Omega Protein Porridge Bowls with Turmeric + Hemp

  Anyone who has followed my journey for some years will know that a good intelligently-populated porridge is a key part of living well for me and my family. And by populated, I mean a bowl filled with variety and nourishment that is a far cry from the oats, water, […]

Turmeric, lemon and ginger chia pots

It has been a while since I shared in this online space. There are many reasons but one primary: motherhood – and the immense limitations it puts on one’s spare time; added to that, a (sleep-deprived) struggle for daily structure and a deep and ongoing dive within as this journey […]

Blueberry and quinoa muffins

With the rhythm of city life as busy as it is, I always latch hopefully on to clever butters, bars and wholefood conconctions that purport to have it all in one… and this latest creation does just that – it is the most super and delicious little paste to have in your kitchen, on hand to help […]

Buckwheat quinoa pancakes with goji berry jam

Pancakes always represent such a treat for me. Maybe because when I was little they were what we ate at restaurants, diners and other awesome places but never at home. Or maybe because they seem to me to be a symbol of mighty America in all its maple bacon glory. […]

Raw carrot and cinnamon bircher muesli
