NEW YOUTUBE CHANNEL!!!!! + How to Make Almond Butter

Hey guys! I have some exciting news – I STARTED A YOUTUBE CHANNEL!!! Even though I love performing and public speaking, this moment has taken me over a year to build up the courage to do! Its something I’ve always wanted to do but put it off because I was scared about the thought of putting my WHOLE SELF out for the world to see. But since I made my first video I enjoyed editing and filming so much, I’ve decided to create a channel to upload more videos. I plan on doing a mixture of videos including adventure, Q & A’s, recipes, story telling, travel, lifestyle etc so I chose a name that represents them all – LIFE AS KAELLI  – I cant wait to learn more about vlogging, connecting with other youtubers and give you another media source which is fun and not wordy! I’m THAT excited I want to share with you my FIRST EVER VIDEO demonstrating how to make my coconut/ chia and almond butter recipe I posted a few weeks …

Grain / Dairy / Gluten Free Tortilla (Wrap)

So it was just one of those mornings again following the same routine I can’t get myself out of…. Waking up on communication from my bowels to my brain letting me know it was time for the natural processes to take place (tmi put nicely?…..)… to checking my Instagram feed of bright, beautiful salivating breakfast eats… to then feeling an urgent need to get into the kitchen and cook something to eat. Usually I take my time pondering on what I really feel like, but today, I had little to no time to make a mess because I have some serious study (like… learning herbs in latin) to get done before my Herbal Medicine exam tomorrow afternoon – I’m in freak out mode! Ugh! So something quick, easy and rather strange it was – a chicken and avocado omelette inside a Grain / Dairy / Gluten Free Tortilla (Wrap) Yep, INSIDE. It’s a flavour party for my taste buds. Mmmmmmmm HAHAHA Makes: 4 large tortillas or 8 small ones for tacos          Time: less than 10 …

Easy Paleo Nut and Seed Bread/Loaf

Giving up grains is quite foreign to me. I never really associated grains to be inflammatory or contribute to my poor digestion. Whilst spending 6 weeks overseas in the UK, all I ate was gluten, lactose/dairy, spuds and more gluten, but never really felt the effects, despite being intolerant. I had probiotics with me which were prescribed by a Naturopath to help adapt to the change in food processing and help me enjoy my first time abroad without feeling too sluggish. I had an absolute ball whilst over there but, boy oh boy, when I returned back and my adrenaline stopped pumping, THATS when the after effects started to set in – the bloating, the brain fog, the disturbed sleep, the lethargy, lack of motivation – all very similar symptoms I was incurring over the span of 3 years, trying to find what style of eating worked best for me. It was this time I really wanted to feel and look healthy again. I wanted to wake up with more energy, feel good from the …

100% Paleo Green Smoothie

Its almost Friday (YAY) but before tomorrow comes along I have a big day in clinic following up with and seeing new clients to get through! So to keep me on my feet I’m pulling my (dusty) blender out and blitzing up a mix of goodness. This one is 100% Paleo so there is NO fruit, dairy, gluten or added sugar…. but PLENTY of healthy FAT! By eating FAT you are NOT going to get fat! Fat is needed within your diet to help regulate and balance your sex hormones (oestrogen, progesterone, testosterone), improve concentration, memory, energy, helps the body use essential vitamins, protects your organs from injury (acts as a protective cushion) and most importantly, provides the structural components of myelin, the sheath surround each nerve fibre in the brain, to deliver messages faster! So eat all those avocados! because FAT IS YOUR FRIEND!   Naturally, K IG: @itswholesomekay    FB: /WholesomeKay

Almond & Chia Butter

Ever since I have removed grains and legumes from my diet on experiment to identify what foods trigger my horrible digestive issues such as bloating and flatulence, I have been missing my homemade no salt peanut butter….. a lot! Wait, whaaaaaaat?. Peanuts? A grain? A legume? Yep peanuts aren’t actually a nut…. they are  apart of the Fabaceae/Leguminosae family, which naturally classifies them as a legume (edible seeds inside a pod) because they grow underground, unlike almonds and walnuts, for example, which are grown on a tree. Interesting fact, I know! BUT whats so “wrong” with them? Why can they be an irritant? Like grains, legumes contain something called phytic acid or phytates. These somewhat nasties bind to nutrients within food (especially essential minerals iron, zinc and magnesium) and stop them from becoming absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, or digestive tract in less fancier words. Similarly, lectins act the same way. Lectins are proteins found in most foods and in the body,  damage the intestinal wall, contributing to possible gut related symptoms and conditions such as …

Carrot and Walnut Cake

“Whats up doc” What do you do when you have way too many carrots on hand? (Besides eating them all) Make a divine loaf of bugs bunny approved carrot cake. Carrots are a great ingredient to add to your cakes, desserts, breakfast, dinner because they are one of the richest sources of Vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin that is great for your vision and helping to boost your immune system. It is also an antioxidant which can help protect against inflammation and oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Carrots are rich in fibre, low in calories and available all year round.  Icing- I personally don’t think icing is needed because it is already sweet enough with the medjool dates, but incase you like it the traditional way: Dairy Free Icing: whip 1 cup of coconut cream until thick, add 1 teaspoon of carrot gratings with a dash of cinnamon High protein icing:  mix 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 tablespoon almond milk, ½ cup greek yoghurt, 1 tsp vanilla extract. Of course, with allergies and …

Lemon and Gingerbread Men

Christmas day is all about sharing the good stuff (aka food, of course) with your family and friends so I thought why not do some myself, and share recipes to inspire you this Christmas! They are simple, easy and quick to make and are perfect for last minute ideas or disastrous  re-makes. (let’s be honest, we have ALL been there!) The recipes come from people who have inspired me along the way and have a similar philosophy of me in nourishing the body with wholesome healthy, fresh foods.
