My go to food “swaps” and favourite recipe inspirations!

Just because you are eating healthy or gluten intolerant doesn’t mean you need to miss out on your favourite foods.  Some of my favourite food “swaps” are:


Pancakes 2 ways:

  • 2 eggs + 1 Banana; OR
  • 2 eggs + spoonful of LSA / almond meal + spoonful of yoghurt.

Simply mash up the above ingredients, then add in some of your favourite extras like cinnamon, berries, shredded coconut, or whatever else you fancy!  Cook in a little bit of coconut oil in a pan.  Keep them small so they’re easier to flip, and keep an eye on them as they don’t need to cook for long.


Zucchini “pasta”

This is super simple, use a potato peeler to make your zucchini “pasta”, and cook briefly in a little coconut oil until soft.  Serve up topped with whatever sauce you desire (I like tomato, onion and garlic).  You can also use for the pasta layers in lasagne – yum!


Chocolate “mousse”

Avocado + cacao + honey – blend until soft and creamy, put in the fridge to set & enjoy!


Cauliflower “cous cous”

Just blitz your cauliflower in a food processor until you reach the desired consistency.  You can also use this to make ‘fried rice’ using cauliflower instead of rice.


Chicken schnitzel

Coat chicken breast in egg, then cover with almond meal (you can also use desiccated coconut – yum!)  Cook in coconut oil until golden brown and serve with vegetables or salad.


If you’re making cakes / muffins replace the flour with almond meal or coconut flour – tastes delicious and makes them a bit more dense and moist.  Also always go for cacao as opposed to cocoa, check out this article on why.
