vegiehead Couldn't make up my mind what to make for dinner... But I felt like lots of greens tonight (must have been the big hike and swim today!)! So I made my Beet Greens soup (recipe is in a post a month or so ago), celery, cucumber and lemon juice, and lightly steamed zucchini, broccolini, spinach, kale- sautéed with onion and topped with loads of lemon juice, a pinch of salt and some basil. || D I V I N E || 22h
  •   ohmmumma Darling, going to visit Barc in Ubud tomorrow...any ideas of how we can help apart from donating? X 22h
  •   vegiehead @ohmmumma I gave $$ and sat and played with the dogs! I think some toys would be great- but didn't even see any over there to buy. Tennis balls maybe? Take tissues!! 22h
  •   ohmmumma I'm already nearly in tears daily!! I haven't seen any puppy/dog toys either. Thanks beautiful 22h

How do you do Sunday's mornings?

vegiehead Power to #earthhour!! My chat tonight at @_greenhouse_cafe started with a bit of a background (that Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney and now has reached most corners of the globe! That @_greenhouse_cafe is organic, local, sustainable- only serving vegetarian and vegan food, and that everything from the chairs and tables, to the artwork is all local). Then I shared a little about me- how my job is to encourage people to eat more vegies, in a fun and accessible way (without fear or guilt persuasion. And, as you all know, I'm also of the belief that our bodies are completely unique and what works for one, may not for the other). That by reducing your meat consumption- even by one meal, or one day a week, you're making a difference to not only your health, but also the environment.
That we use over 16000 litres of water to produce one kg of beef.
That over 5.6 billion animals are killed for consumption each year (so sad, and imagine the water and power and fuel that gets used also). But just think, by eating less meat, you're helping make these numbers drop. A sentiment that was echoed when meteorologist and channel 7 news presenter Livio Regano shares.
Eating meat uses more power and is more energy intensive farming wise ... And if we just cut down, we can help!

You know who to turn to and where to go for your fave plant based recipes - me! And www.vegiehead.com
And when you're out and about, places like Greenhouse are your best bet for the best food

vegiehead || M A N G O S T E E N || imagine my delight this morning when I found some of these at my local organic market stall!! Aren't they beautiful? Dubbed 'The Queen of Fruit', they're high in vitamin c, great for promoting healthy red blood cells, and reducing BAD cholesterol.
The white segments inside remind me of a cross between an apple, a mango and a kiwi fruit. They're sweet- but not too sweet- and have a tartness that is really surprising and pleasant.
You can tell how many segments are inside by looking at the small star shape on the bottom of each mangosteen- it's like a little secret they're sharing with you.
I've eaten them in many asian countries but they are a bit hard to get here due to their short season.
Have you ever tried one? Thanks @sunshine_organics for always having awesome produce!!

vegiehead Does anyone else have this problem? Whenever Paul and I cuddle or kiss, Hank comes running over and tries to get in the middle!! It's like 'she's my mummy! Hands off!' Our moments are few and far between when he's around!
So we were trying to get a cuddle in, and you can hear Paul saying. 'He's coming'- and hank proceeded to jump up and knock us both down thanks hanky #hankandholly

  •   mickeybluandthemotleycrew Yep my boy motley does the same thing! 2d
  •   laura.jauregui Mine used to do that but now she's changed to wanting a group hug. 2d
  •   unwindmyotherapy My girl Kimmy loves to smoosh herself in the middle for a group hug! 2d
  •   jacilyn89 My dogs do this!!!!!!! Annoying but cute 2d
  •   heyitsblythe We used to play this game with our old dog and whenever as kids we would cuddle mum we would sing "my mummy my mummy" and he'd be trying to get in the middle! He wasn't as big as hank though so no knock downs 1d

vegiehead Although she's deaf, Holly still picks up certain high and deep pitched noises... she just can't work out which direction they're coming from.
Luckily her ears act like satellite dishes and move around a lot.
This was her face after I told her that Delicious Doggy Dishes is ALMOST here!!!! <3 <3 <3

vegiehead Trying out the new @adorncosmetics self tanner! I've got such a sensitive nose, so this is brilliant as it's got no scent at all! Using coffee bean extract and coconut oil it gives a luminous and natural looking tan! Check it out here: http://www.adorncosmetics.com.au/products/skincare/natures-tan-with-coffee-seed-extract-and-coconut-oil-%28200ml%29 and head to @adorncosmetics for tips on how to apply it! 4d

vegiehead Does this speak to you?
Do you eat with your gut or your stomach?

When you eat with your intuition, listening to your body and actually trusting what your body is telling you, life becomes a whole lot simpler. That's the feeling, deep down in your gut thats telling you what you need and what you don't.
When you eat with your stomach, you eat with hunger and are often not giving your body what it needs.
This is one of the many many topics we'll be covering (when I say we, I mean me, and some of Australia's, and the Worlds, top health, wellness and lifestyle experts) in the VIP Club House.
Can't wait to share more #vegiehead #vhclubhouse

vegiehead The cake to trump all others. Moist, crumbly, spiced to perfection and it looks so pretty!

Apple, Ginger and Cinnamon Tea Cake AKA Charlie's cake (Named after she devoured 3/4 of it one sunday afternoon). This delicious recipe is available in my published book 'The Vegan Cookbook' by Adele McConnell, and is available anywhere books are sold worldwide, and online. It's plant based, mostly GF and allergy free. But most of all - they're all scrumptious recipes!

Thanks @Msveganlife for this gorgeous pic, and happy birthday to your mum!

Don't forget to #Vegiehead so I can see your delicious recreations!

vegiehead It would take you longer to drive to the shops and order dodgy asian takeout than it would to make this.
TEN MINUTES.
Dinner is served.
Sauté onions, garlic and chilli in sesame oil. Add diced smoked tofu. Cook until nice and lightly browned. Add broccoli, zucchini, carrot. Splash with some Tamari. Whisk almond butter, tamari, sesame oil, mirin, and rice wine vinegar together, with some hot water. Boil soba noodles for two minutes- add to the stirfry. Pour over sauce and serve immediately. Black sesame seeds to top optional.
I love @SpiralFoods for my sauces and noddles
