This luxury Basil and Pine Nut Avocado Dip is a wonderful keto alternative to hummus. Pairs well with grain free crackers like these Keto Rosemary & Onion Crackers, as a dip for raw crudités, tossed through a crunchy salad or my favourite, smothered over scrambled eggs. The toasted pine nuts add a real buttery depth of flavour that will keep you coming back for more!

Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food. My food approach is all about awakening a carefree, happier, healthier you whilst reducing inflammation and toxins in the body.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. I love wholesome, natural food. Heaps of vegetables, healthy fats, eggs, nuts, organic meat, fish and some low GI fruits as a treat. It’s about keeping things simple but using these food groups in a fun, creative way to nourish and support your body. No fads, no myths, no preservatives. Just real food, the way nature intended.
