ROSE FIG TARTINE
Writer / storyteller Sophie Haber pulls inspiration from nature and the women around her - all of which can be seen and tasted in this luscious, adaptogenic tartine she created for her monthly Sacred Women’s Writing Circle. In her words, a “treat to offer in honour of the full moon and to invoke the feminine. Yes, it is truly a feast to conjure oxytocin!” What magical nourishment Sophie has created- we need this in our lives.
GREEN SUPERFOOD VINAIGRETTE DRESSING
Slow food Chef + Photographer Rocio Graves shares one of her favorite ways to use Chlorella, Ashitaba and Moringa in this Green Superfood Vinaigrette Dressing recipe... this is the perfect addition to roasted vegetables, drizzled over seasonal fruits or as a simple salad dressing. We can't wait to whip up this antioxidant, mineral-rich vinaigrette.
UPGRADED AVOCADO TOAST
"If you enjoy foods that nourish your gut, hormones, and brain, you’ll be more likely to feel good. And from that place of feeling good, be able to work on changing your perception, what you’ve been conditioned to see." Cathryn Fowler has created an adaptogenic take on Avocado Toast - upgraded with our chlorella and a medicinal mushroom nut butter - to make you feel amazing. Watch her recipe and read more on her food philosophy below...

APHRODITE FACE MASK
