Did you know that you can make hummus with other peas/legumes? This hummus recipe is made with edamame, which lends a beautiful green colour and a sweet nutty taste.

  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 packet or tsp spirulina
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • green onions
METHOD
  1. Add the edamame to your food processor, with water, tahini, olive oil, and sesame oil and puree for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add the lemon juice, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, and 1/4 tsp green onions and puree again for 4-5 minutes, or until you get an extra creamy texture.

Why I transitioned to a plant-based, wholefoods lifestyle and became a Health Coach!

Eating more plants has become my way to show compassion to my own body and share this choice with others. Plants are nutrient power-houses providing us with fiber, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and so much goodness all around. My day to day lifestyle is supported by what I bring into my home, the foods you will find in my fridge, and my pantry, the ingredients I use when baking and and it is all about how it makes me feel.

These living foods, straight out of nature, are healing; they fuel and satisfy my needs.Once I found the motivation to keep on exploring more sustainable ways to live the plant based lifestyle, and especially seeing how it impacted my health, it was a no brainer. I fell in love. It’s about keeping myself accountable. It clearly became a journey, a true commitment. It’s basically a shift of your mindset.

This mindset is the vehicle in supporting others towards a transformational and sustainable healthier living.
