Paleo autoimmune protocol friendly herbs and spices

Chilli Free Spices and Seasoning’s

It’s always the things you never thought about that trip you up in life and it was that way for us with our first bash at the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol. We were already pretty rigid Paleo but we did eat a lot of nuts, seeds, tomatoes, peppers and aubergines. Most worrying was the amount of […]

Exercising as a Family – Caveman Style

With the ‘never a spare minute’ way we all seem to live nowadays it can be hard to find time for parents to go and do their own regular exercise several times a week. Equally, getting kids out and exercising is not always easy during summer holidays or breaks when you still have to work and […]

Fermented Vegetables Recipe – Homemade Probiotics

With the relentless barrage of advertising for yogurt drinks with ‘beneficial bacteria’ ‘gut friendly bacteria’ or simply ‘good bacteria’ it’s likely that most of us understand the benefit of getting some probiotic bacteria in our diets. The problem is, many of these yogurt drinks are not the natural or most healthy way to do this […]

Home made fermentation jars

Since starting the Paleo diet one of the things that has intrigued me the most is the importance of eating fermented foods. Up until starting Paleo I couldn’t tell you when the last time I ate something fermented was, sure alcohol is fermented – and most of us enjoy that every once in a while […]

Homemade beef burgers (grass fed of course) are a favourite of ours at home and McDaddy’s is on the way to replace McDonalds as a favourite for the kids (I just need to supply the burgers in a cute box and with an instantly forgettable toy and I think i’ll have that fiendish Ronald McDonald bested for […]

Better Paleo Flours – Autoimmune Friendly

When you first go Paleo, lots of the foods you used to eat are no longer available to you, and if you did a lot of baking this means many of the healthy, home cooked foods you used to prepare have to be taken off the menu. This is problematic, as in these busy lives […]
