Low fat custard (Ray Peat Inspired)

ray peat, protein, low fat, metabolism, hormones

So given my latest direction of Ray Peat inspired eating, custard would have to be one of the most perfect dessert foods. Milk, sugar, maybe eggs, maybe gelatin – they’re all on the preferred foods list for optimal health in Ray’s book. So it’s not like you are cheating in any way when you eat this – you’re supposed to be!

So perhaps I should put ‘guilt free’ in the title?

Mushroom Cottage Cheese Dip (or Sauce)

ray peat, dairy, cottage cheese, hormones, health, easy recipes, healthy

While I am exploring all things Ray Peat and now low fat in particular, one food I needed to make peace with is Cottage Cheese. (Note on dairy intolerance at the end.)

Real cheese is fine, but the fat content really blows your daily limit of fat in one mouthful, so it needs to revert to ‘a taste adding condiment’ of 1 or 2 tablespoons only, not the half cup or full cup normally added to a dish.

White Choc Fruity Bites & FYI on Teeth Remineralisation & Phytic Acid

coconut, coconut butter, dates, prunes, healthy snack, dessert

So since I’ve been eating a little more along the Dr Ray Peat principles, read what that is here. I’ve found that drinking sweetened tea or coffee with honey and not rinsing between, has affected my teeth. A bit of sensitivity and lingering dull pain here and there.

Cut straight to the end – I’ve fixed it – however it started me looking into the remineralisation of teeth.

Chocolate Sweet Potato Frosting

Full confession: this was not my idea.

I first heard about it on Mummy Made it and because I am currently zoned in on all things icing and frosting at the moment to zshush up my creations, I thought I would explore further.

Google reveals that quite a few knew about this about 5 years ago and I’m late to the party! Better late than never right?

Banana Buzz Smoothie (hint, hint – coffee!)


SmoothiebananacoffeeSo I’m back from Cherry Blossom gazing in Japan and wow(!) what an amazing place that is for a number of different reasons. Will elaborate more in a coming post but for now, I just wanted to show you my latest breakfast-on-the-run creation.

With both more fruit and coffee coming back into my life, start the day with a Ka –BANGO!

Potato Shortbread Cookies (Gluten free, 4 ingredients)

potato starch, shortbread, coconut, gluten free, 4 ingredients

Since I’ve discovered that heating nut flours like almond flour etc actually increases the oxidisation of PUFAs (poly unsaturated fatty acids) in them and kind of makes them toxic (eek!), you can understand why I’m not so keen to continue making up recipes with these nutty flours in it.

DIY Healthy Chocolate Chips


Every time I was in my local health store, I would look at the packets of healthy choc chips longingly, thinking of all the yummy treats to which I could add them – like my ice cream, brownies, slices, even biscuits.

But at $24 a pop for a little packet, that seemed a little indulgent to me – I want healthy ingredients, but that’s a bit ridiculous. And the non-healthy ones were not at option.

Christmas Round Up

healthy, cacao butter, coconut oil, raw honey

Not sure what it is about December but as soon as it hits, the panic sets in!

I always feel like I have more time than I do to get things organised and it freaks me out when I realise I don’t! How about you?

One year, I’d love to go away for all of December and January and just skip it. Bask on a beach maybe?

As you can imagine, I haven’t been adding to the stress by trying to create new treats – the imagination is still running wild with new options I want to try, but I’m being kind to myself.

So I thought I would leave you with a few suggestions on nibbles and sweets from my past recipe pursuits, that may work for our hot weather Chrissy and keep everyone healthy at the same time.

And even better, at the end of my list, Sonia from Natural New Age Mum has compiled a fantastic resource of Christmas wholefood recipes from other healthy writers – lots of great ideas there. Totally saved me the work and more stress! Cheers Sonia!

Cherry Orange Festive Slice

So this slice started out as something a little different.

I had just whacked together a few things in my pantry and fridge and was expecting to work miracles again without too much effort. Unfortunately this time… not so lucky.

My taste testers said “yeah it’s ok, but a bit bland.” And I had to agree. Not sweet enough or flavoursome at all really. It was kind of like my White Christmas Slice but no where near as good.

So luckily with these melt and mix type creations, you can melt it down again and add more things. So that’s what I did.
