Wonderful Winter Fruit & Vegetables + RecipeJun 03, 2022
The temperature has dropped and it's too cold for salads and smoothies. Replace cold foods with warming foods. Start with breakfast - swap smoothies and fruit salad with warming, poached or baked seasonal fruit such as quince, pears, apples, nashi and rhubarb. If you enjoy morning smoothies, add aromatic spices which promote digestion & keep your constitution warm. Cinnamon and ginger work wonderfully well with most fruits & flavours. Swap cold breakfast cereal with a warming breakfast porridge or a protein chia pudding.
Plum, Radish, Red Onion & Herb Salad with Smoky, Hot Grilled Lamb ChopsJan 19, 2022
I love a salad made from seasonal fruit, vegetables & herbs. Summer plums, radish, and red onion pair beautifully in this salad. The olive oil mellows the sharp flavour of the radishes and plums. Just one mouthful will give you the most wonderful sensory experience. You'll keep coming back for more.

Not only are these cookies quick and easy to make, you can pretty much use what you have on hand. This version is grain free but you can also use gluten free grains such as rolled oats or quinoa flakes. They are also sugar free though you can add any sweetener you like. Though when making banana cookies, the bananas are sweet enough. And they are dairy free and egg free, though I sometimes add an egg if I want to add protein and healthy fats.

An accidental recipe! I was hoping to roast lush, summer apricots for an apricot & radicchio salad. But instead, I ended up with a roasted & disintegrated jammy, yummy mess. I had left the apricots roasting in the oven for too long while I was tidying the house for my dinner guests.
