A batch of @jowhitton and @fookassab amazing grain free dough from #lifechangingfoodsbook. This is the nut free version and I’m looking forward to all the ways I can use it this weekend.  #grainfreedough #glutenfreepastry #grainfree #nutfree #healthyeating #glutenfreebaking #glutenfreelife #glutenfreekids #dough
All the veggies and flavour makers prepped for stir fry tonight. Will add sweet potato noodles and protein for kids. I always follow @recipe_tin stir fry formula and make her “real Chinese all purpose stir fry sauce” to go with it. We all lick our bowls clean.  #dinnerprep #cleaneating #plantbased #plantstrong #healthyeating #takeawayathome #fakeaway #recipetineats #chinesefoodathome #magicsauce #eattherainbow #vegetarian #veganeats #vegandinner #vegansofinstagram
Tucking into this toor dhal on this blustery winter’s evening. I used the masala spice blend recipe from @chetnamakan book #chaichaatchutney which gives this curry such a fragrant flavour.  I soaked the split peas in an acidic medium for 8 hours, and then cooked the curry in a pressure cooker to reduce the lectins - a highly toxic plant protein- which according to @drstevengundry in his book The Plant Paradox, can wreak havoc in our bodies by causing inflammatory reactions.  I would strongly recommend this book to all my vegan and vegetarian friends as we rely so heavily on grains and beans in our diet.  #toordal #toordhal #dhaal #winter #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #plantbasedindianfood #aryuveda #theplantparadox #stevengundry #lectinfree #veganmeals #vegan #vegetarian #vegansofinstagram #cleaneating #veganmeals #glutenfreelife #vegandinner #vegansinaustralia #indianfood
The realities of gluten free living- daughter gets invited to party and I make GF cupcakes for her to take along so she doesn’t feel let out. It’s a good things I could whip these up in the thermomix in just 30 seconds!  #glutenfreelife #glutenfreebaking #glutenfreelife #glutenfreekids #kidsparty #chocolatecupcakes #30secondcupcakes #thermomix #thermomixaus #tm5
Spot the difference:  Vegan bolognese vs organic beef bolognese.  My family is still transitioning to eating more plant based meals so sometimes I’ll make a vegan version for me.  To make the meal prep easier, I’ve make a double portion of @jowhitton bolognese recipe adding all ingredients except the meat. Then I take out a portion of this base, add lentils and extra mushrooms and cook this on stove top while finishing the meat version in the thermomix  #spotthedifference #veganvsmeat #plantbased #quirkycooking #bolognesesauce #veganbolognese #kitchenhacks #mealprep #cookinghacks #thisveganlife #veganmeals #veganeats #lentilbolognese #thermomixaus #tm5 #vegansinaustralia #dinnerideas #vegetarian #healthyeating
Cheese platter for our friends. I made some vegan cheese for myself but it didn’t set. Has that ever happened to you?  #vegancheesefail #cheeseplatter #redrockdeli
Pumpkin- a favourite at this time of the year  #winter #pumpkin #southernhemisphere #lovethisvegetable #roastedpumpkin #vegetarian
You guys these Apple, Cinnamon & Date muffins are gluten free and taste like pancakes. So good!  Recipe: 2 cups gluten free flour 2 tsp baking powder 2 tsp cinnamon 1 Apple, peeled 3/4 cup medjool dates 1 egg 1 cup milk 1 tbs butter, melted  Preheat oven to 180deg Celsius.  I made this in the Thermomix, so I first chopped the apple and dates together then added the rest of the ingredients and mixed for 10sec/sp5.  Pop into muffins tin and into oven for 15-20min  #glutenfreemuffins #glutenfreemuffin #glutenfreebaking #feedfeedglutenfree #recipes #healthyeating #muffins #kidslunchbox #afternoontea #thermomix #thermomixaus #muffinrecipe #glutenfreelife #glutenfreerecipes

The weather has been fooling us into thinking it’s almost springtime Down Under☀️so I  figured it’s time to tidy up my wardrobe. I just love the feeling of a neatly tidied wardrobe. Whilst I wasn’t able to place these upright in #konmari style, I colour coordinated the jumpers to make selection easy and it’s way neater too  #konmarimethod #wardrobe #closetorganization #notyetspring #closetgoals #colourcoordinated #foldingclothes #tidy #walkinwardrobe #jumpers #sweaterseason #konmarilife #gettingorganized
I just listened to @ingridfetell TED talk about joy and I was inspired to make these pumpkin flowers instead of the just chopping them up like usual. Hoping this will bring much joy to my vegetable hating daughter and help motivate her to try them. 🎃  #wherejoyhidesandhowtofindit #pumpkin #vegetables #fussykid #colour #tedtalks #healthyeating #cleaneating
Flavour bombs to the rescue! I’m not sure what the collective name these items I prepped earlier this week (hummus, slow roasted tomatoes, caramelised onions, moxarella) but together they took my cos lettuce wrap from zero to hero in flavour. It really is worth the time prepping them, and topped them with a felafel and voila- a average looking but flavourful meal in seconds.  #veganmeals #fridgeleftovers #foodpreppaysoff #lettucewrap #felafel #glutenfreelife #condiments #nofussfood #veganeats #flavourbomb #
