This super nutritious cold soup is filling and light at the same time, if that makes sense.
It’s also a beauty soup!
The avocado provides gorgeous fats for your skin.
The cucumber will help your hair and the chili speeds up your metabolism.

This Raw crunchy nurturing Broccoli and Pesto salad with Pomegranate seeds is definitely one of my top salads.
Everything is raw like nature intended so no goodness is lost in the cooking process.
You just chop mix and assemble!
Making your own pesto is so easy it should be illegal to buy it ready-made!

– bunch of kale
– red onion
– 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
For the pesto:
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
– 1/2 cup olive oil
– bunch of fresh basil
– salt and pepper
This chocolate and matcha tea cream dessert tastes naughty but is really super healthy!
– I tin coconut milk (creamy part),
– 1 1/2 tbsp. raw cacao

– 4 tsp. coconut sugar
– sea salt
I managed to pack my own bag, the kids bags and made them dinner in only 20 minutes as we set off to Stockholm this summer.
This is a record for me!
Needless to say there were necessary items that did not come with us, like body wash and shampoo, hence a mad rush for new products as soon as we landed.
I bought Bjork and Berries gorgeously scented Never Spring body wash .
Bjork and Berries describe themselves as an eco luxury beauty brand derived by Swedish nature and traditions.
The body wash contains no sulphates but a “mild preservatives”. You can get this brand in the UK and online.
I also got Estelle and Thilde shampoo and conditioner, another Swedish brand.
I find this shampoo keeps my hair clean for one day longer than other shampoos, it doesn’t lather greatly but certainly cleans well.
The conditioner first feels heavy when you put it in your hand but when you apply it to the hair it sort of disappears and it’s not heavy at all.
I can’t live without lipstick.
If I could only chose one product to use for the rest of my life it would be a lipstick and I’m particularly impressed with Ilia’s lipstick In My Room.
This is a repeat buy for me, I pray it’s never discontinued!
It’s the perfect nude.
I’m all for extra sparkle to my skin when going out and Living Luminizer by RMS does the trick.
It’s really subtle and sheer and very easy to use.
I apply it to my cheeks, bridge of the nose and just above the eye brows.
This pudding is perfect as a super healthy end of the meal, as a filling snack or as a satisfying breakfast.
Hope you like it!

I love my Zuko Quick Pop Maker.
I’m not good with planning ahead and if the kids/me want an ice lolly straight away that is now possible :)
I’m always trying to feed the kids nutrient dense foods and making ice lollies is just another opportunity to get the to eat more vegetables.
Hope you like it!
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.
