My Choco-Coco Smoothie

Featured

Want a healthy chocolate smoothie?

There’s a gorgeous little cafe not far from us that has the most amazing cacao and date smoothie on the menu.  Mr nearly three and I can’t help ourselves.  We can’t talk as we sip down our smoothies watching the waves crash on the shore.  Hubby just laughs at us.

We salivate!!

Afterwards, we play chasey on the sand… And giggle.

 

So what do you do?

We do what we do best.  We come home and recreate our very own.

Trust me, you’ll love it!  It’s a favourite in our house.

Supergreens and super kids…

Featured

There’s something to be said for those moments we shared as kids over milkshakes.  The cold silver cups filled to the brim with a gorgeous frothy milkshake that always disappeared too quickly.  Way too quickly…  Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla, Lime and Caramel.  Fanta spiders.  Creaming soda spiders…. Roller-skates were our mode of transport.  We sat at milk bars for hours.  We made friends.  We laughed.  We loved.

Memories were made.

Fast forward (err….cough!) 30+ years and we are sitting in my kitchen.  Mr nearly three hanging with me.  His love of smoothies is pretty cute.  The mention of one sends him in a happy dance across the kitchen floor, high-fiving the world.  I’m not quite sure when I let him in on a little secret… That it’s healthy.  We sit and laugh.  And love.  And drink supergreen smoothies in glass jars with stainless steel straws.  A little hipster you say.  Not really.  We are just being kind to ourselves and to the earth.

What does it matter if it’s healthy?  Maybe I won’t ever tell him.  What would it achieve…?Memories are being made.  Good ones.  And there’s not one single grain of refined sugar in sight.

That’s our little secret!

My nitrate free and smoke free home cured bacon

Featured

IMG_0989

Theres something irresistible about bacon.

Crispy, salty yumminess…

It sings Sunday mornings. School holidays. Summer. Family. Happiness. Freedom.

Yet the story behind bacon is not a good one.  Sad, forelorn pigs locked in cages far from the open paddocks they long for. Unable to turn around. Unable to walk; let alone run. Never having felt the sun on their skins. Our world is seriously f&@# up!!

The heart of my 40 year old self skips a beat every time I walk down the smallgoods aisle of a supermarket. Past the meat section with its open fridges containing long lines of cheap factory farmed meat.  The image in my mind of tortured pigs in cages in dark, cold, sterile piggeries to me are not unlike the pictures from genocide camps in WW2. I cannot, and WILL NOT ever buy this meat!!! I would rather go hungry.

Lucky for me there are choices. If you look hard enough there are options. I firmly believe that by the choices we make everyday within our food stores and our farmers markets we can change the way our food is raised.  Grown.  Produced.  And the way the human race treats it’s animals.

This is why I choose to buy only free range, organic where possible, ethically raised and slaughtered, grass fed and finished meat. The way meat should naturally be.  I don’t believe this is a financial choice only some can make. We all have options.  Reduce your portion size if you need to. Buy direct from farmers at your local market and cut out the middle man. You have a choice. We all have a choice. And if you care strongly enough, like me, have the guts to stand firm on it.

My nitrate free, smoke free, ethically raised bacon

  • A square piece of ethically raised, grass fed and finished pork loin or belly roughly 16cm squared; trimmed and rind scored thinly through to the fat
  • 1/2 cup Himalayan or sea salt
  • 1/2 cup Panela, Rapudura or coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tspn turmeric
  • 1 dash of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 dash of bourbon

Mix together the apple cider vinegar and bourbon I a bowl. Pour mix over the meat and rub in well, making sure it gets into the score marks in the rind. Then mix the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. Cover the entire cut of pork with the dry mix, pushing it into every nook and cranny including the score marks. When you’re happy, place meat into a sealed container or glad bag. Place into the fridge for 3 days (longer for a bigger cut of meat). Toss and turn it everyday until it feels firmer to touch.

When cured, rinse the meat well under the cold tap and pat dry with absorbent paper. Place back into the fridge, uncovered and on a rack, for 24 hrs.

Roast slowly in the centre of your oven at 100 degrees Celsius for around 90 minutes. This is the time where you could also choose to smoke your bacon. (I choose not to due to the carcinogens found in wood smoke). Once cooked, chill again in fridge.

