Yesterday was Take Your Dog to Work Day! I was incredibly lucky to have Basil in the office with me. He loved it and was surprisingly really well behaved 💕🐕
.
Research shows having your dog at work can have physical and mental health benefits and I would have to agree. It made me take regular breaks to get fresh air (which I have been really bad at lately) and it's also a good conversation starter in the lift 😅
.
I have this dream of having my own business and taking Basil to work with me everyday ❤️
.
Did anyone else take their dog to work yesterday?

AIP Slow cooked beef, broccolini and cauliflower mash with a sprinkle of fresh parsley 🤗
.
I added a tiny bit of coconut milk to my cauliflower mash to make it creamy but it went a tiny bit runny 😭

Afternoon walk with Basil and by walk I mean he doesn’t actually want to walk so I am carrying him 🤦🏼‍♀️ luckily he is only 3 kilos! 😅🐕🌿
.
I’m taking it easy on my walk because I have been getting a lot of pain lately – I can’t quite work out if it’s muscle or joint pain (or both). Over the last year I have been working with my endocrinologist to figure out why I still have brain fog, fatigue and pain even after treatment for my thyroid disease. In my last appointment a few weeks ago he told me it’s likely these symptoms are due to having another autoimmune disease as well as Hashimoto’s.
.
The next step is an appointment with a Rheumatologist in a few weeks. It feels like I have done a full circle because it was actually a Rheumatologist who discovered my Hashimoto’s disease. The hardest thing is most autoimmune diseases are ‘invisible’ and can take an incredibly long time to diagnose.
.
I am lucky to be surrounded by people who support me even if they don’t understand what I’m going through. I know some people don’t have the same support network I have and it can be very hard to deal with. Whether you have a diagnosis or are still trying to figure it out, just know that you are not alone in this journey 💕✨

Snacking on tiger nuts! 🐯🥜
.
If you haven’t tried them they have a sweet/nutty taste and are slightly chewy.
.
I’m curious to know what others do with tiger nuts – do you eat them as they are or do you have a delicious recipe you make with them?

Basil is super excited to be learning more about thyroid healing 🐕💕
.
I am also excited to be reading this book, it's been on my list for a while and I finally bought it.
.
I get so many questions about thyroid healing and I love it when people connect with me. It's so nice to know you aren't alone in this journey although it breaks my heart to hear people are going through the same struggles as me. I wish I could help you all but I am still working out my own balance of healthy eating, exercise and reducing stress.
.
I'm going to read this book and let you know my thoughts 🤗 It may take me a while because I'm the worlds slowest reader 😅 and I may even jump on the celery juice trend 😝
.
Has anyone else read this?

New Recipe! Sweet potato and ginger soup 🙌🏼🍠
.
I know most of you are heading into summer but it’s so cold where I live at the moment and I am eating all the soup! I saw sweet potato and ginger soup at a local café and it inspired me to make it myself. I have worked out that this recipe is best with a lot of ginger so don’t be scared to add the full amount! Recipe below:
.
Ingredients:
4 cups water
4 cups sweet potato, peeled and diced
¼ cup fresh ginger, peeled and finely cut or minced
1 tablespoon coconut sugar
½ teaspoon salt
.
1. Add water to a large saucepan and bring to the boil.
2. Add sweet potato, ginger, sugar and salt.
3. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes ensure the sweet potato is cooked.
4. Remove soup from heat and blend until smooth.
5. Return soup mix to saucepan over medium heat until thoroughly heated.

New recipe and a mid-week food stock up! .
I grabbed some chicken, ginger and garlic to make teriyaki chicken and a few extra ingredients for sides.
.
The inspiration for this teriyaki chicken came from my honey and garlic chicken, I wanted to make a different version of it because I love it so much but probably shouldn’t make it every week haha! Recipe below:
.
Ingredients:
2 chicken breasts
1/3 cup coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons honey
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons ginger, minced
2 teaspoons arrowroot flour (or cornflour)
.
1. In the slow cooker, place the chicken, coconut aminos, apple cider vinegar, honey, garlic and ginger.
2. Cook on high for 45 minutes – I made sure I turned the chicken over a few times.
3. Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the slow cooker. Place the chicken on a chopping board, using 2 forks shred the chicken.
4. Add the arrowroot flour (or cornflour) to the sauce left in the slow cooker. Wisk well so there is no lumps and the sauce thickens.
5. Add the shredded chicken back to the slow cooker and leave for 20 minutes.

New Recipe! Thai chicken meatballs with sweet potato glass noodles 🤗
.
I mentioned in my last post I bought lime leaves this week to try something new. There were so many great suggestions and since I have a whole packet to use up I will have to make some more recipes using lime leaves this week! 🍃
.
These Thai chicken meatballs served on sweet potato glass noodles (dang myun noodles) are so fresh and tasty! It looks like there is a tone of ingredients in this recipe but it makes quite a few servings – I made 14 meatballs in total. Recipe below:
.
Ingredients:
500g chicken mince
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 clove of garlic, crushed
3 kaffir lime leaves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh coriander, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
¼ cup coconut aminos
1 teaspoon coconut sugar
1 tablespoon of your choice of cooking oil
1 packet sweet potato glass noodles (you can usually find these at an Asian grocer)
1 carrot, finely sliced
1 cucumber, finely sliced
2 spring onions, finely sliced
.
1. In a bowl, combine the mince, garlic, ginger, lime leaves, coriander and mint.
2. Using your hands, roll a tablespoon of mixture into a ball. Continue until you have used all the mixture.
3. Place the meatballs in the fridge for 40 minutes – chicken mince can be hard to work with so this helps them stay together when you cook the meatballs.
4. In a frypan on medium heat, add your cooking oil and meatballs cook until light golden. You may have to do this in a few batches depending on the size of your pan, don’t try and over crowd it, leave enough space between each meatball.
5. Cook the sweet potato noodles as per the packet instructions.
6. To made the dressing combine the lime juice, coconut aminos and coconut sugar.
7. Serve by placing the noodles at the bottom of the bowl, followed by the carrot, cucumber and meatballs. Top with spring onion and fresh coriander and a tablespoon of dressing.

#trynewthings Tuesday! 🤗
.
I am trying to use new ingredients I haven’t used before, I tend to get into the habit of buying the same ingredients each week and it can get a little repetitive.
.
I decided to buy fresh lime leaves, I always see them in the herb section when I buy my mountain of fresh herbs so I thought I would grab a bunch this week so I can make a new recipe 🍃
.
What new ingredients are on your shopping list?

I'm on the hunt for natural beauty products! 💆🏼 On Saturday I bought a fresh face mask from lush cosmetics and it made my skin feel so refreshed. It made me think about all the other products I use and the effects the ingredients have on my body.
I love buying beauty products but it's so easy to ignore all the nasty ingredients they have in them. My skin and hair have been pretty dull lately so I'd like to revamp my routine. I'm keen to hear about the brands you love to use! Comment or tag your favorite natural skin, hair and make up brands below so I can check them out 🤗
