Ok…. So Bareburger has become a firm favourite of my beloved’s and mine – it’s the perfect food to nourish our bodies after working all day long on some very exciting projects! 💫🙏🏻 All food is organically grown and clean as clean can be 👌🏻 Aside from the actual food-food, I love their condiments: ketchup and yellow mustard – both made with Continue Reading…

SHUGUH! 🌟 Not as bad as you would think – yes, I still think the highly processed white stuff is the devil 😈 but I since becoming a Natural Foods Chef, I have learnt SO many new things about other, natural varieties you can use to sweeten it up! Bottom line: keep it real, raw and organic. And try to use it in minimal amounts ’cause you’re sweet enough already!!

Some of my fav ‘shuguhs’ to use include: 100% organic maple crystals, coconut crystals, organic brown sugar: I avoid anything white or highly processed, made from weird stuff that doesn’t seem ‘right’. Go with your gut – you know what works for you and what doesn’t! 😘

Does anyone else read during breakfast? I feel like books feed me as much a food…a side dish to my smoothie bowl! 📚🍴 Re-visiting an oldie but a goodie today, a must-have book for any bookshelf 👌🏻 In fact, anything Dr Christiane Northrup has written is a must-have…I cannot begin to tell you how much I have learnt about myself and my body thanks to her 🙏🏻🙌🏻

Here’s just one pearl of wisdom from this book that really resonates with me…. Continue Reading…

Bravo goes to Chef Pete Evans for speaking up about sunscreen not being ‘all that’ 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Once again, I read Pete’s copped criticism, mostly half-hearted news items with poor punctuation and misinformation 😴💤 I find it quite comical to be honest, when the major news channels blow information out of proportion…but it also does concern me when I see so many people believing what they read/hear/see in the media, what the?

Healthy Noodle Alternative: Beancurd

July 17, 2016

Beancurd noodles… 🙏🏻 Nothing but organic soybean and water was used to create this delicious noodle substitute 👌🏻 Soy beans (the organic kind) provide the body with great protein and nutrients – gluten, sugar and preservative free – definitely a must-try of you want noodles without a side of bloating and digestive discomfort often caused by preservatives and gluten added to traditional pasta or cous cous.
I like to pair these noodles with freshly steamed broccoli, cauliflower and peas + a little full fat coconut milk mixed with turmeric, garlic and cumin powder for a savoury, health supportive, tasty meal 🌟🌱👌🏻

Easy Whole Foods Breakfast

July 16, 2016
chef shine

It’s a late n’ lazy breakfast for my beloved and I today… More of a brunch situation to be honest, starting with some sautéed butternut squash noodles and beetroot cous cous 💗 I then added some steamed organic broccoli for a good dose of plant protein 👌🏻 I’ll top this off with some roasted pumpkin seeds (for an extra dose of plant protein) with lashings of avocado oil – because without healthy fats, our bodies won’t be able to absorb and assimilate all the plant-based, nutrient-rich goodness: healthy fats are your friends!
