The other day I decided to try and make coconut chocolate mint popsicles and they turend out… mmmm… okay, not great. They definitely lacked some texture and substance but that’s just how my food experimentation is. It’s all part of the journey. My original post which I shared on instagram (click here to view it) was a really simple recipe and…

I’m still down in Mexico and making my own food because this is not the most vegan-friendly place in the world, but that’s okay because I am educating and inspiring my new Mexican family about why I eat the way I do and show them the interesting and delicious creations I make for myself daily that are packed full of…

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. 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…

I’m a huge believer in the importance of eating fresh, local produce.

Upon my last little visit to my beloved Argentina I found myself in an interesting position. It was the first time I’ve really been there and was extra conscious about what I ate. I never really ate much meat there, but I did really enjoy the Argentine Dulce de Leche. When in Argentina (or anywhere really) I like to embrace…
