Hey you!!! Yes, you! You gorgeous human being, you. I just wanted to let you know that you are SO fucking beautiful. Drop-dead, head-turning, word-stumbling gorgeous. You are so beautiful in fact, you may not even be able to comprehend it. Every inch of you, every fold, every edge, every arch and round of your body is so unbelievably perfect and you are good enough. You are enough. There is never a need for you to question your worth or your value or your beauty. You are so fucking perfect. Inside and out.  Act like...

Potato-Mushroom Soup with Rosemary in Recipes

FullSizeRender (1)

As many of you know I absolutely love making soup - it's just so easy! This is a new favorite creation of mine that's filling, nurturing, easy to make and absolutely delicious. Give it a try with different kinds of mushrooms (why not chanterelles if you have some available?) - the taste will differ depending on what variety you use. Enjoy! Ingredients: 1 large yellow onion 300 grams fresh mushrooms (any kind! I used a mixture of white button, oyster and mini portobello mushrooms) 600 gram fingerling potatoes (or any kind you have at home)...

Don't dig up in doubt what you planted in faith.  2016: I take care of business by taking care of me. This is my resolution, my intention, my affirmation of the year. I take care of business by taking care of me. I've found myself working to the point of draining myself all throughout the past year. There is always so much to do, so much to create. Never not working. 2016. I choose to stand in my own power - with love. This year is for setting roots. For slow, steady movement. For being...

Green Pea Soup with Mint in General, Recipes

P1040056

This is one of my favourite soups to make for one specific reason: its ridiculously easy. So easy in fact, you won't believe it! It's bright green and deliciously filling but fresh and light at the same time. I got the original recipe from my friend and inspiration for all things food Ella Woodward but I had to tweak it a bit because I couldn't find the ingredients needed here in Aruba... When you live on a Caribbean island you have to work with what you've got! Ella's recipe calls for Cannellini Beans but I...

Do you ever buy more produce than you can finish? This happens to me a few times a month; I end up with overripe avocados or brown bananas and while I nearly cry finding out my avocados won't be good for guac anymore, brown bananas actually make me happy! Why? Because overripe bananas equal VEGAN BANANA BREAD. Every time. Here is my favourite recipe! This loaf is perfectly dense, moist and delicious and its so easy to make. Oh, and the darker the bananas, the better! Since the bananas are already so sweet we'll only...

On Self Worth in General

"If you are willing to look at another person’s behavior toward you as a reflection of the state of their relationship with themselves rather than a statement about your value as a person, then you will, over a period of time cease to react at all." - Yogi Bhajan One of the most important realizations we can ever have in life is understanding our own self worth. If you constantly define your value as a person after what people tell you, you are destined to live a life of unhappiness.  Fact is, you cannot control...