Slice and keep in fridge for a few days or freezer for a few months.  We have bought a meat slicer from eBay as it is a much easier way to slice your bacon. We have found the best results and taste with bacon sliced in 2-3mm slices. Thick slices seem to be quite firm.

Good luck!

My delectably delicious and utterly luxurious body butter

Featured

I can’t wait to share my homemade recipe with you!!!  Think of everything fabulous for skin and voila!!!  Here it is in one little jar!

body butter 2This body butter is packed full with sooooo many nutrients.  The raw products are not cheap initially to buy but I believe that if you buy in bulk, the quantities you are able to make each batch and the beautiful skin you get after use make the cost worth it.

I am currently just over seven months pregnant and I have used this body butter everyday, both morning and night, on my belly since 6 weeks. Touching wood, to date I am stretch mark free.

Ingredients

Makes enough to fill a 500 gm jar 

  • 125gms cocoa butter
  • 50gms coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp jojoba oil
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp macadamia oil
  • 2 tbsp rose hip oil
  • 1 tbsp vitamin e liquid
  • 10 drops lavender oil
  • 6 drops mandarin oil

(NB I have kept essential oil blends to a small amount and limited oils due to pregnancy but feel free to add what you’d like!! Just remember, the butter will have a slight chocolatey smell due to the cocoa butter.)

On low heat, gently melt cocoa butter and coconut oil together. Do not heat any more than required. Remove from stove and leave to cool until just over room temperature. Mix together in a bowl with other ingredients.  Pour into jar immediately and place in refrigerator to cool whilst still well mixed for a few hours. Remove from fridge and let warm to room temperature. Then use…use…and use some more!!! Cover yourself in this luxurious body butter!!! 

In colder temperatures you will find that the butter will be quite firm.  It will soften when rubbed between your fingers.  In hot climates, you may need to slightly change the ratio of cocoa butter to coconut oil to stop it going runny.  Just add a little more cocoa butter to the mix.

skiin

This butter seems to have a shelf life of close to a year if not more in your bathroom.  I haven’t left it lying ’round long enough to find it go off.  I can’t get enough of it!  

Hope you love as much as me!!

Nitrate-free Corned Beef Silverside

The verdict is in!  The organic beef brisket/silverside that I corned at home a few weeks ago without nitrates was voted by ALL that tasted it as “the best corned meat they have EVER tasted!”

With winter rearing its head here in Australia, we are all turning to yummy, bone-warming meals to warm our souls.  My mother used to do a mean Corned Beef so this is always a favourite in our house.  Previously, we have bought the raw store-corned nitrate loaded version, but after how easy and how yummy it is to do yourself at home, NEVER again will I cook a store bought version.

Picture-14-Modern-Gas-FireplacesNitrate is a preservative found in many meat products including bacon, salami and many smallgoods.  It is considered carcinogenic and has been linked to cancer.  What better reason to avoid it at all cost!

Here’s the recipe I adapted from another who had apparently originally adapted it from Alton Brown’s Good Eats.  It will take at least 10 days in the fridge to fully corn and you can freeze in the brine once done.

Corning your meat

  • 2-2.5kg organically reared beef brisket/silverside
  • 2 litres water
  • 1 cup himalayan rock salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns
  • 3 star anise
  • 1 tsp allspice powder
  • 12 juniper berries
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger

Place the water into a large stockpot along with all the dry ingredients. Cook over high heat until the salt and sugar have dissolved. At this point it smells beautiful!

Take brine mixture off the stove and leave to cool to room temperature.

Once it has cooled, place the meat in a zip top bag or large glass container with lid and add the brine.  Seal and lay flat, cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 10 days.   Check daily to make sure the beef is completely submerged and flip over to stir the brine.

Cooking your Corned Meat 10 days later

  • 2 white onions, whole and peeled
  • 3large carrots, peeled and cut in large chunks
  • 2-3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 tbsp agave syrup
  • 10 cloves

After at least 10 days, rinse the meat and place into a slow cooker or a pot just large enough to hold the meat.  Add the above ingredients and cover with water.

In a pot, bring to the boil over low heat and simmer for 3 hours until the meat is fork tender.

In a slow cooker, set to low and leave for 7-8 hours.

Remove from the pot and thinly slice across the grain.  In our house we serve it with the onions, carrots, white sauce, mashed potato and peas.  Yummo!

