Bre’anna with husband Chris
Today, author, blogger, wife and mum Bre’anna Emmitt from He Won’t Know it’s Paleo joins us for a chat! Thanks so much for your time Bre’anna – and huge congratulations on the publication of your first cookbook He Won’t Know it’s Paleo! It is a beautiful book with gorgeous, inspiring recipes that, as you say, “bridges the gap between a standard diet and the paleo Autoimmune Protocol”, and in such a delicious way! For those of you that don’t know, the name of Bre’anna’s blog came about after Bre’anna started preparing paleo meals for her husband and family – and it was 6 months before she told her husband!
time to celebrate!
This is going to be the quickest recipe ever written! I made this salad today, for our first official AIP picnic here in Sydney, and I thought it turned out so well I couldn’t wait to get it written up and on the blog! (Well that, and I didn’t want to forget what I’d put in it 😉 ) Continue Reading
yummy baked chicken served with roasted sweet potatoes and onion with a fresh green salad
Roasted or baked chicken is such a favourite of mine. It’s usually pretty cheap, it doesn’t take much for it to taste amazing and you can keep the bones to make stock! Yay!! Even If I’m not having a whole chicken (like for this recipe, where I used the super juicy thighs), I just collect together the little bones, freeze them and keep adding to my stash until I have enough to boil up for a good old bone broth. Win-ning! Continue Reading
Meat and 3 Veg Meatballs
I love making meatballs, they are so easy to batch cook and great to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And these little babies are my new favourites! Not only are they a delicious way to get extra veg into your meal, they also pack a great anti-inflammatory punch from turmeric, garlic and ginger.
Green and Gold – Australia Day Salad!
This is such a simple salad to throw together, it tastes great, looks impressive and is the perfect combination of green and gold, plus fresh Aussie produce for Australia Day! Continue Reading
AIP rosemary and lemon roast lamb chops with roast sweet potato and kale chips
I’m into week 6 of AIP now, who would have thought it? Certainly not me! I remember first reading about AIP a couple of years ago and thinking “oh no, something that restrictive is definitely not for me”. I’d just been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and I was still at the stage of thinking that thyroxine was going to put right everything that had been wrong. Then some more time passed and I experimented with cutting out sugar, cutting out gluten, cutting out processed foods and noticed I was definitely feeling better. Then I started reading about AIP again and the more it started to make sense to me… Continue Reading
Why the long knife?!
Liver is one of those things that I “should” eat, but I don’t. I tried to make pate once, didn’t go down well….(I definitely need to tweak that recipe because I’m sure I can make it work – but that’s another story!). Liver is a significant source of the fat vitamins A, D, E and K, as well as various B vitamins (Chris Kresser has more info on this here). It’s also cheap! And for these reasons I really want to make it work for me – whether I’m on the AIP diet or not. Continue Reading
AIP Bacon and Veg Fry Up
This is a super simple dish that I have for breakfast, lunch or, if I’m feeling lazy, dinner. When I’m not following the AIP diet I add an egg or 2 as well and have just one rasher of bacon. Continue Reading
Our home away from home!
I’ve recently returned from a 4 week roadtrip to Cape York, the most northerly tip of Australia, if you haven’t been you must go – it’s amazing! The photo above was taken on the Old Telegraph Track a couple of days away from Cape York. And yes – that car was literally a home away from home (bed in the back – need I say more?!). Continue Reading
Orange is just such an Autumnal colour isn’t it?! It’s the colour of the leaves on the trees and covering the pavements, of oranges and mandarins and clementines that really come into their own during the colder months…..and of course fat juicy pumpkins!!!! It’s such a warm, nourishing and delicious colour that when you eat something like a steaming bowl of thick pumpkin soup you feel like you’re being hugged from the inside! Continue Reading
