Wild foraging is also a passion of mine, one which I am constantly learning more about. My life is dedicated to learning and sharing every aspect of life in the raw, from seed ~ stomach ~ spirituality and sensuality. My other loves are of spending time with loved ones Anthony and our tribe of furry companions, reading, researching, writing and a little radical rebellion...my aim here to you is to walk with you while we change our world, one meal at a time Inlakesh Peace xxx

The most awesome breakfast smoothie

Morning, early start today as I was going to be on a farmers market in Towcester, but, after a night working through deep thoughts, I woke at 5.30, got up and started catching up on lots of things that had been pushed to one side due to being so busy!  You know how it is, paperwork just gets put in a dark corner and grows cobwebs!

Anyway, that is now all sorted into more digestible bits and the hoovering is done, altar cleaned and tidied, all crystals dusted and re-arranged...lovely way to start the day...

Now, to food!  I love having a liquid meal in a glass...very decadent ones at times.  Here is what I just made...

Chocolate Avocado Smoothie

2 bananas
1 large avocado
1 heaped dessert spoon of either my chocolate Elixir powder OR just raw cacao powder
11/2 pint filtered water
some agave if you like it sweet

place all in the blender wizz until lovely and creamy.

Sit down and drink it all up, then enjoy your chocolate moustache!  This is the most filling and satisfying breakfast drink ~ especially with the Elixir in it as it contains some of the highest nutritional foods on the planet!



  1. Yum :) !! Can you advise what to add to a smoothie to help me with my skin at the moment? It's very dry and because of this, also producing alot of oil. I was wondering if avocado may help??

  2. Avocados are rich in all the good fats we need for health so yeah they are one of the perfect foods to eat daily...you can also make a face mask with them too...very moisturising. Dry skin can be indicative of other things in your environment and diet that you need to look into...try keeping a diary of all you eat each day, what your moods are like, where you are working, how much water and water foods you take in and what chemicals you use daily around the home including tap water and cleaning products...
