Nana Ice Cream With Gut Healing Collagen and Slippery Elm - GAPS, Paleo

One thing we always seem to have at home (and even more so now living in hot and humid Vietnam) are over-ripe bananas. They're a bit like avocados, one day they're just right to eat, then the next they have all these black spots on them! Once they are at this stage they either get baked (like my Chocolate Banana Bread recipe) or peeled and frozen for nana ice cream or smoothies. The bananas with black spots are approved on the full GAPS diet so my 8yo is overjoyed with his delicious Nana Ice Cream treats (sometimes for breakfast too :)

Braised Vietnamese Meatballs (Paleo, GAPS, AIP Friendly)

I recently learnt how to make this simple braised Vietnamese meatball dish and it's become a family favourite, especially for my 8 yo who started on the full GAPS diet a couple of months ago. It's so quick and easy to make (as well as cheap!). Served with steamed vegetables to dip in the meatball liquid, or over some cauliflower rice (or rice if you can), you need to put this on your monthly dinner rotation!

Vietnamese Cassava Cake (Grain, Egg, Nut and Dairy Free)

Cassava was one of my favourite tubers growing up, I have delicious memories of the savoury curries and all the sweet desserts my mum would make.  I have certainly neglected to use this amazing little tuber in my kitchen once I moved out of home. Now that I'm living in the land of cassava (Vietnam) with homegrown cassava at my mum's country house I'm going to be making a few cassava recipes with my all time favourite Vietnamese Cassava Cake (bánh khoai mì) first.
