Gluten Free Waffles

I highly recommend these amazing waffles to people who are not gluten intolerant. These waffles are as delicious as if they were baked with 'real' flour if not better! You can enjoy this gluten free recipe every Saturday morning! You can use any gluten free flour for this recipe, just make sure that the quantities ad up. If you are using gluten free flour without any binding ingredients a teaspoon of xantam gum helps to hold the flours together. It works in the same way as a gluten does. This is particularly useful if your waffle irons are a little older and the batter sticks to it. If the batter is little firmer (by using the xantam gum) you'll find the waffles come off easier. I also find that I make a bigger batch than I need and then I ...

Easy snacks for mums on the go

You know what it's like…as a mum you are always on the go! Taking the kids to school in the morning, rushing to work and then back to do the pick up followed by an evening filled with getting the dinner ready, helping with children's school homework and lots of other house chores. And whilst we are very good at making sure that our children have the best nutritious food, how often do you find yourself just snacking on leftovers and skipping meals, because you are too busy? Or snacking on a chocolate snack bar, because that's the easiest thing to pick up in the corner shop on the way to work? But running on empty or on the wrong type of 'fuel' is never good in the long run. With a little bit of planning, you can prepare healthy snacks ...

Instant Pot Vegetable Rice Recipe

I love eating rice and cook it often to accompany our main dishes, but I always end up with either boiled over pot, burned bottom of my pot or rice that's quite not done. The only time when I get it just about right is if I stand next to the boiling rice pot, constantly watching it to make sure it's not overboiling or burning! I mentioned this to my friend, who was first staring at me in disbelieve and then suggested to check out 'instant pot', which as she explained it's like a supercharged pressure cooker only much quicker and safer to use. Since watching rice to boil is not exactly a fun way to spend your evenings, I thought I'd give it a try! I borrowed my friend's instant pot, because I wanted to try it before I bought my own. ...

Is processed food really bad for your health?

Quality control for processed foods. Dairy product research A couple of years ago, I became more aware of how processed food was affecting my health. I was always tired, often felt hungry even after I've eaten and I was putting on weight. I started to work with a nutritionist, who pointed out that I was relying on supermarket ready meals a little bit too much. She was right; ever since I started to work for myself, I found I had less and less time to cook properly, and it was just easy to buy ready-made food and stick it in the microwave. She recommended I learn more about food additives and try to eliminate them as much as I can from my diet. I knew that processed food is not particularly good for you, but I didn't realise how ...
