CHEATERS GUIDE TO GUACAMOLE

A Cheaters Guide to Making Guacamole

Hello everyone

Who loves guacamole? Me!

There are a few variations in all the recipes out there including this one. Again, it takes no time and is something the whole family can enjoy.

Whats in the guacamole?

Onions
Pickled hot peppers
Tomatoes
Avocado
Organic apple cider vinegar
Olive oil
Pepper

How to make

Roughly chop up the onion, chilli’s and tomatoes into small pieces. Then peel and core your avocados and add it to the mix. Drizzle some olive oil and apple cider over of the mix. Add a little pepper and then start fork mashing until its the consistency you would like it (I like it chunky. Once all the ingredients are thoroughly mashed together, serve it up with your choice of crackers and veg. Am addicted to the Mary’s Gone Cracker’s range.

EASY! DELISH! HEALTHY! and totally VEGAN!

SWEET SLICE OF LIFE

A Sweet Slice of Life

Hello lovelies

Yesterday I looked through my pantry, tossed a few items on the kitchen bench and started mixing up a power slice that was sweet enough to satisfy my sugar craving.

Until yesterday, I was a vegan sweet slice making virgin and got the idea from something similar that I saw earlier that day in the Wholefoods store. The slice took me literally 5 minutes to make and turned out tasting like the best muesli bar I have ever had! It’s also completely vegan and almost completely raw.

So whats in it?

Oats
Chopped almonds
Pumpkin seeds
Organic chia bran
Organic flax meal
Organic dried cranberries
Organic dried blueberries
Organic agave nectar
Organic cashew butter
Organic Coconut butter
Water

Simple instructions on how to make

In a bowl, mix in oats, chopped almonds, pumpkin seeks, chia bran, dried blueberries, dried cranberries and coconut butter. Then add in agave nectar, cashew butter and water to the consistency you would like it. Once you have thoroughly mixed all the ingredients together, simply transfer it on to a baking sheet, wrap it up and stick it in the fridge. It should be ready to eat in 1-2 hours.

Measurements aren’t provided as I don’t measure the quantities myself. I just put in how much I like of what ingredient based on my taste. On that note, you don’t have to used these exact ingredients. You can definitely mix up the fruits and try different butters if you don’t like coconut or cashew.

Enjoy.

TEETHING BABY ANYONE?

The biggest challenge this week for us has been dealing with my not so happy teething bub. It’s her 1 year old molars so I bet they do hurt. Poor little squirt.

I have been told that kids tend to loose their appetite when they are teething among other things which has definitely been the deal for us. My only advice through this ordeal is to not give up on trying to feed them food and give them fluids. Preferably foods that are healthy and soothing for their teeth like watermelon!  I served up some watermelon for afternoon tea and looks like it worked a treat 🙂 I will definitely let you know if I do come up with anymore bright ideas.
