11899889_10153541803970761_4779303564398393516_n(1)‘Hole Food Family’ is our family cookbook, the way we eat day to day, a homage to wholesome food and a passion for growing, cooking and eating it!

It all comes from a hole in the ground and is inspired by the gaping chasm which opens three times a day demanding to be fed (in fact it returns to a hole in the ground too) “It’s the Circle of life…and it moves us all” OK OK enough about motions.  If you’ve ever spent time with kids you’ll know how urgent that demand can be and noisy too (I’m talking about food), so in a bid to stay healthy, feed us all and avoid too much processing and packaging Hole Food Family was born.

I’m hoping you’ll find some firm favourites to add to your own repertoire, maybe some inspiration, or maybe you can give me a few tips, all posts are open for comment, so let me know what you think!

Breakfast ideas:

Papaya Yoghurt Breakfast Boats with Homemade Granola

I got into buying papaya during the summer to make a Hemsley & Hemsley ‘Papaya & Halloumi Salad‘, which by the way is absolutely delicious and a regular on the summer dinner scene at ours now.  I picked one up the other day thinking that I’d make the salad, but it’s so cold I couldn’t…

Raspberry & Cacao Chia Breakfast Pudding

I have more Chia seeds that I know what to do with, thanks to Hannah over at Zone in Yoga!  Having more food than I need fills me with anxiety, mainly because I don’t want to waste it but also because I understand (in a small way) the energy it takes to produce food.  To…

Blueberry Breakfast Crumble

I don’t know about you, but until my recent colon cancer diagnosis I hadn’t heard of SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth).  SIBO can be responsible for symptoms such as fatigue, bloating, wind, constipation and diarrhoea, Iron and B12 deficiencies as well as more long term chronic disease.  It dawned on me (slowly),  how my ‘healthy’…

Chocolate Coconut Granola

Oh my, this is the kind of breakfast I absolutely shudder at when I see it in the supermarket.  My contempt for chocolate breakfast cereal, and my resounding ‘absolutely not’ when the children ask for it!  But here am I making it.  The truth is this is beautiful, and this version is really nutritious too! …

Cacao & Cardamom Lazy Morning Granola

Sweet, Sticky, Morning Goodness… Oh good morning chocolate breakfast hit! Oh indulge me honey toasted oats… Wait, you’re slurping the sweet spicy chocolaty milk from the bowl?  Don’t worry, me too!  It’s half term holidays and we’re enjoying really slow mornings at home!  Making granola this morning in my pyjamas was pure joy for me. …

Salted Caramel Pistachio Oat Pudding (or porridge if you like?)

I knew it’d take a cracking dish to get me back to the blog… and this is most definitely it.  Life has been multi-dimentional and so full lately, in the best possible way… But here’s some blog love.  If you’re a pudding for breakfast lover then this should satiate you’re sweet yearnings.  It’s sweet, salty,…

Sweet & Sticky Fig & Pistachio Quinoa Porridge…& Eating Intuitively

“The weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful…” This line generates a feeling of warmth within me… not just that it connects me to my own inner fire, or Agni as it’s known in Yoga.  Tuning in to our own inner Agni can connect us to feelings of internal physical warmth, we…
