Healthy Living Ideas from The Hearth and Soul Link Party

Happy Spring! Welcome to The Hearth and Soul Link Party. Today I’m featuring posts from last week with healthy living ideas to inspire you.

At The Hearth and Soul Link Party, I welcome posts about anything that feeds your soul – from family, home, decorating, crafts and DIY to travel, organisation and self improvement. And of course, food from the hearth to feed your soul is a real favourite here too!

It has been a lovely weekend here in the UK. Good Friday and Easter Monday are statutory holidays here, so it makes for a lovely long weekend. I’m trying to prioritise healthy living ideas in my own life, so we had some lovely long walks, spent time with family and also took some time out to pamper ourselves. It was very restorative!

Healthy living ideas can be delicious too. Love raisin toast? Last week I shared a delicious bread you can make in your bread machine.

Last Minute Bread Machine Easter Bread at The Hearth and Soul Link Party

I call it Last Minute Easter Bread because it makes a great flavour substitute if you don’t have time to make homemade Hot Cross Buns. However, I make this bread all year round as it makes the most amazing raisin toast! My friend, Pauline Wiles, author of the Saffron Sweeting Trilogy, tried the recipe over the weekend and used orange juice instead of apple juice with great results. I’m definitely going to give this a try next time just to switch things up a bit!

Healthy living ideas can also include taking time out or even going on holiday. Planning a trip to London or fancy an armchair visit?

  1. April, I’ll be back on Thursday to check out more links AND to add a link to my fab tea and teapot giveaway post! I need a slice of your lovely bread, toasted, with a spoonful of that great looking strawberry chia jam from Sidewalk Shoes!

    • Thank you so much for visiting, Jean, and I’ll look forward to seeing your new post on Thursday! And thank you for the compliment on my bread – it would be lovely with Pam’s jam 🙂

  2. We have storms on the way and will most likely loose power, so I will be back later to visit everyone. Have a great week and thanks so much for the party!

  3. I finally remembered to link up this week! Somehow Mondays have flown by lately and I’ve missed linking up so I consider this a major victory. 😉 Your bread looks great and I really appreciate your latest trip report, April.

    Have a wonderful week! Thanks so much for hosting. 🙂

  4. Thanks for hosting the party April and enjoy the week.

  5. Hello, it is good to be back from my short vacation and join Hearth and Soul link party again! Yes, healthy eating can be delicious too 🙂

  6. Hi April…it looks like you had a lovely Easter with your family! Oh my, this week’s Hearth and Soul Hop is filled with so many goodies (especially your bread) and I can’t wait to dig into the fantastic healthy recipes! This week, I have a super-healthy quickie dinner to share…Salmon en Parchment. Have a wonderful rest of the week and as always, thank you so much or all you do!

    • It really was wonderful, Linda. I enjoyed your photos of Passover with your family too 🙂 Thank you so much for the compliment on my bread, and for visiting and sharing too. I love salmon and am looking forward to your recipe. Thank you so much for all your support, and especially your support of Hearth and Soul.

  7. I would love a slice of your bread with my mug of tea as I sit down to read your post about the Ritz!

  8. I also would like to taste a slice of your bread, but I can’t. So that, I’m going to copy your recipe and offer my Steamed bread with spelt flour and kalonji seeds. Hope you like it. Have a nice day.

    • Thank you so much, Marisa! I love spelt so I’m excited to read your bread recipe. I’m also interested to learn about kalonji seeds as they are a new to me ingredient. Hope your day is lovely too!

  9. Hi April,
    I am happy to be joining your party again this week. I have followed you on Instagram and Pinterest and Facebook. I have also subscribed to your blog. I look forward to getting to know you.

    • Hi Nikki! Thank you so much for joining us, for the follows and for subscribing! I will follow you back. It’s lovely to ‘meet’ you 🙂 Thank you so much for visiting and sharing!

  10. Staying at the Ritz! Your pictures are stunning! Lucky, lucky you that you could stay there — and to go back on your birthday in June! Wow. What a life. I’m envious.

  11. April, it would be wonderful if one of the Hearth and Soul regulars win my organic tea/teapot/shortbread giveaway!

  12. April, thank you so much for featuring my latest Whole Foods post! I love linking up here every week and always appreciate your hospitality. You are certainly the hostess with the mostess. 🙂
