Paleo Caramel Sauce Recipe [Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free]

There is something about a caramel sauce. I’m not sure why but I’ve never actually been a huge chocolate sauce (or ice cream) fan, I’ve always gone for caramel. Is anyone else with me on this? (hello… is there anybody out there……?) I can’t be the only person who isn’t a huge chocolate sauce or ice cream fan?

While creating my deconstructed ANZAC Slice (if you haven’t gone and entered our competition yet, hop to it!), I got thinking about creating a healthier dairy free and paleo caramel sauce.

Eat Right on the Road – Snacks Edition + WIN

I don’t know about you but I seriously have no idea where this year has gone. We are almost in May already, May! It’s getting colder and before we know it, we are going to be snuggled on the couch with our Nana blankets on after work!

This year has gone particularly quick for us because we have had so much on. We aren’t usually that busy and it’s been kind of weird having something on most weekends so far this year. The fact that we have been super busy has gotten me thinking about other people who are out and about quite a bit and how often this is used as an excuse to eat poorly.

I thought it would be a good idea to put together a quick post with some super easy options for eating right while on the road. Products that keep well without being refrigerated or can be taken quickly as you run out the door to have while on your way to where-ever you are going. This post is all about different types of snacks that are easy to eat on the run.

Tongariro Alpine Crossing – Day Walk

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing is touted as one of the best day walks in New Zealand (if not the world) and for good reason. It’s freaking beautiful!

We are super lucky to have this area of our beautiful country in our backyard as there are so many amazing walks in the region. This wasn’t our first go at the Tongariro Alpine crossing as we did the first half of the Tongariro Crossing a few years back when the second half of the crossing was closed. This meant that we could only go to the emerald lakes and then had to turn around the hike out the same way we came in. This time around we got to do the whole she-bang!

Healthier Deconstructed ANZAC Slice [Gluten Free] + WIN

ANZAC Day is a special day for us Kiwis. ANZAC (Australia, New Zealand Army Corp) day is national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. Whilst a lot of people are just stoked that they get a day off work now that ANZAC day has been ‘mondayised’, it is a great day to spend time with your family and reflect on the things you are grateful for.

This 25th April (ANZAC day) is the perfect opportunity to get in the kitchen and try your hand at baking something ANZAC related. While the usual ANZAC biscuits are lovely I thought I would try my hand at something a little bit healthier and different this year.


For those non-kiwis you may be wondering why they named a biscuit after the Anzacs? Well, here’s how it goes; Care packages sent from those back home to the soldiers, needed to contain ingredients that didn’t spoil and therefore the soldiers would receive them in edible condition. The traditional ANZAC biscuits contains flour, oats, golden syrup, dessicated coconut, sugar, butter and bicarbonate of soda.

I’ve decided to do something a little bit different this ANZAC day so I created a deconstructed ANZAC Slice. This healthier deconstructed ANZAC Slice is naturally gluten free as well as dairy free (if dairy free chocolate is used). It’s actually super easy to make and doesn’t take long at all but it looks really pretty served in a glass!
