How I’m Beating Arthritis with Food-as-Medicine (2): What I would have said to my younger self!

Sadly, my younger self wasn’t able to piece together the complex medical and research jigsaw on arthritis and psoriasis that convinced me that food-as-medicine was the ONLY way of truly healing myself from a progressive autoimmune disease – psoriatic arthritis. IN THE FIRST POST in this series I shared how good it felt to know I...

Cinnamon & Ginger Stuffed Apples for Pork, Poultry or Game

This lovely blend of flavours (sweet, spicy and slightly sour) pairs beautifully with roast pork, poultry or game and looks amazing on any celebratory table.  When I make traditional applesauce (whether silky smooth or chunky) I favour it slightly tart, to off-set the sweeter roast meats.

Best-Ever Summer Chicken ZOODLE Soup! (It’s Grain-Free)

I love pasta and noodles, but as the nasty, hidden and unhealthy truth about modern wheat and other grains (and the flour-based products derived from them) comes to light, world-wide, it really is time find alternatives to protect our gut and our health.  If you love your noodles, trust us, this alternative will blow you away! I offer this...

Beetroot and Avocado Breakfast Soup. Paleo, or Any Cuisine!

There’s a perfect solution for that ‘between’ season breakfast.  Breakfast smoothies are great in the warmer months, but what to do when mornings are still a bit (very?) chilly, and we’re wanting something warm and comforting  but quick and delicious to kick-start our day?  Oh, and transportable if possible! Hmm … So I put my taste buds to...
