Eating for your gut bacteria is all about variety

Lunch yesterday – blue cheese, pomegranate, olive & balsamic tomato salad turns out to be a great combo! Since reading the research into feeding your gut bacteria I’ve been making an extra effort to include more variety of plant based components into my week. The salad we’re growing in the

‘Learning it’ food to celebrate the start of advent

Happy Advent everyone! 🎄 We’re celebrating with a pomegranate for breakfast. As it’s been such a long time since we last ate it pomegranate has reverted back to a ‘learning it’ food. For B this has meant successful tasting but a few jewels was enough. For W (who loves doing

Fancying something sweet & refreshing but still healthy?

Have you tried grape sorbets? Ingredients: grapes Method: put grapes into the freezer for at least two hours. Then enjoy whenever you fancy. Yes that it! The only caveat I’d give is that if giving to young children make sure you quarter the grapes as they are just the right

Making your new potatoes last longer 🥔

Our first new potatoes of the season 😍 B loved helping harvest – she brought the bucket up, carefully took the potatoes from the veg bed & washed them in the bucket ready to be cooked. B is never more content than when she’s helping. We only have a few

Breakfast conversations

Cheats moussaka in the making

An old favourite in the making, packed full of veggies & full of flavour. Today’s protein & fibre boost comes from chickpeas. #lovepulses Lamb can be expensive but it’s delicious so my advice is to bulk it out with veggies so that it’s cheaper per serving yet retains all of

Pizza dough

Dough rolled our on semolina flour (if I’d have found it earlier then I’d have substituted 1/5 of the four for semolina flour). Semolina give a much crispier texture. Dough about to go in very hot oven (240’C) until starting to crisp. We’ll then top with tomato purée (herbs for

Apple explosion

How not to bake your apples! We’re lucky enough to have lots of apples on our tree so I thought I’d have a go at baking them. If you don’t have a tree keep an eye out for garden gate stalls as you can pick up a bag of apples

Bananas all about to go over together? Try making dried banana: Slice bananas and dry / dehydrate at 65’C for 6-7 hours. As dried fruit is relatively high in sugar and can get stuck in teeth it’s recommend that these as with all dried fruit are eaten at a meal
