Its winter and its cold and rainy here today. The perfect weather for comfort food. I’m not talking ‘junk’ comfort food. I’m talking those family meals that leave you feeling warm from the inside out. They make you think of a certain family member, or shared meals that bought you joy. This recipe makes me feel just like that.
Its been many years since I have eaten a waffle, and in fact until the other day, my kids had never eaten a waffle. Go figure! It’s not something that is as big here in Australia as it might be in America perhaps. I’m not sure why that is. I remember having them as a young child when we visited my nan’s, but I think they may have been the packet variety, even though she was a great baker. The last year, though, I have had a need to find myself a waffle iron and make waffles.

If you have been looking into paleo or been following it for any period of time, then you are going to have heard the name Diane Sanfilippo. If you haven’t then you may know her very popular program The 21 Day Sugar Detox (21DSD) or her award winning book Practical Paleo. Diane is a certified holistic nutrition consultant from the United States and shares her wealth of knowledge on her popular blog and podcast Balanced Bites. She is one of my role models I guess you could say, but I digress.
I have personally done the 21 DSD program twice and love it. Its easy to follow and offers some very delicious and nutritional meals. I found the meals very easy to prepare, while still sharing a different style of cooking with me than I am used too. Many of the dishes became family favourites, but none more than the dish that I am going to share with you today.
It may be the start of summer here, but we have still been getting some wet weather. The perfect weather for a bowl of soup. Well, actually, anytime of year is good for a bowl of soup.
There is something so comforting about a bowl of soup. You also know you are getting a bowl of good, healthy food as well. I haven’t heard of anyone complaining about a bowl of unhealthy soup.
Another day another curry. Believe me, we do eat other meals other than curries, but they are an easy, go-to meal in my house. I have been under the pump of late and starting to feel under the weather, so I needed an easy option tonight for dinner. When you haven’t got a lot of time or energy a curry is the perfect meal.
