Baby I’m home xoxo Although I don’t think I’m quiiiiiite ready for it. Sri Lanka was beyond beautiful and I’m so excited to share a few photos with you over the coming days – promise not too many – PROMISE!!! Actually to manage that (*travel pic flood) I started an album separately on the gram for my hobby photography (people, travel, life) and all the other things that happen you know…beyond the food on my plate.
But let’s talk about plates for now and how we’re going to fill them this year. I’ll share with you some on mine…
Last year I tuned into how I was feeling (which was injured, frustrated and suffering digestive discomfort at the beginning of the year), and reduced meat and poultry, swapping for heeeeaps of plant based meals plus fish, dairy and eggs.
2018 also saw a final farewell to coffee for me because frankly the real deal coffee was not doing good things for me emotionally (anxious, trembly, faaaaar too heightened) and I’m a better human for it. I still drink (and bloody love) tea, it doesn’t have the same slap in the face as coffee does for my body thanks to the role of tannins in the tea.
This year I’m going to invest even more into my knowledge (with a strong focus on paediatric nutrition, early childhood and reproductive health) and I’ll absolutely keep sharing those learnings with you. The more knowledge and empowerment I can offer you in nutrition, food, health, preventing disease, the happier and more fulfilled I will be.
Oh, I almost forgot my plate! So I whipped this one up the day after arriving home from Lanka with only a few bits and pieces in the fridge, freezer and some tasty toppers in the pantry. On my plate : grated carrot, frozen peas, kimchi, boiled eggs, cashew cheese, avocado, lime, hemp seeds, spiced sunflower seeds, avocado, evoo, lime, sea salt, pepper and keeping the chilli flavours from our trip alive and kicking, some chilli flakes to finish! Chilli flakes are the newest feature next to our salt and pepper on the bench top, to remind me to use them more often than before – such a yummy addition to the meal.
Alright – so now I’ve given you the juice on what’s on my plate this year ahead – tell me what’s on yours? I’d love to know. Let’s connect more. Much love, Jacq xx
