Monday 26th September 2016

Hello everyone,

Well its been a good few months since my last post.

I don't really have an excuse in so much as to say that 'life' just got in the way, figuring out where life was guiding me and in which direction and whilst getting caught up in this 'Game called Life', I decided that 'Blogging' and holding myself accountable for what goes on in my life and what I can truly offer my readers, I decided to re-start my 2016 Food and Mood blog, so here goes....

However if you are on Facebook and Instagram, you will have seen I have been quite active in promoting my business as well as sharing with you some useful 'hints and tips' as well as some delicious healthy recipes for you to try at all was not lost over the past few months.

Over the past few months, since my absence from being here online and connecting with you all, I have been some what busy in trying to identify what I wanted to do with my life.  Although all is not that clear, with a foggy haze, I have ideas in mind and plans in progress of where I feel my future should be heading.  So keep tuned in as when these plans take off, exciting times are ahead!

Today is Monday and as is most common in todays society, it is a great day to start again and make a fresh start.

I woke early and after completing some household chores and catching up with some emails, I had breakfast.  Breakfast consisted of porridge surrounded with delicious fresh and in season Figs and Blueberries.  Figs are now in season and with it being one of my favourite fruits and of course having many health benefits of which one being helping to keep you 'regular' what's not to love!

After breakfast I got ready and headed out.  Although the weather was a little dull, and as soon as I stepped out, I was showered with a few droplets of rain, I ventured out, undeterred by what the weather could have in store.  I headed out towards the River as I felt I needed its calmness and sanctuary...(and the company of the ducks whom are plentiful)!

Returning from my walk, although I was dressed quite warm as the weather has taken a cold turn (14C when I headed out this morning) I felt a chill and throughout the day, nothing I did quite managed to warm me up (from shopping to cooking, to laundry & ironing, to sitting and catching up on calls and emails) until finally I put the heating on in my office and made a delicious cup of warming hot chocolate.

Recipe (Vegan, Gluten Free)
~ Serves 2
2 cups of soya milk (you can use almond, coconut or milk of your choice)
4 tsp raw cacao powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Sugar to taste (I used 2 tbsp of coconut sugar). 
Put all the ingredients in a pan and gently bring to the boil.

This delicious healthy alternative to hot chocolate and the heating finally kicked in and now I can say that I am feeling warm, flushed, turned heating down, taken my jacket off and hair up am able to focus on more important tasks to hand......down to Business!

There is lots going on in my world at the moment and sometimes, although it doesn't feel as though things are moving fast enough for me, they are moving in the right direction.  I will share more with you on this soon so keep tuned in.  So with this in mind, I bid you a good afternoon, until soon......
