‘Energy Bites’ – Raw Chocolate Treats

RAW CHOCOLATE

As promised, here’s a little sneaky-peek pre-publication recipe from our new book ‘Energy Bites’ and what better place to start than with healthy chocolate!

I love raw chocolate, so this recipe just had to be in the book. They’re seriously good – gluten-free, dairy free, raw, easy to make and the best bit, totally free of refined sugar! The only problem is that you’ll want to eat loads of them … they don’t last long in our house.

They also store really well in the freezer. Just take them out 5 minutes before eating and enjoy a little taste of healthy decadence whenever you feel the need! We love them…

‘Energy Bites’

EnergyBites6

Back in those lazy, hazy days of Summer I was approached by a publisher and asked to collaborate with established cookery writer, Annie Nichols, on a little cookbook of super-healthy and delicious snacks – the sort of thing that I’ve been putting in my kids lunch boxes and taking to our allotment garden for years.

My blog and Instagram were put on hold as I focused on creating, testing and writing recipes and here is the result of all that hard work – ‘Energy Bites’ … with a mega-bright cover! Packed full of sweet and savoury, great tasting, high energy snacks that are incredibly good for you – vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy free and totally free of refined sugar.

Biodynamic Gardening Book

bookgiveaway

How exciting is this! Last year we were approached by publishers Dorling Kindersley and asked if our allotment garden could be featured in a new biodynamic gardening book. And here it is…..

We spent 6 months working closely with the publishers and other hugely inspiring biodynamic farmers and gardeners to produce a simple yet comprehensive book about the wonders of biodynamic gardening.

It covers all sorts of fantastic topics from the principles of ‘BD’ gardening to specific planting tips, teas and tinctures, sowing guides, compost heaps, preparations, tree care, natural pest control and more. Practical step-by-step instructions make the book very easy to follow and the photos are brilliant! The book is available in bookshops, on Amazon and the Dorling Kindersley website.

To celebrate its release, we’re giving away one lovely copy of the book. For your chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post. I’ll put your names in a big hat and draw the lucky winner on the 11th April 2015. 

Results will be posted on my blog and Instagram account, so remember to check back with me then! The competition  is open worldwide.

Best of luck and happy gardening…..
