I have had a busy week and to be honest just didnt feel like writing.
Ive taken photos of some of the meals ive made. I have had a big shift 4 days ago, my body decided to let go and it felt good.
Turn away if your squemish……
I have been having the best poops ever. The ones when it feels like you have thoroughly been. My skin is feeling softer and I had more energy until ive hit a slump today. I have had a few emotional days with old stuff coming up to heal right back to my teenage years.
On Thursday I attended a great ecstatic dance class it was beautiful, I got to dance shake and play until my body was wet with sweat it was just what I needed.
Food…. ive been having smoothie bowls or overnight oats for breakfast. Fruit and a few naked bars for snacks, smoothies with kombucha and clean water. Im adding more raw foods to my evening meals.
Ive just had a cooked brunch of courgette, onion, beans, vege sausage and I made some butter bean scotch cakes and kimchi on the side.
- 1 can butter beans
- 3 tbs milled linseed (soaked for 15)
- Gf flour
- mash the butter beans
- Add into the soaked linseed
- Add third cup water
- Add salt & pepper to taste
- Add flour until firmer consistency
- Make into patties
- Fry in olive or coconut oil until firm
For tonight ive prepared raw pesto courgette with salad, onion, basil and kimchi. (Pic below)
Some meals from the week:
Porridge soaked with linseeds, hemp, cacao, blueberries and maca.
Salad with tbs vegan cheese mixed with vegan salad cream and topped with fried onions, walnuts and flaked almonds.
Smoothie bowl with nut milk, peanut butter, banana, maca, linseeds, hemp and topped with chopped nuts.
Similar to above with cherries, cinnamon and ginger.
Cheers! Kombucha 💜
Last night my eldest Grandson Archie stayed over night. On the way home I asked him what he plans to do with his weekend he, said erm…. Play, Colouring in and have a roast dinner 😁 he surely is a chip off the block!
Maybe you’ve guessed it already… Today I decided its play day. I love to colour and have plenty of pens, pencils and colouring books. So thats what we did, we played, coloured in and went to the park. We laughed so much, I love our time together its so precious.
Breakfast today I kept with the play theme and created a raw gluten vegan free muesli in a jelly mould because I can 😛
I took lots of pics and have created my first video recipe so please be kind if you watch it. I enjoyed playing and creating with the camera and video settings. I will upload to my youtube channel but its locked me out at the moment.
The muesli was scrummy!!! I had it at 9am and again at 1pm with water, chaga and green tea. I then went to hang out with a friend for a bit I had an almond milk chai and on the way home I drove past Little Tofu a Vegan friendly chinese takeaway I decided to have one, I got vegetable rice and crispy chilli tofu. I came home, got comfy and enjoyed it. It wasnt the soup that I was planning on having but hey ho on the grand scale its pretty healthy, made with love and that’s the beauty of a longer cleanse it is about being flexible and gradually sinking in deeper to the cleanse.
Tomorow will be a flexible day as I am out all day. I am going to make a few green smoothies to take with me.
Monday I will start juicing as well as smoothies. I am feeling the benefits already, I have more clarity of thought and generally better all round.
Ive taken measurements of my bust, waist and hips today before the chinese 😁
Happy New Moon Love Stella x
I woke up feeling good after my first day yesterday. Ive had a few moments of hunger pangs this morning I have kept busy and acknowledged the feelings and emotions associated. Ive wrote in my journal, practised Qigong and some yoga.

This made enough to fill one large voss bottle. Im drinking it now at 2.18pm
So tonight’s dinner didnt go to plan as I was out at My Daughters house. I had a can of split pea soup with rice at 5pm then back at home courtesy of my Daughter Charlotte 💜 baked sweet potato with some hummus, broccoli and kale at 8pm.

Ok! So firstly to all the grammar police you may wish to find another post to read 😁
I allowed my dyslexia and fear of the grammar police to stop me sharing for far too long. Five plus years ago I thought fuck it! Im entilted to share my story as much as anyone and so this blog began alongside my Vegan journey.
Alot has happened in my life since then, more about that another day.
I am a qualified holistic nutritionist with over 18 years experience. Since learning the Taoist Yin Yang Philosophies of health alongside my Tai Chi and Qigong practice for the last 14 years its changed how I view nutrition and health as some of you reading who have been to my talks or workshops will know.
When I give my beautiful body a big cleanse I start out gently cleansing my colon for as long as it takes. I listen to my body for when to transition into the deeper phases and I build up to juice only fasting then water fasting. This is the same process I use for my clients its about listening to your body and working with it not forcing it harshly.
Today, Day One I have only had water and a barley cup (coffee alternative) its 13.30pm.
The kick off green smoothie!
Makes 3 wine glasses worth, I like using wine glasses for my smoothies sometimes.
- 2 tsp ground linseed
- 2 tsp ground hemp
- 2 tsp psyllium husk
- 2 tsp chia seeds
Place the above in your blender, I have a vitamix now however when I started out I only had a cheap one. Leave to soak in some apple juice for 15 mins.
- 1 banana
- 2 handfuls fresh spinach
- 1 cup apple juice
- Few apricot kernals
- Half tsp spirulina powder
- Half tsp wheatgrass powder
- Half tsp barleygrass powder
- 1 tsp baobab powder
- Half tsp maca powder
- 1 tsp cacao powder
Whizz up and Enjoy 💜
Or check out Goddess Smoothie and add linseeds/psyllium if you have it.
This is filling and delicious, it will help to gently ease your body into cleansing mode. If you are carrying alot of toxins or have not cleansed before reduce the green powders and add extra spinach or kale. You can amend where necessary the important part is that it contains the linseeds and pysllium husk.
I am having this smoothie at 2pm then a light dinner of veg curry courtesy of my Daughter Yasmin 💜 made with lots of veg, coconut milk, madras curry powder and mango chutney ill have with quinoa tonight at 5pm and lots of distilled water, which im adding one drop of food grade juniper berry oil and warm chaga and mate tea.
I will have an epsom salt bath tonight, dry body brushing, massage my body with oils and practice Qi gong and some Yoga before bed.
I will keep you updated throughout my cleanse which will be a minimum of 28 days.
Chaga Tea made with mate, nettle, turmeric, 2 cloves, ginger and cinnamon. Yum!
Veg Curry and Quinoa round the fire in the garden to celebrate solstice 💜 9pm in the end. Bit late, I got carried away re-potting my plants 😁
Ive had a really enjoyable day despite the migraine the first half of day. Ive only had 3 glasses of kick off smoothie between 2/4pm, one solid meal at 9pm and lots of water and 3 chaga teas.
Tomorow I will pretty much repeat and add in some cardio excercise, maybe a bike ride.
