RAW coconut, blueberry and goji popsicles

RAW coconut, blueberry and goji popsicles

Sometimes it is simply too hot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Luckily, every $2 shop worth its salt sells popsicle moulds, and making something good is pretty simple. (Note: for a creamier version, replace coconut water with coconut cream – equally amazing but def not raw!) Ingredients: 2 cups fresh (or frozen) blueberries 1 cup...
RAW cacao-banana chia breakfast balls

RAW cacao-banana chia breakfast balls

Variation on a familiar theme, these raw food balls are an easy and nutritious idea for breakfast or morning snacks. Chia seeds are a great addition to breakfast as they are higher in potassium than bananas and contain more calcium than milk! Healing ingredients:  Banana: High in fibre, iron, protein B6 and B12, bananas are...
PICKLED: Spiced beetroot and pear chutney

PICKLED: Spiced beetroot and pear chutney

Due to a bit of over enthusiasm with the blender, this chutney looks like more of a relish but it is lovely all the same! Garlic-free , onion-free and sugar free, I used both red and gold beets, corella pears and stevia leaves to generate sweetness. Cube the pears and beets for more of a...
RAW breakfast: green tea soaked prunes with vanilla bean coconut yoghurt

RAW breakfast: green tea soaked prunes with vanilla bean coconut yoghurt

‘Free’ and ‘radical’ are two of my favourite words, but in the context of your insides, an accumulation of free radicals disrupts the development of healthy living cells – a process linked to heart disease and cancer. Free radicals gain their name from the radical process in which, once ‘freed’ from a weak molecular bond,...

Hempseed has a rich, nutty flavour and can be consumed as an oil, or in seed form. It is a strong source of omega-3 essential for vegans and vegetarians. Packed with high sources of protein, this hummus is great for topping roast vegetables, salads, spread on pumpernickel or with fresh vegetables. Sprinkle with extra hempseeds...
WARM date & gingerbread cake

WARM date & gingerbread cake

This cake is a veganised version of my mum’s gingerbread. It is so dense and decadent. I have no self control, so when I make this cake I do so knowing that I will be eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner…! However, obviously great for sharing, and if you bake in a more shallow...
RAW peppermint creams

RAW peppermint creams

In this recipe, coconut oil, desiccated coconut, peppermint oil and stevia are blitzed to create a creamy centre akin to the creamy fillings of after dinner mints. Depending on the desired texture, add more or less coconut oil to the mixture, and blitz until you are happy with the texture. For this recipe you can...

BAKED matcha & red bean marbled cupcakes

BAKED matcha & red bean marbled cupcakes

Matcha! Matcha! Matcha! It’s a push to call any cupcakes healthy, but I think these ones come pretty close. With a matcha green tea base, red bean swirl and a sprinkle of pistachios they are also gluten free -and of course, vegan. So, close enough really! I used a recipe from Eat Drink and Be...
RAW Sauerkraut

RAW Sauerkraut

Sauerkraut craving! I rarely crave fermented foods – a bit of miso here, some tempeh there, but I read this beautiful post ‘Healing Wise – Herbal Vinegars’ on Weed Wanderings (linked from Wise Woman Tradition) and worked up a sauerkraut craving. I have only really ever eaten sauerkraut in its cooked form, and have always loved it. But...

BAKED lemon, coconut, sesame & cranberry cookies

BAKED lemon, coconut, sesame & cranberry cookies

These cookies are sweet and zesty all at once , and for optimum flavour, try to use organic options for all ingredients. You will need a blender to blitz the ground flaxseeds and water – a handheld mixer will do the job fine. The use of ground flaxseeds was inspired by a recipe here from...
