As usual, we are cooking simple…and we got almost 5kg of almonds from the organic shop (FOR FREE!!) soooo had a lot to do.
With a proper blender, just blend the almonds until they become a paste, buttery texture 🙂
You can use any nuts : cashews, hazelnuts, peanuts, …
You can toast them too just a lil’ bit before mixing.
This raw millefeuille will blow your mind, as it is crunchy, creamy, sweet and sooo tasty!….
For this recipe, you will only need a blender or a food processor, some dates, bananas and apples. If you have time you can soak the dates (I’ve used medjool), otherwise it’s fine.
Chop the apples in slices, cut bananas into thin and long slices, prepare the dates caramel using your blender (dates+ water – the water we soak the dates in or filtered water), set aside.
Prepare the millefeuille: first layer is banana slices, second layer is apple slices, third layer is caramel sauce, repeat all over until you have nothing left 😀
-You can add a pinch of cinnamon on top or into the caramel sauce, if you like it-
Keep refrigerated if you can resist the temptation, or serve it as it is! Bon appetit!
Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis Miller) is a plant rich in amino acids, vitamins A, C, F, B, niacin, and has traces of vitamin B12, with awesome anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, healing, and soothing benefits for your skin, but also hair and intestines. I believe everyone should grow this beautiful precious plant…
WAYS TO USE FRESH ALOE VERA:
- Sunburn Remedy: Lots of chemicals and preservatives are found in beauty products, even vegan and organic ones. It is cheap and easy to get rid of your sunburns…
- Cleansing Juice: because it contains vitamins and minerals, using a small amount of aloe vera gel (skin off), you can add to your organic fresh juices. Drink to lower blood sugar levels—especially for diabetics. Drink to help ease congestion, stomach ulcers, colitis, hemorrhoids, urinary tract infections and prostate problems.
- Moisturising face mask
- Aloe vera reduces irritated skin, rashes, itchy bites..
- Exfoliant and moisturise – slice a piece of the leave, sprinkle some sugar onto the flesh and just spread over your body an hour or two before having a shower.
- Acne treatment: it is anti-microbial so it clears off the bacteria. Apply the aloe over the face.
- Hair conditioner: Help hair growth, prevents itching on the scalp, reduces dandruff and conditions your hair!
- Clear sinuses and airways: Boil leaves in a pan of water and breathe in the vapor to alleviate asthma
Make sure to get rid of the yellow liquid (aloe vera latex) as it may cause some rashes on your skin and probably other intestinal problems… To remove aloe latex, you should peel the thin layer of leaf first. After extracting the gel like substance, you will find the latex fluid under the leaf.
Because I believe in homesteading and the joy of Do-It-Yourself….winter time especially all-christmas-new-year-period is another excuse to
I suggest you to look at this recipe, and realise how easy it is to make. I promise your cherished ones will love these matcha cocoa truffles.
For about 15 of them you will need: For the filling: mix 180g coconut butter with one and an half Tablespoon of matcha tea powder and two Tablespoons of coconut nectar. Put 10 minutes in the freezer. For the ganache: rawcocoa with sweetener & some cocoa butter (or simply vegan dark chocolate) -some nice packagings for your truffles
You can keep these little things in the fridge or in the freezer for longer (up to three months)
This is based on my personal experiences with food/nutrition/sport and I am doing better when I am eating this way. I’m not saying that you HAVE to eat this way, I just share with you a way to maximise your energy with easier digestion….
Wherever I stay, I always bring this to put on my kitchen closets/shelves to check and do the right combo. Eat the energy you want to become.
Basically, what are we talking about in terms of foods? 80/10/10 works out easily and naturally if your calories break down approximately as follows: 90 to 97% from sweet and nonsweet fruits 2 to 6% from tender, leafy greens and celery 0 to 8% from everything else (other vegetables like cabbage and broccoli, plus fatty fruits, nuts, and seeds) You can generally accomplish this with two or three large fruit meals during the day, plus a large salad in the evening. Fruit predominates heavily, yet you consume as many greens as you like.

Over and over again, I hear people saying they’ve tried “everything” to lose weight—low fat, high fat, low carb, high carb, low protein, high protein, all kinds of pills, shots, powders, and shakes—you name it and they say they’ve tried it. The main cause of their failure is misinformation. There are reasons for each of these dietary failures. What they were told was “low fat,” usually 30%, actually is not low fat at all, and they have no idea how to get to an effective low-fat 10% as described in this book. High-fat diets can be dangerous and put you at risk for the diseases that most Westerners die from prematurely. Low-carb diets are also dangerous, and most people have no idea that the ideal diet consists of 80% carbs.
But, it must be the right carbs.

Urtica dioica, Heracleum sphondylium & Aegopodium podagraria PESTO Collect the leaves of nettle, ground elder and hogweed in the wild :) Put water and distilled vinegar in a big bowl and soak the leaves for about five minutes to disinfect. Drain and mix the leaves in a blender. Add cloves of garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and salt (or celery salt). I would add an avocado for extra creaminess... Blend blend blend - while listening to "Young Folks" I know it's tempting to eat like this, but better if refrigerated ;-) ENJOY!
Ingredients: 5 kiwis , 1 mango , half pineapple (frozen) , half fresh lemon juice , 2 passionfruits , Water as needed
Fruits are not local but organic. Most of the ingredients were going to be thrown away in the bin (organic shop) so I saved them and made this superyummy smoothie. If you make it, I can certify you your mind will travel far away 😉
If you don’t know yet, you can freeze ripe bananas, and make delicious dairy free & sugar free ice creams using only fruits and a high-speed blender.
I enjoy this as a breakfast or afternoon snack. During summer of course but in winter as well (Im crazy you say?)
For this one, I’ve used frozen bananas, acai powder and then I’ve sliced some local (Sardinian) peaches and chopped some pistachios.
THis is BLISS!!…..
I’ve shared this recipe last year through the social network, now that I’ve created the website I share it again. ‘Cause “sharing is caring” 😉
The lavender I’ve used is from the garden and the citrus fruits are from the organic shop I’ve worked in. This cheezecake is decadent, creamy and way better of the stealyourbabyandmakeyoupregnantwithalotofcruelty “normal” one.
Yep I was talking about dairy, this sh*t industry.
