Another day, another NOURISH BOWL👅🌿✨ eating healthy doesn’t have to boring, bland or unsatisfying in any way. There’s so many endless different ways of cooking & preparing fruit, grains, legumes + veggies. Endless different combinations, herbs and spices to try. So many different cuisines which base their meals around plant foods, a wealth of recipes online, in books and still waiting to be created…the limit is only your imagination!🌟
In my bowl: baked sweet potato + pumpkin, spicy falafel (recipe is in my Ebook!), greens and steamed veg, with a generous drizzle of homemade BBQ sauce😋 #eatmoreplants

3 good things

- my work friend took a recipe book from the shelf and she’s short sighted so during our half hour break I had to read it out to her as she kept mental notes she didn’t even need a pen I was impressed she’s also going to bake me a bacon and egg pie for when I see her again next Saturday and tonight I was reminded of how much it means for both her and I to have a woman to work alongside and talk with amongst all these men and even tho she’s like 58 she told me if I ever leave this place before her she’ll hate me forever so we made a pact that we have to resign at the same time which sucks for me bc I want to leave but…. Looks like I’ll be juggling 2 jobs at once lads

- I sweated a lot n even tho I hate work I felt good for being physically active n when I lifted the boxes of nine 1.5Ls with ease compared to when I could barely carry them above my head when I first started…I was like…. Whoa.. She’s powerful

- I was listening to this slow song and I thought I was in the mood for it but my body lied to me so I played this fast paced n happy tune n now I’m 🌞


The Yashim detective series features an intrepid Turkish sleuth who whips up marvelous feasts in between solving crimes. In the novels, new dishes pop up often enough to leave readers perpetually ravenous, and many readers wrote author Jason Goodwin to beg for the recipes. Now they have them – Goodwin’s new cookbook is called Yashim Cooks Istanbul.

Ring In 'Lemony Snicket' On Netflix With A Series Of Unfortunate Recipes
In the children's books, food is practically a supporting character. So why not welcome the poor Baudelaire orphans with a delightfully miserable repast while binge-watching the new show?

The rather unfortunate Baudelaire children cooked and ate some interesting meals throughout the Series. Enjoy the Netflix series with tastier versions of what the Baudelaire children would eat (and yes, this includes Aunt Josephine’s chilled cucumber soup).
