Healthy food lovers; listen up! I recently discovered a gem of a health foodie spot that you need to visit. The Wild Food Cafe is tucked away in the colourful courtyard that is Neal’s Yard. I love that place, it’s such a hidden little treat in buzzing Sevendials. For a not so healthy spot there go to Homeslice (review here), it’s pretty bombdiggity! Anyway, back to the Wild Food Cafe. Now this is a raw-centric, vegan and vegetarian hot spot using local and fresh organic ingredients.
When it comes to breakfast and the weather getting warmer again in London, I just can’t help craving Granola all the time! And I like my granola fresh and homemade because the store bought ones are full of added sugars and preservatives that are really unnecessary. My usual go-to granola recipe is this Honey Nut Granola which is deliciously crunchy, nutty and healthy – but I was in the mood for something new recently. Now, it’s no secret that I am totally obsessed with anything containing peanut butter so I thought why not mix my cravings for granola and peanut butter together to create a healthy homemade Peanut Butter Granola!
Kale seems to be the trendy green these days. So obviously I jumped on that bandwagon. But not only because it’s cool and good for you, it’s also actually really tasty! Kale can seem a bit chewy and though as a salad but if you ‘massage’ the leaves then it becomes a lot more delicious and tender. Here is one of my favourite salads using this healthy green, my kale salad with pomegranate, raisins and toasted flaked almonds!
Avocados. I just adore them. They are delicious simply sliced on toast with a heavy sprinkling of salt, mashed up as guaca-mole-mole for dipping nachos or veggies into, cubed in a refreshing salad (like my favourite Mango Avo & Macadamia Salad) or made into smashed chilli avocado (recipe) served with perfectly poached eggs! Yumm.
Anyway, in this recipe I used my beloved avocado for making a delicious pasta sauce. The sauce is rich and super creamy but still totally healthy! Just simple and fresh ingredients like avocado, garlic, basil and lemon juice whizzed all together and you’ve got yourself a green and creamy but oh so good for you pasta sauce. I served mine with zucchini pasta but feel free to have it with regular pasta; because you are saving loads of calories already with this healthy creamy avocado pasta sauce because you’re not using any butter or cream!
