Gowings Peppermint Paleo Slice

I’m becoming more and more intrigued by the Paleo way of life. The more I read, the more it makes sense, especially from an unprocessed, wholefoods point of view. Essentially it’s about minimising your grain intake and upping the ante on premium organic meat and enjoying an abundance of sustainable fish. Most importantly it’s all […]

Superfood Cacao Paleo Smoothie

I can’t take all the credit for this little ripper ‘cos my super smooth chef Jasmine (a.k.a. Jazzy Pops) did all the work, but she insisted I call it this so here it is. We have one of these every morning to break the Paleo Intermittent Fasting 16 hour fast. It’s packed full of everything a […]

A celebration of superfoods and traditional ingredients, it’s not for everyday dining yet it will be a sure fire hit for any special occasion. Rich in protein and a little too much sugar – even […]

Since moving to Byron Bay in 2008, our joint birthday parties are scarce, however this year the Bluesfest is […]

Baker’s Delight

We all know how delicious those superfoods can be especially when cacao and chia meet, marry and have baby muffins with a whole bunch of other stuff. Now if you’re of the gluten free variety and ditching the spelt, wheat and other rising stars then chances are you might be sprinkling a few pinches of […]

Raw Tiramisu

Here’s a variation on an old favourite. This recipe is reworked from one I found online from The Vegie Bar in my old neighbourhood of Fitzroy.   It’s a bit fiddly, but a recipe well worth practicing for a special occasion. I’ve altered it a little to remove traditional stimulants of coffee and rum so […]
