Sibbie’s grain-free buttery lemon and almond biscuits

Sibbie and I made these yummy biscuits after pre-school this week, and she’s claimed them as her own. They’re grain-free and fructose-free, but chewy and yummy and zesty. These will be a regular after school snack for us, I think. Note: if you or your kids or whoever has the pleasure of munching on these ... Continue reading

Paleo sticky date muffins

I was in the zone the other night. I was cooking up a storm. I’d just poured the home-made marshmallow into a tray to set and was waiting for the grain-free choc-banana cake to cook when I decided to get creative with the stack of organic dates in the fridge. So, I fiddled with my ... Continue reading

How to meditate when you suck at meditating

The benefits of meditation are well documented, but it’s a hard practice to get into for some. There’s an old Zen saying: “You should meditate for 20 minutes a day.

Winter slaw

We’ve been enjoying coleslaw a lot lately. It reminds me of the 80s, but there’s something really delicious about crisp vegetables coated in creamy home-made mayo. The weather is cooling down though and I wanted to try something a bit different that would hit the spot in the colder months. Brussels sprouts make up the bulk ... Continue reading

Home-made Mexican-spiced beef

The first time I did a Whole30, aside from not having dairy, my biggest concern was not being able to have Mexican. Our old favourite store-bought taco seasoning was riddled with sugar and nasties. Not at all Whole30 approved. So I was forced to create my own Whole30 approved seasoning mix. And you know what? ... Continue reading

The ocean washed me clean

“The ocean washed me clean.” Those were my thoughts as I left the kids on the shore with Jon and ventured out into the water on my own. A strange but welcome calm washed over my entire body and I exhaled. Heavily. The anxiety and stress that I normally feel in every cell of my ... Continue reading

Ghee is not just clarified butter + how to make your own ghee

It seems I’ve had a little pet peeve develop without me really noticing. All over the interwebs, I’m seeing clarified butter being referred to as ghee and ghee being referred to as clarified butter, and statements about them being the same thing. I just feel the need to point out… Clarified butter is not ghee ... Continue reading

8 tips to reduce food waste
