Every morsel we eat plays a role on our spiritual journey. The energy of our food becomes a part of our being, it goes soul deep - flooding into our cells; directly impacting our vibration by either lowering or raising it (depending on what we choose to consume). We are spiritual beings in physical, human [...]
Porridge! It's warming, filling and very satisfying to have porridge in the morning for breakfast. A welcomed change from my usual superfood smoothies on chilly winter days too. About gluten-free oats (for those who need to watch their gluten intake) Now, I must admit, being very sensitive to gluten I used to find that porridge [...]
Superfood smoothies are my favourite way to start the day! I always feel so honoured that I am able to gift my body with the benefits of these little treasures. They give me a sustained boost of energy and flood my system with a wonderful vibrancy to keep me energised all morning long. I don't [...]
Today I am sending you warm tropical breezes, writing from the Canary Islands. I am away from home on a private retreat for my own self-inspired healing. Rest, letting go, hiking in the beautiful countryside are all the order of the week. To be honest, I've had several strong wake-calls over the last year to [...]
Being a retreat chef - what a joy! Not only do I get to make the most delicious soul-inspired food and serve it to the most beautiful souls on retreat, it gives me the enormous privilege of filling my shopping trolley with bountiful loads of delicious, organic goodness! It's like a delightful treasure hunt as [...]
Breakfast, snack food, dessert, easy camping meal - granola has a multitude of satisfying uses! When it comes to granola I love a bit of a crunch. I love it when it sticks together so that I can reach into the jar for a cluster or two whenever that jar should catch my eye. Not [...]
During the chillier months of my childhood, I’d often bounce down to the kitchen for breakfast, all wrapped up in a bundle of warm clothes, to find a pot of oat porridge bubbling away. It was a bit of a staple morning time meal back then, living near the chilly borders of Scotland. Scotland provides [...]
This smoothie is so incredibly delicious that I am enjoying it a few times a week at the moment. I started making up this particular blend to give myself a super infusion of nutrition. It contains some of the healthiest and nutritious plant-based foods on our planet.
Hemp is a superfood; one of the most amazing plants for human health that exists on our planet. It’s over-flowing with nutrients, so much so, that I insist on incorporating it regularly into my already super-healthy, plant-based diet.
Everything in my world just flows much better when I get my day off to a good start with a vibrant breakfast. It frees up my energy so that I can give myself more passionately to my projects, my relationships and my work. It just makes the world a better place. What I decide to eat plays a really important role in that. I like to feel that every morsel weaves nourishment through every cell of my being; filling me with top quality plant-based protein, essential fats, minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and phyto-nutrients.
If you fancy a healthy, creamy smoothie then it must be said… cashew nuts work wonders. They are excellent for those on a plant based diet or those looking for healthier options; creaming up really well, satisfying the desire for something rich and delicious. They are also packed with vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, protein and loads of health-promoting phyto-chemicals that help protect us from diseases and cancers.
What an incredible way to start the day! This is a blend designed to really set you up for the day, with a sustained boost of energy and its high protein, nutritious and adaptogenic qualities. It's an easy, fast way to support yourself nutritionally, if you have a busy or stressful schedule, because it is just loaded with supportive stuff.
Pecans are rich, buttery nuts that are native to southern parts of the USA. They have an impressive nutritional profile; rich in essential fats, protein, anti-oxidants, are anti-carcinogenic and are full of minerals and vitamins (especially from the B family). I don't buy them too often, although when I do, I favour the good quality [...]
When it comes to making smoothies the limit is your imagination. There are so many different combinations possible that you could enjoy a different smoothie every day of the year. Some blends, do however, really dance together… like this blueberry, lemon & cashew breakfast smoothie. […]
There's nothing like a bit of healthy luxury every now and again; especially when enjoying a few days of well earned R&R! This smoothie is rich in healthy fats for a somewhat creamy, indulgent treat. I use canned coconut milk (rather than the sort you might use for breakfast cereal etc.). I use the purest, [...]
Blackberry season is well underway here in the UK, with a bumper crop of deep purple fruits adorning the wild hedgerows. If we take the time to explore, we easily find that mother nature brings us the most amazing bounty of freely available superfoods – like blackberries – without the need of spending a small [...]
Until recently it just never occurred to me how delicious plums would be in a smoothie. I’ve been totally blessed with a small Victoria Plum tree, bearing the juiciest, sweetest fruits. After enjoying them straight off the tree in abundance, I’ve been trying all sorts of ways to embrace this bountiful harvest. As well as [...]
There’s something deeply satisfying about the vibrant sweetness of a summer garden berry smoothie, especially with fruit freshly gathered from your own raspberry and strawberry plants (if you are fortunate enough to grow your own that is). For years, my soft fruit crops never seemed to yield enough to allow me to bring any back [...]
I am often asked about healthy breakfast options... Most of the time, I enjoy fresh fruit or a smoothie in the morning, although there are days when fruit just doesn't cut it. When deciding on what to eat for breakfast I want to make sure that every morsel is healthful, nutritious and of course, delicious. [...]
Check out my other healthy drinks here: Healthy Drinks In a culture that tends to bombard us with pollution, free-radicals, electro-smog and a myriad of vibrational lowering stress, I love to know that every morsel of what I eat is supporting my health and helping keep my vibration high. I love starting off the first [...]
Smoothies make a regular appearance in our house around breakfast time each morning. Apples don’t always spring to mind when people think of smoothies, which is a bit of a pity because they really are one of natures finest super foods, well worthy of our attention. I find that adding a little tahini (a paste [...]
