Part of my work in clinic is to identity and address the root cause which is responsible for the symptoms a client is experiencing. The most common underlying condition I see is unbalanced hormones. Once I noticed that balancing hormones leads to the reduction of so many other symptoms, I knew I had to create a simple plan to help people understand and support their hormones.

Follow the plan

  2. Great to see the recipes from Sugar Free Farm here – thank you for sharing! I am inspired to give them ago and try sugar free living too :-) Do you have the recipe for the sugar free ketchup too? It would be fab to try it with these! (and perhaps make the permanent switch to it too) Thanks Davey

    • Hello Davey,

      Thanks for getting in touch! My pleasure, I am so pleased that you are inspired to give them a try. Please let me know what you think.

      I will be posting the sugar free ketchup recipe soon and I also have an eBook coming out soon which is my 7 day sugar detox. It has everyday easy recipes which I think you will like.

      Please check back later or sign up to my newsletter to find out when its live

      Let me know how you are getting on!

  3. Hi, loving the show, I am known by some as ‘the sugar police’ so I am thrilled you have made this programme. Can these nuggets be frozen once cooked and then defrosted and reheated as needed?

    • Hello Jayne,

      Great! I am so pleased you are loving the show and I think it is brilliant that you are known as the sugar police :)

      Yes, the nuggets can be frozen once cooked and then defrosted and reheated. I am a big advocate of cooking in bulk, even though I love cooking nobody has the time to spend hours in the kitchen everyday.

      Hope you enjoy the rest of the show!

  4. Hi angelique. We’ve really enjoyed watching the sugar free farm series and have got some great ideas to use as recipes at home. I’m was wondering if you had a recipe for a creamy pasta sauce that was sugar, gluten, dairy and egg free as my husband has coaeliac disease but also has in tolerances to dairy and egg and is worried about eating too much sugar in ready made products. Thank you.

    • Hello Cheryl,

      Thank you, it’s great to hear that you enjoyed Sugar Free Farm and that you have new recipe ideas!

      I don’t have a creamy dairy, gluten and egg free pasta sauce recipe yet, but I will get working on that! So please check back later or sign up to my newsletter to find out when its live

      I will be posting my gluten free cauliflower pizza base up soon as well.

  5. Hi I’m loving the thought of transforming my family’s life but as a mother of 5 children which includes teens ! My question is how on earth can I do this and keep in my small budget plus we live up north in a steelwork town and we lack the specialist shops and availability of produce like flowers and powders and cocoa butters where do I get these ?

    • Hello Amanda,

      I am so pleased you are looking to make these healthy changes for the family. The initial cost of the items can be higher but they do last a while and you don’t have to get everything at once. I am sure the children keep you busy, so make simple changes at first like cutting out all the refined white flour and removing sugar while increasing vegetables.

      Have a look at my shop, you will be able to find most of the new items and they can be delivered.

      Please let me know if you have any questions and how you are getting on.

  6. Hi I’m just starting out on this way of eating and want to make the chicken nuggets for my family, I live in a village and can’t always get ingredients, I see I can get the coconut flour online but it is quite expensive is there an alternative I can use please?

  7. Hi, is it 280 centigrade or Fahrenheit on the oven. Thanks

    • Hello,

      Thank you for asking, I have just seen there was an error which I have corrected. It’s 240 degrees and it is centigrade.

      Let me know what you think!

  8. Hi Angelique, your recipe for chicken nuggets states 280 degrees, which gas mark is this please ?

    • Hello,

      Thank you for asking! I have just seen there was an error, it’s 240 degrees which is gas mark 9.

  9. What do you suggest when egg can’t be used?

    • Hello, I use chia seeds in water as an egg substitute.

      You could try ground chia seeds (ground flaxseeds could work as well) in water with the spices. About a tablespoon ground seed to every 8 – 12 tablespoons of water. Haven’t tried this myself yet! Let me know.

  10. This is soooooo yummy and I need to make this again soon!!

    • Hello Jo! Thank you :) post a photo when you do please!
