The Perfect Paleo Omelette

Here’s my quick and easy omelette recipe.  I love serving them individually in 20 cm stainless steel or cast iron pans, and they look spectacular served on rustic wooden boards.  My organic egg omelettes take around 5 minutes to make and they make a delicious brunch or quick and healthy dinner.  I’ve given you 2 options below – Hubby loves the one with shaved organic ham and I can’t get enough of greens so I always opt for my kale and spinach filling.... Read More

Flourless Salted Chocolate Cake

This is the perfect time to bake my favourite chocolate cake ! It’s simple to make and the secret to making this purely delicious is to use quality ingredients that taste absolutely amazing !

Coconut Crepes Suzette

I remember first making Crepes Suzette when I was working as an apprentice chef in a French inspired fine dining restaurant.  It was a purely delicious and indulgent, retro style dessert that was made in front of the diner in spectacular fashion that also included the flambé of the sauce with a little orange liqueur. These days I love making crepes using coconut flour that take them to the next level. They are light, moist  and very moorish.  My orange sauce is light and... Read More

Gluten Free Sweetcorn Fritters

This is a wonderful recipe I had published in my very first book around 12 years ago.  It’s a quick and simple healthy meal that I love making at home. These fritters marry perfectly with fresh tomato salsa and smashed avocado scented with jalapeño and freshly squeezed limes. The secret to making them so very delicious is to use fresh corn and not the frozen variety.  It’s also important not to rush the process of cooking them.  I like to do a test fritter just... Read More

Smashed Organic Eggs with Mustardy French Dressing

One of my favourite all time foods are organic free-range eggs.  We always have a dozen in the fridge at all times as they make a perfect meal for breakfast, lunch or quick healthy dinner. I remember my Great Aunty cooking up lots of egg dishes when I was growing up.  We used to raise our own hens and grow our own veggies, so a lot of our meals were based on egg and vegetable dishes.  I love to eat eggs pretty much any way, but one of my favourites is to smash them with aromatics... Read More

Mango Lassi

This purely delicious mango lassi is what I love to enjoy for a quick and healthy breakfast after an early morning bike ride. I normally like to freeze the mango or other fruit I am using, so it’s icy cold and creamy when i’ve blended my lassi.  Other fruits such as banana, papaya or pineapple are also glorious in this recipe. This is also delicious topped with healthy chef granola or pistachio nuts that adds another dimension of flavour and texture that makes this... Read More

Mango Coconut Salsa

What’s great about it: Mango is... Read More

Keeping It Clean + Natural

“I’ve designed my range of Organic Pea Protein & Pure Native WPI to be the purest form of protein supplement available on the market.

Why I Love My Smoothies + Juices

Ultimately they provide a convenient hit of fresh nutrients – the perfect addition to a healthy diet.

Pumpkin Pie With Macadamia + Coconut Shortcrust

Well this purely delicious pumpkin pie has to be one of my favourite inventions yet !  What I love about it is the simplicity of the macadamia nut crust and how it marries effortlessly with coconut and vanilla bean. I’ve used jap pumpkin to make this pie as it’s so naturally sweet, so it doesn’t require much work when it comes to sweetness. I also wanted to keep this pie very whole food and  plant based so I’ve used agar agar in place of the traditional... Read More

Dukkah – Egyptian Spice Mix

Dukkah is an Egyptian spice blend made from roasted nuts, seeds and spice.

It works beautifully with Moroccan baked organic eggs,  cinnamon roasted sweet potato or veggie burgers topped with beetroot relish and a crunchy salad. I’m not a fan of store bought versions as they are not as moorish like the ones you... Read More

Everything we... Read More
