Enjoy your fruits & vegetables in a whole new way! Join the workshop on 25 October in Brussels!


Want to learn about the art of juicing, making smoothies, preparing fresh organic pestos, purees, nut butters and more? Katariina Bastos (friend, yogini and juice aficionado) and myself organise a workshop about these topics. We will be using the JazzMax slow juicer and a blender.

During the workshop you’ll discover the ins & outs of juicing and blending, which vegetable and fruit combinations work best, when to juice, how to prepare, how to clean, how to store. As well as how to make nut butters, spreads, pesto and even sorbet ice cream.

Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 10.05.58The workshop takes places in Uccle (Brussels), on Saturday 25 October from 3-6 PM. The price for the 3 hour workshop, including all organic ingredients (and the opportunity to buy the Jazz Max juicer with a discount) is 45€ per person.

Please register by sending me an e-mail.
Event on Facebook.

Your registration will be final once you’ve made the payment. The workshop will take place if there are at least 8 registrations, if there are less people, then it will be cancelled, you will be refunded entirely. If after confirmation of the workshop YOU need to cancel, then you can send another person in your name, but there won’t be a refund.

Early morning yoga challenge from 21 to 25 October 2013


This is the 3rd time Sampoorna Yoga Studio organizes the Early Morning Yoga challenge, every day from Monday to Friday this week there’s a 60 minute asana class followed by a free yogic (vegan) breakfast. If you didn’t come yet, please do, it’s a wonderful experience and getting out of bed isn’t hard at all once you know you’ll give yourself the gift of yoga (& won’t have to think about breakfast as it’ll be prepared for you!).

Looking forward to welcoming you this week in at least once morning class.

Om Shanti


Porridge Ⓥ

Especially in winter time (whenever it’s cold basically), I love to start my day with yoga (obviously) and then a scrumptious, easy to prepare, filling & warm breakfast. This porridge recipe gives you enough energy until lunchtime !

Ingredients (I prefer organic)

  • 2 cups non-dairy milk of choice (preferably unsweetened) or mix of water & non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 tsp chia seeds or ground flax seeds (omega 3)
  • A handful of raisins (low G-I sweetener) or chopped dates
  • Half an apple or banana
  • 1 tbsp sunflower or pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tsp mesquite or maca powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut butter or nut butter
  • 1 tbsp shredded coconut (optional)


  1. Cinnamon-Porridge-with-Nuts-and-Dried-Fruits-500Put oats in a pan with the non-dairy milk and raisins.
  2. Once it boils, then let it simmer for a few minutes on a low fire/ heat until the oats soften.
  3. Add more milk or boiling water if your porridge is too thick.
  4. Add the spices, powder, and coconut or nut butter.
  5. Add the porridge to a bowl, top with coconut flakes.

You can vary with the fruits & dried fruits depending on what’s in season & what you have at home (i.e. replace the raisins with goji berries, dried dates, apricots or cranberries).

These quantities are enough for a few servings depending on your appetite.

Om shanti -ॐ शान्ति
