Spicy Autumn Squash Soup

There's something about autumn being synonomous with soup. Salads are sometimes not what the body craves when the leaves are cascading from the trees and the daylight hours are rapidly diminishing.

This vibrant soup is enough to brighten the darkest of days and the spicy ginger and punchy turmeric and cayenne awaken the senses when it can be tempting to lie like a sloth lamenting the loss of summer!

Fig and Blueberry Grain-Free Porridge (N'oatmeal)

With the weather turning colder my regular breakfast salad is starting to feel a little amiss. More than the odd morning have I caught myself sneaking covetous glances and salivating slightly at the steaming bowl of porridge (oatmeal) across the breakfast table being enjoyed by my gluten tolerant other half.

Guest Post on Paleo Parents: Kale and Lime Cupcakes with Whipped Coconut Cream

Kale. Coconut. Cake. These are definitely a few of my favourite things!

When the lovely people at Paleo Parents agreed for me to feature a guest post I was over the moon with excitement. Then I was struck with the dilemma of choosing just ONE recipe!
After much to-ing and fro-ing I settled on the one that encompasses how I feel about the food I choose to cook and eat every day: healthful, tasty, pretty and unconventional.Thank you again to Paleo Parents for featuring my recipe - you can go check it here Guest Post Kale and Lime Cupcakes

Squidgy Sesame Protein Brownies

As much as I love coconut flour and am fiercely loyal to the regular inhabitants of my life, dietary or otherwise, sometimes, out of nowhere comes an itch to venture off-piste just for a brief adventure!

Oil Pulling Review

Got to try it before you mock it right?

This morning officially saw the last of the 250ml jar of coconut oil I opened 31 days ago to begin my oil pulling experiment. I didn't miss a single day. I started out with a miserly teaspoon and gradually worked up to a heaping teaspoon.

Steamed Chinese Cabbage Parcels

Chinese food is often stereotyped as heavy, greasy and seasoned with a hefty dose of MSG. Let me assure you: This is a myth!

Anniversary Chocolate Mousse Tarts

To celebrate our anniversary I wanted to make something special. And obviously I had to make enough for the children!

Looking back at the person I was on my wedding day feels like looking back at a long lost friend - I haven't caught up with her for a while, shared a joke (or a gluten and dairy pizza). Though she's changed a lot, one thing that has remained unwavering is her love of chocolate - albeit these days without the dairy and only a fraction of the sweetness.
