The Most Delicious Nourish Bowl

nourishbowlrecipe nourishbowl lottiemurphyblog healthyfood plantbased

Since writing my last blog post about my Spring reset, I had a little relapse. I got hit by the flu which completely wiped me out for a week but surprisingly it actually put me right off coffee and chocolate (two of my hard to budge vices), and I’ve launched nicely into my Spring reset this week-lemon water, green tea and lots of yummy fruit and vegetables. The illness also helped get me started on another of my Spring reset points which was to read before bed. The TV and my phone was giving me such a headache so I actually finished the book I was reading and am on to my next. I hate to say it but thank you flu. On Sunday, I was feeling well enough to take a trip to the farmers market and spend some time in the kitchen. I was craving all the vegetables to feel nourished from the inside out and I made my Mum and I this delicious nourish bowl. What is a nourish bowl?

Well hello Spring, lovely of you to finally arrive. I know it’s not exactly shorts weather but the fact we are not wrapping ourselves up in 100 layers anymore is just wonderful. It’s crazy how much you can appreciate a little bit of sunshine and blue skies after what feels like the longest Winter ever. I’m so excited to start swapping my morning bowl of porridge for yummy smoothies and to swap lazy afternoons watching movies on the sofa to picnics in the park with fresh fruit salads. I’m excited to feel lighter in my body and mind, a little bit sun kissed and more energised. Spring and Summer are my seasons. The Winter has dragged a little and I feel it’s taken it’s toll on my health more than usual this year- so I’m starting a little Spring reset. I’m not going to make any drastic changes but it feels like a good time of the year to hit refresh and remind myself of all the ways to feel amazing, glowing and alive.

Getting Motivated To Run This Spring | 10k Training

My Mum, the perfect example of a “non runner” perhaps even “non mover” at one stage set a goal to complete the couch to 5k last year and she did it. I hate to say that as though I’m surprised but she hasn’t really stuck to something fitness related ever. She stuck to the guidelines and schedule even during our family holiday in Portugal. Mum even continued to get her trainers on post the set 9 weeks and I went to a couple of Saturday morning 5k park runs with her near our home and it made me so proud seeing my mum cross the finish line. Since then, we’ve had a chat and realised that she needs a focus and new challenges to keep her motivated. Post Christmas she completed Race At Your Pace, receiving a little medal through the post as a sign of how she’s improved her fitness. After taking on my first fitness challenge last year and cycling 45 miles for the Princes Trust Palace To Palace Race and seeing Mum’s motivation recently I decided it’s time I signed up to a running challenge.

Where I’ve Eaten Out Recently In London

I love cooking at home, making recipes from my many many recipe books and creating my own concoctions from scratch but I must admit I do also eat out a lot because I love it! I live in London where it’s very hard not to be a foodie. I don’t really go to bars or clubs anymore and have definitely cut back on how much I spend on clothes so I feel this justifies that I do like to spend my money on coffees and food. Eek! From brunching to date night to the trendy new vegan fast food place here’s where I’ve eaten out recently and what I recommend ordering. Enjoy foodie friends…
