New Healthy Cafe in Waterford! :)
So miss Avo Chemist, Waterford, Ireland!! Best Vegan Savory Crepe ever! And yummy Raw Raspberry Cheese cake!
I cook lovely food of that nature at home but this place blows me away with the savoury crepes and the bread is so moist it's absolutely amazing can't wait until my next trip to Waterford :-)
Avochemist are sensational. Vegan, dairy free and sugar free epicurean goodies that are entirely guilt free, absolutely delicious and prepared to international standards. We were so happy that Barbara could carter for the opening of our Wellness Centre. The array of food was dazzling. The chocolate mousse cups were satin smooth and luscious, the cookies crunchy, chewy and entirely wholesome. The choice selection of sandwiches on gluten free, yeast free bread were sensational, the dips and sauces superb accompaniments, the cauliflower “wings” with sesame and sunflower cream were demolished! Our guests were spoiled for choice. We are so lucky to have Avochemist in Waterford. Our opening was an entire success and Avochemist added that elegant touch of prestige and class to our day. Thank you! The Tramore Wellness Centre.

The Healthy Food & Juice Bar Vegan Friendly


This delicious, healing broth has also cleansing, and nourishing abilities and would be a great addition to your diet if you are experiencing any health issues.

It’s mineral rich, easy for the body to digest, assimilate and utilize. The ingredients provide many healing benefits from lowering the blood pressure, reducing inflammation, improving liver function, supporting skin, strengthening the immune system to providing powerful antiviral and antibiotic properties.

If you are currently fighting Corona virus, consume it as a strained broth for maximum healing benefits.

• 5 carrots
• 3 stalks of celery, roughly chopped
• 2 onions
• 1 bulb of garlic ( 7-8 cloves)
• 1 cup of shiitake mushrooms
• 1 inch of fresh ginger root
• 1 inch of fresh turmeric root ( or 1 tsp of dry turmeric powder)
• 1 cup parsley, roughly chopped
• 2 liters of filtered water
• Optional: your favourite herbs such as dill, lovage, coriander, thyme, chilli peppers


Place all ingredients in a pot and bring it to a boil. Lower the heat down and allow to simmer for about 2 hours.
Strain and sip for mineral rich, restorative broth or leave the veggies in for a light soup.

You can also use the broth as a base and add different veggies such as potatoes, broccoli, squash, asparagus, cauliflower.

The broth will keep for about 5-7 days in a fridge.

Stay well, stay safe.

Cucumber Juice 101 | Medical Medium 101

Cucumber juice is a great fever reducer for children and adults when you contract the virus! I have tried it on myself and my baby.
When Gabi had a high temperature, the juice calmed it down really quickly! I highly recommend it!

Stay safe, stay well. Fresh cucumber juice is the best rejuvenation tonic in the world. Cucumber juice is a highly alkalizing and hydrating drink that is rich in nutrients such as vitamins A, C, K, magnesium, silicon, and potassium.

How do I build my baby's immune system?

She eats exactly what I eat... Since she turned 6 months old we've introduced solids through baby led weaning... That has been an incredible journey!
She loves her fruits and vegetables, juices and smoothies!

We both enjoy our morning routine of drinking celery juice and eating delicious fruits :)

That's our way to kick start the day! Supporting our liver with nutrient packed, light, hydrating meals.

Kids mirror our behavior so if you want to introduce some healthier eating habits in your household, start with yourself :)
I am saying that with much love and respect... We are all different and have different needs but now is the time to up level our nutrition and food choices.

Bring nutrient packed foods (fruit and veggies) into your kitchen and let your baby try it. If She doesn't want it, don't force it, but keep offering it every day. When your baby will see you doing or eating something every single day, She might really surprise you...

Stay well, stay safe!

Protect yourself with these foods:

RAW GARLIC is powerful antiviral food containing phytochemical allicin- a sulfur compound that prevents disease. It fights cold, flue and viruses, giving you strong immunity boost!
If you want to protect yourself from possible virus contraction, consider eating one to two cloves of raw garlic every day or make yourself this super strong Antibiotic!

GINGER- Powerful antiviral. Has an ability to bring the body out of reactive state, release the pain, soothe the digestive system.

HONEY- Incredible medicinal nourishment. The fructose and glucose in honey is saturated with thousands of phytochemical compounds and agents including pathogen killers, phytochemicals that protect you from radiation damage, cancer. Raw honey repairs DNA and is extremely high in minerals such as calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium, phosphorus, chromium, molybdenum, and manganese.
Our immune systems are constantly adapting to whatever microorganisms we encounter—which is why raw honey- most adaptogenic food in the planet ( produced by most
adaptogenic beings) is so important for our immune system.

LEMON- great for the immune system, detoxifying and cleansing the liver, rehydrating the body, helps with nausea.



- whole garlic head
- 1 lemon
- 3 Tbsp. raw honey
- 1 inch fresh ginger
- 1 glass of boiled water (lukewarm)
You can also add turmeric (1 tsp) if you like for an extra anti-inflammatory benefits.

Mince garlic, grate fresh ginger, squeeze the juice from lemon, add honey and water. Put everything in a clean jar, shake it well and leave it in the fridge for min. 24hrs. Strain it if you wish.
Drink 1 Tbsp every morning and night.

Stay strong and well.

Why am I drinking celery juice every morning?

Celery is one of many ANTIVIRAL foods that strengthens the immune system.
Fresh celery juice contains sodium cluster salts that fight off viruses and kill viral overgrowth as they travel through our digestive organs. It works like an antiseptic.

Celery juice also contains a unique variety of vitamin C that doesn’t require methylation in the liver for the body to use it therefore it is boosting the immune system immediately in its bio available form.

It has many more benefits including helping with digestion and weight management…

Its best to drink it plain, freshly squeezed in the morning on an empty stomach.

Aim for 500ml
Juice one or two bunches (depends on a size), drink immediately.

Wait at least half hour before you have a breakfast.

If you are new to celery, start with one 250ml glass and gradually increase the quantity.


Hi Guys, it's been a long time I know...

The little Avochemist is closed but I am still here.

Since then,my journey has taken me through Spain then to Motherhood Land to finally start again...

I have learned so much more about how to nurture our body and mind through nutrition, healthy mindset and self care. In the process I became certified health coach.

I am still very passionate about making healthy food taste delicious. And about helping people discover the life-changing power of real food!

Join me again on your wellness journey and have fun!

Ladies, the recipe for the gluten free bread that I have made today:

Dry ingredients:
• 100 g buckwheat flour
• 100 g white rice flour
• 100 g chickpea flour
• 40 g potato starch or tapioca flour
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 1/2 tsp baking soda
• 1 tsp sea salt
• 50g sunflower seeds
Psyllium mixture:
• 450 ml water
• 30 g psyllium husk powder

In a bowl combine psyllium husk powder with water and stir immediately. It will start thickening and you will get gel-like mixture. Set aside for 15 min.
In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients, add it to a psyllium husk mixture and knead for about 5-10 min.
If the dough appears too wet, sprinkle it with 1-2 tbsp potato or tapioca flour. If it feels too dry, add a little water.

Shape a dough in a round loaf and place it onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle a little bit of flour onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 1 hr in pre-hated to 180°C oven
