PORK & SWEET POTATO HASH

Long time since we posted something, 321ers. Howzit? It’s getting a bit cooler here in Perth. Winter is definitely coming (Yeah, a Game of Thrones reference. Sue me.) so I’ve been busy cooking up cold weather foods like slow-cooked split pea soup, almond-cashew butter for toast and smoothies and stocking the fridge for the week…

ALMOND BUTTER

Versatile, Paleo and super easy to make. Used sparingly (should limit nuts to a handful a day), nut butters are a great high protein product to spread on your ‘bread’, fruit or veggies, or to add a spoonful to your smoothies or juice mixes. It also forms the basis of lots of Paleo biscuits I…

PUMPKIN CUSTARD TARTS WITH GINGERBREAD CRUST

Smooth-as-silk pumpkin custard, flavoured with egg nog and a hit of salty bacon, encased in a sweet gingerbread crust. And it fits into our Paleo requirements of low-processed food and high nutrition. Australian’s think pumpkin is a savoury vegetable (which it kinda is), not the sweet dessert Americans have turned it into. Saying that, these…
