Chocolate chip cookies with a view. 
@benja83 and I baked these #vegan #dairyfree #glutenfree chocolate chip cookies then sat and ate them looking at this view. 
Simple pleasures 🍪 🌲

This was the view from the back door of our holiday cottage at 7.45am this morning. It’s breathtakingly stunning and views like this are just one of the reasons we choose to escape daily life and come to the Lake District every year. Others include the friendliness of the locals, the invigorating walks and the sense of space and calm we find up here.⠀
⠀
I’m looking forward to taking some time out in nature with my loved ones (fiancé and dog!), connecting with them and myself, slowing down and switching off. So I’ll be on social media a bit less than normal over the next week so I can spend more time looking up and out at views like this, rather than down at my phone and the online world within.⠀
⠀
Have a great week ahead wherever you are and whatever you’re doing. If you’d like to try a digital detox at home or on holiday check out my blog post (link in bio) for some tips and inspiration. ⠀

Lunch today was this perfect autumnal warming soup. ⠀
⠀
I roasted sweet potatos and carrots, while cooking red lentils in filtered water with chunks of fresh ginger. After 25 minutes I put everything in a blender, mixed then transferred back to the pan. ⠀
Added coconut milk, seasoned with salt and pepper and warmed through. So quick and simple but so delicious and warming on this chilly Thursday.⠀

In London visiting beautiful people and treated myself to a beautiful lunch @urbanpantrylondon ⠀
⠀
This is their #vegan brekkie with mushrooms, butternut squash, avocado, tomatoes, spinach and salad. A delicious combination of flavours and veggies but missing some #plantprotein ⠀
⠀
I’ll need to get some in me another way to help keep me balanced. Protein is so important for so many processes in our body and helps keep us feeling fit and full! ⠀

The recipe for these super simple oven-baked blueberry pancakes is now on the website - link in bio.⠀
⠀
Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan pancakes which are foolproof (which is good for me as I was never great at flipping pancakes in a pan) mean you can have perfect mini pancakes any day of the week for breakfast or even just as a snack!⠀
⠀
The batter will keep for 3-4 days if stored in a sealed container in the fridge. You can also cook the pancakes and then reheat in the oven to make this an even easier and faster breakfast option, but personally, I think they taste best cooked fresh 🥞 ⠀
Let me know if you try the recipe and what you think. I'm going to experiment with some other flavour combinations too so let me know your favourite pancake flavours and toppings in the comments below and you might see it on the website soon!⠀

Breakfast this morning was a berry smoothie topped with homemade granola which I made last night in about 25 minutes. It's so easy to make. I simply added:⠀
⠀
240g oats⠀
60g sunflower seeds⠀
60g pumpkin seeds⠀
40g linseeds (also called flaxseeds)⠀
4 tbsp Desiccated coconut⠀
40g pecans⠀
20g walnuts (I would have added more but this was all I had left!)⠀
2 tbsp melted coconut oil⠀
⠀
To a large mixing bowl, stir well and then put it on a baking tray in the oven at 160 (gas mark 3) for 20 minutes - regularly shake the tray to move the granola around to prevent it burning! Then store in an air tight jar!

Then this morning I made a smoothie with:⠀
⠀
Bananas⠀
Avocado⠀
Frozen blueberries⠀
Almonds⠀
Homemade almond milk

Poured it into my glass jar cup and topped it with granola. I have to admit I did go back and add more granola half way through because it was so yummy! .

We had the first frost of the year this morning and after coming back from the dog walk with frozen feet I needed something to warm me up. This cinnamon and coconut porridge topped with pear and coconut flakes did the job perfectly. ⠀

These are my bonfire night inspired toffee apple energy balls. A healthier version of what you might get on bonfire night! Perfect to pack and take with you to a firework display or enjoy in the cosy comfort of home. ⠀
⠀
They are gluten, dairy and refined-sugar free plus they take just 10 minutes to prepare (+ 1-2 hours to set).⠀
⠀
We'll be at home this year making sure the puppy doesn't freak out about all those bangs. But I quite like the idea of being cosy at home and tucking into 1 (or 3) of these little beauties.⠀
⠀
If you'd like to try making them check out the recipe on my website - link in bio⠀
⠀
What are you planning this bonfire night?⠀

As it's bonfire weekend my breakfast this morning was this caramel apple porridge. ⠀
⠀
I had some caramel sauce (made by blending dates, almond butter and water) leftover from a recipe I was testing. So this morning I decided to top my oat and sunflower seed porridge with chopped apple and the caramel sauce and it was delicious!⠀

I ordered a few things on Amazon yesterday which arrived yesterday much to my excitement so I thought I would share what I picked up with you...⠀
⠀
I invested in a bright pink @leuchtturm1917 bullet journal after testing out whether the bullet journal approach worked for me in a plain old notebook. I've found using a bullet journal great because it combines my love of organisation and lists with an outlet for my creativity. Plus all my lists and plans are in one place rather than spread across multiple notebooks and diaries. So I allowed myself to invest in this beautiful 'official' #bulletjournal for 2018. I can't wait to start filling up the pages with dreams, goals and plans for the year ahead.⠀
⠀
I also purchased 'Little Black Book: A Toolkit for Working Women' by @oteghauwagba - as recommended by @theannaedit It was less than £4 and hopefully will help me feel even more empowered as a self-employed working woman! I'll let you know what I think once I've read it.⠀
⠀
Finally is this natural reusable beeswax wrap from @beeswrap (swipe right to see photo) to replace the cling film in our life which is not only packed with toxins but is a complete environmental nightmare and incredibly wasteful. We're trying to create not only a toxin-free home packed with natural products but also a more sustainable home which produces less waste. So this is one small step we've taken towards this goal. ⠀

It's all too easy to get so swept up in where you're going that you forget to look back at how far you've come.⠀
⠀
I was reminded this weekend to be grateful for how far I have come in my recovery from #cfs by a beautiful post about hope by @mindfullyevie⠀
⠀
Before I become ill running was like therapy for me. I loved it. And while there are many things about the pre-CFS me I didn't want to go back to, running was one of the things I wanted to have back in my life. ⠀
⠀
When I was ill I would visualise myself putting on my trainers and going out to run. Now running is part of my life again but sometimes I forget to be grateful for being able to run again. I forget to celebrate how far I have come in my recovery and I forget to appreciate something which once I only hoped for...⠀
⠀
What are you grateful for today?⠀

Lunch today was a delicious mix of leftovers. I had 2 bean chilli mixed with some leftover precooked quinoa and a courgette which I spiralised into courgetti and steamed with the chilli and quinoa so it was all cooked in one pan! I topped it off with some nutritional yeast because it’s one of my new favourite ingredients. Perfect Friday fuel.⠀

Don't worry I'm not reaching for the wine already! I just have no clean glasses in the house and can't be arsed to do the washing up right now. So I'm having my daily water intake from a wine glass beacuse...well why not!⠀
⠀
I aim to drink 1.5L of filtered water a day + 2-4 herbal teas which also count towards your water intake which should be 1.5-2L depending how active you are.⠀
⠀
To help me keep track of how much I'm drinking I fill a 1L glass water bottle at the beginning of the day and aim to drink 1-2 over the course of the day. ⠀
⠀
Does anyone else find drinking water from a wine glass makes it feel that little bit more exciting even thought it's still just water - no? Just me?! 😆⠀
