Sugar Free Cinnamon Stars (Zimtsterne)

Zimtsterne (Cinnamon Stars), are a favourite gluten and dairy free treat at this time of the year in Germany. Unfortunately, whilst they are delicious they are very high in sugar. As part of the work I do at the Alliance for Natural Health we decided to do an experiment recently to see how the addition of […]

Coconut Pancakes

Super quick, easy to make (only two ingredients) and totally delicious. I serve these with stewed apples (with raisins & cinnamon), some sunflower & pumpkin seeds and topped with coconut cream. These can be served at any time of the day and make just as good a supper as breakfast. They are so quick to […]

Pumpkin ‘Bread’

This year I grew a pumpkin. Admittedly it wasn’t a very big pumpkin, but I was determined to use it to make something nice and this is what I came up with – Pumpkin ‘Bread’. This recipe is gluten free and can be dairy free and egg free (so vegan), I’ve given you options to […]

Chicken Stir Fry

A super easy, chicken stir fry recipe using ingredients from your storecupboard and whatever veggies you have in the fridge. Serve with either egg noddles, rice noodles (gluten free) or rice of choice (gluten free) and a green salad.

Protein ‘Porridge’

If you’re trying to reduce the amount of grains in your diet, this protein breakfast ‘porridge’ is just the thing. Once you’re comfortable with the basic recipe play with the ingredients and make different flavours. The nuts and seeds in this recipe provide plenty of good fats and protein to give you a good start […]

Squash & Harissa Dip

A yummy dip to make the most of all the different squashes and pumpkins that are available at this time of year. The recipe states butternut squash, but you could use any available squash in its place. You could also make this using ground cumin, coriander & chilli for a change. If you’re dairy free […]

Spicy Coconut Sweet Potato Wedges

I had these at a couple of events over the weekend and they are delicious. They work well on their own, with a variety of salads & dips, definitely with avocado and would work equally well as a side with chicken or fish. This recipe uses curry powder, but you could easily substitute this for […]

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 […]
