  • Eating Out

    Posted on January 31, 2012 by lainey in Uncategorized.

    A met with an old friend of mine recently. He knew me back in the days when I would mop up lamb fat with a slice of white bread. Although he didn’t outwardly dismiss my new lifestyle, I could tell that he had some concerns. One of them was the fact that he knew I […]

    Posted on January 26, 2012 by lainey in Raw Talk.

      Amsterdam is AMAZING for raw foods. I recently went to visit a beautiful close friend from my childhood who I had not seen for 17 years! And we had the BEST time. I explained that I ate a high raw diet before I came, and so she did some research as to where we […]

  • Spiralized Zucchini in a Creamy Avocado Sauce (on a bed of spinach and sun-dried tomatoes)

    Posted on January 24, 2012 by lainey in recipies.

      It’s official. I have done it. I have resorted to the ‘Ooo, let’s put ‘Zucchini’ instead of ‘Courgette’ to make this dish sound posh and exciting’ tactic. I hang my head in shame. This has been a pet hate of mine for quite sometime now. But if I am truly honest…. I sometimes think […]

  • Romaine Picnic Wraps.

    Posted on January 19, 2012 by lainey in recipies.

      I am a Yorkshire lass. Born and bred. ‘Fish and chips’ is a proud part of my heritage. ‘Where is the best ‘fish and chips’ in Yorkshire?’ has been one of my favourite topics for many years. (If you’re interested, it’s a tie between The Magpie in Whitby, and Murgatroyd’s in Yeadon). ‘Fish and […]

    For the last two months, I have been playing the part of Mary in Tim Firth’s production of The Flint St Nativity. The show took place at Hull Truck Theatre. Oh and just so you know, if you can be raw in HULL in WINTER – you can raw ANYWHERE. FACT. So, after the final show […]

  • Am I A ‘Health Food Junkie’?

    Posted on January 12, 2012 by lainey in Raw Talk.

      “It turns out you are a junkie”.   These were the words posted on my facebook page this morning from my good friend, Jack. He sent me a link to a new Channel 4 series called ‘Health Food Junkies’ and as the first episode was about those strange people labeled ‘Raw Foodists’, I thought […]
