FLORA EX MACHINA

The “Akasha” or life force is a chronicle of all past, present and future events since our first existence. Used as a life tool, we are able to access this energy and a person’s guides to understand and work through deep-rooted trauma, to heal, to understand our soul’s purpose, to find support to life’s most complex questions, or simply to understand where we came from and how best to live out this life to the fullest.

gluten free sponge cake with saffron, royal ghee and yogurt

In my opinion, desserts should be guiltless, delicious, and outrageously satisfyingly decadent at the same time. My mind goes to beautifully decorated tea cakes, flavored with floral essences, and topped with sugar flowers. Each bite is savored, the last bite lingering. Desserts are a special occasion in of themselves – a presentation fit for a queen.

Healthy indulgences may sound a bit like an oxymoron, but why can’t the decadent foods we crave be just as nutritious and crave-worthy? Can’t we have it all? In a world of contradictions and stereotypes, we crave the unknown, complex, and unobtainable while also desiring the simplistic, wholesome, and sustainable. It may be hard to […]

Ayurvedic Rose and Saffron coconut yogurt lassi

I don’t remember the first time I tried a lassi, but every first sip I am instantly transported to another place and time. I’m a sucker for the delicate yet complex floral and exotic flavor the saffron and rose provide diffused into the tartness and creaminess of the buttermilk.
