Leftovers for my first meal of the day. 😊  My 90year old grandma questions why I don't just have a bowl of Raisin Bran, as she does...I smile and say, this is the best thing for my body... Roasted pumpkin (with nooch & herbs), hummus, my alfalfa sprouts, avocado, garlic and dried mint leaves from the garden.  Breakfast fit for a queen, I say 😉  Happy Friday folks, and on this 'Remembrance Day, I ask you to remember you, all that you are.  Be ever so gentle with yourselves, in body & mind… Drying Mint Leaves, Alfalfa Sprouts, Roast Pumpkin, Remembrance Day, Queen, Recipe Of The Day, Raisin, Hummus, Avocado

"How I Finally Got Ok With My Body." Admittedly, it took the better part of 40 years, to get very ok with my precious body, and now it's time to share.  Gone is the strenuous exercise, and so too, the addiction to it.  Gone is the obsession with food.  Gone is the fear of food.  Gone is the shame, guilt, hatred, fear, anger, hate & frustration towards my body.  Here and now, there is only love.  Love for my body, mind, everything between and beyond which makes me me.  So looking forward to… My Precious, 40 Years, Thats Not My, Addiction, Hate, Take That, Mindfulness, How To Get, Exercise

Got myself outdoors to enjoy today's marvelous (not so usual) autumnal weather- a balmy 15C with endless sunshine- Heaven.  Today was one of those days, a little bit slower, where I didn't quite feel inclined to work on anything.  Switched everything off around 6pm, closed my eyes and tuned out.  Don't know how long I was out, but when I got up, nothing could stop me from what was playing in my mind: designing a kimono for an upcoming event, plus a pair of pants I've been mentally… What Is Play, One Of Those Days, Close My Eyes, Upcoming Events, Autumnal, Sunshine, Kimono, Heaven, Outdoors

A little surprise for Juraj -@kral_juraj - who's never in his life had Reese's Pieces. Well, he did today, and three versions, at that.   The salted caramel didn't go down so well, the usual Reese's, was okay, though he loved the peanut butter & coconut...I'll stick with that theme for him   #foodies #chocolate #homemade #peanutbutter #reesespieces #easy #yummy #quick #snack #madewithlove #play #create #share #inspire #love Reese's Pieces, Coconut Peanut Butter, Its Okay, Foodies, Caramel, Inspire, Homemade, Snacks, Play

Been such a full on week, and I'm happy to be back in rest.   After all the madness of prepping and baking copious amounts of cookies, going here and there, my first day off, I slept a lot, with pretty much 24hiuts of being horizontal.  That was Monday, a fasting day, and I decided it was the perfect time to carry on with a seven day water cleanse/fast. I'd been contemplating it for over a month and just passing the spring equinox seemed the right time.  Going very well, and funnily… Sleeping A Lot, Right Time, Equinox, I'm Happy, Cleanse, Madness, Prepping, Rest, Mini Skirts

A shot from our honeymoon weekend in Vienna last month (on the road), so happy....and so happy here and now celebrating today with my dear Juraj.  Said to him earlier, that I didn't come to Slovakia to start a business, or for my ex-boyfriend, for fame or peace...I was supposed to find Him, Juraj, everything else in whatever form has been an accessory. Certainty and forever are Today. Love is today. Nothing more, nothing less, not a thing else.... I'm reminded today that 2016 marks not only… Here And Now, Ex Boyfriend, Starting A Business, Vienna, Peace, Celebrities, Happy, Instagram Posts, Photos

Last one for today   The dynamic duo from This Little Cookie, Modern Alchemy for Emotional Freedom, and everything in between.  I've seen this wonderful man, my dear husband (@kral_juraj), transform right in front of my eyes. He never ceases to surprise me, inspire me, and get the best of out me even on my crappiest days.  We carry on learning from one another, and shaping our relationship to why we've always dreamed of in a partner.  Can't even tell you how blessed I am, we both are, and… Crappy Day, We Carry On, Surprise Me, Alchemy, Inspire Me, My Eyes, Freedom, Cookie, Blessed

Another KISS treat- keep it so simple, that is   A mandolins slicer quickly delivered sweet potato, red cabbage, potato & beetroot chips, which were all baked, alongside a dip made of soaked cashews, avocado, garlic, balsamico, nutritional yeast, salt & pepper, and basil to finish it off.  So simple, pleasing  @nourish_n_nurture - was thinking of you while I made this, even before our chat- so in honor of You  Aaaaaand, @monulienka & @janushkala was also thinking of you guys with th...

Did a lot of food play last week, and much of it had to do with sprouted green lentils & sprouted pinto beans.  This sauce/spread ended up playing part in numerous meals as it was just so delectable. (Series of pics coming). Can't tell you enough how amazing nutritional yeast is. I never imagined adding such a game changer to our food, but seriously this totally had. A vegan burger to come, as well as 'sloppy joes.' This delight had everything but the kitchen sink in it  If I remember… Green Lentils, Pinto Beans, Nutritional Yeast, Game Changer, Kitchen Sink, Salmon Burgers, Sprouts, Meals, Vegan

Whilst honeymooning in Vienna this weekend, Juraj and I had the pleasure of feasting on some truly amazing food, at a very popular vegetarian restaurant called "Tian." Finally, we hit the jackpot with this place- which boasts a Michelin star - and I can still taste this incredible beetroot "tartar," with spelt toast & bell pepper butter.  Of course, as we were enjoying our delights, I deconstructed the meal in my mind to be able to replicate it. I've not done that just yet, however… Michelin Star, Bell Pepper, Beetroot, Vienna, Risotto, Toast, Butter, Vegetarian, The Incredibles

Oh my my...I truly am the luckiest woman in the land. ✨  Sometimes he shows up with a fun pair of socks, or flowers, even fresh new linens for the bed, and today @kral_juraj showed up with all this goodness.  He picked up everything at a new grocery shop in #Bratislava called #Yeme, which is the first of is kind here, which such a vibrant range of produce. I'd be "like a kid in a candy shop," he says (I have yet to go). ❤️ We moved our date days to Thursday's, so this was our date "in,"… Are We Dating, Bratislava, Candy Shop, Linens, Vibrant, Socks, Range, Kid, Fresh

It's true, as Juraj pointed out, I am obsessed with the perfect plant based patty, and with this, I'm getting closer. Soon I'll have the perfect concoction to take along to BBQ's, good enough for any carnivore   It was the usual beginning of a meal. I had no idea what I was going to finish with, and this was the result:  Sprouted green lentils (masoor) Basmati rice  Olives  Sundried tomatoes  Parsley Nutritional yeast  Balsamic vinegar  Mature cheddar to top it off  Yummy, and a work in… Green Lentils, Perfect Plants, Nutritional Yeast, Balsamic Vinegar, Not Good Enough, Olives, Parsley, Cheddar, Sprouts
