Not only is it ‘Tis the season for Christmas, but the change in weather also means an influx of colds and flu, sneezing, snivels, and lots of it. It definitely means the need for a lot of warming soups and stews, and there isn’t one more perfect to make than Grandmom’s Chicken Soup.

Chicken Bone Broth by Author

An Instant Pot is my busy mom kitchen go-to. I throw everything in it and I have a warming bone broth in 90 mins. This one truly has much more flavour than your standard bone broth and you can have it warmed in a mug, or add it to any recipe. Keep extra in the fridge or freezer!

Buckwheat & Oat Fluffy Pancakes (GF) by Author

As a childhood favourite, and a weekend staple in my own household, I am known to my children as the #pancakemixologist… Forever testing out new flours, combos and levels of fluffiness on my twins. Needless to say, they are a brutally honest set of twins but this recipe passed with flying colours. As a time-sensitive parent, I love this all-in-one Vitamix blitz up. And if you're tempted to skip the apple cider vinegar, DON’T… it’s the key to going from 0 to 60 on the fluffiness scale.

Cherry Berry Chocolate Anti-Stress Smoothie by

De-stress yourself with a quick and easy smoothie blend. Fortified with 6 stress-busting foods, this berry blend will boost your mood and help to calm your cortisol levels in no time. Walnuts (1) & cherries (2) work to help improve mood thanks to their high levels of tryptophan, serotonin, and melatonin; cherries help to reduce anxiety, but also help lower cortisol levels along with linseeds (3) which can lower blood pressure during mental stress, pomegranate juice (4) and green leafy veg (5). Blueberries, especially the wild variety (6) vs conventionally grown, help to improve neurological health & reduce any depressed feelings due to their high levels of polyphenolic compounds, most prominently anthocyanins, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects (7).

Fig, Ginger & Honey Switchel by

A Healthy Tonic-tail Mocktail

Switchel originates from the Caribbean but seems to have boosted its popularity by way of the States (enter Vermont Maple Syrup). Easier & quicker to make than Kombucha, which requires a scoby starter, this (good) bad-boy can be made in large batches & has the ability to take you from day to evening wear. There’s no end to what you can add to it to jazz it up, & let’s face it – a dash of gin, whiskey, bourbon or bubbles will satisfy even the most hard-core party guests.

Roasted Red Velvet Soup by

A loving combination of veg & spices that also warms the heart! I actually came up with this recipe as I always seem to have a load of leftover veg in the fridge to use up. This is great as a meal on it’s own, or as a starter for your special Valentine’s dinner. Using a homemade organic chicken bone broth is an excellent way to help support & soothe your entire digestive system, including your immune system.

Coconut Milk Pannacotta with Cardamom, Honey & Vanilla (Vegan/DF/Refined SF/GF) by

As many people are trying to go dairy free these days & looking for options on the menu, it was fun to experiment with Martin & Lenka from The Hurstwood in their kitchens recently. It took a few tries to get it just right, but the cardamom flavour goes so well with my fermented strawberry sauce, or even a rhubarb compote as they are just coming into season! These can be poured into pretty glassware for serving, or even in a mould for plating – be sure to use coconut oil in your moulds before adding the pannacotta!

Pancake LOVE… Les Galettes de Sarrasin (GF) by

True French crepes wouldn’t be pancakes with anything less than the power of buckwheat. Naturally gluten free, this grain is high in magnesium, fibre, protein and the antioxidant quercetin. Buckwheat gives pancakes another dimension and pairs well with the goat’s cheese, strawberries, walnuts, and dark chocolate as I did here. There are endless ideas for fillings, both savoury and (unrefined) sweetness!
