Lost Love

Fire runs through my body with the pain of loving you

Pain runs through my body with the fires of my love for you

Pain like a boil about to burst with my love for you

Consumed by fire with my love for you

I remember what you said to me

I am thinking of your love for me

I am torn by your love for me

Pain and more pain

Where are you going with my love?

I’m told you will go from here

I’m told you will leave me here

My body is numb with grief

Remember what I said my love

Goodbye my love, goodbye.

1986, written by an anonymous Kwakuitl Indian of Southern Alaska



Super Green’n’Thick Smoothie

Today I made a wonderful discovery. How to thicken smoothies - guilt free. I always used either avocado or a little more protein powder which would just up the calorie intake. And I love love love thick smoothies so I was doing it more than often.

Then today, I added a little more frozen spinach than I usually do and voila! …thick smoothie. The spinach needs to be frozen, as the coldness of the ingredients makes the smoothie thicker.

When I say frozen spinach I don’t mean the conventional spinach that you get in the supermarket frozen section. I’m talking about baby spinach salad leaves that you freeze yourself. They come either loose or already packaged in small, serving size packages »>


// Super Green’n’Thick Smoothie //

(2 servings)

- 1/2 cup Provamel Coconut Rice Milk

- 1/2 cup Alpro Unsweetend Almond Milk

- 1 cup mineral water

- 1 small banana, frozen

- 1 handful frozen blueberries

- 1 scoop Sunwarrior Warrior Blend Vanilla

- 1 scoop Amazing Grass Super Green Food powder, or any other super green powder combination

- 1 teaspoon of each: maca powder, wheatgrass powder, spirulina, cinnamon, flaxseed

- 3 activated organic, raw brazil nuts

- 6 activated organic, raw almonds

- packet of frozen spinach

Add liquids to blender first, to ensure that clumps do not form at the bottom  of the blades. Add frozen fruit, then blend till smooth. Add powders and nuts. Blend smooth again. Then add spinach in handfuls, quantity depending on how thick you want you smoothie.

Of course if your kitchen is graced with the presence of the almighty Vitamix, just chuck everything in at once and watch that industrial power go to work.

History Meme →  [1/10] Moments; The misogyny speech

The misogyny speech was delivered by the then Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard on the 9th of October 2012 in reaction to sexism from opposition leader Tony Abbott. Tony Abbott had risen in parliament with a motion to have Peter Slipper removed as speaker over sexist comments he was alleged to have made. Julia Gillard refused to back the move and proceeded to link Abbott’s remarks to those made in the recent Alan Jones shame controversy. Gillard said that “everyday in every way” Abbott was sexist and misogynist.  [x]



The Honest Shake

Everyone’s into core strengthening and muscle toning these days. That calls for an infinite amount of home-made protein shakes shimmied on Instagram, hashtag postworkout fitness.

Despite the bloom of self-proclaimed Jillian Michaels out there ( the trainer from Biggest Loser … I had to Google that ), posting their shakes as the new revolutionary fat blaster … you’ll find many of them are still hiding sugars and not prepping their ingredients to get the maximum out of them. Like activating nuts, chia seeds and using fresh coconut water. Anyone using the boxed stuff should be an immediate delete from your following.

Here’s an easy protein shake that’s easily digested, low in natural sugars and no ridiculous fats added. We assume that most, preferably all ingredients you will use are organic.

// The Honest Shake //

- small handful (think palm of hand) of activated almonds ( activate by placing in a bowl of mineral water in the fridge, submerged for 6 hours or overnight) / fibre, protein, antioxidants

- small handful of activated walnuts ( same process as above ) / amino acids

- 1/2 frozen banana / complex carbs, fibre, potassium

- handful frozen blueberries / reduces inflammation, vitamin C, antioxidants

- 1 scoop Sunwarrior Raw Protein blend Vanilla flavour / the vegan protein hit - no rice protein in this blend

- 1 teaspoon maca powder / helps nourish adrenal glands, may reduce muscle soreness, improves stamina - we used Organic Burst , our little present from The SCB class many lunges ago

- 1 teaspoon flaxseed / omega 3 fats

- 1 teaspoon cinnamon / improves digestion, relieves muscle soreness

- 1 teaspoon matcha powder / boosts metabolism, helps burn fat (yes, yes it does!), antioxidants, detoxifies

- 1 scoop super greens / detoxes, stablises energy levels, alkalines body

- 1/2 cup coconut rice milk / best milk alternative

- 1/2 cup mineral water / H20 is the way to go!

Place liquids first then add banana, blueberries and remaining ingredients. Blend on highest speed till you get a smooth liquid. If it’s too thick for you, add a little more water or milk and whizz.

This is enough for two small glasses or one big serving. Enjoy!
