raw rosey rocky road

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 […]

Cashew Maple Muesli Bars

Do you have certain songs that transport you to a particular time in your life? I do. I can listen to a song and instantly be hauled back to the past. But not just by way of memories, it’s much deeper than that. It’s as if the song pokes me hard in the heart with its index finger. And suddenly […]

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. […]

Fruit and Nut Tabouli

My life, over the last six months, has been tipped upside down and thrown on it’s head. Hence my lack of commitment to Eat This My Friend. Without delving too deeply into my personal life, I discovered that in times of total stress I completely lose my appetite. I have not been in the mood to […]

Spiced Vegetables and Buckwheat

I only recently got my driver’s licence. Just three months ago. For the last 34 years I had walked everywhere. Most people thought it was absolutely absurd, to be my age and not know how to drive. You see my mother doesn’t know how to drive so I was not raised with a car. We […]

Mustard-Maple Baked Beans, with Goats Cheese

  After a 2 week hiatus I am back. Apologies to those of you who were eagerly awaiting a new recipe in your inbox – I found I was placing unnecessary pressure on myself to get a blog post done. I decided to just let it go. Mind you, it was a difficult decision for […]

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 […]
