Just do it!

Sometimes I feel like everything I do is stupid and irrelevant. I really struggle to find purpose in day to day life. It's a really bad mindset to get into because you end up doing absolutely nothing and getting annoyed with yourself for acting like a useless slug.

It's times like these when you've got to make yourself just do it. It may not be perfect, it may not be your best but at least you tried. 

Doing stuff makes you feel good. End of.

However society seems to have brainwashed us into thinking that work isn't fun. If you enjoy exercise you're probably a weirdo. If you don't mind doing your maths homework you must have a brain hemorrhage. Why on earth would you ever consider watching documentaries in your spare time you obscene excuse for a human being!!!???

We just need to stop building things up in our heads. Stop worrying about every last thing. Stop procrastinating and putting things on the long finger.

And for gods sake just post that damn recipe from 2 weeks ago, even if you only have one photo it was still freaking delicious!

Vegan Potato Salad with Hazelnuts and Spring Onion

The trick to this is the mayo. I made mine from scratch with a bunch of raw cashews that I soaked. I know you can buy olive oil mayo and other such contraptions but something really makes me doubt how nutritionally sound they are....

So basically soak a cup of raw cashews overnight. Drain them off and rinse them. Then blend them up with 3/4 of a cup of water, a clove or two of garlic, a generous tablespoon of dijon mustard, a nice splash of apple cider vinegar and a good bit of salt (about half a teaspoon).

Blend the lot until creamy and smooth and then give it a taste test. Add whatever you think it needs. I trust your intuition.

Boil a pot of baby potatoes. Chop up some spring onion. Toast a few handfuls of hazelnuts.

Wait impatiently for your potatoes to cool. Bish bash bosh. Chuck the lot together. Take a moment to admire your handiwork before allowing the ravenous beast within to come forth.
