My family and I absolutely enjoy canned Tuna. I have prepared it in many different ways over the years, tuna sandwiches, tuna salad, tuna pasta, and they were all hits. However, recently I felt the urge to create something different and I came up with what I like to call a “Tuna Stack”. Something similar to sushi stack but healthy and quick to whip up for a light lunch. Continue reading “Tuna Stack”
Ever since I can remember, I was always sick on my birthday. While most kids were opening presents and having cake, I would spend my morning with my pants down, getting an injection from the doctor. Then one day, on my 21st birthday it all stopped! I was not sick! Even in the days leading up to my birthday, no tummy pains, no fever, just normal.
My curse was lifted !!! LOL!!! Continue reading “FREE FALLING”
“The mind is like water. When it’s turbulent it’s difficult to see. When it’s calm, everything is clear”. Prasad Mahes
It’s the final post about caring for your self and in this one I’m talking about our minds. I feel our minds are the most powerful part of our bodies. With a strong mind, the most difficult of tasks are achieved, with a positive mind, the most paralysing diseases are fought. Our mind and body are connected and when they are working in harmony that makes for one content and happy human… Continue reading “Self-Care: Part Three”
It is said that we can’t control everything in life, but we can control what we put in our bodies.
Welcome to the second post in my 3 part series about self care and it is all about caring for our bodies internally. For many this is the most difficult part of life and I don’t blame them, there are so many deliciously tempting foods available, but it most certainly is not the best option. Consuming food that’s high in sugar, unhealthy and combined with no exercise will see your health being setback in so many ways. You have less energy, you are more susceptible to developing diseases and become depressed with your appearance. Continue reading “Self Care: Part Two”
Paneer: Indian cottage cheese
A well-known piece of cheese in my family, everyone loves it and we enjoy creating different meals with it. Today I like to share with you my favourite paneer recipe. I made the paneer at home, I find it quite easy to do, but if you don’t have the time, then you can buy it from the stores. This is a complete vegetarian meal and something I enjoyed making for our Purtassi fast which is almost over. I hope you will give it a try and tell me what you think of it. Continue reading “Paneer Chutney”
Lets admit it, we all at some point, have let our busy schedules take over and run the show, leaving little time to care for ourselves. I have done exactly that in these passed few weeks until I took a look in the mirror and got a real shock. I needed to get back to caring for my body, after all its the only place we have to live in. I know there are many of you out there doing the same, so I have put together a 3 part post that I will be releasing every Friday for the next 3 weeks, on how to care for yourself in an inexpensive and natural way.

Happy Heritage Day, my fellow South Africans! I hope you all are celebrating your heritage in your own special way and being proud of who you are and where you come from.
Today I thought, I’d share with you my heritage and why I am so proud of it!
That time of the year again, beautiful spring!
Everyone starts shedding those warm layers of clothing, work begins to get those bodies ready for summer and everywhere you look, flowers are a bloomin! So what does late sunsets and warmer days mean exactly? Well for me that means more exploring out in the sun with my camera around my neck. If you interesting in doing some exploring this spring, here is my list of places that I have explored.
