My November TVK Box


Two TVK boxes arrived at my door this time - oh my! Check out the beauty box underneath, I can't reveal the contents since it's a Christmas present but if you're interested in getting one for yourself, you need to subscribe here. The contents of my regular box were well up to expectations and of great quality - which isn't a surprise because the contents of all the boxes I've received to date have never failed to please!

Vegetable Pot Pie GF SCD


There's nothing better than to come home to a warming and comforting pot pie, especially during the cold Winter months. This grain free vegetable pie features a crumbly crust made from almond flour and extra virgin olive oil and a selection of winter vegetables bursting with colour and taste all immersed in a sweet onion and herb gravy and not a grain in sight.

A Few Things I Like - 2


I was supposed to be posting a recipe this weekend but the daylight ran out on me today and I couldn't take the photos so I thought I'd share with you a few more things I like as a follow up post to the one I shared in September. I'm going to experiment with taking photos at night so if anyone has any tips please share!

My October TVK Box


As some of you already know, I subscribe to The Vegan Kind and receive a wonderful box of goodies every month. Usually most products are suitable for a gluten free diet but unfortunately this month two of the treats weren't! But then I discovered a little pot hidden beneath the large onion bhaji snack bag which more than made up for my slight disappointment!

Butternut Squash, Carrot & Quinoa Nut Roast GF


I've been making this awesome nut roast regularly throughout the Summer. Quick and easy to prepare, it's packed full of protein from the quinoa and the nuts and the butternut squash and carrots give it a subtle sweetness as well as a lovely warm, orangey tinge.

Gluten Free Granola GF


Did you know that granola was invented in the 19th century? Originally called granula, it was created by Dr James Caleb Jackson, a huge believer in the benefits of water therapy. Dr James Caleb Jackson opened his own spa in Dansville on the site of a mineral water spring and this grew to be one of the largest water therapy centres in the world. A vegetarian, he believed that the key to good health was diet.
