Ok, so I’ve mentioned a few times now that I am moving away from a keto diet.

Raw Coconut Bounty Cookies

coconut butter, paleo, raw diet, healthy, ketoAfter I nixed the peanut butter for peanut powder – less damaging unsaturated fat – I ventured to try Coconut Butter.

So brought the jar home from my local health shop and was excited to try it. Open it up and… it is as hard as a rock! What the…

As well as the fact that all dairy food is supposed to cause inflammation in your body, much like grains do. But I don’t stress about eating and have it anyway.”

Lemon Noodle Salad

lemon noodle saladI just wanted to share with you my current favourite salad – the Lemon Noodle Salad. I could eat this at least four days in the week, as it’s just so light and tasty and really hits the spot. The best part is that it’s super easy (I don’t cook any other way) and is really adaptable to whatever you have in your fridge.

So there are only a couple of essential ingredients to make it taste similar to mine and these are:-
