South African Mylk Tart

South Africa Mylk TartLately I’ve been feeling rather nostalgic. I’ve been reminiscing old memories and missing my family, friends and home country. It’s now been roughly 17 months since I opened my wings, flew out of Durban South Africa, and nestled into a new life with my love in this beautiful country, New Zealand. I have loved every single step of my journey and am incredibly grateful each and every day. Yet I do think of my ‘people’ back home ALL the time and miss them all so dearly! 

So to cheer my spirits I decided to get back to my roots, and create a healthy vegan version of a great South African traditional dessert. It’s wonderful how food is able to have an influence on our feelings, frame of mind and moods. And when it’s a healthy guilt free dessert, it’s even better.

Needless to say my weekend was full of nostalgic memories and mouthfuls of my Vegan Gluten & Sugar Free South African Mylk Tart! Continue reading

Adding some self love in the form of good nutrition, like with these Apple Pecan Spelt Pastry Pies, can not only make our bodies happy, they also make us feel good.
 
Many of us tend to forget that we ourselves deserve endless amounts of self-love, to feel connected, to be grateful and to feel happy and alive.

And when you’re feeling down or sad, it’s amazing how quickly a little self love and correct thinking can change your whole attitude and mood.
