SCD Grain-Free Blinis

Do you ever feel left out at cocktail parties?  All those delicious canapés being passed around and you can’t eat any of them?  Whether they’re breaded, deep-fried or served on a crostini or a cracker, there’s usually a grain element to most hors d’oeuvres.  No need to forego the nibbles anymore!  I have the answer! …

Slow Cooked Lamb Rogan Josh

Curry is a great choice on a grain free diet.  In fact, I already have a recipe on the blog for my Spicy Chicken Curry.  Most authentic curry houses don’t use any thickeners in their sauces.  If they make it fresh, the vegetables and the act of reducing the sauces means there’s no need for…

Superfood, Green Tea, Matcha Smoothie Bowl

Having been gifted some Matcha Green Tea by Kineta I was intrigued to use it in a recipe as I’ve not tried it before.  I’d heard lots about the amazing superfood and anti-oxidant benefits it contains (137 times more anti-oxidants than regular green tea!)  I didn’t want to just make a tea with it so I…

Pride and Providores, Marylebone High St

Today started with a BODYBALANCE class followed by a BODYPUMP class – I was clearly feeling energetic and am now most definitely paying for it!  When we got back from BODYPUMP I made us both a brunch – smashed avocado, bacon and poached eggs on bagels for him, and yoghurt fruit and paleo granola for…
