At Fivelements we are plugged into living with a conscious mindfulness. In a world that seems to be run by stress, we understand why it is so important to have an antidote that brings physical, mental and emotional calm. Here we present the second of our series of staff recommendations for how to ensure that balance, happiness and health, rather than stress, take over our lives.

“The best tool I’ve got to manage stress and multitasking is the one that serves me in all circumstances: conscious breathing.”

A beautifully moist and rich chocolate treat that’s full of goodness
I’ve used zucchini to make raw dips and zoodles. I’ve roasted them, baked them and eaten them raw. Because of their bland taste they are easy to mold into anything you want them to be, like these delicious brownies. Zucchini are particularly great for making cakes because their high water content makes it easy to achieve a moist cake. I also used Medicinal Flower Extracts because they are high quality extracts with such a range of flavors to choose from and xylitol from birch sap to reduce the sugar load.
Raw Chocolate Tarts
Makes 5 tarts
Deliciously chocolaty, these treats are full of nourishing goodness
These are not your average chocolate tarts. Packed with nutrients the chia seeds pack a calcium, protein and fiber punch, the avocados and bananas bring the potassium, plus the avos’ healthy fats, and the raw cacao powder is full of antioxidants. Scrunch through the irresistible flavors while knowing you’re doing your body, mind and soul plenty of good.
