MUSHROOM SERIES 3: EASY MISO SOUP WITH SHIITAKE MUSHROOMS (V+, GF, NF) + I TALK MACROBIOTICS

Meet my new favourite breakfast buddy: Miso Soup! I know it might sound weird, but I can promise you, it's weirdly wonderful :).

Actually, let me backtrack a little bit and tell you how I got to swap my fruity porridge for soup...

As those of you who have been reading the blog for some time know, I'm studying to be a nutritional therapist (Yup, Still. In year 2. One more year to go. And in case it's not blatantly obvious: I CAN'T WAIT TO GRADUATE! ;)). As part of my studies we were asked to partake in a diet experiment; we had to live a particular diet and lifestyle for one week and then write a report about our experience. Cool huh? 

By the time I had a chance to look at the options available to us, most of the diets were already taken:(  and I was left with only 4 possibilities: FODMAP, the GI diet, macrobiotic diet and the blood type diet. Sorry, but this was a no brainer for me. As a massive Madonna fan (this is her best album ever and this my favourite tune) I knew full well that Madonna partly attributed her healthy body to her macrobiotic diet and so I HAD to give it a try.

INTERVIEW WITH RUSSELL JAMES + RAW MEXICAN AVOCADO LIME SOUP WITH HOME-MADE RAW VEGAN SOUR CREAM

Though still in the midst of Winter, the sun was shining brightly the day I got to hang out with the most influential Raw Chef in the UK – Russell James. Many of you will know Russell from his youtube channel and other may know him from his popular blog The Raw Chef. I was lucky enough to meet him at an uber-cool converted South London warehouse which is his live/work space. It houses not one but two stunning, envy-worthy kitchens; the first kitchen Russell uses to teach his super popular raw food classes, the second one (an electric blue one nonetheless), is his personal kitchen which is as high tech as it is inviting and beautiful.

Now what do you do when you meet a vegan foodie superstar with more than 190,000 facebook followers? Talk plant-based food of course ;)
