Overnight Hemp Soaked Oats with Pecan nuts, Mulberries & Mint

Last week I completed a ten day natural building course in the Tsitsikamma, Western Cape. My fiancé and I dream of building our own off grid, eco friendly house along the garden route with a massive bamboo yoga shala and bustling organic fruit and veggie garden for yours truly.

The Happiness Bowl – Tai Red Rice with Kale, Pumpkin Seeds, Sun Dried Tomatoes + Miso & Lemon Rind dressing
