Just because you don’t want to or can’t eat gluten doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the Christmas classics this year like gingerbread. This recipe is full of so much spice and flavour that it will be a definite crowd-pleaser this silly season.
Over the past few months I have been consuming very minimal animal products which has pushed me to get more creative with my meals. This is one of my favourite vegan meals because it’s delicious and It’s a great portable lunch option for work. Just put all the ingredients into a thermos, when you’re ready to eat it add hot water, give it a shake and you’re good to go.

This salad is so simple yet looks so pretty and as an added bonus tastes amazing! It’s the perfect dish to bring along to a dinner party if you want to impress friends but don’t have long to throw something together. If you feel the dressing might be a bit of pomegranate overkill a mixture of apple cider vinegar, tahini, olive oil and lemon would also go nicely with this.
4-5 zucchinis, thinly sliced lengthways (should be about 4-5 slices per zucchini, depending on how thick they are) 3 tbsp coconut oil Salt and pepper to taste Seeds from 1 pomegranate (leave 3 tbsp aside for the dressing) 3 big handfuls rocket ¾ cup almonds, crushed (optional)
This banana bread has only 6 ingredients and is gluten free, refined sugar free, grain free, fuss free, crap free and nut free! I have used coconut flour in the recipe, which I know can be hard to find and a little expensive (a little does go a long way though), so I have found this great recipe on how to make your own coconut flour using shredded coconut which can be bought at most supermarkets.

3 very ripe bananas
3/4 cup coconut flour (see intro)
3/4 cup milk of choice (I used coconut milk) Continue reading →
