Turmeric Porridge

I have been making & eating this porridge for a long time and been thought very weird even by Nutritional colleagues, until recently that is! We now know how amazingly good Turmeric is for us and this is just one easy way to include Turmeric in your diet. You have to enjoy the flavour of Turmeric to […]

Mango Salsa

The perfect accompaniment for the Coconut Chicken. This Mango Salsa will really add to the freshness of the dish and give it a bit of a chilli kick, I would also add a small clove of garlic. This recipe can be tweaked to your taste very easily. This would also go well with fish or […]

Buckwheat Banana Bread

A delicious gluten, dairy & egg free sweet treat. This is very easy to make, uses up the uneaten ripe bananas at the end of the week and can be enjoyed by everyone. Spread with a little butter (if you eat dairy) or some almond butter (if you’re dairy free). The addition of the walnuts […]

Coconut Chicken

A quick easy way to cook chicken and one that should go down well with the kids as well as the grown ups. This would go well with the Mango Salsa, sliced avocado and your choice of salad or green beans with some new potatoes on the side buttered (if you eat dairy) or dressed […]

Black Bean Brownies

This is one of my favourite sweet treat recipes. It’s moist, light (crumbly) & totally delicious. The best bit is that if you don’t tell anyone that there is no flour or butter in the brownies they don’t know and they will certainly never guess it’s made with beans!! So not only is it dairy […]

Scones

I love a scone and it’s one of the things I miss about following a gluten & dairy free diet. So, I decided that I would have a go at making some myself and this is what I’ve come up with. These are dairy free, gluten free, low sugar scones (suitable for vegans) that are also high […]

Sausage & Veg Roast

This is an easy to make family meal (although any leftovers can be frozen for another day if there’s less of you), gives you loads of veg in one meal (I tend to serve with a green salad on the side or a green veg such as broccoli – you can’t have too much broccoli!). […]

You want something to eat. You don’t want a meal, but do need a sustaining snack. You’re trying to avoid/reduce sugar – what can you have?  Certainly an interesting challenge.  Here are few ideas of no/low sugar snacks that you can either prepare in advance or make quickly & easily when you need a boost. […]

Veggie Burger & Tahini Slaw

I wanted a  veggie burger that didn’t use breadcrumbs, included sweet potato and is simple to make.  So here it is Bean & Sweet Potato burger.  These are quite soft so don’t work well in a bun (however you could firm up the mixture with some buckwheat flour (if you are gluten free) or plain flour […]
