Screen Shot 2014-09-20 at 21.25.07

I’m not a recipe girl .. in fact I could think of nothing worse then writing out what I make … literally my fingers are cramping now anticipating a recipe documentation .

HOWEVER .. this concoction was worthy of a share .

as a non-dairy lady who cant eat coconut (hey swollen face!) my ice-cream availability is limited .

until I stumbled upon a blog called

VEGGIE DESSERTS

and saw miraculous things like

Roast Dinner Waste Cake (Maple Cinnamon Cake with Carrot, Parsnip and Potato Peelings)

and

Cucumber and Mint Cupcakes with Rose Water Buttercream

i know wizardry .

and finally the inspiration was

Cauliflower and Chocolate Ice Lollies with Pistachio Dust

CauliflowerChocolatePops-682x1024

as i didn’t have basically anything that was required .. i made my own .. ..

LADIES AND GENTLEWOMAN I GIVE YOU

Unicorn Elixir … I Mean Dairy-Free Golden Milk

Golden Milk … 
it sounds delicious right ?! am i right ?!? 
Initially upon learning of this Elixir I assumed it was the MILK OF UNICORNS (naturally).. because you know that sh*t will give you super powers .. 
Nay (see what i did there?!) it is in fact an Old Ayurvedic Recipe used as an anti-inflammatory “Beauty Tonic” -Hello! and overall healthful drink . 
on a scientific note the Golden Ingredient – The PUN QUEEN IS BACK!! sorry anyway the main ingredient TURMERIC has recently come to the forefront of western health because of its many benefits 
Image
 
Including But Not Limited To: 
 
-dementia prevention
-cancer prevention 
-natural anti-inflammatory
-fighting colds / flu’s 
– assisting in insulin stability (helpful for diabetics) 
-stimulates gallbladder – in turn aids digestion and weight loss 
– natural liver detox 
 
so its a good’n 
But the Original Recipe from Ayurveda contains Dairy , which would have been fine because of the purity and freshness of milk back in the day (Imagining an old lady shaking her walking stick!?!?) but not so much now
 
so i’ve devised the dairy free alternative .. 
 
You’re welcome 
 
+Yogi’s take note , because it lubricates the joints its great before classes to aid flexibility 
 
RECIPE 
 
1/2 tsp. turmeric powder (less if fresh root) 

1 cup milk substitute (rice , almond, oat whatever go crazy!) 

1/3 cup water 

1-2 Tbsp. coconut oil (optional but helpful for the flu-ey people because its of antibacterial properties)

raw honey/stevia/maple syrup to taste

ALSO PLAY AROUND WITH THE AMOUNTS OF TURMERIC and sweetness.. when you hit that perfect personal preference this is friggin delicious 

Boil water and turmeric in small saucepan over medium-high heat for 8 minutes (the turmeric must be fully cooked if not powdered ). Meanwhile, bring the milk and coconut oil to boiling point in a separate pan and remove from heat. Combine the two mixtures and add sweetness of your choice .

How To Travel Like A Genius : Supplements And That Bridesmaids Scene

How To Travel Like A Genius … 101 

so i’ve just done a long haul flight .. 23 hours all up .. i do this maybe 2-3 times per year .. so my friends …i am a F*cking star at travelling , and have met every kind of traveller possible .

 Screen Shot 2013-08-23 at 05.39.36

Firstly i would like to mention, you can take as much food as you want on the plane , you can make your meals at home and take them onboard long as they arent a liquid over 100ml .. I take vegetables, fruit and salads , you’re not obligated to eat plane food , this really confuses me when people are like ” ugh i feel bad I had to eat plane food , you know how disgusting that stuff is !” yehhh i do .. so do you apparently , but the steward must have held the air-marshalls gun to your head and stuffed that rock hard bread roll down your throat .. because i see that happen so much .. What the F&ck ??!?

so take apples, berries, salads, granola , vegetables.. for christ sake take half the health food store , you’ll feel so much better for it and i promise no one will blink an eye, people will just be like .. dammit i wish i had brought delicious food, whilst eating a curry in a foil dish that looks like a warmed up turd .

