Potato Mash Substitutes: Sage & Celeriac Mash

Celeriac Sage Mash

Celeriac is more than likely one of those vegetables you walk past at your local fruit and veg market without even considering. Although it appears a little ugly on the exterior, like all good books, you should never judge a vegetable buy it’s cover. Celeriac is rich in vitamins A, C, K and E, carotene, micro elements and other nutrients that are known to boost the health of our digestive system, reduce inflammation and improve liver function. It makes yet another wonderful substitution for potato mash during the winter months.

Creamy Chocolate Popsicles

Chocolate Popsicles

Last summer, our niece came to stay with us over Christmas. Being the good host that I was, I decided to use this opportunity gather some (brutally) honest 4-year-old feedback on a number of my recipes. These creamy chocolate popsicles, were a clear winner and can honestly say that I felt her pain when she had to “share” the last one with her Dad (tears all round). This delicious recipe is gluten free, dairy free and free from all refined sugars.

Your New Year Healthy Habits Challenge


More often than not our goals for the new year will include something along the lines of “get healthier” or of course “lose weight”. Whilst I am forever in support of these goals, I believe a lot of us go to hard too quickly and as a result, end up falling off the bandwagon come the end of Jan or early Feb. For this reason I have compiled a list of 12 healthy habits for 2015, all of which you can tick off one month at time. This means that by the end of 2015, not only will you have achieved your goal of “adopt a healthier lifestyle”, you will look great, feel amazing whilst all in all, crossing 12 health challenges off your “to-do” list. Here’s what you need to get started on your “2015 Healthy Habits Challenge”…

Pumpkins are well and truly in season and rich in flavour throughout the winter months. As a result, we’ve been mixing up our traditional breakfast, lunch and platters with one of my favourite recipes, my Roast Pumpkin Dip.

Gluten Free Gingerbread Biscuits

Gingerbread Biscuits

I’ve tried so many different variations of gluten free gingerbread biscuits and got frustrated when they would turn out either incredibly crumbly or flavourless; oh and don’t even get me started on making your own gluten free flour mix, who knew so many starches existed? So, I set out to make my own. The result? Nutritious and delicious GF Gingerbread that will satisfy the Christmas craving!
