Super Simple Raw Food Bars

Ingredients: Dates, Apricots, Sultanas, Almonds, Agave Nectar

The Final Result!

Hey Guys,

This morning I decided to make some healthy raw food bars. I took all of the ingredients and whizzed them in a blender (you can also just whack and roll them all together with a rolling pin :D ) I then rolled out the mixture and drizzled agave nectar syrup over the top. Then roll the mixture up into a sausage shape and cut into two bars.

These are so simple to make and they are so yummy. You need to eat within a couple of days, if you are going to keep them in the fridge you will need to lift them out about 1/2 an hour before you want to eat them to let them soften up.

Healthy Coconut Oil Chocolate

Hey Guys,

So today I had a day off and spent the day in the kitchen trying out recipes and making marvellous things :)

I decided to make my own homemade and healthier chocolate to a shop bought is so simple to make and it's really yummy so here is what I used and how I made it.

200g Raw Cacao powder
200g Coconut Oil
200g Agave Nectar or Organic Honey (or a mix of both)
1tbsp Orange Zest ( can use whatever flavouring you like)

Basically you just need to do equal amounts of the three ingredients and then add in whatever flavourings you like....lemon, orange, mint, salt etc 

Melt down the three ingredients together on a low heat, then add in any flavourings you want to.
You can also add in chopped nuts or dried fruit if you like :)
Then pour the liquid chocolate into chocolate moulds or if you don't have moulds line a small baking tray with greaseproof paper and you can pour it into that.
Pop the moulds or baking tray into the fridge to cool and harden (only takes about an hour)
Take out and enjoy!

My New Miracle Skin Cure.....

Neals Yard Organic Coconut Oil (£9)

A couple of drops every morning and every evening...

gives you clear and glowing skin!

Hello All! 
I have a brand new obsession that comes in the form of coconut oil. I use the Neals Yard Organic Coconut Oil that costs £9 per pot.... you can find it here

For any of you that haven't come across coconut oil before it is a miracle product! You can use it as a healthier alternative to other oils in cooking as well as on your skin and hair.
I use a small scoop on damp hair once a week as a hair mask, it really helps to lock in moisture and repair damaged ends. I have been using it on my hair for about 2 weeks and I have seen such a hair is shinier, healthier and softer.

The thing I have been loving the most though is using it on my skin. I have had problematic since I was about 15 and have been searching for solutions ever since. My current routine is washing off any make up and dirt each morning and night with warm water or my Liz Earle cleanser, then I put a couple of drops of coconut oil as a moisturiser and let it soak into my skin for about 15 minutes before applying make up or going to bed. My skin has never looked healthier, clearer or more glowing.... I love love love this product and it's many different uses!
Have you used coconut oil before? If not go and try it out!!
