Most of us take almost everything around us for granted and feel self-entitled. This attitude has made most of us develop a tunnel vision against the blessings around us. We throw caution to the wind and expect everything to be the same as always or even better. We live a life where we throw tantrums at the most silliest discomfort forgetting that the little discomfort which we are feeling is someone else’s reality. A reality which they have to endure for as long as they remain on the face of planet earth.
For a couple of weeks now, I have been finding it hard to sleep all through the night. My loved ones know how much I love my sleep. If permitted, I could sleep all day and still sleep all night. I find sleep as a means of escape from noise and a way to rejuvenate my mind and body.

Yesterday, I also attempted a pumpkin

Life is a gift to be lived to the fullest and enjoyed in which ever way we please. It is imperative to take care not to hurt anyone in the process of living. I have never met a soul that does’nt love their freedom. I love my freedom to the point that I do not let anything comprise it. By definition, yoga means to join or unite the mind and body which is what I consider ultimate freedom.
I have never felt how limitless my freedom is until yoga came into my life. Yoga has been a true blessing in my life. The more time

I came across quinoa about four years ago when I started my health journey. Being vegan, has opened me up to an array of and variety of foods. My palate has changed a lot to the point that I’m using very minimal salt in my cookings. I have always eaten quinoa as a savory meal and never thought of having it as a sweet meal or for breakfast.
This parfait can be made overnight and tucked away in the refrigertor and eaten as breakfast while on the go or at work. Quinoa is

Spending time doing what we love, things that bring us joy can transform whatever bad mood we’re in to a much better uplifted

Most people are of the notion that yoga is for certain types of people.

Some females have also told me that yoga is not for them as they are not flexible enough. I have also heard people say that yoga is for people who are not strong enough to stand the heat in the

Prior to a couple of weeks ago I have never heard of or seeen soy flour. My introduction to soy flour came about when my mum called me on the phone one evening that she found a bread made with soy and she would like to know if I have any opinion about it as she would like to try it out. Out of my curiosity and excitement, I told my mum to buy it which she did.

Having an attitude of gratitude is focusing on what we have and finding contentment in it rather than complaining about what we don’t have. While growing up, people around me always said that it was good to give gratitude. They always told me that the more gratitude you give, the more happiness, contentment and abundance you will attract into your life. Fast forward to adulthood, I have learned to always give gratitude for the good things in my life and the not so good.
