It needs to be a good recipe to go on my blog if I didn’t make it up. These are, in a word, insane. They are SO easy, SO delicious, you could easily fool your non-paleo friends into thinking they are sooo bad for you, but they aren’t. YUM. (more…)
So amongst my family and good friends I have become somewhat known for my caramel slice – not raw, not paleo, not remotely healthy – and yes, I must very immodestly admit, it is sooo good. However, I haven’t made it for over a year (which was around the last time I had a serious non-paleo treat!) and over the weekend felt the need to recreate a paleo version. HOWEVER I’m not coping very well with nuts at the moment and I don’t like all my paleo treats to be nut-intense – which they almost always are, especially raw treats. SO this one is nut-free, grain-free, dairy-free, sugar-free and just plain delicious!! Read on and MAKE this one. Enjoy! (more…)
I have been very back and forth with my diet recently. I did autoimmune for a full month, experienced a little emotional trauma over some extended family things (who hasn’t?) and the next day I was back onto my coffee and paleo treats which I love!! I’ve also been so obsessed with eggs for a while – well, if I’m honest, my whole life – and after reintroducing them have found that they are totally fine. What my body doesn’t seem to be coping with well at the moment is nuts, and I was so craving a delicious treat, but didn’t want any accompanying side effects other than satisfaction and satiation.
Also, so many paleo treats have masses of either honey, maple syrup, or agave… And this slice (which serves many) has a couple of tablespoons in the entire thing. So yes – it is a treat, but not one to feel guilty about. Read on for the recipe… (more…)
I’m so sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted – I’ve been doing autoimmune which means NO SWEET TREATS which I have not liked… and have deviated from slightly today with these little morsels!! However I’m sort of doing a half baked attempt at autoimmune – anyway I’ll save that for the next post.
In the meantime, I just had to put up a recipe because it’s been so long!! Actually I’ve been over at www.thewebsitestore.net getting my new business up and happening – if you need a website drop me a line! And I’ve been (happily) inundated, to the detriment of this blog. Oh dear.
BUT these White Cacao and Lavender Fudge Pieces will make up for it. I promise. (more…)
I used to be what Mark Sisson calls a “chronic cardio” person. Run, cycle, run, and run some more. It’s so easy to think that the best thing for us physically (other than healthy eating of course) is to get super fit cardio-wise. And supposedly, the way to do that is with hours of training. If you are one of the few people who enjoy this (and it does actually get addictive), that is all well and good, until you become injured. And then what? (more…)
Apologies for the delay between posts – I’ve been so busy, in a good way. Sometimes we are just thrown everything left right and centre but once the rush and panic passes, we emerge just that little bit stronger. Such a cliché – sorry about that. By the way, if anyone would like a website for their small business – this is my new small business, so head on over to www.summitwebsites.com.au and contact me from there!… Verry reasonable pricing I must say!!… Anyway – the other night we had people over for dinner, and I didn’t want to make a dessert that was to “paleo” – while, of course, being paleo. I also had a minor craving for chocolate mousse, and this is the result of those two factors…
We have quite a big slow cooker that I bought from a beautiful friend second hand. It’s the best when you’re busy at night time (I had yoga, then had to go and pick up the gorgeous sixteen year old who is living with us from a town 45 minutes away – and we weren’t back until 9). Both he and my husband were going to be starving by this time of night but I was away from the house for the few hours – and I was determined to have something that would swiftly fill them up (hence the recipe title!!). Once this is in the slow cooker, you can just walk away and forget it. Plus – I did something slightly weird with this recipe that was also highly practical – and surprisingly, totally worked!! Keep reading to find out what it was… (more…)
