10 minute dinner – Spicy Thai Noodles

Spicy Thai Noodles

This is great go-to dish that can be whipped up in ten minutes or less. Perfect for when you get home late from work and you need to eat something pronto.

It is healthy and nutritious but most of all it is super tasty so whole family will enjoy it.

This makes a great main meal and the left overs (if there are any) are great the next day for lunch. I have also served this as an entree at a dinner party.

3pm hunger buster – Cherry Ripe Slice

Cherry Ripe Slice

When mid afternoon hunger strikes, you need to have something healthy on-hand to snack on.

This no-bake cherry ripe slice recipe is quick to make and goes perfectly with a cup of peppermint tea. It is a little power bar of goodness that will get you through the afternoon right up until dinner time. The raw cacao gives it a decadent chocolatey taste and the dates and cranberries add some natural sweetness.

You can also serve up this slice as a dessert with a scoop of cashew nut ice cream.

Revealed: From IBS to Abundant Wellness

Interview Kim Armstrong

I am super excited to be sharing with you my interview by Joanna Steven: From IBS to Abundant Wellness – wellness coach and yogini Kim Armstrong shares her story.

Today, I’m delighted to share with you my interview with Kim Armstrong, a certified wellness coach, yoga practitioner and published cookbook author. Her regularly updated website, which you can visit at Your Abundant Wellness, is full of mouth watering recipes — all gluten and dairy free. Think salmon pate, chocolate, smoothies, and more. The photos are stunning!

Joanna Steven: Kim, thank you for sharing your story with us today! Let’s dive in…

People don’t often start blogging about gluten free or dairy free diets just because they love the food. There’s often a story behind it all. What diet did you follow growing up, and how did it evolve to become the one you thrive on today?

Kim Armstrong: I have always had a love/hate relationship with food. I was a fussy eater and ate little amounts at a time. As I moved in to my teens, this was replaced a fixation on eating low fat food with the primary goal to be thinner.  By the time I was in early my early twenties, I was mainly living off low fat, prepackaged foods and the result was that I was skinny but extremely unhealthy with continuing symptoms of tired, headaches, bloated and uncomfortable stomach complaints.

Coconut Pie

Coconut Pie

This is one the quickest desserts you can make, it is a one bowl wonder. Take one bowl, mix all the ingredients and cook in the oven – and what comes out is delicious coconut pie.

As it cooks, the heavier ingredents fall to the bottom and form a pie base, the coconut rises to the top forming a yummy crust, and the middle is akin to a light egg custard.
