Perfect Peppermint Slice

Perfect Peppermint Slice
I love Peppermint Slice so tasty - I think this will be a regular in my house.

This recipe is made with Coconut Oil and therefore has loads of fantastic health benefits, plus has no refined sugar in it. It will melt if left out of the fridge though so make sure you eat it up quick - but I'm sire that won't be a problem!

Reduce sugar cravings and emotional eating!

"Am I hungry?"

Reduce sugar cravings and emotional eating!

It's biologically, we are designed to seek out sugar. Before the advent of processed foods, sugars only came in the forms of fruit and vegetables. Going out for a walk and finding a fruit tree was a true treat, and we would sit and devour as much as we could! Particularly in preparation for winter.

Now - sugar is everywhere. It's in your cereals, breads, cakes, lollies, sauces, yogurts, chocolate, premade meals, canned goods and pretty much everything else in packets. You get a little and your brain just wants more and more!!! So, how can we reduce those cravings?

Savoury Muffins

Free from gluten, dairy, refined sugars plus paleo friendly

Savoury Muffins
I am dairy free and I miss a good tasty savoury muffin! Yumm cheese and bacon muffins.....

Here is my variation of a savoury muffin that has no dairy - of course, if cheese doesn't bother you then adding some cheese on top is a great idea.

Sweet Potato Hashbrowns

Aka Kumara Cakes

Sweet Potato Hashbrowns
Sweet potato is a staple in our house, we use it as a bread substitute and the kids love it with everything!

One of our favourite is "Kumara Cakes", sweet potato is called Kumara in New Zealand and Cakes, well simply to encourage a 3 year old to eat them. You can uses the kumara cakes in many ways - burger 'bun', eggs benedict, eggs on 'toast', 'cracker' with pate or own its own. Yummy! You can also add cheese if you include this in your diet.

Tracy and Stephen's Story

Tracy and Stephen's Story

“It has been fantastic, loved it, and it was easy. 

Both Stephen and I have really enjoyed it, it has challenged our thinking about traditional food guidelines and recommendations, helped us become more organised and I feel that my weight loss goals are achievable, it just doesn’t seem that daunting or overwhelming now."

Vanilla Berry Muffins

Gluten, dairy and refined sugar free, Paleo friendly

Vanilla Berry Muffins

I'm always on the hunt for an easy, cost effective muffin that all kids will like - even those who are used to 'normal' store purchased muffins. This recipe is a great transition muffin recipe for when you are removing refined sugars from your diet. It has loads of good fats to keep your kids full plus just enough sweetness so they won't know it's good for them!
