Raw Cacao and Avocado Smoothie

Still on mood foods this week. I don’t know about you but it has been an up and down week for me. When feeling the blues one of the better foods to reach for is raw cacao. This recipe is essentially a smoothie but if you put less liquid in you can eat it as a mousse.

To Cleanse or not to Cleanse, that is the question

I ran out of time this week to write the blog I had planned so diverting a little to tell you about my story with cleansing. Who fasts here? Who goes on a cleanse? Who is like me and never fasted in their lives? I have to admit to you all that I don't believe in fasting, it's just not for me. I can easily get low blood sugar and low blood pressure so that's always been a great excuse for not fasting. I also feel that if I eat incredibly healthy the bulk of the time why would I need to fast.

The Super Food of Super Foods (and it grows right here in Australia)

I can't stop raving about hemp seeds and I only discovered them a couple of years ago. A big bag accompanies me on any retreat I cater for and I am known to take them with me when I go away. In my eyes hemp seeds are really the super food of super foods as they are a complete protein. Along with soy beans and bea pollen they are the only complete protein in a plant based diet. In simple terms eating hemp seeds is like eating a piece of steak. Hemp seeds contain all nine essential amino acids which classifies it as a complete protein.
