Truth Tea: Nostalgia


Goop Galangal Broth 2.0 Sweet Potato Patties


These were probably one of my favourite accidents ever.

Curried Sweet potato patties made from the left over sweet potato from the GOOP Galangal Broth. Unfortunately the recipe measurements are not precise but just use your best judgment.


1.5 Cups of cooked sweet potato from the goop galangal broth
1/2 cup of Coconut flour
1/2 cup of besan flour
1 TBSP Psyllum husk
1 Flax egg
1 tsp Turmeric
1.5 tsp curry powder
Salt & Pepper


Puree the sweet potato and simply fold all the ingredients together to form a tough dough. Mould into patties and cook with a little bit of coconut oil on the stove top until brown and firm.


Served with a simple garlic and coconut oil story fry of tomato, kale and asparagus topped with fresh avocado and coriander.

Goop Galangal Broth



Still freezing and still loving Goop!
The Coconut Galangal Broth is so warming and comforting whilst being a nutrition powerhouse of good fats and detoxifying ingredients!

I use a mixture of galangal powder and fresh ginger if I can’t get my hands on fresh Galangal and I also leave a small of the sweet potato pieces in the broth when serving because they give a lovely burst of sweetness!

Mothers Day Red Velvet Donuts

So this post is super late as Mothers day was a bit of a difficult weekend for my family – we unfortunately lost my Nanna the beautiful matriarch of our family. But its beautiful that she’s at peace now and it did bring my family together which was really lovely; there truly are blessings in all situations. My poor mother, however spent most of the weekend by her bed side so on mothers day I made her these beautiful raw deserts for breakfast because sometimes chocolate and colour is just what you need.

I was inspired by the Red Velvet Donuts – Recipe from Ascension Kitchen – thank you ❤


Mine were Matcha & Red Velvet and I tweaked the recipe of course…

* 1 cups almond/brazil

She made the town troubadour loss for words,
People wrote songs about girls like her,
She makes people stop and stare and she knows it.
She makes men light up in her presence.
This is what she always wished for.
She desired so much and ultimately – just to be desired herself.
Until she realised that no matter what grande scale of adoration you receive,
It can’t make up for you not feeling…

Soup Glorious Soup !


I am not ashamed to admit that I have a serious obsession with soup. My excuse would be that its winter; but I don’t really think I need one because its just unbeatable. Twice last week and twice so far this week soup has been the only thing I have eaten all day. Breakfast Lunch and Dinner. To be air it has been a pretty magical time with the variety I have had available to me! From my own variations on tomato, new cafes opening around work dropping off cups of their organic broccoli soup to us at work to introduce themselves. to coming home to dads vegan potato and leek or minestrone. Basically its been a dream come true and I plan on it continuing.

One of the reasons I love soup is because you can get so much out of it flavour wise and nutrition wise! I have been experimenting with recipes from the Gwenyth Paltrow curated blog GOOP.
I am in love with the Hot & Sour Soup from the Good Detox. Its so tasty; So quick and simple to prepare! I make mine with veggie stock instead of chicken, sweet almond oil instead of sesame, a combo of Coconut amigos & Apple cider vinegar instead of the rice wine, besan instead of arrowroot flour and love loading it up with lots of Coriander and Bean Sprouts!
