THE PERFECT HEALTHY HOMEMADE SWEET VEGAN CHICKPEA CURRY RECIPE

September 9, 2016

image1Having been away the last three weeks, in between moving countries, the one thing I missed most (apart from the dog and my love of course…) is my own cooking. We moved to Ireland on the weekend and so far the weather has been wonderful… until today where the wind and rain have taken center stage. So a heart warming bowl of homemade curry was just what was needed. However, with a lack of any curry power in the house I had to improvise with whatever was on hand, and it came out like a sweet and perfect curry with all the right flavour tones.

WHAT IS CACAO – & simple ways to use it

July 12, 2016

CacaopodsbeansnibsDid you know that chocolate CAN be good for you and you can even eat it to help support your weight loss journey… I know, thank me later. Real chocolate, Cacao (pronounced ka-kow), actually comes from the beans of the Cacao fruit (yes chocolate is derived from the cacao beans which are grown inside that white flesh in the pods above). Chocolate becomes unhealthy when you start to alter and process cacao, such as heating and processing, as it destroys most of the health promoting nutrients and anti-oxidants – which is why you want to opt for raw ‘cacao’ over processed and heated ‘cocoa’ products.
