So, as I mentioned last week, Saturday was the MINDD Foundation’s ‘Food is Medicine’ seminar. I tootled off to attend (and dragged LM along for the ride. Bless him!)
I have the body of an eighteen year old. I keep it in the fridge. (Spike Milligan)
One of my favourite presenters was Teresa Cutter, of the Healthy Chef fame. I’ve been a fan of hers for quite some time, but seeing her in action was great. She made whipping up a fresh pesto in no time look insanely easy, and her presentation style was wonderfully warm and engaging.
And, while the title of this post is a wee bit of a misnomer (to the best of my knowledge, Teresa doesn’t actually blog, but she does have a regular newsletter), there are oodles of fab’ and healthy recipes to check out on her website (here).
After seeing the talented Teresa in action, I was motivated to get into the kitchen today. As a result, as I write this, I’ve got an awful lot of nuts currently activating away in preparation for nut milk and a batch of the BEST grain free granola ever (a.k.a. Nutola) AND, I’ve made a loaf of Teresa’s pumpkin bread.
Now, I’m not going to tell you that this pumpkin bread recipe beats a fresh sourdough from Iggy’s… BUT, if (like me) you’re unable to eat gluten or you’re grain-free, this pumpkin-y tasting loaf ain’t half bad – especially if you are missing your bread.
It received LM’s tick of approval, too.
If you’d like the recipe to the Healthy Chef pumpkin bred, you can find it at Teresa Cutter’s website (here). Teresa also demonstrated her raw chocolate cake, which she made from her chocolate cupcake base. It looked divine but I don’t need another excuse to eat chocolate, so I’m saving that one for a special occasion…
