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

  1. Loving the programme and the recipes!! Can you make this and store it in a sealed tub in a cupboard or fridge rather than freeze it all?

    • Hello,

      I am so pleased you are loving the show and the recipes. Really good to hear!

      Thanks for checking – Its only the sweet potato purée that needs freezing if you are not using it all at once.

      The granola is best kept in a sealed container in a cupboard. Hope you enjoy!

      • Hello

        I’m about to make the granola and just wonder how long you think it will last in an air tight container ?
        Also I have made the cauliflower base pizza Absoultly DELICIOUS the whole family loved it .

        • Hello Tina,

          It should last a few weeks in an air tight container.

          I am so pleased you made and enjoyed the cauliflower pizza, really great to hear the whole family loved it!

          Let me know what you think about the granola and share a photo if you can.

  2. Can you please let me know the recipe for the sugar free lemon bars. I have just watched the last episode of sugar free farm and was so interested in the results. Would love to try the recipes, look delicious!

    • Hello Jo,

      Thanks for asking, here is the recipe:
      https://angeliquepanagos.com/sugar-free-lemon-bars

      Remember, although refined-sugar free, this recipe contains dates which are dried fruits and can raise your blood sugar levels. All dried fruits are high in fructose so should be eaten in moderation. You guessed it, this recipe should feature in the 20% of 80/20!

      Hope you enjoy, do let me know what you think please and share a photo if you can.

  3. Loved the programme and was great to see the contestants literally glowing skin as they ended the series .. A testament to the combination of your well balanced diet and the exercise and fresh air they had in their farm work – will you be putting together a recipe book of all the dishes you devised both fruit free and fruit laden as I would love to get a peek at it!

    • Hello Phaedra,

  4. Hello saw them making a date and lemon slice would love the recipe to that

  5. How long will the granola keep for once it’s baked, if kept in a sealed container? It sounds delicious, just need to go and get all the ingredients.

    • Hello Julie,

      It will last a couple of weeks in an air tight container.

      Enjoy and let me know what you think please!

  6. I do not like dates, in fact cannot even stand the smell of them! What can I use instead, please.

    Love the recipies.

    • Hello Kate, glad you are loving the recipes!
      I often use apricots instead of dates. Which recipe are you referring to about the dates?
      Thanks
      Angelique :)

  7. Hi Angelique, after years of different diets and yo-yoing weight I am worried now I am 60 I am even more prone to weight related problems. I know it isn’t going to be easy but I must make the effort to take your advice.
    Ps. Will start with actually having a regular breakfast. Your Granola sounds great. When does the vanilla get added.

    • Hello Jacquie, I know what you mean- I have been there myself. The beauty of health is it starts with your next meal. So starting now is perfect! It’s about consistency above perfection.

      You can add the vanilla to the blender at the same time as the sweet potato purée. Thanks for spotting that!

      Sign up to my newsletter for new recipes and to hear when my book is out which will be filled with loads more recipes.

      Warmest wishes,
      Angelique

  8. Why has the granola got no oats in it as I thought that they were good for you..?

    • Hello Vicky, this is a grain-free granola. An alternative to try! Plus it is a breakfast option for those who have any intolerances to oats or grains.
      Let me know what you think!
