Savoury Beetroot Crepes (Paleo, Low Carb)

Savoury Beetroot Crepes (Paleo, Low Carb)

Do you like colourful food? I love it. Not talking about the artificial colours which make children hyperactive. But the beautiful colours real food has. The calming green of spinach, sun bright yellow of capsicums, loving red of beets… Because food is not just tasty, but beautiful as well, isn’t it? And I truly believe that food which is colourful (again, talking about whole foods) is good for us. I can imagine all the amazing nutrients entering my body when eating colourful meals. So I try to play with my meals a bit. Put colours on my plate. And if you know me, you would know I try to sneak veggies wherever possible. For example in my smoothies or porridge (like in my last posted recipe for Indian Spiced Porridge) or in this case to the colourful Savoury Beetroot Crepes (Paleo, Low Carb).

Cauliflower Gnocchi (Paleo, Low Carb)

Cauliflower Gnocchi (Paleo, Low Carb)

Cauliflower is in the limelight for quite a while now. Because you can make nearly anything from it. Pizza, rice, mac and cheese or even ice cream. I know, right? But it has a perfect neutral flavour and smooth texture, making it easy to hide it in variety of dishes while increasing your veggie intake. And since cauliflower is finally back to being affordable, I am happy to include it more into our daily diet again. So I made a Cauliflower rice from half I bought on the market, because that and zucchini noodles are probably the best and easiest side dishes ever. But as much as I love my veggies, I also felt like something a bit fancier to accommodate my meals. So from the other half of the cauliflower I whipped up these Cauliflower Gnocchi (Paleo, Low Carb).

Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)

Spaghetti Squah Pad Thai (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)

After a couple of weeks I’m back with another Asian classic, this time visiting the kitchens of Thailand (at least in my mind).

Today I’ve decided to share my version of Pad Thai, because it’s one of the most popular Thai dishes, yet not many people make it at home. But it’s much easier than you think. And of course I tuned the recipe up a bit, so it’s as nutritious as possible. That’s why I’m using spaghetti squash instead of noodles. Because it’s delicious, healthy and super easy to cook with. If you can get your mitts on this special variety of squash, you should definitely give my Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb) a try. It’s packed with fresh amazing flavours and nutrients.

Beef San Choy Bow (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)

Beef San Choy Bow

I just love Asian cuisine. But. It’s a known fact that most of the restaurants are using lots of sugar and sauces with crazy amounts of ingredients to add more flavour to the dishes. That’s why I often try to recreate a healthier option at home, using whole foods and ingredients that I can actually pronounciate. Of course some dishes are never going to taste the same when made at home (yes, I’m talking about you Ramen), but I think I came pretty close with this Beef San Choy Bow (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb).

Laksa (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)

Laksa (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)

Happy Monday, everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t posted a recipe in weeks, but my website actually underwent some serious issues and I wasn’t even able to log in. However, everything should be back to normal and I’m happy to share some recipes and travel tips with you again, starting with one of my current favourites – Laksa (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb).

I would like to say that I’m posting a soup recipe because it’s winter and it’s cold and soup is a perfect dish for this weather. That’s the right introduction, isn’t it? But well, that would be a lie. It is indeed winter in Australia right now. But it’s definitely not cold. I actually can’t believe how lucky we are here in Queensland with the weather. It is mostly sunny (Sunshine state?) and the temperature hardly goes bellow 18 °C. Crazy, right? So this is me, posting a recipe for Laksa (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb) simply because I like soups. Because I think that any weather is soup weather.  Continue reading

Broccoli And Pumpkin Salad (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb, Vegan)

Broccoli And Pumpkin Salad (Paleo, Whole30, Low Crab, Vegan)

I just made the best salad ever. I honestly can’t stop drooling over it. It’s THAT good. So if you are looking for a side dish which would complement your weekend grilled specials, look nowhere else. I’ve got you covered with the Broccoli And Pumpkin Salad (Paleo, Whole30, Low Crab, Vegan). Also, there is actually no raw vegetable in this salad. So it doesn’t have that over healthy (and super boring) feel. But it’s crispy, fun and savoury. And it’s so much easier to digest. Honestly, you just have to try it. And don’t tell me if you don’t like it. Because it’s good. I know it 🙂

Moroccan Lamb Shanks (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)

Moroccan Lamb Shanks (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)

It’s definitely getting colder here in Aus and the lower temperatures are tempting me to eat all the comforting food. Anything warming, filling and full of flavour. And I think it’s ok to listen to my body and give it what it needs. Well yeah, if it craves fries I would think twice 🙂 But when it’s about hearty meals combining a good protein, bit of starchy vegetables and warming spices? Give it to me now. Because what is more satisfying in this weather than a generous portion of Moroccan Lamb Shanks (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)?

Sage And Lemon Roast Chicken (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)

Sage And Lemon Roast Chicken (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)

Winner winner, chicken dinner. Ok, I just couldn’t help myself. But I think that this Sage And Lemon Roast Chicken (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb) honestly is the winner here. Because if you are looking for an easy but scrumptious meal which would feed a few people and not break your bank account this is it. Roast chicken can be quite boring, I know. But it can be also the highlight of the night. You just need the good spices and technique. Then add some fancy (ish) side like the Fennel And Butternut Squash Puree and you have a winning dinner.

Fennel And Butternut Squash Puree (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)

Fennel And Butternut Squash Puree (Paleo, Whole30, Low Carb)

Fennel can be quite strong in flavour when by itself and that sets a lot of people off. But combine it with the sweetness of butternut squash and creaminess of ghee and you’ll find a smooth yet decadent side dish. It’s perfect with grilled and roasted meats where it almost plays the main role. However it also perfectly supports full flavours of more exotic dishes like curries and aromatic stews.
