Bre’anna with husband Chris – check out these cuties!

 

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!

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

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.

What with it being Valencia orange and passionfruit season here in Australia, I thought what better way to use these delicious ingredients than to make some yummy gummies! They taste like sweets, but they’re good for you 🙂 Continue Reading

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

Our home away from home!

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?!).

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

Mmmm…are you going to love this!

 

I’ve been seeing a lot of hot cross buns around the place, of course, Easter is on its way! And I loooove hot cross buns…..I don’t think you understand, I really, really love hot cross buns. Really….. And although I rarely ate baked goods even before I stopped eating gluten, hot cross buns would be a yearly treat I would not feel bad about gorging myself on. Yes, gorge. I’d have maybe 4 a day, if there were some around, at work, at home, you know, wherever….It’s really lucky Easter is only once a year! Continue Reading
