Breakfast Ice-cream

Breakfast Ice-cream

Ice-cream for breakfast? You can eat it all day long on a high raw, plant based diet

For the base blend: 3 frozen and 1 fresh banana with 1 tablespoon of almond butter and a heaped teaspoon of cacao powder

On the top blend 2 frozen bananas, 3 soft dates and 1 vanilla pod.

And for an extra health kick, drizzle some black strap molasses.

Black strap molasses will give you b vitamins, iron, calcium, magnesium, and great hair 🙂

Eat it guilt free 🙂

Note: Always make sure you use really ripe bananas (spotty skins) to ensure sweetness and optimal digestion.

Sweet way to start your day

Sweet way to start your day

Celery doesn’t really get a huge rap. People find it bland and often stringy, but juiced or blended into your smoothie those two factors are irrelevant.
Why bother you ask? Because it is seriously good for you – just make sure you buy organic.

Some of the health benefits include:
* Celery reduces inflammation. Great for joint pain, asthma and acne.

* It’s calming as it contains magnesium, so eat it to soothe your nervous system and help you sleep    better. A great snack to eat at night.

* It helps regulate the alkaline in your body and aids with digestion because of it’s insoluble fibre content.

* It contains “good” salts. Yes, celery does contain sodium, but it is not the same thing as table salt. The salt in celery is organic, natural and essential for your health.

* Raw organic, whole celery reduces high blood pressure.

Try some in your next smoothie.
This mornings breakfast smoothie contained:

3 sticks of organic celery
1 cup of frozen raspberries
3 large organic bananas
3 frozen organic bananas
filtered water.

I got the idea for this dish from my amazing friend Freelee, you can find her over at http://www.thebananagirl.com

Dinner for 2 this evening consisted of:

6 peeled and spiralised zucchini, placed into 2 bowls

Add as many sliced mushrooms as you like and put aside.

For the dressing blend:

1 large mango

6 small tomatoes

1 handful of fresh basil

1 handful of fresh coriander

1 small chilli

fresh lime (according to taste)

Blend well and pour over the 2 servings.

I like to keep my meals very simple, mostly inline with 80/10/10 principles but Tom likes things with a lot more kick.  For that reason I added 1/4 of an avocado and a sprinkle of Italian herbs to mine but for his I added 1/4 of red onion, sea salt, black pepper and a generous sprinkle of hemp seeds.
