A guide to Lima, Peru

In September last year, I jetted off on the trip of a lifetime to Peru, and, as part one of two, I’ll be indulging myself in a Lima themed nostaglia trip today. Like potentially many other people (or am I just a pleb? I’ll take it) I knew little to nothing about Lima before I  … Read more

Staying, eating and doing in Cusco, Peru

Welcome to Part 2 of the Peru series: Cusco. I’m calling it the Peru series, because I had too much to say to fit into an individual post. TIA for your understanding. Cusco, with it’s Spanish influenced terracotta buildings, was my favourite of all the Peruvian cities, with Arequipa a close second. Despite the culinary  … Read more

Grain free Christmas apple minced tart with spiced meringue

I have been gluten free for about five or six Christmases now, and each year I have accepted the status quo: that I will inevitably watch with envy as my family scarf down minced pies with reckless abandon. This year, however, I’ve made the call not to sit back and take missing out on dessert lightly,  … Read more

Gluten free, vegan, low FODMAP mac n’ cheese

Whenever I’m feeling sorry for my FODMAP self, I think of the low FODMAP vegans. As a general rule, vegans (or the vegans I see on Instagram, please forgive me) seem to eat a lot of fruit, and a lot of legumes – both heavily restricted on the FODMAP diet. If I couldn’t rely on  … Read more

Gluten free spiced pumpkin pancakes

I’m not even being cutesy and blogger-y when I say that pancakes will never go out of style, and that the limit for pancake recipes does not exist. Pumpkin, banana, chocolate, plain – there are pancakes for every possible mood and occasion. These ones are gluten free and low FODMAP, all the while still delicious and a  … Read more

Nut free, gluten free, ‘Life Changing fruit Loaf’

First things first: This recipe, which has essentially revolutionised bread for a huge number of people, is a grain free, nut free, fruit loaf style adaption of The Life Changing Loaf recipe by My New Roots. In a world where people get so up in arms about their Instagram picture being regrammed, it’s disappointing to  … Read more

Grain free sesame chocolate chip brownies

Yes. I know. A new recipe for brownies. Say what you will, but I feel like brownie recipes can never truly get old. They are always waiting to be reinvented, because everyone loves a good brownie, and every recipe developer loves to reinvent the wheel. So here I am. I kind of stumbled upon this  … Read more

5 ingredient gluten free lemon and caper carbonara

I’ve had somewhat of a lemon revelation of late. I used to walk away in bemusement when friends would marvel about how everything could be improved with the zesty citrus. I was never the person to use that customary wedge with a bowl of pho, or with fish n’ chips. I’m unsure what specifically has clicked and  … Read more

Seasonal apple, parsnip, hazelnut and goat’s cheese tart

Seasonal eating. The older I get, the more I realise that the aspect of a globalised world I previously enjoyed (that is, being able to purchase figs and raspberries in the dead of winter) is not really all that worthy of celebration, particularly when it’s mainly for a ‘gram shot. Not only are there the  … Read more

Preserved lemon roasted pumpkin, Greek Yoghurt and chilli

Preserved lemon: is there anything it can’t do? Pumpkin roasted in preserved lemon brine, and served with roasted preserved lemon itself, elevates a scrappy fridge dinner to something else entirely. Since becoming increasingly intolerant to everything under the sun, I’ve had to try and get a bit more creative with how I flavour things (given  … Read more

Chocolate zucchini sheet cake with avocado

What is a zucchini doing in a chocolate cake, you might be asking? I’m glad you are, because I am about to tell you. The humble zucchini is somewhat of a FODMAP friendly superfood – it is filling, mostly liquid, rather bland (no offence, zucchini, I’m bland too) and can take on literally any flavour  … Read more

Balsamic brown sugar roasted strawberry caprese salad

Instagram is a purveyor of many things: The skinny tea model, the destination you’d never heard of but must immediately travel to, the rainbow salad and/or smoothie bowl with a hundred different superfood powders and star shaped fruit cuts. On a more subtle level, but equally as able to induce jealousy, I’d say, is the  … Read more
