These recipe posts are long overdue, I’ve so busy I just couldn’t find the time to get them posted for my cheesey crew! My apologies, and in that, I am going to be posting some extra recipes as I’ve now had two events in which I’ve been sharing my passion for making plant-based (vegan) cashew cheese recipes and sharing them…

Many people come to me and ask about high protein breakfasts that are plant based and one of my personal favourites is using chia seeds which is known for it’s super food properties and complete protein profile and it’s the little seed that could. So I say, Choo-choo-choo-choose Chia seeds!!! They do need to be soaked or ground in order…

Rich & Creamy Dreamy Vegan Nice Cream I made this delicious high protein breakfast yesterday and it was to good not to share. The base was made from iced fruits, frozen coconut milk cubes, protein powder, cocoa and almond milk. I have a Ninja Pro blender so this mixed up pretty quickly so if you have a regular blender, blending…

I spent this last weekend helping out at the first ever Toronto Zouk Marathon and I was asked to help guide yoga sessions and provide some vegan nomz for the festivities. Naturally, I agreed and I made several different recipes to rise to the occasion. As it so happens, it was Canada Day weekend so I wanted to create something…

I’m heading to Verona to guide the yoga on a weekend retreat and decided I would prepare and pack something made with love to share with the guests. We actually have to adhere to a special diet, no salt, no sugar, no wheat based products, etc.. (I tend to do this anyway) so I made this yummy spread. I actually…

There is a new protein bar on the market, called PrOATein and it’s a pretty healthy bar in comparison to most but it is made using whey protein, so I was inspired to recreate the bar into little balls since I had some rolled oats/oatmeal at home, I wanted to use them to share with members of my 3 local…

Steamed Purple Sweet Potato and Cocoa Rolls

Here in Thailand they still serve a lot of Chinese food, stuffed pastries and oddly enough, stuffed white bread with colourful filling – What’s inside, I do not know but I don’t want to try to find out. My friend likes them but I don’t dare to try them. I know the dangers of food colouring. Steamed buns are typically…

I hosted an event over the weekend for a guided meditation followed by a Mandala colouring event.

This was a bit of an experiment (like all my recipes tend to be) but it turned out…

I was invited to my neighbour’s Birthday Fondue Party and as a vegan, I knew I needed to prepare something for myself. I mentioned zucchini bread to my neighbour and she almost swooned so I figured that was a great option. I’ve never tried or ever made zucchini bread though, so I looked up a few recipes online to see…

Quick & Healthy Quinoa Breakfast

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. Quinoa (pronounced: Keen-wah) for example is an excellent and complete source of protein that is incredibly nutritious. Here in Brazil, I bought myself some organic…
