Pizza or frittata? This is another cracking lunch that’s perfect for #mealprep, packed with veggies and deliciousness. You can switch up the veggies depending on what you have in the fridge - I used leftover butternut squash (cooked in the microwave, finished on the hob - recipe 2 posts back) and broccoli, and threw in some extra mushrooms and tomatoes.
INGREDIENTS (makes 2 portions)
2 spring onions
Left over veg
4 whole eggs
100g egg whites
Drop of milk
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
Small handful fresh coriander (or 1/2 tsp dried)
1. Slice your veggies and cook them in a large frying pan in a drop of oil on a medium heat, leaving out tomatoes and at the mo and any other pre cooked veg.
2. Meanwhile whisk together the eggs and add the herbs, spices and seasoning. Add to the pan once the veggies have softened and top with your other cooked veggies.
3. Cover the pan with a lid/makeshift lid (a plate or tin foil works well) and cook on a low heat until the eggs have set, normally takes around 15-20 mins. Grate a little cheese over the top and allow to melt.
4. Take off the heat and leave to cool before boxing it up ready for lunch when you need it. I serve mine with a spinach and avo 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

Need some #meatfreemonday side dish ideas? How about a candida-friendly free-from tabbouleh? During my elimination diet I had to stay away from nightshade vegetables as well as grains so I've replaced the tomatoes with nutritious pomegranate seeds and bulgur wheat with hulled help seeds! It's fast and easy to make and super tasty👌🏼 Ingredients:
1 cup organic flat-leaf parsley
1 small onion
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
2 tbsp hulled organic hemp seeds
2 tbsp organic cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp organic lemon juice
1/2 tsp himalayan salt
pinch of ground cumin
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of all spice
pinch of ground black pepper
Finely chop the parsley and onion. Tip: use a sharp knife for the salad to not get too soggy.
Place the parsley, onion, pomegranate seeds and hemp seeds in a bowl.
Combine the dressing ingredients and mix well.
Add the dressing to the bowl and mix well. Serve!

I have been overwhelmed by the amount of restaurants in Amsterdam that serve gluten free food and their understanding of dietary requirements (especially as I can’t speak a word of Dutch!!). If anyone is unsure of coming to this city, I would like to set your mind at ease
Many people had recommended @bagelsbeans to me before I left the UK and by a lovely coincidence there was one across the road from our hotel. Yesterday morning we went over for breakfast before our visit to the @vangoghmuseum .
Bagels and Beans offer gluten free bagels, which are delicious. They actually have a really interesting menu, including a bug bagel (yes this includes, crickets!!)
I decided to go for their breakfast platter with a gf bagel and an almond milk flat white. The breakfast platter includes cream cheese, smoked salmon, cheese, strawberry jam, chocolate sprinkles and a yoghurt nut mix. So you can mix up for your breakfast completely, sweet and savoury.
I’m feeling sugary this morning! Throwback to our trip to Brighton the other week where we found @blackmochabrighton - the most amazing selection of gluten free and vegan cakes- this lemon and raspberry one was absolutely divine. And their hot chocolate selections were to die for. Got the recommendation from a @beckyexcell article, thanks Becky!!! You made our trip so much better and easier!!!! #recommendation#glutenfreetravel#glutenfree
Courgette and carrot fritters
We made the most of our allotment haul last week with these courgette and carrot fritters.
It was so much fun digging up spuds and twisting off courgettes. We are city slickers and we have fairly limited access to such beautiful home grown veg. It was a delight to be able to show my daughter that courgettes aren't all uniform and that they don't arrive dressed in cellophane jackets!
Spriralize 1 yellow courgette, 1 green courgette and 1 carrot. Next create a batter by combining 50 grams of gram flour (chickpea flour) 70 millilitres of water, 1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder and a squeeze of lemon. Lightly toss the spiralized vegetable in the batter.
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan and place dollops of the mixture in. This can be done in batches. (For extra neat fritters you can use a metal ring, and dollop a spoonful of the mixture in the centre)
Fry until golden on one side and then flip. Once both sides are cooked, remove fritters from the pan and place on some kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil. #foodallergies#kidsfood#toddlerrecipes#toddlerfood#kids#wheatfree#eggfree#dairyfree#glutenfree#glutenfreekids#parenting#babies#freefrom#fritters#courgette#allotment
