My Weekend Retreat In The Mountains
To celebrate an awesome first six months of 2012, and map out the next six, my business power posse and I took off into the mountains for a few days over the weekend.
Susana Frioni, Nicola Chatham and I hired a house up in Springbrook Mountain in the Gold Coast Hinterland. We brainstormed ideas for each of our businesses, went hiking in the rainforest, breathed in the pure mountain air, meditated beside a waterfall, sat by the fire, and ate amazing food. I was in charge of feeding us for the weekend, so I packed up eskies full of produce and whipped up delicious, healthy meals for us. The juicer came as well (of course).
The house we stayed in is called Twin Falls Retreat. It’s so beautiful, with high ceilings, wooden floors, deep spa baths, and beds that were as comfy as clouds. I somehow scored the main bedroom and even had a shower with a window view looking out over the rainforest and mountains.
We completed misjudged how cold it is in the mountains. Hence, all three of us ended up wearing layers of the same clothes and the same socks for three days straight. I personally was more worried about packing enough food than packing enough clothes. We ended up with enough food to stay for a week, and barely enough clothes to keep us warm if we stepped away from the fire. Note for next time!
Here are a few snaps from our trip:
MASTERMINDING IN FRONT OF THE FIRE
Quinoa, coconut oil chips, and salad with pistachio nuts and chickpeas
Baked veggie patties made with brown rice and tonnes of veggies
Coconut milk veggie curry with brown rice (this recipe, but without lentils)
Positive affirmation for the day: The rest of 2012 is going to be freaking amazing!
