Finding myself – Why I took a break from blogging!

Hi Everyone! I hope you are all having a much needed weekend or if you’re at school, beginning to holidays.

As you may or may not have noticed I’ve been very absent from social media the last couple months, posting every now and then on Facebook or limiting uploads on Instagram. As much as I’d like to say it was because I was overseas laying on the islands of Bora Bora drinking a few non-alcoholic cocktails (oh what a dream) , I’d be lying. The truth is, I lost all (well most, anyway) motivation and inspiration to keep Body Of Nature* running, and struggled with my own expectations.

If you have lived or visited Melbourne, Australia you would know how the weather is (a big 4 seasonal ball of shitty and dress ups) and today is no different because currently, it is pouring down and my brand new (!!) socks are saturated and soggy! Ugh, God dahm it, I just put them on too!

But, if its possible to love ONE thing about bipolar weather, it’s the opportunity to always enjoy warm, creamy hot food – like a pot of all-year-round pumpkin soup, gluten-free carrot and walnut cake, to die for crispy sweet potato fries, or a stack of gluten-free blueberry pancakes.

This morning I managed to just escape the rain and cold to take a photo of Quin-pear Porridge, which I devoured in under a minute, so thank god the few I got turned out okay! This one is for my GLUTEN FREE and DAIRY FREE lovers….

Recipe Feature: Paleo Zucchini Fries

One thing I LOVE to do is support local and international foodies! And the best way to do that? a RECIPE FEATURE!

I think its a great way to get an insight into a variety of lifestyles of how they cook and create their food, but also getting the opportunity to see how one ingredient or staple item can be used in so many ways!

Every recipe I feature I would eat and create myself, and believe in 100%. Ill try my best to feature recipes throughout all lifestyles so everybody can enjoy them.

By all means, if you have a recipe or know somebody with a to-die-for recipe that you think fits my blogs criteria, please send me your recipe here (include “Recipe Submission” in the subject field) with the following details:

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • Picture (with no writing)
  • Bio – about yourself and/or blog
  • Any tips or tricks you may have used

Todays RECIPE FEATURE is a paleo favourite from one of my inspirations, Luke Hines.

Enjoy Kaelli, x
