Mango & Blueberry Quinoa Porridge

Uncategorized Feb 05, 2021
Here's yummy breakkie idea with a porridge twist! This porridge uses quinoa instead of oats (which can be better tolerated for some people).
 
It's gluten-free and dairy-free, and also low-histamine and adrenal diet friendly.
 
Serves 4
INGREDIENTS
  • 300ml coconut milk
  • 115g quinoa, rinsed well
  • 350g mango flesh, roughly chopped
  • 1/8 tsp stevia (can add more, to taste)
  • 4cm fresh ginger, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 100g blueberries
  • 4 tbsp toasted dried coconut shavings
 
INSTRUCTIONS
  • Put the coconut milk and quinoa in a small saucepan and bring to the boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 10-15min, or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat and set aside for 7min to allow the grains to swell. Fluff up with a fork and tip into a bowl and leave to cool.
  • Meanwhile, put the mango (leave some cubes aside to add to top of porridge, if you like), stevia, and lime juice in a food processor. Squeeze the ginger...

Top 5 Mistakes to Avoid With Bloating

Uncategorized Jan 26, 2021
 
Bloating is a big sign that your body just isn't coping with all it has to do. It's incredibly common among busy women, who are always on the go!
Here are the TOP 5 MISTAKES I see people doing again and again when it comes to trying to 'self-treat' bloating:
 
1. Eating a restrictive low-fodmap diet. This is a very common diet used to reduce symptoms of bloating, that most people find when they Dr Google "how to get rid of the bloat". It is also often recommended by gastroenterologists or dieticians, when medical scopes and blood tests come back as "fine." While I have nothing against using such a diet in healing protocols, I DO have a problem when people go on restrictive diets long-term to reduce gut symptoms, without understanding or treating WHY they are bloating in the first place when they eat healthy foods like onion or apples. A healthy body SHOULD be able to eat healthy foods.
 
2. Taking random gut supplements. Look, I think it's great you're trying out...

Seedy Grain-Free Bread

Uncategorized Jan 21, 2021
Looking for a yummy, gluten-free bread to nibble on...that doesn't taste like cardboard, lol? This is a bit nice! It's also grain-free, so a good choice if you're sensitive or needing to limit your grain intake at the moment.
 
By the way...if your bread turns GREEN after a day or two - do not fear, it is not mould! This is just a normal reaction that happens with the ground up sunflower seeds. If the colour puts you off the bread, you might want to sub sunflower seeds for a different type of seed.
 
INGREDIENTS
  • 1½ cup almond meal
  • 6 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 6 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1/3 cup almonds

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Mix the pumpkin, sunflower, flax and chia seeds in a bowl, set aside 3 tablespoons.

Matchstick Christmas Salad

Uncategorized Dec 10, 2020

 

My number #1 tip for staying true to the foods my body loves, even during Christmas...Make delicious food and take it to parties to share! I used to fail miserably with eating healthy during Christmas. You know what I mean - you turn up to Christmas Do's bombarded with all sorts of delicious naughtiness. It wasn't until I started making my own delicious (and nutritious!) meals and treats, and taking them along to share, that I was able to stay true to who I am, and to gift my body with nourishing foods. I may still 'indulge' at the Do's (lol), but I rarely feel horrid afterwards.

Here's a pretty salad I took to a Christmas Party last week. The maple toffee walnuts give it a special, tasty crunch.

 

INGREDIENTS

SALAD
  • 1 zucchini
  • 2 medium beetroots
  • 1 green apple
  • 2 carrots
  • Goji berries, large handful
  • chopped walnuts, large handful (or more!)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

DRESSING

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 small garlic clove,...
