Raw maca, ginger and goji macaroons

These super maca-macaroons come courtesy of my lovely yogi friend Atty who lives in Berkeley and knows a good raw food recipe when she sees one. You will be amazed at how quick and easy they are to throw together and how insanely good the sweet maple, salty-sweet berries and […]

The best almond milk

Almond milk is the best. I was raised on full fat cow’s milk and have always craved its rich creamy texture in a dairyless alternative. I like to play around with other bases – cashew, rice, sesame and lately a bit of hemp – but almond is my king nut. […]

This impromptu creation that I once thew together based on what was in the kitchen has fast become a quick, easy and protein packed brunchtime favourite.

The rich salmon, crunchy quinoa and sesame and fresh Asian flavours all come together to make a really fulfilling and nourishing meal, high in protein and healthy oils. And despite the […]

Gluten-free banana bread bites

A good banana bread is one of life’s greatest treats and until now I haven’t found a satisfactory gluten and dairy free recipe for those of us that way inclined. But while wandering through Wholefoods deciding on my lunch a couple of weeks ago I saw a yummy looking free-from […]

Porridge and I go way back. It was the first thing I ever learned to make and when I was a child I used to bound out of bed on the weekend and quietly whip some up in the kitchen just as my granny taught me: with rolled oats, a pinch […]
