DON'T THROW AWAY YOUR VEGETABLE JUICE PULP!
Did you know that the pulp is where all the fibre is?! And it is this vegetable fibre that our Gut Bacteria (microbiome) LOVE to feed on. They break down this fibrous plant matter and turn it into essential nutrients that our body can use and benefit from.
So why not add this pulp to your baking and make a sweet or savoury loaf OR muffins. I love to juice carrots because they are extremely beneficial in helping detox within the liver, and lately I have been juicing a lot more ginger than normal. So with my left over carrot and ginger pulp, I decided to do some Sunday baking and make this Carrot and Ginger Loaf. I love to have it with a spread of ghee or grass-fed butter, or even with homemade fermented coconut or dairy yoghurt Read More
I absolutely love staying with my parents, not only because I get to spend time with them….but also because I get a relied from parenting (!!) and cooking. I am SO lucky because my parents do actually eat the same way that we do, so I never have to worry about what is for dinner, or what Dylan would be fed. I don’t take this for granted as I know how tough some families have it when dealing with other family members and what is given to their kids, let alone the comments and concerns that are voiced as well. So for those who a going through that, at least they will see the outcomes of healing for you, which makes it easier to show that you are on the right track. Often family members will start asking you what you are doing and why you are looking so good, which is very rewarding! This lamb shank recipe is a regular one at Mum’s, and it is so tasty and nourishing! Read More
I have tried many a pizza base in my time (including Pizza Huts thin and crispy way back in the day!!) and I have to say this is literally my favourite. Since jumping on the grain-free bandwagon, I have tried the cauliflower base, the meatza, and I really think pizza isn’t a pizza without a bit of crunch in that base! This recipe is really versatile too, you can just make the base, cook it longer on a lower temp and voila you have crackers! I love the flaxseeds in this recipe, they give a nicer texture then just the nuts alone, but if you are on intro GAPS you can replace the flaxseeds with more nuts and then this recipe can be enjoyed from stage 4 :) Read More
You may have heard me before talking about how densely nutritious egg yolks are, and how I LOVE them for adrenal support. Egg yolks are packed with our fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K, plus other nutrients like calcium, zinc, B12, folate, biotin and choline. This makes yolks not just great for your adrenals (the choline reduces the stress hormone cortisol), but also for brain function, liver health, immune function, skin health…the list goes on! Read More
