This is an awesome video by Valya Boutenko, where she talks about which fruits to use to make a creamy green smoothie.

It can be discouraging to make a yuck-tasting green smoothie, but her tips will definitely increase your chances of success.

If someone you loved was deliberately injuring themselves, three times a day, every single day, and suffering debilitating pain and disease as a result, wouldn’t you want them to stop?

According to Dr Michael Greger, a whole food, plant-based diet is the nutritional equivalent of quitting smoking.

His 2014 review of the science around diet and disabling diseases, clearly shows that a vegan diet can reverse and even cure a huge range of our most crippling conditions, including:

  • high-blood pressure
  • angina
  • back pain
  • Alzheimer’s
  • stroke
  • cancer

thereby eliminating the need for expensive drugs or invasive surgery.

What we eat is the most important interaction we have with the world around us, and it’s affecting everyone, even our kids.

And apparently doctors don’t tell us about the power of a plant-based diet, because they think we’re afraid of feeling deprived.

I swear that I have NEVER felt deprived on my whole foods, vegan diet - in fact I have never eaten as well as I do now - and if I have to choose between eating meat, dairy and eggs or chronic pain and disease, I choose life.

If you need facts to believe that eating a plant-based diet is the way to a massively improved quality of life, then this presentation is worth every second.

And, PLEASE, share it with those you love <3

I baked a cake recently for the first time in years and it turned out surprisingly well. In fact, it may just be the best vegan cake I&#8217;ve ever made.
It was a vegan chocolate birthday cake for my daughter&#8217;s 5th birthday, out of Angela Liddon&#8217;s &#8220;Oh She Glows Cookbook&#8221;.
I even learned a few things along the way:
Line just the bottom of the cake tin with baking paper
Baking times can vary, a lot
Icing sugar makes an awesome instant decoration
And honour has been satisfied, for another year at least :)

Just look at the rainbow of colour and vitality that I got to eat for dinner last night, when we had vegan burritos and tacos.
So fresh and delicious!

I grew an amazing crop of tomatoes this summer, so naturally I had to find lots of ways to use them up.
This one - an easy, filling vegan cream of tomato soup - was inspired by a recipe in the Great Vegan Bean Book by Kathy Hester.
I call it &#8220;blender soup&#8221; because I made it in my Vitamix, simply by blending everything at high speed until it just started to boil.
It uses white beans and cashews for creaminess and is packed full of fresh basil and whole food ingredients, and it takes less than 20 minutes from go to whoa.
That&#8217;s my kind of dish.
What amazes me most of all is that I ate this soup every day for three months straight.
Without getting sick of it!
Me, who can&#8217;t stand a dish after I&#8217;ve eaten it three days in a row.
So that says something about how unbelievably tasty this soup is.
