Raw Bannoffee Pie Slice Busy

There are some things that just go together perfectly, like nut butter and bananas. Or bananas and dulce de leche. Or dulce de leche and chocolate. Or chocolate and sweet vanilla cream. This dessert brings all of them together in a raw, vegan and gluten-free pie that is completely irresistible! But with no refined sugars and good whole food, living ingredients, this is also a pie you can feel good about indulging in.

Cottage Pie

When I was a kid it was a treat to order lunch from the tuck shop (or canteen). We’d write our orders on a brown paper bag and put our money in exact change inside, and drop it off at the tuck shop in the morning.  At lunch time we would pick up our brown paper bags with our orders inside.  Almost every time I would order some sort of pie: a meat pie, an apple pie that was topped with whipped cream and powdered sugar, or cottage pie.  Cottage pie was my favorite: a shortbread crust filled with meat, veggies and gravy, topped with mashed potatoes and baked to perfection. Yum.  I would use a fork and scoop out the top and filling and then eat the crust!

Sea Bakin’ Seaweed Snacks Review

When Sea of Change Trading Co. contacted me and asked me if I’d be interested in trying some of their seaweed snacks, I instantly said yes. I like sea vegetables and there are very good reasons why I should be incorporating more of them into my diet. They are great sources of bioavailable iron and iodine and I’m trying to increase my intake of both at the moment. Plus, they have good amounts of vitamin C, which increases iron absorption. They are also a good source of antioxidants and they could even have antiviral properties. So yeah, bring on the nori!

The Beyond Meat Beast Burger, with the works!

The Beyond Meat Beast Burger, with the works!

When I first heard that Beyond Meat was planning to release a vegan, gluten-free “beefy” burger last summer called the Beast Burger, I was instantly excited. I love burgers. I really do. But let’s be honest. There are few vegan burgers that really satisfy. There are few vegan burgers that you can really sink your teeth into. And there are even fewer vegan burgers that can stand up to the works. And while some seitan-based burgers may get partially there, for me they are out of the question because of the gluten. 

Now, “The works?” you may very well ask. Yes. The works.
