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

This afternoon at work, there was a lot of talk about mushroom burgers. Like, A LOT. To the point where when I left work, I was CRAVING a mushroom burger. I'd already planned out what I was gonna make, how I was gonna make it, and how heavenly it was gonna taste. Of course I mistakenly thought I still had mushrooms in the fridge. So imagine my dismay when I came home to find NO MUSHROOMS in there. Ugh...Read More
Last week, I was in Warsaw, Poland on a shoot for work. It terrifies me whenever I have to go to Eastern Europe, as their "vegetarian" options are always... well... "vegetarian". It's almost always some form of potatoes with some other stodgy root veggie. Mashed potato, boiled potato, potato dumplings... In Poland, even the drink of choice, vodka, is made with... POTATOES!! It's like Bubba Gump rattling off...Read More

It becomes way less appetising with all that sugar, milk powder and unpronounceable chemicals. So I figured I'd make my own out of home-made nut butter and raw cacao nibs. What could go wrong. ...Right?
Turns out this is pretty easy...Read More
I've been playing around with adding more fruit to my morning smoothies instead of green veggies. If you're not too concerned about your sugar levels, go for it! I guess the whole point of why I've been doing green smoothie breakfasts is coz I know I probably eat way too much sugar throughout the day, so I've been trying to cut down on sugar at least during the first meal of the day. Instead of going ALL-OUT-FRUIT-SMOOTHIE!! I'm trying a combo of...Read More
I've been playing around with how to get smoothies thicker and creamier without using any dairy or non-dairy milk. It just feels weird to add anything processed into an attempted wholesome start to my day... and yeah, your dairy milk has been through pasteurisation/ homogenisation and goodness knows what else... It's pretty much just white liquid, really. And though I use rice milk, I look at the ingredients list and sometimes wonder whether...Read More
