Palak and Lentil Balls

  • 27 February 2017

How has your week been? We went camping last week. It is the only thing I know that really gets me to relax and the absence of Wi-Fi makes it even more relaxing. I took along dinners that had already been frozen so the only prep I had to do was to reheat the dinners and make a salad for lunch. It was super luxurious.

  • 20 February 2017

Yahoo finally I am announcing the new dates for The Vegan Chef and Lifestyle Training happening later this year. All the dates are below the recipe for the very creamy zucchini slice. Don’t miss out on attending some or all of the training as I will not be offering this training in the first half of 2018. So for those of you who are waiting for next year now is the time to jump and do it in 2017...


A Salad Recipe Packed with Complete Protein

  • 03 February 2017

How often do you eat salad? Is it just a summer time food for you or are you like me and need a salad no matter what the weather holds. I always have a salad every lunch even throughout winter and then something more cooked for dinner. However recently I have been enjoying these balmy summer nights eating a deliciously prepared salad. The other night we opted for a cooked salad with lots of...


Zucchini Carrot Soup with Cashew Sour Cream

  • 25 January 2017

It was hot yesterday and guess what I felt the need to cook? Soup of course. This soup recipe does really taste good even on a hot summer’s day. Thin it with more water and add more salt for a lighter soup. It’s filled with iron (thyme and parsley), vitamin C (thyme, parsley and carrot) calcium (zucchini) and protein (cashews and zucchini). Sprinkle on some seeds to make a complete protein.


The Best Ever Sweet Treat

  • 11 January 2017

Each year I am fortunate enough to spend a few weeks in The Osho International Meditation Resort in Pune India. This last visit came a month earlier than usual and is a visit I will remember forever. With very few friends visiting at the time of my stay I was able to really immerse myself in the many revolutionary meditation techniques Osho has developed. My days were spent in the meditation...


No resolutions for me, only celebrations (mocktails to celebrate every day of the year)

  • 05 January 2017

How is the new year shaping up for you five days in? For me lots of relaxation and fun with my parents, what a great start. Many ask me what resolutions I have made for 2017 and the answer is none. 


Who likes pancakes for breakfast?

  • 22 December 2016

These pancakes were a treat for us a few Sunday mornings ago so it feels more than decadent to be having them again, but what the heck, I’m on holiday. I actually teach this recipe in the foundation module of the training so this is a treat for you to get this recipe now.


Tips for Vegans and Vegetarians at Christmas

  • 19 December 2016

For me this has always been a difficult time of year being forced to attend events where people chow down on big bits of animal parts. Even at a so called vegetarian gathering some years ago I was gob smacked when I saw a dead chicken on the table. So I have taken the cowards way out and stay home with my beloved on Christmas day. If friends do want to catch up I offer them to come to ours and...


Korma Comedian Curry, Green Thai Fritters & Chilli Thai Salad

  • 07 December 2016

As you read this post I will be in India and by now smelling of turmeric, fenugreek and curry spices in general. My life without India, Indian food and meditation would be quite difficult to live. This year’s visit to the Osho International Meditation Resort in Pune India has come around earlier. After an intensely busy year I could not wait until the usual January 1st pilgrimage.
