Why You Should Be Drinking Kombucha!

Why You Should Be Drinking Kombucha!

Kombucha is everywhere at the moment. It is now available in most supermarkets and a lot of wine bars and breweries have started listing it as a non-alcoholic option.  It's fruity and bubbly and delicious but most importantly it is a low sugar, good for the gut alternative to fizzy drinks such as coke and sprite.  For all those sceptics out there, we thought we would outline three of the top benefits of drinking kombucha. 1. Kombucha is rich in beneficial probiotics Due to the fermentation process that occurs, it is rich in probiotics. Probiotics are made up of good...

Orange & Blueberry French Toast

Orange & Blueberry French Toast

Move over pancakes, french toast is the new weekend breakfast on the block.  So many people think french toast is an unhealthy option for breakfast and with so many cafes opting to top their french toast with ice cream, strips of streaky bacon and sugary crumbs, I can certainly see why that is the case.  But it doesn't have to be! Grab some good quality, sturdy bread. Dunk it in a mixture of eggs and orange juice along with some spices, fry in a little bit of coconut oil and top with greek yoghurt and fresh fruit and all of...

At MOD, we are passionate about reducing the amount of waste produced whether that be through less plastic packaging on our products or simply by reducing the amount of food that is wasted each and every day.  Many people may think that the process of juicing is wasteful as the pulp of the fruit or vegetable is essentially removed from the juice, and more often than not, this is then tossed in the bin. But we are here to show you that the pulp of most produce that you juice can be repurposed into something else entirely.  One of our favourite uses...

Mulled Wine with your MOD Cold Press Juicer

Mulled Wine with your MOD Cold Press Juicer

One of my fondest memories about the New Zealand ski fields is after a big morning of skiing we would all meet up at the on-mountain cafe and order rounds of mulled wine. The perfectly spiced, heart-warming beverage was the perfect reward for spending the morning on the slopes. Now everytime winter descends and the mornings become covered in frost, my mind goes straight to making mulled wine.  Making mulled wine at home is very easy and quick to do. I love using the MOD Cold Press Juicer for this recipe so even though this drink is indulgent, I feel...

Healthy 1908 Biscuit Recipe

Healthy 1908 Biscuit Recipe

An absolute kiwi classic.  Growing up in New Zealand, these biscuits remind me going away to school camp when my grandmother would load me up with dozens of these biscuits to share amongst friends.  The smell of toasted cornflakes and chocolate is a well known smell to a lot of kiwis so I thought I would try and recreate these with a bit of MOD twist.  Unlike the originals, these biscuits are completely refined sugar free, gluten free and dairy free and they can be whipped up in a few minutes using our MOD Blend Pro.

Carissa Mason's One Plate Pancakes (GF | DF)

Carissa Mason's One Plate Pancakes (GF | DF)

Growing up my favourite breakfast in the world was pancakes. The batter was a simple white flour, white sugar, milk and egg mixture, and then smothered in pancake syrup, berries, icing sugar and on occasion, whipped cream. As I got older and became more aware of healthy living, the idea of loading up on that amount of sugar in the morning became extremely unappealing.  Thankfully, now there are so many pancake recipes out there that still taste just as delicious but will not provide you with that 10am sugar crash.  Nutritionist Carissa Mason kindly shared her go-to pancake recipe that is so...

Mango & Greens Smoothie

Mango & Greens Smoothie

This bright green tropical smoothie is filled with all the good stuff.  Hemp seeds are now available in most supermarkets and are a great source of both protein and essential fatty acids.
