Kumara Breakfast Egg Muffins

    These are so easy and only require 3 ingredients.

Easy Paleo Chia Seed and Almond Nut Bread

Posted by Carlie Kennedy on


  This is my version of an easy Paleo nut and Chia seed bread. It toasts really nicely too. I store mine in the freezer and just have once in a while as a treat. It goes really nice with your favourite nut butter or try smashed Avocado, poached eggs and Tomato. Activating your own nuts and seeds is simple. Just soak in filtered water and some salt for 6-10 hours. (sunflower seeds only need about 4 hours)... Rinse and then you're done. Activating nuts releases the Phytic acid found in nuts and seeds, which can wreak havoc on your digestive system causing inflammation, bloating (ever felt bloated after having too many nuts this is probably the Phytic acid in them)......

Paleo Mango Chicken Curry

Using left overs is a massive thing for me. I hate wasting food. This recipe I used leftover cooked chicken from the night before as well as left over baked cauliflower.

Paleo Chilli and Smoked Paprika Kumara Chips with Guacamole

Posted by Carlie Kennedy on


This recipe is just an easy quick chuck together kind of meal. Its meat free which is exactly what I felt like tonight after Christmas and the last few days eating a lot of meat. Yes it’s quite high in carbs and fat, but after today’s workout it’s just what I need. *Note*. Make sure you keep a close eye on the chips as kumara burns easily, it’s better to have the temp low (even lower than what I’ve suggested) and cook longer if you have time. However I was hangry so that’s why I cooked it on a slightly higher temp. Chips 1 large orange Kumara (sliced thinly) 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted) 2 tsp. Smoked Paprika 1tsp Garlic powder (Fresh...
