In the Intolerant Cooks Pantry: a guide to Tolerant Eating

Sometimes when you first start looking at cutting things out of your diet, eliminating certain food types or wanting to substitute one thing for something else, it can be very hard to know where to start. In some cases you could be thinking “What else IS there?” And people are frequently asking me “What do…

Vegan Pumpkin Scones: Wheat-free, dairy-free, soy-free, nut-free, vegan.

I made some pumpkin muffins last week with a maple syrup frosting that I’m still perfecting the recipe on. While making these for the second time, my boyfriend/guinea pig excitedly suggested pumpkin scones if I had any leftover pumpkin. So I thought I would give them a whirl and they turned out DELICIOUS!

A successful man enters the water…

Today I went to Bikram Yoga at the centre at Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast, 5 mins from my home for the first time in a month or so. Had a GREAT class! My favourite instructor Mara was on today, she is such a lovely and insightful person, her words always soothe me or…

What’s the difference? Vegetarian VS Vegan

Today on “What’s the difference?” we are going to look at the difference between Vegetarians and Vegans.

Coconut Oat Cookies: Wheat-free, dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free

I love cookies. Who doesn’t love a biscuit with a cup of tea? I’m a person who loves to snack throughout the day but unfortunately I don’t enjoy snacking on fruit and nuts all the time. With a Candida problem several fruits have been cut-out of my diet, all dried-fruits are gone, and all other fruits have…

Thought of the day… I have only one body

Biggest thought of the day, is about how people have been saying to me that what I am doing (by cutting a whole bunch of stuff out of my diet) shows great commitment and dedication. Which is a lovely thing for people to say, it’s like recognition that they understand this is a hard thing…

Coconut Curry: Gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, tomato-free

It can be difficult to find a delicious curry recipe that is easy to pull off but doesn’t come from the side of a packet mix. Many main meals are this way actually, but tonight let’s start with a curry. These days you can get various brands of mixes gluten-free (like the “passage to…” brand)…

When you can’t eat EVERYTHING

One of the most common things that people say to me (or that I have said to some of my other friends previous to this experience) when you say you have to cut something out of your diet, or that you can’t eat something (ie: sugar) is: “But cutting out SUGAR?? That’s in EVERYTHING!!” You…
