Next level cocoa. Creamy, frothy, and in this case iced (because it’s still warm outside) yet filled with luscious flavor crafted in small batches using organic and wild crafted goods. Here I used Sun Potion’s Anandamide (also known as Bliss Alchemy) as the dreamy + herbal version of the hot cocoa. Perhaps like many others, I put value in what I choose to imbibe and perhaps it’s the HSP in me, I get more joy selecting products when you feel like you “know” where your edibles are coming from. This is why I personally love Sun Potion because of the founders’ genuine love + passion to create products that are sustainable & Sun Potion thrives for educating us on the plant science, not just the concept of a product.
After a long work week sometimes you need a bit of downtime to yourself. I repeat: take time to do your own thing. Never feel like you can’t dedicate some time to unwind, especially on the warm sunny summer days. Because ideally, I would be taking a languid stroll through the lake but you know, I can dream. While August is wining down (but those darn templates still rising!) I wanted to take it easy. Like maybe embrace the summer day. You know?
So onto this easy dusk-time meal. Pizza is one of my favorite things in life, you can top it with whatever is local, whatever is a bulk find, and its quite easy of a recipe because the weekends are(should be) for chilling (and getting down to relaxing). I added a plant based + vegan ricotta cheese but feel free to change it up! I ended up making this roasted summer veggie pizza to split with my mum + some galaxy (flower) iced lemonade that is a radially beautiful, albeit not traditional lemonade color!
You guys, homemade waffles are so easy to make! Earlier this year my beau bought a mini set of cookware, which had a waffle maker! I have wanted a waffle maker for quite a while but never it never seemed to happen, however I do have this mini one now and I happen like its size, its a bit smaller than your typical waffle but I prefer them! Its even portable for travel or if you live in a smaller space.
Waffles in the morning are my jam because, when made with a nutritious flour like the one I used here, they are particularly filling – the buckwheat flour is a boost of nutrition and the remaining 5 ingredients are plant based. I kept mine basic vanilla but you can certainly add your favorite spices + natural flavors like cinnamon, chocolate chips, bluebs, etc!
Why am I calling these overnight oats Flower-Child? Because they contain a combination of flowers that make this a lightly sweet overnight oatmeal with bursting with fruit-based prebiotics & probiotics! I am a huge fan of overnight oats because they are quick & easy to assemble + are excellent for whatever your mood is into that day when it comes to flavor + toppings.
Lets talk probiotics. Probiotics are living microorganisms/bacteria. Prebiotics are non digestible carbohydrates that are food for probiotics. We carry around 100 trillion microbial cells in our body. Probiotics are noted for aiding digestive health + supporting the immune system because of its friendly, beneficial bacteria (some more on that here)
