lau

This week’s gorgeous guest is the lovely Lauryce Moore from asoulfulpath.com. Lauryce is also studying to become a health coach and is lucky enough to be doing it in beautiful Spain. I am constantly salivating over Lauryce’s delicious recipes so make sure you check out her blog and read more of Lauryce’s story below.

So tell us a little bit about yourself, who you are, what you’re passionate about.

I am a 26 year old baby of the 80s, born into the month of August, making me a Leo sign!

I am very proud to be able to call New Zealand home. I am a trained primary school teacher and have taught for the past 4 years. I absolutely love children and enjoy teaching more than words can explain. This reflects my passion which is to help people learn new things whether it be about food, how to cook or live their life like they mean it. I have recently started my online website asoulfulpath.com where I share my love for food, health, beauty and more. I am addicted to chocolate and am usually busy making some ‘chocolatey’ goodness every day! My favourite colour is turquoise which coincides with my love for the ocean. I have a love for fashion and most people would describe my style as the boho hippy.

I love this recipe as it has two of my favourite ingredients: kale and turmeric. I am going to do a post later this week on the benefits of these amazing super foods.

The great thing about a frittata is that you can add pretty much any vegetables you have in the fridge, so feel free to experiment a bit.

I got the inspiration for this recipe from The Healthy Chef’s website and just tweaked it a bit to suit the ingredients I had. I made the dish for a dinner party and they were a hit (although one guest said they could have used a little more salt, so add salt to your liking). You can find the original recipe here.

Makes 12 large fritters

Ingredients

4 medium zucchinis grated (leave to dry out for about 10 minutes)
1 cup green peas
1 bunch of coriander, chopped
6 eggs
¾ cup LSA or almond meal
Zest from 1 lemon
1 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and pepper to taste

Getting Fit for Free

We all want to get in better physical condition; there is no hiding the fact that most people are unhappy with their physique, so it baffles me as to why we all ( and I say we meaning myself included) make so many excuses to put off exercising. One of the most common excuses I run into is that it’s too expensive to get in shape, and that is some reasoning I can’t even begin to comprehend. After thinking about it though, I can kind of see where people run into that mindset; the media markets diet pills, gym memberships, ab-lounge exercise chairs, plastic surgery, and all sorts of methods to lose weight making it seem as though shelling out a fortune is the only way to get more aligned with your ideal body. The good news is that we live in a world full of many opportunities to tone up for free while basking in the beauty that nature has to offer us.
