Raw Diet

Raw courgette hummus.

Fully stocked raw fridge!

Starting tomorrow I will be trying a Raw Diet as an experiment, something to write about and hopefully a bit of a detox. I've been reading up on the benefits of a raw diet and the main benefits seem to be more energy and feeling cleansed. At first looking through all the recipes I felt extremely excited about all the new foods I will be eating next for the next 5 days, hopefully this lasts as it will make it so much easier if I can get really stuck in to making all of my meals. I did a quick shop today for everything I needed for the first day, and decided I will start with a smoothie, and have a salad with raw hummus for lunch. I haven't quite decided what to have for dinner, but I like the looks of courgette noodles. I started off today with making my own tahini and courgette hummus for my lunch, it was quite easy to make and will hopefully make my lunch for tomorrow a bit more exciting. I will blog for the next 5 days about what foods I've discovered and how the diet is making me feel. Wish me luck!

Goody Good Stuff New Range!

The main and probably only thing I miss bring vegetarian is real gummy sweets. For ages I've had to buy vegetarian Haribo, which is not only hard to find but also nowhere near as good as regular Haribo. Recently Haribo brought out Funny Mix which is good but you're stuck with cola bottles, stars and strawberries (and a strange texture). So I am ridiculously happy that Goody Good Stuff have brought out an amazing new range of gummy sweets. Not only are they gelatine free, but also fat, dairy, and gluten free and of course taste absolutely amazing. The sweets are made with natural flavorings, which really shines through in the taste. Hopefully they become more widely available because even if you're not vegetarian or vegan they taste great and save you from eating animals hooves and other nasties. I've only tried the Cheery Cherries, Sour Fruit Salad and Koala Gummy bears so far but i've just brought all 8 varieties, for research purposes, obviously.

You can now find them in most Holland and Barrett stores :)
