It’s 40 days until our holiday back to South Africa, and I am so excited! Not only am I looking forward to seeing my family and friends, I’m really excited about all the foodie related things about visiting my home country. I’m super keen to visit the new cafes that have popped up since I left in 2014, and can’t wait to munch on all the fruit that you can’t get here in New Zealand.
So while my mind is inundated with excitement, I managed to create this delicious Vegan Lemon Coconut Cake recipe that turned out so well. It’s gluten free, low in carbs, high in healthy fats, full of flavor and is 100% vegan. Continue reading

The health and wellness sphere can be quite confusing at times. It’s incredibly easy to get caught up in the latest fad, and jumping in full steam ahead can be at times more detrimental than beneficial. With so many influencers out there, the pressure of doing what’s right for you can seem all too much to cope with.
It’s in these regards that I always come back to and promote intuitive eating. Yes, this may include experimenting with certain foods and ways of eating, but ultimately it’s finding what feels good and what makes you happy and full of energy. These Chocolate Nut & Seed Clusters are a perfect example of a delicious and nutritious treat, that will leave you feeling great and satisfied. Continue reading

Initially the whole idea seemed a little out of balance to me. However having done more research into this way of eating (and feeling some the benefits), I’ve been pleasantly surprised.
This Chia & Flax Seed Breakfast Bowl has been my go to breakfast option while testing out this new way of eating. It’s quick, fulling and so easy to make, not to mention versatile in that you can have it cold or warm. Continue reading
The thing with healthy eating is to be prepared. One way to be prepared is having loads of snacks and healthy treats available to avoid yourself from caving in to unhealthy temptations. That’s why I like to always have ‘ready made’ snacks and treats on hand, to curb those cravings and satisfy them with a healthy alternative that, at the same time, is nourishing my body.
These Raspberry and Tahini Puffed Millet Squares are such a quick snack/treat option that literally are made in one bowl, popped into the freezer overnight to set and that’s it! Slice them into squares once frozen, pop them into a lunchbox, and you have yourself a healthy treat or snack to satisfy any lurking cravings or hunger pangs. Continue reading
While there is much speculation around the whole ‘soy’ topic, and the fact that genetically modified soy beans are penetrating more and more of the global soy markets, there are still loads of health benefits in fermented soy products. Containing less anti-nutrients, fermented soy products, like Miso, have an array of nutritional benefits and can have a positive effect on so many bodily systems.
This Tofu Miso Soup recipe is an example of how fermented soy products can be incredibly delicious, along with reaching high points on the nutrition scale. It is 100% plant based and is seriously such a quick and easy delicious meal that can be thrown together in no time at all. Continue reading
