I move home in just under a month, and this move heralds not only the start of a new chapter for me personally, but also the start of a new chapter professionally. I’ve been running The Raw Food Coach for over a decade now, and it’s become very clear to me over the past few months, that the time has come to close some doors. It’s not been easy to make certain decisions, but it’s been absolutely necessary. There are other things I want and need to … Continue reading

KAREN’S SPARKLY PINEAPPLE COCKTAIL

This week’s recipe is a delicious favourite drink of mine and perfect for the festive period! I have always been a lover of sparkling drinks and realising that sometimes it is the “stuff” that surrounds our food and drink choices that is attractive is a huge help in letting go of less-than-healthy choices. And so it is that when I throw a party or am entertaining I LOVE to come up with new non-alcoholic drinks – usually based on fresh juices and sparkling water and I serve them in a beautiful glass. Tasty, refreshing and it even somehow tastes mildly alcoholic, this is one I will be enjoying again and again and 10/10 for ease and speed! EQUIPMENT Juicer, Strainer … Continue reading

This could take anywhere from 4-8 hours depending on the size and how dried your fruits are. When your dried fruits are ready, make your almond milk (it will take just 1 minute if using almond butter, … Continue reading
