Fish cakes, patties or burgers is a great way to get more of nutritious fish (and seafood) into your diet. It’s also a cost effective way of eating fish as you’re mixing it up with other starchy, cheaper ingredients such as vegetables. Adding some exciting flavours and spices means that even the fussiest eaters can enjoy a little more fish. [Read more…]

Turmeric and Cumin Spiced Paneer

Paneer is a fresh cheese that is super easy to make and requires no aging or culturing.  It is made simply using full fat milk and vinegar (you can also use lemon juice instead of the vinegar) – a basic chemical reaction happens when the acid (vinegar or lemon juice) is tipped into the milk and causes the casein to ‘clump’ together to form the paneer.

It is typically used in Indian cuisine and so it pairs wonderfully to spices such as turmeric and cumin, which I have used in this recipe.  It has a very mild flavour and is crumbly in texture.  It will not melt and holds its shape, so it is great for use in various vegetarian dishes from soups to curries.

It is still of course dairy, so if you are sensitive to dairy – particularly casein, maybe give this recipe a miss :)

DIY Beauty – All Natural Homemade Deodorant

natural-DIY-deodorant-recipe-homemade

There are many harmful ingredients in commercial deodorants and as the demand for natural alternatives rises, we start to see more friendly versions such as an aluminium free deodorant or a paraben free deodorant on the market. I have tried just about every natural deodorant on the market, some of which work pretty well and some that leave a lot to be desired. However, even with some of the chemicals removed, most commercial products still contain unpleasant nasties.
