Sage and Onion Polenta Squares Tue 25th Sep, 2018 - 9:03am by Emma Cockrell

Polenta is a medium-ground maize meal, traditionally used in Italian cooking. Being gluten free it can be a helpful food for those avoiding wheat, rye or oats.

Echinacea Tea to Support Immune Health Wed 19th Sep, 2018 - 11:44am by Emma Cockrell

Support the Immune System As the weather becomes more unsettled it is wise to turn our thoughts to supporting the immune system. My last blog noted the potential benefits of Turmeric and Ginger.  Another herb that is well recognised for its immune supporting properties is Echinacea. Prior to 1950 and the introduction of antibiotics, this […]

Buckwheat and Carrot Flat-Bread – Anti-Candida – Gluten-Free Sun 26th Aug, 2018 - 6:44pm by Emma Cockrell

Encouraging clients to include a wide cross-section of nutrient-rich foods is always a top priority. This Buckwheat and Carrot flat bread uses an alternative grain, available in many supermarkets and wholefood shops.  Buckwheat is gluten-free and rich in rutin (which supports good circulation). Beta carotene-rich carrots reduce the amount of flour required and create a […]

If you have ever visited the Middle East, the taste of mildly spiced, golden falafel is a rich treat! This recipe avoids the hassle of frying and produces a delicious savoury dish very simply.

Lemon and Garlic Mayonnaise, Anti-Candida Mon 20th Aug, 2018 - 12:10pm by Emma Cockrell

Making a quality mayonnaise can help to transform a limited diet, adding both flavour and beneficial calories. Healthy oils help to bring a sense of ‘fullness’, making meals more satisfying.

Red Pepper Hummus, Anti-Candida Wed 15th Aug, 2018 - 5:03pm by Emma Cockrell

Back in the early 1980’s, when I first started to make hummus, it was not available in the shops. Fast forward nearly 40 years, and there isn’t a deli or supermarket that doesn’t stock this Middle Eastern dip. This ease of accessibility can be both helpful and unhelpful! Hummus provides a great protein snack which […]

Courgette Hummus – Anti-Candida, Medium Oxalate Fri 10th Aug, 2018 - 1:27pm by Emma Cockrell

It seems that the hot dry weather has been especially good for courgettes this year! My kind neighbours are gifting me with beautiful courgettes that they have grown, equal in size to marrows! Courgettes are a wonderful veg to use on an anti-candida programme. Oven roasted, or panfried with extra virgin olive oil and garlic, […]

Warm Persian Aubergine Dip – Anti-Candida Sun 22nd Jul, 2018 - 8:49am by Emma Cockrell

We all tend to get ‘stuck in a rut’ with our day-to-day meal ideas. Eating out and visiting friends can often be helpful in opening up new ideas. Many of these ideas and recipes can be adapted for a yeast-free and sugar-free anti-Candida diet, and this Aubergine Dip is one such dish. A number of […]

Split Pea Tacos Thu 21st Jun, 2018 - 4:01pm by Emma Cockrell

Why a taco shell made with split peas? A challenge that a number of clients face is to find meals that are satisfying, filling and enjoyable in the light of many food intolerances or dietary complications.  While there is a big leaning in the ‘Nutrition World’ to reducing grains in the diet, a proportion of […]
