COCONUT CACAO SMOOTHIE

I was craving an iced coffee, but it was 2.30pm and if I have caffeine after 12pm, there’s not chance I’ll be able to sleep that night!  Richard, my lovely husband, suggested a drink with cacao powder – therefore the Coconut Cocao Smoothie was born!  It is heavenly and really healthy!  The Cacao powder is…

BANTING FOR VEGETARIANS AND VEGANS

I didn’t even know if this was possible, but I have been thinking about the Banting program and all it has to offer and wondered if it was maybe a bit limiting!  I know so many people who chose the Vegetarian or Vegan lifestyle due to their absolute love and devotion to animals.  I have…

MISO COD WITH ZUCCHINI NOODLES

This recipe is easy, simple and highly nutritious!  Love the saltiness of the miso, mixed with the sweet and sour flavours.  It’s always a big hit and this cod has made it on to the Black Egg (Asia’s version of the Green Egg), where it is smoked – it takes this cod to a whole another level!! I…

VEGETARIANS AND VEGANS….DON’T LOOK NOW!!!