Rasberry Frozen Yoghurt

TLT-raspberry-froyo-HCI am not one to waste food.  So when we are going away and I see half a litre of beautiful homemade Greek yoghurt in the fridge, it is time to make some frozen yoghurt!  This little recipe is one I made up and it is soooooo easy.  Just three ingredients….

  • Greek yoghurt (I used 1/2 litre)
  • Rasberries or any kind of berries (I had half a packet left of frozen Organic berries – If not organic, make sure you rinse well as frozen berries are covered in toxic chemicals)
  • Agave Syrup to taste (I added about two tablespoons for the amount of yoghurt I had)

Now I am lucky enough to be able to add these three ingredients into an ice cream maker and then let it do it’s magic.  If you are not so lucky, mix ingredients well with a hand blender then freeze until nearly frozen.  Blend again and then put back into the freezer until you are ready to serve.  Yum!  The yoghurt freezes hard so you may need to leave on the bench for a few minutes to thaw before you serve.  Enjoy! ♥

My Cacao Coconut Bliss Balls

rawdatetreats_1264Looking for a yummy, healthy, sweet treat with none of those sugar spikes.  A treat that is good for you and a treat that can help rid your body of cellulite.  Well… look no further.  The best news is that you can make them at home in less than 10 minutes!

My Cacao Balls

  • 1 1/5 cups pitted dried dates
  • 1/2 cup STRONG green tea
  • 4 tbsp LSA
  • 4 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 4 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 handful sultanas
  • 2 tbsp dark agave syrup (to taste)
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2-3 tbsp raw organic coconut oil (to desired consistency)
  • 1 dash vanilla extract
  • 1 cup organic unsweetened shredded coconut

Soak the dates in the green tea for 5 minutes or so.  Then in a food processor add the dates to the rest of the ingredients (minus the coconut oil and the shredded coconut).  Whir with chopping blade.  Once chopped, use the remaining green tea and the coconut oil to moisten the mixture till you reach the desired consistency to be able to roll into balls with your hands.  If too moist, slowly add more coconut flour.  Taking a teaspoon full of mixture at a time, roll into balls and then coat with organic shredded coconut.  Refrigerate for an hour to harden the balls.  Balls can then be kept in the fridge or at room temperature in a sealed container.  Your choice!

coconut-rum-ballsYou will find my cacao balls delicious and just the right sweetener to keep those sugar cravings at bay.  Packed with fibre, loaded with raw coconut and it’s health benefits, gluten free, with green tea antioxidants and low GI, I find these balls eliminate my refined sugar intake and help strip my body of cellulite.  And the best thing is, one or two can really satisfy!

I’d love to hear what you think! ♥

Our Homegrown Tomatoes…

Tomatoes.  So easy to grow. So rewarding to grow. So fun to grow…roma_tomato_6-20-12

We are picking close to ten tomatoes every few days off the three vines we have planted in our garden.  Such a bountiful crop!  Traditionally considered a fruit, tomatoes are packed full of Vitamin C, vitamin A and Lycopene.  Lycopene is not an essential antioxidant required in the human diet but it is non-toxic and has been linked as a potential fighter in the prevention of certain cancers in the human body.  Tomatoes also help the body in fighting our harsh Australian UV rays.

Here’s a little fact.  Tomatoes have four chambers within them.  And so do our hearts.  Funny that, as it must be nature’s way of letting us know how good eating tomatoes is for the health of our hearts!P1010415

We grow Roma Tomatoes as both my family and myself are susceptible to salicylates.  Roma tomatoes contain the lowest levels of salicylates of all tomatoes.  Almost all foods contain some form of salicylate.  It’s a substance that acts as a natural preservative and insecticide.

What better way to celebrate your beautiful home-grown tomatoes than with them taking pride and place on top of your own home-made pizzas!

P1010422I will share with you soon my husband’s fabulous gluten-free pizza dough.  He is a fabulous home-taught breadmaker and his doughs, pastry and breads are divine!

My Choc Mint ice cream… dairy and sugar free….and delicious!

Okay…..As promised here’s my recipe for a dairy and sugar free Choc Mint Ice Cream that is really yummy!  It has been stinking hot here again in Perth today, so I thought I’d surprise my hubby with a yummy thai chicken salad followed by Choc Mint ice cream for dessert.  What a nice cooling way to end the day……P1010430 Okay…Okay…I’ll get straight to the ice cream!  Just had to set the scene, that’s all!!

