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 …

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 …

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.

Crispy Sweet Potato Fries

I want to eat nothing but sweet potato chips for the rest of my life. I once thought sweet potatoes were ew but then i discovered sweet potato brownies and sweet potato gnocchi and baked sweet potato and pretty much feel in love after that. One sweet potato at a time. Per 100g they provide an impressive source of: iron – red blood cell production and strengthens immunity, cellular energy magnesium – hormone and neuron communication, cramping and muscle relief, decreases stress levels calcium – essential for all body functions – digestion, skeletal strength and support, muscle contraction and relaxation, cardio health etc vitamin c – immune health, supports collagen growth for healthy skin potassium – electrolyte balance, heart beat regulation, muscular health fibre – regular bowel movements, cleansing of the digestive tract, cholesterol maintenance vitamin a – healthy eyesight, skin, strong joints, immune function, fertility (egg reproduction) AND  the natural sugars found in the potato are slowly released into the bloodstream, helping to ensure a balanced and regular source of energy, without the insulin …

Healthy Halloween Snack Ideas

What exactly is Halloween and what does it stand for? The exact thoughts of an Australian blogger who follows American bloggers. But that doesn’t matter because Halloween is one freakin’ crazy and fun night. Especially when those kids continuously visit your house in different costumes (and NO COSTUMES? Whats with that?) yelling trick or treat, expecting you to treat them with a bucket full of candy and chocolate each time – that shiz is cute. Or when you dress up as whatever you like and spread fake blood and zippers and webs all over your body without anybody judging you – THE best! But as much as I am all for the tradition of Halloween and giving candy, I also love to keep it healthy too (summer is less than 2 months away guysssss) Well for party celebrations anyway, even though I once tried ‘treating’ kids with a scary mandarin and they said with a frown on their face: “I don’t want that. I want lollies”. Mmmhmm, it was very embarrassing. #fail So I thought …
