These brownies are at least as delicious as the most rich, unhealthy, gooey brownies I have ever eaten. Since I am a chocoholic of note, you can take my word for it. It is hard to believe that they are actually good for you. Because they are so rich, you will be satisfied with a couple of squares. And if you have all the ingredients at hand, they are ready to eat within 20 minutes, including cleaning up. They can be prepared in a large batch, cut up into bite-size pieces and kept in an […] Continue reading →

A very tasty, raw, but hot soup, that you can whizz up within a few minutes – this is real ‘fast food’ that is so good for you, too. One of the best investments I made around 20 years ago was my Vita Mix Power Blender (yes, you are reading right – 20 years and still going strong!). And there were not many days in those 20  years when I did not use it. It is immensely versatile. Today there are a number of different makes on the market. A good, affordable one is the […] Continue reading →


Healthy Halvah

Halvah is a Middle Eastern sweet, usually made from ground sesame seeds and lots of sugar. This recipe is just as delicious but nutritionally far superior.

Here is a recipe for delicious raw health bars: Ingredients 350 ml peanut butter […] Continue reading →

Raw Lemon Pie

This Lemon Pie is always a hit with guests, and the best part is that it is healthy. In avocado season it is a great way to use up several avos when they all ripen at once. It is said to keep a week in the fridge, however in my house we never get a chance to verify this, as it usually gets eaten within a couple of days at most. However, if I manage to put some in the freezer before it is all gobbled up, just know that it freezes well. ingredients for the crust: 1 1/2 cups […] […] Continue reading →

This Fish Pie recipe has been adapted from a Jamie Oliver Recipe, and in true J.O. style, it is easy, fuss free, and fast to rustle up – great for when guests come to dinner, as it serves 6. It can be adapted to diary free, by omitting the cheese and adding Nature’s Choice Mock Parmesan Cheese, or make your own vegan cheese from any of the many available raw cook books, or just chop cashew or macademia nuts very finely (in a power blender this can be done within a few seconds, […] Continue reading →

Freezes well – make a batch and freeze in portions. Great instead of butter. […] Continue reading →
