I think pizza is one of those that tastes better when shared, there's something ultimately satisfying about seeing someone mirroring your own enjoyment, and the size of those things, well, it's meant to be shared. One of my favourite things to eat before I knew about my allergies was simple just tomato, avocado, feta and black pepper on bread. So simple yet so delicious, so I thought I'd replicate that and get Tom to come over, talk some yoga and try his first raw pizza.
When I was growing up everyone told me to drink milk because it was good for me. Even though I hated the taste and it made me feel sick, I still had to endure it - it's good for your bones, it makes you grow, it's the best source of calcium! Yet there are many foods out there that contain better fats, more calcium, more nutrients and less side effects. This is a great article which gives a detailed insight into the truth about dairy.
I love making raw cheese, it's so simple and the possibilities are endless. Whatever you feel like, you can just throw in the blender and whip up. The base for the cheese I do are nuts. I try to steer away from soy and tofu, different nuts will give it a different texture and flavour, much like the cheese varieties you find in the shops now. I wanted to make a plain tomato and avocado pizza for dinner so I thought I'd add a bit more oomph with a black pepper creme cheese. This you can eat on it's own with crackers, or sprinkled on top of salad. Delicious!

I'm Binny, a full time Bikram Yoga teacher and studio owner that lives in Perth, Australia.
I started this blog to share the things I love the best in the world: being healthy and happy, food (especially raw), yoga, traveling and most importantly, learning how to love and be true to myself.
I suffered from severe digestive problems when I was younger, being gluten and lactose intolerant, and developed compartment syndrome and fibromyalgia in my teens. I have lived with constant pain for over 16 years now.
Over the past 10 years, I've shifted to a mainly plant based diet and realised that being well and healthy is a way of life. I have been teaching Bikram yoga since 2011, in the US and Australia. Due to my health issues I've also had a lot of bodywork done as well as explored alternative therapies.
I've become much more aware of myself as a result of all this - physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Right now I love my life. In my career I love what I do and I do what I love. I have traveled to some amazing places around the world and made lifelong friends. In between working and traveling, I cook up a storm in the kitchen, especially raw desserts, spend time with the people I love the best, which now includes a yoga husband, a mini yogini Estell, and our dog! I try to listen to my body the best I can.
I truly believe that we all have the power and the capabilities to heal our own bodies, to nourish the spirit and seek our own happiness and life's purpose. This my journey...
