  • Hazelnut Frappuccino

    Posted on March 27, 2012 by lainey in recipies.

    I am very exited about this new concoction. I know it’s only a drink but it’s just SO GOOD. As a former coffee addict (I used to live for my morning French press), it is one thing I do actually miss. Well, I don’t miss drinking coffee as it turned me into a jittery lunatic […]

  • Cool Cucumber and Spinach Soup

    Posted on March 26, 2012 by lainey in recipies.

    What’s that? Is that a (very small) tan line I spy? And are those freckles coming out of hibernation appearing on my nose? This can only mean one thing- the sun is shining in England! In March! It’s a miracle. Oh how I’ve missed you glorious, beaming sunshine. Everything is so much better when you’re around. It’s days […]

  • Juice Pulp Pizza Crusts

    Posted on March 20, 2012 by lainey in recipies.

    As it’s the start of Spring Equinox, and many of you will be detoxing, I probably shouldn’t be doing a post about Pizza. But before you dismiss it and run back to your Master Cleanse, there is some method to my seemingly anti-detox madness! If you are having a bit of a cleanse, I’m guessing you […]

  • Raw Marzipan Balls

    Posted on March 18, 2012 by lainey in recipies.

    Coming from the Yorkshire dales and being the granddaughter of a professional baker, you can imagine how often the smell of baked scones, breads and cakes was always wafting out of our oven (you might want to listen to a bit of this, starting from 0.42 seconds, just to get you in the mood – “EeeeBy’Eck” ).

  • Green Mango Smoothie

    Posted on March 15, 2012 by lainey in recipies.

    Woah. I have just read Victoria Boutenko’s book ‘Green For Life’ in about an hour; I couldn’t put it down. It was fascinating. It’s all about green smoothies, basically. Sound boring? Well maybe for some, but what she say’s in this book is important for everyone. Since getting into all this raw food stuff, I of […]

  • Interview with ARNAUD HAUCHON – Head Chef at Raw/Vegan Restaurant Aloka, Brighton.

    Posted on March 11, 2012 by lainey in Raw Talk.

    Meet Arnaud Hauchon, the unassuming French man who is responsible for creating some of the best raw food I have ever tasted. After my sixth visit to Aloka in Brighton, the restaurant at which he is head chef, I decided it was time to meet the man behind the Parsnip ravioli with a green olive, walnut […]

  • Two Weeks on Raw – Day Fourteen

    Posted on March 5, 2012 by lainey in Raw Talk, Two Weeks on Raw, Uncategorized.

    Two weeks ago Jack and Sally went from eating foods like a typical English fry up and steak and chips, to eating nothing but a diet made up of raw vegan foods. This meant no meat, fish, dairy, eggs, soy, cooked grains and pulses, sugar, coffee, black tea – and nothing heated above 45°c. The […]

  • Two Weeks on Raw – Day Thirteen

    Posted on March 4, 2012 by lainey in Raw Talk, recipies, Two Weeks on Raw.

    Before I begin, I must first apologise. Yesterday, I promised you a recipe for Peppermint Chia Chocolate. But alas and alack, this can no longer happen. Well it can, it’s just that I don’t have an enticing photograph of the Peppermint Chia Chocolate to show you, and I do like an enticing photograph to match […]

  • Two Weeks on Raw – Day Twelve

    Posted on March 3, 2012 by lainey in Raw Talk, recipies, Two Weeks on Raw.

      If I was worried about how Jack and Sally would get on without me when I’m gone before, I’m certainly not now! I have just left the dinner table after being served a.. (wait for it).. a  five course meal made exclusively of raw, living foods prepared by non other than Jack himself!!! And let me […]

    Jack  – “I think I’ve turned a corner, Elaine. I feel really good this morning. In fact, I’d go so far as to say I feel really happy!  HALLELUJAH!!! I made Jack and Sally a Raw Chocolate and Coconut Milkshake for breakfast to celebrate (see below for recipe!). Jack woke up first thing feeling energised and […]
