Now I’m in a small pueblo called Chapala (about an hour away from Guadalajara, Mexico) visiting my father. It’s a cute little town and suprisingly has quite a bit to offer. The other day we went to an organic market where I picked up some delicious ingredient’s and some sprouted tortillas, vegan apple bread, vegetables, samosas and various flavours of…

As someone who doesn’t eat meat, the first question I often get asked is ‘How do you get your protein’? The protein really is not a problem, I find it in all sorts of ways.

I’m a huge believer in the importance of eating fresh, local produce. Now that I’m in Brasil, tropical fruit is abundant and as I face my fruit phobias I’m exploring flavours and today I actually used an entire mango and turned it into a delicious salsa. I think I always knew Brasil would be the place that I would have…

I somehow knew that Brazil would be the perfect place for me to face my fruit fear, a phobia that has stayed with me since my infancy and only in recent years have I began to explore my fruity palette. It wasn’t until I was in Buenos Aire 2011 that I actually willingly at my first strawberry (very slowly) nibble…
