A guest post by Michelle Aurora Hebbard...
I am a raw enthusiast, urban green lover, smoothie slurper and a grateful explorer of conscious awakening, and life. I will try anything once... so long as it is kind to our bodies, kind to each other and kind to our planet :)
The thoughts I have shared in this review are a compilation of what I totally dig right now in the world of raw. I hope you enjoy, and most importantly go out and find out for yourself and let me know your thoughts!
Hellllooooo my new favourite raw snack!
Wow! Oh my gosh! Snacks shouldn’t taste this good!
The moment I placed a delicate Raspberry Maca kale chip in my mouth I was blown away by how fruity they are, in fact they’re almost juicy. The decadent combination of kale, raspberry, maca, coconut palm sugar and cacao butter is kind of like crunchy, juicy and melty heaven all in one, and the unusual combination of a vegetable with a sweet coating is like nothing I have ever tried before. But I like it, I really like it!
The alchemists at InSpiral have really outdone themselves. I do believe I have found my new nutrient abundant treat AND my new way of enticing friends to join me in eating raw!
Now the only question is how am I ever going to stop myself from eating them? No need, I just bought myself two more tubs! You have to try these for yourself
to really get what I mean.
More fun than I expected from a box!
I don’t have any little ones running around me here in my very urban home in East London, but this box was so cute and contained such a delightful kit to make quick, easy and healthy chocolate I couldn’t resist. So I had a fun Sunday afternoon chocolate making workshop knowing that I was the only one to lick the spoon!
It really couldn’t be more easy to make raw chocolate at home. The packets are all easily labeled, perfectly measured (something I have a challenge with normally figuring out how much solid cacao butter turns into the melted variety I need), and the whole thing is designed to be quick, fun and low level mess. The instructions are super easy, and everything I needed was provided including little paper cups to pop the chocolates in. I decided to use my chocolate mould, and also added some vanilla powder and hazelnuts.
If you’re wondering if your kids will go for raw chocolate let me tell you that the smell of the melting cacao butter alone will be enough to send your kids wild! I was drooling just from that, and it was only the first step! I love that Choc Chic gives you more cacao powder than you need with a sweet little tip on how to make yourself some hot chocolate with it! What a yummy idea, don’t mind if I do. I love this box! It’s definitely not just for kids, but I know what I’ll be getting my nieces for Easter this year
Oohoo I finally got a chance to try out the beast –
Up until now I have been a centrifugal gal so this is pretty exciting stuff, and this is the crème del a crème of this kind of juicer! Masticating juicers break through cellulose to get you all the nutrients from the vegetables and fruit, and the two spirals in this Green Star juicer really mash through the fibre to get you the goodness! Meaning that you can consume lots of veg in a really easy to digest way. Double yay!
I love how quiet it is, and as I added the kale, cucumber, melon, ginger and apple the aroma of the juice touched my nostrils in the most delightful way. It only has a small opening so you need to chop things into small chunks and be patient as you ease each piece in gently. It is easy to clean as long as you do it straight away so the juice doesn’t set. It’s a beautiful machine and I can see what all the hype is about.
If you’re ready for a serious, nutrient preserving juicer, which produces maximum juice and the driest pulp, Green Star Elite could just be what you’re looking for!
When I started my raw journey I was always wondering what the difference between smoothies and juices was. If you’re wondering too check out Tanya’s Blog on this very subject here
