Zaedyn and Zaya love Shakti Juice! Zaedyn was so cute turning over the bottle and pretending to read the label, letting me know that Shakti Juice was raw, vegan, unpasteurized, organic, and so so yummy.

Zaya was struggling to hold onto the bottle when it was full, but it did not stop her from trying to carry it all around and bring it to me to open for her.

We all enjoyed the beautiful morning sunshine and playing in the waves. Shakti Juice gave us so much energy and clarity. It really is beyond juice 😉

RAWR ~ Buy Local, Buy Fresh

Standard

“The best way to eat and drink is one that makes you feel healthy and happy!”

raw vegan

Buy local, buy fresh. 

Live in Orange County?

Rawr delivers creative and organic plant-based food right to your door. Whatever your personal goals or detox plans may be, rawr will work with you to create custom meal plans or even cater events.

Besides the creativity involved, Josh sources organic and often locally sourced ingredients to create these beautiful and satisfying plant-based dishes. As a classically trained chef, he brings his experience and gained insight toward health to deliver an incredible menu full of snacks, entrees, sweets, and sips as well as favorites that are always available, including: street tacos, pizzas, and nut mylks. I love the idea of ordering the kitchen sink which includes a few days worth of food; however, you can also order as little as you like if that suits.

As a raw vegan in Orange County (or anyone with an interest in health and keen to try new things), Shakti Juice & rawr have you sorted! The energy that flows within the organic, cold pressed juice and raw plant-based meals is amazing. Both companies reflect important sustainable practices and products that encompass holistic health. These companies may align for you whether you are coming off a juice fast and wanting to eat some raw gourmet food delivered to your door, or you may drink Shakti Juice and order the one off or weekly meal from rawr. The beauty is that these products are available and ready for whenever you choose! Locally sourced, locally made.

Pizza Fiesta & Raw Street Tacos

I am incredibly grateful for crossing paths with rawr through Instagram and being able to try out some of their incredible food. Have you ever tried raw pizza or raw tacos? I love playing around in the kitchen and making my own food, but there is also something amazing about being able to enjoy fresh raw food that someone else has created for you. I love supporting local, raw, vegan, organic food, especially food made with love. The amount of detail and energy that goes into creating rawr food is noticeable with every bite. Even through lengthy processes of dehydration, fermentation, soaking, and sprouting, their intention for nutritional and flavorful food will bring you positive energy and make you feel good. Eat local, eat fresh.

Order from Rawr!

Young Coconuts

The easy peasy way to open young coconuts! My little three year old vegan is excited about being able to help smash the coconuts open. We all love coconuts, and this is the perfect little tool we were given to help us get them open and discover all the nutrients inside.

Raw Buckwheat Groats for Brekkie

Standard

Vegan brekkie

Bowl of happiness and pure energy! There’s raw buckwheat groats underneath all those delicious berries, shredded coconut, walnuts, hempseed, and heaps of cinnamon! Perfect way to fill up your puku in the morning. Very satisfying and vegan kid friendly, too. Just looking at this bowl of goodness makes me smile :). How do you eat your buckwheat, or what other ways do you fuel up in the morning?

Enjoy the simple things in life that make you smile ❤

Raw Vegan Desserts

Standard

Life is pretty busy with two little ones, but at the start of this year I had decided to somehow squeeze in time to start exploring again with raw desserts. I have always loved exploring in the kitchen and really developed an interest in raw desserts when I first went vegan. Besides loving sweets, the raw desserts just looked so appealing and vibrant. The challenge of creating these decadent desserts without any “typical” ingredients was also exciting and seemed to intrigue me.

Once you begin making and eating raw desserts, anything seems possible! Many of them even have similar ingredients, but are very adaptable to adjust flavours and create something entirely different. Raw desserts are pure energy and happiness. Here are a few raw desserts that I have been playing around with, and I cannot wait to make some of my favourites again; especially raw vegan cheesecake!

Bliss Balls

Vegan Carrot Cake

Vegan Cookies

Vegan Donut

Vegan Lemon Bar

Yes, these are raw vegan desserts! Crazy enough, I actually had to use a hand food processor to create these as well which is why they are not perfect, but definitely made with love. Unfortunately the hand food processor is now out of action so I will need to come across one to continue making and sharing my raw desserts. I am truly grateful that I was given some raw ingredients to play around with as well as having some happy taste testers. Watch this space for more raw vegan desserts, and let me know if you want to come try some out or experiment in the kitchen together.