Now thats off my chest .. here are some supplements for every Traveller

The Nervous Traveller 

Screen Shot 2013-08-23 at 05.35.13 

Magnesium 

AKA the calming mineral .. its key in relaxing your muscles physically as well as your brain , and is so beneficial to sleep its retarded , this is good for the flyer who needs to neck 4 vodka mini bottles before you’ve even sat down .

dr hyman writes about it here http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-mark-hyman/magnesium-the-most-powerf_b_425499.html

 

The Sleepless Traveller 

Screen Shot 2013-08-23 at 05.32.13

Melatonin 

cant sleep on planes? or want to get sleep aligned with the timezone you’re about to arrive at? melatonin is your best friend , melatonin is a hormone naturally occurring in the body and regulates the sleep – wake  cycle of your body . it allows for more seamless adjustment to timezones

The “I Look Like Shit After A Long Haul Flight ” Traveller 

Screen Shot 2013-08-23 at 05.29.08

Green Supplements 

dehydration , lack of oxygen and lack of nutrients are to blame for this one .. which is why you should take as many leafy greens on the plane with you . but taking a Greens Supplement will do wonders, they also keep your digestion detoxing so you wont get bloated from the pressure of eating food so high up!! plus it will give you some added boost and energy .. think something with barley grass (alkalising) spirulina (energising) and Chorella (detoxing) .

The Blocked Up Traveller 

 Screen Shot 2013-08-23 at 05.48.11

Magnesium Oxide 

i had to add this one , its disgusting yes .. but the amount of people who ask me about this one … if i had a penny!

different to magnesium supplements (please don’t confuse them :I) , magnesium oxide (Milk Of Magnesium) is a bowel supplement .. not a laxative as such as all it does is bring oxygen and moisture back to the digestive tract allowing for proper elimination naturally (no running to the bathroom required) it is really important to be eliminating especially if you choose to eat the plane food (silly) because you’ll need energy when you’ve compromised your body due to  changing your eating habits, exotic foods , timezones, and lack of routine .. so this will be a game changer .

The Stomach Bug Traveller 

Screen Shot 2013-08-23 at 05.01.48

Probiotics + Colloidal Silver 

there is always one person you know (its probably you), who steps on a plane  gets sneezed on by an old dude and rubbed by the snotty fingers of the child sitting next to you .. and boom you’re out with either flu or gastro , people have come to accept these travel bugs as just a natural occurrence of air travel . it needn’t be so , first probiotics .. the good bacteria in your body , when strong will fight an win against almost ALL bacteria, infections and germs so keep those little men strong and take probiotics throughout the flight .

secondly another line of defence is colloidal silver (in spray form) is activated silver suspended in water which when sprays acts as a barrier between you and any bacteria and germs .. i spray my blanket and chair as well as myself (like a shower of tiny jewellery ) .. or better yet when the mother isn’t looking .. spray the sticky child next to you , then hide under your blanket and pretend its a fun game .

The Bad Circulation Traveller 

Screen Shot 2013-08-23 at 05.07.35

Garlic supplements 

Swelly legs, tired face, stiffness and tingling .. yeh that would be you and your shitty circulation , they say most people should take aspirin when flying not just to prevent from DVT (deep vein thrombosis)  but to just assist the body in circulating your blood (and water) when put under the strain and literal pressure of high altitudes . but you don’t need to take aspirin .. Garlic is one of the best anticoagulants in the world , its been used for thousands of years, and naturally aids circulation , and has similar (sometimes clinically proven to have better) effects of circulation when flying.

Finally , the usual tips, drink loads of water, get up and walk , and finally enjoy that you have however many hours to sit and think about fun stuff or watch some shitty films . p.s another plus when you bring your own food with you, is you get to use the bathroom whilst everyone else is being served dinner… and we know what the bathroom is like when 100 plus people get fed toxic high shelf-life airplane food.. so enjoy your fresh as a daisy toilet time before the masses tarnish it .

