    Raw Plant-Based Christmas Hampers are here!

    Raw Plant-Based Christmas Hampers are here!

    You guys,

    This is pretty exciting!

    I've been working around the clock to create the most beautiful, the most delectable, the most special and the most festive hampers of your most healthiest dreams...

    How my days look recently:

    I wake up, get Lake ready for nursery, check the dehydrator, squeeze oranges, get high on smelling brandy, soak more seeds/ nuts/ dried fruits in said o.j. and brandy, blend up the Xmas mince pie 'dough' mixture, spend hours carefully forming the mince pie bases, check the dehydrator, run out of organic supplies, order more online or run (read: crawl with my 8 month bump) to the shops or Tanya's in Chelsea, chop/ blend/ mix/ spread all the ingredients for the grawnola, collect Lake from nursery and keep her entertained by seeing how many soaked almonds she can peel for me, answer questions about the hampers on social, look for another way to entertain a bored toddler, get her involved in sampling everything in the dehydrator (always regret this bit- she eats A LOT!), give Lake a bath, make dinner together, eat and clean up, blend up the Xmas pudding mixture, spend hours forming the puds while listening to Xmas tunes and checking out Lake's latest moves that she wants to show me and to try out for myself of course, do the longest bed time routine imaginable (probably due to a hyper child after dance party), then once she's singing happily to herself in bed at 9pm, I return to the most festively scented kitchen for the final and most peaceful hours left in the day.

    And honestly.. I love every single moment.

    Christmas is truly the most magical time of year and since I really don't know what life with two kids will be like, I wanted to make this Christmas the most satisfying, which very much involves satisfying all of your requests for Raw Organic Xmas Hampers that we've been getting since first opening Tanya's in 2014.

    Sedona Dehydrator is the one I use at home and the model you can get for 50% OFF!!! It's a very clever machine- all the settings are digital, you can divide the heating compartment into 2 drying chambers if you don't have much to dehydrate, the display is glass so you can keep an eye on your goodies, there're 9 trays so plenty will fit and you can make multiple recipes at once. It's a major bargain at this discount, so if you've ever considered a dehydrator, please please make the most of it!!! Use code SEDONA50 at checkout. 

     

    Also get some teflex sheets (non-stick sheets) for your dehydrator, you'll use them for everything from making crackers and fruit leathers to even things used outside of dehydrator like chocolate bark, roulades or even sushi. The 50% OFF discount only applies to the dehydrator itself but you can make a separate transaction later and use code TANYABDAY to get 25% OFF all other Tribest's products, including this one.

    My best tip for improving your digestion

    tanya maher on digestion

    If your digestion isn’t in order, the chances are you also experience at least two of these symptoms:

    -Bloating

    -Tiredness

    -Heart burn or indigestion

    -Food allergies

    -Nausea

    -Skin breakouts

    -Skin conditions like eczema, rosacea, acne or psoriasis 

    -Weight gains

    -Constipation or loose stools

    -Flatulence or belching

    -Parasites or Candida

    -Weak nails and hair

     

    Poor digestion is awful and sadly unless something is done about it, it may only get worse with time.

     

    Have you ever said...

    “I used to be able to eat anything” or 

    “I never had to exercise to stay in shape” or

    “My baby weight never went away” or

    “My digestion is not what it used to be”?

     

    [Personally, I’m guilty of all the above, especially when I have the below reference taken circa 2013.]

    tanya maher's body on raw food

     

    If you want something done about this digestion of yours (btw it’s not the same as metabolism- you can eliminate quickly and stay slim but it still doesn’t mean that you’re making the most out of your food and assimilating the goodness), the first thing you must do is begin eating consciously.

    Easier said than done? 

    Nope, it’s very very easy to do. Continue reading for my top tip that works every single time and is actually fun...

    But first I’d like to paint you a picture of what happens when you DON’T eat consciously.

     

    Tanya's pantry for The Uncook Book

     

    I bet there’s been a time that you’ve taken your sandwich to your desk and swallowed it so fast, you weren’t sure if you even tasted it, let alone felt any satisfaction. 

    You certainly were a bit annoyed at yourself for spending money on yet another lunch you don’t remember eating. 

    I mean- how did it disappear from your plate? Wait, maybe someone played a trick on you and you haven’t even taken a bite! Mmmm maybe not.

    Suddenly you feel bloated. Dissatisfied, irritated and bloated. Awesome combo.

     

    What actually happened when you swallowed that sandwich is that it got dumped into your stomach without any warning, without the host having a chance to get the space ready for it, in fact it squashed the host unconscious, confused the whole digestive system so it stopped operating altogether. Your body’s alarm went off to send signals of there being something wrong and the only way it knew to communicate that was by making you bloat.

     

    You didn’t respond to those cries so it gave you a headache.

    You blocked out the headache with a painkiller so it gave you visible red patches on your neck and breakouts on your chin.

    You covered them up with concealer so it gave you extra love handles you couldn’t cover up.

    You told yourself that next time you’ll just skip lunch to which you immediately felt an inflammation response.

    Now your joints hurt.

    WTF? Surely that’s got nothing to do with a sandwich!

    And why do you feel so tired when food is supposed to give you energy?

     

    Now let’s rewind for a moment and try that again...

    Holy Kale & Avocado from Tanya's raw food London cafe

    You unwrap your sandwich, feeling good within yourself that you got up to go out and buy it, feeling proud that you got at least a little movement into your day.

    You start to breathe deeper with that thought of gratitude.

    In turn you begin to relax and even get a whiff of the deliciousness you’re about to enjoy.

    You begin to salivate.

    You take a small bite and you chew chew chew.

    Your brain then sends the message to your stomach (the host) that food is coming so it starts to tidy up and pump out the welcoming mat (hydrochloride acid).

    The food slides down with joy, lands not in a dry sad desert but a fun pool of digestive juices.

    It breaks down effortlessly, without the need for your body to spend any more precious energy, so you feel like you have lots of energy to actually do some work.

    Minerals, nutrients and vitamins then spark into fireworks that go straight to the cells which need them most, while the remains take a different route towards easy elimination.

    No arguments, no confusion, no need for setting off any alarms, everyone knows their role and they get on with doing their thing so you can get on with doing your thing.

    So next time you’d like scene #2 instead, next time you’d prefer to feel alive, energised, relaxed, bloat free and happy within yourself for eating consciously, try this tip:

    Imagine that while you’re eating that sandwich, a hidden camera is projecting your every move onto a National News channel! Your face is on everyone’s screen for millions to watch you eat. 

    The Royal family watch the news too, you know :)

    P.S. I touch on the topic of digestion and often discuss it in depth at every single one of my workshops. You can bet that I'll be covering this topic in the next classes 'Easy raw lunches that kids will love' and 'How to eat for beautiful skin'.
