Week One

5 Ways to Feel Good from the Inside Out Simone Perele Series

Our first look from the Simone Pérèle “Happy Therapy” collection is the Blue Blossom Delice Half Cup Bra which in addition to its feel-good colour also features transparent cups to highlight the feminine lace embroidery against the skin. The firm opaque mesh back also lends solid support which will make you feel secure, structured but pretty.

According to colour psychology, blue purple and lavender colour tones symbolise creative imagination and spirituality. As a reaction to the soft violet hues, our minds and imagination are stimulated so as an introspective colour, lavender allows us to get in touch with our deeper thoughts. Who would have thought wearing purple would have such an effect! Now onto the deliciously healthy recipe part…..

Raw Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Recipe

The Wholefood Wellness foodie has created a blue blossom-inspired Raw Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake to complement the lavender tones of Simone Pérèle collection colours.

It’s no secret that blueberries are one of the richest sources of antioxidants and contain the health-promoting element vitamin C, which is important for strengthening the immune system and promotes skin glow.  The raw inspired recipe has also stripped back any highly processed ingredients, full cream dairy and refined sugars that you would normally see in supermarket cake aisle. So feel free to treat yourself to as many slices as you want!

Method

For the Base:


1. In a high-speed blender or food processor, pulse the almonds, walnuts, shredded coconut, buckinis, cinnamon and Himalayan salt for a few seconds. Add the medjool dates, cacao nibs and cacao powder to the blender. Blend until well combined and the base forms a dough

2. Add the medjool dates, cacao nibs and cacao powder to the blender. Blend until well combined and the base forms a dough

3. In a cake tin lined with baking paper, press the base mixture until you have an even surface. Set aside while you make the filling.

For the Filling

1. In a high-speed blender or food processor whiz together all the filling ingredients. If you wish to create a marbled swirl on the top of the cake, leave out the blueberries at this point. Blend until the filling is smooth and there are not lumps from the cashews.

2. Remove 1/3 cup of the filling and put aside.

3. Add the frozen blueberries to the blender with the remainder of the filling. Pour on top of the cake base.

4. Using the 1/3cup of filling to form the swirl, add dollops on top of the cake. Using a skewer create zig-zags from one side of the tin to the other.

5. Place in the freezer to set for 3 hours then transfer to the fridge to soften.
