Anyone who knows me well will know I LOVE Tahini. My sister declares that I am the only person that can lick it from the spoon. I put it in my smoothies, use it for my favourite salad and steamed veggie dressings and dollop it into houmous. This recipe was always going to be a winner with me.

This is my kind of meal. Fresh, quick (just 30 minutes required!), satisfying, lots of vegetables, and plenty of protein. The beauty of a meal like this is you can use practically whatever produce you have on hand. For a variety of textures and flavors, I went with cucumber, green onion, red pepper, and carrot noodles.

People the world over, from all sorts of backgrounds and of all ages have been going vegan over the last couple of years. It seems like the world is waking up to the possibility of trading chronic diseases and inflammation for compassion, health and longevity. But why should you go vegan? Did you know th
For those that have known me when I was younger you may also remember the kitchen is not my natural domain. I was much more a bar and restaurant girl preferring to eat out then cook. Whilst at Uni my favourite meal was crunchy nut cornflakes with yogurt on top. I'd have this for dinner and somehow think it was a good option. I traveled extensively after university and never had a kitchen at hand. Forward wind 25 years.....I am making almond milk, creating vegan ice pops for a
The title says it all. It’s pure happiness : a crunchy chocolate cover with a frozen banana and peanut butter core. Decadent and refreshing at the same time. Totally sugar free and dairy free. They can even go towards your 5 a day. I’ve always loved frozen bananas, it’s the perfect snack, makes amazing nice cream and turns into a fabulous desert super easily. Add some peanut butter and its heaven. Make sure you have some kids/friends/family around to help you eat them or simp
