Even with the best of intentions, sometimes we all run out of energy to prepare wholesome food from scratch.
So I was thrilled to discover two “accidentally” vegan soups in the La Zuppa range at my local supermarket - Italian Minestrone and Roasted Pumpkin.
Not only do they have the simplest lists of ingredients I’ve seen on ready-made soup, but they’re unbelievably delicious.
What delightful wholefood surprises are hiding in your supermarket?

Making raw vegan pesto, with fresh basil, hemp, garlic, savoury yeast, lemon juice and salt - and of course I had to eat the leftover scrapings out of the bowl ;)
This crazy colours vegan ice cream cake was a big success at my daughter’s birthday party recently.
Although she requested a rainbow cake, I figured the best I could hope for was more of a crazy quilt design.
I think I nailed it.

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
- back pain
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
