Have I mentioned I love podcasts?

9 Feb

I just got home from my morning walk and listened to a fabulous podcast from The Wellness Guys.  I’ve posted about them before and if you haven’t checked them out, click here to start listening!  It’s free and they talk about all different sorts of wellness, interview some fabulous people and have a variety of shows to listen to.

Episode 167 was with Janella Purcell who I just love!  You may know her from the TV show Good Chef/Bad Chef. I got so much out of this podcast – I won’t spoil it for you, listen to it for yourself.

The one thing I absolutely loved was to eat S L O W food – seasonal, local, organic and whole foods…. I LOVE this acronym and think I’ll steal it for myself, thanks Janella!

If you want to find out more about Janella, check out her website here.

Have a fantastic day 😀

Grain Free Cookies

22 Feb

I came across this recipe from My Whole Food Life, a blog which has some great simple recipes.  I’ve been wanting to make some cookies for a few weeks but haven’t trusted myself to make my favourite cookies, Healthy Crunch Muesli Cookies (from Teresa Cutter) as its hard for me to stop at 1, 2, 3 maybe 4 or 5 ha ha….  These ones were pretty good and I am happy with eating just 1!

You will need:

100g almond meal (you call mill whole almonds in your thermomix for 10 seconds)

60g coconut flour (this is more than the original recipe as I found the batter too wet)

50g coconut sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

85g coconut oil

40g almond milk

3 eggs

1 vanilla pod (scrape out the seeds or you can use vanilla extract instead)

Method:

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

After milling almonds, place all other dry ingredients into your TM bowl and stir for 4-5 seconds on speed 4.

Add all the wet ingredients and stir through on speed 5 until combined.

Roll out into balls, flatten and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and cook for 12 – 15 minutes.

Cool completely before enjoying with a cup of tea!

I have kept mine in the fridge and they are still fine after a week.

Enjoy xx

Love my teacup from friend Mel :)
