Halloumi Salad with Strawberry, Watermelon and Basil

We haven't had halloumi for about a year as it's not something we can find easily in Vietnam, so whilst  in Sydney this holiday my 12 year old spotted it in the grocer and wanted it for breakfast. I have to admit this was total torture to cook up knowing I couldn't eat the golden crispy oozy halloumi whilst on the autoimmune protocol but I couldn't deny my son the pleasure so being the awesome mum I am, I cooked it up along with a delicious strawberry, watermelon and basil salad. He inhaled it within 5 minutes... we are working on the mindful eating ;)

Spicy Nut and Seed Brittle (Snaps)

One of my favourite treats growing up were sesame snaps. They came in a packet with 4 thin rectangles of toasty, crunchy, sugary sesame. It would be the best day ever if I could separate all 4 layers without the rectangles breaking. These spicy nut and seed brittle's remind me of this, except I have added almonds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. You can leave the almonds out to keep it nut free for school treats and just use your favourite seeds. They are great on their own as a treat or sprinkled on salads for a sweet and spicy crunch, you can leave out the cayenne pepper to keep this nightshade free.
