With Canadian Thanksgiving tomorrow, and American Thanksgiving coming up soon, it’s time to break out all things pumpkin. We have a Canadian living & working with us at the moment so I was looking for something to add to our celebrations….without grains and sugars of course. I tried this recipe this morning and it is […]

Jai’s awesome muffins

I’m always on the lookout for paleo / primal goodies for hubby and grandchildren to pack in lunch boxes. In my looking around yesterday I found these great muffins on the Facebook page of Eat. Sleep. Move.  They’re called Jai’s Awesome Muffins. I wanted to change the name but couldn’t think of one, so left […]

Coco-cinnamon protein shake

A couple of days ago I was at home on my own and looking for a quick lunch. You know, something yummy, filling, and most importantly, with very little effort. I went to the cupboard and picked up a can of coconut milk and looked at it…for inspiration. In only seconds the inspiration came, and […]

Zucchini Muffins

Zucchini muffins

One of my fondest memories of life on the farm is that of the abundant harvest of fresh vegetables we always had in the summer. There was always the problem of what to do with a bucket (10 litre / 2 gallon) of `the vegetable of the day’. Tomatoes were easy and always popular – […]

Chunky Monkey Muffins

Chunky Monkey muffins

In the early stages of our change to paleo / primal eating my hubby wanted `something’ to snack on mid afternoon. the deal was that it didn’t spike his blood sugar levels. He was asking for some of those `healthy’ muffins I used to make…..the ones with `healthy whole wheat’!  I (Judith) don’t know where […]

Paleo / Primal breakfasts for all the family

bacon and eggs

`What do I have for breakfast now that I’m doing this paleo thing?’ Such a common question. For the past fifty years (or even more) we have been conditioned to a breakfast based on grains, if indeed we ate breakfast. Packaged cereals (or rolled oats porridge if you’re doing it the really `healthy’ way), toast, […]

Banana Bread

This is a really nice Banana Bread that is grain free, dairy free, with no added sugar……and totally Paleo. The best part is that it is soooo easy to make and the kids love it. The sweetness in this recipe comes mainly from the ripe banana with the dates and maple syrup adding a little […]

Avocado `parmigiana’

Avocado parmigiana recipe

I was inspired to make these from a web hop and now can’t remember where I saw it (if anyone knows please leave a link in the comments so I can give credit where credit’s due). I’d been to my favourite fruit and veg shop and picked up some mini avocados for a good price. […]

Lunchbox fritattas

Lunchbox frittta recipe

My oldest child (Miss Ames) has an aversion to eggs at the moment in any form but fried. She even sets up the fry pan for me with coconut oil and everything to make it easier for me. I usually do ‘poached’ eggs in the Thermomix for everyone else. So Mum came up with this version […]
