It’s Christmas Eve and what better way to celebrate than with a chocolate orange tart! This tart is rich, creamy and indiscernibly healthy. How you wonder? If you use coconut cream and a refined sugar-free dark chocolate it is gluten, dairy and refined sugar free, which seems surprising for how decadent it is. Even if you use full cream and 85% Lindt chocolate, it’s still a gluten free dessert with minimal added sugar!
This makes our Chocolate Orange Tart the perfect to please both the health conscious and the more indulgent festive eaters. With that, we wish those celebrating a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

So take a moment and appreciate what you’ve done for your health and happiness in 2018. Use this time during the holidays to slow down and simply enjoy the joy of the festive period.
With that in mind, what better way to get into Read More
Sometimes the simplest things, are the best! Pears are a beautiful fruit to enjoy in the winter while they’re ripe and delicious. While traditionally this dish, poached pears, is made with a lot of sugar, this is a healthier alternative that doesn’t compromise on flavor. A few tablespoons of honey, plus the sweetness from the added citrus fruits concentrated down, makes a really amazing tasty syrup.
This dessert looks really impressive on a plate, but is so simple and easy to do. Don’t forget to cut the bottoms off the pears when you’re preparing a plate, so they can stand up on their own.
If you’re wondering why pears should be Read More
It’s been a while since we posted a recipe on our blog, but we’re back! This time with a delicious home made granola recipe, which is much better than any store bought granola that often contains added sugar, palm oil and non-gluten free grains. Once the granola is pre-prepared, it is very quick breakfast you can put in a jar and take with you to work or as a post-workout snack. In our jars, we’ve paired the homemade granola with apple compote and yoghurt, but you can get creative with just about any fruit! This time of year pears are some of our favorites, for instance.

So have you heard of the old wives’ tale that you should eat your colors? Then you’ll love these green pancakes!
