Tahini Energy Bites

 

Tahini is a magical ingredient that I happen to be ever so slightly obsessed with. Made from sesame seeds, this wonderful paste is primarily used in savoury dishes, for example hummus, but can also be used in sweet dishes too as it has quite nutty in flavour, not unlike peanut butter.

Wonderful Wednesday #15

Happy Wonderful Wednesday! Yesss…. that is me kissing a Giraffe. She was called Lynn and it took me approximately 542 takes before we managed to get the perfect shot, which is a hella lot of giraffe kissing. This photo is from my month in Kenya, my first solo trip, that I flew to 4 years ago today! I can’t quite believe where the time has gone and the magical thing about January is that it not only gives you time to look forward and plan for the year ahead, but it also gives you the time to breathe, relax and reflect on everything you’ve accomplished.

Peanut Butter Granola Bars (Vegan)

After leaving home for the first time to go to university, I, like many people who have to learn how to feed themselves on their own, struggled. I’d always cooked my own meals, I wasn’t completely incompetent, but in the first few weeks of university, just like a right of passage for many students, I bought so.much.junk.

2017 || My Hopes for the Next 12 Months

2017 is going to be that coming of age year, yano, the one that most American teen movies are based on. It both excites me and terrifies me in equal measure, because in the last six months of the year I will be stepping into unknown territory, where I can’t picture, nor predict what my life will look like.

Sunday Round Up #11

With what started as a week filled with a motivational buzz for what is in store for the next 12 months, it has ended up filled with essay writing, and not a lot else. I suppose it is my fault for kidding myself into thinking I could start this assignment over the festive period, when in reality I only started it 5 days ago. With a due date tomorrow, Im looking forward to getting my life back to a normal schedule and foregoing these late night/early morning study sessions that have me procrastinating Sunday Round Up posts at 3am. (warning, this post *may* contain Greys Anatomy spoilers!)

Watching: Greys Anatomy, which the boyf is also now obsessed with after watching just one episode. Said boyf got mad after I continued to watch it while he was at work, even though I have been watching it for 8 bloody seasons. That boy just gon’ have to catch up as they ain’t no way I’m waiting for him to find out what happened after the plane crash! #spoileralert

Reading: The Man Who Couldn’t Stop: The Truth About OCD, David Adam. A book recommended by my best friend, who suffers from anxiety. While I don’t suffer from a mental illness such as OCD, in the past I have undergone CBT for OCD-type symptoms and this is a book for anyone who wants to learn more about their illness or understand anyone they know that may suffer from OCD. Part memoir, part scienc-y/stats-y, the goal of the author is to make sure those who suffer with a mental illness, know that they aren’t alone.
