Make at Home Food: The Best Waffles Ever!

2015_Biteable_Beauty_Best_Waffles_Ever_make_at_home_food

We got a waffle iron for Christmas, and so have been rather regularly indulging ourselves in waffles for a weekend treat. Making your own doughy/batter-y breakfast is so much healthier than buying shop-bought waffles, muffins and pastries because 1) you know the quality of the ingredients you are putting in your product (organic eggs for instance over battery hen) 2) there are no artificial preservatives …

Friday 6th February 10:15 Classic Class: Yoga Challenge Day 29 My penultimate day of the 30 day hot yoga challenge! Revisiting my other postures I commented on earlier in the blog series – Pranayama – Standing Deep Breathing – my arms were more supple in a week, well in 4 weeks they are like new beasts! It’s funny, I didn’t really notice loss of mobility on a …

Thursday 5th February 10:15 Classic Class- Yoga Challenge Day 28 SO almost finished now, I am looking forward to completion of the yoga challenge.

Wednesday 4th February 5pm Classic Class Yoga Challenge Day 27 I’m going to share another mini mantra today – “wait for the state to dissipate.” This is a phrase regularly used by yogi instructor San Patel, and I carry it with me through all my practice. I think about stretching my muscles to the max whilst in my postures, then pausing till the tightness subsides …

Christmas at Kew – Kew Gardens 2014

2015_Biteable_Beauty_Christmas_at_Kew_Gardens_Tunnel_of_Lights

It seems fitting that on the day after we (finally!) took our Christmas tree down I share this post about our trip to Christmas at Kew Gardens, if only so I can feel the Christmas magic for just a day longer! I just love this time of the year- perfect for a warm bubble bath, too many christmas biscuits and gift-giving. I love how glittery, …

Monday 2nd February 5pm Fierce Grace Class Yoga Challenge Day 25 I am now well and truly on the home straight of my Fierce Grace 30 Day Yoga Challenge, and I can’t see anything stopping me! One thing I have noticed is my appetite has considerably decreased. My appetite is always noticeably increased during the cold winter months; in the summer months I eat much less …

Make at Home Food & Drink – Chai Tea

2015_biteable_beauty_chai_tea

We recently had some friends over for dinner, and one of them very kindly gifted us some Masala Chai Tea from Tea2You in Borough Market. I can see from their website that their blend consists of black tea, cardamom, cinnamon and cloves, and this is somewhat similar to the recipe I make at home. Which as I think it’s so delicious I thought I would …
