January is thankfully behind us and daylight hours feel a teensy bit longer, with February comes hope of that all important roadmap back to normality.
But what about YOUR “Personal Roadmap”, what’s that looking like?
Are you really looking after yourself and what self care tools do you access to enable you to feel the very best you can?
Looking after yourself has never been more important than right now, self care is simply about taking time to do something for YOU, something that nourishes you physically and mentally, it’s NOT about feeling self-indulgent, it’s about doing what’s necessary to ensure you don’t just FUNCTION but FLORISH.
How can we help you FLOURISH?
We all know exercise is one of the BEST tools to feeling great physically and mentally, but, if you've yet to get started, or like many have seen your great new intentions fall by the wayside or perhaps you're just in need of some guidance then read on.

Flipping marvellous // Pancake Day 16th Feb
Flax, banana and oats pancakes
A high fibre breakfast option that happens to be vegan too. Uses oats as flour.
- 1 banana
- 100g oats
- 2 tbsp ground flax
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 50g pecan nuts
- 180-200ml plant milk
- A dash of cinnamon and/or nutmeg
- fresh fruit
- coconut yoghurt
- a light drizzle of sweet freedom gingerbread sauce.
Blitz the oats, flax and pecans in a Nutribullet to a fine-ish flour consistency. In a separate bowl, mash a banana and then add in the oats, pecans and flax mixture, together with the baking powder. Gradually pour in the milk, stirring constantly, to make a thick batter. Heat a small amount of coconut oil in a frying pan and, when hot, spoon in small amounts of batter and flatten/shape them. When the bottom of the pancake is light brown (lift it and check), flip it over and do the same on the other side.
Uttapam are a very common savoury breakfast in South India and are mostly eaten with a chutney or sambar (lentils).
- 2 cups oats
- 2 tbsp gram flour
- 1/2 cup yoghurt
- salt to taste
- 1 green pepper finely chopped
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 1 medium tomato finely chopped
- 1-2 fine green chillies chopped
For the chutney -
- 1/2 cup yoghurt
- 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 bunch coriander leaves and stems
- 1 cup mint leaves
- 1 chilli
- 1 garlic clove
- 2 tsp sliced ginger
- Salt to taste
- 1/4 tsp palm sugar or honey or any sugar substitute
Blitz oats to a coarse powder and transfer to a bowl. Add the gram flour, yoghurt, salt and water to bring it to a slightly thick batter consistency (pancake style rather than crepes).
Heat pan with oil of choice, for each uttapam, spread a ladleful of the batter on your pan, sprinkle toppings. Once the bottom of the uttapam is golden flip, do the same on the other side. Blitz the chutney ingredients, adding as much water as required for desired consistency. Serve the uttapam with chutney.
