Try New Vegetables
Up until about 2 years ago I would have said that I hated rhubarb. That was until I had an ethereal experience with a Coconut Porridge with Stewed Rhubarb at a local café. Now, if I see myself a little Stewed Rhubarb on a café menu I'm sold.
Little did I know that rhubarb came with a whole host of health benefits and had some magnificent healing compounds.
This is why I always encourage people to grab an unfamiliar vegetable and figure out what to do with it later. That usually requires some googling and often results in a new found favourite or at least, an interesting experiment.
What weird veggie do you love?
Spent some much needed time with me, myself and I today. Thanks to my friends for understanding. Life has been feeling a little too overscheduled lately and I relished in waking up naturally, without an alarm. I had a leisurely morning in silence with my coffee. Vacuumed the whole house and mopped all the floors , then started some meal prep in my pajamas. The boys (my dogs) got dropped off, so I got myself dressed and we all went on an hour hike on the trails behind my house, then I managed a short work out. Now I'm showered and fresh and in fresh jammies, ready to dig into this little feast! @ohsheglows Walnut, Pear and Avocado Salad with Marinated Grilled Portobello Mushroom caps. With a glass of vino, of course! 🍷
Cheers to Self Care Saturday. I hope you're all having a beautiful weekend!! Xoxoxo
Happy Hot & Spicy Food Day! We’re making The Flavor Bender’s Spicy Sausage Tuscan Pasta. If you’re feeling brave, turn up the heat even more by using hot turkey sausage and extra crushed red pepper! http://bit.ly/2lhAo1l

Bitch Peas - Bet you didn't know that peas contain 9 grams of protein per cup! While black-eyed peas contain the highest amounts of protein, all peas contain a great variety of essential vitamins and minerals, especially thiamine, folate, niacin, phosphorous and zinc, which are vital to cell growth and development.
Plus they are amazingly delicious in just about everything in my opinion.
I personally keep a lifetime supply in my freezer for a rainy day, or every day....
Have a HAPPY WEEKEND with this dairy-free chocolate and beetroot cake 😍🍫😍🍫 Despite the lack of dairy, these little slices (of joy) taste great and the beetroot adds a surprisingly nice texture. Plus, you only need about 20mins to get this cake in the oven...I'm really not a 'cake' person (or any kind of baking for that matter) but even I found this one easy!
50g raw cacao powder (you can get this in Waitrose/other supermarkets/amazon)
1.5 medium eggs, beaten
100ml melted coconut oil (I used @lucybeecoconut)
70g coconut sugar (I used @bionaorganic)
Few drops of vanilla flavouring
100g beetroot, grated
70g ground almonds
1 tsp baking powder
80g self-raising flour
How to create:
- Grease a shallow cake tin and line with baking parchment. Heat oven to 160C.
- Whisk the cacao powder, eggs, oil, sugar and vanilla flavouring together in a bowl.
- Stir in the beetroot and almonds and mix well.
- Sift in the flour and baking powder and fold through.
- Pour mixture into your cake tin and bake for 40mins. Try and resist the temptation to get it out earlier 🙄.
- Leave cake to cool for 10mins before slicing up and (optional) dipping it into some peanut butter.
I hope you enjoy this one! Please tag me in your photo if you decide to give this one a go and share your results! 😘
So it seems as though I have come up with the perfect solution to my @matcha_mylkbar addiction... Instead of waiting in line for a table, wait outside for takeaway in half the time and pop across the road to grassy nole by Luna Park.
Who doesn't love a picnic? #breakfastinspo of a lifetime
Having company this weekend? Chicken Cordon Bleu Lasagna Roll-Ups with Kale are a great alternative to traditional lasagna, plus the recipe is easily doubled if you’re expecting a crowd (or just a few hungry guests!). Cook the Story brings you the recipe: http://bit.ly/2lciZKF

Flashback to yesterday when we were in the city so that required @chloesfruit bars on our stoop. This is a necessary part of those muggy NYC summer days and Chloe's doesn't have the junk that every other popsicle has 😩.
Hope everyone is having a great Thursday :)

Most days it feels like I live in leggings. Between teaching up to 10 barre classes a week, taking class at the studio and meeting with my Health Coaching clients, my lifestyle demands clothing that is functional and flattering. I know I can always count on @athleta for the perfect fit and to withstand many washes. With my wardrobe taken care of, I feel empowered to show up as my best self for my students and clients.

