Cultured Cashew Eggnog Cocktail

egg nog
A cultured cocktail for the whole family…..
I made this dairy free eggnog for the first time this Christmas for my family and they all loved it.  The basic recipe can be enjoyed by the whole family and sometimes I add a splash of Cointreau to the big kids glasses.
My boy doesn’t like yoghurt, but he will drink my cultured eggnog in a heartbeat.

We also like to enjoy it as a quick breakfast entrée if we’re heading out early or meeting friends for brunch.

If you can’t get our cashew yoghurt, just substitute in any yoghurt to make your cultured eggnog.  Refer here for our stockists. Continue Reading →

Paleo Cultured Cacao Cashew Mousse

This decadent dessert ticks all the boxes for me….cultured, superfooods, high fat, antioxidants, wholefoods, raw, dairy free, activated, gluten free….

Actually the biggest tick is that it takes two minutes to make and only dirties the Vitamix (blender) which I use all day every day anyway.

This recipe makes 6 serves. My small ramekins are 7cm dia, and 4 cm high.

Paleo Kale Waffles

 

My kale waffles are a huge hit in our house.  The kids love to have them with avocado and freshly squeezed lemon juice, cultured veggies and/or cultured cashew cheese.

I love them because they are super easy to make and a great way to get some leafy greens in.

They are Paleo and are free of dairy, grains, sugar, yeast, gums, soy & nuts.

WILD vs Packet

SauerkrautsWhen people read my fermented sauerkrauts, dips, pesto and salsa labels and see that they contain just veggies and salt or fruit they sometimes say, is this fermented, there’s no culture? Can you use this one?

I get this question a lot, so thought I’d explain here as there are a lot of new starter cultures hitting the marketplace as fermenting is becoming popular and I’m getting requests to use them everyday.

I prefer Wild fermentation over using a starter culture. Wild fermentation means Continue Reading →

GAPS Intro FAQs

 

I get a lot of questions about GAPS and what we all ate on GAPS Intro.

My family of 4 undertook GAPS intro together and I basically used my Kehoe’s Kitchen facebook page to make a photo diary of all the yummy healthy foods we were enjoying along the way- Yes, ENJOYING!!

spirooli GAPS intro spag bolMy kids loved GAPS intro.  They were never hungry and my daughter who was 18 months at the time actually threw tantrums when I stopped making soup for breakfast!

Both kids did extremely well and they both gained 5kgs.  This is just a quick post to direct you to my GAPS intro facebook album , answer some GAPS FAQs and to help inspire you in the kitchen on your healing journey.

People also often ask me to recommend reference material regarding GAPS.  I recommend you read the GAPS book by Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride from cover to cover.  Doing GAPS is really hard work and reading the book is a great reference guide and motivator.  Dr Natasha’s blog, Gaps.me is a great free online resource too.  You can use control F to search the FAQ page.

Butternut, Pepita & Prosciutto Biscuits

IMG_8843

I just made this recipe up this morning to take to the local Brisbane Paleo ‘meet up’. I hope they like it. If I was making these for a standard diet outing I would have added some salt, as most people like strong flavours, sweet or savoury. I figured if any group should be able to appreciate wholefood natural flavours it should be this group and I am excited to get their feedback, but a little nervous.  Perhaps I should have just made sweets….
