How to pick, ripen & store the perfect avocado

Avocados are one of my holy grail foods. When they’re good, they’re amazing – but when they’re bad they could almost make me cry with disappointment!

How To Snack Like a Pro

I love snacking. I LOVE IT. I would quite happily never eat proper meals, and just snack all day long. My friends will make fun of me sometimes because no matter how much or little I eat, I need to eat again 2 hours later. Eating frequently keeps your blood sugars stable and energy up, but of course it’s important to choose what you …

Apples, Delicious Apples!

  Apples have always been one of my favorite fruits. They’re such a great snack, especially when you’re in a rush or away from home – a must for kids lunchboxes.  Not only are they sweet crunchy and delicious, but they don’t have to be refrigerated, they don’t bruise easily, and you don’t have to peel them. I keep a few …

Berry Icecream Smoothie With Chocolate Sauce

Caramel Smoothie Bowl With Chocolate Sauce

Of course I had to top this with extra chocolate because that’s just how we roll. But you can make yours all healthy and put a piece of kale on it or something. Just kidding, please don’t do that. 3 frozen bananas, cut into chunks 3 Medjool dates, pitted 1 small teaspoon blackstrap molasses 1 cup coconut water 1 teaspoon vanilla paste/ground …

Over the past few years as I have gravitated to a whole foods plant based diet, I have always found it easy to eat well at home, but eating out has been a totally different story! Most cafes and restaurants didn’t know what raw or vegan food was let alone have it on their menu. 2015 really is a huge year for …
