Fresh and Summery Gluten-Free Vegetarian Wraps with Dandelion, Mango & Chevre: Food From the Garden

Divine Dandelion, Mango & Chevre Wraps #vegetarian #glutenfree #lunch #summer

This recipe is lactovegetarian (contains goats milk), gluten-free, egg-free, wheat-free, nut-free. The wraps used are lactose-free. Goats milk is often well tolerated by people who are sensitive to lactose.


Gluten-free wraps served hot or cold -just as good!

In the Northern Hemisphere, summer is fast approaching, and in the Southern Hemisphere, it is coming to an end. Still, whether you’re seeing the first buds in your garden or watching the last flowers slowly hang their heads, you are most certainly making the most of whatever sun you can see. And so, a sunny, fresh and light meal is a welcome thing for all.

Besides, these delicious gluten-free wraps with dandelion and chevre are just as good toasted as they are fresh, so even if you’re feeling a bit chilly, this is just the ticket! Read More

Celebrate Autumn with a Delicious Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Norwegian Apple Cake!

Moist and delicious gluten-free dairy-free Scandinavian apple cake recipe

I love autumn!

It’s autumn in Norway, and for the first time in many years I am able to enjoy it!

Autumn is possibly my favourite season, one I sorely missed during my time in Australia. Sure, who doesn’t love sun and salty water! -But when the tree tops are on fire with golden leaves, and the earth offers up an abundance of gorgeous fruits and vegetables.. well, at that point I want nothing more than to be back home in Scandinavia.

These days I blissfully loaf around on the chilly hardwood floors in my woolen slippers, tightly hugging a blanket and a huge cup of hot tea on my “way to work”. I don’t have to loaf very far, mind you; my workplace is at the top of the stairs in my own home. Read More

Who doesn’t love lasagne?!

I’m totally lasagne crazy. Nuts, in fact, about this hot-from-the-oven, multi-layered, moist and cheesy pasta dish which never, ever fails to satisfy!

Growing up, lasagne was a bit of a treat. My mum would only make it every now and again, and usually as a special surprise on weekends. We would dig in with eager enthusiasm, and literally scrape down the tray in order to secure the very last bite. Read More

Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Blueberry Vanilla Bread Pudding with Coconut!

Best ever gluten-free blueberry bread pudding with coconut and vanilla #glutenfree #celiac #coeliac  #dessert

This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free adaptable, low-FODMAP adaptable, lacto/ovo and lacto-ovo vegetarian.



A fresh, modern take on a classic

Bread pudding is a popular dessert in so many countries, but often considered a bit of a heavy and “old-fashioned” dish. I think that this wonderful, classic pudding deserves a fresh and contemporary revival!

Out go the butter and trusty old sultanas; in come the coconut cream and fresh blueberries. This gorgeous gluten-free version of bread pudding truly tastes a million miles away from your nan’s old leftover dessert, and it’s super easy to make! Read More

The Best Gluten-Free Crusty French Bread (Baguette) Recipe!

The Best Gluten-Free French Baguette Bread Recipe! This bread is crusty and light, and SO close to the real thing! :) #glutenfree #celiac #coeliac #bread

A taste of French summers..

As a child, France was my second home. My auntie, uncle and cousins are from the south of France, and my childhood summers consisted of long, sweaty road trips through Europe, and memorable, extended visits in their Catalan village home.

I vividly remember the taste of fresh baguettes with cheese, on a blanket in the park. My aunt dishing out chunky hand-torn slices of bread, and juicy,sun-ripened melon that would drip onto our clothes. It tasted different -better, than sandwiches at home. Nothing has ever bettered those lunches, and I don’t think anything ever will. It was pure summer magic! Read More

No-tomato, no problem!

Growing up (and to this day) my mum’s spaghetti Bolognese is my number one dinner treat. In our family we’ve always had the tradition that we can choose any dinner on our birthday, and my mum will cook it. Where other family members would choose fillét mignon’s and lobster, I choose my mum’s delicious spaghetti with her homemade sauce. Yum! Read More

Cheddar, Walnut and Rosemary Savoy Cabbage au Gratin (Gluten-free)

Rosemary and cheddar cabbage gratin  #glutenfree

This is an incredibly simple and amazingly delicious dish!

Did you know that cabbage is one of the most nutritious and least allergy-provoking vegetables around? It’s also a mere myth that cabbage will bloat you and deem you to social seclusion for at least 24 hours after a meal. Not true! You have to boil it for more than 5 minutes to cause trouble, and why would you do that? Cabbage is best when it’s crisp and crunchy, so no need to boil the life out of it.  Read More

The shocking secret to health and weight loss! Why don’t we know this simple rule?

Easy movements that combat RSI and sedentary lifestyle problems

Written by Nick L. Pfeffer B.EX CEPS (bio at bottom of post)

We’re sitting ourselves to DEATH

The American Journal of Epidemiology showed that men who sat for six hours or more had a 20% higher death rate than men who sat for 3hrs or less..

But, with 8 hours a day in a job, 2 hours commuting, 8 hours sleeping and a couple of hours looking after kids or tending to chores.. where do we find the time?

That question is quickly turning into a common problem, as our lives are constantly filled with even more activities which give us even less movement. However, even if you are sitting down for most of the day, and you can’t get away; there are some very important and incredibly effective ways of catering to your body’s desperate need for activity. By following my simple exercise plan you can help your body cope with the strains of sitting down.

But why is it so terribly important that we keep moving? You might be saying to yourself: ” Can you tell me something I don’t already know?”We are sitting ourselves to death - Sedetary lifestyle solutions Read More

Bubblebutt or “thutt”? The office-effect and how to curb it!

Bubblebutt or thutt? The office effect and ho to curb it!

Written by Nick L. O. Pfeffer B.EX CEPS (bio at bottom of post)

Thutts galore!

I know many of you are in my shoes; you spend hours on end in sedentary jobs, and you find it hard to keep your motivation and energy up to hit the gym after a long day at work. We all feel that way from time to time.

The trouble is, a sedentary lifestyle can cause far bigger problems that a rounded waist, and the now-famous “thutt” (rather unattractive butt-meets-thigh physique arising from the all too familiar office lifestyle). Not only does lack of movement put you at far greater risk of developing serious lifestyle related illnesses in the long run; but in the short run you can and will struggle with issues relating to shortening of muscle tissue, posture problems and a chain reaction of pain throughout your body.

DOES MUSIC MAKE YOU TRAIN HARDER?

Does Music Make You Train Harder?

When you enter any gym or workout facility around the world you’ll probably notice the loud music that’s playing over speakers right away. Music is so common in places where people regularly work out, that a silent gym would likely feel pretty strange.

While most people just think music is there to cover the sounds of workout machines, there are actually other benefits to listening to music while you exercise. By choosing your own music and using ear-buds, you may even get considerably better results from your workout. Read More
