Paleo-friendly Feta and biltong snacks

Posted on December 9, 2013 by in cheese, vegetarian

paleo-friendly

Paleo-friendly eating seems to be the in thing at the moment and years ago, Atkins was on everybody’s lips and these days Paleo is the buzz word in dietary circles. Paleo-friendly eating is slightly different to low-carb eating! Diets like the Atkins and Sure-slim and I am sure many others propagate a diet that starts […]

Mushrooms, Paleo and all things LCHF

Posted on May 11, 2013 by in vegetarian

mushrooms

Mushrooms, the  spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus with a stem, a cap and gills or spores underneath the cap, that’s if you need a scientific explanation  of this deliciousness! For me, mushrooms add the earthy component to a dish. Mushrooms never steal the show, but rather hang around in the background, but leave them […]

Smoked Salmon Cucumber Rolls

My Smoked Salmon Cucumber Rolls are really so delicious. Everytime I make them, I get jaw-drop reaction from my guests. The Smoked Salmon Cucumber Rolls are also gluten-free, banting-friendly, paleo and LCHF. Sometimes I make the cucumber rolls with tuna for a quick lunch snack and the kids just love it. For the festive season we are […]

Zoodles with Pesto

Zoodles with pesto…… yum! Possibly the most flavor in the quickest amount of time. Zoodles with pesto are noodles made with zucchini for the un-informed. Which makes this dish banting-friendly, paleo-friendly, LCHF-friendly and gluten-free. Quite extraordinary for something so simple. I think zoodles came on the map with the above mentioned eating life-styles. People saw […]

Snack Times become feasts with a little planning

Snack Times

Snack times are my best times. Those informal get-togethers that end up being the best memories. Snack times can either be stressful and expensive or, with a little bit of clever shopping and cupboard stocking, most enjoyable. I thought it would be a good idea to give you a peep into my festive stock cupboard. […]

Portobello Mushrooms

Portobello Mushrooms are the big daddy of mushrooms! Portobello mushrooms are just  grown-up button mushrooms, yip, I did not know that! These meaty beauties have a scientific name, Agaricus bisporus and when they are yound and almost all white, we know them as button mushrooms, but when they are all big and grown up, we […]

Banting Bliss – Sweet Potato Cottage Pie

banting

Banting, oh my word, everywhere around me I spot the “banters”! Banting is the new dieting, like hipster is the new mainstream and pop-up is the new restaurant…… I like it a lot! Banting was started by  William Banting, a formerly obese English undertaker  who lost a substantial amount of weight by cutting back on […]

Sweet Potato, leek and Biltong Soup

sweet potato

Sweet Potato has become the new potato in our house! I cannot remember when last did I eat a potato quite frankly! Sweet Potato, being a better carbohydrate choice, has shot up in popularity since Tim Noakes dropped the LCHF way of eating! I must say, I was skeptic as I love potatoes in any […]

coconut

Coconut reminds me of carefree summers around the municipal pool in Ceres, tanning with Tropicana Suntan Lotion and eating Coco Pops ice lollies! Coconut also reminds me of Christmases gone by with grandma and her cake tins filled with Hertzoggies. Coconut Ice is another of my guilty pleasures and at our local Spar the the […]
