Insta is where it’s at


Happy New Years, very belated Christmas and all that…
It’s with sadness that I’m writing my very last blog post. HOWEVER, it’s not the end of me  I’ve just decided to wrap up the blogging aspect of Essence of Zali for multiple reasons, but mainly because I’m quite frankly finding it a bit of a chore to think up topics and write frequently. Blogging shouldn’t be a chore and don’t want to be making an extra chore in my life, because we all have enough of them don’t we?! I have also decided to shut down my Facebook page so I can focus solely on my Instagram page (@essenceofzali) as it’s so much easier, quicker and more fun to supply content that way. So head on over there if you wish to keep following my life – although it doesn’t seem overly interesting I know. However, I can guarantee I’ll be sharing SO much more stuff than what I do on my blog; more recipes, tips, views, and just general life stuff.

Looking forward to seeing you all in insta world!

My Five Favourite…Foods

Let’s chat about food; my favourite topic! I basically love and eat everything, except for coriander, pine nuts and anchovies (VOM), but I feel like they’re pretty standard foods to hate. There are, however, five particular foods that I eat on repeat and are always a must have in my pantry…well fridge due to living in North West Queensland.

Oat pancakes

Long time no chat guys! I’ve been having these little pancakes for breakfast quite often lately so I thought I’d share. I created this recipe yonks ago when I was going through a pancake obsession and now having made them again after so long, I have no idea why I stopped!

Love is love

Why must the longevity and love of so many Australian couples continue to be constituted by naivety and a piece of paper? How has this highly sensitive matter been degraded to crappy postage vote? Most importantly, why are we still discussing this?

A healthy mind

I truly believe that a healthy mind is just as vital as a healthy body. Like we look after our body through exercise and nutrition, I really believe we should look after our mind through taking time out, relaxing and, for some, therapy. I have never seen one, but I don’t look at people whom see a psychologist or therapist as ‘weak’ or ‘dramatic’; I actually see them as strong and proactive. We treat a cut or gash to our body to help it heal, so why wouldn’t we do the same with our mind?
