GOING DAIRY FREE // HEMP MILK RECIPE

IMG_5282.jpg

It’s already nearly the end of March, Easter is around the corner and I am over here just trying to get a grasp of this whirlwind life has been the last couple of months. This week’s blog post is a little bit different – I wanted to check in and say hey! Let you know what’s been going on in the world of Miss Bliss and share what I am up to (mainly because I know posting it here will keep me accountable)

The start of March bought in our new Autumn menu, which was a big process for the whole MB team. We changed over to Acai Flow for a 3-month trial which so far, so good! The decision was made on ease for the staff and efficiency for customers. Now we can get bowls our quicker and faster!

While this was all happening, I had just started wholesale supply for a new contract and as it always happens – struggled to find staff for a new position in our wholesale kitchen. This took its toll on me – physically and emotionally, but I pushed through. In the back on my head after a horrendous 16-hour day I would just say to myself ‘just get through this, you HAVE to make it work’ and as much as I doubted myself in that moment – I survived. 

In between the madness of Miss Bliss, I was very honoured to be asked to talk at several events for International Women’s day. This made me reflect on so many things and it was such an incredible opportunity, I know I have said it a few times – but I have a blog post in the works that I wrote leading up to International Women’s day, I just want to make sure it is perfect before I post.

Last weekend it all caught up to me though, I was a mess emotionally, physically and mentally. This was one day before I was hosting my Real Women Co. event with my good friend Katherine. We had worked so hard to create this event for 80 business women in Brisbane and I was crashing. I had hit a wall, I didn’t know what to do.  

As I sat at working writing lists upon lists of what I needed to complete before the event (because I found myself forgetting so much) I ran into a good friend’s mum, she could see I was on the verge of being burnt out. I know my health hasn’t been a priority as of late, I know I haven’t been drinking enough water, I’m forgetting to eat – yes, I own a café, but I wasn’t doing anything right! After a long talk about my health and everything in between I have decided to go dairy free for 3 weeks and see how it changes my mood, body and emotions. This isn’t a fad or diet – for me I like to do an elimination to see how things affect me and what makes ME feel better. I’m not going to lie, my decisions are made so much easier having Miss Bliss to turn to for food, I can always count on my girls to make me a great coconut latte! 

But in my efforts to be a little more creative at home and try new foods, Ruby (our newest member to the MB team in events and media) and I made some hemp milk with our favourite hemp hearts from Hemp Factory Australia. It is delicious, creamy, nutty, a complete protein and high in omega 3 FA.
