I have shared a number of recipes on my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook page and so many people have asked me, do you have a recipe page I can find these on? Well now I do! Below are just a few of my favourites I have on a weekly basis! I am gluten free, sugar free, I restrict dairy, caffeine and alcohol free. I totally believe its one of the reasons why my vestibular and anxiety symptoms have improved. I am a great believer that everything begins in the gut – fix your gut, fix your health! If anyone has a wonderful recipe they want to share please post a comment on this page or my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/mummyseeingdouble
I restrict salt in my diet as its not good for vertigo or dizziness, the only salt I will use is Pink Himalayan Salt if any which is lower in sodium then table salt and has other health benefits too.

Coriander Turkey Burgers
1 pack of lean turkey mince (500g)
1 red onion (chopped finely)
1 red chilli (you can use less or more depending on your spice level or leave out if you do not like spice!)
1 egg (whisked)
Handful of fresh coriander (chopped)
1/2 red pepper (chopped finely)
Grated parmesan (I put a coupe of tbps in, keeps the moist)
Pink himalayan salt
Combine all the above ingredients well, then take a handful of the mixture at a time and pat into a flat ball, roll it in gluten free flour and lay on a sheet of tin foil on a grill pan, keep doing this until all the mixture has gone. Put under the grill on high (not too close to the grill heat) and turn once golden brown, keep turning until done, test by cutting one in half and make sure piping hot and no pink can be seen inside. This is my own recipe. I change it quite a bit sometimes, I put basil instead of coriander, I sometimes remove the red peppers and instead use cooked soft peppers you get in the jars. I sometimes use spring onions instead of red onions, there are lots of alternative ways of doing these, have fun and use your imagination and make up your own ingredients!

Almond Protein Balls – Great snack!
I literally just chuck all the ingredients into the bowl, so these are not accurate measurements….just adjust as you see fit!
1 cup of almond butter (might need more!)
1 cup of gluten free oats (might need more!)
90% organic raw cacao chips
1/2 cup of raw organic honey
Roll into small balls, and put in fridge or can be frozen! use more qty of ingredients if you want more balls! I have two of these for one snack and a max of 2 a day.
1 cup of almond milk
1 cup of almond flour or to desired thickness
tsp vamilla essence or cinnamon
Fry in a non stick frying pan. Another pancake I make is banana and egg, simple as that! I also use gluten free oats to bulk my pancakes up a bit.
