Cultivate peace with stillness, the breath and beauty.

 

VEGAN DELIGHT

Make a conscious decision to focus on more plant based foods.

Here we offer some tasty vegan recipes to savour, whether you are actually vegan and looking for inspiration or as super healthy alternatives to meat and fish recipes that have become routine.

We look for recipes using higher quality produce, substituting occasional ingredients to upgrade your nutrition.

Whilst Debbie can’t tailor the recipes on a blog to every individual’s conditions and body the way she does with her clients, she does hand-select the recipes based on healthy ingredients put together in the most inspiring ways. Inspiration is the best step towards embracing genuine nourishment!

You MUST make sure that all ingredients you use are compatible with your own individual medical conditions, medications, allergies and goals.
