Ginger Power Detox Juice

I’ve noticed that whenever I drink fresh, organic vegetable juice my energy levels go through the ceiling. I feel energised and vibrant; so much so, that I’ve incorporated vegetable juicing into my weekly rhythm as a general health and wellness tonic. Juicing fresh vegetables, herbs and spices like ginger, can be an excellent way to reset your system and cleanse. It’s perfect to help yourself recover from illness and disease.…

No-Bake Vegan Carrot Cake by Trinity (Gluten-Free Too!)

Raw carrot cake slice by Trinity Bourne

It seems like an eternity since I made my first raw carrot cake, some 15 years ago. A small group (4 of us) formed the ‘Raw Pudding Club’ – we’d gather before lunch, all bringing the most delicious raw desserts (with an occasional salad on the side 😉 ). We’d spend 12 hours straight indulging, chatting, learning, laughing, crying and inspiring one another with anything from food to optimal health…

Creamy Vegan Cauliflower Coconut Sauce

When most people think of creamy sauces, they usually imagine dairy milk, yoghurt or cream as an essential ingredient for a lip-lickin’, smooth buttery result. Seldom do people imagine… erm, cauliflower! Having eaten a plant-based diet for the best part of 20 years, I’ve developed a real passion for finding out what new dishes I can whip of from the most random vegetables. It turns out that cauliflower, especially when…

With growing awareness of health and wellness it has rapidly gained popularity in other parts of the world too, (especially in our house!). In addition to regular hummus ingredients, my variation of the traditional version, brings in the tantalising sweetness of roasted sweet pepper. It gives an awesome combination of beneficial nutrients too… Sesame seeds (pureed –…

Guacamole – A Perfect Healthy Vegan Snack

Guacamole is thought to have originated in Aztec, Mexico, evolving from whatever was available locally. Most people I know adore the rich, fatty, creaminess of avocado and feel delighted to see it show up at meal times.

Summer Garden Berry Smoothie

vegan summer garden berry smoothie

There’s something deeply satisfying about the vibrant sweetness of a summer garden berry smoothie, especially with fruit freshly gathered from your own raspberry and strawberry plants (if you are fortunate enough to grow your own that is). For years, my soft fruit crops never seemed to yield enough to allow me to bring any back to the kitchen, because I’d devour them straight off the plant! These days, I feel…
