My own health journey started when I was just 12 years old, and it is a journey that has seen me change my approach gradually over the years, moving towards a plant-based diet and a holistic approach to healing the body. You can read more about how I began on my journey in the About and My Story sections.
Changing our attitude towards food is one the best decisions we can make. We start to see significant improvements when we turn to a diet rich in wholefoods and organic produce and limit our intake of gluten, dairy, animal products, processed foods and refined sugar. Some of the most notable improvements you might recognise could be in the clearing of skin problems and and digestive issues, and even the balancing of hormones (I speak from example here).
I completely appreciate that every body is different, but changing your diet to something similar to mine that I’ve mentioned will have you feeling more energised, restore and balance the digestive system and glowing from the inside out. The best way to know what’s best for your body? Tune in, listen to it, try new approaches, and your body will soon guide you to what feels best.
When a craving for chocolate kicks in, there can be no better cure than a sweet, chocolatey, gooey brownie that melts in the mouth and sends all your worries away. Brownies have become extremely sweet over the years, loaded with more sugar and butter to appeal to the masses. These brownies are a much healthier… Continue reading Chocolate & Orange Sweet Potato Brownies
The inspiration for this recipe came about after a trip to Asia, more specifically Malaysia. A simple raw salad that I ate in Kuala Lumpur that came with a toasted sesame dressing was a dish that I just couldn’t get out of my head for months after. The recipe has become the most popular on… Continue reading Asian-Inspired Raw Rainbow Slaw
I adore foods with crunch. That might sound weird, but I bet many of you absolutely get where I’m coming from. I’m talking about the likes of crackers, toasted seeds and nuts, crusty gluten-free bread and – of course – granola. The list is endless. Paired with baked apple (so soft and sweet), this granola… Continue reading Granola Crunch with Baked Apple & Cinnamon
I have been so determined to make the perfect gluten-free cauliflower pizza base for quite some time, as pizza is hands-down one of my favourite foods of all time yet I rarely eat it anymore because of the amount of gluten and dairy in ordinary pizza. You may not think of cauliflower as the most… Continue reading The Perfect Gluten-Free Cauliflower Pizza Base
Hummus is something that goes with pretty much everything. It’s amazing to dip vegetables in as a snack, it’s a great salad topper and it’s awesome spread on gluten free bread with slices of apple. Anything goes, quite frankly; and because it’s bursting with goodness – such as excellent sources of fibre, healthy fats, calcium,… Continue reading Roasted Red Pepper & Smoked Paprika Hummus
Kale has gained a huge cult following in recent years and there are now even t-shirts with ‘kale’ written across them in big, bold writing. It’s totally cool to love kale. I do! If you’ve heard all about kale but are still not sure about it or are a little intimated by the dark leafy… Continue reading Crispy Kale, Steamed Beets & Mint Salad
Do you ever get the craving for an intense bite of something seriously crunchy? I used to love the end piece of a warm and freshly-baked loaf of bread, I would wait until last so that I could take the leftover – and slightly burnt – crispy chips and I, still to this day, pine… Continue reading Almond, Mixed Seed & Caraway Crackers
This dip was created to go with my Almond, Mixed Seed & Caraway Crackers. I was rummaging through the kitchen cupboards one day when I came across some black olives, and I quickly envisaged these working well with black beans to create a seriously heavenly dip. Man, was I right! The saltiness of the olives and… Continue reading A Simple Olive & Black Bean Dip
Curry is a funny word really; it’s said that the word most probably derived from the Tamil word ‘kari’, meaning sauce in India. The word curry doesn’t even exist in India, but the English adopted the word many years ago and we now seem to use it to describe any South Asian dish with a… Continue reading Butternut Squash, Lentil & Coconut Curry
