Smoked Salmon & Sweet Potato Hash Browns

Breakfast can be a bit of a dirty word on the Paleo diet, but, add in the additional restrictions of following the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol with no eggs, nuts, tomatoes etc and then, well, that Intermittent Fasting to skip breakfast can look a whole lot more attractive (and is what I tend to do in […]

Autoimmune Coconut Macaroons

Since going paleo, if there is one thing that has really made a difference, it has been coconut. Coconut milk curries, virgin coconut oil for frying, coconut flour for baking and desiccated coconut for, well, for wherever the heck I can work it in. Also, when you factor in the additional restrictions from the Paleo autoimmune protocol […]

Diet and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) – A Letter to the BBC

Earlier today it was announced in the news that Jack Osbourne has Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Jack is the son of our own Ozzy Osbourne who was born and lived a few short miles from where we live in Birmingham, UK so whilst Jack comes from the US this story kind of feels close to home. […]

Ultimate Coconut Macaroons Recipe (Paleo)

I love Coconut Macaroons, said it, got it off my chest. But, being into a super healthy, clean eating lifestyle the excess sugar and rancid vegetable oils in the otherwise delicious shop bought macaroons had me wanting to make my own.

Up until quite recently I thought it […]

This weeks post workout meal was a completely new recipe for me so it was a bit of a risk to cook and document it for the blog at the first attempt, the fact is it sounded so interesting that I just had to give it a try. The star of the show is coconut […]

Post workout meal 19-05-2012

I usually exercise 3 times a week & I really look forward to my post workout meals – there’s something really satisfying about enjoying a good meal after some hard training. The meal I look forward to the most is the one after my only morning workout, which is on a Saturday, as I usually […]