Choc Mint ice cream

  • 1 cup of coconut cream
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 hefty bunch of mint, spearmint, peppermint, choc mint…..Whatever you have in your garden
  • 1 handful of spinach leaves (minus the stalks)
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A few drops of peppermint oil to taste!
  • 200gm of dark mint chocolate

I wizzed all the ingredients except for the chocolate together in a blender until totally combined.  You want all the leaves to have disappeared into your mixture.  Then place the mix into your ice cream maker and follow manufacturer’s instructions. P1010428 I then crushed the chocolate into chips in my food processor and added to the ice cream mix when it was really cold but not yet frozen.  Any earlier and the choc chips will melt. 

Then, unfortunately, you need to sit back and wait for the rest to happen….

You could also make this recipe by blending, then freezing till nearly frozen, blend again, freeze and continue to mix this way until totally creamy and not icey.  My mix turned out a dirty green colour which I find quite rustic, but for a bright green I can’t think of any other way other than adding green food colouring…. something I would prefer to do without.mint-choc-chip-ice-cream2

And wha….la!!!!!!!!!!!  Done.

PS Hubby LOVED it! So will yours.  The spinach is our little secret!

Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream

chocolate-ice-cream24webSummer is here with a venegance!  Heat waves all over Australia.  Devastating bush fires in Tasmania, New South Wales and the ACT.  There seems to be no end in sight!

We are all looking for ways to cool down!

There is nothing yummier or cooler on a hot summer’s day than a beautiful big bowl of home-made ice cream.  This Chocolate Coconut ice cream was such a cinch to make.

My healthy Chocolate Coconut Ice Cream

  • 2 heaped tablespoons of cacao powder (Or substitute with cocoa.  Cacao is raw, not heat treated like cocoa, and is therefore packed full of nutrients and antioxidants. Nature’s super, dooper food!)
  • 1/3 cup agave syrup (a yummy, unprocessed, low GI sweetener made from a mexican cactus.)
  • 3 cups of coconut cream (we all know the health benefits of coconut! ;))

Mix together well with beaters and then place into an ice cream maker and follow manufacturers instructions.

OMG!! Yum!!

Next I am going to try a healthy version of choc mint ice cream…. Nice and cooling on a hot day.  Will promise to share…

Organic meat vs conventional farmed meat

Featured

Why eat organic meat?

There are many reasons to choose organic meat over regular farmed meat.  Both health wise and ethically.

  • You will find more Omega 3s in grass-fed pasture ORGANIC meat.  As we all know, Omegas 3s are essential in reducing risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer etc.
  • ORGANIC meat contains up to five times more CLA, a fatty acid called Linoleic acid which reduces your risk of cancer.
  • A 170 gram ORGANIC steak has 100 less calories compared to a regular steak.  It also contains less saturated fat.
  • ORGANIC meat is free from toxins, antibiotics and hormones.  Because ORGANIC animals are not fed animal by-products there is no risk of mad cow disease to you or your family!
  • ORGANIC meat poses a low risk of carrying E.coli.

Not to mention the ethical reasons!

  • ORGANIC farms use renewable resources, conserve water and don’t require the growth, transporting, waste and use of bulk feed.
  • ORGANIC free-range animals are free to roam, socialise and show their instinctive behaviour 365 days a year.

There is no denying it…… ORGANIC meat IS unfortunately more expensive to produce and that is why it is more expensive at the counter. By paying that little bit more at the counter, you can sleep easy knowing that your money is going into the health of you and your family.  Knowing that you are making a difference to the lives of our livestock animals when you put your money where your ethics are.

You can even go one step further and choose your meat by choosing the farms that you trust.  Choosing farms that look after their animals humanely.  Choosing farms that protect their animals from stress all the way through the meat process.   Choosing to shop at local farmers markets where you can talk to the farmers who love their animals.

Why not choose one or two days a week for your family to go meat-free?  There are fabulous vegetarian recipes that will have you not even missing meat they’re so good!!!  The animals will love you and so with your health.

