Putting my new coconut bowl to the test, filling it with one of my fav b’fast smoothies I make when I feel like a sweet start to the day. Try this the next time you crave processed, crappy sweet stuff, it will satisfy you in the most health-supportive, poop-tastic way 💩
I used wild blueberries, gifted to me by a friend who likes to forage for his food – they’re slightly darker in colour which is why this smoothie looks a little grey. I heart berries SO much – they have many beautifying benefits for your Continue Reading…
Did you know one can of orange soda ‘Fanta’ houses:
23g of processed sugar (the crappy, chemically-treated type of sugar)
Stuff called: ‘Natural Orange Flavourings with Other Natural Flavourings’ ❓
Acesulfame K – an artificial sweetener found in sugar-free gum, alcohol, candy & sweet yoghurts. Its main chemical component, ‘methylene chloride’ may cause nausea, mood disorders, possibly some types of cancer, impaired liver & kidney function, eyesight issues & even perhaps autism.
First morning in LA after a day of traveling, uber-ing & sorting out an air bnb – I’m a creature who favors homes over hotels because: kitchen!! If you caught my insta stories, the first thing I did after arriving in LA was head straight to the closest grocer to stock up on REAL foods & ingredients 👌🏻
One of the many delicious real foods I found was Continue Reading…
Up, up & away I go… Off to Arizona for Mind Body Green #mbgrevitalize event – a gathering like no other, where the latest in health & wellness is showcased & experienced. The cool thing about this event? YOU can take part too! Tune in via the mbg website + my Insta stories over the weekend.
As always, here’s a selection of stuff I’m taking en route…
- Assortment of crystals to keep my energy clear (laboradite), protected (shungite) and calm (amethyst)
- Dr Bronners peppermint liquid hand soap + antibacterial spray. Both house all-real ingredients that won’t affect my skin’s natural PH levels
- Colloidal silver spray to disinfect & keep nasty bacteria out of my zone. I spray my chair, arm rests, TV screen, remote control – anything I touch during the flight
- Fern Olivia’s Ajai oil – a girl can never travel with too many hydrating, sensual oils!
- Naturopathica custom oil blend I created – a mix of organic rose otto, sandalwood, roman chamomile & jasmine
- Sunroot Erbology dried organic jerusalem artichoke crisps for a good dose of prebiotic fibre
- Crystal deodorant – I’m forever searching for great aluminium-free, crap-free natural deodorants (other than the one I make myself).
- Purse with palo santo wood to burn & cleanse my hotel room.
- Rayban sunnies because: BEST in eyewear protection
After a delightful afternoon spent with Julie Montagu and her AMAZING superfood creations we demo’d during our fun facebook live yesterday (did you tune in?) I was feeling inspired to create something new! Which is why I ventured to Chinatown last night to pick up two cans of jackfruit, one the most versatile fruits I know!
I love playing with this ingredient (pictured ‘in the raw’ if you swipe left above) because there are so many sweet and savoury Continue Reading…
Oh happy day! I’m headed out to meet a girlfriend this morning in @centralparknewyork. We’re going to take a nature bath, strolling amongst the trees before visiting her local fresh food markets to stock up on some real food provisions.
Before I head off, breakfast today for me n’ my beloved @benjaminshinestudio is toasted chunks of my yummy Continue Reading…
Brussel sprout haters, LISTEN UP! This dish was just given the thumbs up by a VERY picky eater! Last year, I was enlisted by a private client to create delicious, nutritious meals using “anything but green vegetables.” When I delved further (because: WTF – ‘what the food?’) I was told her seven-year-old son had a strong aversion to foods coloured green
Long story short, no matter what she tried over the years (even dying broccoli & celery purple!) he wouldn’t swallow a morsel 🙅🏾♂️ Out of sheer desperation, she began looking for someone to help – enter ME! So far, in the last 2 months, this little boy has embraced: zucchini, broccoli, celery & spinach. Today, however, was the BEST DAY EVER because I just got the call to say he Continue Reading…
Question: do you ever have days where you go at break-neck speed to get it all done, then realise it’s WAY later in the day than you thought it was?
That was my day today!
After a wonderfully restorative yoga class and catch up with my girlfriend Caroline, followed by helping my beloved move into his new art studio, I arrived home feeling SO tired!
That’s when I realised I’d been running on empty for hours, whoops!
Practising what I preach, I quickly pulled together a yummy stir fry using leftovers and fresh veggies I got from Union Square Green Market yesterday.
The point of this post? Continue Reading…
