About Me

My photo
Three and a half years ago I became vegetarian. Three and a half weeks ago, anticipating a certain health diagnosis at any time, I also gave up all added sugar in my diet. My mother is of a certain generation and, although a very good cook, struggles to know what to offer guests with specific dietary restrictions. She once had a vegetarian and a coeliac for dinner at the same time, and nearly lost her reason! So, the idea for this blog was born. Every recipe that features here will be vegan (and, obviously, vegetarian), gluten free, sugar free, lactose and dairy free, and suitable for people on a low sodium diet. That's right, you read that correctly. Even if you have guests with each of these restrictions coming to the same meal, everything here is safe for them. And, before you expect weird and wonderful ingredients to make an appearance, everything I'm using can be bought in larger branches of all major supermarkets - you don't even need to visit health food stores. Try the recipes and tell me what you think!

The Fruits of Your Labours

Happy Wednesday everyone. :)

Today's challenge was for recipes relating to fruit.  One of the great troopers of #tweettreat, and a former rockstar, promptly complained that she'd already given me most of her fruit recipes, then proceeded to churn out  ten more!  For that reason alone she should be today's rockstar; thankfully, her recipes are also brilliant, so it was a no-brainer (useful when it's me we're talking about).

So, today's winning recipe is this:

"A refreshing summer mocktail: half apple juice, half tonic water, big slice lime, big sprig fresh mint, lots of ice."

And once again, today's rockstar is @helen_kara! I will never listen to her again when she says she's out of ideas. ;)

Tomorrow's challenge is one that has been suggested by another regular #tweettreat trooper, @CountryLets.  She says "How about recipes for poultry? I always end up doing the same boring things, nice to have new ideas."

Poultry is therefore your challenge for tomorrow! Remember I'm still taking all recipes, of all sorts, all the time. Our total is now 720!

See you all tomorrow. :)
