Simple Simon Spelt Pancakes

Simple Simon Spelt Pancakes

Laini Oldfield | January 8, 2020
You can’t get easier than this. My kids make these pancakes themselves more than I care to admit.
You can easily boost the nutrition of these pancakes by adding the optional boosters below, but of course my children more often than not choose to keep it super simple.


1 cup spelt flour (use wholemeal, white, or half half according to your preference)
1 cup milk of choice
1 egg


Optional boosters:
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
1 tablespoon LSA
2 teaspoons beetroot powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 mashed banana / berries / grated apple or pear
Sub 1/4 cup spelt flour for another flour like quinoa flour


1. Mix flour and baking flour together
2. Add milk and egg
3. Pour into greased pan and flip when bubbles appear, or when the underside is brown.
4. Enjoy with maple syrup, yoghurt and berries.
My Christmas Day Recipe Review (+ how I survived hosting)

My Christmas Day Recipe Review (+ how I survived hosting)

Laini Oldfield | December 20, 2019

So we survived hosting an early Christmas lunch for Jordan’s family of 38 over the weekend.  

It was fabulous actually. It was the least stressful Christmas lunch in a long time. I made a bunch of Christmas recipes, mostly ahead of time.  

Here’s my review of the Christmas recipes I made, in the hopes it might help some of you with your Christmas menu planning. xo  

My 3 biggest reasons for success…

  1. I didn’t attempt to be responsible for feeding everybody. They all brought along food to share. And that’s half the beauty of Christmas in my opinion! Everyone contributing and sharing and appreciating.
    But of course… being surrounded by beautiful wholefood Christmas recipes here at TWC, I was busting to make more than I was personally required to!

  2. Secondly, I made almost everything in advance. All I really had to do the morning of, was to cook some rice and have fun decorating with the kids!

  3. I chose simple recipes.

Ok, here’s the review! Click the image of each recipe to see the recipe.

Pomegranate salad

I’ve made this salad for the last 3 special occasions I’ve been to, and it never disappoints! It’s so different, and looks quite fancy. The flavour combinations are unusual and soooo good! With the pops of red pomegranate, it’s the perfect special Christmas salad.

Make in advance:
Make the dressing
Chop the almonds
Everything except cooking the rice (to avoid drying out overnight)

Jewelled Persian Rice Salad

Nut Roast

I made this for Jordan’s uncle who doesn’t eat meat, but it was just as popular with the meat lovers!

This was prepared in advance (read: chuck all ingredients into a bowl and mix), popped in the fridge in the loaf pan, ready to go into the oven 1.5hrs before lunch. The sauce was made in advance and simply heated before serving.

Highly recommended!

Kombucha Ice Pops

These were made entirely by our 13yo who loves kombucha. They were a massive hit with all the adults, and some of the kids.

Made completely in advance. Just pop them out of the freezer, and onto a plate of ice to serve.

Mango Elderflower Tonicka Kombucha Ice Blocks

Peanut Butter Fudge

I’m sure you’ve heard me sing it’s praises enough already. Love it. Made 2 weeks in advance, ha!

Peanut Butter Fudge

Chocolate Crackle Christmas Trees

I make these every year, because they’re so quick and easy to make and besides being appealing for the kids, they make a great table centrepiece!

Made completely in advance. Just have a piece of cardboard on hand to make the mould.

Chocolate Crackle Christmas Trees

Roasted Spiced Chickpea Salad

I’ve lost count how many times I’ve made this over the years. I don’t add the spinach to it because I like it spicy and crunchy.

Make in advance:
Lemon dressing
Spice mix

Pomegranate Raspberry Snow Cones

Although I won’t say these are healthy per se, they’re free of all the numbers and horrid stuff you’ll find in regular snow cones.

I’m glad I doubled the recipe, because we’re still enjoying them this week . 😉

The kids are loving it.

Make the syrup in advance and store in the fridge (in a squeezie bottle – I used a tomato sauce one, and yes it caused some surprised and disgusted facial expressions on the kids when they thought I was squirting tom sauce on their snow cone, ha!)

