Eating Out in Dublin: Alchemy Juice Bar

alchemy juice

What a treasure and welcome addition to Dublin city food scene. You'll find lots of juices, raw salads and treats to entice you in this ultra modern little cafe. A very simple layout but relaxing at the same time. If you're alone, like I was, you can read a magazine or people watch through the massive windows in the seated area. It's located on the first floor of BT2 in Grafton Street. 

Homemade Apple Puree

If you love stewed apple then you'll love this. A very versatile recipe as it can be used as an egg replacer, topping for your gluten-free porridge. Or as above top off with whipped up coconut milk, or organic soya, and toasted nuts. 


Chickpea & Sweet Potato Wrap

Love this recipe as it's a great one to share with friends and whip up quickly if they happen to drop in suddenly on you. It's satisfying too. The first time I made it I just dumped all the ingredients into a bowl and ate away. I wasn't expecting much. Yet it's just nice in a good way. Ideal for an autumnal evening and you grave some comfort food. So for those times you have an unexpected friend or just don't feel like putting a lot of effort into that comforting lasagne give this a try.

Acai & Hemp Porridge

Another delicious, quick and nutritious breakfast - what more could you ask for in a breakfast?

Avocado, Tomato & Cucumber Open Sandwich

Sometimes the simplest are the tastiest aren't they? For the last few weeks I've been suffering agonizing pain with tendonitis. I kept putting off going to the physio, convincing myself that the pain would go soon. Low and behold 2 weeks later I had to give in and head off on my merry way. Physio Extra team are a great bunch and thankfully seem to always get any extreme pain that sometimes befall me sorted.

Pear, Parsley & Tomato Salad

Very easy throw-together in a few minutes salad. It's very light. fresh and tasty. Ideal for a day that way too hot to be indulging in hot lasagne and soups.

Spiced Pecans, Almond, & Pumpkin Seeds

Toasted nuts & seeds: a simple but tasty snack when the hunger pangs attack!

For a while now I've been pre-soaking my nuts and either dehydrating or cooking them straight. I find them much easier to digest. Below is one of the recipes I love using soaked nuts in.

Raw Cacao Truffles sweetened with apple juice

These are based on a old recipe I'd forgotten to put up on the blog. There was 150g maple syrup in those bad boys about 2 years ago. OMG I couldn't bring myself to put them up. Though on second thoughts I just might. Back then thanks to food intolerances I had a massive sugar craving. These days my sweet tooth is more sedate. I found once my diet/lifestyle turned completly plant-based the sugar cravings reduced significantly of their own accord.
