I used to follow a liberal version of the paleo diet, and it was very successful for some time. But I got sick of carb-shaming and I don’t think any diet that excludes anything is one I can get on board with. Everything in moderation […]

Skinny Smoked Salmon Salad

Skinny Smoked Salmon Salad

I don’t know if you can relate, but I have to wear a bathing suit in a few short months. It’s bad enough that my skin is winter-pale and scaly but having a few kilograms extra of it laying about isn’t helping. I have 3 […]

Green Lentil Dhal

Green Lentil Dhal

When you make and eat food like this, you realise why the western world is getting fatter and hungrier. Dhals are ugly, they’re really easy and cheap to make and they are nutritious and filling. Not much room for profit here is there? When you […]

Bowl Food

Bowl Food

Bliss bowls, Buddha bowls, poke bowl or just plain ‘bowl food’. I’ve been thinking about it for some time, way before it was on the menu at Harry’s wedding. I only just found about that out. Over in the United States, bowl food has been […]

Oatcakes

Oatcakes

This post has been the most clicked-on photo from my Feeding Time Blog Pinterest board GREATEST HITS¬† – so I thought I’d bring it to the front page of the blog. The recipe comes from The Steading cafe in Keith, Scotland where I tried their […]

Mango Kachumba

Like a fool, I planned regular meals for this week, so as a result I spend each evening roasting in my kitchen which catches the burning rays of hell from the late afternoon sun. I sweltered at the hob making fish curry last night and […]

Tabouleh

Tabouleh

When I make Maria Elia’s spiced chicken, I serve it with pita or naan, fresh from a kebab shop if I can, hummus – sometimes homemade, and tabouleh – always home made. I’ve never had good take-away tabouleh and I think it’s because it sits […]

Paleo Chicken Salad

Paleo Chicken Salad

A while ago I posted a recipe I love. It’s an Asian flavoured chicken and noodle salad. I want to re-post this recipe, but without the noodles, to show how easy it is to remove the grain component of a recipe, without losing flavour or […]

Lemon Dhal

Lemon Dhal

I don’t know how it is with you at approximately first day back to work in early January, but for me, it feels like a long goodbye to the things that I love the most like Blackbomber Cheddar, Christmas lights, Neal’s Yard Dairy Stichelton and […]
