You can read her recipes for Pumpkin & Kale salad and her version of Chocolate Ice Magic - but raw! Here is a recipe of homemade baby food she used to make for Vince when he was first on solids.
:AVOCADO APPLE MOUSSE:
If you are able to purchase the following ingredients in organic that, naturally, would be the best!
1 ripe Avocado
1 peeled, cored apple
Pure water – approx. ¼ cup
• Using a chopping board and large knife, open up the avocado and take out the pip. Discard. With a dessert spoon scoop out the flesh into the food processor (or blender or jug using a Bamix)
• Cut apple into big chunks and put in with avocado
• Add a little water
• Process to a smooth consistency (add more water for a thinner mousse for a beginner eating solids)
• Baby enjoy!
• Baby Food may be stored in the fridge, but must be consumed within 2 days. To heat up, fill a bowl with hot water and place baby food bowl inside the water bowl.
• You are able to change this mousse by not using the apple but adding banana (ripe showing brown spots on the skin) or add a ripe peeled pear, or pineapple. (The sky is the limit)
• When baby gets older you might like to add sultanas, ground flaxseeds, pinch of cinnamon etc.
• You can also think about adding the organic baby rice for extra oomph (although this is not part of the raw foodism techniques)
• You can also make this into a chocolate mousse by adding carob powder.

|Seriously I just drooled a little. I know how amazing this tastes|
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
1-2 tablespoons olive oil (cold pressed, extra virgin, organic is best)
½ teaspoon salt (or you can use white Miso – yumm!)
1-2 cloves peeled garlic (depends on how garlicky you like it)
Fresh parsley, or purslane from your garden (google this – it is an edible weed and highly nutritious) or you can put any other herb that you like into the pot.
Now process the whole lot into a dip consistency.
Cut up celery and carrot sticks, and you can use some organic corn chips (original) and ENJOY!
• Organic ingredients are, of course, the best
• You might like to add some raw peeled beetroot to make this a beetroot dip. What about some raw Brazil Nuts or Cashews if you do not have a nut allergy?
• You can also change the oils – perhaps you might like to use Rice Bran Oil, or Macadamia Nut oil or a splash of Sesame Oil, etc.
Thanks Mummy! My mum makes that Avo dip for every function we go to or have and it's always a massive hit. Seriously, try it!