Tummy tips! From celebrity nutritionist Kim Snyder…

Screen Shot 2013-05-18 at 10.59.45

Feeling tired?

Skin looking greyish? Eyes lost their twinkle?
And how is that tummy of yours… Bloating? Burping…?

Rest assured you are not alone!

Digestive health is one of the most common yet under studied areas in modern medicine, yet it is one of the key systems in creating energy and feeling beautiful!

Its lucky we have wonderful tummy experts like Kimbery Snyder, author of ‘The Beauty Detox Solution’ for tips on how to lose the food baby and renew our sparkle.

tumblr_m5w8leVmCM1qevqz6o1_400

Working with the likes of Fergie, Hilary Duff and Drew Barrymore, she knows a thing or two about how to give ourselves an energy kick, shed some fat and glow from the inside out – all without crazy calorie counting or cutting carbs.

“The less energy we tie up in digestion, the more energy we can “unlock” to spread through our bodies and confer beauty benefits” she says.

So what are some of her tummy tips to get that gorgeous glow?

1. You are not a tiger – don’t eat like one!
So many people are eating animal proteins every day, sometimes for 3 meals a day! Our stomachs just aren’t designed to tolerate that much. Take it easy on the steak and kidney pie and opt for veggie options when available. For meat lovers, this can be hard at first, so a good habit to start is meatless Mondays 😊 every week!

2. Alkaline first!
Before any meal, try to have some high-fiber alkaline foods like raw carrot sticks or a garden salad. This will ensure you’re getting your fiber needs, but more importantly, will help to balance your ph balance before you load up on saucy, starchy or meaty meals which are very acidic for our bodies.

3. Skip breakfast
Yes, that’s right!
Well, maybe that’s a bit extreme… But
eating breakfast like a king and dinner like a pauper is a health myth… and its high time everyone stopped forcing breakfast into their mouths to “kick start their metabolism”
Our bodies didn’t evolve like that. Breakfast should be eaten when we first feel hungry in the day, not because cereal companies are telling you to chow down corn flakes at 7am.
You will have more energy if you actually delay your morning meal until you are feeling hungry – when the best thing to eat is fruit, a green smoothie or a fresh vegetable juice!

One look at Kim and its easy to see how this way of eating has its beauty benefits…

Her signature glowing green smoothie recipe is a big hit in LA, see the recipe below and watch your inner beauty shine through 😊

564px-AustralianGreensLogo.svg

Ingredients:
4-5 large handfuls of leafy greens – Kim recommends romaine lettuce, kale and spinach
Parsley or Coriander (if taste doesn’t bother you – very detoxifying)
1 liter of water (filtered is best!)

1 Apple (cored)
1 Pear
1 Banana
Juice ½ Lemon
1 cup Ice

Instructions
Place ingredients in a big blender (the more powerful, the better and more appetizing your smoothies) – water and greens first, blitz, then add fruit and ice.
Blend until smooth.

Enjoy!

Tip – use seasonal fruits – if apples aren’t available, substitute with peaches or whatever is lying around! Fresh is best.

Model Come Raw Foody Lets us Know Her Secrets ( Interview with Alex Glenday)

alexglenday

You know that ol’ saying Never trust a (skinny) i say fat chef … I always think that when people give me advice on nutrition or beauty tips .. and they look hmm how to put this politely a little less of what I would like to look like (its hard to sound succinct when you just want to say sh*t hey!)

However when i meet someone beautiful and radiant i literally want to climb inside them and find out everything they do , eat and rub on themselves.

This goes for Alex Glenday -Model, Raw Foodist , photographer , traveller .. somewhat entrepreneur .. this list could go on for a while . She’s walked for the likes of Paul Smith and Julien Macdonald and you’ve probably dribbled over her editorials in magazines …

But you cant disregard the facts , she’s beautiful and talented and full of energy .. because how the F8ck is she doing it all ? I found out what she does, her secrets (YHUSSS!!) and inspirations

What do you do? & what lead you to doing it?

