Welcome to Eden (recipe?)

IMG_20160623_031113

Eating food, just food, why is that so strange? That’s how they did it in Eden, why shouldn’t I strive for that?  Well I do, every day.  It sounds too good to be true.. living in harmony among the animals, eating in abundance.. uhhh that’s basically what it feels like to live this way!!

Simple.  It’s my favourite way to eat.  No actual recipes, just delicious combinations.  Like this one.. juicy tomato, ripe sweet mango, lettuce and basil picked from the garden.  Nothing more.  It’s fabulous!

I do believe this is the food in heaven’s buffet.  The God that I believe in provided me with this to eat, and so I happily accept the offering.  I don’t come up with reasons why this isn’t enough, or unsatisfying, or missing something..  I focus on why it is perfect.  THANK YOU.  Living food for a living body.  I celebrate what this does for me, and I reap the benefits.

~ Holy GUACAMOLE Recipe ~

Who doesn’t love a classic creamy GUAC? Seriously?  

guacHere’s my quick and easy version.. and yes, this is a meal!!  For anyone who may think I eat a handful of spinach and grass every day, not the case! 😜😂😆 here’s THE PROOF.

3-4 RIPE Avocados

1 cup chopped cilantro

Juice of 2-3 limes

1/4 cup diced red onion

handful of chopped cherry tomatoes

Raw corn kernels (slice off one ear of corn)

Optional additions: Red bell pepper, hemp seeds, chilli flakes or spice of your choice!

Simply combine all ingredients, except avocados.  Mash ripe avocados in a separate bowl and then mix everything together.  Add more lime juice if necessary.  I prefer to keep all my recipes salt free, but feel free to add this if you must.

Eat with anything you like! I enjoy it spread on romaine lettuce leaves, with carrot sticks or cucumber slices, or even with a spoon.

Enjoy!  & let me know in the comments if you have an epic guac combo, I am always looking for new flavours.

Bye for now,

Welcome to Fruit And Family!

Welcome to Fruit And Family

Welcome to my BLOG!

I began “Fruit And Family” with a blog many years ago, and I am so excited to finally bring it back to life! The focus has been YouTube for the last while, but I truly believe there is something very special,irreplaceable, about the written word..coaching-img

I’d like to introduce you to my family. Those faces behind the scenes, those lovely people fast asleep upstairs as I type. These lovelies pictured here are my reason for.. everything. My husband D, and my 3 little kiddies. But I’m not your typical mama! Call me crazy.. but I want my family to eat as many plant based food as possible so they can enjoy life fully at all ages, and avoid common health issues in today’s world. I want them to grow up seeing mom and dad working hard, doing what they love, setting and achieving personal goals. I want to show them unconditional love and support, as they do for me. They are truly my EVERYTHING. Thanks for putting up with me!!

If you are ready to embrace, or simply flirt with the idea of vegan living, then this is the family for you. We welcome you with open arms! Share your progress, accomplishments, struggles, fears, and tears. I’m here to listen, guide, and help in any way I can.

So once again,

Welcome to my family!
