Raw Vegan Key Lime Pies

I am terrified of saying goodbye. Goodbye to people, to objects, to situations. And for some reason it makes no difference to me whether I am saying goodbye to something good or something bad. It is the ‘letting go’ that is the problem. It was my birthday over the weekend. And as usual, I got weird […]

Apple Slices with Cinnamon Almond Butter

As I have continually expressed, I have a long history of weird food behaviour and food obsessions. Yet there has never been an obsession greater than my affinity with peanut butter.

There was the lovely @inkedincolour who posted a gorgeous recipe for pumpkin cakes, they looked incredible and I was […]

I’ve never been mad about smoothies and protein shakes. There are many smoothie/shake/juice lovers out there, having one for breakfast every morning. I am not one of those – because it is a beverage. It’s definitely a psychological thing for me. I need eat food, to chew, in order for me to feel satisfied. You place all […]
