WELLNESS & WANDERLUST WEDNESDAY with featured holistic nutritionist & intrepid traveller, Lana Jankovic

JUST GO! If holistic nutritionist and passionate life-lover, Lana Jankovic, doesn’t inspire you to want to step away from your computer, venture out into the wilderness and embrace whatever comes your way, I am not sure who will. An intrepid explorer, wordsmith and natural by example-style inspirer, it feels pointless to try to sum up in […]

A SIMPLE RICE & GREEN LENTIL DISH (with caramelised red onions and toasted pine nuts)

Hi all! I wasn’t going to post this recipe, but received a lovely response when I posted it on Instagram today.

PRE-CHRISTMAS SHAPE-UP

Traditional Christmas celebrations in Northern Europe, aside from being charming and cosy, are a decidedly stodgy affair. The weather calls for it.
