Peach Crumble

Crumbles derive from Britain, and can be made with sweet or savoury ingredients, although the sweet version is most common.

There is nothing I love better then a nice warm crumble covered in custard, (however I am yet to find a custard recipe that is Paleo Friendly!) so this dessert is one that was a must! I have many childhood memories that involve crumbles so to find a way to still keep this in my diet was a dream come true.

The following recipe serves 4:

4 peaches (peeled if desired, i personally didnt)
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup chopped almonds
4 Tb honey (though if the coconut taste is overpowering add more – I added an extra 2 Tb)
4 Tb melted coconut oil

Slice the peaches and play in the dish, I used a 18×25.5x5cm dish.
In a bowl, mix the shredded coconut, nuts and the honey. Once happy with the taste and consistency, pour onto the peaches evenly.
Sprinkle the melted coconut oil over the top and bake for 30 minutes at 180 Degrees.

Please note I found this recipe here and plan to return for more wonderfully easy recipes to try!!!

My first recipe – Sweet Potato Chips

Guys,

My first recipe is a very basic and easy, but oh so tasty play on the world famous chips!

Everyone knows how difficult it can be to not cheat on a diet, how some days you think “oh sod it, one little break won’t hurt.” But I am trying to replace all cheats with a healthy replacement.

Earlier in the week Harry was complaining to me that he was fed up of eating healthy and fancied chips. So here is my way of still being healthy but being able to eat a similar meal with those who aren’t on the Paleo diet, with sweet potato chips.

I started with two sweet potatoes, cutting the ends off and cutting the potatoes into quarters. Then cut each quarter into long strips to make chip-esque shapes. (You can keep the skin on or peel it off – I have tried it both ways and like both, keeping the skin on makes it crispier though,)

I have placed my chips into baking sheets to soak up excess oil and to hold seasonings that fall off – it also keeps the washing up slave (I mean the husband) happy!!

Sprinkle salt, pepper and Rosemary to season according to taste and drizzle with oil as seen below:

Pop into the oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes. Then take out to shake and turn the chips over before adding back into the oven for a further 25 minutes.

This is the final result after 45 minutes. (Check out the yummy venison on the plate! Please excuse my awful knife skills, it was a Friday night…. Need I say more?)

Healthy eating… Sorry, what?

So in my last post I mentioned about being apprehensive regarding eating to ease symptoms of PCOS.

It has been recommended by a fellow blogger to try the Paleo diet, upon research it appears to be in laymen terms… The caveman diet. All meat and not much else.

In reality it means you are allowed grass-produced meat (what’s that you say? I’m actually getting Harry to google and it is free range/organic meat), fish/ seafood, fresh fruit and veg, eggs, nuts and seeds and healthful oils.

You cannot eat cereal, dairy, sugars, potatoes, processed food,  salt and fatty oils.

Ive been super good and ate vegetables for lunch with yoghurt (I know dairy but it’s better then a chocolate bar right?) tonight is venison steaks with sweet potato, butternut squash and more veg. *air highfive*

I looked up some recipes and ideas for meals as I don’t like omlettes so that use of eggs is redundant. But I found banana pancakes, like hell yeah!!! Sounds super easy and tasty.

There is also peach crumble, meat loaf, coconut cookies and a chicken and cashew wrap.

Im getting excited about this healthiness, if I get clearer skin and less bloat then I’ll be a happy lady 🙂
