I can remember exactly when my obsession for raw treats started. I was working as an online health editor at the time and my colleague asked if I’d tried avocado chocolate mousse before. I was like, “Ew, what’s that?” As it turns out, I found it pretty amazing… I even made a 5 minute version of it here and, because I love it so much, I’ve made a paleo cake version here.
This emerald and ruby red raspberry delight is an anti-inflammatory, metabolism-boosting and antioxidant-rich liquid breakfast. Whip this up in less than 5 minutes and feel satisfied right up until lunchtime.
Those who know me would say that I’m a little short on patience. I want to get things done fast, I move fast and I eat fast. It’s something I’m working on – I have to consciously remind myself that there’s no rush to do things.
My lack of patience is also probably why I tend to make things that are either low on fuss, done in a relatively short amount of time, or with few ingredients – which is why this three-ingredient recipe instantly caught my eye. Yep, you read that right: three ingredients! It’s as easy as making a cup of tea. Seriously.
Who needs to buy a chocolate milkshake, thickshake or ice-cream drink concoction when this healthy smoothie tastes SO MUCH better and it’s good for you (you’ll be satisfying your chocolate craving while sneaking in some veggie goodness thanks to the baby spinach. Plus, blending the chia seeds makes them more easily absorbed in the body).
Who can’t resist a ‘dessert for breakfast’ recipe? This piece of goodness is from Prevention’s new Sugar Smart Diet book that contains loads of low-sugar recipes. Great healthy inspo if you’re trying to cut down on the sweet stuff. This Strawberry-Coconut Chia Breakfast is my favourite out of all of the recipes because it contains some of my favourite ingredients.
