Did you know buying more plants is kind of like an immunity boosting habit? The more plants the cleaner the air. Do we need any more justification than that? To keep your winter as delicious, as it is beautifully green, try these winter warming drinks to keep the nutrition high, and the bugs at bay!
If you saw this post about making sure you get enough fibre, you will be so so so pleased to hear that this is a cake very rich in fibre, magnesium and good fats - without packing a tonne of dried fruit! It is as rich as it is beautiful. Put down your psyllium husks, and eat this instead (joking, not joking).
Oh heck, winter is here - this last week has seen that sunny edge just disappear! Here are A BUNCH winning (self-rated) recipes from the blog that will hit the spot just nicely - perfect transitions from the warm autumnal salads we were enjoying in May! Gluten free, and dairy free - of course!
I was lucky enough to find a pomegranate on the weekend, so after I was finished splattering all over my cream tiled floor, I was stoked that there were some left over to add a juicy punch to the butternut pumpkin, beet and leek.
Autumn is quickly becoming winter, but with all the rhubarb, fennel, pears and leeks around the place I can't help but still be inspired by the produce! Yum! I originally had a dressing in mind for this combination but when you use awesome produce, prepared with love, it can be overkill.
This needs to be made to be believed - the fudgey chocolate avocado cookie has 5 ingredients, takes five minutes to make and 8-10 minutes in the oven. Half of an avocado makes around 8-10 Tbs sized cookies, the perfect sugar free energy kick - and nut free too so perfect for lunch boxes!
This recipe takes a little longer than most of mine - but it is totally doable and totally worth it! Presents beautifully as well - I think that it is perfect for a lazy Sunday lunch or casual dinner party!
I do circle back around to oats every now and again, it reminds me of mum making porridge and use hiding knobs of butter in pockets from her - and then sneaking golden coated mouthfuls of soft oats on a cool morning. Amazing. This recipe isn't hot and doesn't have butter - sorry - but it is quick and really delicious.
It is as delicious for breakfast, as it is for lunch or dinner! But tonight, I massaged 4 leaves of shredded kale, stems removed), with the juice of one lime, a pinch of cayenne and a small slurp of oil...doing this made me realise I was making an Australia Day Salad lol! Then for a little crunch I spiced and toasted some seeds. I bet you will enjoy this recipe - and the techniques will be used over and over again in your ktichen!
Along with Cauliflower rice you do have a plant-based or plan-boosting option for rice and pasta. How ever you use it, they remain a great way to consume more raw vege and that is a win in my books! In the pic above I zoodled a zucchini and a couple of radishes - then it was topped with the coriander pesto below for a nutrient dense green component.
