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

Clean MakeUp Can Be Pretty …. SAY WHATTT?!?!?

So … make up ..is like the female equivalent of the male ability to lie with great conviction .. yep boys are liars liars pants on fires .

but apparently so are our cosmetic companies … because i am not a scientist and mainly because learning with pictures is funnnnnn , and probably because I’m lazy

SEE BELOW INFOGRAPHIC THAT WILL MAKE YOU GO HOLY SHIZNITT WHAT IS THIS MONSTER PASTE I PUT ON MY FACE AND RUB IN MY EYES !

Image

(Infographic from cosmetologyschool.org)

Ok now breathe … because I’m sure you’re rubbing your face and thinking of all the eggs in your womb that are turning to dust because you bought some cheap ass chemist make up .. which lets face it is a lil too thick anyway (I’m a somewhat expert on this as i spent my teens walking around with enough foundation on that you could scratch your initials in my forehead like a pre-kiln terracotta pot )

*note : above image is not me .. but i could have given this chick a run for her money … O_O

I digress ..

But make up is Fun and pretty and girly you say  .. and “clean” or “organic” make up is for the hairy-of-pitted sisters who wash with soap nuts and haven’t figured out that looking fashionable and clean is not in fact an indication of having no social conscious or wanting raisin shrivelled ovaries (I’m going heavy on the ovaries chat .. apologies )

But thanks to a couple of clean people (think Jessica alba, Karlie Kloss and Miranda Kerr) that hippie sh*t is getting a decadent make over ..

ROLL UP ROLL UP

RMS BEAUTY

(i am not being endorsed to write this .. because no one would ever endorse me for anything lets face it (yay make up pun) .. and SAD FACE)

so what is this wizardry clean make up Created By esteemed Make Up artist Rose-Marie Swift (no taylor relation i don’t think)

“After many years in the fashion and make-up industry, I’ve learned a lot about the impact of daily exposure to chemicals in beauty care products. I’ve seen what works and what doesn’t live up to its promises. I see the results of taking a quick-fix approach to looking good. I know first-hand the price our health can pay in the pursuit of beauty. I realized that what women need is a cosmetics line that is as pure as possible, one that creates a solid foundation for anti-aging and long-term beauty.

RMS Beauty is dedicated to transforming the way women use makeup, and it’s about more than simply using organic ingredients. In fact, that’s only the first step in creating a product that’s not only non-toxic, but that actually heals and nourishes skin. It all comes down to chemistry: when a raw material is processed for use in cosmetics or other beauty products, it typically undergoes a lengthy process. I was surprised to learn that the majority of ingredients used for natural cosmetics are refined, bleached, deodorized, clarified, fractionated and heated to high temperatures. But this means they are not pure natural ingredients anymore – they are now equivalent to man-made chemicals. Complicating matters more, the processes strip away almost all of the nutrients that make natural ingredients beneficial to skin. Today’s cosmetics and skincare lines are full of mono-nutrients and mono-nutrients do not interact. Only real nutrients interact… anything alive interacts.”

 so its beautiful and clean ..and its worth the look into .. its worth the make up overhaul .. a lot of people don’t realise that the quality of their skin is a direct result of the stuff you’re putting on it !

My Suggestion would be the

and it is so important .. And the Company I HEART GUTS thought it was SOOO freakin important that the self proclaimed “anatomically obsessed illustrator” and founder Wendy Bryan decided to turn her obsession into fun toys !

Screen Shot 2014-03-28 at 07.39.47

other than being fun and sometimes citing some great reference to articles based on the different organs , there are some beautiful testimonials from people who have bought the products.. One about a mother who bought the stomach for her child that had to surgically have their stomach removed … heartbroken people who received a “new heart” which is so cute .

Omega 3’s

Omega-3-sources

Indisputable new studies have proven omega 3 deficiencies are the cause of many and most mental and physical ailments .. from depression to weight gain , with modern diets so high in omega 6’s in the form of vegetable oils in basically all processed foods .. Omega 3 are depleted and considering our body cant produce them and needs to aqquire them from foods (unless you’re eating a lot of sustainable fish and flaxseed) you wont be getting adequate amounts .. everyones going to be talking about krill oil & fish oils supplements as the most successful ways of building your Essential Fatty Acids .. its all about OMEGA 3 in 2014

Paleo Diets

PaleoDiet2
They were big this year , but in 2014 paleo is going to reign supreme . The Palaeolithic diet harps back to eating caveman style and shunning Dairy and ALL GRAINS AND LEGUMES in favour of fat rich grass fed meats and fresh produce . Last year was all about bacon and eggs for breakfast , but this years paleo diet will look far more fresh , healthy and Gatherer -Hunter as opposed to Hunter-Gatherer . Think kale salads , fresh fish and simple berry dishes . Adriana lima is doing it … nuff said

Exercising Smarter

47f9f052b5b0f81c_Models_Working_Out_Vogue_Italia
its now been proven that is not the length of your workout that matters , but the quality .
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) CrossFit and Functional exercise (like pulling objects , climbing and gymnastic based gym workouts) are where its at .
losing that stubborn weight or toning up quick is about short intense 20 minute workout utilizing multiple muscle groups to turn up the dial on metabolism and start the fat burning process .
READING MATERIAL :

