Did you know your mood and cheery disposition can be affected to your gut health?⠀ ⠀ In a healthy gut there would be lots of species of microbiome, but nowadays, with more stressful busy lives, there's fewer species than is ideal. The risk of unwanted forms of bacteria and yeast is on the up. ⠀ ⠀ When our bacteria is weakened our intestinal gut wall becomes vulnerable to attack. The result, autoimmune conditions and low grade inflammation. This was me, until I restored my gut health and removed the inflammatory culprits like grains, legumes, sugar and dairy from my diet. ⠀ ⠀ If you feel like a good tummy healer before xmas, my NOURISHING SPICED CAULIFLOWER RICE, TURMERIC AND KALE SOUP will help keep those microbiome happy and healthy😘. ⠀ ⠀ Recipe's in my bio above. With love and nourishment, jo x ⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #veganfood #vegansofig #healthyfoodshare
These crispy and gluten-free oven baked halloumi fries make the perfect low-carb party snack, especially when combined with our sugar-free homemade marinara sauce!🎊 Full recipe is on the blog, link in my bio.⠀ ⠀ #ketodietapp #lchf #lowcarb #primal #keto #ketodiet #ketofam #ketoadapted #KetoDietChallenge #ketochallenge #ketodiettracker #ketotracker #fatadapted #ketoapp #ketorecipe #glutenfreerecipes #ketodietvideo #ketodietvideorecipes #videorecipe #ketolife #modernfoodstories #ketomadesimple #easyketo #ketosnack #healthyrecipes #cleaneating #healthyfood
This dish is a hilarious testament to my poor gardening skills! I'm quite possibly the only woman who successfully managed to grow 5 ft 4 inch sprouting broccoli without an sprouting going on😂. In other words guys, I lovingly nurtured 5 ft 4 inch weeds🤣! ⠀ ⠀ CHARGRILLED BROCCOLINI WITH GINGER AND LIME using @waitroseandpartners broccolini! Dressed to impress in a zingy dressing using @coconutmerchant coconut aminos. If you've not tried coconut aminos before, it's one of my store cupboard essentials. It's less salty than soya sauce and a little sweet so the perfect gluten free ooomph for a dressing. ⠀ ⠀ Recipe's on the blog and in my bio guys. What's your funniest gardening story?

I've always been a firm believer in you are what you eat, but only more recently in you are what you digest😉! I didn't realise quite how important that really was until I was struck down with an autoimmune condition, a type of arthritis called #ankylosingspondylistis which had a devastating effect on my health for about 8 years. ⠀ ⠀ Thankfully, after alot of swotting up on gut health, trial and errors with supplementation and diet, i'm 6 years in remission this xmas... and drug free😍. One of the healing supplements I take regularly is collagen. Not only is my gut stronger and healthier but my hair, nails and skin. ⠀ ⠀ You can find the recipe for this Caramel Roobios Lucuma Latte in the new cookbook I just shot for @crushedtonic ⠀ ⠀ Lucuma gives a nice caramel taste without the sugars that will spike insulin levels. Do you take collagen too? Jo x ⠀ ⠀ #skinfood #guthealth #whatthedoctorordered #aip
It was a close call Pumpkin fries or Stuffed pumpkin skins but the fries won! Thanks to everyone who voted. Here's the winning recipe HEALTHY BAKED PUMPKIN FRIES WITH GINGER AND LIME. Such an autumnal treat don't you think?⠀ ⠀ So easy to make and truly delicious. I love to make them with Delicata or Hokkaido Pumpkins because I'm a lazy bum and you don't need to peel the skin😂🤣. They add a nice pop of colour and interest to the dinner table too.⠀ ⠀ The ginger and lime dressing is sugar and sweetener free so it’s great for those of you watching your sugar intake and the sesame and shelled hemp seeds @indigo_herbs add a nutty, crunchy texture to complement the soft, sweet pumpkin.⠀ ⠀ Who's up for some dunking action with these this week? This #vegan #grainfree recipe is new on the blog and in my bio today. Jo x ⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #grainfree #plantpowered ⠀ ⠀
Massive thank you to my amazing wing-women who have been making my Build Your Own Chia Bowl base recipe. It makes me so happy when I see all your amazing creations💕. ⠀ ⠀ Have you tried it yet? It's super easy to make and what I love about it is that you can totally put your own spin on it in a multitude of ways. ⠀ ⠀ Today I blitzed some blackberries into the @thechiaco base and layered with some vegan @coyo_uk coconut yoghurt. Pls make sure you tag me if you make it as I love seeing and sharing all your beautiful photos. You are one amazing force of creative passion. Keep shining gorgeous💕.

