Healthy Chocolate Panforte Recipe

Healthy Chocolate Panforte Recipe

Healthy Chocolate Panforte Recipe Perfect for Christmas!   Panforte is traditionally an Italian cake containing fruit and nuts. So more or less, it’s kind of like a fruitcake – dense, moist, fruity. It originated in the Tuscan city of Siena somewhere around the thirteenth century. Here I’ve made a healthy version that doesn’t miss out on any of the traditional flavours, certainly has the dense quality but with a lighter feel in the tummy. My healthy christmas panforte recipe is also gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free. It’s the perfect healthy recipe for christmas! There’s minimal liquid sweetener

Almond Toffee Chocolate Bark Recipe

Almond Toffee Chocolate Bark Recipe

Almond Toffee Chocolate Bark Recipe   This clean eating recipe needs little introduction. I love almonds, I love raw honey and I love dark chocolate. Why not put them all together?! So what it’s made with natural raw honey, and I boil it first. It’s still a natural food that is made with love. It’s a super easy recipe that’s simple, yet certainly not plain! The children loved it so I started teaching them how to make this simple toffee and how it reminded me of toffee apples – of which the children have never tried. So you never know, we may make them

Rustic Rosemary + Hazelnut Torte [Gluten, Grain & Sugar Free]

Rustic Rosemary + Hazelnut Torte [Gluten, Grain & Sugar Free]

Rustic Rosemary + Hazelnut Torte [Gluten, Grain & Sugar Free]  Real Food Friday!   I really like how food can look imperfect yet still absolutely divine, appetising and stimulating to our senses. I’d had it in my mind to make some sort of tart – or torte – that wasn’t visually perfect, but more rustic and outdoorsy with a farm or orchard feel. It may seem odd to pair rosemary with chocolate, but if you’ve already tried this combo recipe from my Healthy Chocolate Delights eBook you’ll know how curious and moreish it is! The style of this nutty crust combined with rosemary, adds to the laid

Easy Raw Fudge Bites

Easy (and Healthy) Raw Peanut Butter Fudge Bites anyone? This recipe is super easy to whip up and doesn’t take long for the fudge to set. Chances are you’ve already got all the ingredients in your pantry, and there’s only five of them! I was playing around with some nut butters recently and decided to experiment. I’m so glad I did because these raw fudge bites have a wonderfully smooth texture and are so satisfying in small amounts! These fudge bites are dairy and gluten free, full of healthy fats and have a fructose free natural sweetener. They are so easy

Orange, Maca & Pecan Milk Chocolate Raw and Healthy ! So you all know by now (unless you’re new to MindBodyFood) that I love making my own raw and healthy chocolate with nutrient dense, organic raw cacao powder and butter (that’s sourced ethically and sustainably).

The best part is that my sugar cravings are gone along with my food addiction. I don’t obsess and worry over food any

Chocolate You Can Indulge In

Chocolate You Can Indulge In

Indulge in Chocolate – Yes You Can! Eating chocolate for me used to be a guilty pleasure. I was addicted to the fake euphoria I experienced with every massive sugar shot to my brain. It triggered my reward centre to release a hormone called Dopamine – I felt fine when I was eating chocolate. I even felt pretty fine after I ate chocolate. But about thirty minutes later I felt low, lethargic, irritable and disgusted – with myself and my lack of willpower; with my body and the excess fat I was carrying – the same fat I’d just fed a dose of creamy, sickly sweet chocolate to.

MY BRAND NEW EBOOK! Do you love chocolate, but always have this guilty feeling associated with it? Guilty pleasure. Guilty addiction. Equals shame. Eating chocolate for me used to be a guilty pleasure. I was addicted to the false pleasure I experienced due to the massive sugar high in my brain. It triggered my reward centre to release a hormone called Dopamine – I felt FINE when I was eating chocolate. I even felt pretty damn fine after I ate chocolate…. But then after a little while, I felt low, lethargic, irritable…. and disgusted – with myself and my lack of willpower; with my body and the excess

Macadamia Chocolate Brownie [Recipe]

Macadamia Chocolate Brownie [Recipe]

Chocolate Brownies, YUM! Oh come on, who doesn’t love a decadent chocolate brownie?! Raw or baked, brownies are actually quite versatile in the ways you can put them together. This recipe is actually created from a biscuit recipe that my Grandmother (who’s now 98) used to make for us when we were kids. She made them as a ginger cookie – sharp, crunchy and buttery. I’ve made them many times as gingerbread men with the children, and as a rich chocolate chip cookie dough. I’ve created several raw brownie recipes that I teach in my Raw and Healthy Chocolate Workshop and that we

Nutty Choc Granola Recipe

Nutty Choc Granola Recipe

Nuts for Chocolate Granola! I confess I’m a little late to the granola making party. Funnily enough I used to the love the cardboard boxed stuff years ago, and probably in retrospect had a mild addiction to the apple and cinnamon flavour. Granola wasn’t something I ever got around to making myself until a few weeks ago, after a rather inspiring episode of “Gordon Ramsey’s Kitchen” on the Food and Lifestyle Channel. We loved this recipe so much I’ve made several more versions with various nuts, seeds and spice combinations. I first ate it with greek yoghurt, then coconut cream, pure cream, and also

Today I have reached another milestone in life – I am now the big 40 !!  As many of you know from working with me, hearing me speak and reading my blogs and articles, my life has been an often dark adventure of much grief, much sorrow, and many years of self-abuse with food.   My twenties were dedicated to dieting and bulimia. My thirties were an intention to heal and find myself. And now, today, I begin my forties… healed, recovered, imperfect and always learning, striving to contribute to those I can serve with love, light, inspiration and hope. Thank you
