Chocolate Caramel Tart with Shortbread Crust (Gluten-Free + Vegan)

Choc Caramel Tart

Christmas and the New Year are fast approaching, and I’ve only got two things on my mind: planning big, huge amazing things for 2015 and clearing out, cleaning up and organising to go into the new year with a clean slate.

I can’t wait to tell you all about what I’ve got planned for the next year (BIG news), but you’ll have to wait a bit longer for that. Read the rest of this post »

I hope your in the summer part of the world, because I want you to get this in your belly ASAP! If not, you’ll have to cry in your pumpkin pie and save the recipe for in 6 months time.

This salsa is definitely going to be on my Christmas menu, and I’ll probably end up making it for both lunch and dinner!

Anyone else getting excited about Chrissy?! I love spending the whole day with my family – and we don’t have Thanksgiving here so I’m not sick of them yet. Read the rest of this post »

5 Tips for Planning a Stress-Free Vedge Christmas Menu

LOTV

I’ve always found the secret to a successful Christmas (or any other dinner party) is to be extremely organised. Lists are your friend!

I’ve had quite a few veggie Christmas’ now and have a few rules that I live by. Don’t make anything too ‘weird’ and ‘healthy’, or anything too vegan (eg plain tofu). Let other people eat and bring whatever food they want, and be accepting of everyones choices. 

Christmas is a fun time to spend with family, not a veg vs meat war zone. Read the rest of this post »

Household cleaning is perhaps one of the more obvious areas (when you’ve already got your eyes open to the chemical craziness) – you’re touching and smelling them. Read the rest of this post »

Claire BakerClaire Baker is a beautiful shining light in the health and wellness community. One of my favourite things about her is she is not about eating the ‘perfect’ diet, she’s about living a fun, playful, radiant life – and if that means eating cheese and wine every now and then, then she’s doing it!

The Ultimate Guide to Coffee Enemas

Guide to Coffee Enemas

Ah, the coffee enema.

If you want a good giggle, just tell someone that you do coffee enemas every day and enjoy the confusion-mixed-with-disgust look on their face that follows!

Actually, I was exactly the same when I first learned about coffee enemas. I thought they were just not for me, and not something I could ever bring myself to do. I got a little nervous pit in my stomach when I thought about doing one.

I knew they were beneficial, but there was no way you were getting me to put that tube up my butt. Read the rest of this post »

Healing Garlic & Parsely Potato Salad (GF, Vegan, Gerson)

Potato Salad

This is just one of the many, many ways that I eat potato. Since I am having them at every meal I have to get creative! But really I usually end up doing this same potato/garlic/parsley/flax oil combo, because it’s so yum and easy. I promise I’ll try harder!

Every ingredient in this recipe is incredibly nutritious and healing. Here’s why:

Potatoes:

Potatoes play a very important role in the Gerson diet. Despite the bad rap they’ve gotten, potatoes are actually incredibly nutritious.  Read the rest of this post »

I think this is my first official Gerson recipe on the blog! What took me so long?!

I’ve been doing the Gerson therapy for almost 3 months now and I am feeling amazing. Like a different person. I can’t wait to see the changes over the next few months (and hoping that I will be allowed a cheat day to enjoy Christmas!).

This recipe is simple, it tastes amazing, and when you’re eating as many baked potatoes as I am, its Godsend of a potato topper. Read the rest of this post »

awesomereads800

It’s official: I’m now a bookworm. And I have the cool-nerdy glasses to prove it.

I am smashing through books so fast lately that I’m doing about 2 books per week. I am pretty impressed with myself.

I have a little bit of a reading routine happening. During my morning coffee enema I read a business or non-fiction book to get my brain pumping for the day. Then late afternoon enema is either non-fiction or fiction, whatever book I’m more into. Read the rest of this post »
