I honestly cannot believe how fast the year is flying away! March didn’t start off all that great for me. I started on a brand new project, so there were some initial challenges. Thankfully, I was able to resolve them within a couple of days. I was also working on putting a summary of my conference learning. I find it really inspiring to attend conferences as it helps me think about the big picture (I sometimes get too bogged down with the smaller details).

Other major tasks this month included two paper revisions. I am back to do doing some teaching and supervising an interesting project (the semester started earlier this month). It is hard to juggle at times, but I still find it to be very rewarding and fun!

In other news, I am also working on creating some content for my blog. However, progress has been slow because most of the time I am in the ‘blog planning’ phase and struggle to find the time to put my plans into action. Happy to say, I am working on ways to manage my time better, so hopefully there will be more content coming up soon.

There were a few personal struggles too (was sick for a couple of days and dealing with an ongoing internal conflict which has been going on for longer than it should). But I know that it’s probably not going to stop until I get things off my chest. I know that won’t be happening anytime soon, so I decided to start a gratitude journal this month. I tried the #30daysofthankfulness challenge on Instagram last year, and I have been thinking about making it a regular thing since then. It has only been three weeks, but I like it so far.

Overall, it has been a pretty good month. I was able to tick off a few things off my list, so I feel like things are finally starting to look up, yay!

Here are some of my fav eats from March 🙂

Sultana and almond teacake (baked after so long….)
I have always loved pancakes but it’s hard to make them on a weekday. So, I made a big batch and chopped up pancakes into bite-sized pieces and paired with cottage cheese. Oh, so delicious!
Not the best photo of Chinese Broccoli…but I’ve fallen in love with Asian greens this month. My favourite type is Kangkung
Cacao spread on sourdough. This is another new obsession.
Rainy days call for my favourite comfort food ‘khichuri’. I have been obsessed with this ever since I was young, but the only difference is that mine is now packed with a lot more vegetables! Click here to get a similar recipe.
This is now go-to snack. I’m currently obsessed with corn thins. My favourite toppings include peanut butter, cacao and cottage cheese. I sometimes put two when I can’t decide!
White quinoa, lentils and veggies. I have recently rediscovered my love for beetroot and boiled egg. They are so great for work lunches.
Leaving my favourite till the last,  I made a big batch of oat banana pancakes and topped it off with chocolate chips. It also served as a weekday breakfast once cut up #winning 🙂
