In My Kitchen – July 2016

I’d love to introduce you to these new products that are In My Kitchen for July 2016. This is a food challenge is not on this month officially, but is usually coordinated by  The Orgasmic Chef .

imk-pics-peanut-butter

I love this smooth peanut butter by Pic’s. They use only Australian peanuts from Kingaroy and freshly roast them in Nelson, New Zealand. If your peanut butter is made from peanuts in another country than they may be sprayed with a toxic chemical mix, which is now thought to be a contributing factor in peanut allergies.

ink-bobs-brownies

I’m keen to try out Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free brownie mix. This American company has a great reputation for producing allergy and intolerance friendly food, including the hard to find gluten-free oats. (Oats in Australia are usually cross-contaminated with gluten containing grains).

imk-cashew-cheese

How insanely good is this cashew cheese? This jar of Peace, Love and Vegetables is a fantastic cheese substitute which doesn’t contain soy products or taste like rubber. It’s heavy on the garlic, but I adore it. In addition, it’s gluten free, organic, probiotic rich and vegan.

imk-paleo-superfood

This paleo living superfood cereal is packed with goodness. It’s made by Pura Veda a company that makes all natural, allergen friendly, Australian made plant-based products. It contains buckwheat, sunflower seeds, linseed, millet, pepitas, poppy seeds, chia seeds, amaranth and quinoa. It’s best served soaked first.

In My Kitchen – April 2016

I’d love to introduce you to these new products that are In My Kitchen for April 2016. This is a food challenge coordinated by  The Orgasmic Chef.

coconut-gold-oil

When you look to buy coconut oil look out for cold-pressed and organic on the label. Some oils are more coconuty than others, so if you don’t like the first one you taste try another one. Coconut oil is the best oil for all your cooking needs. This one is by Coconut Gold.

nordic-eggs

Great eggs which are genuinely free range and pasture fed on green grass. This means the eggs have a better proportion of good fats. By Walker Farm Foods near Maleny in Queensland.

dandy-chai

I have given up coffee (for a little while anyhow) and I am having Kintra Food‘s Dandy Chai. It is roasted dandelion root with spices. It tastes a bit like coffee, but not really. It’s the same as saying carob is like chocolate. It’s a nice taste and a change from tea.

weel-good-coconut-flour

I’ve enjoyed using coconut flour by Well and Good. There are heaps of recipes on their website if you need inspiration for your gluten-free cooking. You can buy quinoa flour, besan flour, sorghum flour, teff flour, millet flour, corn flour, brown rice flour and tapioca starch or potato starch. I want to try their chocolate mousse cake next!

In My Kitchen – February 2016

I’d love to introduce you to these new products that are In My Kitchen for February 2016. This is a food challenge coordinated by the intriguingly titled food blog The Orgasmic Chef.

imk-buckinis

First up is raw organic activated Buckinis made by one of my favourite companies Loving Earth. It contains buckwheat, nuts, berries, superfoods and other ingredients for a healthy breakfast.  The good thing is that it is gluten-free and grain-free. Buckwheat is not wheat but actually the seed of a fruit. The berry and cacao version is delicious and I can’t wait to try the other flavours.

imk-spearmint-tea

Another one of my favourite companies is Planet Organic with their range of organic herbal teas. Spearmint is nice with some raw unprocessed honey. I’m keen to try their cinnamon tea next which is good for balance blood sugar levels.

imk-chocolate-counter

Last up on my list of new products is The Chocolate Counter‘s Chocolate Brownie Crunch. It’s so delicious I’ll admit I ate the bar in one sitting. Surprisingly it’s lactose and gluten free with no added sugar. It’s sweetened with monk fruit juice.
