Everybody’s favourite superfood. Well, sort of. There are still a lot of people I know who won’t eat kale. And I understand. If you pick it up from the farmers market, take it home and munch on it, eeewwww!
If you do nothing with kale it is rather revolting. So, I take it you already know how it goes, it needs a bit of love. Nothing special. If you are eating it raw, just tear it up and pour a little oil over it and massage the oil in for a minute or two. You’ll notice the colour change – it becomes more green – a more energetic green.

I think I learn the most out of seeing what someone else does, rather than them telling me what I should do. I think it’s because I’m a hands on kind of person and doing sinks in better than reading.
I’ve gained a lot of insight from reading other healthy stars “My Day on a Plate” type articles, and I’m also very nosy so love to see how they work their day.
Anyhow, I figure someone should put them all in one place as they might be useful for other equally hands on people (and the nosy ones.)

I wish I could rap, I’d create a lil’ ditty about healthy lunch wraps. I suppose writing the word ‘ditty’ already means I am way past being able to write a rap… So instead I’ll just share the most varied and interesting wraps I’ve found around the www. (more…)
So if you follow me on Facebook, you’ll see I’m a bit consumed with macro bowls at the moment. Long story short, I “accidentally” drank too much wine and felt rather ordinary the next day (so you don’t think I’m a total alco – it was only 3 glasses of red wine – I’m such a lightweight these days that 3 glasses is enough to make me feel rubbish!). Anyhow at lunch time I was still feeling sluggish so thought it was time to see if my food could fix me.
I’d been reading about macro bowls for a while and had everything on hand so somehow found the energy to put it altogether. And it was so worth it. Not only did my smug factor go through the roof (even though husband was not around to witness it!), I felt exceedingly better. In under an hour after eating it. (more…)
I still have Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s cookbook River Cottage Veg Everyday from the library, I’ve extended my loan and I just can’t seem to give it back. What relevance does that have to a raw beet salad you ask?
Well, the lovely Hugh has a raw beetroot and walnut salad which is where the inspiration for this recipe came from. I have been wanting to do a raw beet salad for ages to see if I could really get into them raw. And the answer is yes. (more…)