Good Fat

Fun-Food-Art-Kleiner-2
Now we know fat doesn’t equate to GETTING FAT .. the year is going to be the Fat 14.. in fact to get into that fat burning state of Ketosis one needs a high fat diet , so check out the coconut oil , avocado , butter (grass-fed) ghee and anything else with the GOOD FATS in it .. these fats cant be used as energy and instead go straight to power the brain and your body has to seek about its own stores of body fat to burn for energy . look it up peeps . fatty fatty boom boom
READING MATERIAL:

Mainstream Juice

GREENJUICE
mark my words there will be unpasteurised fresh juices at the stores in 6packs.. beer or green juice… beer or green juice.. GREEN JUICE .. green juices and juice cleanses became the darling of 2013 and now everyone wants to get in on it without paying a months rent so expect affordable cleanses to hit the mainstream
READING MATERIAL:

Bye Bye Smoking

addictive

people are over it.
From Australia to Europe and other progressive areas of the world have shunned it in public places , put taxes on it and upped the ante on advertising its negative impacts on your health … but it doesn’t even need to be said anymore , almost all smokers are wanting to quit and with books so popular like Allen Carr’s Quit Smoking The Easy Way and various new forms of meditation and hypnosis to toss the habit  alongside a rapid rise in sales of Electronic Cigarettes .. smoking will be a thing of the past sooner than we thought … even the french are over it

Sweetness Of The Day .. Rude Health

I love when a company does it right and I also love a Dairy Free Milk Alternative .. in fact I think I have tried every brand under the sun ..Ii dont think actually I know , I carry rice milk in my bag at all times .YES I AM THAT LAME!.

So its pretty important when I find a brand that does a delicious one .. thats organic, with few ingredients and kind of funny!

come on rude boyyyyyy!

yes it exists .. I recently came across Rude health ( a health food company noted for its cereals and granola) they’ve branched out into milk alternative drinks . and they are great . good for the earth,body and mind . most notably they are one of the only almond milk brands that doesn’t contain CARRAGEENAN an additive that has shown to be cancer causing (WTF ! I KNOW ) along with gastrointestinal issues .. its best just avoided (CLICK HERE FOR FULL INFO) .

1233996_10151862992972421_1591989963_n

As for the rice milk , its the only brand i’ve come across in the UK that uses Brown Rice, so you’re getting a wholegrain .. a WHOLE FOOD !! which is lower Gi (sugary basically) than white rice and more nutritious ! it also means it is broken down by the body easier . can I get a WHOOP WHOOP !

rudehealth

ABOVE IMAGE: despite the brand name they are actually incredibly polite .. besides potty mouth Brown Rice Milk

not only does it not have any baddy additives, its also got an ingredients list that is so short ! so Rude health in perfect British form does exactly what its says on the tin .

Anyway point is its British , Environmentally friendly, healthy, funny, and far outshines all of the other million long ingredient milk alternatives .

I make my Golden Milk with it

Click on the site , they also have an amazing recipe section .. which is helpful for any dairy free peeps no matter where you are !

*p.s i’m not being gifted or paid to write this , in fact i think i’m the reason the brand has expanded into Waitrose .. I’ve bought so many .

UNREAL CANDY .. And Matt Damon In Glasses is a turn on ?!?!

organic , healthy candy .. what the what . and endorsed By Gisele Bundchen (hey babe) Matt Damon (babe) John Legend (legend, see what i did there?!?) and Dr Hyman (brain babe). get your happy faces on .. because its going to be everywhere soon . mmm candy nomononomonom Adam Melonas the creator has pulled out the big celeb guns .. but still if youre going to eat the sugar and calories .. at least let it be made from real food . AMEN UNREAL CANDY AHHHH_MENNNNNNN

but occasionally you come across a particular food that actually tastes better than in unhealthy alternative .. i know youre thinking .. lies… so many lies

but honestly Dairy Free Ice Cream is delicious and rarely requires more than 4 ingredients .. usually based of frozen banana’s , coconut milk or frozen berries .

DONT BELIEVE ME .. but hold up! this pinterest called

WE ALL CREAM FOR VEGAN ICE CREAM 

IS.GOING.TO.BLOW.YOUR.MIND

Created by VegNews its got cake batter, peanut butter, watermelon, fudgy chocolate .. literally all the best flavours ..

ahhh instagram .. making normal life events that much more beautiful . You probably follow some pretty mind numbing people , for no apparent reason.

Why do we do that ? its like .. yes i’ve seen that selfie of you every morning HASHTAG no Make up (code for makeup but I want you to think I look this good au natural) ugh but then they have a private profile , so if you unfollow the option to look is removed – dilemma

ANYWAY …

 The following accounts will literally make-your-life/ make you want to move to a beach pad with a wild garden and write a book about the benefits of sprouts . but whatever .. cue us all rearranging our salads/food to make them look effortlessly placed just-so .. ugh so much effort
