As a result, their gut flora, which is a large part of the … Continue reading Bean Paste Can Save Your Life
As most ancient cultures (and often common sense) the Yoga tradition recommends a clean, non-refined plant-based diet to stay healthy. Yogis know that animal sourced food is seen as a "low-value" food that drains us of energy and health. It makes us sluggish, and in the long run makes us ill. Modern science has vastly proven the ancient Yogic … Continue reading Nutrition – 1st of 5 Pillars of Yoga
A common question we get is what kind of food is the healthiest? Is it tomatoes or carrots, is it fish or chicken, nuts or beans, is it milk or soy milk? Raw or cooked? Carbs or proteins? The half-true answer to that is that it always depends on what you are comparing with, and … Continue reading The #1 health food
Made this Cherry Almond & Orange cake the other day inspired by the lovely lagallette its lovely to have on its own or in combo with for example breakfast like I did! I made some changes to the original recipe to fit gluten-free peeps and also used cherries because they were in season.

1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cardamom
1 dl coconut oil, melted
2/3 dl almond milk
2/3 dl Agave syrop
1/3 dl orange juice
Zest of 1 orange
2 tbsp Orange Water
1 cup cherries – used them because they are in season, but you can use plums, raspberries, peaches – your imagination is the limit!
- Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
- I use good durable silicone cake moulds – that way you don’t have to grease proof tins or worry…

What I like(d) about the Raw Food movement was that everything came freshly straight from the tree or the soil. At least 20 years ago! There is no better fridge then the tree, the best way to keep the nutrition. Today there are machines to make all kinds of fancy 'raw' food, even special chocolate … Continue reading Raw or Cooked?
Cooking is fantastic! Not only because it kills potentially harmful bacteria but also because some nutrients become more bioavailable. When you soak, cook, mash food, you help your digestion so that it doesn’t need to use strong stomach acids to break up the food to get the nutrients out, and therefore they are more bioavailable, meaning … Continue reading Cooking is as Great an Invention as the Wheel!
When I stopped eating meat I was called vegetarian. That was about 20 years ago. Today I would be called a vegan by most people. A vegan does not buy any leather products, nor use or eat anything that requires killing or hurting animals. I use all my old leather products until they are no … Continue reading Vegetarian, Pescatarian, Plantarian and All the Other -Tarians
