Happy Easter! Raw Dessert and Australia Part 1
Happy Easter to you and yours! I'm home just in time to celebrate the Easter weekend with J and my family. As I mentioned in my last post, I've just been on holiday in Byron Bay, Australia for a few weeks with my friend Ulyana who's from southern OZ and who you might recognize from my last Australian trip. It's one of my favorite places in the world and it's my third time here. If you've been here before you probably know what I'm talking about. Everything about it is great - the weather, the beaches, the people, the shops, the cafes - you can get fresh juice and smoothies in every cafe in town. Healthy, organic, raw, and vegan are the norm here.We rented rooms in a wonderful "yoga homestay" which I found on Air bnb. Awesome webite if you're looking for affordable accommodation and you want a kitchen. We also rented a car which is handy around here.
We snapped this pic during our road side picnic in the middle of nowhere on our way to the rain forest one sunny afternoon.
Here's our accommodation. We share the house with a girl from Germany.
It's a cosy little place...
...With a great back yard!
The yard is complete with a yoga studio! We were in our element and lucky to be able to use it almost any time we wanted.
Isn't it a gorgeous studio? We enjoyed taking a few classes from the woman, Elana, who own's the house and studio. Otherwise we did our own practice in here.
There's a yoga platform in the back yard. Just perfect - except when the mozzies are out!
We took advantage of this gorgeous spot to do a yoga photo shoot! But more of those pictures to come on Food and Yoga for Life along with the rest of the trip.
Byron Bay has the most incredible beaches. Long beach walks with my feet in the ocean on a hot summer's day is one of my favorite things to do.
More Australian adventures to come and will be posted on Food and Yoga for Life so stay tuned!
Have you been enjoying special Easter treats this weekend? Yesterday I made blueberry cheesecakes which we will enjoy this evening but since I don't have photos to share yet, here's what I made last year for Easter:
