1 & 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen mixed organic berries
2 tsp natural vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Honey or Maple syrup to sweeten (if desired)
Combine almond milk, coconut cream and chia seeds in a bowl. Whisk well and allow to sit for 20-30mins mixing occasionally so chia seeds don't clump together. Then place in the fridge for at least 2 hrs or overnight. Add berries, vanilla, sweetner and a pinch of salt.
I make this in the afternoon if I want to serve as a cold dessert with fresh berries (needs to sit in fridge for at least 2hrs). But mostly I make it at night with frozen berries for breakfast porridge - I add the frozen be...

Mango time - Yay! This is a fantastic gluten free pancake recipe that I created by modifying a Gwyneth Paltrow recipe - apparently it was her dad's famous recipe which will no doubt become my daughters favourite recipe. The original recipe uses more eggs and buttermilk but I find kefir works really well in this recipe and my family doesn't like too many eggs. If you want to learn how to make your own Kefir then you should book for my next cooking school - Raw & Fermented foods Saturday 26th November...
1cup buckwheat flour

40g melted butter, ghee or coconut oil (If I am being lazy I omit this)
1 & 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
ghee, butter or coconut oil for frying
Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Whisk the Kefir, melted butter and eggs together in another bowl. Add t...
Don't forget the humble Omelette - protein, fat and vegetables what more do you need? If I am working from home I often have a vegetable Omelette for Lunch or a lazy dinner - so quick & easy! It never fails to amaze me how different ingredients can make a completely different tasting omelette... so be creative and try using different vegetables, herbs and cheeses or try a dairy free option.
Salt & Pepper
Chopped red capsicum
Chopped red onion
Chopped coriander or other herbs
Chopped snow peas
Ash Goat cheese or other cheese
Heat a small pan with some butter, whisk together eggs with salt & pepper then pour into pan, add chopped vegetables, cheese & coriander. Cook bottom and then fold to melt cheese and further cook vegetables. You can add nut milk or dairy milk to the eggs whilst beating but I find the Omelette holds together nicely without extra liquid. Serve with a green salad.
