I make a smoothie for my kids every morning.
It’s the perfect way to hide vegetables they are not keen on like green leafy veg and avocado.

Recipe:
1/2 Avocado
1-2 handfuls of berries
Romaine lettuce
Rice Milk
Stevia if needed

Hi everyone!
Hope you are having a great summer!
This video is about my skin care routine.

In this video I’ll show you have to make a really easy cream especially for eczema skin.
Of course no cream is going to remove the eczema, you need to deal with the underlying cause which can be very tricky.

When you take care of the eczema the skin should be kept moisturized and soft so it’s not getting extra itchy and that’s where a good cream is useful.
This simple homemade cream is easy to make and will in the long run be less expensive than lotions buy in the health store.
Also you can tailor the ingredients to suit your personal allergies.

Happy Friday everyone!
I’m more into recording videos than to write at the moment.
I don’t even write a script before I record I just have an idea and then I put the camera on a tripod and press record.
Maybe I should write some sort of script and stick to it :) you might understand after watching this video.

These are my 2 favourite raw pasta sauces to go with the raw spaghetti from the last video.
One is a raw pesto and the other a lighter tomato sauce.

I hope you like it!

 A spiralizer is fun and a great way to get more raw vegetables into your diet.
It’s my favourite kitchen gadget at the moment, it’s extremely satisfying churning out the veg spaghetti and the kids love it.

How to obtain optimum health by Dr Brian Clement, Saturday June 21st, Regents University
 
Reverse the Effects of Premature Aging & Heal Disease
 
Dr Brian Clement, Ph.D., N.M.D., L.N., a naturopathic doctor, nutritionist and author of more than 20 books, is the director of the world renowned Hippocrates Health Institute.  Since 1953, the Hippocrates Health Institute has spearheaded the international progressive health movement and pioneered wheatgrass therapy, green juice therapy and the increasingly popular raw food movement.  A frequent guest on television, radio, has been widely published, and acts as a resource expert for several publications; he has been recognised for this significant contribution in the field of modern health care by “Who’s Who among outstanding Americans”.
 
Trailblazers in the Field of Natural & Complimentary Health Care
 
Over the last half century Dr Clement and his team have pioneered clinical research and training in disease and prevention using hundreds of thousands of participants who provided volumes of data, giving Dr Clement a deep understanding into the lifestyle required to prevent premature ageing and disease, enhance longevity, and maintain optimum health.
 
Agenda for the Day:
  1. An outline of the principles of the Life Transformation Programme, which has evolved at the institute over 60 years, utilising data from tens of thousands of functional tests.  The Life Transformation Programme provides the ultimate approach to health, natural beauty and longevity.
  2. We will continue with discussions regarding Dr Clements’ extensive clinical research and observations which have afforded him a unique insight into how we can prevent premature ageing and disease.
  3. Not all supplements are created equal, and we will learn more about how the vast majority of supplements on the market today may be at best ineffective, at worst toxic.  Naturally-occurring supplements are what our bodies need: highly digestible food-based supplements derived from plants grown in rich, organic soils.  Learn which supplements can best effect rejuvenation, delay pre-mature ageing and support well-being.
  4. The day will end with an extended question and answer session.

Doors open at 10am – get there early for the opportunity to purchase discounted supplements and greet friends.  Lecture starts at 10.30am and finishes at 4.30pm.  There will be an hour for lunch which can be taken in the stunning formal gardens.  Doors close at 5pm.

Raw Pasta

 

This Raw Celeriac Mushroom and Pine Nuts Pasta is one of my all time favourite raw dishes.
It’s filling, crunchy and salty and so easy to make!

Ingredients
1 celeriac root head
3 cups of mushrooms
1/2 cup pine nuts
2 table spoons of fresh sage and parsley
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
3 tablespoon of olive oil
2 table spoons of tamari sauce
Sea salt

Directions
Peel and slice the celeriac really thinly (it’s helpful to use a julienne or even better a spirulizer) You want it to reassemble pasta.
In the above picture I used a handheld julienne and than I cut it to size.

Mix the celeriac with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of olive oil some sea salt and put aside.

Slice the mushrooms really thinly.
Cut the herbs finely.

Mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of tamari sauce and the herbs together.
In a bowel mix the mushrooms and pine nuts and pour over the olive oil and tamari mixture. Let it marinate for 10 minutes.

Assemble the celeriac pasta and the mushroom mix, let it marinate for another 5 minutes and serve.

Hope you like it!!

Raw pasta

Raw pasta zuccini

 Zucchinis are in season!
Apart from being really tasty they are also packed full of nutrients like Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Folate and Potassium and they are mega low in calories.

Zucchinis are super delicious both raw and cooked.
Below are 2 recipes that I’m using at the moment.

The first one is a Raw Pasta recipe from Natasha Corrett’s great cookbook Honestly Healthy and the other is my fave Zucchini Fritters recipe.
Enjoy!

Corrett’s Raw Courgette Spaghetti is beyond quick to make and  it’s really fresh and zingy. 

Ingredients
2 Courgettes slicked thinly on a Mandolin or a spiraliser
1 mango
20 Mint leaves
5 tbsp. Olive Oil
Lime juice
1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
Piece of fresh root ginger
Red Chilli (I sometimes skip this as the kids get traumatised :))
Salt and pepper

Directions
Slice the courgette thinly (I used my small handheld mandolin on the thinnest setting)
Mix the rest of the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
Assemble and tuck in!

Zuccini fritters

These egg and gluten free Zucchini Fritters are yummy!

Ingredients
2 zucchinis
3 spring onions
1/2 cup of fresh Parsley and Mint mix
1/4 cup of  coconut flour or rice flour
raw coconut oil for frying
Salt and pepper

Directions
Grate the zucchinis, add 1 teaspoon of salt and let it sit for 10 minutes after which you squeeze out as much liquid as you can.

Finley chop the spring onion, parsley and mint and mix with the zucchini.

Add the flour and mix.

Heat up the coconut oil and roll spoonful’s of the mixture and flatten out as you put them in the frying pan.
Fry for about 3 minutes on each side.

Serve with a mix green leaves salad,

I adore coffee, unfortunately it’s not mutual.
But I have found a great substitute that is doing wonders for my liver :)

What I forgot to say in the video is that the safe levels for caffeine according to research is 400mg for an average adult and 200mg for a pregnant woman. According to Chemical and Engineering News a Grande coffee from a coffee shop contains 330mg, but this have been disputed by the coffee chain.

The Dandelion coffee that worked for me is the Non Instant Dandelion Coffee from Cotswold Health Products.
I’m sure you can get it online.
