JUST in time for 4th July, I lovingly share my latest gluten free, plant-based recipe 🌱 If you saw insta stories earlier today, you’d know the key ingredient within these fluffy, moist muffins is EGGPLANT (‘aubergine’ in Brit-speak)
Before you turn away in disgust (I see you!) give me a few insta secs to explain why I used this not-so-popular veggie…beyond the fact my husband detests it which creates a fire of desire to convert his disdain into admiration!

- Amy used Matcha Gold from Lalani and Co, but just use the highest quality you can afford.

Whether you have a dehydrator or not, you can Continue Reading…

SUPER simple to make, this parfait is made using plant-based gelatine called ‘AGAR’, a minimally processed ingredient I use in sweet parfaits like this one because I Continue Reading…
If you told me 5 years ago I’d be juicing fresh ginger on a Sunday before enjoying an hour-long meditation session, followed by working on my Hay Houseinc book in a bath full of magnesium flakes, I’d have given you a VERY funny look!
But these days, this is what floats my boat! It’s just a small snapshot of what I love to do in the name of Continue Reading…
