The Infamous Cinnamon Rolls (vegan+gluten-free)

I posted these cinnamon rolls a while ago on my insta stories and it was highly requested ever since from me to post the recipe. I used to always love my grandma’s cinnamon rolls but after being diagnosed with gluten as well as lactose intolerance I could not eat them anymore without feeling super sick and bloated afterwards. The downfall of a gluten and lactose intolerance is that the more you shy away from wheat and dairy the more intolerant you become.

15 Essentials to Create a Daily Wellness Routine

My daily wellness routine is what helps me show up as my best self. In fact, whenever I feel like I’m falling off the wagon I try to anchor back into these healthy habits (list below). Wellness for me doesn’t have to be something big, like a SPA weekend. Sure, that’s nice, too, but  for me wellness starts with the little things I can incorporate on daily basis. Moreover I believe this routine is ultimately what is keeping me sane in this fast-paced world we’re living in.

15 Journal Prompts to process negative emotions asap

If you follow me on instagram I probably already know that I’ve had a rough couple of weeks. Usually I’ll always put a smile on my face and then the negative emotions eventually fade.

But I’m also already seeing the benefits.

Looooove me some oat milk coffee. I sometimes even think about it before I go to bed. It honestly sometimes makes me look forward to waking up early in the am, ceasing the day.

However, do we really need to quit all together or is there another way, as in becoming friends with coffee again? I think so! Learn all about my healing relationship with coffee below 💤

7 easy Steps to detox after quitting the Pill

About 4 weeks ago I posted that I stopped taking synthetic hormones because of the severe side-effects that came along with them. Now I might have to note that I didn’t take synthetic hormones for contraceptive measures but because I have a disease, called endometriosis. If you are new here might as well want to check out previous posts on that topic, like ‘my personal endo story’.

A Note to Feminism

For a couple of weeks I have asked a bunch of people what feminism really means to them. Big words like, opportunity, empowerment, embracing womanhood and sexual freedom came up. However there were also people who said that feminism means that women have to work more and take the first step in the dating world. According to Google dictionary feminism means, “the advocacy of women's rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes“. For me feminism means 2 things, it means having a voice and a choice!

METHOD: Put all the crust ingredients in the blender and mix it all up, you are supposed to end up with some sort of dough. Put it in a baking pan. From here you can go ahead and bake this dough for 10 minutes in a preheated oven or you can just leave it raw. Clean your blender and then put the ingredients for the topping in. You should end up with a cheesecake-looking texture. Pour the topping on top of the crust and put the whole thing in the freezer for a day. Put it out at least 2 hours before you intend to eat this half frozen yumminess of a cheesecake.

No More to Synthetic Hormones

About a week ago, I finally said NO MORE! No more synthetic hormones in my body. I started sharing about my current hormonal issues a couple week ago on IG stories I think. I know that it might sometimes be hard to grasp for other people so questions like,“but I thought you said you were fine?“ will always come because it gets tiring to talk about diseases all the time so not talking about it sometimes for me feels like escaping into another and better world.

A Love Letter to my Body

Dear body, I am sorry I was treating you poorly for years, not acknowledging all the miraculous things you do for me for every breath I take. I am sorry I considered you my worst enemy for years, restricting you food and essential nutrients, putting toxins on and inside you while pretty much starving you out, punishing you for being amazing?! - I know you must be mad but I promise I will make it up to you. I appreciate you and am grateful for you at last. Albert Einstein once said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle.
