    How to Make Gluten-Free Cocoa Pops

    Have you ever wanted to make your own healthy cereal for the week? Today I show you how to make Gluten-Free Cocoa Pops, using puffed rice, cocoa and a little bit of sweetness.  When my siblings and I were little, we would very rarely be allowed to eat sugary cereals. I even remember feeling guilt at nursery school because my teacher allowed me to make a Fruit Loop necklace and gasp – EAT IT TOO! When we were given sugary cereals like Strawberry Pops, Cocoa Pops and Fruit Loops, my parents would buy those small little boxes for us to ensure we didn’t overindulge. My sister and I would hoard…

    Make a Dairy-Free Creamy Coleslaw

    Braai Day is around the corner, and you guys requested yummy healthy salads, so here’s my recipe to make a Dairy-Free Creamy Coleslaw. This creamy dairy-free coleslaw is a classic tasting South African coleslaw, made with dairy-free mayonnaise. It is gluten-free, egg-free and dairy-free too, so everyone can enjoy this creamy summer salad. What is it about coleslaw that makes a plate of food so tasty? When I was a kid, whenever we got KFC as a family, I would always eat a tub of coleslaw by myself. For me, it was better than the fried chicken! The crunchy cabbage, sweet carrots and tangy mayo make me salivate! I feel…

    My Holy Grail Skincare Products for Sensitive Skin

    If you have very sensitive skin like me, then you may want to read this blog post which features my Holy Grail Skincare Products for Sensitive Skin.  Disclaimer, this is not a sponsored post! Hello, my name is Cat and I have what dermatologists like to call hypersensitive skin. My family have another pet name for me, rash ball. There is even a running joke in my family – if something says Dermatologically Approved, the REAL test is if it doesn’t give Cat a rash. The Skincare Culprits There is a long list of things that have made me break out into hives or rashes over the years (contact dermatitis),…

    Ina Paarman’s Lemon Meringue made Gluten-Free

    Today we are baking a Gluten-Free version of Ina Paarman’s Lemon Meringue. Her easy to bake Lemon Meringue Pie mix contains the lemon curd and castor sugar to make a pie, but not the crust, so I decided to replace the Tennis Biscuits she suggests with Gluten-Free Digestive biscuits. A few weekends back, I spent hours trying to master a very complicated Lemon Meringue recipe. While I was happy with the results (it tasted delicious), it did not make it to the blog because I knew the process was too complicated for a blog that claims to post easy, simple recipes. Ina Paarman’s Lemon Meringue When I was looking through…

    A Review of O Nutricia Collagen

    A review of O Nutricia Collagen, which contains Proline and Glycine, that can help with IBS by repairing damaged cells in the intestinal wall.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, and it’s a required building block for healthy nails, hair, skin,…

    This Quinoa Salad with Honey & Mustard Roasted Vegetables is a perfect meatless main dish or side dish. It is loaded with veggies that have been roasted in Ina Paarman’s Honey & Mustard Coat and Cook Sauce and is served over a bed of warm quinoa.

Roasting the Veggies Roasted vegetables are good any time of the year, but I think they are especially delicious during colder winter months. Between the gorgeous, slightly browned veggies, the…

    How to make Chocolate Milo Cookies

    A delicious and easy recipe on how to make Chocolate Milo Cookies that are flourless, crunchy, delicious and the best part – you don’t need to chill the cookie dough!  This weekend Shaun and I created a new recipe for the blog together – these Flourless Chocolate Milo Cookies.

I believe in everything in moderation, and I also try to substitute flours whenever I can for gluten-free versions, and that’s exactly what I did in this recipe for…

    Honey & Soy Noodle Bowl with Ina Paarman’s

    An easy lunchtime recipe for a Honey and Soy Tofu Noodle Bowl, using the Ina Paarman Honey & Soy Coat & Cook Sauce. I have always had a fondness for Asian-inspired dishes, so when Ina Paarman asked me which products I would like to create recipes with; my first option was their Honey and Soy sauce. Honey and Soy is a classic stir-fry and dipping sauce in Asian recipes but is also used to create sticky chicken wings or ribs. I decided to do a vegetarian dish because as I am sure you know by now, I try to eat more plant-based meals and love coming up with vegan and…
