To Calm the Nerves

Thursday, February 22, 2018

Ever since I stopped drinking coffee, I've been trying out different tea combinations to find a few that feel comforting and are a great hot beverage substitute to coffee. One that really tickles me lately is this calming chamomile latte. I usually have it around late afternoon when most of my daily to-dos are done, but my mind is still in that busy fog of overthinking every last detail. Know that feeling?

Well, if you're in the same boat as me, this latte is the perfect thing to calm that anxious mind of yours and let it relax.

Here is the recipe, if you fancy trying it too...

P.S: This.
P.P.S: That.

Snowy Tokyo

Japan doesn’t get heavy snow often - actually the last one was four years ago - but when it does, it looks magical! So, during the most recent snow fall, Yuichi Yokota bundled up and spent the day snapping photos of his hometown getting totally covered with the white dust. Ah, I'm so glad he did...

P.S: Shinto-style bride in Tokyo.
P.P.S: And this.

Egg Nests

Have you tried egg nests yet? I've been seeing those beautiful and healthy veggie-egg dishes all over my feed lately and I'm totally tempted to give them a go. It's all about using a spiralizer to create spaghetti out of sweet potatoes, zucchini, beets, carrots (you name it!), sticking an egg on it for extra nutrition and ta-dah! Here's a handy recipe if you want to try it too.

P.S: Fancy more delicious egg ideas?
P.P.S: Plus, all things food.
