Cauliflower & Coconut Pizza

Cauliflower & Coconut Pizza

It was New Years Eve and we were meeting friends for a lunchtime gathering with our children…..  The invite said ‘bring some food to share’, so I got thinking….  What could I take without having to go and buy anything!? Cauliflower and Coconut Pizza

I had a couple of recipes for making Paleo Pizza bases – one was with cauliflower and seeds.  The other was with coconut flour and eggs.  Now I had tried them both in the past and both were nice – so I thought I would experiment and combine the two!  This is how it came out….

It’s almost the weekend, so I thought it would be a good time to send a Chocolate Brownie recipe out!  A friend of mine gave me some aubergines from the glut they had in their garden….  so what was I to do with them??  And then I remembered a great recipe I had seen but not tried:

Vitamin C Boost Powder

Boost your Immunity this Autumn…. Vitamin C Boost

Can you feel the change in the air…..  Autumn is here and now is the time to boost your immune system with food source Vitamin C Boost.

If you are beginning to feel the first sniffles of a cold or a sore throat coming on, it is time to super charge your health.  Autumn is often a very busy time of the year so it’s important that you get the nutrients that you need.

Vitamin C is one vitally important nutrient that our bodies require on a daily basis.  Especially since humans do not have the ability to make it (as most other mammals do!), we need to consume it in our food.  Vitamin C is water soluble and is not stored well, so regular in take is necessary for good health.  There are a number of factors which use it up more rapidly, so if you are exposed to any of the following – then it’s time to up your intake!

Easy Detox Tool for Happy Hormones!

Our body’s are amazing things – they are constantly working to give us balance and energy from the nutrients being converted from our food to nourish our cells, as well as removing toxins, chemicals and excess hormones.

We have natural detoxification pathways that process and clear chemicals, cellular waste and hormones from the body and this is how we avoid the buildup of unwanted toxicity and ensure that all of our body’s processes are working efficiently. When our pathways for detoxification are blocked or are not working efficiently, we can’t produce and use hormones and neurotransmitters optimally.
