Happy FRIDAY everyone! I had a busy day yesterday so I combined the star ingredients from Days 18 +19 to make a delicious Watercress and Beetroot Salad. Watercress is an aquatic plant renowned for its vivid green colour and unique peppery flavour. This pretty little delicate green is fortified with more that 15 essential vitamins … More Alkaline Watercress and Beetroot Salad
Day 17 (wow can’t believe it!!) of Welcome to Wellness and today we focus on Green Tea. Green tea is the healthiest beverage on the planet (or, maybe second behind Prosexxy?!). I drink at least one cup every day, and shock horror, my husband has now become obsessed with it. He notices he feels more … More Matcha Latte and Green Tea Oats
As you know, the philosophy of Imperfectly Pure is 80% Natural + 20% Naughty = 100% Balanced Wellness! I believe it’s really important to do all the things you love, even if they are not necessarily “good” for you. They are probably “good” for you in the more unconventional sense, like they make you feel … More Raw Chocolate Truffles and a Tart
Yesterday’s spotlight ingredient (of Day 16 “Welcome to Wellness”) was the Onion (don’t cry about it ;-)) sooo I have updated last weeks success the Broccoli and Artichoke Bread.

Lo and behold there are so many on the internet!! SO WEIRD!! Anyway…there are loads of benefits to Apples! … More Apples , and Pink Ladies (anyone?!?) “the pink ladies pledge is to act cool, to look cool and to be Cool! Til death to us part, THINK PINK!”

I have been reading lots about Ayurvedic Healing and Medicine this week, and am really interested in it. As suggested in Ayurveda, I sometimes … More Ayurvedic Ginger Tea to boost metabolism
So, the subject of this post I think is something that a lot of people can relate to: how to begin to Balance and Calm the Mind. This is, I believe, a never-ending and constantly changing journey. For me, this Journey began with finding Yoga at Bikram Yoga Chiswick , and something that Fed says during class really … More “The Mind Is Everything. What We Think We Become”
So I have been explaining to lots of my amazing friends this week (week 2 since Imperfectly Pure launched!! wwwop!!), what I mean by Wellness, and so thought it would be nice to write a little blog all about it, so that it will help you to see if you think you need it in … More What Does Wellness Actually MEAN!??!?!

I’m not sure why, it could be because I am a pretty inoffensive person, maybe that’s why I am drawn to some pretty offensive flavours! The ones that some people LOVE and some people HATE. I sit firmly in the Love camp … More Cinnamon Chia Pudding
