What do you get when you cross a raw vegan on holiday, a plentiful supply of fresh, colourful fruit and a big bag of hemp seeds?
Why, this crunchy hemp coconut fruit salad, of course.
Make it in 5 minutes, with no need for fancy equipment, and have yourself a meal that’s light yet filling, for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I didn’t know until recently that you could even make popcorn without oil.
But it works so well. Just mountains of completely natural, puffed corn.
And I love watching those kernels pop. It’s mesmerising.
So quick, no greasy fingers, and the frying pan is super easy to clean afterwards.
Oh yes, and the popcorn is “eat it by the handful” delicious too.
Now that’s my kind of recipe.

Mmmmm, a long, tall, cold glass of raw pina colada smoothie.
No pinecones or straining here. (That’s what pina colada means, in case you were wondering.)
Just the rich and creamy taste of coconut milk perfectly balanced with the tang of fresh pineapple, and melded together with banana, dates and vanilla.
And tiny paper umbrellas, of course.

Mmmmmm. Strawberries with coconut cream.
OK, technically it’s raw coconut yoghurt, but “strawberries and cream” sounds so much better, don’t you think?
And when you’ve tasted sweet and tangy berries with sweet and tangy coconut cream/yoghurt, I don’t think you’ll care what it’s called either.
And don’t these strawberries look simply amazing? So colourful and vibrant. And they taste even better than they look.
So much good food for us to enjoy :D

Are you a processed person?
From the day we’re born, we’re encouraged to consume food-like products, instead of whole, unprocessed foods.
I’m so very grateful to have discovered the raw, vegan, whole food way of eating, and for all the amazing people who are doing their best to spread the word about the amazing power of food to transform our health.
I finally took the plunge and had a go at making my own homemade raw vegan chocolate.
Don’t they look amazing in these cute chocolate moulds?
After three attempts, I’ve discovered that I’m a long way from being an expert chocolate maker, but the more “experiments” I do, the more chocolate I “have” to eat, so I’m not complaining.
And this stuff is totally, utterly addictive.

I have a confession to make. I’m sharing my winter green smoothie recipe with you for utterly selfish reasons.
You see, I’m forgetful.
Every season, as the available fruit changes, I have to adjust my green smoothie making to suit.
And the trouble is, I can’t remember what I did last week, let alone 12 months ago.
So having discovered this amazing delicious, incredibly versatile winter green smoothie recipe, I’m sharing this with you now so I don’t have to try and remember it next year.
This amazing delicious, incredibly versatile winter green smoothie recipe uses pears, apples and bananas, and works amazingly well with every leafy green I’ve thrown at it.
So far I’ve tried spinach, chard/silverbeet, arugula/roquette, kale, bok choy, chicory, collards and chinese broccoli.

Check out these super cool Halloween treats from FullyRaw Kristina.
She does pumpkins, spiders, brains and boo-nanas, all made from fresh fruit and veggies.
P.S. Make sure you watch the video all the way to the end ;)
My latest green smoothie is SO thick that it really deserves to be called a “Green Ploppie”.
I’ve developed this technique for making as many green smoothies as humanly possible in one go.
Getting 2.5L of smoothie out of a 2L jug? That’s efficient.
I love being efficient. I love my Vitamix.
And I love my green smoothies.
Sometimes it feels like I get to eat dessert all the time.
Just look at this lunch I had the other day - sliced bananas with fresh coconut yoghurt and chocolate coconut cream.
It’s raw, vegan, wholefood and decadently delicious.
Eating chocolate for lunch is perfect in so many ways, especially because it means it’s not going to keep me awake all night.
And after a meal like this I feel completely satisfied and utterly indulgent, yet incredibly healthy at the same time.
And that’s how food should be, don’t you think?
