MOON DELI X MEDITATION LATTE

 

I am someone thats constantly on the go, in fact I usually exhaust myself, and thats when the nap/sleep comes in. It’s all in my nature, to be in constant thought and creation. However balance in necessary to recharge and replenish yourself. Be it through detaching/unplugging to take some time out of the day to read a book, journal, or any activity that helps you to unwind. Personally I like accompanying my downtime with something to imbibe, preferably handmade.

The solution? Scooping some adaptogens in my mug. Moon Deli Meditation Tonic has been a newfound go-to when I want to step into a calmer atmosphere.

OVERNIGHT PUMPKIN PIE OATS | V + GF

Its that time: September skies and the dip of the weather. October and its orange and warm tones start creeping in. When you live in LA and it really gets going in the midst of October.  But always comes down to “pumpkin spice everything” when Fall hits. There’s something about the warm, toasty flavors that evoke fall, the change of seasons, the whisper of magic in the air…or is that just me?

I remember back when bookstores where the place to get lost in. There was something extraordinary about getting wrapped up in cozy knitwear and heading to the bookstore for a warm cup of coffee and looking for a good read. It was an autumnal rite of camaraderie or time to yourself. It was a warm cup of pumpkin spices wafting its spell.

In fact I still feel this way and it has affected in the way I choose to spend my Autumnal days (pumpkin patch anyone?) I think it’s beautiful to live amidst the seasons and bring in it’s abundance of flavors. Enjoy!!

BLISS ALCHEMY ELIXIR FEAT. SUN POTION

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.

Buckwheat Waffles with Raw Probiotic Caramel | v + gf

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!
