I wanted to share a recipe for some delicious biscuits my friend Greta brought around for me a few weeks ago. These cookies are not what you would expect! They taste and feel like a classic chocolate chip cookie but are made with unconventional ingredients. Perfectly chewy and a great option for people on a plant-based diet or those who want a gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and nut-free cookie.

Slow-rise spelt […]

Fainting spells, heart palpitations, dizziness, breathlessness, and severe fatigue were all common place in my life at that point. I had no idea this was not normal. Oh, and gut pain. Constant gut pain. Fortunately I met a great alternative practitioner who nailed my […]

There are many wonderful chocolate combinations out there. Hazelnut, sea salt, orange, chili, mint, coffee to name only a few. But I have to say that my favourite combination of all time (oh big call, but here it is), chocolate + LIME. Chocolate and lime is a match made in heaven for these here taste buds. It is a childhood favourite. So naturally I had to recreate it in this space. This recipe is a simple […]