I am busy with a couple of projects at the moment. I like to categorize those under two different fabulous f’s- the one is food the other fashion.  In fashion, I have reached my tenth year of modeling, a decade long journey that has taken me round the world, Asia, Europe, Africa and America and left with me with a little suitcase of essentials which I will get to later… more recently I have been dabbling deeper into photography.  After living in New York last year I returned to the summer in Cape Town South Africa, where I grew up, to start some new chapters in my life.  Here is my first published editorial: (http://www.afashionfriend.co.za/issue/aff-issue-35/nomadic-jewels)

I have been working with the brilliant photographer, Ulrich Knoblach on a book that he is making, as his illustrator, painting naked ladies frolicking around South African Landscapes in gentle watercolors.

salad_wrap_460_wide-1

Food has been the most capacitating thing as a model, who must be in good shape.  An unending development which has left me with some simple solutions to energy and indulgent satisfaction.  I have wanted to share my discoveries with all my loved ones and now anyone who will care to taste creations I have made.  I started a raw food and yoga detox retreat, the ‘RAWreTREAT’ (http://rawretreat.withtank.com/) on a fruit farm in South Africa with a childhood friend.  This is on hold as the winter months close in, and a new business venture in the form of ridiculously delicious fine dining pop up dinners has resulted:  ‘Forage To Feast’, focusing on organic, wild and local foods that are perfectly combined, into delectable dishes.   Dinner parties in awesome locations with good live music, have a look at the concept here: (http://www.foragetofeast.com/).  I am also in the process of launching a company with my organizationally savvy sister, to bring Kombucha to the main stream market in South Africa and potentially for export in the future (http://www.brewkombucha.co.za/.)

What’s your healthy little secret?

You should combine your food perfectly! Of course it helps to eat all the right things, but if you get them in the wrong combinations, you create a digestive backlog which leads to a build up of waste and how can you be purely beautiful if you aren’t clean? Also don’t be scared of the right fats, they are great for skin and hair and mobilize bad fats and make them move on out! That is the best secret in terms of losing weight. An Avocado a day is great! – Just make bloody sure you combine properly. Look at the helpful food combining chart which Beth posted before, to see what I mean.

HAIR HELP-OILS FOR HAIR TYPE & APPLE CIDER IS A STRIPPER

 

 

 

things I learnt tonight …

1. what oils work best with what hair types as both masks and just general upkeep

2. its surprisingly fun making little kawaii girls with squiggly hair

Screen Shot 2013-04-06 at 22.40.23

so find your little lady and get some organic oil .. you’ll find you will use less conditioner and you’ll start working with your locks .

now for the poo .. shampoo ..

I thought I would try this little organic natural approach to shampoo , mainly because I ran out of shampoo . and Im lazy like that

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR RINSE 
1 cup apple cider

2 cups filtered water

soak your hair with vinegar water .. mmm stanky

leave on for 15 minutes ..

rinse

AND WTF YOUR HAIR IS SUPER SHINEY !!

 I honestly couldn’t believe it , the alkalising apple cider strips all the greasy residue off the fair follicles and leaves glossy mane .

MAKE ONE TOOOO 

Whip it Whip it real good..

moisturisers can be greasy and sloppy and expensive .. so i decided to make my own .. and considering i am nay good at cooking .. i needed something easy and simple .

