Cinnamon-kissed, packed with tart apple chunks and crunchy granola- these powerful muffins are a delicious way to fiber up!
I have been treading lightly on the muffin making lately, after producing my fair share of flavoured card board. Although sometimes I think I can just throw any type of flour plus some dried fruit and call it a muffin masterpiece, the baking gods have other plans in mind 😉
The more creative I get in the kitchen, the more disasters that tend to occur- but this also leads to some pretty awesome ‘AHA’ moments too! Nothing ventured nothing gained right? (more…)
Spicy and smoky walnut ‘taco meat’ compliments a crunchy salad drizzled in a creamy tahini dressing.
Wakeup your winter lunch routine! Enough of those soups already…
Up until a couple weeks ago, if you asked me what ‘walnut meat’ was I would have assumed walnut crusted beef. But no. It is a thing. It is a marvellous thing that raw foodies like to do to enjoy gorgeous Mexican tacos sans creepy ground beef. (more…)
It is with wide open arms that I welcome back my chocolate addiction. After my guiltless Christmas blitz of lindor’s for breakfast, lunch and dinner I said tootleoo to chocolate for a little while. (Terrible decision, I know).
Although the separation brought on initial anxiety and withdrawal, I was able to push through a month or so without calling on my dark, rich and tasty friend for comfort. I had less cravings, slept easier and my tummy felt great. Life was good. But I missed my dear friend. (more…)
8 Days into the New Year, some resolutions are tossed to the side and some still going strong. In the last month or so I have gone through a lot of changes personally, and I am taking advantage of the fresh exciting start that 2014 has to offer. With me this always involves a lot of journaling, inspiring-quote reading, O magazine scouring and dream board making…haha…so I have a lot of free time on my hands.
Back to resolutions, I may as well get mine out there to make myself a little more accountable:
drink less wine (okay like 1 glass every 2 days is okay)
breakup with chocolate (keep him on the side though)
eat 80% vegan (besides goat cheese, feta cheese, chocolate and the odd egg)
yoga everyday (the relaxing kind not the kind that makes you sweat heaps)
So there ya go. I am keeping all my resolutions, but to a degree that suits me. Im really serious about the yoga thing though…if I do one exercise it should be one that also clears the head and reduces anxiety. (more…)
