An easy and delicious dessert that is healthy enough to have for breakfast or morning/afternoon tea. Gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free and also a nut free option.


I’m wanting to make the most of feijoa season and you’ve seen how much we love Feijoa’s from previous posts, so I’ve created this tasty Feijoa Crumble recipe. A perfect warming after dinner healthy treat which is great to satisfy those sweet cravings during these cooler nights we’ve been experiencing lately in NZ.

Just like the traditional crumble but without the sugar, butter and white flour – a healthier but still very tasty alternative. Read More

A decadent chocolate, buckwheat and coconut base with a salted caramel layer on top - a tasty and simple treat the whole family will enjoy yet full of nutrient dense ingredients.


I always love experimenting with raw slices and I love coconut, chocolate and caramel. So why not combine all three which go together so well. I created this decadent recipe and also included some very nutrient dense ingredients to boost the appeal even more.

The inclusion of activated Buckwheat means that this recipe is bursting with nutritional benefits. Buckwheat is a gluten free wholegrain and with the increased awareness of gluten free diets, this powerful wholegrain is becoming a very popular ingredient in gluten free recipes and used in many interesting ways. You will find that I often include Buckwheat in a lot of my recipes especially my healthy refined sugar free (RSF) sweet treats.

An easy overnight Bircher recipe, perfect for the warmer months.


I have a couple of go to breakfast options in the morning and this is definitely one of them especially on those days when I don’t have much time in the morning.  It only requires a small amount of preparation the night before and its good to go in the morning topped with your choice of fresh fruit.

This recipe is a great combination of plant based protein, essential fats and complex carbohydrates which are slowly digested keeping you fuller for longer.  The soaking of the ingredients also means it is much easier to digest helping to increase nutrient absorption.  Much better than a store brought cereal for breakfast which is often full of added sugar and refined carbohydrates with minimal nutrients.

An easy snack or breakfast on-the-go when you are short on time.


I always love to whip up a smoothie when I’m short of time or on the go. And Berry smoothies are definitely my ‘go to.’

This creamy berry smoothie is so quick and easy and super tasty.

You can use fresh of frozen berries. I usually use frozen berries. Frozen berries also result in a much thicker smoothie which I like.
