There are a few places in the city I keep coming back […]
Now obviously a lot of us don’t want or need the nasties that go into processed yoghurt these days, so I have been waiting with very bated breath and literally searching everywhere (ask Lexi, she’ll confirm) for coconut yoghurt in South Africa. Since I had some in NYC last year, I was hooked! Imagine my excitement when I found these guys at the Waterfront (Food shed) at Yokos.
Listen, I am all about the smoothie breakfasts these days (in fact I have a smoothie recipe coming up soooooon as well!) but some days you just want to EAT something right? And finding a vegan/gluten free/dairy free/sugar free option is kinda difficult. I am not vegan – not yet anyway – but I do believe that avoiding meat in general is better for the planet AND ourselves. Besides, being allergic to eggs makes vegan breakfast kind of a natural decision. Now, it’s easy to be vegan if you are unhealthy. It is not easy to be vegan if you are trying to cut out wheat/gluten and sugar as well. That’s when you gotta start getting creative. Eating dinner for breakfast can be a thing, but sometimes rice and kale isn’t really that appealing before 7am in the morning…
That strange time between winter and spring is weird, it demands warm breakfasts yet tank tops and sandals. I needed a bit of morning warmth, so I adapted a recipe from Prava Singh’s healthy-eating blog, Naturally Nutritious Living (www.naturallynutritiousliving.co.za).
