Warming Beetroot Carrot and Ginger Juice

It’s getting really chilly here down in the depths of the Southern Hemisphere, so this week on the blog I’ve decided to share a fresh vegetable juice recipe. This warming carrot, ginger and beetroot juice is just what you need to stay on-top of your health and to limit any nasty colds and flu’s.

As the colder months approach, I tend to crave more warming, dense, comfort foods. Through winter, a great way to remain healthy (as well as staying balanced and happy) is to load up on freshly juiced vegetables and fruits.  Continue reading

Ginger & Apple Granola

I love the taste of ginger, especially when it’s mixed with cinnamon. Ginger is such a great digestion aid, so it’s perfect to get this in your belly at the beginning of the day. Continue reading

Avocado a La Creme Dressing

In the early days of my lifestyle shift, I completely disregarded salad dressings. With every salad that was order on a dinner out, my request would always be “No dressing, please”.  Most of the salads at restaurants were drenched in oily, tasteless dressings that were (most probably) laden with sugar, preservatives and who knows what other additives. My salads that I’d make at home would either be naked, or drizzled with fresh lemon or orange juice, but never a full on salad dressing. Lately, however, I have been more adventurous, and have been experimenting with dressings and sauces, and balancing the flavors allowing them to complement a dish, rather than over power it.

This dressing is too delicious. I love it’s elegance, and how it instantly smartens up and dish. Just like dressing up an outfit with a smart blazer, or changing flat shoes for heels, just adds a bit of schjusch, this dressing will add a bit of ‘posh-to-your-nosh’. Continue reading
