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 have  many occasions where I have eaten half a jar, in some crazed frenzy, and thought well, that’s dinner taken care of. This behaviour is […]

Raw Salted Caramel Fudge

Sometimes I feel I am a walking contradiction. A cacophony of opposing traits. A tiny ball of chaos that is obsessed with systems and order. Overflowing with love. Cries way too much. A pillar of strength, with the potential to crumble any second. Overly proud. Overly vulnerable. Filled with terror, yet as brave as can be. It’s very confusing.Tomorrow […]

Pistachio + Rose Rocky Road

In the past, optimism was a characteristic that seemed to elude me. I could have safely been labelled the ‘glass half empty’ kind. The good news is however, due to the cleverness of the human brain, a hopeful, optimistic attitude is something you can actually acquire. If optimism is a gene that you inherit, I […]

Apricot Coconut Bliss Balls

Well, here we are, the start of the new school year. I have mixed emotions about this, yet again. Although it is just a day, and my son is only one measly day older than yesterday, the start of a new grade signifies that my little baby is much further away from being a baby. […]

Raw Fruit + Nut Chocolate Bark

Of all the recipes I post on this site, the raw vegan treats are, by far, the most popular. Which suggests to me that we are more health conscious now than we have even been. We are informed, and aware. Nutritious ingredients –  the superfoods – have become so popular, that they are now affordable and accessible. These […]

Choc – Peanut Butter Shake

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 […]

Frozen Choc Banana Pops

  Whether you want to drop a few extra kilos or just want to make healthier choices, organisation is fundamental to your success. I constantly fall into the trap of letting myself get too hungry, and reaching for the the first thing in sight – the quickest way to satisfy those hunger pangs. It is almost […]

Choc-Tahini Spread

  Those of you who know me well, already know I am big on ‘homemade’. Rather than buying products from the store, I prefer to recreate my own versions at home. I am fairly certain this has been instilled in me from my childhood. Growing up with a single mum, funds were very limited. We didn’t […]
