Mint Choc Chip Green Smoothie

This week I noticed that mymint plant is fully sprouting an abundance of green leaves again, having gone dormant for the duration of winter. Oh, to be a mint plant!

Guest Post on The Paleo Mom!! Chocolate Chestnut Chia Cake -

Whoop Whoop - could I BE any more excited?? Thrilled, ecstatic, over the moon and incredibly thankful to The Paleo Mom for featuring my first ever guest post. A sneak peek..

Check out the full post over on: - guest post by imperfectly-paleo: Chestnut chocolate chia cake


Sweet Potato Coconut Chia Breakfast Pudding

I'll admit this is not the sweetest of 'puddings' but it works well to start the day without a surge in insulin. I find the sweet potato is naturally sweet enough, especially when eaten with some fruit toppings, but there is always the option to add maple syrup or honey to taste. A small bowlful is also great as pre-workout energy fuel.

Matcha Coconut Chia Green Breakfast Pudding

I love the taste of matcha - from its pure unadulterated simple hot cup of calming green tea form to its less innocent guise in mochi or ice cream.

Coconut Chilli Chicken and Greens

This weekend I side-stepped the temptation to order in a takeout by whipping up this one pan speedy supper. Admittedly it still requires washing up the one pan but at least it doesn't result in the ingestion of unwanted MSG and other nasties which inevitably lead to a whole host of unpleasant gut and health issues.

Chocolate Orange Bites

These are inspired by a hybrid of Terry's Chocolate Orange and Nakd Cocoa Orange bars. Need I say more?

Ten Things I Miss When on Holiday

There are plenty of things I DON'T miss about home when on holiday eg laundry, washing up, cleaning, ironing - need I go on? But I was surprised to learn what I DO miss..

Walnut and Apple Cookie Cake Bites

This is part soft cookie, part cake - couldn't decide which side of the fence it fell so have called it a Cookie Cake!
They have a crunchy top reminiscent of a cookie when fresh from the oven but the inside is densely cake-like.

Super Simple Unsweetened Apple Sauce

Our family has had a month of passing the virus baton!
Along with half the mums of the children in my 7 year old's class, I was struck down by some undiagnosed illness

Prawn and Coconut Cauliflower Rice

Such a simple one pan meal that takes less than 15 minutes to cook and can be eaten out of a bowl for extra comfort factor! Comfort food doesn't get more comforting than this - like a huge hug in a bowl!

Chicken and Fennel Salad with Citrus Tahini Dressing

Keeping it super simple #kiss for summer mealtimes. All the more time to enjoy the sun.

The Trials and Tribulations of Travelling Paleo #notperfectlypaleo #imperfectlypaleo

I was deluded in believing (read, wanting to believe) that I was holding up my Paleo principles while away for a week on a family holiday.
