Healthy Sweet Potato “Gnocchi” with Iggy’s Pesto

I haven’t eaten gluten in like 6 years and I can honestly say that I don’t miss it at all. I love my favourite gluten free paleo bread and was never a big fan of pasta dishes (unlike my Italian partner). But the one exception/craving I continue to have is

Paleo Lime Tart

This lime tart is so delicious and surprisingly easy to make. I have always shied away from any Paleo recipe that requires a shortcrust pastry, thinking it would be near impossible to create it without the traditional ingredients. I was pleasantly surprised with the results of this yummy tart and

My First Trimester – Carbs, Moods and More

Initially I really wasn’t sure if I was going to share the intimacies of my pregnancy on my blog. Although I have loved reading a few other blogs of pregnant mums to be, I didn’t really want to be self indulgent…would anybody really care what I ate, how I felt,

So this recipe was inspired by my autoimmune berry cheesecake. As I’ve shared in recent posts, my latest dietary limitation includes many delicious things like dates and honey so that cake was off limits (I’m currently eating low FODMAP).