Christmas Chutney

A winner as an accompaniment to roast chicken or a cheese board.

I made this about 3 weeks in advance 😉

Christmas Chutney

I also made some beetroot hommus, homemade Magnums, and white chocolate mousse logs. They were nice, but not stand-outs, so I won’t list the recipes here.

For my side of the family’s Christmas gathering next week, I’ll be making these puppies that I saw had a good review in the group….

Want more Christmas recipe inspiration?

Head here:

Now, I’ve gotta say, I was equally in love with the simple Christmas decorations we went for (decided on the day before – that’s how we roll).

  1. For the tables:
    Greenery from outside
  2. For the name place card things:
    Sprigs of rosemary, with little red bows attaching the piece of white cardboard our daughter had written their name on.
  3. For the chairs:
    Thick plain red ribbon, tied in a bow around each dining chair. So simple and sooo effective! It made the room feel so festive and put together. I’ll keep them for years to come.

I wish I’d taken more pictures! The pictures I DO have, have lots of other people’s children in them so I can’t share publicly here 🙁

Happy Christmas everybody! I hope something here helps you in your planning.

Remember, keep the main thing the main thing – enjoy yourself and each other.

Meet Changing Habits + Tips & Recipes to Supercharge Your Health

Meet Changing Habits + Tips & Recipes to Supercharge Your Health

Laini Oldfield | December 2, 2019

I feel a sisterhood with Changing Habits.


Because they truly care about what goes in the products they make – like us.

Australia’s most renowned nutritionist, Cyndi O’Meara steers the ship over there, and she is one inspiration woman!

Always standing up to promote advocacy for the safety of our food supply.

Educating people en-mass around going back to basics with our food.

Challenging the status-quo and food manufacturers.

And now? Offering products that are clean as a whistle, and designed to super-charge our health.

They’re not your run-of-the-mill foods, so take a couple minutes here to discover them for yourself.

Here they are, with some fab tips on how to use them:


Gelatin Powder, Certified Organic


Aside from being the star of many desserts like jelly & marshmallows, Gelatin is a go-to for anyone wanting to work on their gut-health (thanks to the glutamic acid that may help repair the mucosal lining of the stomach).

But it’s not the same as the gelatin you can buy from the supermarket (and even many health food stores). That stuff? All it does is give you lovely set desserts.

Not only is this Gelatin fab for gut health, but it also provides a great amount of protein and amino acids that the body needs to function optimally.

– Helps boost digestion
– Helps boost nutrient assimilation
– Aids liver detoxification
– Promotes hormone balance
– Improves sleep
– Is beneficial to the skin, teeth, nails and hair health.  

It can be used in making gummy jellies, marshmallows… but you can pretty well use it anything!

Sprinkle some in smoothies, on scrambled eggs, across your spag bol for goodness sake!

These recipes for gummy jellies and marshmallows will definitely give a more exciting twist to your gelatin:  

Gut Healing JelliesEasy Marshmallows: Honey Sweetened & All Natural

Peak Performance Blend, Certified Organic


The first time I tried this, I gotta be honest – I was not a fan of the taste. I’m a big woose when it comes to food that’s good for me, but not awesome for my taste buds 😉

But come the third try? I was officially neutral about the taste, and I wanted to keep drinking it every day because it made me feel good!

So stick at it, it’s worth it.

Peak Performance Blend is a fusion of nutrient-dense real foods that provides a natural source of vitamin C, iron, folate and fibre, and it’s fermented wholefood blend also contains prebiotics and probiotics!

1 tablespoon a day provides your body with the essential vitamins and minerals it needs.

It’s super easy – just add it to juice or water and you’re good to go.

Cacao Chips, Certified Organic


Some companies rely on clever marketing, Changing Habits just rely on quality products like these Organic Cacao Chips. Create choc chip muffins, cookies, cakes, slices and more with these beautiful organic 70% chocolate chips with no added nasties! Just real food, the Changing Habits way.

