- 2 carrots (grated)
- 2 zucchinis (grated)
- 1 large brown onion finely diced
- 1 cup of fine polenta
- 6 eggs beaten
- 1/4 cup of coconut oil
- 4 slices of woodsmoked bacon diced (optional)
- A handful of whatever fresh herb you would like to flavour, I used basil this time but parsley, oregano, thyme (cut up finely) all work well
- 1 clove of garlic crushed
- A sprinkling of cheese for the top (optional)
- Himalayan salt and pepper to season
- Toppings; cherry tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms, poached eggs or slices of smoked salmon
Throw everything in a bowl and stir!
Bake in a greased glass or ceramic dish on 180 degrees covered with foil to keep the moisture in for about an hour or until skewer comes out clean.
Top with topping of choice.
Serve warm from the oven as a main with a side salad or have a slice in the fridge to eat cold as a snack
Another great option with this recipe, is to use muffin trays to make individual portions, as it freezes so well and can be taken out as needed or popped into the kids lunchboxes!
- 6 litres of cold, filtered water or enough to cover the chicken (I recommend using a very large pot so you get lots of broth).
- 2- 3 FRESH organic chicken carcasses and skin-less chicken meat (1kg of chicken in total). (skinless chicken is necessary to reduce histamines)
- 2 onions, quartered (if salicylate intolerant, use leeks and spring onions)
- 1-2 carrot, quartered (if salicylate intolerant, use swede)
- 3 sticks of celery
- Several sprigs of fresh thyme (omit if salicylate intolerant)
- A bunch of parsley
- A generous pinch of celtic, rock, Himalayan or sea salt
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (omit if salicylate intolerant)
- Place the meat, water and vinegar in a large saucepan, cover with a lid and let stand for 30 minutes. This will give time to the vinegar to start drawing minerals from the bones into the water.
- Bring to the boil.
- Over the next half hour, a foam-like scum will rise to the surface. Skim it several times.
- When no more foam is surfacing, add the vegetables, thyme and and salt and reduce heat to simmer.
- Cook for 2-4 hours.
- Ten minutes before the end add the parsley. This will increase the mineral content of the broth.
- After cooking, remove carcasses and veggies with slotted spoon and strain into a container.
- The broth can then be stored in pint-sized glass containers in the fridge. Chill well before freezing.
- 3 large or 4 small beetroots, peeled and boiled until tender
- 2 bananas
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten

- 1 tbsp. raw cacao nibs or 75% dark chocolate, chopped (optional)
- 1 tbsp. chopped walnuts (optional)
- 3 tbsp maple syrup or honey (optional)
- 60ml melted coconut oil
- 2 tbsp beetroot juice (made from cooked beetroot)
- A handful of fresh rose petals (pesticide free) to garnish
- Blend the beetroot in a food processor into a paste.
- Squeeze the paste through a sieve and collect 2 tbsp of your beetroot juice to set aside for the icing (you may have to add 1 tbsp water to this). Keep the paste in a bowl.
- Combine all ingredients in a food processor, and blend until smooth.
- Stir in the cacao nibs, dark chocolate bits, or nuts if desired
- Pour into a well-greased pan about 20cm x 20cm
- Bake at 180C for about 40 minutes.
To make the icing:
- Mix the melted coconut oil and beetroot juice together.
- Roughly drizzle half of it onto the brownies.
- Sprinkle with rose petals.
- Drizzle over the rest of the icing.
- 1 cup very ripe avocado flesh;
- 1 banana;

- 1 onion, diced into pieces or sliced into slices
- 4-5 cloves garlic, crushed
- Raw, unfiltered honey, or a combination of raw honey and Manuka honey, (enough to cover the onions and garlic)
- In a jar or pot (if heating, see below), place your onions and crushed garlic cloves.
- Pour in the honey until the onions and garlic are covered.
- Either leave to steep for a few hours (or overnight) or
- Place the pot over a very low heat (don’t heat too much or you will lose all the healing properties of the honey)
- Cook for 30-60 minutes. When the onions and garlic soften, and the honey becomes more liquefied, you know that your syrup is ready.
You can either leave the onion and garlic pieces in the syrup or simply strain the syrup through a fine mesh strainer. Store it in a jar in your fridge and use it freely.
- 1 cup oats, rolled or cracked – NOT the quick cooking kind, but the ‘old fashioned’ whole oats (organic is best)
- 1 cup warm water
- 2 Tblespns plain whole milk yogurt, whey, kefir or buttermilk
- 1 cup water
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 1 Tblespns ground nuts & seeds such as; Brazil, almonds, walnuts, pepita’s, sunflower seeds & flax seeds.(Don’t use these if diverticulitis is an issue)
- Adding psyllium husks, chia seeds and slippery elm will increase the fibre content. (Don’t use chia seeds if diverticulitis is an issue)
- Coconut sugar, rapadura sugar, raw honey or real maple syrup (not maple flavouring) to sweeten.
- Touch of butter, ghee, cream or milk, optional, but especially good for the kids
- Other nice optional additions include; grated apple, chopped dried fruit such as; sulphur-free apricots, figs, sultanas or cranberries.
Mix the oats with warm water and whey or yogurt, cover and leave out (preferably not in the fridge unless the nights are hot) for at least 7 hours or overnight. In the morning, bring an additional cup of water to a boil with the sea salt. Add the soaked oats, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for several minutes. Remove from heat, stir in optional flax seeds and other fibre and let stand for a few minutes. Serve with the ghee, butter or cream and sugar, honey or real maple syrup.
