I had this post on another of my blogs… I guess I didn’t want to announce it to the whole world as I didn’t know what people would think… I know a lot of people will just think this is another fad diet but this is really working for me and over the next couple of posts you will see why… so here it is…
The title of this post sounds extreme right? Well it probably is but I am doing a little experiment.
Once again after starting this (being a health blog I started) blog I went back to my old More >
You may not be aware (although it’s hard to miss on Twitter at the moment) but Domino’s USA have released a YouTube video announcing a gluten free crust suitable for those with gluten sensitivity.
Now you will notice I said gluten sensitivity not celiac disease and that is because on the video they have a rather large disclaimer….
I have been reading the debate on Twitter over the last couple of days and finally watched the Domino’s video to make up my own mind.
Many people believe that this is just a money money ploy by Domino’s and they were stupid to make a More >
As with the spatchcock I received from Game Farm I wanted to make something simple with the Qual breast fillets I recieved from them. When you are cooking with such good quality meat it seems a shame to drown out it’s flavour with overpowering sauces. I therefore decided on the quail breast fillets with pasta, chilli, fresh herbs and olive oil recipe, once again from Game Farm’s website.
This dish was probably my favourite of all three that I cooked with Game Farm meat. Firstly it was easy to cook with as it was just the breast fillets but also because More >
With the spatchcock I received from Game Farm I decided to cook something reasonably simple and let the flavours of the bird come out. I therefore decided on the recipe from Game Farm’s website, spatchcock with white wine, lemon and rosemary.
The recipe was simple and quick to prepare and the flavours were delicious. Before receiving my package from Game Farm I had never considered cooking with any other bird except chicken (and turkey for Christmas). It was great to experiment with something new and I would love to cook with spatchcock again.

I have posted before about how the coeliac society’s in Australia and New Zealand note that oats should not be consumed by coeliacs without a biopsy before and after consumption (read about why here). However the Canadian Celiac Assocation state:
Clinical evidence confirms that consumption of pure, uncontaminated oats is safe in the amount of 1/2 – 3/4 cup per day for adults with celiac disease. Individuals with celiac disease who wish to add oats or oat products to their diet must ensure that the oats they are eating are free from gluten contamination.
They do note however that:

I have fond memories of pea and ham soup. My mum used to make it quite often when we were kids with a big ham bone and split green peas. The only complaint I can make is that whilst the ham slid off the bone there wasn’t enough of it for my liking.
Fast forward a few years and I was faced with a rather large hunk (for the lack of a better word) of ham in the fridge. I also had a bag of frozen peas and some green lentils so I decided to make a variation on my childhood pea More >
