3 years ago, Nick asked me randomly what I wanted. My answer: strawberry and rhubarb crumble. This recipe is extra special as it took him 3 years to make it!
This recipe takes about 25 mins but the first time he attempted it, it took him over almost 2hrs to do it. Since then he's tried it again a few times and has cut the time down. It's actually quite an achievement from the guy that makes one other thing - a kale salad (which consists of kale, ACV and lemon juice)! It's actually a great one to try if you're not great in the kitchen, or don't want to follow the exact recipe as the crumble is flexible to allow for more of what you want in it.

I'm Binny, a full time Bikram Yoga teacher and studio owner that lives in Perth, Australia.
I started this blog to share the things I love the best in the world: being healthy and happy, food (especially raw), yoga, traveling and most importantly, learning how to love and be true to myself.
I suffered from severe digestive problems when I was younger, being gluten and lactose intolerant, and developed compartment syndrome and fibromyalgia in my teens. I have lived with constant pain for over 16 years now.
Over the past 10 years, I've shifted to a mainly plant based diet and realised that being well and healthy is a way of life. I have been teaching Bikram yoga since 2011, in the US and Australia. Due to my health issues I've also had a lot of bodywork done as well as explored alternative therapies.
I've become much more aware of myself as a result of all this - physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Right now I love my life. In my career I love what I do and I do what I love. I have traveled to some amazing places around the world and made lifelong friends. In between working and traveling, I cook up a storm in the kitchen, especially raw desserts, spend time with the people I love the best, which now includes a yoga husband, a mini yogini Estell, and our dog! I try to listen to my body the best I can.
I truly believe that we all have the power and the capabilities to heal our own bodies, to nourish the spirit and seek our own happiness and life's purpose. This my journey...
