As the outside temperature started dropping, the oven and steamer started increasing and I’ve been diving into orange veg county. A couple of sweet potatoes go a very long way in a green salad or mixed grain one.
The great thing is that the autumn harvest is packed with root veggies ready for you to dive into them, whether you’re steaming, roasting or stewing. They’re generally warming in nature and also happy looking, uplifting your plate and mood.

We’re beating the Monday Blues with Monday Greens and today I have a protein smoothie to energise you and repair you after a workout session. Even without the workout, you’ll still benefit from this blend.
Pomegranates are fantastic (one of my favourite fruit, and so are persimmons!) and we’re just entering their season! Bring them on! With a history of more than 5000 years, the pomegranate was originally found in Persia and Brought in Europe by the Spanish Colonists.

You can easily replace blackberries for any other fruit in this recipe, so just make use of what you have at home. For this messy looking sugar-free, vegan rustic blackberry galette I’ve used some elderberries too!

It’s DAY 8 of the 10-Day Bloom Launch Giveaway and I have a super special treat for you! Today’s prize is a mega sweet treat for you and two friends at Tanya’s, Chelsea’s amazing raw food eatery. Tanya Maher, the soul, and co-creator of the café, is a raw food chef fellow, that’s inspired many of us to dream bigger on what you can do with food and spread the message of healing and thriving on plant based living foods. And wait until you see the desserts! I love making them, but at the same time, I love having them ready to go and Tanya’s is the place to get them.

I chose to focus on this subject today, as Sunday is for most people a day of rest and reflection. Are you practicing gratitude in your daily life? When I wrote Bloom, I included the 7 principles of healthy living, which are the basis of achieving optimum health, but the most underlying one is probably gratitude.

Olly, the founder, is also a great friend of mine and I can tell you that he’s very passionate about what he does. The whole brand started in his kitchen some years ago and the bars are still handmade in Hackney to this day. I absolutely love that, and whenever I visit the production kitchen I feel like a kid in a candy store. The good candy! Hope you’ll enjoy today’s bundle! Happy days!

I discovered Ombar chocolates a few years back at a trade show and it was love at first sight.I love the company ethos – making sure the farmers providing the cacao are paid fairly, the flavours they put together, that fact that they use probiotics in their chocolates (remember the importance of good bacterias from yesterday’s email?) and the fact that the founders are some of the nicest people you can meet. I’m sure you’ll love this bundle! Read on…
