Hi friends! Welcome to Cocobean, I hope you will feel inspired and love it here!
This blog is all about what I am truly passionate about… healthy food. The food that I love to cook, eat and share with my loved ones. Food that nourishes and impacts the way that we feel. Food that leaves you feeling happy, nurtured, satisfied and ready for life.
Most of the recipes are revolved around a plant-based, whole food way of eating. I try to stay clear from gluten, refined sugar, wheat and red meat. You will find all sorts of recipes from vegan, vegetarian, wholesome, gluten free, nutrient rich foods. I am a big believer in balance so sometimes I will share a delicious fresh fish recipe or perfectly baked chocolate cake. It’s all about the balance, love that you put into it and enjoyment. There’s no labels around here, so we can all be ourselves and enjoy the simple things in life.
Most of all, I want to show you how easy it is to live a healthy lifestyle and to cook healthy nutritious food that is absolutely delicious!
We’ll make delectable desserts, rainbow veggie bowls, raw brownies (you won’t ever want normal brownies after tasting these!!), healthy ice cream using only 2 ingredients, dips and spread.. you name it and we can make it together! I plan to share all of these creations with you.
It’s time to get your glow back and a spring in your step!
More about Beans
After studying to be a teacher at Stellenbosch University, I married the love of my life Grant van Zyl and have never been happier. I started my own baking business, Baked Bean and now am focusing on Cocobean my blog.
I’m a bit of a dreamer and look for the good in everything.
My real name is Jacqueline but no one really knows that. Everyone just calls me Beans as I am full of energy and life and find it difficult to sit still. I love dancing, especially ballet. Healthy food excites me. Chocolate and macarons delight me. Stylish people inspire me. My family and friends mean everything to me.
I love all things creative and beautiful.
A lover of life.