I LOVE COCONUTS .. but the oil is hard to manage as most of it drips all over the floor and then when it solidifies and you try and claw at it most of it pings around the room or you end up punching the bottom of the jar .. so i give you hand friendly coconut WHIPPED oil moisturiser

Screen Shot 2013-03-19 at 14.33.48ingredients :

cold coconut oil

blend it for a few minutes on high till it turns into soft buttery goodness .. add essential oils or scents and keep in a cool place.. just re-blend if it gets sad and melty . you are welcome xx

HERE read about how good coconut oil is for your skin courtesy of The Huffington Post

 

FLU-ck YOU

ive recovered from the flu .. it took a good 38 hours .. but usually it takes me about a week .. i owe it to these little rascals :

Screen Shot 2013-03-13 at 17.35.02

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR : just drink shots.. everyones always attempts to make a sweet tea.. apple cider smells like feet and will always taste bad when not on salad BUT it akalines the body and has lots of potassium for all the sweating you’re doing from your fever and starts healing tickly throats

PINEAPPLE: sore throat king has bromelain in it a powerful enzyme that tests have shown to be better than medical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory’s so will ease your throat and soothe your sinus’

GINGER : its an obvious one all round good guy for your immunity .. one tip is to have it as raw as possible.. even though everyone puts it in tea its actually better in a juice because of the enzymes that break down in boiling water

GARLIC: is your friend i ate 2 .. yes 2 (i could kill a vampire from a mile away) garlic BULBS !! not cloves BULBS its a blood thinner aka natural aspirin so will help headaches . stimulates the immune system and is a very powerful man repeller.. i mean nasal decongestant

I NEARLY FORGOT COCONUT WATER!!!! because you must keep hydrated and sometimes water is boring .. plus all the other stuff its good for .. and if you sit near a radiator and close your eyes you can sometimes pretend youre on a tropical island .. sipping coconuts

i know its all quite obvious .. i was desperate to make a little dancing man out of that bulb of ginger .. so im being self indulgent . bye bye flu xx

QUICK HOMEMADE ALMOND MILK

Lord knows almond milk is delicious , but loooong to make ,requiring cleaning up (icky yucky) and a muslin cloth .. who has one?? i once attempted making it with a stocking (enough said)

And buying it although not retarded expensive is still money from the pocket , also some nights when ive run out and i want a late night tea.. I’m like S**T.. then fell upon this … the easiest method all you need is a blender !QUICK HOMEMADE ALMOND MILK

Ingredients:

WHITE ALMOND BUTTER 2 Teaspoons (biona is a good brand)
3 CUPS OF WATER 

*also add your preferred sweetener Stevia, Agave, Honey , sugar to taste .. maybe a little vanilla extract?) 

ANNNDDD BLEND .. its done

(naughty) it alkalises the Ph level of your skin and firms up your dermis ( i cant say skin again or i’ll have said it every sentence.. writing is hard!) because of its tonic properties to draw blood to the skins (dammit) surface . great for ACNE

RAW HONEY: has alpha-hydroxy which naturally exfoliates the skin (minus any scrubbing) its healing (wound care) because its anti inflammatory so again great for acne or spots

LEMON: lemons are the best .. just the best it gets rid of blackheads . don’t leave this mask on for more than 20 mins .. lemons lighten scars and skin blemishes but also skin .. im not saying you’ll get that skin thing michael jackson had (or did he?) … but you may lose your tan (if you have one, if not , get some Vitamin D man!!) . it is also full of vitamins .. but im sceptical our skin eats vitamins.. now im just picturing pores with little mouths

ANY WAY …

combined slather on face , chill out .
i’ve actually just done this and I’m currently watching a drunk man yelling the C-word on the street outside my window and proclaiming to have “FINALLY MADE IT!” good for him , and good for you if you make this!! xx

When I was younger i spent a great deal of time going through bathroom cabinets and the kitchen pantry to find “ingredients” for my (i was copying my mum) skincare . this sometimes led to many award occasions when there would be a lack of olive oil for the evening meal , or stale aromas wafting from my room as Barbies FRUITLOOP bangles rotted …or most horrifically when i used a sanitary pad to make a wedding vail for Barbie(she was a bad influence clearly) and my mum couldn’t breathe it was so funny . anyway i wanted to feel like a kid again and was desperate for a good ol scrub . this recipe is so easy and fun .
