Raw Matcha and Peppermint Chocolate Crunch

Hello there, Ah, finally I am back in the kitchen creating again (very much my happy place). It feels like such a long time since I've posted a recipe but life just got really busy for a while. You may have seen over on Facebook that my youngest little love India (now nearly 22 months) started daycare 2 days a week very recently. For the first time since she was born I now have a window without a child being by my side 24/7. As much as I treasured this time, I now feel I can breathe again and finally start to climb my mountain of 'things to...

Easter Raw Salted Caramel Bars

Hello there, Can you believe that Easter is just around the corner?! It seems like just yesterday that I was writing about Easter treats and it was a whole year ago!This year our family is heading back to New Zealand for the Easter break, firstly to Nelson in the South Island, where my husband James is from, and then the North Island to see my family. I'm already thinking about what Easter treats to make or bring. We've managed to avoid the whole Easter egg thing with my little ones in previous years but with the cousins around and the excitement of the no...

The Low Down on Buckwheat + Cacao Buckwheat Slice

One of the first times I tasted buckwheat was travelling through Uzbekistan and given the other food types on offer it was one meal I really looked forward to each day. The buckwheat was served as a creamy porridge called Kasha, which is made with roasted buckwheat. These days I tend to use unroasted buckwheat in my recipes, which comes in the form of buckwheat groats – small golden triangles (hulled) that can also be soaked and activated to maximize their nutritional value.Buckwheat is a nutrient dense food with a huge range of health benefits.  Although buckwheat contains wheat in its name...

Christmas Raw Mango Cheesecake

Hello there, I have always loved mangos. Even during my many years in London where the mangos were flown in from the other side of the world (and tasted like a shadow of a fresh Australian mango), I remained very committed to this beloved fruit! I remember visiting one of my favourite foodie markets in London and meeting an elderly man, stooped under an enormous basket of mangos. He lent in towards me and told me he had cured himself of cancer by eating mangos every day. Who knows the truth in that but I loved his story and it just affirmed my mango...

Chai Spiced Raw Bars + My Love of Chai

Hello there,  My love of chai began many years ago during my first trip to India. I was backpacking with a friend, completely wide eyed and overwhelmed from the colours, smells, poverty, richness, spirituality and beauty - a complete sensory overload. This was my first memory of trying chai, though it's hard to say whether I could actually taste any kind of spice as it was so ridiculously sweet my spoon could have stood upright in the cup.   I loved having a chai straight from the chai wallah - no plastic cups here just piles of lovely unfired pottery 'disposable' cups. I was pleased to finally use these cups that we bought back from India...

Interview with Danielle Glover + Gluten Free Mixed Seed Bread Recipe

  I met the lovely Danielle from DnA elements when she was recently visiting Sydney.  The first thing that struck me about Danielle was that she was absolutely glowing, her skin was flawless and she was was a picture of health (a great advocate for her organic skincare range).  This woman has a lot on on her plate (a mother of three, a business owner, a compounding pharmacist, a complimentary medicine student just to name a few) as you will read below Danielle takes it all in stride and seems  capable  of anything                ...

Maqui Berry Raw Superfood Cheesecake

I'm in love again As most of you probably know by now, I have a bit of a love affair with super foods! I do have some of my trusted favourites but I'm always open to trying something new. So I have fallen in love again, this time with Maqui Berry. Call me superficial but part of me has fallen purely for it's looks - the most beautiful deep purple colour that illuminates any dish it is added to (smoothies, cakes, chia pudding). Thankfully there is much more to Maqui Berry than just it's looks - it has plenty of nutritional benefits to boast about...

Black Rice – More Antioxidants than Blueberries + Superfood Black Rice Pudding

Black Rice – More Antioxidants than the Beloved Blueberry! There is a lot of talk about how black foods are now the new green superfoods. For me the greens will always take pride of place but it is hard to ignore the growing list of black superfoods power-packed with nutritional benefits. Some examples include black chia seeds, black lentils, black beans, reishi mushrooms, black sesame seeds and of course black rice!               The Scoop on Black Rice Black rice, also known as purple rice or forbidden rice, it is loaded with iron, 18 amino acids, fibre, vitamins and more. ...
