I discovered this recipe  in a health magazine. It took me all of 10 minutes to make, and after 2 hours in the freezer, the chocolates were ready to eat, although it was just as delicious to lick the bowl! Double (or triple) the quantity to have extra. You need to serve and eat them straight from the freezer, as they go soft quickly when left outside. This recipes makes about 12 – 14 individual chocolates. Ingredients  2 Tablespoons of raw cacao powder 2 Tablespoons Tahini (or any […] Continue reading →

This is a quick, delicious alternative to just raw chocolates – great if you are pushed for time and need something in a hurry. You can use a food processor, but a power blender will do the job very well.

This recipe is an adaptation of one I found in the SA Journal of Natural Medicine. You can experiment with the ingredients – the recipe is very forgiving, as it is difficult to get it wrong. Raw cacao is loaded with minerals and has an exceptionally high ORAC score (Oxygen radical absorbance capacity is a method of measuring antioxidant capacities). All other ingredients in this recipe also belong to the category of  superfoods – so there is no need to feel guilty when […] Continue reading →

Ever since my brothers and I were children, my mom made these sandwiches from time to time for us, which we loved. A  platter full would be gone in no time at all. I have adapted them, using gluten free, or wheat free bread, vegan cheese instead of butter and vegan mayonnaise on top. If you are not strictly vegan a piece of boiled egg can be added. They are also great for cocktail parties or as starters instead of salads. Play around with various vegetables, but this is how we typically […] Continue reading →

I recently watched a video on how David Wolfe made a version of this super healthy, very tasty salad dressing, which is especially good for a youthful looking skin, but naturally has loads of other health benefits as well. It beats any commercial salad dressing, which is usually full of bad oils and other additives that are not meant to pass our lips, never mind find their way into our bodies. You can make a bigger batch and keep it in the fridge for a day or two or freeze in small […] Continue reading →
