The past few months have been kind of intense - between work, studying for final exams for 2nd year of naturopathy school, writing a final paper and dealing with relationship stuff, I've barely been keeping my head above water. It's always in busy and stressful times when it's all too easy to...Read More

Day 6. Nearly there! I went to bed super late last night as was up writing Day 5's post till 2am (!) Woke up naturally at 7am and figured since I was up, I might as well pop something in the dehydrator, so it could be ready for lunch later.

Day 5. Weekend!! :) 9.20am: Hot water + juice from 1/2 lemon.
My guy pointed out that "hot water isn't raw". OK. So it's not 40-something degrees Celsius and under. But it's a good wake up for the body and flush through my system - giving the digestive system a nice kickstart.Read More

I've been reading Dr. Gabriel Cousens' "Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine" classic book on raw food, and he talks about...Read More
I'm a sucker for brunch of any kind. The Full English (the veggie version, of course), Huevos Rancheros, French toast, I'll even do Vegemite on toast but with jam, to take the edge off. And of course PANCAKES!!! are no exception. Living in Amsterdam, pancakes are pretty much a Dutch obsession. The best ones they do are the poffertjes...Read More
My BFF from childhood is addicted to Coconut Manna. I reckon it probably ranks as one of the most suspicious is-it-good-for-you-or-is-it-not products on earth. All the ingredients label says is "Organic whole coconut". And the label description says "Coconut Manna™ is a delicious whole food made of pure, dried coconut flesh. This tropical 'melt in your mouth' treat contains 12% fiber, 9% protein and nourishing fats." (™ symbol and bold words are exactly as they are on the label. Haha.)...Read More
