Choc Jelly Slice

I  

Are you a choccie fan? Ok, silly question. Are you trying to support your gut health? Yeah? Now we're talking.

This recipe will keep you fuller for longer, satisfy your sweet tooth (but can be adapted to have minimal sweetener) and provides gut health goodies- prebiotics for feeding your good gut bugs plus gelatine for healing your gut. Gelatine also promotes healthy hair, skin and nails. Yep, kinda ticks all my Mumma healthy snack boxes. 

If you're following my Thriving Bubba food intro guidelines, this one will be appropriate for bubs (best using carob as a cacao replacement and without the use of essential oils), around 15 months of age. Learn more about foods for baby here.

My Grain & Nut Free Brownies Recipe

My Grain & Nut Free Brownies Recipe

I hear you! It can be tough to please all the members of your household when there are intolerances, allergies and nut free school requests. Now you can still give everyone a choccie fix without the refined sugar, grains (therefore gluten), dairy and nuts. This recipe ticks all the boxes and can be adapted further to create a lower fructose option.

Along with the refreshing essential oil aroma and taste, there is one secret ‘filler’ ingredient that not even my sister could detect (who is very well versed with grain free cooking). Nope, it not nut meal, seed meal, tapioca or sweet potato… it’s black beans! Sounds a bit strange, but trust me, they create a moist brownie that will please everyone’s chocolate cravings (yep even a pregnant woman ). If you missed me talking about my pregnancy choccie craving, you can read more about my second tri experience over here.

Gut Healing Creamy Hot Chocolate

Creamy Hot Chocolate

Creamy Hot Chocolate… sounds naughty right? Not this recipe!

Firstly, this one is made using quality cacao powder (as oppose to refined and sugar filled chocolate powder) and it passes on the usual additions of pasteurised milk and sugar.

What you will find is gut healing gelatine as the ‘creaming agent’, blood sugar stabalising ghee (or butter) and energy enhancing Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oil. When you add MCT oil (along with other good fats) into your diet, your body uses them (ketones) as a source of energy for the brain, which can be easily drawn upon and lasts for much longer than fast burning glucose energy sources.

If you have a sweet tooth, you have the option of adding raw honey or your fav natural sweetener and enhancing the flavour sensation with a drop of high quality essential oils.

Get all of this in my Creamy Hot Chocolate recipe & enjoy the increased energy and brain power, stronger immune and...

5 Tips For A Healthy Easter

5 Tips For A Healthy Easter

Easter is just around the corner! Before you assume your long weekend will be filled with sugary binges and consequently an addition to your waistline, try a few of my tips below. I challenge you to make it a healthy and happy one.

1. START YOUR DAY LIGHTLY:

If you are having a large Easter lunch or dinner, then there is no need to stuff yourself silly from when you first wake up. Some healthy options include a fresh vegetable juice or smoothie.

If you are still hungry 20 minutes later, try some protein rich eggs, nuts or seeds.

2. HELP OUT YOUR DIGESTION:

It is hard work breaking down large amounts and varieties of food over the day. Give your stomach a kick start, by starting each meal with juice ½ lemon, or 2 tsp apple cider vinegar, in warm water.

3. WORK IT OFF:

Keep active through the day, to help burn off any larger food portions consumed. Hiking, swimming, surfing, fishing, skiing and other water sports as...
