Both are very nourishing, immune boosting, anti-inflammatory and healing to your digestive system. The eggs make this ...

Recipe // Rainbow Cheese Crisps

I’m a sucker for good quality cheese. I really believe that like many whole foods, cheese is a victim of the food processing industry which has traded the natural ageing process (necessary to produce a food that supports digestion and health) for a ‘faster’ food which has come to cause problems for many. I especially love the crispy bits that result from cheese that has oozed out of a toastie or the crunchy ...

Recipe // Healthy Hot Chocolate

My approach to raising my kids to have a healthy, balanced relationship with food is firmly centred around education, enjoyment and finding the middle ground. When they were little I was very strict, controlling everything that passed their little lips. I just wanted what was best for them (in those early formative years) and to be honest I wouldn’t change a thing. However as they grew older and more autono ...

Recipe // Healthy Loaded Fries

The cooler weather definitely lends itself to craving comfort food. A few weeks ago my kids were requesting ‘hot chips’ for lunch and as it happened, they weren’t the only ones feeling like crunchy spuds! As chips in our house is a side (not a meal) and because I didn’t want to go to too much effort, I thought I’d build on their craving for chips and create a one pan meal of sorts. One of the ways that I ha ...
