I wanted again, to start this post with : ‘once upon a time’ as you know that I love to start my stories that way, but I don’t want to sound boring but really… this story deserves a ‘once upon a time’… so…
Once upon a time, a girl coming from Lithuania freshly arrived in London became my flatmate.
We lived together for a few months and this girl became one of my closest friend.
While living together she was making the effort to cook for me, it’s just so nice when you are used to live on your own, to have someone who cooks for you sometimes.
I remember her in our small kitchen, cooking her tomato soup when I was coming back from work.
When I say that she was making the effort is because when arrived in London she didn’t cook at all and was just eating a toast with an egg and a sausage on a regular basis.
Just a few years after her new fresh start in London, she’s still the same but even better.
She is still pretty, soft spoken with a few slang/rude words sometimes which makes me laugh, she’s still strong and focused and now, also can cook like a chef and very recently, graduated in India and became who she wanted to be : a yoga teacher.
She told me once that I was her inspiration when it comes to cooking, it makes me so proud and happy also that she gave up those bad sausages 🙂
Over the years, she also became my inspiration and is now my favorite yogini, so thinking about her this morning I woke up at 6.30am especially to attend my very first group meditation session. Oui ! oui !
She is also the one who gives me recipes. Yogi/vegan recipes to the I-am-French-I-eat-everything girl that I am and I wanted to share it with you as it’s been tested, and it’s delicious.
