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.  ...

Cajun chicken stuffed peppers

This is a great, easy recipe for lunch or dinner.  You really can’t go wrong and the sky is the limit as far as fillings go.  My favorite filling so far is the one I’ve listed here – cajun chicken with cauliflower rice.   The cauliflower is an awesome gluten free alternative to breadcrumbs and does a great job of filling out the mixture and evening up the meat to veggie ratio.  Roasting them in the oven gives enough time for the juices to get flowing on the inside, and the pepper turns beautifully soft and sweet, mmmmm… Ingredients 1 chicken breast, cooked and shredded 4 bell peppers 1...
