I love my morning Hot Chocolate, I'm not a coffee drinker, however sometimes I add a little Cold Pressed Coffee to my Hot Chocolate. I know most of you probably are coffee drinkers but this recipe can be combined with coffee or might give a few ideas on increasing your coffees fat content. I created it to assist my morning fasting, it gives me enough fat and protein but still low carbohydrate and high fat (LCHF). Thus keeping my Blood Sugar Levels stable in the morning, and sustains my hunger.
Homemade yogurt is so simple and you can make 2L for the cost of 2L of milk. It is a habit I created over 3 years ago and I must admit I use a Thermomix to make my yogurt, it does take some guess work out. But all you need if you don't have a thermomix is a Yogurt maker (insulated container) and a thermometer. I picked up an Aldi Electric yogurt maker for jars a few years ago and I like it to make 24 hour yogurt in this one. The longer you ferment the less lactose left however 26-30 hrs is maximum, so I do about 24 hrs and then in the fridge.
Eggplants are everywhere in our garden at the moment. I've have had many suggestions on ways to cook them but this is my go too. It is so easy and you can add whatever other greens you have like zucchini or broccoli. This recipe goes great with meat, eggs or zucchini noddles. Little Miss E enjoys the zucchini noodle option, what won her over was that it smells just like pasta when it's cooking. My other favourite is to batter sliced eggplant in egg and almond meal and then fry.
I’m sharing some simple recipes to tantalise your taste buds. They are my Children’s Favourite Recipes for 2016 - Flourless Almond Cake - Gruffalo Crumble - Delicious Nuts!!
The reason I’ve chosen to share their favourites is because we do photo recipe cards as gifts at Christmas (might be an idea you can use this year), as I get to take a cute photo of them to give as a gift that also has a purpose with the recipe on the back.
I just had to share this creation from today. The flavours totally satisfied my taste buds, so I hope you enjoy it too. Just add the following ingredients to your bread recipe (for ideas see my gluten free bread post). The bread recipe I used was similar to this Paleo Bread. The flavours complement each other leaving you very satisfied after eating, if your bread has a sweetener use honey as it just adds too the beautiful combination.
The perfect slice to have handy for snacks or breakfast on the run. It is soft but not crumbly, and very versatile. I'm always changing the nut, seed and dried fruit combinations, and other extras to include are:
- spices like cinnamon and vanilla
- fresh fruit (great for those brown bananas)
The chocolate isn't a necessity, it tastes great without it. My children thought it was a real treat to have a little chocolate on top, my Mr X called it "Scribble Slice".
A beautiful biscuit to accompany any soup, platter of dips and cheese, eggs or salty snack on the run. It is a very versatile recipe as long as the ratio of water to chia seeds stays the same. Regular adjustments I make are:
