We love baking, and this carrot, coconut and banana muffin is the perfect addition to the school lunch box mix. You can play around with flavours - we have added raspberries, dried apricots, or even dark choc chips. They always turn out perfectly moist and delicious and have been a hit in our whole neighbourhood.

Finely chopped or grated cauliflower is an amazing alternative to rice. It has a rice-like texture, which makes it a very clever and nutrition-packed way to sneak more veggies into your daily intake. This easy cauli fried "rice" recipe is a super quick dinner mashup that you can whip up with virtually any vegetables in your fridge. We used Hemple Hulled Hemp Hearts for extra flavour and a vegan friendly protein and essential fatty acid boost.
