I recently took this cake to a workshop and I was inundated with requests for the recipe. It is a ripper for the gluten intolerant, and for those of us who just like chocolate cake.

Each year at the Annual End of Year Restorative session, we are always asked about recipes for the yummy treats we serve at the end of the class. This year was no exception.

After many requests, here is my favourite 'vegie' burger. They are actually lentil and chickpea burgers but in our house they have always been called vegie burgers because the kids wouldn’t eat ‘Lentil and Chickpea’ burgers!

It's fair to say that I am not a huge fan of the cold weather. I was born in Queensland and my mum always says it was in the middle of a heat wave and that she doesn’t know how I survived as a baby in such heat. I like this. It explains why I do love the heat so much and struggle in the cold (well that’s my excuse anyway).

As some of you will know from class or from my earlier post, I won a recipe competition. The prize included having my recipe published in an International recipe book. After almost a year, the book has arrived.

We had a lovely night last Tuesday night at the n8Yoga Restorative Yoga class. Not only was there beautiful restorative Yoga, there was also some beautiful, nourishing food!

You could be forgiven for thinking this Yoga blog is a food blog. Oh well, what can I say? It’s another passion: real, whole food. It is all connected and part of the Yogic lifestyle. And the title quote from Michael Pollan is one of my favourites.

In an attempt to justify the amount of yummy French chocolate I bought home with me, I decided to google its benefits.
