New Year Resolutions–have you made any?

In previous years, I haven’t really set any as I like to continually set little goals and intentions for myself, not just in January. But I think it’s an opportunity to reflect, review and refocus.

I absolutely believe in the power of intention and manifesting your own reality, so for a change I have been very clear and written them down with timings–these range from very realistic to extremely challenging. But you’ve got to aim high, right?

And I’m joining a gym! It’s the first time in years as I love running outside and have lots of workouts at home but I but I thought it would be fun and we all need a bit of extra motivation sometimes?

And how about food resolutions or New Year’s eating plans? I’m doing some simple things; eating a little less, upping my veg intake, no processed food, just real wholefoods as usual, focusing on training more (i.e. Joining the gym) and cutting back on the glasses of wine. I know I’ll be feeling great again in no time at all.

And my first recipe for 2018–Ice Cream! And this recipe is so simple I wasn’t sure if I warranted a separate blog post., but as it tastes so amazing, I decided it did. And simple is pretty good, right?

My Pistachio and matcha ice cream combine some of my favourite flavours. I’m mad for most pistachio desserts, kulfi, baklava.. mmm. And matcha anything and I’m in. So together, I’m a thrilled lady.

My ice cream is just a delicious blend of ripe frozen bananas, creamy coconut yogurt (or coconut cream for an even creamier result), lots of lovely pistachios, vibrant matcha and a splash of maple syrup.

Delicious.
