Carrot, hemp seed and cashew pesto with buckwheat pasta (GF)

Goodafternoon sweet souls, wherever you are in this magnificent world. I’m sorry that I have been a little M.I.A due to the joys of work and our latest IVF adventure (pop over to IG as I save it all under my “IVF” highlights). We recently popped into Farmer’s Markets on Manning on the weekend whilst we were in Perth- probably my most favourite farmer’s market to visit when we have a free Saturday morning. As usual, we stocked on a lovely range of locally-grown, organic and farm-fresh fruit and vegetables. We found a fresh kohlrabi which I have never eaten in my life and I am still trying to figure out what to do with it. I also picked up a bunch of beautiful baby carrots and decided to recreate a pasta dish I made awhile ago.

Roast sweet potato, carrot and broccoli salad with black bean tempeh (GF)

As the cooler weather transitions in, I slowly transition the raw salads out. In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), ideally you should eat cooling and warming foods during the cooler seasons and cooling foods in the warmer months. This doesn’t necessarily mean in the form of temperature or heat but the metaphysical concepts behind the food. I am not perfect with this form of eating for your constitution although my digestion and wellbeing is definitely happier when I eat cooked and warming foods during Autumn/ Winter.

Roasted almond butter (GF)

Hello from this beautiful Autumn afternoon. As I sit here, I am feeling relaxed and at ease after finally recovering physically and emotionally from our last egg collection for IVF last month and also completing my last naturopathic exam for awhile. The thought of going back to work after four weeks off is making me feel a little uneasy when I think about it. I am also sitting here by candlelight with the remnants of homemade almond butter in a jar with the intention of sharing the simple af recipe!

Fig, tahini and buckwheat muffins (GF)

Good evening my friends. Apologies for the absence as I have been rather busy in life! A combination of work, study and leisure to be honest. I have still been busy in the kitchen cooking and baking including these fig, tahini and buckwheat muffins which have been perfect for a little Autumnal snack for the 3pm afternoon slump.

Creamy garlic pasta (without the cashews!) (GFO)

It’s hard to believe that I used to literally fear the thought of having a mouthful of pasta let alone a plate of it and boy, am I glad I snapped myself out of it! Carbohydrates… any food in general, should not be feared however in this current day and age where there is always a [food] trend to partake, it’s hard to know what is worthwhile.

Hummus stuffed mushrooms (GF)

My oh my, the weather is slowly but surely warming up. I cannot believe that it is four more sleeps until Christmas! Hubby and I are keeping it low-key this year as I live so far away from my family and his parents are going away. I recently made these stuffed portobello mushrooms with homemade hummus and they were so delicious so I thought I would post them on the blog to share.

Zucchini, banana, hazelnut chocolate cake (GF)

Good evening lovely humans- I hope you are well and happy. I have just come back from a beautiful holiday in Tasmania with my husband and I feel so refreshed and relaxed. As much as I’d love to relax amongst nature, drive around farmland, pat and feed animals and eat delicious food, I am slowly getting back to reality. I have spent the day catching up on online lectures and currently, I am writing this blog post and watching latest Riverdale episode, all whilst eating organic chocolate in my pyjamas.
