Paleo Chocolate Orange Tartelettes

 

by Angela Law

Healthy desserts are my absolute weakness, but when I am constantly buying them out I cannot help but wonder how much sugar (refined or not) is actually being pumped into me. All in the name of “healthy” “raw” or “vegan” treats. It is usually around this time that I start to experiment at home because at least I will know what exactly is in them and I can easily adjust the sweetness to my own personal flavour.

Warm Baked Apples In 35 Mins

by Angela Law

That’s it. I am officially declaring peace on dessert. Now, I’m not sure if “declaring peace” is actually a thing, but the way I see it is that for far too long, women have feared dessert, avoided the cake cabinet and been riddled with guilt when they do actually indulge.

Yucatan-Style Slow-Cooked Pork Shoulder

 

This recipe comes from an extremely talented woman. Tanya was my amazing cookbook photographer and stylist; she is also a blogger (when given time in amongst her hectic schedule), and a fellow paleo-style enthusiast. I’ve been bugging her for a while now to share a recipe with you all, as we’ve had many discussions about food, flavours and her family recipes. Finding a photographer with the right style I was looking for was a challenge, but the blog on her website sealed the deal. Her recipes always look incredible! Just check out her blog! So as a huge lover of Mexican food myself, it was only appropriate that I share Tanya’s incredible pulled pork shoulder recipe. Enjoy!

High Protein Pancakes

I see a tonne of pancakes on Instagram weekly. Vegan ones, paleo ones, decadent ones, fruity ones, chocolate ones, protein powder heavy ones, you name it. Everytime I looked at the recipe though, it didn’t quite sit with the way I do things in my kitchen. The ingredients didn’t suit me.

Wholefood Mango Cheesecake (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free)

 

Mangoes always remind me of Summer. As soon as they hit stores, you know the season of bikinis, tanned skin, cold fruits and sweltering days is in full swing! As they are a high fodmap food, I can’t enjoy them as often as I did when I was little. But I couldn’t help myself when it came to the idea of a no-bake mango cheesecake!
