Back to basics

This post is dedicated to the coming week, 14th June through to the summer solstice on the 21st. The challenge is to eat ‘from scratch’. I can see many of you wondering ‘so what’s the big deal with that?’

It is for us. Consider this – a strict vegan diet (so no milk, yoghurt or even ghee), no processed food and absolutely nothing that comes out of a box(bye bye coffee, sugar and cereals), not even honey or sweeteners of any kind (all processed!) Now think back to the A-Z baking challenge in April. I’m sure you’ve got the picture.

The interesting bit of the challenge is coming up with what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner and of course, then prepping and cooking it.

Back to basics

Our yoga class is preparing for the coming solstice on the 21st of June and getting our bodies and minds season-ready.

Bring it on! I’m so looking forward to trying out new ingredients and new meal plans.

It’s going to be a busy week so you’ll most probably see time delayed posts.

Watch this space.


PS: Here’s an interesting link I found, if you’d like to learn more about the connection between seasonal diets, yoga and the summer solstice.
