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 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.

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….

Crispy Chicken Skins & Drippings

IMG_7508 - Copy

My boy is absolutely mad for fat and skin. He loves these chips. They are so much healthier than the packet trans fatty acid crisps at the shops and they are so simple to make. I get my organic chicken skins frozen from my local butcher for $8.99/kg.  They save the skins from skinless cuts like chicken breast, thighs and legs that would otherwise be wasted, shame.  This is a great way to use the whole bird, make some crisps and get some liquid gold organic dripping.  Read more about why we eat fats here under the fat paragraph.

Dairy Yoghurt

IMG_6968 We love our natural dairy yoghurt. Most people can tolerate 24 hour cultured dairy as it’s virtually lactose free and the casein is pre-digested. I make it in bulk, 3 L at a time, using my small slow cooker and dehydrator. I make so much, so I can drip half to make Labnah and Whey. Continue Reading →
