It’s All Good. Or is it?

IMG_3915

I’m a bit of a health food fan and a bit of a Gwyneth fan, so when she released It’s All Good, I’m a little ashamed to admit that mine was probably one of the first orders Amazon received.

Who am I kidding? I’m a huge fan. Of both the above.

The idea of lots of delicious recipes filled with only healthy ingredients was too much for me to resist.

It’s wheat, dairy and gluten free as well as being suitable for vegans – so it can be enjoyed by everybody!

It is the brainchild of Laura Coxeter who must be very clever indeed as this is quite the original recipe – avocado in a cake? Really?

It’s a chocolate torte but it’s made solely from very healthy ingredients including nuts, dates, avocado, coconut oil, pure cacao and agave syrup. There is no flour, butter or sugar. Continue reading
