I love ANZAC day. Despite the loss, terror and hardship suffered by so many of our soldiers that fateful day, now, 100 years on, it is a day to be revered, embraced and even enjoyed.

We live in a rural town with a small population of only around 5000. The feel in the air at our community ANZAC ceremony each year is amazing. Togetherness, gratefulness, reverence, awe, sorrow, admiration and respect intertwine to create an atmosphere which makes one feel very proud and nostalgic. Emotions are high and voices are low. It's a beautiful event to take part in.

This year, for the first time, we think we will attend the dawn service with our 3 young girls. I feel very passionately about them knowing the story of the ANZAC and having the same pride in our diggers as my husband and I do. I can only imagine that the magic of the ceremony being held at the day's dawn, will add to the experience. I'm really looking forward to it - even with the chilly conditions which are predicted here for this Saturday.

What are you and your family doing to commemorate ANZAC day? I'd love to hear your plans and thoughts.

In the mean time, I hope you enjoy my most recent recipe creation. It's an adaptation of the paleo ANZAC biscuit recipe from the Natural Evolutions website - makers of the Mt Uncle's banana flour used in the recipe. The flour can be ordered directly from that website or from Bulk Wholefoods, which is where I get mine from. If you place an order with BW today, you will have your banana flour in time to make a batch of these scrumptious bickies for Anzac Day. I'll definitely be baking some for Saturday - and all year round as we remember our diggers, not just on April 25th, but every day.

1 cup flaked almonds
1/2 cup Mt Uncle's banana flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup coconut sugar
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
130g coconut oil
3 tbs honey
1 tsp bicarb soda
2 tbs water
1 egg

Preheat oven to 140 degrees and line two trays with baking paper.
Place almonds, flours, sugar and coconut in a large bowl. Stir honey and oil in a small saucepan over low heat until fully melted and combined. Combine bicarb and water then add to oil and honey. Beat egg and add to dry ingredients. Add the oil mixture and stir well to combine all ingredients.
Spoon desired amount of mixture onto prepared tray and flatten a little. Leave about 4cm between each biscuit as they will spread.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until nice and golden brown. Remove from oven. The biscuits will still be very soft. Leave on tray to completely cool and firm up before removing from tray. Yummiest served immediately but will keep for days in a sealed airtight container.

Enjoy with your favourite cuppa.

They sound yummo... I always shed a tear at the ceremony... tough thinking about the horror...but grateful that so many men and women fought to keep us safe... quite overwhelming when you really think about it... Thanks Leah....


I wasn't really buying all these gluten-free fad diet at first. I was into a lot of gluten products when I first tried a meat free diet. I noticed that I become more depressed by doing so. I have learned that consuming gluten even in small amounts can really affect our mood. Well this isn't really proven. Maybe it was just something like a placebo effect. The least I can do is try to be creative with what I eat. I noticed going grain free makes me feel stronger.

Yummy! Actually I love vegetables and having them with each meal throughout the day. I would definitely try this recipe. It seems that cucumber is the main part of this dish if I am not wrong.

What's good about this is, ANZAC has a new thing to associate with, and that's the biscuit. ANZAC day gives a mixed emotions for everyone and people will always remember this day for something that is painful, teary, but worth to be proud of. Talking about the biscuit, I'm happy to know that it is a healthy one. Those who are on a diet would definitely love this!

When it's time to publish the results from your technical project, strange things can happen conceptually or for real. Peers and colleagues suddenly want to be helpful. Thus, those who are really involved in the project must make tough decisions about how to handle the so-called credits or blames.


They also looks like chocolate biscuits.


Healthy biscuits they are.
