Make Your Own Green Juice

Green juice! I love me some freshly made green juice. It’s the most effective way for me to consume dark green veggies and there’s nothing like homemade juice.

If you want to add more veggies and fruits to your diet, I definitely recommend you getting a juicer.Cold-press juicers that use high pressure processing are the best, so you can have the smoothest juice with the highest nutritional value. We have this Omega juicer, it’s quite the investment but I have absolutely no complaints and I know I’ll be using this for many, many years.

This blend combines organic spinach and apples with a hint of lemon for a smooth, vibrant juice. Here’s what you’ll need…

Lola’s Cupcakes Have Gone Vegan

Lola’s Cupcakes, the cupcake chain that has little shops and stalls all around London, has launched a vegan cupcake a couple of weeks ago. All vegans rejoice!

Passion fruit and coconut is the flavour and trust me, it’s delicious. The sponge is moist and the topping is smooth and not overly sweet. It’s decadent without making you feel too guilty for having a sweet treat. (I didn’t intend to rhyme!)


My Morning Ritual: Matcha Tea

If you follow me on Instagram you’re probably aware of my infatuation for matcha tea. Matcha is a powdered Japanese green tea that makes part of the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, which is a spiritual experience that embodies harmony, respect, purity and tranquility. What’s more, it has powerful health benefits and an amazing taste.

Being a powder tea, you are actually consuming the whole leaf, rather than just an infusion. It has become my morning ritual, much like coffee is for most people. I carefully scoop out the vibrant green powder (trust me, it’s really green) from its tiny container into a mug, add in hot water and stir. Remember to allow boiling water to cool or your matcha will taste bitter though.
