Mulled Wine – Refined Sugar Free

At this time of year when there’s a chill in the air you need something warming and what better than a glass of hot, Mulled Wine.  Unfortunately every version I’ve ever seen is full of sugar so if I want it, it’s up to me to make my own!  And luckily this recipe is so…

Chocolate Espresso Pots with TASSIMO My Way Brewer

I’m one of those people who just can’t get going in the morning without a coffee!  I think if it’s possible, Dan is even worse than I am!  We both like our coffee super strong and so when TASSIMO offered to let me try out their new My Way machine I jumped at the chance. …

Socca Flatbreads

Whenever I ask someone on a grainfree diet what the one thing they miss eating most is, the answer is inevitably bread!  I’m no different!  I spend a great deal of time in the kitchen coming up with bread alternatives.  I have Grain Free Sandwich Bread, Foccacia and CornBread recipes on the blog already and…

Bacon Wrapped Dates – Devils on Horseback

Sticky, sweet, salty and crispy, these bacon wrapped dates are a flavour overload!  However, they’re so easy to make and there’s only two ingredients, the bacon and the dates!  This makes them perfect appetisers if you follow the SCD or a Paleo diet.  Along with my Grain Free Blinis or my Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus, they’re…

Dark Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes

With Valentine’s Day coming up I was in the mood to create something decadent…and pink!  These Dark Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes definitely fit the bill.  They’re completely grain, gluten and refined sugar-free so you can indulge without any of the guilt.  Sweetened only with a bit of honey, they’re the perfect treat to have with a…

Best Slow Cooked Bolognese Sauce

Bolognese Sauce (or Bolognaise as the English call it) is that classic Italian dish that everyone seems to have a different recipe for.  Below is mine which I’ve perfected over many years and many attempts.  This is the way I prefer to cook and eat it.  I like to make Slow Cooked Bolognese Sauce as it…

Vegan Lentil Shepherds Pie

Happy Veganuary everyone!!  In the spirit of all things Vegan, my friends and I decided to do an entirely Vegan Feast this January.  If you know my friends you’ll know that this was no mean feat!  Dedicated carnivores all of them (I was vegetarian for 16 years and I was the freak of the group!) …

Healthy Peanut Butter Fudge – Refined Sugar-Free

This weekend was my dad’s birthday and I wanted to make him something delicious as a special little homemade present.  Last time I made him some of my healthy Salted Nut Brittle but I wanted to do something different this time.  He has a very sweet tooth, but he gave up chocolate (and anything with…

Roasted Red Pepper Houmous (Roasted Capsicum Hummus)

As my Haricot Bean Houmous (Navy Bean Hummus) turned out so well, I decided to have another go at it but experiment with the flavours.  I love Roasted Red Pepper Houmous so I decided to re-create that version using fresh ingredients instead of a store-bought version full of preservatives and fillers. The basic recipe is…

Banana Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins

These muffins do not have any added sugar!  They’re just sweetened naturally with the bananas. The secret with this is using really ripe bananas.  They’re so naturally sweet at the point when they’re covered in brown spots that you really don’t need any additional sugar which make them a perfect way to start your day. …

Grain Free Bread with Olives & Rosemary

My Grain Free Bread is just the best thing since…sliced bread.  It has such a delicious nutty flavour and makes the perfect sandwich bread.  It’s great for toasting and is so rich that you only need a really thin slice.  Recently though I’ve been thinking about ways to change it up a little bit.  I…

White Wine Sangria – Refined Sugar-Free

Sometimes, when you’re on holiday a glass of wine just wont cut it.  You want a cocktail!  Something thirst quenching and refreshing and preferably pretty looking!  But all of them have some kind of liqueur in them and due to the medical diet that I follow, I can’t have refined sugar.  You can feel a…
