After work last week I went into woolworths (or safeaway) looking for psyllium husk so I could make a huge batch of flaxseed and nut crackers and couldn’t find them, so I checked out their new-to-store basket of organic macro foods and found a packet of Raw Buckwheat.

If you have lived or visited Melbourne, Australia you would know how the weather is (a big 4 seasonal ball of shitty and dress ups) and today is no different because currently, it is pouring down and my brand new (!!) socks are saturated and soggy! Ugh, God dahm it, I just put them on too!

But, if its possible to love ONE thing about bipolar weather, it’s the opportunity to always enjoy warm, creamy hot food – like a pot of all-year-round pumpkin soup, gluten-free carrot and walnut cake, to die for crispy sweet potato fries, or a stack of gluten-free blueberry pancakes.

This morning I managed to just escape the rain and cold to take a photo of Quin-pear Porridge, which I devoured in under a minute, so thank god the few I got turned out okay! This one is for my GLUTEN FREE and DAIRY FREE lovers….
