Honeymoon Update and Raw Recipe Video Rewind: Pea & Mint Soup


I can’t believe it’s been two months since my last blog post!  So much has and hasn’t happened in that time.  We packed up our house and flew to Halifax, Canada to start our epic 2 year Americas honeymoon adventure…  and arrived to a mechanically unwell Hanna (our lovely motorhome that we shipped from Europe).

I haven’t been that raw since we arrived in Canada.  With the general upheaval and learning to live in a tiny space I haven’t been that motivated to eat lots of raw.  Plus, when I’m on holiday I normally relax my eating habits anyway.  This time is different though, as we’re away for such a long time and there’s no way I won’t eat raw for 2 years.  I’ve been experimenting with van-living healthy meals in the last week or so, which feels good.  We’ve found some fab vegan restaurants here too 🙂

We were paused in Halifax for 5 weeks, getting various bits and pieces mended on Hanna.  We’ve learnt not to make plans!  We had 2 false starts, so decided to practice giving up on specific plans altogether for the time being.  We managed a few BEAUTIFUL weekend forays out into Nova Scotia which sustained us through what was, at times, a very frustrating start to our trip.   We are now finally on our way and have driven almost all the way across Canada. We are presently enjoying the breathtaking scenery of The Rocky Mountains 🙂