Who doesn’t love chocolate chips?! They make any cake, muffin, biscuit and cookie a real treat. But, finding chocolate chips without soy lecithin, emulsifiers, flavours and vegetable oils isn’t easy. Rest assured, these Organic Cacao Chips are 70% cacao and made using only four real food ingredients.

Cacao Melts, Certified Organic


Anybody in their right mind loves chocolate, right?

But when we grab these guys from the supermarket…

…and you get these nasties in return: empty white processed sugar, artificial flavour, and lecithin.

And we know none of that makes our body sing, right?

On the other hand, grab these Cacao Melts and you bring home 100% organic cacao. That leaves you room to add your own choice of sweetener. You might choose my fave – 100% pure and Organic Maple Syrup.

Changing Habits Organic Cacao Melts contain nutrients like magnesium, iron, and zinc and are easy to cook with – you can make homemade chocolates, drinks, ganache, fruit covered in chocolate, cakes, chocolate chip cookies, icings…the list is endless.

Thinking of where to use these cacao melts? Just to remind you, we have a heap of chocolate recipes where you can add these. Here’s some heavenly goodness:

All Natural Seaweed Salt

If you’ve done our free 21-Day Challenge, you’ll know that swapping out table salt to a good quality salt like Himalayan / Celtic / Murray River salt is wholefood 101.

You might also know that seaweed is fantastic for your health (and ironically, has iodising properties. It’s a waaay better version of the iodine that’s literally added back in to table salt after all the good stuff has been taken away from it to sell to industry.)

Changing Habits Seaweed salt is basically a Himalayan salt mixed with organic dulse (seaweed) powder. It’s a land-based and hand-mined salt straight from the source with no refining and no bleaching or anti-caking agents added. It contains 84 minerals and trace elements that are highly beneficial for the body, including magnesium, calcium, copper, potassium and iron.

Unlike normal sea salt, Himalayan Salt is uncontaminated by environmental factors. Better still, Himalayan Salt is renowned for its consistent composition and purity. The composition of the salt is tested regularly and has been shown to consistently contain all the major components of the known 84 mineral and trace elements of Himalayan Crystal Salt.

Organic dulse is a sea vegetable – a natural medicine treasure chest laden with micronutrients and healthy goodness – Dulse contains Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, and E as well as iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, chromium, zinc and all the trace elements required by the human body.

Iodine is important for essential hormone development in the human body.

Learn more about Changing Habits Seaweed Salt here.

This Seaweed Salt can replace all other salt products. You can use it as a table salt and sprinkle on porridge, salads, vegetables and other meals, or use in cooking.

Here’s some recipes to tease your “salt palate”:

Natural Probiotics, Certified Organic


Note: If you’re taking the Peak Performance Blend, you don’t need to double-up on this one.

At Changing Habits, they believe that you truly are what you eat. That’s why their Probiotics are never made in a lab, but the way nature intended, with the best organic real food ingredients. Nothing else is added – it’s just real food made from real ingredients sourced from real places. For your optimal health.

Through extensive research, it was discovered that many of the probiotics available on the market are made in Petri dishes, genetically modified and with no prebiotics — the actual food that the probiotic lives on and eats. To top it off, most were packaged in capsule form, some of which can contain artificial properties.

These probiotics contain the best organic ingredients, naturally fermented (by a method trademarked as floraferm), dried and made into a powder.

To put it simply, these prebiotics and probiotics are made from real food, sourced from real places (never in a lab), free from colours, flavours and preservatives. They are also gluten free and vegan friendly.

And your probiotics to juice, water, or sprinkle on your breakfast!

Pet Pro+, Prebiotic & Probiotic, Certified Organic


Pet Pro+ is a blend of fermented foods which contain prebiotics and probiotics suitable for your pets. Whether you have cats, dogs, guinea pigs or horses (or anything in between!), just one small serving a day gives your pet the prebiotics and probiotics they need.