The most fabulous farm I have ever come across for ethically raising their animals is Pasture Perfect in Australia:

http://www.pastureperfect.com.au/organic

Have a good look around their website and their FAQs page.  You could not ask for happier, healthier animals!  Pasture Perfect are just about to open an online store so you can order directly from them.  I don’t eat much pork at all as I have always had trouble digesting it, but I can tell you this pork is DIVINE and no trouble on my stomach!  Their Chrissie hams are THE BOMB!!

I am sure there are many other fabulous farmers out there doing similar work.  I would love to hear from you about your favourites!!

PS Did you know that pigs have the cognitive ability of a three year old child and that chickens can recognise up to 100 different faces?  Amazing hey!

Chocolate

Featured

Those that know me also know that my life doesn’t exist without chocolate.  Chocolate is my sin.  Those that know me would be horrified to hear that I have been chocolate free for 3 weeks.  Sugar free for three weeks.  Well, not entirely.  The chocolate free part is true.  The sugar free is processed sugar free.  I have swapped it for agave syrup, for xylitol and for maple syrup.  These products have nowhere near the effect of spiking your GI levels that cane sugar has.

Considering I am not even craving chocolate I don’t know whether I am giving into my sin by making a chocolate torte tonight.  This is no ordinary chocolate torte but, if there is such a thing, a HEALTHY chocolate torte!!

I found a fabulous recipe for a double chocolate torte online, that I have adapted for my own.  Here goes!

Double Chocolate Torte
1 cup 70% dark chocolate in pieces
1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup of coconut flour
1/4 cup cacoa powder
1/2 teaspoon himalayan sea salt
3 eggs
1/2 cup agave syrup
1/2 cup rice bran oil
1 tablespoon lavender syrup  (you could also try orange zest or peppermint)

  1. Place ½ cup of the chocolate pieces in a food processor and pulse until the texture of gravel
  2. Pulse in almond and coconut flour, cacao powder and salt and process until well combined, about 10 seconds
  3. Add eggs to food processor and pulse again, then add in agave, oil and lavender syrup
  4. Pulse all ingredients together until smooth
  5. Remove “bowl” from food processor and stir in second ½ cup of chocolate chips using a spoon or spatula
  6. Transfer batter into a well oiled 10 inch springform pan
  7. Bake at 180° for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean
I am waiting for it to come out of the oven but OMG I can’t wait!

The secret to youth?

Featured

In my recent detox I have discovered Chia seeds, Maca root and Mesquite powder.  How did I not find these before??

Miranda Kerr swears by chia seeds as they have high levels of Omega 3, protein, fibre and antioxidants.  She snacks on them and alternatively makes them into a paste.  But you can just about do anything with them, from throwing a small handful into a smoothie to adding them like sesame seeds to your cakes and breads.

Maca root powder is AMAZING stuff!!  You name it, it achieves it!  It has long been known as the fertility drug of the Peruvians but it is not technically an aphrodisiac.  It works to regulate hormone production most notably involved with your adrenal and pituitary (an issue for me as I suffer from a microadenoma) glands and it boosts your immunity from within against both physical and mental weakening.

Finally, Mesquite powder.  This yummy caramel tasting gem holds a high amount of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc.  It is rich in the amino acid lysine as well which is an important nutrient needed in healthy cells.  Mesquite powder can be used in smoothies or instead of flour.  With it’s low GI it stabilises blood sugar levels.

I sprinkle these supplements onto my morning yoghurt and fruit as well as a dash of agave syrup and a teaspoon of LSA, or add them to my cacao smoothies.  So easy!!

Hey.. If Miranda Kerr’s doing it, why wouldn’t we???

Kale…The super food

Featured

I have recently discovered Kale.  This superfood is amazing!!

my-new-roots-kaleKale contains amazing levels of Vitamin A,  Vitamin B9 (folate), Vitamin K, alpha-lipoic acid and lutein.  Therefore, it’s an important food in the fight against stroke, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and depression.  It fights infections and regulates blood clotting.  In fact, research conducted by the Angiogenesis Foundation in Massachusetts suggests that kale may be effective in blocking angiogenesis, making it much harder for cancer cells to grow and multiply in the body.

Therefore, why wouldn’t we all include kale in our daily diets!!!

Here are two recipes for a breakfast smoothie that are just divine!!

Blueberry Banana Punch

1 banana

A handful of frozen blueberries

Half an apple

A small handful of kale

200mls of biodynamic apple juice

Teaspoon of chia seeds

Ice.

Whizz in blender.
