Food is close to our hearts

I have found that it can be tricky discussing what we eat – I have found that the subject touches peoples values, beliefs, culture, family and personal choices – it can be a sensitive subject much like discussing politics or religion. But it needn’t be this way! We simply have to lighten up when it comes to food. I personally thrive when I eat a plentiful diet that makes me feel vibrant, healthful and alive!

Going Raw

While transitioning towards a more plant based raw diet your own options will vary depending on your health, your goals and your current way of eating. I recommend that you do not get fixated on any rules in your early days of raw. Just start eating more plants and be happy. Moving towards my present eating habits took me more than 7 years of exploring what works for my body.

Eat plentifully

What I love about eating plant based high raw is that you don’t have to worry too much about calories. The secret is to eat plentifully so that your body feels alive, nourished and well. Taking care not to be eating too ‘gourmet’ with lots of heavy nut based dishes. I just go crazy healthy when I am exploring living raw plant based ingredients with organic herbs and medicinal foods.

SOME OF MY FAVOURITE DISHES

I went raw for a year

I lost 120lbs with a juicy raw diet. And looking back it wasn’t difficult but firstly what I had to do was clean the system. I had to detox. I did regular juice fasts then decided to go raw for a year. It changed my health and my life. I’m not 100% raw anymore but do regular juice cleanses, juice daily and eat a high raw (mostly) vegan* diet. *I choose to consume bee products for their powerful benefits to my health.

My daily diet

My aim: At least 1.5 litres of ph filtered water * At least a pint of green water (see blog for recipe) * At least one green juice (see blog for recipes) *At least one raw main meal using super-foods, some soaked nuts, seeds and sprouts as well as oodles of veggies and greens (see blog for recipes) *At least two pieces of fruit (on top of any juices) *At least one portion of sea vegetables (whether in powder or solid form in salads) * Medicinal mushroom lattes such as reishi & chaga (see blog for recipes).

My eating choices

These eating choices work for me. In the evening I might also have some cooked potatoes or steamed vegetables aswell as other lightly cooked and unprocessed foods from time to time. My approach to eating is loaded with all the nutrition that my body needs including essential proteins, amino acids and B vitamins. I never beat myself up for what I eat. If I enjoy it then it’s GOOD FOR ME!

And on some days, I just have a bag of chips or schnaffle a pizza. I try to keep life simple & not worry too much about food anymore.

I BLOG LOTS OF RECIPES AND ALWAYS EAT MY CREATIONS!

** HOW TO CARAMELISE RAW VEGGIES ** All food prepared with love is an absolute delight. And these caramelised veggies are no exception. 
They’re also a perfect addition to any festive platter. I just love massaging the paste in to these veggies before they get warmed in the dehydrator (or oven) and turned in to deliciously sweet, caramelly veggies (or crunchy chips if you keep them in for longer!) The basic paste is used in several of my plant based recipes. Because it’s sort of a staple. It’s easy and it just works! You can find it in my ebook A Raw Christmas and in my carrot batons recipe (you simply have to try it!) INGREDIENTS 🌟4 parsnips, beetroots or any veggies (especially roots)
🌟 3 tablespoons Udos Choice, olive or Flax oil
🌟 water to blend (1/4 cup)
🌟 2 tablespoons tamari
🌟 4 medjool dates
🌟 4 dried apricots
🌟 2 tablespoons maple syrup, raw honey or other liquid sweetener of your choice

METHOD

Clean and cut the veggies in to halves or thin slices. Mix the other ingredients to form a batter in a high-powered or personal blender. Pour the batter over the veggies a bowl and massage with your hands until all the veggies are really well covered. Remove and place on dehydrator trays. Spread the veggies over the trays including any excess sticky batter and dehydrate overnight (9 hours) on 43. Keep warm until dinnertime or keep drying until you get crunchy veggie chips (can you wait that long?)