Free from dairy, wheat grain, GM foods, colours, flavours, preservatives and fillers, Pet Pro+ helps keep your pet in great health without any added nasties. It is made using certified organic foods which have gone through a natural organic fermentation process and have been dried into a powder.

Pet Pro+ can be mixed with your pet’s food or made into pet treats. Start your pet with ¼ teaspoon and gradually increase to the recommended serve size for your pet. Please note that, just like humans, your pet may have a cleansing period when their body starts to detox shortly after starting Pet Pro+. This may mean more, or smellier poop temporarily. Ewww, but good.

Supreme Green Blend, Certified Organic


Note: If you’re taking the Peak Performance Blend, you don’t need to double-up on this one.

Supreme green blend is a unique blend combination of key green superfoods which are barley grass powder, chlorella, spirulina, broccoli sprout powder, green stevia powder (natural sweetener) and New Zealand kelp powder. It’s simply nature’s way of supplying plant-based vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants, conveniently. It’s also chemical, pesticide, and herbicide-free. 

The Supreme Green Blend can be taken with food or stirred into water, juice, coconut water or another favourite beverage. Or mix into pesto and dips such as guacamole!

Colloidal Minerals, Organic


My mother in Susannah (who many of you may know from Member Care) has sworn by Colloidal Minerals for many years.

Sadly, some of our food is lacking in minerals due to soil depletion. One way to boost your minerals and trace elements is to have a daily dose of our organic Colloidal Minerals  – a health product that is actually what it says it is…healthy.

True to the Changing Habits philosophy, this Colloidal Minerals has no added nasties like artificial flavours, colours, preservatives, stabilisers or toxic elements.

Just add to juice or water and away you go!

inca inchi oil

Inca Inchi Oil, Certified Organic


In our blog, Wonder Which Oil to Use for Which Purpose , I talked about oils and how/when to use each of them based on your needs. We compared Sesame oil, Sunflower oil, MCT oil, Sweet Almond oil, Extra Virgin Avocado oil, Flaxseed oil, Macadamia oil, Hemp Seed oil, Olive oil, etc. 

Now comes Changing Habit’s Inca Inchi Oil that won gold medals at the European food fair in France for best new culinary oil. This oil is a virgin cold pressed, additive-free, non-refined vegetable oil and contains Omega 3 (ALA), Omega 6 and Omega 9.

It can be used in much the same way as you would use flaxseed oil – in salad dressings, on vegetables, pasta, to make a mayonnaise, as a dipping sauce, with a vinaigrette or in smoothies. 

Keep in the fridge, and it’s best not heated (to preserve the fatty acids).

Seeds Contain 4 of 5 Essential Nutrients for Kids

Seeds Contain 4 of 5 Essential Nutrients for Kids

Laini Oldfield | November 5, 2019

Not bad for a tiny little seed, eh?!

Even I was gob-smacked as I put these infographics (below) together for you. How can such comprehensive nutrition come out of such humble little things?!

After listening to Paediatric Naturopath Jess Donovan of Natural Super Kids, lay it down in her “5 Essential Nutrients for Kids” live training inside our free Facebook group, I started brainstorming ways I could get more of those same nutrients into my own 5 kids.

And you know what I found? The answer that would require the least effort of my part, while delivering incredible levels of 4 of those 5 nutrients she spoke about – Seeds!

I mean, just look at the comparisons in the graphics below! Of course, perhaps it’s easier to eat 100g of meat than it is to eat 100g of sunflower seeds, but it’s a very convincing demonstration to me of why we should be incorporating these little beauties into our every day lives.

My inner nerd came out and I ran some startling numbers on the nutrients in these seeds compared to other sources of those nutrients.

Check it out…

How interesting is that?! Well, maybe it’s just me but perhaps there’s some fellow nutrient-comparing nerds out there too!

When we consistently fill our bodies with food that truely nourishes instead of a merely providing a cheap energy hit, we feel a palpable difference in both body and mind.

I hope you loved learning about the power of seeds as much as I did.

Here’s a bunch of ways to use these superbly nourishing seeds:
