A cold day in Perth today. We are looking forward to those Chestnuts.

Chestnuts are warm, sweet and slightly astringent. They are nourishing for the body, boost the immune system (increase Ojas) strengthens the Asthi dhatu (bone tissue), and beneficial for cardiovascular health.

They are perfect on a cold day.

Turn on the oven 🔥

Method
1. Heat the oven to 200C
2. Using a small, sharp knife, cut a cross into the skin of each nut. 🌰
Put the chestnut in a roasting tin and bake until the skins open and the insides are tender, about 30 minutes.
3. Enjoy 😊 , drizzle some ghee over them #delicious

What did you have for breakfast today? Have you tried steel cut oats.

Porridge is always a great breakfast especially during the autumn and winter season.
These oats are closest to their original grain form. They are made when the whole groat (whole unbroken grain) is cut into several pieces with a steel blade (it looks similar to rice that’s been cut into pieces).

Golden Milk

While in India I have been having Golden Milk each night before going to bed. Usually I wake up multiple times throughout the night but as I continue to drink the milk I’m sleeping deeper and waking up more refreshed. The milk comes from the Ashram I am staying, at the Goshala cowshed where they protect and nurture cows. Cows are considered sacred and they’re never sold or abandoned, given space to roam, and the milk tastes heavenly!
