Dried Figs with Tahini & Cacao Nibs

For a perfectly healthy mid-afternoon treat, try combining Dried Figs with Tahini and Cacao Nibs – it’s the best! The fig is moist and oh so sweet, while the tahini is smooth and nutty and the cacao nibs, crunchy on top and full of buzz.

Banana and Coconut Pikelets

I made these delightful little Banana & Coconut Pikelets to take to a playgroup date this morning and my Little Mr R absolutely devoured them. I first got the idea after he was positively impressed with my last batch of Paleo Hot Cakes. The Hot Cakes contain raw cacao, which I personally think is a little too strong for little […]

Cacao Nut Butter with Cinnamon & Vanilla

I made this delightfully rich, yet not at all sweet Cacao Nut Butter after lunch today to have with a few strawberries for afternoon tea. It was the first time I made a nut butter in my new Vitamix and it turned out a treat so I’ve decided to share my recipe which is 100% […]

Paleo Zucchini Fritters

I made these tasty high protein Paleo Zucchini Fritters for breakfast this morning and they turned out very, very well. They really only have two key ingredients (zucchini and egg), with the optional, but worthy addition of fresh herbs – I chose mint, but parsley or basil or a combination would also do nicely…. as […]

It’s heaven and worth relaxing in, even for just five minutes…. and so why not do that with a healthy Paleo Strawberry Sorbet […]

Paleo Banana Omelette with Berries

I made this Paleo Banana Omelette with Berries the other day and it was just heavenly. It tasted like nothing I’d ever experienced and maybe that’s because it was my first ‘sweet’ omelette. It was just so good and it would be criminal not to share the recipe, which by the way, was so incredibly simple. […]

Why We’re doing it & Why you should do the Whole30 My husband and I are doing the Whole30 [the healthiest, most natural Paleo diet, for 30 days – it’s about ‘what’ we eat, not ‘how much’]. We decided last weekend. The timing was perfect and not even planned, for our first day was Monday, the 1st of September, […]
