Spiced Saffron Golden Milk
Sasha, a 25 year old food and fashion obsessed Recipe Developer and Social Media Manager from London, shares her favorite recipe of Golden Milk which not only helps sleep but also rejuvenates your gut health and immune system.
Sasha truly believes in the fact that our bodies are our temples and we should nourish them with foods that make us feel, look and perform our best. Health should always be your number one priority! Sasha is being bogging since July 2020 to inspire people to make healthier eating choices and to show you that healthy food can actually be exciting!
She was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2010, which meant that, unless she wanted to live a life overloaded on drugs (that often comes with many debilitating side effects), she had to make changes to her diet, lifestyle and mindset. So that’s what she did, with the help of her wonderful mum Nishtha Patel who actually changed professions at the age of 45 to study nutrition and help heal her Daughter.
Sasha Says: Through my mother, I learnt about the fundamentals of health and nutrition, which led to me taking a great interest in wellness in general! I’m always reading and learning about health, nutrition and food philosophy, which is why I try to make my blog more than just recipes. I try to educate you on the ingredients I use, as well as different health-related topics and lifestyle habits.
