Creamy Strawberry Dessert

20140323185038(1)

I’m sure you all know how incredible healthy chia seeds are: full of omega 3, minerals like calcium and manganese and lots of fab fibre. .
And if you like me have fussy eaters in the house, who don’t like the texture of the seeds as they expand (I know! how can you not love it! well a small child I know says it reminds him of eating fish-eyes) this is the perfect recipe.
It tastes just like a gorgeous bog-standard strawberry and cream pudding, the secret super-ingredient can not be detected :).
The trick is to bled the seeds to oblivion!
And don’t worry all the goodness is still intact.

Raw Warm Curried Carrot Soup

20140317221701(1)

This super delish raw curried soup is best served warm it’s also one of my all-time favorites!
Blend it with piping hot water and the goodness from the vegetables will still be intact.
As you know there is an annoying reason for my soup fixation, but I also really, really like soups.
It’s such a quick way to prepare a meal and the kids are also getting into it.
Result!

-

20140309182158(1)

A good way to introduce some warmth to your raw food diet in the winter months is to blend your vegetables with hot water, as in this creamy tomato soup.
Since the vegetables have not been cooked all the enzymes vitamins and minerals are still intact.
This soup is filling thanks to the nutritious pine nuts and at the same time it reminds me of a sunny holiday in Italy
Hope you like it!

It’s so hard not to eat these raw energy balls in one go!
But I do try to share since they are filled with goodness like chia seeds, sunflower seeds, tahini and plant protein.
They are a godsend when you are longing for something sweet and satisfying and you need it quickly!
No cooking or machinery is needed it literally takes 3 minutes and if you are desperate forget about the fridge part!

Super Healthy Raw Blueberry Dessert

20140223194437(1)

This deliciously light and fluffy blueberry dessert is so easy to make!
It’s also raw which means there are more nutrients than in a cooked dessert, it’s easier to digest and easier for the body to assimilate all the nutrients.

Monthly Beauty Buys

20140216205204(2)

These are my latest non-toxic beauty buys:
The cleansing milk and the face oil are both from Swedish brand Estelle & Thild.
I normally go for a cleansing oil but this one is really creamy and thick and I can get the eye make up off as well.
The youth oil smells lovely and It’s not to thick or to light, just perfect!
I needed a new mascara, and after having gone through most non-toxic versions on the market, the Organic Glam mascara in black is my favourite for va-va-voom lashes.
To make my eyes pop a bit, I rely on a thin eyeliner line and this one  by Lavera does the job!
I also got a natural nail polish remover from Benecos.
It works, but you have to use a bit more elbow-grease to get the nails clean and shiny, something I’m completely happy to do, to help us all :)
