If you’re anything like me you’re probably working a lot, juggling 5 million projects, activities, commitments, along with helping others. You’re single-handedly saving the world operating on drive and passion as your fuel. So, when do you find time for yourself?

 

 

 

“Don’t watch the clock;

Do what it does

KEEP GOING”

Sam Levenson

When you allow yourself only a few hours of subpar sleep at night, then even your rest is not your own. Many of us toss and turn, our minds occupied and racing in thought, configuring to-do lists in our heads, I forgot to reply to that email, I need to pick up my dry cleaning, etc. Or your body may finally shut down and you fall sick with a cold, and if that doesn’t stop you in your tracks — the dreaded flu. Busy modern living can really take its toll if you allow it. But here’s the good news: You are in total control of your actions, and you can design your day with style, literally style your life, honouring yourself first. You can, and deserve to, look and feel your very best.

Taking care of yourself sounds like a simple task; it’s a constant mantra for me and the clients I serve at Food Body Life.  Styling your life is all about taking accountability for what exists in your orbit and implementing practices that reinforce the intention of loving yourself and living out your goals. Don’t let the daily grind dim your glow. Work to ignite your inner light as a daily practice.

Ingredients:

1kg broccoli (2 heads), cut into florets

120ml extra virgin olive oil

80g salted capers, rinsed and drained

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 long red chilli, thinly sliced

500g cooked chickpeas, (2 tins, drained and rinsed)

1 cup baby spinach

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

Method:

  1. Place the broccoli florets in a perforated steam tray and steam at 100°C for 1 minute.
  2. Pre-heat a griddle pan on high heat, Induction setting 8, until the pan is smoking hot.
  3. Remove the broccoli from the steam oven, quickly toss in half of the olive oil and place on the griddle pan, in batches, until you have nice char marks on the broccoli. Keep aside in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Add the remaining oil into a small saucepan, with the capers, garlic and chilli. Cook on medium heat, Induction setting 5, until the garlic starts to just turn slightly golden.
