    Raw Breakfast Club is almost here!

    Raw Breakfast Club is almost here!

    Can you believe how close Christmas Day is?

    The idea of Christmas feels especially surreal to me this year, because not long after, Elliot and I will meet our daughter.

    I literally can’t believe I just said that.

    Each time the mini muffin moves inside my belly (ie. all day, every day, each minute, non stop, always), I’m in total amazement at the superpowers of my own body. There’s a real baby in there! Well maybe it’s an alien- it certainly feels like that at times- but then again the other day I felt a teeny tiny foot with five perfect little toes and fell even more in love with this living creation within me.

    So while I hear all sorts of stories about her coming for the world earlier or staying cosy for longer, I’m not going to plan any new workshops till we know for sure…

    That means that THIS Friday's Raw Breakfast Club is not only my final mini workshop for the year, it's the final indefinitely. OMG!

    If you're in London, it's the one morning you'd be glad you slipped out of work for!

    You will meet a bunch of super awesome like-minded people, receive a little Christmas gift from one of our partners, learn how to make living raw Christmas Mince Pies (and take the recipe home) and indulge on the most beautiful and nourishing flavours of this silly season!

    Take a look at the menu...

    The Winter Recipe Round-Up, No Dehydrator in Sight

    The Winter Recipe Round-Up, No Dehydrator in Sight

    The UK has seen such a gorgeous and long summer, that I still get shocked each time I walk outside nowadays.

    I forgot what it’s like to be cold and my lordy it is coooold!

    Winter is well and truly here, or so it seems, and right around this time is when I dust off the printed versions of my eBooks ‘Nourished- Comforting raw foods for winter‘ and ‘Festive- The best raw food Christmas recipes‘.

    I wanted to share with you a recipe from Nourished, which is the most perfect side to any meal, just like mashed potatoes, except there’s not a potato in sight. There’s also no starch. Or dairy. Or anything cooked or processed for that matter. Instead though you get a beautiful combination of nourishing seasonal ingredients to keep you balanced, comforted and immunised this winter.

    Oh and I thought I’ll compile a few other recipes, that were a big hit during last frosty season and share with you below. You’ll be happy to know that no dehydrator is required for any of them.

    There are also some epic recipes, that have been featured on the blog recently but not yet in my newsletters. Keep scrolling for the round-up from our four most recent Masters of the Month…
