Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and I’m all for variety in this meal. Most of the days I consume smoothies, acai bowls, overnight oats and chia pudding or avocado toast for breakfast. However, some days I just feel an uncontrollable need to eat something spicy and that’s when I cave in and make something like I did today.
In no ways am I saying that you should restrict this dish for breakfast. Have it for lunch or dinner by all means.

This pasta makes a quick and delicious midweek dinner. The pesto is very easy to make and goes really well with mushrooms and courgette but you can add any other veg you fancy.
For non-vegans, this pasta would also go really well with prawns.
The best thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to cook the sauce, which normally is the longest process.
It really is very easy and so delicious!

A new world is upon me! I discovered cashew based sauces and nothing will ever be the same.
Was I skeptical about this? Yes. Was I proven wrong by how good, deliciously creamy and cheese tasting the sauce turned out? 100%.
Without further ado, here’s how to turn your ‘cheesy’ dreams into a vegan reality.
- Your favourite pasta (for 2-3 portions)
- A bunch of asparagus
- Mushrooms (as many as you like, there is no right or wrong here)
- Olive oil
- Lots of pepper
- 1 shallot/onion
- 1 cup cashews (soaked over night for best results)
- 1 cup plant based milk
- 2 garlic cloves
- 4 table spoons inactive yeast flakes
- gulp of olive oil
- 2 table spoons soy sauce
- a sprinkle of fresh parsley
- 1 lime/lemon (zest and juice)
- half a shallot (optional)
- Lots (and I mean LOTS) of ground pepper
Step 1: Cook the past as instructed

Scientists have created an “artificial womb” in the hopes of someday using the device to save babies born extremely prematurely.
So far the device has only been tested on fetal lambs. A study published Tuesday involving eight animals found the device appears effective at enabling very premature fetuses to develop normally for about a month.
“We’ve been extremely successful in replacing the conditions in the womb in our lamb model,” says Alan Flake, a fetal surgeon at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia who led the study published in the journal Nature Communications.
“They’ve had normal growth. They’ve had normal lung maturation. They’ve had normal brain maturation. They’ve had normal development in every way that we can measure it,” Flake says.
Flake says the group hopes to test the device on very premature human babies within three to five years.
“What we tried to do is develop a system that mimics…

Nowadays, many people are always on the run and in a rush and the majority think “eh, I’ll just have a cup of coffee for breakfast.” That’s not an actual breakfast guys!!!!
Breakfast should be composed of protein (eggs are the most common), whole grains (oats, whole grain bread, etc), a healthy fat (avocados, coconut oil, olive oil) and a side of fruit. Proteins and whole grains will prevent you from feeling hungry in an hour, your body will take longer to process it and it will greatly aid in your concentration.
There are many benefits for eating breakfast especially if you are trying to lose weight, you should NEVER skip it. Here are the most common benefits:
1. It helps maintain your blood sugar, thus keeping you energized and keeps away the hunger throughout the morning. This will help you avoid those impulsive-mid-morning snacks.
2. It helps you reduce…

I love Curry! The balance of mildly sweet coconut and spicy curry flavors are so warming to my soul. We get fresh organic fruits and veggies delivered every other week, so I’m always looking for ways to incorporate lots of vegetables into one dish. Curry is the perfect dish for that.
This dish incorporates the use of local vegetables as well as essential oils. I used doTERRA black pepper, cilantro and lemongrass essential oils for this recipe. Certain doTERRA oils are safe for internal applications. You can use these oils in recipes for cooking or baking to replace fresh or dried herbs and spices. I was fascinated by the potency, fragrance and aroma in the oils. They transformed the dish, and I was immediately reminded that oils in such a pure and concentrated form is not only a practical option, but better for the environment.
I hope you enjoy this…
