Hope to see everyone here on this sunny Saturday :)
Inspired by Dutch Poffertjes (small pancakes) that I didn’t get to try! Can I just say so many foods and not enough time? The struggles of a foodie. 😩 I know you guys feel me on this! So to skip feeling FOMO, I whipped these babies up! This is my favorite go to pancake recipe that’s SO simple literally anybody could do it. (I mean it this time @nhat_85!)
Sweet potato pancakes: 1 medium sweet potato and 2 eggs. I added @rebbl’s golden milk for a hint of turmeric and sunshine! Other optional add ins: cinnamon, vanilla extract, superfood powders, & mashed banana. Peel your potato and poke holes with a fork/knife. Splash water on it and heat it in the microwave for about 5-7 min. until you can easily poke a fork through it. Mix in 2 eggs and create your batter! Try to mash up all the sp chunks the best you can! Add any additional ingredients to your liking and cook like normal pancakes! I used @traderjoes coconut oil to cook with.
Toppings: chia seeds, unsweetened coconut chips, @purely_elizabeth pumpkin cinnamon granola, @crazyrichardspb chunky pb, and bee pollen.
I wish I just always made my own golden lattes because they always taste awesome and sunny and happy and yum and it would mean that I wouldn't need to spend $5+ on them at a cafe that doesn't truly love them as much as I do.
But if I always did that... What hot beverage would I even get when someone asks me, "hey Emma, want to go out for a coffee?" I don't drink coffee anymore.
And I am very picky about my chais.
And going out for a hot beverage with someone isn't merely about getting a beverage. It's catching up and investing in the other. While drinking that tasty beverage.
So I guess you could say that you are paying for the fun company of the other person! 🙌🏻 Which... now that I type this up... doesn't sound quite right.
I'm sorry - I am very tired right now and I think I have over-thought this whole "hot beverage" thing.
So forget all of those words and enjoy this happy looking drink that I definitely enjoy having and definitely enjoy spending too much money on when I go out because although it's the same it's sort of not? ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️
The people who produce our products, harvest and grow our food are often enslaved in poverty due to corporate greed - working all the hours for a wage that they cant survive on, child labour, exposure to life threatening pesticides, insecticides, dangerous machinery, rotten working conditions... the list goes on. What changes would we have to make if we collectively shouted that all workers rights matter? The #blockfriday campaign has been set up my @liviafirth at @ecoage to protest against the mindless mass consumerism promoted with #blackfriday campaigns as advertisers scramble to sell us something when our beautiful Mother Earth can not keep up and people are dying for our food/technology/clothing. Use the hashtag #blockfriday next week to start a backlash against these tactics and encourage others to consume less 🌿

➡️ This is my go to fall drink. Not only does it help repair your body it helps protect you against fall & winter bugs. The turmeric will assist the liver in its detoxification abilities in addition to putting out fire in the body induced by inflammation- lack of sleep, stress, poor diet, alcohol, processed sugar etc. ➡️The compound curcumin induces the formation of a primary liver detoxification enzyme called glutathione S-transferase. It also helps regenerate damaged liver cells.
➡️ A study in the Sept 2014 issue of Life Sciences found that the curcumin in turmeric offers beneficial properties that appear to accelerate the wound healing process by soothing irritation and oxidation.

One of my favorite things that we did on holiday was to visit the Spice Gardens in Penang! Penang is known for its fabulous spicy food so this place had everything you could imagine! Obvs there was a gift shop that I could’ve went mad in but I showed some restraint...! They also grow the sweetener stevia & sell it in dried leaf format, I tried it while we were there and it’s great! Will see how it fairs in builders tea 👍🏼 #spicegardens#penang#turmeric#chilli#stevia
Ok so haldi doodh is a thing in the east London hipster world now. This would have been so uncool — if not unthinkable- just a few years ago! @hannaan47 could you imagine saying to a Hackney barista even two years ago, “right so there is bright yellow spice called ‘haldi’, could you heat some up in milk for me? It’s great for a cold.” #turmeric#broadwaymarket#turmericlatte#haldi#haldiainstituteoftechnology
Instead of turning to Sprite & saltines the next time you’re feeling under the weather, make yourself a quick bowl of filling, nutrient-dense soup instead! 🍵 Consuming processed, sugary foods when you’re sick can actually suppress your immune system further and lower your ability to fight infection! 😷 I created this soup using bone broth, veggies, turmeric, and tons of herbs (basically just threw my entire spice drawer into the pot) and I’m convinced it helped eliminate an awful sore throat I had earlier this week.. well that combined with drinking 3x my body weight in water daily 😂 #AIWrecipes#soupforthesoul#foodismedicine

This is actually an Ayurvedic (Ancient Indian) recipe. ^_^ The main ingredient: turmeric is the wonder spice (or fairy dust if you’re trying to get your kids to drink it haha). Although it actually tastes really yummy! You feel like you’re all cozy in a cottage wrapped with some blankets beside the fireplace on a rainy day! Now that’s what I call chilling in the Fall season.

🌬This colder season we are diving into can be a little less forgiving to our skin this time of year. Just as our ancestors did hundreds of years ago, we should follow their lead with using mother nature as one of our closest allies when it comes to skincare. Read why we ❤️ adding turmeric into our skincare in our latest blog. Link in bio.
