    {DF / GF / Vegan} Reset your Gut before December

    When someone suggests you “go with your gut” — they are more right than you probably realize. That is because your gut is actually considered your second brain and it is changing the way we understand the links between digestion, mood, health and even the way we think. Reset your Gut Our gut is responsible for ensuring that we absorb the nutrients of the food we eat, properly expelling waste and toxins from our body and for helping maintain a strong immune system. While not only critical for these everyday functions, your gut also holds a life force of its own. Food does not just digest from chewing and swallowing;…

    {Vegan, Dairy Free} My Mini Oreo Cheesecake

    Today’s recipe is my Mini Oreo Cheescake that’s Vegan and Dairy Free. When someone says Cheesecake, Cashews don’t usually spring to mind as a core ingredient. However the cashew nut has long been used to create dairy free desserts, because of the fact that when it is soaked and blended it creates a silken kind of cream cheesy texture. Because of my FODMAP diet, I try to avoid cream cheese, so I have been experimenting to get the the consistency of a cheesecake made from cashews correct. The flavour just wasn’t what I wanted and tasted quite bland the first time round and I was getting frustrated having wasted a…

    {GF, DF, Veg} Strawberry Fruit Rolls

    Fruit Rolls remind me of my childhood, when my dad would go to Fruit and Veg City and stock up on the Banana and Guava variants for us. I remember watching Cartoon Network with my brothers and sisters and peeling back the fruit roll, then slowly tearing off piece by piece, trying to make the roll up last as long as possible. As I grew older I started to dislike anythingh guava flavoured, so I thought it might be a good time to figure out how to make a roll up in a different flavour. I watched a few videos online and it seems the idea is simple – all…

    {GF & DF} Berry Bliss Protein Balls

    We are about to head to the Kruger on Tuesday and I am soooo excited to defrost from the freezing Jozi for a few days. The only thing I don’t like about the Kruger is how much snacks I can consume while we are out on game drives. I am a grazer and I eat small meals throughout the day, so this time I have made sure to pack as many healthy snacks as I can – raw nuts, dried fruit, pop chips and these Berry Bliss Protein Balls. They take about 10 – 15 minutes to make and are not only delicious and full of protein, but they are…
