Chocolate Mousse-cream

Sometimes, you just need something creamy and frozen and delicious, like ice cream for example. This recipe has all those qualities, is made from real ingredients, and is really easy. (more…)

Paleo Lasagne Bake

We had a random pumpkin growing in the back yard. You have to love free food! Our neighbours have quite a few things growing in their garden, and have been quite generous with them over the last year. This weeks score is a pumpkin from an intruding vine. So I’ve made some pumpkiny things to use it up. This is the first. (more…)

Save the world! 3 tips for a healthier body, planet and society.

This last year I’ve embarked on a paleo journey of sorts, and it feels so good I just can’t go back. I just keep delving further in to a healthier and better way to do food and living, and keep finding more ways to shop and eat that are really beneficial, not only for me, but for others too.  (more…)

Paleo Lemon Slice

I’ve been a little sporadic with posting, I probably started my last post with something along the lines of “Gee its been a while..” and here I am again…

It has been christmas and new year, which means it’s a little bit difficult to stick to eating paleo recipes. But I’m trying pretty hard right now, so to keep me motivated, I’ll share some with you and hopefully get some feedback! (more…)

Homemade Sesame & Herb Crackers

If there is just one obsession I have, it’s making efficient use of resources and time. But there’s not just one, I have several obsessions. Some more of my current ones include my daughters cute feet, measuring people’s bathrooms and kitchens, and creating amazing healthy recipes. This recipe comes from the first obsession though. It will double as a pastry base or pizza base, and in fact I did double this and make another thing that will blow your socks off. Apple Custard Pie! Recipe to come for that, which used the leftover egg yolks, created two items of health and deliciousness to cook at once, and all Paleo. Because, not only is it a hip thing to do, it will make you feel amazing.

Sesame & Herb Crackers

20130923-171214.jpg

1 1/2 c almond meal
1/2 c LSA (ground up mixture of linseed, sunflower seed & almond)
1 egg white
1 tsp water
1 tsp olive oil
Pinch of Himalayan salt
1/3 c sesame seeds
Dried herbs to your liking

Put all dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk together wet ingredients. Add wet to dry and mix together until you get a dough like consistency. Press it altogether into a ball, and place between 2 sheets of baking paper. Roll the dough out thinly, (about 3mm). Peel off the top layer of baking paper. You could cut shapes with cookie cutters or just cut into rectangles. Place on an oven tray and cook for about 10-12 mins. Keep an eye on them, you want them just brown and crunchy.

Drizzle with a tiny bit of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and keep them in an airtight container.

A tasty savory treat, go really good with cheese, meat and my amazing Spicy Onion Pickle. Or just some raw veges and avocado… Anything you can dream up. Enjoy!

NB So you can double the first 6 ingredients on this list. That will give you enough for crackers, and a base for apple pie, or a pizza base, or a pumpkin pie. Split the mixture and then add the bits for crackers in one bowl, and a bit of sweetener for the other half in the other bowl, if you’re going to make a sweet pie. I will post recipes for that soon, in the meantime, experiment away!
