About Life recently opened a store in Port Melbourne. I have to admit to being a little bit sceptical since it looked on the surface to be just another up market grocery store with extortionately high prices but I am glad to say I was wrong! It is a gold mine of fabulously healthy foods at reasonable prices, an amazing cafe, a great healthy takeaway section and the best bit is there are lots of things that you get to taste before you buy – the nut butters are sensational!
What did peak my interest most was the range of raw food desserts! Seriously, the Chocolate Mint Slice and Passionfruit Cheesecake style desserts are the best! They taste amazing considering they contain no sugar, no dairy and no gluten! I want to share this with you as I love cooking but myself and many of my friends have low tolerances or have allergies to many every day things. This is in conflict with my love of food. It does not stop me from cooking a myriad of dishes, I just have a small taste of certain things rather than a big slice! As a result, I am open to creating amazing tasting desserts that are healthy and have unexpected ingredients – the Magic Bean Cake, Magic Mint Chocolate Mousse and Chocolate Berry Chia Pudding with Cashew Cream recipes are the only recipes I have tried so far that I am happy with! Watch out for more – I am on a quest to seek out recipes to try so I can share them with you. I will only post recipes I feel are truly amazing and close to the real thing. Would love to hear your feedback on what you would like to see!
