I’ve had the best week! To my shock and amazement I won The Soil Association BOOM Award for best food blog of the year…which is such on honour. I couldn’t have been more surprised when I heard my name read out (as I am still) but I’m so happy and excited that my little blog and passion for healthy food and taking pics obsessively has a few fans!
So back to the food, I made this super delicious raw lemon cheesecake before we went to Spain and honestly it’s incredibly easy to make, contains only natural whole ingredients and has just a little maple syrup to sweeten the lemon topping a little. And just like my lemon bars, I love the combination of creamy and zingy lemony cashew topping with the crunchy nutty base. So good, you’ve got to try this one!
Until a few years ago I wouldn’t have allowed myself to eat this deliciously tasty and wholesome cake, which is another thing to be happy and grateful for. When I reflect on just how much my attitude to food has changed over the last few years, as for so long I had a huge list of ‘forbidden’ or ‘bad’ foods which I didn’t allow myself to eat which included; high fat, processed, sugar, most fruits, high carb etc etc. To put it in context although I have always been really focused on ‘healthy’ eating and eaten loads of veg and pulses I still had lots of rules which meant I had a somewhat restricted diet.
It’s so liberating to know that as long as I’m eating real food and yes this can include healthy fats, natural sugars, healthy carbs – it will nourish my body and give it what it needs.
