So there is no doubt that summer is well and truly over here in Melbourne. Winter has arrived which means countless rainy days, AFL season, big coats, Cacao Coconut Lattes, soups, snow trips and open fires. It also means that you are probably more prone to catching a seasonal cold or flu! We have put together a list of foods to keep you healthy this winter!
Well, we’re definitely into 2017 and I’m still writing 2016. Most people’s resolution was to be healthy, or at least healthier than last year. And here starts my letter. A healthy day begins with a healthy morning, and I want to share my tips for starting your day on the right foot.
Before I start with my morning routine, I would like to tell you about my night routine. I need 7+ hours of sleep, 9 is great! So if I need to be up at 7am (why is it us Melbournians are not earlier rises like Sydney and further north?) I need to be asleep by 10pm. So instead of setting a morning alarm and waking with an almighty jolt. I set a “night alarm”, allowing me to wake refreshed and naturally… My alarm goes off at 9:30pm, this gives me 30 minutes to do my pre-bed routine, a post for another time.
So as you’re well aware Serotonin Eatery shuts it’s doors every Monday and Tuesday so our kitchen can prep all of our house-made items for the week! This gives us foodies a chance to get out and try all of the other vegan eats Melbourne has on offer (can I just mention how spoilt for choice we are here in Melbourne.. seriously!)… we thought we would compile a list of our favourites because we love you guys so much! Enjoy
So by now I think we have all well and truly caught on to the turmeric latte craze that has hit Melbourne, some of us even swapping out beloved chai’s for a Golden Latte at our favorite cafe… but what makes this ancient Ayurvedic drink so special? Thanks to turmeric’s high levels of curcumin (the pigment that gives it that bright yellow colour) it is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
We want to share our favorite turmeric latte recipe for you to make at home as well as some of the benefits that just ¼ of a teaspoon of turmeric a day can have on your health. Remember – pairing turmeric with black pepper significantly increases the amount of curcumin your body absorbs from the spice!
You’ve probably started seeing Raw Beet around a fair bit recently.. These guys are the plant based foodies delivering raw goodness out of their food truck, including their amazing raw vegan donuts! We sat down with the faces behind Raw Beet and talked about all things happiness, health and of course… FOOD.
40% of your happiness is influenced by intrinsic factors, these are things you have control over such as your relationships with others, your career, your hobbies, the activities you engage in and your overall outlook on life. You are more likely to reach your full potential in life if you are happy and positive, so let’s look at some easy ways to increase your everyday happiness and overall quality of life. These 5 things may seem so simple but trust me, they make a world of difference!
Its 2017, and thousands of us are choosing to live alcohol free. Why? Are we recovering alcoholics? Pregnant? Under the legal drinking age? No we are merely young adults who have decided to put our mental and physical health first. A shift is occurring throughout the global world as more and more young people look at what alcohol is actually doing to their health and fitness and choose to go against the social norm and have fun without harming their bodies. Crazy right?
As the silly season draws to close and we all begin to settle back into routine we ask you to take a look inside the heart of your home (the kitchen) as we give you a little insight into ours. We believe a healthy kitchen is key to a healthy diet as having all the ingredients on hand makes it faster and easier to cook up healthy, nourishing meals.
As the plant based diet has become increasingly popular over the past couple of year (for good reason), so have plant based milk alternatives. With many cafes around Melbourne offering soy and nut milks to go with your favourite espresso drop there has never been a better time to opt for a plant based milk in your next latte and leave the cow’s milk for the baby calves.
