red onion


For most people, when all else fails they reach out for food as a way to sustain them through their emotional peaks and troughs. This is why I always have something on hand – my convenience food, my fast food- when, I too experience a trough from time to time.

In the old days it was ‘see who could get to the crisps fastest’ – now it’s ‘ take the guacamole from the fridge and smear liberal amounts onto some nice crispy seed snackers and life all of a sudden takes on a different hue’.

I encourage you to compare the colours of the image below and that of the interior of a bag of crisps!!

Some years ago when I experienced chronic salmonella poisoning picked up from a communal chopping board – I was a vegetarian at the time and someone had used a Vege chopping board to slice meat on- I had to be nursed back to life with lots of vegetable soups. The treatment worked a treat.

So in this RAW realm, my other standby is Tepid Miso Vegetable Soup – just divine. I chop up a handful of fresh vegetables, make up a Miso solution with warm water, add in some lime, Shoyu and a dash of macadamia oil (to make it slide down easier !! ) – place the bowl in the dehydrator for 15 mins on 115F AND VOILA. Soup to warm the cockles of one’s heart and soul.

So, if faced with RAW despair – don’t – just reach out to your fav Guacamole recipe and some RAW Miso Soup. You will be buoyed beyond despair and catapulted into a place of joy and happiness. Works always for me every time and it will probably work for you too.

It’s time to colour your life with the new hues emanating from the RAW Realm – ha ha 🙂

Life doesn’t need to be complicated anymore. For too long humanity has been living under pressure and pain. Now it’s time for ease and grace. Choose to do and be simple things.

There are many things one can do with an avocado and I see SIMPLE as best.

I haven’t had an avocado for a couple of weeks so tonight I filled one with a spicy red onion salsa including garlic, lime, lombardos sweet chilli and macadamia oil…just divine!!!

Here is the avocado in all its celebratory form and the next picture is of the lombardos from my friend Richard at the Noosa Farmers Market.  Truly a wonderful combination.

  • Chop tomato, cucumber, a glove of garlic, 1/3 of a red bell pepper, one whole lombardos sweet chilli (you can use a hot one if you wish).
  • Blend all together with the juice of 2 limes, a dash of red wine vinegar and a splash of macadamia oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Lombardos and padre de pimientos available right now at the Noosa Farmers Market. The padre de pimientos are often called the ‘roulette chilli’ -1 in 10 is HOT as hell. I got one the other day after taste-testing for the last few seasons and it blew the pockets of my shorts out and scorched the hairs off the back of my neck!!

When you eat fresh and RAW your body remains fresh and clean AND one doesn’t have to eat a lot. I spend more time grazing now than actually sitting down to meals.

ENJOY the PICS !! Much love now xx
