Aboutlife Natural Marketplace have opened up a new store in Double Bay! This store is massive and is a one-stop shop for all health food needs, wholefoods and natural organic products. Aboutlife stocks a large variety of chemical free and organic produce, as well as an in store café specialising in organic coffees, raw super-food smoothies and juices!
Last Thursday night I visited the store for a wellness evening with the Healthy chef Teresa Cutter and Aboutlife's Wellness Ambassador, Vladia Cobrdova.
We spent the night making edible flower pot salads (and sipping green juice!) yes, the dirt was even edible too and boy did it taste amazing! You can find the recipe in the link below for Teresa Cutter's website: Click Here for Teresa Cutter's Flowerpot Salad Recipe

RAW WATERMELON CAKE
I couldn't help but to share this recipe from Aboutlife! This raw watermelon cake is a great idea (especially with summer coming up) for get-togethers or parties!
Raw Watermelon cake recipe
RW, VG, WG, SF
This is one of the easiest and most impressive cakes to bring to any party or to enjoy at home. It is healthy and delicious without adding any sugar.
1 whole watermelon
½ cup chia seeds
21/3 cups coconut milk
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 cup mango, frozen or fresh
1 cup coconut flakes
1 cup sliced fresh seasonal fruit
Blend together all ingredients apart from the watermelon and decoration and let this sit for two hours in the fridge. Place the whole watermelon on a chopping board, cut both ends and turn so it sits flat. With a sharp knife cut the rind carefully, shaping into a sphere that resembles a cake.
Pat the watermelon with a dry towel and then ice with the chilled mixture using a spatula.
Decorate with coconut flakes and fruit.
