Shameful that this has taken me so long to put up! Sorry folks but it's here now!
As you might be noticing I like free form recipes so this follows the theme- at least I'm consistant.
1-2 kg of organic chicken bones- any bones are fine really but weight may vary
1 onion at least
lots of garlic
as many herbs as you fancy
consider tumeric- great for gut health and inflammation generally
2 or more carrots
2 or more sticks of celery
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar (this helps break down nutrients in the bone)
water to cover
I throw it all in the slow cooker but you could theoretically do it in a pressure cooker or on the stove.
24 hours is best but sometimes I'm in a hurry and 12hrs is all I've got!
Any time you need stock for soup use this. Great for gravy and even chicken noodle soup or just a cup of goodness. Yum!
These work pretty well for cakes and biscuits. I haven't done bread but I don't think they would work out as a dough. Maybe a batter type cakey bread...have a go with some slices and cakes.
one cup of almond meal
1/2 cup of arrowroot
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup of tapioca starch
2 cups almond flour
1.5 cups of tapioca starch
2/3 cup of coconut flour
Which ever you chose just mix it all together well with a whisk or mechanical thing of choice and use as you would plain flour.
For self raising add 2tsp of baking powder (NOT baking soda- it's different)
before fermenting 24hrs
My favourite thing to do is potter about in the kitchen! Me and a million others haha! There's about a billion blogs out there on food so all I want to achieve here is a collection of usable recipes for my clients that are healthy and easy!
There was a time when I made all the very traditional foods from scratch.
These days I'm looking for the healthier, lighter options. I still occasionally have the traditional treats but I get it now! Even thought they were homemade from the best ingredients they were still treats.
Now my fridge is stocked with fermented foods, I'm more likely to be making a raw dessert than a cake and the freezer has frozen fruit at the ready to make luscious 'nice-cream' and sits alongside bone broth ready to add to soups and stews.
Fill yourself with good food and not only do you feel satisfied but there is no room for all the 'treats'.
Happy browsing and bon appetite!
