How to make Raw Eggnog

20140108180127(1)

I love eggnog, so delicious, scrumptious and Christmassy!
This version is also incredible healthy any without milk, egg or sugar.
And you can easily make it into a super-food-cocktail by adding some Bourbon!
Happy Christmas!
Here is the link to my post on how to make home-made glögg.

Monthly Beauty Buys

20140104155317(1)

This month’s beauty buys included the most important item in my make-up bag: Tweezermans slanted tweezers.
I thought I lost mine and ran to Whole Foods for a new one,
of course I found it under my bed when I was vacuuming a few hours later.
The shampoo from Intelligent Nutrients is completely gluten-free and smells minty and up-lifting.
The tinted lip moisturizer is from my fave brand Ilia and is in the super flattering colour Blossom Lady.
I needed a new body moisturizer and this one by Balance Me smells lovely of rose otto and I like the fact they are stocked by Waitrose.
I also got a new christmassy red colour nail polish from Kure Bazar in Cherie.
Kure Bazaar is definitely my favorinte non-toxic nail polish brand as the polish is really long-lasting in comes in great on trend colours.

I was woken up severely early in the morning by my 7-year-old who wanted to tell me that these chocolate balls were “the best ever, better than anything at Starbucks” err OK but I know he meant it like a compliment :)
They are raw, easy to make with ingredients you might already have in your cupboard and you don’t need a machine to make them, just some wrist action!
Happy Christmas!

Raw Buckwheat Porridge

20131211200319(1)

This porridge is like a big cosy bear-hug!
It’s filling without making you feel bloated or over-full.
The main ingredient is buckwheat – which contrary to it’s name is not related to wheat at all.
It’s actually a fruit seed and it’s cousin is rhubarb.
Buckwheat is high in manganese and magnesium and it’s also high in fibre..
It really works well with fresh organic blueberries on top.
Hope you like it!

Raw Swede Spaghetti with Spicy Sage Sauce

20131218183315(1)

The main ingredients in this raw spaghetti is a swede or yellow turnip which set me back 70 pence!
It cheap to be healthy :)
Swedes and turnips are full of vitamin C and fiber and really low in calories.
When you eat it raw I think you need a great kick-ass dressing or sauce.
I used the stuff I had in my cupboard and thankfully the sage and species worked really well!

Raw Orange, Beetroot and Ginger Soup

 

20131204192223(1)

This is a great little fresh nutritious-rich soup for one.
You actually only need the veg, the turmeric and cumin I add because they come with amazing health benefits and because it fits.
A lot of raw foods have oil or nuts in them making them quite calori-dense.
Not this one, so perfect if you need to prepare for the party season :)
