Chai spice Granola

I cannot believe I haven’t shared this recipe with you all yet. This is a staple in our house. The hubster gets a little grumpy if we run out, as weetabix does not keep him full until lunchtime! I love oats in the mornings and although porridge is my favorite, I don’t always have the…

Easy Raw Cheesecake

This recipe is so easy to make with relatively simple ingredients; this dessert really packs a wow factor! I say pudding/dessert… Team Peck have been known to have it for breakfast! It is a sugar-free and gluten-free creation which can be tweaked and altered to any flavour combinations you may like. I personally like this…

Nickers Bars

Yes Nickers bars, no S for sugar! I still love chocolate and choccie bars, but since giving up sugar I have to remind myself I’m not avoiding flavours but the feeling I get after I eat a sugary treat. Mostly now I need a nap! Im not going to waffle on, as you need to…

Banana chai loaf

Doughmuffs… gluten-free, vegan-friendly and refined sugar free!

I am not a follower of a paleo diet, caveman blueprint, fasting, abs, bikini kill (no wait that’s a band)…I don’t do diets or count calories. I eat real food. I avoid processed rubbish and try to get the most out of the food that I eat. ‘Hold on one cotton picking second’ I hear…

Nice to meet you, where you been

I could show you incredible things Magic, madness, heaven, sin… Where have I been? Check out the date people; 1977, yes, this year I will be turning 40. The closer I get to this milestone in my life the happier I feel about the person I am becoming and the journey I have had so…
