Raw vegan mango cheesecake with raspberry chia sauce

The exciting challenge of using healthy ingredients in all my recipes has invited me to become somewhat creative over the years. I want every morsel to be jam-packed with nutritional goodness, for my health, longevity and all-around good vibrations.

Chilli Black Bean Soup with Mushrooms, Coconut & Sweet Potato

When it comes to soups I don't think I've ever made the same one twice (except when developing a recipe for my blog or books of course). The other day I was thinking about creating a soup that my both my 18-year-old son and myself would like. My son adores chillies and often has a [...]

Blueberry Chocolate Fudge Layer Pie – gluten-free, vegan, no-bake

Superfood sweet treats are easy to get excited about. They are surprisingly easy to make and in the case of today's Blueberry & Chocolate Fudge Pie, require no baking what-so-ever.

Simple Oatcake Wraps Using A Cast Iron Skillet – 2 ingredients (GF vegan)

Many years ago I visited my in-laws in Stoke-On-Trent in Staffordshire, England. My husband (now affectionately my ex) introduced me to a delightful invention - the 'Staffordshire Oatcake'. Not only were they naturally vegan, the traditional versions were also wheat-free. We stuffed them with hummus and salad and enjoyed the most delicious lunch. Another time, [...]

Malty Maca Granola Bars – naturally sweetened with dates (gluten-free vegan)

Maca is a welcomed gift of nature from high up the Andean Mountains of Peru. It has adapted to endure harsh conditions itself (harsh winds and cold temperatures) and so it's not surprising that it imparts some of those medicinal qualities to us amidst our own challenges of life. Maca is essentially an adaptogenic plant-food, [...]

When the winter kicks in, soup seems to get all the more cozy and inviting. It's that warm nurturing 'ahhhhhhhhh' feeling.
