    Blueberry & Coconut Chia Pudding

    Today I am making Blueberry & Coconut Chia Pudding, using Blueberry Powder from Chayah Foods and Coconut Yoghurt from Woolies.  I have mentioned quite a few times that Chia Pudding is one of my favourite gluten-free snacks and breakfasts, for a few reasons. Just two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 4g of protein and they are also a good source of soluble fibre – which is very soothing to the gut. Chia Seeds also contain iron and Omega 3’s and have a neutral taste, taking on any flavour you add to them, which means that there really isn’t any reason not to eat these versatile little seeds.

    Vegan Chickpea Freezer Fudge

    This is my recipe for a delicious Vegan Chickpea Freezer Fudge, that is not only gluten and dairy-free but also fuss-free, as you pop the mixture straight into a tray to freeze.

This Vegan Chickpea Freezer Fudge is very simple to make – you only need a food processor…

    Make this Gut-Friendly Thai Green Curry

    A few of you have been asking for this recipe since the Bosch Cooking Class I hosted, so here it is-  my Gut-Friendly Thai Green Curry Recipe. The Thai Green Curry paste is made from scratch in a matter of minutes and all you need is a blender or food processor to create the paste. I tend to avoid store boguth sauces and pastes as they are loaded with garlic, onions and preservatives, which are a big no-no if you suffer from IBS. By making the paste from scratch, I avoid this. After the paste is made, you move on to the making the actual curry, which takes less than…

    Rose Gold Valentines Gin Cocktails

    These Rose Gold Valentines Gin Cocktails are the perfectly pretty cocktail to mix up for your lover before you go out on a dinner date, or before dinner at home.  I made these cocktails using 5 ingredients: Strawberry Syrup, Thyme, Lemon Juice, Gin and an Egg White. Egg white might sound gross, but don’t worry, you don’t taste it all, and it gives the drink a nice pillowy smooth taste. The Ingredients in the Rose Gold Gin Cocktails I used strawberry syrup that I purchased from The Redberry Farm in George, but you could also use this version from Woolies. Wixworth Gin was my gin of choice, but really you…

    Today’s recipe is how to make Spiced Poached Pear Oats, a gluten-free deliciously comforting breakfast, using pears, mixed spices, oats, butter and almond milk.   If you know me, you know I love to make pretty breakfasts. I believe that we eat with our eyes, so it is important to always make sure that the food that we are making for our family not only looks delicious but tastes delicious too. Oats have a rep for being bland, mushy and kind of gross, but that’s just because sometimes they are boiled too long, or they just aren’t treated with much love. My Tips for Making Oats Don’t cook your oats in…

The solution – delicious baked doughnuts that are cooked in the oven with just a little bit of coconut oil and no added dairy. It is…
