One of my healthy living coaching clients asked for a gluten free pizza recipe the whole family could make and enjoy together and it reminded me of an experiment Olivia and I had done when she was at home during lockdown. This is the weirdest pizza base you will ever make – really a pourable base rather than a dough -  but trust me, it makes the best crispy thin crust pizza you’ll ever try. And it’s all vegan and gluten free too. What’s not to love about Friday Pizza from now on!

Directions:

I love sharing my passion for health, nutrition, plants and plant medicine with you so I’m thrilled that so many of you have asked about how to eat enough fibre to support the gut. It made me realise that what I now do intuitively, alongside my coaching, is actually very new to a lot of you so today I’m breaking it all down.

If you’re struggling with digestive issues, thinking that post 40 you have to put up with weight gain, mood swings and the worst aspects of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and menopause, this is for you! 

I recently saw a cry go up on the Riverford Tribe FB page (where I get my organic fruits and veg) asking for ideas for what to do with a glut of cauliflower. There’s rarely a glut in our house! When they’re in season, we usually have my Moroccan spiced cauliflower steaks every week! And I love cauliflower rice and Cauliflower couscous. But I thought it was about time I came up with a hearty, warming soup for those cold days when you want something warm for lunch, and you have a slightly yellowing cauli in the fridge!

Ingredients

100g desiccated coconut

We’re eating less and less meat these days and have really started to embrace being vegan 4 or 5 days a week. I only ever buy organic chicken from Riverford, where we get our organic vegetable box. If I feel like I’m craving meat then this is one of my go to dishes. Super simple, the marinade helps to tenderise the chicken and the herby greens add phyto nutrients as well as vitamins and fibre.

Serves 2

Ingredients

Chicken

2 Chicken breasts (Skin off) and butterflied – see below

I often make a batch of these delicious falafels most weeks and once cooked put them in the fridge ready for a quick lunch on the run. They’re perfect with sweet potato wedges and salad or for a super quick lunch I’ll just add them to a gluten free pitta or wrap. I love to make my own wraps but haven’t mastered gluten free pittas. If you have a favourite pitta bread recipe do share it. 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 table spoon chia seeds mixed with 2 tablespoon water. Set aside while you get all the other ingredients together
  • 1 small onion/scallion finely chopped

We love sweet potatoes in our house so anything that makes a quick supper and uses them is usually a hit. This is so simple and you can prepare everything in advance and then reheat it when you want it making it a really quick supper for a busy evening when work and the kids activities take precedent.

 

Ingredients

500g organic turkey mince
2 onions
4-6 medium/large sweet potatoes
1 tbs Taco Seasoning (* see below) 

400 g Black Beans, drained and rinsed

Salt and pepper
