Naturopath Approved Lemon Vanilla Panna Cotta

Naturopath Approved Lemon Vanilla Panna Cotta

I have many patients who are struggling with food intolerances. When they are reacting to eggs, nuts, dairy and grains, meal ideas can pose a challenge.

My Lemon Vanilla Panna Cotta was created with these patients in mind. Focusing on including good fats from coconut, gut healing gelatin, together with refreshing lemon, and flavoursome accompanying spices, this recipe is a just as nutritious as it is delicious!

This one is perfect for a sustaining brekkie, enjoyed as a snack and presented as a healthy desert (they won’t know any different). The good fats will help to keep your blood sugars stable, the inflammation producing insulin down, and gives you a steady release of energy throughout the day.

Ok, enough waiting! Here it is…

What you’ll need:

400mls coconut cream (I use Global organics)

Zest of 1 lemon

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.

A Healthy Treat To Satisfy Your Sweet Cravings

A Healthy Treat To Satisfy Your Sweet Cravings

One of the most common symptoms that presents to me in Naturopath clinic are the struggle with constant sweet cravings. Although I will always endeavour to find the underlying cause, whether it’s investigating for imbalanced micro biome, testing for hormone imbalances and /or overcoming nutritional deficiencies, it’s helpful to have healthy options to offer in place of that sugar-filled block of chocolate or packet of lollies.

Introducing my Lemon Gummies- perfect for overcoming your choccie cravings by changing that taste in your mouth after meals, providing vitamin C for your immune system and gelatin for supporting your gut health. Plus they’re yummy enough to please even the little people in your home!

LEMON GUMMIES

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...

Choc Orange (or Peppermint) Gummies

These gummies are a perfect snack to satiate hunger between meals AND provide the gut healing nutrients, gelatine. Oh and did I mention these orange (or peppermint) infused treats are also chocolate flavour? Yum!

What you’ll need:
