Easy Warming Vegetable Stew

With winter in full swing, warmth is the name of the game. I’m sure you all know I have an absolute LOVE for Raw foods, however, eating according to the season wins on all fronts, and in the cooler months I naturally find warm dishes, use of heating spices (on that note – have […]

Raw Ginger Slice

Good old Ginger Slice/Crunch is as Kiwi as it gets. I grew up eating Nana’s spicy, crunchy, sweet rendition, and was just thinking of her the other day. She had a funny old habit of punching you hard in the arm while she talked. Famous in our family for her ginger slice, raisin squares, plum […]

Homemade Masala Chai (dairy, sugar and caffeine free)

One of my biggest obsessions is brewing up a nice big bubbling, aromatic pot of herbs and spices to make a delicious and healing chai tea. Nothing gives me more pleasure than standing over my pot with my wooden spoon, poking away at the various pods, leaves, barks and seeds bobbing at the surface, just […]

The Perfect Bircher (Vegan)

I made up a word – Supersessibles. Accessible super foods. Because whilst all those exotic foods, powders, berries and spices that line the health food store shelves are alluring with their long list of nutritional claims (and to be fair, some of them are actually quite worthwhile taking!), the hefty price tag makes it something […]

Coconut Rough

Rainy Saturday mornings are my favourite. Hot chai. Blankets. Paper. The perfect end to a busy week. I have an easy recipe to share today – a somewhat hybridised Coconut Rough. Rather than your traditional chocolate-coconut combination, I’ve thrown in some organic fine oats (with great success!). I’ve been loving my oats recently – three […]

Perfectionism, and a Raw Feijoa + Kiwifruit Cake for Mother’s Day

I have a confession to make: I am currently suffering from a chronic case of perfectionism. And until I can work through it and move past it, all I can do is lay it on the table and say I’m stuck in a sticky web of my own doing. You see, I’ve been trying to […]

Healthy ANZAC Biscuits – Sugar Free

It seems fitting to make some yummy ANZAC biscuits for this year’s ANZAC Centenary on April 25th. I’m hoping to make it to the Dawn service this year too, to pay respects to all our Kiwi and Aussie soldiers who fought and died in Gallipoli. I remember our dear old Uncle Reg, and all his […]

Homemade Comfrey Ointment for Bruises, Bumps and Scrapes Part 2

About 6 weeks ago I prepared a herbal infused oil, with organic olive oil and dried comfrey leaf and root. Today, I’m sharing how to turn that lovely, rich green infused oil into a healing, antibacterial, antiseptic salve to keep in your home apothecary. Health and wellness extends far beyond the diet, so I love […]
