Chocolate Mousse Nice Cream

The nice cream addiction continues… yep, even in winter. I will sit practically in the fire with a hot water bottle in hand just so I can still enjoy my daily nice cream/smoothie bowl… Totally normal. As we always say we love to add some kind of superfood ingredient to boost the nutritional value of our nice cream/smoothie recipes. This time, …

We’ve included the nutrient-packed superfood maca powder in this recipe for it’s many health benefits – balancing hormones, increasing immunity, boosting energy and focus, just to name a few.

Welcome to #Kalefornia

California, or as it is becoming known, #KALEfornia is an absolute haven for acai-loving, green juice drinking, kale chip eating individuals, such as myself. This was very clear after a short stroll down Union street and Chestnut street in San Fransisco where every second shop was showcasing cold-pressed juices and vegan desserts… I was most definitely in my element. Of …

Tulum Travels

With our limited time in Mexico, we had chosen Tulum (pronounced Teloom), as our first stop and headed there straight from the airport – it is about an hour and 30 minutes drive. The trip itself was underwhelming, not very scenic until we approached Tulum and landscape became more lush.  Arriving at our hotel, Betulum Resort and Spa, was a jaw …

48 hours in Santa Monica

With only a very short time to spend in Los Angeles, we decided we were best to focus our time on really getting to know the area we were staying, Santa Monica, rather than trying to see everything… I had no idea LA was quite so big, and everywhere we put in maps seemed to be at least an hour …

Rainbow Buddha Bowl

What better way to get in some veg. This is one of our most popular savoury dishes, packed with flavour, nutrients and it has that ‘clean’ finish that leaves you feeling nourished and satisfied. We have added Power Superfoods organic nori flakes, a mild tasting seaweed harvested by hand from pristine waters off Canada.  Nori is very low in calories and …

Why we Love Pure Naturally Coconut Oil

For anyone who has our app or has looked at the recipes on our blog, you will notice that coconut oil is a staple ingredient of ours. However, coconut oils can vary greatly from brand to brand depending on the extent of processing they have undergone. One of our favourite brands is Pure Naturally. Aside from the great taste of …

Blueberry Nice Cream

And the nice cream addiction continues. This is yet another three ingredient recipe – perfect for rushed weekday mornings. We of course recommend adding superfood powders to enhance the nutritional profile, but this of course is optional. We have added blue spirulina which contains rare and potent antioxidants, not found in other types of spirulina (which is usually green in colour). It is also …

The Sprout Market Way

“We should stop asking why organic food is so expensive and start asking why junk food is so cheap” One of the reasons most often given for not choosing organic food is the cost.  Whilst we believe the cost to our health when not choosing organic, healthy foods is far greater, we are delighted to see that Sprout Market are addressing …

We have used biodynamic organic eggs however you can substitute with tofu for a vegan alternative or halloumi for an egg-free option.   We recommend serving with toasted sourdough bread, fresh herbs, chilli, a sprinkle of cumin and parmesan cheese. Ingredients 1 tbsp olive oil …

Are we going too far with veganism?

We wrote recently about the shift towards increased demand for gluten free products. Another dietary regime gaining popularity at an exponential rate is the vegan trend. The increased demand for vegan produce is driven largely by an ethical decision to not harm or exploit animals, as well as environmental concerns. We have much to thank the vegan community for in …

Berry Beetroot Nice Cream

It may sound a little strange but trust us, it works. Beetroot powder is a great addition to smoothies and desserts because of its impressive nutrient profile. Aside from being low in calories and fat, beetroots are known for their role in detoxification processes in the liver and the pigment provides important anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds… And it tastes great too! …

Fast Your Way to Wellness: Q&A with Lee Holmes

When we hear the word ‘fast’ we automatically think of deprivation or starvation. Lee Holmes, holistic nutritionist and author of many best selling books, has challenged this perception by promoting the concept of ‘intermittent fasting’. This involves restricting calories for two days a week, allowing the gut to rest and repair. Lee’s balanced approach to wellness, particularly her belief that we should eat foods as close to …

Best spots for (almond milk) coffee in Sydney’s East

For any fellow almond milk coffee drinkers, you will know what I mean when I say that not all almond milks were made equal. I have only recently jumped on board the coffee bandwagon (before which I was a strictly green tea kind of gal) but it is surprising how quickly coffee has become a part of my daily routine, …

Guacamole

A simple yet very essential recipe. We love serving guacamole as a starter or snack with organic quinoa tortilla chips and/or vegetable sticks. It is also great with our walnut bolognese (recipe in the salads and sides category), our sweet corn and spinach waffles (recipe in breakfast) or as a dip with our cumin kumera chips. Aside from being delicious, …

Best healthy cafes in Sydney

As much as we love creating healthy recipes and knowing exactly what is going into our food, sometimes it is nice to sit back and have someone else prepare the food for you. We love that there are now so many healthy cafes/restaurants in Sydney striving to use local, organic and seasonal produce as much as possible. In saying that, …

Tropical Berry Nice Cream

Nice cream is a summer essential. It is the perfect alternative to ice cream with that creamy texture we all love, just without any of the added sugars, flavours and preservatives. The pineapple gives this nice cream a tropical and refreshing twist but if you prefer a more traditional strawberry flavour simply add 1 extra banana and omit pineapple. This recipe is …
