BREAKFAST JUICE

by in Recipes June 27, 2019

A Breakfast Juice/Smoothie sitting outside in the fresh morning air, what a lovely way to start the day!!! Juices are a great way of getting lots of nutrients into you.  Whilst normally I actually prefer to eat my food rather than drink it, sometimes it is nice to have a delicious juice.  They are especially […]

A VERY QUICK AND EASY LUNCH

by in Recipes May 5, 2019

Using up the left over Chicken from the BBQ Chicken Thighs from the night before, I made a very quick and simple Stir Fry for lunch. In total it took me about 10 minutes from beginning to end to make lunch for myself and my husband. I added the splash of EVOO to the frypan […]

KIMCHI – DELICIOUS AND GOOD FOR YOU!

by in Recipes June 25, 2018

I LOVE Kimchi.  I make it regularly and eat some almost every day.  I also make sauerkraut and have been lately trying out other vegetables to ferment (more on this next time).    The fermentation process encourages essential bacteria such as Lactobacilli  to flourish in foods such as Kimchi.  These probiotic strains are very important […]

QUINOA PASTRY VEGETABLE QUICHE

by in Recipes January 14, 2018

I recently made a vegetable quiche for dinner using Quinoa flour for the pasty base. The Quinoa flour gave the pastry a sort of nutty flavour which was good. Using Quinoa flour made this pastry gluten and wheat free, and Quinoa is a good source of protein. The filling can easily be made dairy free […]

QUINOA WITH PINEAPPLE AND VEGETABLES

by in Recipes January 12, 2018

Here is another quinoa recipe, quite similar to the last one I posted, except this is vegetarian and has a teriyaki flavour. Also being in a rented house the utensils are limited, so I cooked it slightly differently and I think the result is actually better. This quantity fed the two of us with leftovers […]
