There are often those times after dinner, when you might find yourself with a little hankering for something sweet. Well, we might have just the thing for you! Raw, dairy free strawberry ice-cream stuffed cookies! These delicious little treats are a bite-sized raw oat and date cookie filled with a homemade strawberry and banana ice cream.. and what’s more, you won’t even need to use an ice-cream maker, so you can whip these up in virtually no time at all!
Fortunately for us, there is now a great selection of healthy breakfast cereals on the market to choose from, but I still love to get in the kitchen and prep my own batches of granola when I have time. For me, nothing beats the smell of home baking when you walk into the house and this just makes the whole kitchen smell absolutely incredible. The sweet aromas of the coconut are just heavenly!
Congratulations to everyone who participated in the Run Reigate 10k and half marathon yesterday! You should all be extremely proud of yourselves, that’s such a fantastic achievement! I don’t know about you, but whenever I go to these events it always really inspires me to get more into my running again! In case anyone is feeling the same way, today we wanted to share a little bit about one of our products that been very popular amongst runners. If you’re an avid runner, then you probably know about this already, but the product that we’re talking about today is BeetActive, which is a completely natural beetroot concentrate.
If you’re following us on social media, then you’ve probably noticed that we’re currently participating in Organic September, which is something that we’re all very passionate about. However, I know that many people have the views that eating healthy and organic food is extremely expensive. Yes, in some cases I guess that could be true.. but we wanted to show you that this doesn’t have to be the case all of the time. You can create simple, yet delicious and nutritious dishes for you and your family, that won’t require hours of work in the kitchen and use wholesome and affordable ingredients.
This recipe includes two things that we’re absolutely loving in store at the moment.. matcha and coconut! Matcha is an amazing superfood with many nutritional health benefits, but did you know that it doesn’t have to be limited to just making tea with? Matcha is actually an amazing ingredient to include into recipe such as protein bars, cakes, porridge, smoothies and in this case, coconut bites! I know that typically green tea can be associated with having quite an intense flavour, but when used in small quantities, I find the subtle flavours of matcha can actually work really nicely in sweet treats!
I’m sure that you’ve heard by now about the many wonders and uses of coconut oil, but have you heard about coconut oil teeth whitening? We’ve recently been trying out these coconut oil pulling kits from Coco Baci and wanted to share the thoughts of one of our guest bloggers with you. Coconut oil has numerous nutritional health benefits and using it for oil pulling has claimed to improve oral hygiene. These kits offer an all natural teeth whitening course, whereby you use a sachet of the oil mixture daily and swirl the oil around your mouth for 10-15 minutes before brushing. I know you might be thinking that 15 minutes walking around with coconut oil in your mouth seems like a rather long time, but you could do this whilst you make breakfast, get ready for work or take a bath and our blogger found it to soon become second nature.
