Plant-based Protein Hot Chocolate

This is not the first of my hot chocolates, but I feel it will be my last. You can easily blend the raw cacao powder into hemp seed milk, and I love the particular richness and thickness you get from the cacao and hemp seeds. Plus, I add teeccino, so there is an extra chocolate taste. The protein powder is not essential but for those of you who need extra protein, depth, and crave a grainy ...

Drink Hot Water to Detox, Energise and Lose Weight?

If there’s one simple practice that’s going to boost your energy, improve your circulation and performance, enhance weight loss and make you look better, what would that be? Drink hot water. Morning. In between meals. After meals. When I’m outside of Asia, a lot of people ask me why I order just plain hot water. Waiters would be perplexed and say “You just want hot water…?” And ...

Sore Muscles – Cacao, Kale, Acai Berry Smoothie

This bowl is fabulously easy, fabulously quick and everything can be bought at a health food store in your lunch hour. I love this recipe because it is packed with the most nutritious superfoods you can think of: Acai berry and kale.

Valentine’s Day Easy Superfood Chocolate Truffles

Are you irritated by the lack of dates this Valentine’s Day? :( It can be annoying, especially when you see advertisements of seemingly happily-ever-after couples devouring their heart-shaped chocolate truffles. “Darn, where’s my lover?” Before you sulk eating your pints of Ben & Jerry in front of the TV by yourself (don’t worry, you have company), you may want to think ...

Tangerines: The Most Overlooked Fruit Over Chinese New Year?

Fix Your Morning Routine for a 24-Hour Energy Boost

Yes…. most New Year’s “resolutions” end in failure, at least from what I’ve seen so far. They are either too general (“I want to be fitter!”) or they require too much hard work that takes sheer willpower and effort versus pleasure (i.e. six-pack ab in one-month while working 70-hour weeks and eating below 1,000 calories a day… ) *gasp* Since many of you are trying to start your year off ...
