Welcome to my crazy world of real food cooking ...

Eat Food. Not too much. Mostly Plants. -- Michael Pollan

I wish I could take credit for that because I think it sums up how we should eat. Simply -- eat stuff that really is food, instead of stuff that is food like substance. The supermarket is almost entirely food-like-substances, and, my friends, you should probably never ever eat them.

Fortunately, there is a world of deliciousness out there, and it can all be had in a way that not only doesn't harm your health, but in a way that benefits you hugely.

I think it's important to eat stuff that satisfies you, that keeps your blood sugar stable, and that gives you stuff your body really needs to run optimally.

But baby, it's gotta taste good.

I really like getting experimental in the kitchen. I love cooking, I love layering flavours, and I love coming up with really super yummy food. I have very strong opinions about what constitutes food, and there are a lot of things I won't touch in the kitchen. Bottom line? Pretty much everything I make is ridiculously good for you even if it tastes decadent. Although there are occasional big fat cheats ... but even those stick to real food, my friends.

For food that is usual gluten free, usually free of cane sugar, usually super low on the glycemic index, full of protein, fiber, flavour, and excellent energy, join me and Alice down the rabbit hole.

Every recipe on this blog is my own original effort and idea, so please pass 'em on, giving credit where credit is due.

Many thanks, and come back often. I'm really glad you are here!

don't fear the sacrificial pancake

Zen and the art of pancake making.
1. Allow the pancake time to achieve greatness.
2. Share the pancakes with people you love.
3. Do not fear the sacrificial pancake.


1 1/2 cups water
4 eggs
1/2 tsp sea salt
black pepper

1 cup almond flour
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup coconut flour

1 cup finely sliced green onion


1. whisk together water, eggs, salt, and pepper
2. add the almond flour and chia seeds
3. add baking soda
4a. add coconut flour
4b. add green onion
5. allow the batter to sit for at least 20 minutes
6. heat up your pan/ griddle/skillet etc after liberally coating with coconut oil
7. when the pan is up to temperature, scoop 1/4 cup of batter on to it, and tilt around and around to spread batter
8. set the timer for 1 or 2 minutes
9. flip with a spatula when the pancake is ready, and set the timer again for 1 or 2 minutes
10. remove the pancake to a plate and repeat until all the batter is gone.
11. keep the finished pancakes warm in the oven as you work.
12. do not fear the sacrificial pancake
13. think of the first person you smiled at today ...

Serve with the green onion pancake dipping sauce or a little tamari.


Sometimes I like to add things like a little sesame oil and a pinch of chili powder just to liven things up.
