Oats. So soothing, warming and simple. 
"Oats are rich in a specific type of fiber called beta-glucan. This particular type of fiber is known to help lower levels of bad cholesterol. Minerals - oats contain manganese, selenium, phosphorus, fiber, magnesium, and zinc. Oats are also rich in carotenoids, tocols (Vitamin E), flavonoids and avenanthramides - a class of polyphenols. Oats are also known to be very calming and soothing."
I made mine with Rude Health’s steel cut oats, almond milk, saffron, cardamom seeds, cinnamon, maple syrup and later added in raw activated (pre soaked) pecans. Yum yum yummy x

"Meg Jay hopes to motivate a generation of twenty-somethings who have repeatedly been told they have plenty of time to figure out their lives. On the contrary, Jay sites statistics about career growth, relationship development and reproductive capabilities that all emphasize the importance of our 20s as a formative period that sets the trajectory for the rest of our lives." - TED talks

"I was recently told of an African tribe that does the most beautiful thing.

When someone does something hurtful and wrong, they take the person to the center of town, and the entire tribe comes and surrounds him. For two days they’ll tell the man every good thing he has ever done.

The tribe believes that every human being comes into the world as GOOD, each of us desiring safety, love, peace, happiness.

But sometimes in the pursuit of those things people make mistakes. The community sees misdeeds as a cry for help.

They band together for the sake of their fellow man to hold him up, to reconnect him with his true Nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth from which he’d temporarily been disconnected:

“I AM GOOD”.

“SAWABONA” is a common greeting among the tribes of northern Natal in South Africa and it literally means “I SEE YOU” As to say, “I respect and acknowledge you for who you are” In return people say “SIKBONA” which literally means “I AM HERE” as to say “When you see me you bring me into existence”. “

Dairy, gluten and nut free alfredo sauce made from creamy cauliflower. Incredibly easy, super healthy and makes me wonder why we never made it like this in the first place. Cauliflower is a very versatile vegetable that virtually has no flavour so can be used in replacement for a lot of things. If you can substitute grains and dairy with a fresh organic vegetable it’s a winner in my opinion. I’ve seen a lot of recipes floating round for cauliflower rice, cauliflower pizza crust and now this cauliflower alfredo sauce I was recommended by my cousin so I thought I’d give it a go and it was every bit like the real thing but HEALTHY. 
The recipe was taken from Detoxinista’s website (one of my favourite health food sites for recipes) here: http://detoxinista.com/2013/05/creamy-cauliflower-alfredo-dairy-free-nut-free/
The spaghetti I used was brown rice spaghetti from Dove’s farm (organic and gluten free) and I added in some chopped portobello mushroom and broccoli in the sauce too. Delicious :-)

Last night, late night, date night my buddy took me to La Suite West’s RAW restaurant situated on Inverness Terrace in London. 
Away from the usual “Mother Earth” decor associated with Vegan restaurants around London, La Suite West’s RAW restaurant is tucked away in the contemporary designed hotel serving fresh seasonal vegan dishes never heated above 42°C. Vegetable and fruit mocktails, beetroot falafels (my favourite), papaya pappardelle (my second favourite), cauliflower samosas and mushroom and quinoa burgers with sweet potato bread are only the few options off the menu that we tried. Totally guilt free, healthy and tasty eating out in London. Such a relief to have more of these options popping up and I’ll definitely be making my way back for some raw cacao cookies, orange and chocolate “cheesecake” and chocolate and coconut cake. Mmmm delicious!