Vegan Avocado Truffles

Standard

So simple, yet so satisfying

Truffles or sushi? I cannot decide. Whatever you choose to call them, they are simply amazing!

Cut an organic avocado in half, remove the stone, and scoop out some of the avocado into a bowl. Mash and then toss in small pieces of fresh mango, coriander, black sesame seeds, and fresh squeezed lime.

After scooping this amazing mixture back into the avocado, put the two halves back together, and peel off the skin.

We then chose to cover our avocado with small pistachio pieces and black sesame seeds.

Then, I sliced the avocado into pieces and added extra pistachios and filling on the side.

Enjoy!

These were so delicious! The little vegans helped quickly devour these. I knew I should have made more! This was the perfect mix for us, but feel free to use any ingredients you have or what sounds best to you. I have had this idea saved to Pinterest and on the top of my “to make list” for a very long time. I cannot believe that we have finally made them, and I can guarantee it will not be the last. So many more organic raw vegan avocado truffles to come!

Wildflower Botanicals Storybook Selection Pack

Standard

Who would like to be sent a Storybook Selection Pack from Wildflower Botanicals as part of our Vegan & Eco-Friendly Giveaway?

Organic Tea

“Wildflower Botanicals is a boutique herbal business specialising in organic, fairtrade, and earth-friendly products.”

Wildflower Botanicals stocks a huge range of amazing teas down in Kaikoura. Even if you are not a huge tea drinker, I am sure that you will find something you might like. The blends are organic, and you can choose to drink them hot or cold whether you feel like a black tea, green tea, white tea, red tea, oolong, pu-erh, botanical, elemental chai, herbal, storybook, pregnancy, or seasonal blend. I can definitely say that I have been to the website many times to order, but simply could not narrow down what I wanted. They all sound so yummy.

As part of our giveaway, Meg has kindly offered a storybook selection pack to one of our readers. I love the idea of a tea being made for children of all ages. Yes, even you young-at-heart adults.

“Our storybook blends are made using organic botanical ingredients – fruits, flowers, leaves, seeds, bark, and roots – so they are naturally tannin and caffeine-free.” ~Wildflower Botanicals

Which blend would you choose?

I was really curious to see what Zaedyn might think of the teas. He mostly drinks water, almond milk or breastmilk, smoothies, and coconut water so I knew that this would be something quite different for him. I loved watching his facial expressions as he tried the tea and turned into a Rock Star.

Wildflower Botanicals
vegan chocolateI am pretty sure that he thought it was quite exciting to be having a real tea party. If you have been following along on Facebook, we had also received a lovely order of raw vegan chocolates from David’s family. Zaedyn really does have a very good memory and knew that it would not be a complete tea party without some chocolate. We love lovingearth products which you can purchase from Wildflower Botanicals as well. They are so yummy and well worth it. I love dark chocolate, and I have always enjoyed the combination of chocolate and mint. I was a bit hesitant about the orange & gubinge, but I have to say that I really like it. It isn’t a flavour that I would choose, but I am so glad that I have now. Apparently it is quite hard to keep stocked!

vegan chocolate
I cannot tell you which blend I like the best. I thought that it would be great to try each and see what we thought, but I can honestly say that they are all amazing. I love the different flavour combinations of each. It really is a lot of fun drinking a tea and thinking about an enchanted garden, Snow White, sweet dreams, rock star, Red Riding Hood, Gingerbread cottage, and Little Boy Blue. Many children seem to love tea parties, and this is an awesome way to have some fun and use your imagination alongside them as well as on your own. I know that I will be drinking them even when Zaedyn isn’t!

Lastly, just wanted to let you know about the Fe Blend (pregnancy) we ordered to help increase my iron storage and absorption of iron. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, just make sure to mention so that certain herbs can be left out. 1 tsp of Fe Blend per cup four times a day should be effective. As all the other teas, it is lovely. If you are interested in trying it out, enter the code AROHANUI at checkout for a 15% discount.
