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!

Cauliflower Flat-Bread – Anti-Candida – Low Oxalate Thu 9th Aug, 2018 - 9:02am by Emma Cockrell

This Cauliflower Flatbread makes a great accompaniment for dips and salads. Being vegetable-based,  it can either be low grain or grain-free, depending on your requirements.

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

Why a taco shell made with split peas?

Savoury Coconut Crust Flan Mon 26th Feb, 2018 - 2:51pm by Emma Cockrell

A coconut-flour crust provides a great low-carbohydrate alternative to pastry. Being naturally gluten-free, coconut flour can be enjoyed by many with dietary sensitivities.
