Pregnancy natural beauty heroes

Aside from the deep and ongoing inner transformation that the pregnancy journey ignites, the physical self is also something of an evolving being – and this can feel both beautiful and unnerving at times, to find our bodies in a state of constant flux and change, at such a fast pace, with […]

Coconut and cardamom bounty balls

I promise I will post a savoury recipe soon, but as my 38th week of pregnancy approaches and calories are in high demand, it’s hard not to focus on the infinite rainbow of delectable healthy sweet treats that occupy my mind and days in the kitchen. And they usually involve cacao. […]

Christmas chocolate truffles

These raw chocolate truffles are a delight to make and bursting with the warming flavours of December and all the excitement it brings. I remember creating the recipe for my book during the hot summer months and longing for advent to be upon us so I could taste them in their […]

Last of summer strawberry salad 

This summer we have had a love affair with strawberries that surely cannot be rivalled. Our local store gets in the biggest, reddest, juiciest ones and I just couldn’t get enough. Never has fruit held so much juicy joy and goodness for me as in these first months of pregnancy, […]

The perfect cacao shot

My ever deepening love of cacao is no secret. In a ceremony, a chocolate bar, or just as crunchy nibs and beans, the plant is one of my favourite allies and the love goes far beyond mere chocoholism. This adoration and respect was recently compounded by our third trip to […]

Raw tahini caramel squares

Wow June has been busy! Somewhere in between getting married and embarking on the next leg of our honeymoon in Greece I have stolen a minute to share these insanely good raw caramel squares with you because they came to me in the moment I needed them most and I’m […]

Tigernut cacao energy balls

Yesterday around about tea time, ploughing away on the computer, I had a major snack attack; since it was thundering outside I turned to my kitchen cupboards for some instant energy and inspiration. These are what happened and they didn’t hang around long. The main component is tigernut flour: a […]

Raw zucchini pasta + red pepper pesto

As summer hovers near and the optimistic spring sun creeps out from behind the clouds, lighter dinners and fresh local veg become increasingly called for on bright garden evenings. And when time (and funds) might be in short suppluly, nothing hits the spot more perfectly than this modern riff on […]
