BLACK BEAN CHOCOLATE CAKE

I’m not really the type of person to pass on a piece of cake– the saying doesn’t exist for nothing, and I don’t think I’m alone in admitting that eating a piece of cake is a really easy (and delightful) feat. Cake is synonymous with indulgence and let’s face it, there’s something about being a little bit naughty that makes …

SALUTARY SAMOSAS

Who would have thought that a healthy version of a typically fried-in-vegetable-oil snack could exist (unless you’ve already seen this one). My inspiration for this recipe comes yet again from the first inventor of a healthy samosa (to my knowledge) and my ultimate idol Sarah B. of My New Roots. I received her very inspired cookbook as a Birthday gift from …

Now that the weather is warming up, who wants to use their oven? Spring and Summer are all about easy-to-make snacks you can store in the fridge or pantry, grab, go and enjoy. There’s honestly nothing easier than energy bars/protein balls/bliss balls… whatever you want to call them. Simply throw your nuts, seeds, dried fruit and various flavorings into a …

Kate Breakfast, Raw, Recipes, Simple, Snack, Spring, Summer, Sweet, Vegan Leave a Comment

Aside from feeling either hot or cold, the seasons also dictate how we should spend our time and what we eat. During Autumn and Winter we spend more time indoors, resting and enjoying slow-cooked warm foods, and during Spring and Summer, we gravitate towards spending more time outdoors, enjoying the sun and we crave raw, watery and hydrating foods. When it’s …

On Easter, Christmas, Birthdays, and special events within my family, I was always asked to bring rice paper rolls– everybody loved them, but nobody could be bothered rolling them. I quite like the repetition and simplicity of the task, plus it’s a great opportunity to sit down, get into it, relax and catch up on a podcast. I’m obsessed with …

KALE CHIPS WITH LEMONGRASS AND LIME

These kale chips are such a delicious snack that they’re sure to impress any doubtful, chip-loving friend. Salty and crispy in their own right, they’re not a direct replacement for Smiths or Doritos, but they’re equally as addictive and less finger-staining. The trick to mastering a good kale chip, is to massage the dressing into the raw kale really, really well …

There’s nothing better than Darrell Lea rocky road…. That perfect combination of crunchy and salty peanuts, fluffy marshmallow and toasted coconut got me every time. Trying to replicate this perfect model proved impossible, because how can you make or find a vegan marshmallow without refined sugar, gelatine or egg whites? They say when you can’t beat em’ join em’, so I’ve …

Natural and herbal medicine get a bad rap in the Western world, though much like Western medicine itself, everything has its place. Pharmaceutical companies release drugs for every ailment under the sun and run clinical trials for a few years to test their efficacy, until they’re eventually shared and sold. Natural and herbal medicine concerns plants, herbs and weeds, and …
