Honey Milk for Restful Sleep

You’ll need:

✨1 cup of your favorite Milk

✨1 tsp+ of Honey

✨Cinnamon

✨Nutmeg

Warm the milk however is best for you. Mix in the honey to taste (I use extra) and add a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, or any spices you like here.

Enjoy!

This is a calming drink that’s common to have warm before bed, but I like it cool as well.

This is a good base for adding some magic too! Enchant your mug, draw sigils with the honey, or whatever works for you.

Butternut Squash, Lentil and Spinach Curry

Ingredients:

  • 320 g butternut squash (just the flesh)
  • 60 g uncooked mixed lentils
  • ½ vegetable stock cube
  • 40 g white onion, chopped
  • 40 g thai red curry paste
  • 200 g full fat coconut milk (½ a can)
  • 200 g chopped tomatoes
  • 150 g young spinach
  • 1 naan bread to serve

Recipe:

  1. First, pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4/350F/180C and line a roasting tray with foil or parchment.
  2. Cut the butternut squash into bite-size chunks, then line up on the tray and spray with a little cooking spray. Roast for 30-40 minutes until tender, stirring halfway.
  3. Meanwhile, rinse the lentils before adding to a pot along with the stock cube and covering with cold water. Bring to the boil, then allow to simmer for 12 minutes.
  4. Heat some cooking spray on a non-stick pan and add the onions. Fry until soft, then add the curry paste, tomatoes and coconut milk. Stir every so often as the sauce thickens (about 10 minutes). Meanwhile, heat up the naan bread in the oven.
  5. Finally, add the squash, lentils and spinach to the curry and season to taste. Cook for another couple of minutes, then serve with the naan bread.

Notes: I adapted this (with little change) from a BBC recipe to cook for my mum on our vegan nights because we both LOVE curry and this was a hit!

Game ingredients: Coconut, Shrimp, Mushroom

Difficulty: Easy, 30 minutes. Serves 3.

I’ve never had coconut milk prior to this dish.

2 cans coconut milk (400mL each)
2 cups chicken broth
2 chicken breasts, thawed
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon dried ginger powder
3 medium tomatoes
4 medium mushrooms (I used Cremini) 
2 cups tailless shrimp, uncooked
1 tablespoon fish sauce
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Chopped cilantro (for garnish)

In a pot, combine the coconut milk, chicken broth, red pepper flakes, chili powder, and ginger powder. Stir and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. 

While the soup heats up, cut the chicken breasts into slices. Add them to the soup once it’s boiling and cook for about 10-15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. You can test by removing a piece of chicken and cutting it in half to ensure there’s no pink inside.

As the chicken cooks, cut up the tomatoes into small chunks and the mushrooms into slices. Add them to the pot along with the shrimp and cook for an additional 10 minutes. 

Add the fish sauce, lime juice, and brown sugar. Cook for yet another 10 minutes on low heat with the lid on.

(There’s chicken and shrimp in there, I swear. They just kinda sank.)

Serve into bowls and garnish with chili powder and cilantro. You can also add a cup of chopped cilantro to the soup if you so choose (some love it, some hate it. It’s completely optional).

The soup has a perfect blend of silky soup and chunky vegetables and meats. It’s really tasty and filling.

RAINY DAY SURVIVAL KIT

You will need to…

  • Curl up with a book that makes you drown in it and tugs you up from the dark waters all the same, such as Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur.
  • Create a playlist—not an awful collection of mainstream pop but something you can put on repeat and never get tired of. If it’s what you struggle with, anything from The 1975 and The Neighbourhood works perfectly fine.
  • Make yourself a mug of hot water that won’t burn your tongue, because believe it or not, you’re better off with it. (Optional: a tablespoon of honey and some essence of lemon)
  • Bring blankets, even if it’s still summer. You can turn on the air conditioner.
  • Now lock the door, because everyone deserves some alone time while listening to the sound of raindrops colliding onto the windows and hatching a personal pipe dream.

“Here’s a recipe for a type of tea my dad uses to sleep! and yes, it’s perfectly safe to drink!”

Some other methods i find most useful are:

  • stretching before bed
  • cut down on late night snacks! make an effort to get up during the day to eat; this will make your body crave more food around the day time.
  • try and get a routine going for during the day, like going for a morning walk etc.
  • Try to avoid your bed as much as possible during the day! I understand that it may be really difficult to do, but if you associate your bed with sleep you will fall asleep more easily!
  • Keep your window and/or blind open! obviously don’t do this if its snowing outside, but when the room is colder than your bed it becomes ideal for sleeping. (like a warm nest) Having the blind open during the day will stop the increase of melatonin (brain chemical/sleepy drug) as the darkness is what aids in melatonin’s production.

I hope this helps your trainer! @rioludaily
