If, like me you are always in a hurry, whip up a batch of these festive allergy friendly cakes in 5 minutes like I did with my three year old yesterday, 30 minutes before the school pick up. Bung in the oven for 15-20 minutes and then pick your poison for the icing. They are…

A Simpler, Travel-Friendly Potato Bread: For Vegans and the Food Sensitive

WOAH! I’ve been experimenting this week with some really cool and yummy yeast-free-but-not-flat-breads, which I will blog about as soon as I can start chewing again: My Incognito Braces have just been placed on my upper teeth and I can’t speak let alone eat.

Food Intolerance and Sport: Hydration and Nutrition For A Food Intolerant Athlete

Before my food intolerances were diagnosed, I was your typical athlete, guzzling litres of coloured, flavoured pre, post and during sport energy and electrolyte drinks and scoffing packet upon packet of energy gels and bars.

My Name’s Naomi, and I’m… a Food Intolerant Athlete.” Once this is confessed…

How we Make “Homemade” Medicine (Failsafers/Allergic/Intolerant etc)

So being the mum of two highly food intolerant girls has not only turned me into a magician cook (or ‘cooker’ as my daughter would say) in that I can cook ten different meals with the same five raw ingredients, but it has also turned me into an Apothecary Extraordinaire. Just want to re-iterate my…

A Simple Failsafe Dinner: Friendly Food for Super Responders

Sometimes having food intolerant children makes me look like an AWESOME mum.
