Iv’e been listening to a lot of 80’s music lately. It’s been buzzing along in the background as I’ve been working, and last night I started dreaming up gluten-free versions of the songs I kept hearing. Call it a stress reaction, call it an overload of old hits, call it what you want. But the […]

No Christmas without gingerbread.. ..and a really truly great recipe is a must! Gingerbread really is the flavour of the season. Shops are full of it, cafe’s are full of it, even your favourite coffee’s full of it these days. If you don’t mind I’d like to strip it back to basics. Back to my grandmas […]
We call them “Peppernøtter” which means peppernuts. They contain pepper and they’re shaped like nuts, so why not.

(image source) Sunscreen is probably the most difficult thing to find a decent natural alternative for. I’ve written a review of Invisible Zink previously, and now it’s time for another alternative. Most sunscreens, although totally necessary, contain a cocktail of chemicals, parabens, perfumes and preservatives. The big question is as always: how can I get broad spectrum […]
We’ve all been there..
(main image source) A while ago I received an email from a lady named Thérèse, asking me to share her story with my readers. This is not a common occurrence, but after reading about her journey I really wanted to pass it on to you guys.
Can you believe it? I’m not sure I can! I certainly consider it a grand complement and a great privilege to be featured as Blogger Of The Month in such an acclaimed and brilliantly successful online magazine as The Modern Womans Survival Guide. I can’t believe they picked me out of all the talented and […]
Being on a complete elimination diet and living in sunny Australia poses one giant conundrum; sun protection. Most sunscreens, although totally necessary, contain a cocktail of chemicals, parabens, perfumes and preservatives. How can I get broad spectrum high protection without all the gunk?
You’ve been gluten’ed! -What now?
Even though every day should be a celebration of celiac awareness, the official Celiac Awareness Days around the world are possibly the very best opportunity we have to help the world understand more about the disease, and push development in the right direction. Although we all do our bit to raise awareness every day by informing […]

Last week was declared “pie week” on the Great Australian Bake Off, and nothing could be more Aussie than a good old pie! Just don’t tell an American that.
This is info that we can’t say enough times, and the photo literally says more than a thousand words! Getting Glutened: The Reality.
…that if you follow Thank Heavens on Twitter and Instagram you’ll see things that never reaches the blog. Such as instant restaurant and product tweets, really cool info that I happen to come across, and the odd picture of something awesomely glutenfree -like that insanely delicious chocolate mud cake! Tweet-tweet!
Mother-in-law popped by for a quick dinner-and-dessert visit yesterday, and I thought I’d bake something. I have become “that one who bakes”. I used the to be “that one who brings the fun” and now I bring cake. Not that cake isn’t fun. Just very different fun.
I got glutened last week. Again! And again it happened after what seemed like an endless conversation about pitfalls, followed by nodding and quite convincing agreeance. Never the less, somewhere between waitress and chef the message got lost. Why must it be so hard?
At 00.50 tonight my parents will be touching down on Australian soil for the first time ever. They’re mid-air as we speak, and no doubt dreaming of sunny days and never-ending beaches in the magical land of Oz.
