Chicken Tikka Masala (Paleo)

Paleo Chicken Tikka Masala is always a winner, especially now the weather is cooling down. Whilst the flavours are complex and delicious, it’s surprisingly easy to make. It’s also suitable for fussy eaters as it’s dairy and gluten free and jam packed with flavour. You know how curries are always better the next day? Well for this recipe we make it in the slow cooker, so it will taste amazing from day 1.   Curries are one of my favourite dishes, as you might have noticed. Why do I love them so much? They’re always super tasty but pretty easy to make. […]

Kombucha 102: How to bottle and carbonate

So you’ve finished Phase 1 of making Kombucha, and you’ve got a tangy, slighty-sweet tea that tastes ok, but not great. I promised you it was a tasty drink and you now you’re starting to wonder if I’m one of those health nuts who calls foul things nice, just because they’re healthy. Phase 2 of the process is where we make kombucha taste great, bottle it and naturally carbonate it. You’ll soon end up with a delicious fizzy drink that I promise you’ll love! Sometimes called second fermentation, but what I call the Flavour Phase. It is optional (some people do […]


Paleo Swedish Meatballs with Creamy Gravy

Paleo-compliant, Swedish Meatballs in a bed of creamy gravy. My partners turn to shop this week, so what have I got to cook with? Mince, chicken thighs and more mince. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on you taste) he has quite simple tastes when it comes to protein. It’s boneless chicken or mince. Both are great I will admit, but it’s hard to come up with something creative every night using virtually the same ingredients. I’ve been on a mission lately to find paleo mince recipes that don’t involved tomatoes. Last week I got Thai-inspired with Sticky Mince Stir Fry and this […]

How to make Coconut Yoghurt

This is my simple “how to” guide to have you making your very own coconut yoghurt. I’ve got stove top and Thermomix instructions to make things even easier. This recipe’s paleo, which means dairy and grain free. Plus, it’s also vegan. Everyone wins! We know yoghurt is good for us. It’s packed full of live bacteria, the kind that heals our gut and strengthens our immune system. But you want to take dairy out of your diet, then you see the price of coconut yoghurt. Surely I’m not the only one who balks at paying more than $20 for 700g […]


April: What I’m loving right now

My favourite products, places and things each month. This month I’ve got my favourite recipe to share; two make up products including a new foundation I tried and a brilliant illuminator everyone needs; and an essential kitchen gadget you’ll be kicking yourself if you don’t already have one. 1. Raw Snickers Bar Slice You know when you have a sweet craving where you feel it will only be satisfied for something really naught, like a Snickers bar? I had one of those this month, so I made a raw snickers bar slice. It was everything I hoped for and more. […]

Thai Sticky Mince Stir Fry (Paleo)

Mince meat (or ground beef for my American friends) is one of my favourite meats to cook with. It’s just so easy and versatile. I struggle cooking a steak. Medium rare is great, a little over and it risks going dry and if it’s tough, it’s the worst! But mince, you can play with it, mould it, over cook it, and every time it will come out perfect. It’s the foolproof meat! This weeks dish is a continent away from the traditional European-style mince dishes I normally make. With flavours of Thailand, plenty of fresh vegetables and herbs, combined by a […]


Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Salad (Paleo)

There’s rumors around town that a Vietnamese restaurant is about to open up, which gave me a serious craving for the noodle salads I used to devour when I still lived in Sydney. I don’t often get homesick for the city, but whenever good food is mentioned my heart instantly aches! Sydney’s home to such a vibrant multicultural food heaven and the flavour choices are endless. Ahhh take me back! I conquered this craving/homesickness by revisiting my Vietnamese Chicken Salad recipe I posted a few months back and modified it to create a noodle salad. Don’t you just love a recipe that keeps on […]

March: What I’m Loving Right Now

You know how sometimes you get hooked on a product, item of clothing or food and seem to just devour it for ages? This happens to me a fair bit. When I was a teen I was obsessed with Maggi 2 minute noodles. I would eat them as often as I could, and not much else. Oddly my mum thought I was anorexic (she clearly didn’t check the nutrition content) because I would be eating them once or twice a day. Fortunately I gave up that habit after a month or two, and now I’ve moved to far healthier obsessions. These […]


Super Soft, Fudge Brownies (Raw & Paleo)

I am a massive fan of a little sweet treat after dinner and where my boyfriend doesn’t oblige (TMI?), I reach for a piece of chocolate or a raw dessert. It’s a bad habit, but one I’m in no hurry to break.  This soft, fudgy brownie is the perfect ‘little something extra’. It’s nutty, it’s chocolatey, it’s soft and decadent, all while being 100% healthy and super good for you.

Cinnamon & Cacao Crunch for a paleo breakfast

Eating a good breakfast to start the day is a simple concept in theory. I’m sure we’ve all had grand plans of waking up a little earlier to prepare a nourishing breakfast, but when the alarm goes off all you want to do is head snooze and grab something quick a little while later. This is where breakfast cereals and toast have risen to becoming a breakfast staple around the world. Unfortunately, both options are generally completely devoid of any nutritional value and pumped full of sugar. Making your own is a far better option as you know exactly what’s […]
