Gluten-free flax and almond bread

I’ve written a couple of bread recipes – I’m no specialist and it doesn’t come that easy – and until now the courgette and almond loaf from my book was our go-to gluten-free option, cramming in as it does such a good amount of greens, protein, fats and fibre. I […]

Spiced tahini and cardamom porridge with sautéed banana

In our little cabina in Costa Rica, from where we have just returned to the depths of winter and are now tucked up in our little woodland home, we cooked simply with organic produce from the local shop. As is always the way, abundant sunshine produces such flavoursome and nutritionally […]

Turmeric, lemon and ginger chia pots

It has been a while since I shared in this online space. There are many reasons but one primary: motherhood – and the immense limitations it puts on one’s spare time; added to that, a (sleep-deprived) struggle for daily structure and a deep and ongoing dive within as this journey […]

Feta and roast vegetable frittata muffins

In nutrition clinic, I so often see that, for whatever reason, many of us aren’t eating enough protein. Protein provides the building blocks for all our bodily systems and it is so important for optimal vitality and wellness. Through recent diet fads and a much-needed move away from constant meat […]

Blueberry and quinoa muffins 

This wholefood gluten-free blueberry muffin recipe from my book is full of surprise ingredients including quinoa, chia, oat, apple puree and banana. They are moist, sturdy and delicious, full of protein-building amino acids, naturally sweet and balanced with blood sugar-regulating cinnamon, offering so much more than your average bakery treat; I love […]

Gluten-free courgette bread

Image: Rahel Weiss, The Naturalista – nourishing recipes to live well This easy and indispensable gluten-free courgette bread is one of the most popular and widely loved recipes from from my book. I wrote it under Everyday Essentials, and since my blog was conceived with the idea of creating exactly that, it seems time I […]

Creamy quinoa porridge with cinnamon and berries

The first time I cooked quinoa porridge a few years ago, Ben gave a pretty doubtful response. For so many of us the ancient protein-packed grain has distinctly savoury connotations and throwing it into the sweet breakfast corner doesn’t always feel natural. However, mixed with a little cinnamon, honey, creamy cashew milk […]

Quick buckwheat crepes

My mother recently stayed at the visionary Vivamayr clinic and returned with an unbelievably simple and quick buckwheat crepe recipe. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to try it and have spent the afternoon knee deep in gluten-free pancakes of all shapes and sizes as I perfect the milk […]

Pumpkin spice latte

Every street corner in London is coercing me into buying a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte and since the combination sounds so utterly dreamy, I thought I’d try my own wholefood version instead. An organic pumpkin needing using up in the veg box could surely not have met with a yummier […]
