Cheesy Asparagus and Zucchini Chips

a1

I made this entrée for a dinner party (when I say dinner party I really mean myself and two others) a few weeks ago and it was a hit. It is so simple and easy to do. It fed three of us, but we eat like horses so I would say this serves about 4-5. You can use whatever cheese you want and however much you like. I have just put down my own measurements below. Continue reading

Vanilla Choc Pomegranate Parfait

pom1 This is probably the best breakfast I have made in a while, which is saying something because I love all of my breakfasts. I actually tried to lick the blender clean. The measurements in this recipe are a rough estimate as I didn’t write them down but you can’t really go wrong with this. Just try to make sure the berry mixture has a nice, thick consistency.

My favourite protein is NuZest which is a pea based protein.

Soft Paleo Cauliflower Tacos

mia-9This weekend I cooked a paleo style three course meal for two of my friends. As we are big fans of Mexican food (isn’t everyone?), I thought I would do a grain free, gluten free and carbohydrate free (which my type 1 diabetic Editor loved) version of soft tacos. The tacos are pretty much just made from cauliflower and eggs and taste delicious. I got the inspiration for these from an awesome website called Empowered Sustenance and just added some extra herbs and spices to the recipe. I have also included the recipes for the guacamole, mince and salsa in this post.
