Do You Have to do This at Parties?

Do You Have to do This at Parties?

Do you BYO Gluten-free to a Party? Over the weekend we spent time in Brisbane celebrating a close friends 40th Birthday. Turns out, my gluten-free dairy-free double layer Coconut Chocolate Cake was a delicious lifesaver for a Celiac guest at the party. She had brought her own container of fruit salad and drank several mugs of tea while others drank alcohol. She politely thanked and refused every single tray of food (mostly fried pastry assortments) that came around in front of her. She smiled with patience every time, never getting annoyed or frustrated, even after the dozenth time she was offered a serving of gluten.

Healthy Raw Chocolate Workshop in Toowoomba!

Easter is Coming! For real. I remember walking around the local supermarkets in January seeing chocolate eggs and Easter bunnies already lining the shelves, right alongside the leftover Christmas chocolates…. Now that Easter is really coming, it’s time to get educated about what chocolate actually is, and how you can make the most of its’ naturally occurring nutritional benefits before roasting and processing destroys most of them. easy personal loan bad credit So here I am pleased to announce that the 3 hour Easy Chocolate Delights workshop has been updated and now offered in the MindBodyFood Kitchen at Highfields. This means reduced cost, smaller

Chocolate Cashew Cheesecake with Salty Caramel & Choc Sauce

Chocolate Cashew Cheesecake with Salty Caramel & Choc Sauce

Decadent AND Healthy! My parents were big on entertaining and hosting parties when I was growing up. We’d often have large groups of people in our backyard and patio indulging on the delights of 80’s finger food and flans. There would usually be a spread of colourful desserts like lemon slice, custard slice, chocolate éclairs, chocolate tarts, lemon tarts, fruit salad, jelly and ice-cream, trifle and of course, cheesecakes! Even though it would be many years until I connected the dots between dairy and the immediate phlegm, biliousness and sick feeling – like you’ve swallowed something well past its’ due

Peppermint Slice Recipe Paleo Raw Vegan Unrefined

My Famous Peppermint Slice Recipe! I’ve always loved peppermint slice! Just loved going by the bakery whenever I felt the yearning for a chocolate biscuit base with a dark chocolate topping, sandwiching a thick layer of sweet, creamy peppermint icing! Those were the days when I had little knowledge of what I was eating and had no interest in learning what it was doing to my blood sugar, insulin or hormones. Holistic health wasn’t something I practised back then and nutrition wasn’t something I took much notice of. These days I don’t go the bakery. Haven’t for years. But I do still enjoy

How to Make a Dark Raw Chocolate Pizza

How to Make a Dark Raw Chocolate Pizza

Raw Chocolate Pizza The Christmas Version! Pizza was never my favourite food. In fact a homemade group effort pizza was the first food item that contributed to my inaugural Bulimic offering when I was much younger. I’ve since made peace with it by making my own gluten free and cauliflower versions, decorating with fresh, whole, natural and colourful toppings that are nutrient dense and pack a punch of flavour. Yummy clean eating that doesn’t cause digestive (or emotional) upsets. Being the raw chocolatier and recipe creator that I am, it was only time that I came up with a raw

Healthy Chocolate Mousse | Dairy & Sugar Free, Vegan, Paleo

Chocolate Mousse Anyone?! I do love a chocolate mousse that’s smooth, creamy, rich and easy to eat! I don’t like the feeling of a heavy, bloated, queasy and bilious tummy afterward though! Our house has a variety of tastebuds, like most families do, which sometimes means a harder task in pleasing everyone. It becomes a challenge to create something that doesn’t contain the flavour or aroma of one particular food yet still provides the texture so that everyone will love it. Even though bananas are a wonderful source of fibre, iron, potassium, B vitamins and tryptophan, Mr 12 is NOT a fan! So chocolate mousse made with fresh

Coconut Pancakes with Blueberry Chia Seed Jam

Nuts for Coconut! There’s certainly a huge turnaround in recognising the health benefits of Coconut Oil from the days when it was simply labelled a saturated fat and bad for you. I was given a book about Coconut oil and it’s many benefits a year and half ago when I was increasingly starting to find more uses for it in my daily food intake. Now I use coconut oil, coconut butter, coconut sugar, coconut flour, coconut flower nectar, coconut syrup, coconut milk and coconut cream!

Fudgey Goodness in a Praline Truffle! This week I’ve been focused on Raw Chocolate Pralines for my upcoming eBook, Easy Chocolate Delights.

I made about three batches of raw chocolate pralines this week using various combinations of nut butters, dark and white chocolate, and experimenting with textures, flavours and enrobing (covering the praline in chocolate, see pic below). Beloved was eating the first batch by the spoonful and telling me how much he loved me, so I knew I
