Another great finger-food recipe which is great for breakfast, as a quick snack in the day or as a light main served with guacamole (mashed avocado) and a side salad. You can pre-make them and have them ready in the fridge to snack on over a day or two. You can change...

This is a great pancake recipe which is flour free, refined sugar free (it's naturally sweetened with the bananas) and high in quality protein to support blood sugar levels. It's a great breakfast for kids as well as adults weaning off the classic western pancakes full...

This soup was a recipe that I was experimenting with for a client who is on a FODMAPs diet but can still eat a small amount of Broccoli. It's a beautiful and light soup and can be adjusted in ingredients as needed.

So this is a funny recipe inspired by Pete Evans 'Meatza' recipe which is like a blend between a hamburger and a pizza. Because the pizza base is made of meat you essentially have a low carb version of pizza and it is of course grain free. 


  • 4-500 g mince...

This is a rice-free 'sushi' recipe and was a spontaneous invention that I found out apparently is actually served at some restaurants too! 

You will need to barbecue or fry fresh salmon fillets till the skin is crispy. Then you carefully remove the skin by peeling it of...

Broccoli Mince Cooked. This is a super simple and quick to make recipe that is far easier to digest than raw broccoli mince, hence far more tummy friendly for most people.


You just need 2 broccoli heads, olive oil and...yes I did it again: I used the Vitalit...

This is one of my favourite winter warmers, so for those of you in the southern hemisphere mark this off for your colder months to come, and for those of you in the northern hemisphere, enjoy now! I am a happy owner of a thermomix (TM) so I cook this soup in my TM, but...
