Raw lamingtons

Lamingtons are almost an Australian institution and have long been associated with Australia Day. They come in all shapes and sizes from traditional slab cakes covered in chocolate and coconut to a lamington smoothie!?!

I gave this recipe “The Healthy Spin” and came up with something slightly alternative (truly – they are a far […]

Strawberry chia jam

Strawberry season signifies summer for me. The beautiful rich red colour, sweet smell and amazing flavour of a ripe berry makes me want to use them in as many ways as possible. Making jam is not only a great way to preserve them to use later but also a fabulous way to use up […]

Mango, ginger and lime chia pudding

 

Summer is here! It seems that we’ve had lots of warm weather all over Australia recently. I love this time of year because of the wonderful produce that is available to us all. One of those special treats for me is mango. I don’t eat a lot of them because of the sugar […]

(paleo) Lemon curd

I have always said “when life gives you lemons……..make something you love to eat”. 🙂

There are many things that I love to make with lemons and one of my absolute favourites is lemon curd. My pre-healthy life saw me make this recipe which (at the time) I absolutely loved. For me it is […]

(paleo) No-bake bars

I originally wanted to make something with an Anzac spin on it. I thought of some kind of “Anzac Bar” so that they could be easily consumed with your favourite brew after attending a dawn service. As I was making them I thought “don’t mess with the original”. Sometimes […]

(paleo) Super simple chocolate

Chocolate has always been one of my favourite things. However, over the years my tastes have changed slightly and more recently I have turned to the “dark side”, preferring nothing less than 70% cacao. That being said, I developed this recipe with others in mind also.

I have […]

(paleo/LCHF) Spiced lamb burgers

Lamb has always been one of my favourite sources of protein. In fact it was the first meat I ate when I broke out of my 15 years of vegetarianism!

For as long as I can remember it ahs almost been traditional to have some form of lamb as part of Australia day celebrations. […]

(paleo/LCHF) Cauliflower buns/rolls

I’ve never been a big bread eater. I remember as a child the only thing I really liked was plain white bread with vegemite and grated cheese and even that was only when I was quite young. As I grew older and my palate developed it wasn’t something I gravitated […]

(paleo) Cranberry and pistachio shortbread

Shortbread is one of the treats I enjoy and following a paleo lifestyle doesn’t mean I miss out. I love the rich buttery taste and the slightly crumbly texture that almost melted in your mouth yet still had a little crunch. That is exactly what I wanted from this recipe and I […]

(Healthy) Caramelised onion jam

The weather has finally warmed up a little in Perth. For me, that means my eating habits change. I want to eat lighter, brighter food. So it is almost time to say goodbye to my curries and wintery stews and hello to more salads, shakes and ice creams. It also means the opportunity for […]
