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!

pea crackerrrrrsssss

For realsies, these are one of my favourite nibbles. I just love that green pea flavour! These ones are so savoury and yummy, too. I've made them with just salt and pepper, and those are amazing, no joke.

Crackers are so easy to make at home. The secret is to score them before baking, and if they don't end up crisp enough, dehydrate them extra after you finish baking on a heat that is too low to brown them more but will drive out the moisture.

Totally fine for school, totally tasty for kids.

equipment needed:
2 silicone mats or baking parchment
2 baking sheets
rolling pin
mixing bowl
mixing spoon
measuring cups
measuring spoons


2 cups pea flour
1/2 cup tapioca starch

1 tbsp mesquite

1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup water (a couple tbsp more)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

salt to sprinkle on top (optional)


preheat the oven to 345

1. combine dry ingredients, then work the coconut oil in using a fork
2. add water and vinegar and mix into dough
3. divide the dough into two pieces
4. roll out each piece onto a silicone baking mat, by covering the dough with a piece of parchment,
5. score into cracker shapes, and sprinkle with salt
6.bake at 345 for 20 minutes
