Happy Valentine’s Day! In light of this celebration of love, flowers and cheap chocolate, I want to share with you a recipe for a vegan, raw and processed-sugarless chocolate pudding. This sweet, creamy desert takes minutes to throw together in a blender or food processor. It can be topped off with sliced bananas, pistachios, pecans or coconut flakes, but today I would recommend a little sea salt to bring out the chocolate flavour and strawberries to get that aphrodisiac effect, you cheeky monkey you. – 2 ripe avocados – 2 tablespoons coconut oil – 1/3 cup agave (you can also…

The principles of Feng Shui involve harmonizing the human experience with the surrounding environment. It’ about optimizing the energy flow in your space to get more energy, balance and prosperity from it.