Some Pure & Simple Yoga to start off my day 🙏🏻 I'm feeling the approaching sign of my womanhood. This calls for me to stay grounded, breathe and be kind to myself. Not every day needs to be one where I push my limits. Sometimes it's necessary to SLOW DOWN and let your progress take root. Taking the time to root myself into the ground helps keep me centered and decreases the hormonal effects on my anxiety. Yoga keeps me sane people! 😍
Practice your daily movement in any which way and tend to those roots. 😘

Eat a salad every day, Trade the sandwiches for leafy green goodness 🥗
Swap the sodas for mineral water (add BCAA's for extra flavour)💧

Crispy Chickpea Croutons 👊🏼These are so addictive you want to eat them all before they make it on the salad - and thats ok - they are full of fiber and protein, and loaded with all sorts of spices, including turmeric, cayenne, and more. They go well on top of my fave kale and avocado salad. Search "Chickpea Croutons" on mariamarlowe.com/blog
Julia Child said it best, “you don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces- just good food from fresh ingredients.” Angel Hair Garden Pasta Salad is a perfect example of that. Try A Helicopter Mom’s recipe tonight. http://bit.ly/2vYhjqf

Here I go, here I go, here I go again. Girl what's my weakness? COOKIES!!! I indulged in cookies on Sat at a BBQ and have zero regrets! Why? Because I planned for it and life is about balance and having FUN!
This adventure has been so exciting and rewarding in more ways than I ever thought it could be. A journey of self discovery, learning, friendship, sweat and FUN! 🤗
In 6 short weeks I have felt and seen a positive change in myself that is beyond words. I have coached friends and family towards these same positive changes. This is NOT about weight loss, it's about how you FEEL in your own skin and in your own mind.
My cross training. My meal plan. It is allowing me to reach goals that I have been working towards for years! It has given me the confidence and ability to TRY ANYTHING! I am unstoppable and it FEELS AMAZING!

You want to know my why?
THIS is why.
I received this card in the clinic mail with the attached letter. This patient drives all the way from Niagara to see me and all the staff and I just love him! To top off his heartfelt card and letter, he dropped of fresh Niagara peaches this morning while passing through on his way to the zoo!! He has also gifted the clinic with a massive plant that he had nurtured for years in a special pot that he deemed "ellephysio worthy". I think he may be my guardian angel 😇
The world needs more Bobs and THIS is why I do what I do!

Getting ready to go back to work next week. I did really good not letting stress from work interfere with my healthy habits last spring but I want to elevate it this year. Im starting off right with filling up my refrigerated and dry snack bins. Tip: if you want to do bins but buy in bulk go ahead and portion and keep them in the bags. #healthysnack#schoolpsychologist#myfitnessjourney#healthyhacks

Bodhi in the Park I'm coming for ya... I'm running the Sydney Marathon on the 17th of September and have already planned to drive up a few days prior and do all the things, all the tourists things and stop at each and every landmark along the way for cheesy photos and some laughs.
I have also strategically begun planning every meal where I want to eat out and which Vego restaurants will contribute to my post-run re-feed.
Thank you @bonnyrebecca for the recommendations and I'll see you soon Sydney!
COCONUT, CASHEW AND GREEN LENTIL DAAL --->> In an attempt to cut down on the amount of meat I eat, I decided to make this vegetarian daal 🍛 I don't normally cook with lentils but found this dish to be really filling and full of flavour! As always, no sugary/salty shop bought sauces used here - everything was cooked from scratch and the spices worked their natural magic 🙌🏼
Ingredients (serves 4):
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 x medium white onion, finely chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 x bay leaf
2 x garlic cloves, finely chopped
3cm ginger, finely chopped
1 chilli, finely chopped
1 tbsp garam masala
1 tsp ground turmeric
250g green lentils
1 x 400ml tin full fat coconut milk
300ml vegetable stock
100g cashew nuts
2 large handfuls spinach
Approx. 8 x tenderstem broccoli spears
4 cups rice or 2 x packets of @cauli_rice
Handful of coriander, chopped
How to create:
- Melt the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3–4 minutes until just soft. Add the cumin seeds, cinnamon, bay leaf, garlic, ginger and chilli and cook for 1 min. Sprinkle in the garam masala and turmeric and fry for 1 min. - Add the lentils to the pan, along with the coconut milk and half of the vegetable stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 15 mins.
- Tip the nuts and remaining stock into a blender and blitz until smooth. Add this to the pan along with the spinach, then stir until the spinach has wilted into the daal. Add the broccoli and leave to simmer for 5 mins.
- Meanwhile, cook the rice. If using cauliflower rice, tip the cauli rice into a pan with a little water and gently fry for 3 mins.
- Sprinkle the coriander over the daal and fish up alongside the cauli rice. Dig in!
