix dough forms (I do this by hand but an electric mixer works great too) 3. Roll into balls (as large or small as you wish) and place on parchment covered baking sheet 4. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden. Once removed, use a fork to make decorative designs and allow to cool for 15 minutes until cookies harden. *additional ingredients: 1/2 cup sugar-free chocolate chips (naughty naughty but so yummy yummy), 4 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 50 raisins.
