Adzuki Bean (Red Bean) Paste

Adzuki beans are a wonderfully nourishing food source, except when they are combined with a lot of other unhealthy ingredients such as sugar. The base of many red bean recipes is adzuki beans pastes include sugar as one of the key ingredients. In my Red Bean Paste recipe below I only utilise the natural sweetness of the red bean itself, enhanced by the natural sugar in dates. This recipe is so easy to make and only requires 2 ingredients. Yes, the adzuki beans do take a while to cook, but why not utilise this time efficiently and do your yoga practice, meditate, read…or even research new places to travel and explore, putting your taste buds to the ultimate test out on the road. … More Adzuki Bean (Red Bean) Paste


Exotic Dragon Fruit Smoothie

Dragon Fruit (or Pitaya) brings back so many nostalgic childhood memories for me. My mum use to buy all the exotic fruits from the Asian Grocers for my sisters and me that you would not find as readily in Woolworth and Coles such as dragon fruit, durian, rambutan, and star fruit to name a few.

An added bonus is that this fruit not only has a high water content (keeps our thirst quenched) but is also low in calories and fat! So load up on this superfruit to eat it raw, make melon balls out of it and of course try out my Exotic Dragon Fruit Smoothie recipe below mixed with a range of other nutrient dense fruits and vegetables to keep you going and glowing all day long! … More Exotic Dragon Fruit Smoothie
