Inner Witch

Inner Witch

I believe we all have an inner witch. Something inside us that knows we are capable of creating magic, of connecting to something bigger than us, of alchemising, of sisterhood. 

The difficulty is my ego can have (not always) a problem with it. It’s so far away from the part of me I would have owned in the corporate world. The part of me that’s always been conditioned to value logic, reason, evidence, hard work over the intuition, the magic, the connectedness, the act of surrendering

Book Quotes to Inspire You

Book Quotes to Inspire You

February 13, 2020 4 Comments

I thought I’d change it up for this post and write about something non-food, but equally feel-good, and as it’s my final semester as an English student, reading seems the perfect topic (and one I inevitably can’t escape!). I am a big believer in the soothing power of a cup of coffee and a good book; get your fluffy socks on, your mug filled, and a couple of lines from a book you love can provide that needed shot of inspiration. I keep a journal of quotes I’ve read that have really stuck with me, and after flicking through, I’ve come up with my 4 favourites:

Finding that festive balance

Finding that festive balance

‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year…’

‘Tis the season! With Christmas parties, yummy food and the occasional mulled wine, bring on the celebrations!

However, alongside all of the fun, December can be quite a stressful time. We wake up in darkness, finish work in darkness, have deadlines to meet and social events to attend. Not to mention all of the Christmas shopping…waaah! It’s easy to become overwhelmed.

Journey of an entrepreneur: Kate Mosley

Journey of an entrepreneur: Kate Mosley

December 06, 2019

It’s great to reflect. Reflection gives us the opportunity to look at where we’ve come from, where we’ve been, and understand why we are where we are now. Why we are the person we have become today, both for the good and the bad. On Monday 9th December The Garden will have been trading for 5 years. It’s our 5th birthday!!! Over the years I have been asked so many questions about our business and about my journey. As we approach this huge milestone I have taken some time out to reflect on my own life. In this post I consider the defining moments in my life that looking back, were actually the building blocks for good business acumen and the moments that I believe gave me the entrepreneurial qualities needed to run a business. So, what qualities do you need to be an entrepreneur?

It’s the perfect time for a Pumpkin!

November 01, 2019

It is well and truly pumpkin time. With Halloween approaching and ‘trick or treaters’ in full swing, pumpkins are in almost everyone’s shopping basket this month.
However, once the pumpkin carving settles, rather than binning those scary remains – think about what you’re missing out on…

Food for Thought

October 15, 2019

With winter looming, and world mental health day approaching this month, it seems as good a time as any to talk about our mood. Mood is probably the biggest reason I changed the way I eat, but strangely, the one I talk about the least. Learning more about the role of diet and mood has been a massive game-changer in how I manage my anxiety. The physical benefits of eating healthy are constantly discussed, but to me it seems like the connection of food and mood has often been ignored.

Plant-based: a student friendly diet

Plant-based: a student friendly diet

October 01, 2019

Like many students, I started university with no idea how to cook, anticipating three years of takeaways and toast. Two years later, and I love cooking and making new recipes; learning to cook plant-based meals has meant I spend way less money on food than I used to, enjoy cooking more, and feel healthier and happier because of it. In fact, cooking has become a huge part of my uni experience, and I would even go as far as to say that a plant-based diet is not only accessible to students, but an ideal diet for students. Now to try and prove it…

Spotlight on Sourdough

Bread gets a bad rep. Whether it is your morning toast or your lunchtime sarnie, we are often being told to avoid it. However, consider the rule of ‘everything in moderation’ and understand that bread can be a very nutritious (and delicious) part of a healthy balanced diet – especially the good quality stuff. And, the fact that our personal favourite comes with a list of health benefits is just an added bonus.

Sourdough.

5 Tips for Travelling Vegans

5 Tips for Travelling Vegans

September 01, 2019

Plant-based diets are evidently becoming more and more mainstream here in Great Britain, according to the Vegan Society, the number of vegans having quadrupled in the space of four years, and the UK launching more vegan products than any other nation last year. However, that isn’t to say the trend is travelling quite as far as we vegans are. When your almond mylk is far from your reach, and you’re faced with age-old meaty cuisines and language barriers, travelling as a vegan may seem quite a challenge – it’s easy to find yourself missing your home-comfort vegan food more than you ever did meat and cheese!
