Happy New Year! I wish all my beautiful followers a year filled with happiness, excitement, bliss and all delicious things that make this life so great! If you’re trying to incorporate more healthier dishes into your life, then you’re in the right place!
Join me in nourishing our bodies with wholesome goodness (like with this Cauliflower Pizza & Sunflower Seed ‘Ricotta’), training our minds to incline towards the positive thoughts in life and incorporate more physical movement into our days to live our best possible life.
Now if you’re up for a challenge, I suggest you check out Veganuary. It’s an initiative to help inspire others to live a kinder way of life, making them aware of the impact they make on the world. The site has loads of recipes, information and inspiration, and I highly suggest you check it out and give it a go – it’s not too late to try.
” Veganism is one of the most effective choices a person can make to reduce the suffering of animals, help the planet and improve personal health.”
These days, with all the hype around the whirlwind of different diets/eating plans/lifestyle guides/’what-ever-you-want-to-call-them‘, it’s hard for me to keep up, let alone the person who’s tilting towards a healthier lifestyle and looking for a helpful guide. From vegan to raw vegan to vegetarian to paleo to banting to 80/10/10 to Raw til 4, this list carries on and on. Whether you’re looking for a diet that suits a gluten intolerance, or are seriously considering refraining from eating animals, there are so many inspiring people out there with bucket of knowledge and helpful advice to suit your specific requirements. What I encourage my clients is to find what feels right for their body. Get to know yourself, and how certain foods react with you. Find what feels good. I promote plant based lifestyle that is free from refined sugar, gluten and processed foods. Keeping it natural and nutritious.
With that being said, I created this delicious dish, that is my take on the traditional Tabbouleh. This one, however, is grain and gluten free, accommodating those with gluten intolerance, paleo diets as well as the banting masses. Continue reading
Yum! Yum! Yum! I seriously cannot get enough of this dish! I’ve always been fond of cauliflower, and these days there is so much you can do with it. From cauli-rice to cauli-pizza bases, the possibilities are endless with this versatile cruciferous vegetable. I remember growing up, whenever we had a roast dinner (blegh) my mum would make her famous Cauliflower Cheese. She made it so well and it was always a hit on the dinner table. So, I decided to try and replicate her dish, by giving it a healthy, vegan twist to satisfy my cravings.
I absolutely love it when recipes just work! And this one really really does! It is so delicious! The star of this dish is the ‘cheese’ sauce, and the main ingredient that stands out the most is the nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast is a pure strain of yeast that adds a cheesy and nutty flavor to vegan and vegetarian dishes. Continue reading
Cruciferous vegetables play an important role in a plant based diet. They are packed full of nutrients that nourish your body. They are super high in phytochemicals, vitamin A, carotenoids, vitamin C, folic acid, and fiber. Their unusually high content of vitamin C and manganese explain their growing reputation as an antioxidant vegetable group.
This salad is a perfect way to combine two powerhouse cruciferous vegetables – kale and cauliflower. With a slight heat from the cauliflower to compliment the zestyness of the massaged kale, this salad is definitely a winner! It’s a perfect detox option as it’s quite light, yet super fulling.
