Raspberry smoothie bowl with a few scoops of @ora.organic Vanilla Chai Plant-Based Protein Powder 😍 I pretty much try to only have smoothies now when I can get my hands on Ora's protein powder because it is so good! πŸ™ˆ And @ora.organic is kind enough to share in a #giveaway for a one month supply of their delicious Chai Vanilla Powder πŸ€— All you have to do to enter is 1) like the photo 2) tag your most health conscious friend and 3) follow myself @8thandlake and @ora.organic. And that's it! I'll message the winner in the next day or so! Enjoy guys ❀️

Avocado toast with spicy radish slices, pine nuts, pickled onions and a squeeze of lime juice πŸ€— I'm trying to improve on my in home gardening skills ( aka keep any plant alive for more than 2 months πŸ™ˆ) and was wondering if you guys have any websites that are helpful for this? Or know of any plants that do well indoors? I've heard the bird of paradise and fiddle leaf figs are pretty good choices 🌿🌴 But I really have noooo idea πŸ€— What plants have worked well for you? ❀️

Midday green smoothie snack πŸ€— This one is just a quick mix of spinach, apple, banana, almond milk and a scoop of nut butter 😊 I popped over my friend's house yesterday and we cooked up a feast! About 8 different things, so I'm feeling really, really full right about now πŸ™ˆ what are you favorite green smoothie ingredients? I have a feeling that that's what I'll be eating a lot of this weekend πŸ˜‚Happy Friday! ❀️

Coconut yogurt with a heavy swirl of stewed cinnamon/ginger pears and currants 😍 Do you guys remember back in high school those dial locks that every student had for their locker? Well I went out to buy one, for new years resolution workout purposes, and I do not remember them being so pricey, like $18 pricey?? πŸ€”And not just that, but the dials are really difficult to turn. I spent 15 minutes trying to turn it fully to the right and I still have to do that twice more - crazy!πŸ™‰ So anyways, I’m going to return it today because that seems like a waste of time πŸ˜‚. Sooo do you guys have any lock recommendations - dial, lock and key, type? I know it's super random, but I’d actually love to know. πŸ€“

I've been testing through a lot of recipes lately so my fridge is more or less a collection of random scraps of food πŸ˜‚ Buttttt I was able to make this super simple pasta with all the random leftovers! 😍 It's just a bunch of herbs, lemon and roasted tomatoes ❀️

I was talking to one of my friends and tonight she mentioned that she's making my shakshuka recipe. Sooo I'm going to copy her and make it tonight too! And for a few reasons...1) it's raining and I'm really working on my procrastination skills during my workout time and cooking seems to do the trick, 2) it takes all of 20 minutes, 3) pretty much no clean up since it's in one pan and 4) it's delicious, spicy and warming...which is ideal for my current state as I'm layered under 2 blankets, with a beanie on top my head and a cup of tea in my hands, so anything warm is my M.O. tonight 😎 Oh, and does anyone watch The Fall??! OMGGG πŸ™‰ ps: the recipe for this leek and veggie shakshuka is in my IG Bio πŸ€—

A warm pasta with fresh greens on this very, very cold and rainy day πŸ™‰ And I just checked the weather app and it looks like it's rain all day everyday for the next week. Soo I guess I'll be spending lots of time indoors...most likely cooking πŸ€“ Let me know if you guys have any recipe ideas you'd like for me to make and share with you πŸ€— Happy weekend ❀️

I've been up since 7am testing recipes for a huge project ( one that I can't wait to tell you guys! 😍 ) So I'm definitely taking a coffee break right about now πŸ˜‚ πŸ™ŒπŸ» I stared experimenting with coffee a few years ago and after reading about the pour-over method and the clean flavor it produces, I started to pick up pieces here and there to build a mini coffee shop in my house 😊 Here's a little pic of my setup - a wood pour-over stand (which was actually a sweet Christmas gift from my dad) and a lovely copper kettle by @hario_japan 😍 How do you guys take your coffee?

Tucking into a coconut milk porridge with coconut yogurt and coconut shreds hidden underneath! Maybe I went a little overboard on the coconut this morning...πŸ€” πŸ˜‚ I finished The Crown last night and, wow, have you guys watched the show?? I wasn't expecting it to be that good! But it's fantastic and now I have a new found admiration for the Queen and the monarchy...assuming everything the show presented is true 😜 Anyways, it's great and would totally recommend it to anyone who's New Years resolution is to watch more Netflix πŸ˜‰πŸ™Š
