Guest Post Recipe

SuperBread (yeast and gluten free) – loosely based on the bread found in “Deliciously Ella” cookbook

Makes one loaf
500ml (2 cups) of cold water
375ml (1 and a 1/2 cups) of pumpkin seeds
100g (1 cup) gluten free flour, or rice flour
100g (1 cup) almonds
50g (1 cup) sunflower seeds
3 heaped tablespoons of psyllium husk powder*
2 tablespoons of dried mixed herbs (I use rosemary from the pot used at my wedding ceremony!)
salt and pepper to taste
* I bought mine online but most health food shops stock it. It’s the ingredient that binds the others together, so sadly there’s no substitute.
1. Blend the almonds and half the pumpkin seeds in a food processor until a smooth flour forms. 2. Tip this flour into a bowl and stir in the remaining pumpkin seeds, the flour, sunflower seeds, psyllium powder, dried herbs and salt.
3.Stir the mix well before gradually pouring in the water.
4. Let the mixture sit for an hour or so to let it fully absorb all the water and firm up. While this is happening, heat the oven to 180C.
5. Grease a tin with coconut oil or olive oil
6. Tip the mixture into the tin and level it out
7. Place the tin in the oven and bake for between 40-60 minutes.
8 It’s done when the top is browning and a skewer comes out clean when you insert it into the middle of the loaf.

It’s great fresh or toasted, and works brilliantly with either sweet toppings or savoury with cheese and chutney. You can also freeze slices to have ready access to what I’m sure will become your favourite bread


Hungry for Love by Lucy Beresford

Jax is about to cancel her wedding to Jonty. On the day. By text. A scrumptious celebration of survival for anyone who's longed for love or felt unworthy of it, Hungry for Love will show you the importance of self-respect and that love can be found where you least expect it.

Hey! Here's my review.

This is Jax's story, told in third person through a whole cast of character's. The beginning had me intrigued to find out why the wedding was being called off and the author kept me engaged by holding off on telling me straight away. 

The story has the fun light feeling of chick lit while delving into deeper topics such as eating disorders and strained family relationships, topping it all off with some foodie sex. I had trouble at times keeping track of whose perspective the story was being told from but i liked the way it was all wrapped up at the end.

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
