Grain Free Raspberry Ripple Cake GF SCD

Did you know that the raspberries come in four different colours, red, purple, black and gold? The most fragile of all berries, raspberries are members of the Rose family. Tart yet sweet, raspberries are rich in antioxidants, in fact they provide us with one of the best sources of cancer protecting ellagic acid. Abundant in vitamins and minerals, the humble raspberry is also an excellent source of the anti-tumour agentVitamin B17 or laetrile. So many great reasons to include them in your diet!

Golden Courgette Pasta GF SCD

Though very similar to the last zucchini noodle recipe I posted, this was much quicker to put together and surprisingly tasty and the warm golden colour looked lovely on the plate!
