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.

Macro Bowl

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. Read 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. Read more

Raw Thai Coleslaw

Once the weather warms up just a little I get all excited and think RAW! My husband is a big fan of coleslaw, sadly mostly of the variety that comes in a plastic container from the supermarket. But watching him eat it every week always makes me think a) I should really make it for him, b) how much sugar is in that dressing, c) I wonder if he’d eat a raw version and d) gosh he’s spunky (ok so I’m not really thinking that – I am truely not one of those gushing wives, just thought I’d throw it in as he sometimes reads these to see what I’ve written about him…oops now I’m busted.)
