Getting to the Root Cause of Period Pain

Easy Homemade Tomato Beans on Toast

This is my homemade version of baked beans. I'm not sure if it is very authentic, because there is no baking involved. I have always gotten a little grossed out by baked beans on toast, only because the only version I was exposed to was the canned version.

Vegan Cherry Tomato Brown Rice and Buckwheat Risotto

I am actually on a mission to add more types of whole grains into my diet more consistently, hence why I also added buckwheat to this recipe. I love buckwheat because its a good source of magnesium. I have currently taken to cooking up a big batch of whole grains and freezing them. I do a big batch of millet, buckwheat, and quinoa as well as brown rice.

No Bake Vegan Chocolate Mousse Tart with Raspberries

Paring it with the magnesium from the raw cacao and almonds as well as the b vitamins found in sunflower seeds means that this dessert is wonderful for building healthy neurotransmitters and boost mood (most chocolate does that). The added bonus of fresh raspberries adds extra antioxidants and vitamin c. I particularly love my fresh Aussie raspberries from Perfection Fresh, that I get from my local Aldi down to the road.

Durum wheat semolina flour used in pasta is actually quite different to flour used in bread, it has a much lower gluten concentration so it is less likely to create a digestive upset,

I was so thrilled my first attempt at a baked vegan cheesecake had worked so well that I wanted to try different flavour combinations.

Vegan DIY Iron Supplement Gummies

It turns out I have a lot to say about iron and consuming iron for women, probably because it comes from personal experience, but for the purpose of this post I will keep my writing about the recipe itself and not delve too much into iron. I am currently experiencing mildly low iron due to previous pregnancy and extended breastfeeding.

I have recently learned that plums are a very good source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are a powerful tool to help fight off oxidative stress and free radicals. They help boost the immune system and help to fight off viruses, in fact, antioxidants are so great for the immunity they have even been shown to help fight cancer

Tea Infused Vegan Spelt Muffins with Blackberry Coconut Frosting

Its a very plain recipe so I wanted to attempt to give it more flavour by using herbal tea instead of plant milk and add some frosting. The herbal tea I used was a sleep time blend from Asha Twinnings, which was mostly chamomile, but you can use any tea you like.
