Recently (a few months ago) I began using bentonite clay in my oral hygiene routine by making my own bentonite clay toothpaste – or to be more precise, tooth powder – and I’m a convert even though for 15 years I’d been using what I considered to be the best toothpaste ever!
This super-quick custard recipe is not only really fast and easy to make, but it’s dairy free, gluten free, egg free and a fairly healthy alternative to traditional custards. This light and surprisingly delicate custard contains some strange ingredients, not the least of which is avocado and I know what you’re thinking… But trust me. It’s good!
If you want to make sourdough bread you need a sourdough starter. This simple starter is made from kombucha and buckwheat flour and it works perfectly every time for my grain free sourdough bread. You can buy commercial kombucha or make your own.
I’ve been playing around with gluten free sourdough recipes for a while but this grain free sourdough recipe using cassava flour is Paleo friendly and amazing. It’s really good sourdough bread and the recipe is pretty much bullet proof – we’ve never had a failure yet!
This Pineapple-Lemongrass Chia Seed Pudding with Coconut Caramel may be a dessert recipe, but it’s also one of my favourite things to eat for breakfast! Chia seeds are tiny nutritional powerhouses, and they form the base of this tasty pudding recipe which is dairy-free and avoids processed sugar by using honey as a sweetener.
I don’t know if there is such a thing as a healthy soda that’s made commercially, but I think I’ve come up with a great alternative that’s healthy, almost zero calorie, natural, tastes great and can be enjoyed by adults and kids alike.
Lacto-fermented zucchini is the perfect way to use that glut of zucchinis in the summer. Make huge jars and store them for later when zucchinis aren’t so widely available. They not only taste great, but they’re good for you!
