Hello Chai Lovers,

Winter weather is perfect Prana Chai weather. Curling up by a fire with a freshly brewed mug of chai and a book is heavenly.

As most of you may know, we have successfully launched our newest blends- Turmeric Blend & Peppermint Blend a few days ago. We have been getting such positive feedback and It has been flying out the door!

The product of the month, without a doubt, is the Turmeric Blend starter box; it is carefully crafted from authentic chai spices with a healthy serving of high quality freshly ground turmeric. Simple natural and deliciously balanced spiced tea made from #onlythegoodstuff. Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Did you know that black peppercorns assist absorption of turmeric by up to 2000%? Amazing! Buy here.

We had a cup of chai with Laura Ford, she is a food blogger who graduated s a anutritionist/dietitian from Monash University, Melbourne. Her blog is a collection of her food filled life. From the food she eats, the food she cooks, the places she eats and the recipes she loves. We found out more about her and got the lowdown on her love of food

We also have lots of exciting news from us here at Prana Chai, including an Easy Breakfast : Chai Poached Pears recipe, announce for winners to our latest comp. So get cosy with your cup of chai and enjoy this month’s edition of the Prana Chai newsletter.

Love,

Mario, Koray, Vincent and whole Prana Chai family

: What makes you alive?

I am completely obsessed with food! I love it! I love cooking, eating, developing recipes, taking photos of food, dining out, trying new foods; it’s seriously just my favourite thing and gets me so excited. I’m also completely in love with my kitty, Evie, too.

: Words you live by?

Life’s too short for bad food.

: When was the last time you cried and why?

Not that long ago as I always cry when I cut onions! I actually don’t mind it as I can really let out my emotions haha.

: The strange thing about you?

I am obsessed with cats. If I’m not looking at pictures of food, I’m looking at pictures of cats.

: How can people find you and your update?

You can find me on Instagram at @laurafordnutrition or on my blog laurafordnutrition.wordpress.com

: Who’s your IG crush & why?

I absolutely adore @halfbakedharvest, @gatherandfeast, @talinegabriel and @georgeats. They all have such beautiful food, styling and the most inspiring imagery. I always want to dive into whatever they post and I love that they all have a healthy balanced approach to their eating.

Prana Chai Recipe

Easy Breakfast : Chai Poached Pears

“Chai has been traced to the Hindu natural healing system ‘ayurveda’ which prescribes specific herbs to aid with certain body ailments. The spice blend that I have used is called Prana Chai is made locally in Melbourne and served at many cafes.  I love the warm sweet taste of a chai latte if I’m not feeling like a coffee.  Rather than being dry, the spice blend is wet and the flavour of the spices infuses really quickly.  This blend contains Black Ceylon tea, Australian bushland honey, cinnamon, cardamon, star anise, peppercorns, cloves and fresh ginger.  The spicy chai flavour works perfectly with the soft pear flesh once it is cooked.” - the macadames

This recipe can be served warm or cold, either alone or with yogurt or oats

What you need:

  • Saucepan
