Smokey Cheddah Cheese Ball

Nothing says the festive season like cocktail parties, appies, and festive Cheese Balls. Am I right? Slightly retro, mostly delicious and a star of the communal sharing table, might I introduce you to the "healthy" Smokey Cheddah Cheese Ball. This not only packs a powerful 1,2 in the fact that it's plant based but that it also has some natural…

Cauliflower hot wings

Ok guys, so it's almost like cauliflower wings are the new gateway to healthy comfort food. Winged, riced, mashed, they are everywhere.

why eating “good” is not the solution

Eating "good" or eating "bad" or even "better" is not is what is making us skinny, fat or whatever other adjective we choose to describe ourselves as. In fact it is just another way for us to put the name tag of perfectionism on our plate. Yes, there always is a food pun. The truth is that these barometers of…

Chocolate Tahini and Chickpea Cake

Healthy gut, healthy life...perhaps this is the truth. Often what doesn't go well with a happy gut and gut flora though is sugar. In fact it is one of the easiest ways to promote the growth of the "bad bacteria" and lessen the "good bacteria". But lets face it, the sweetness of life is just as important to overall health,…

Hair story…. what to do when it falls down

And when our body has different plans for us, it gives us a mega fuck you and revolts and well, sheds its skin. Nice…
