When I want an iced chocolate I want the real deal. Actual chocolate. Made from cacao beans. None of this sugary syrup stuff. And I personally like mine made with almond milk. This iced chocolate as simple as it is, is pretty hard to find. But don’t despair because you can make it for yourself >> healthier, yummier and cheaper.
I could rave about this lettuce all day but I’m going to save that for another post. In saying that it is hands down the best, freshest, crisp lettuce I have ever eaten! One of the many foods that is going to get me through this hot Australian summer.
Now, tempeh. My new favourite thing to incorporate in my diet. My wonderful yoga teacher put me onto it and now I’m hooked. It’s usually made form fermented soybeans, but their are versions of other beans out there. e.g. chickpea or fava beans.
I love the nutty firm texture plus it is high in protein, copper, manganese, riboflavin and niacin ✔✔✔✔✔
Oh it’s good to be back!!! I’m beyond happy to have time to blog again. Uni is done for the year and now the fun begins.
And to top that, I was/am Loving Earths featured foodie for November. I’m still pinching myself because this was a huge goal for me and I’m so happy with the recipes that my brain came up with, and having myself and friends taste test I can guarantee they are delicious. They are all on the Loving Earth website >> Caramelised buckini popsicles, Cookie Slice, Choc, Mandarin tarts, Neapolitan Ice cream cake, Sunday Smoothie. Arghh, I love them all so much but in saying that the popsicles will be found 24/7 in my freezer this summer ☼
This recipe seems appropriate now that spring weather is well and truly here ! Colourful, fresh and healthy. I love just putting in what ever vegetables and beans I have on hand. But I always have to have some guac and salsa to dip it into. Cashew cheese is also a delicious addition, and a glass of kombucha. #summeriscoming
Enjoy these in the sun (with a hat on) this weekend and you’ll be one happy chappy.
These nachos are vegan but can be changed to whatever suits you ! I just love making the veggie to corn chip ratio even, make sure you get veggies with every bit and these will be so much healthier than your typical restaurant nachos.
These sprouts (omg) , and all my veggies are from Farmer Foster at the Helensvale Farmers Markets. I’m in love. I sprinkle them on everything, such a beautiful fresh texture. So if you’re on the Gold Coast make sure to come and get some >> http://www.farmerfoster.com.au
