How to Develop Taste Tolerance to Superfood Smoothies

I have refined my daily breakfast smoothie over many years, 8 actually and it is constantly evolving and changing with the seasons.

Super Healthy Flatbreads

I’m a really busy person. I work all day and when I am not working I am either meditating, practising Tai Chi, studying or partying.

I like to make my bread out of a mixture of spelt and buckwheat or spelt and barley flour, and sometimes just buckwheat.

Lucuma ~ The Gold of the Incas

What is Lucuma? The lucuma (Pouteria lucuma) often spelt lacuma, is a subtropical fruit native to the Andean valleys of Peru, which has been cultivated since 200AD. It is also grown in Bolivia, Costa Rica and in the sub-tropical foothills of California. Lucuma fruit is either round or oval shaped, with green skin and bright yellow flesh. The Europeans discovered it in the 1500s and named it ‘egg fruit’ on account of its texture, which is similar to a hard boiled egg’s yolk.
