Last Year Myke, Varun and Myself went to Healesville Library where I did a raw food demo for Magic Milk Bar, I love being able to share my passion for creating tasty, healthy and fun vegan meals with others! I made three different recipes, you can find the Raw Jaffa Cashew Cheesecake recipe on my recipe blog, after the demonstration we went op-shop exploring with a local vegan friend Zoe and then it was off to check out the beautiful Maroondah Reservoir Park!

Life & Lentils

Life will always have its ups and downs, I know that! But I just feel like I’m at such a low point at the moment and I’m looking forward to things bighting up a little! I am so excited to be heading up to Cairns at the end of this month to spend time with my family ❤ and to escape this cold Melbourne weather for a little while!

I want to do great things with/in my life, but I feel I stop myself with not believing in myself… this has got to change! I know I am capable of doing awesome things! But there are moments where I lose faith in my ability and feel I’m going nowhere in life, I feel I am just going to be a jobless sad mess forever if I don’t get my stuff together and think positive with what I’ve got in life =)
I have the most amazing friends and family who love and support me ❤ I’ve just got to start loving and supporting myself! And I think it needs to start with me being open and honest with what I want!

I’ve wanted to open a vegan café for years, I feel the time is now to do something that is going to push me in the direction of following my dream! So I’ve started sharing some recipes I’ve created on my new blog, I’m going to open Magic Milk Bar this year, sure it might be small to begin with and will most likely be run out of my kitchen (the way it started I guess) 😉 but if I work harder it will become something bigger and better! (-= Check out some of my recipes and if you make any of them let me know what you think! ❤
Also if you live in Melbourne, Australia and want me to make you anything, let me know as I’m keen to start taking orders once I’ve got a certified kitchen sorted =-D

Here are a few photos from here and there over the last month, I am a bit behind with my video blogs, I will catch up soon though!

I fell in love with Melbourne in 2008, it was the beautiful old trees, the vegan food and there was just something wonderful and special about Melbourne that drew me to move from Brisbane to live here (winter 2011)!
I love Melbourne, but I need to toughen up and stop complaining at how damn cold it is getting! ha.

Zesty Almond Cheese

I have started a blog where I will be sharing more recipes on! Check out my vegan magic ❤

This is a rather scrummy an fairly simple cheese recipe. It is best if you use organic, fair-trade/local ingredients where possible =)

In a bowl soak ½ cup of Raw Almonds and ¼ cup of Sunflower Seeds overnight, drain and wash the nuts and seeds before using them.

In a high-speed blender blend the following until smooth.

Almonds & Sunflower seeds

½ cup of fresh Lemon Juice

¼ cup of fresh Orange Juice

¼ cup of water (this is optional, you can be the judge of how thick or thin you want the cheese to be)

1 pitted Medjool Date (use less if you don’t want a sweeter cheese)

½ teaspoon of Salt

Pour the smooth mixture into a jar or container of your choice.

Next put the following into a small bowl and mix well before tipping the mixture on top of the Zesty Almond Cheese.

Sigur Rós

Thursday was a boring day at home, the most exciting thing I did was making Shan’s awesome Mapo Tofu recipe which you can find in issue five of WILD FIRE =)

On Friday I went to Testing Grounds to see the beautiful Mother Cow my very talented vegan friend Soli made!

I hadn’t had dinner and was super hungry so Myke and I grabbed some vegan fast food from Lord of the Fries before we caught up with Frazer for some compassion meditation.

On Saturday I got to catch up with my beautiful friend Jena ❤ Who I have not seen in far too long!
We had a bite to eat at Smith and Daughters.

Later I saw Shan briefly for a chat before I headed to Loving Hut Northcote to have dinner with Chris, Miki and their beautiful daughter Izumi ❤ Kylie and Jas =) Myke joined us later on.
Then I said goodbye for now to my beautiful friend Frazer who is moving back to Adelaide temporarily, You are missed already!!

Gosh I love everyone in my life so incredibly much ❤ ❤ ❤

Have a wonderful week =)