Do legumes bloat you? Legumes and I have this unrequited love affair going on... I love them but they certainly don't love me back🤣. ⠀ ⠀ I so love a good Tarka dahl and not being one to be deprived of my favourites I set about to make a Beat The Bloat version. Can you guess what it's made from?⠀ ⠀ Recipe's on my blog and in my bio guys. Topped today with crispy courgettes. Nom! Jo x ⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #eatprettythings #veganfood ⠀ ⠀
In need for Chocolate? Try our Raw Cacao @ www.biolovers.nl Sundays are Made for Chocolate. Get all you need @ www.biolovers.nl Photo by @modernfoodstories . "There’s a chocolate shelf in the kitchen. Home to a ripped open packet of raw cacao, an extremely large jar of cacao nibs, a tub of luscious cacao butter and thick slabs of 100% Ecuadorian dark chocolate. Mr B thinks its his but lets just say there’s a frequent visitor that raids it at least 4 times a week😉 . I’ve wanted to make a chocolate shake that’s creamy and delicious but which uses vegetables instead of fruit or sugar for a long time. So that’s what i’ve been up to today. . It's possibly one of the most delicious shakes i’ve created, using only carrot to sweeten it and is packed full of healthy greens, antioxidant boosting raw cacao @naturya and my all time favourite to make it creamy @plenishcleanse almond milk. It’s reminiscent of chocolate orange which is slightly bizarre as it doesn’t contain any orange😝 . This morning I sit, drinking chocolate greens, nibbling chunks of dark chocolate smug in the knowledge this is positively good for me😝 . Recipe’s under chocolate greens in my bio via #ukpaleoawards please vote, I'm down to the final few in the uk blogger of the year category. Would mean the world to me if you vote quickly.

Dreaming of this Sun Dried Tomato and Olive Broccoli Rice when I get home. Thanks to everyone @wildviewretreat for making this week such a wonderful experience. I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to cook for and nourish you all😘. ⠀ ⠀ If you’d like to try this easy one guys, the recipe’s on the blog and in my bio.

Did you know I found my dream of becoming a food photographer and nutritional chef as a result of an autoimmune condition that once controlled my life?⠀ ⠀ This time 6 years ago I sat on my parents floor having hit rock bottom. I'd seen specialist after specialist but no-one could explain my long list of symptoms, inflammation and pain. The strong, carefree woman I once was, was replaced by a worry wort and big over thinker. Thanks to a radical change in diet, healing my gut and a new outlook on life, I kicked that autoimmune condition into remission🙌🏻. The creativity of finding something I loved helped me heal, and I turned it into a business. ⠀ ⠀ Yeh, I totally get how scary it is starting out. You think everyone is better than you, you're too old to start something new. Well i'm almost 39 peeps so poo hoo to that idea😂! Do what you love and love what you do because trust me losing your health, it makes you realise, you totally deserve to feel passioned by what you do. You have a beautiful creativity inside you, the world deserves to see it.🙏🏻⠀ ⠀ Stop seeking perfection, stop comparing yourself to others and stop procrastinating!🤣 that’s my job😂Look forward and never look back.🤩 ⠀ What's your passion project? I'd love to hear more about what makes you sparkle. Much love Jo x ⠀ ⠀ Hot spiced pear shot for @crushedtonic ⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #stylingtheseasons #autumnvibes
When i'm shooting a soup recipe i'm always thinking about not only the taste of the base but the soup topper. It elevates a soup from nice to OMG 2nd bowl pls. Here are some of my favourite toppers for inspo😉 ⠀ ⠀ Nuts and seeds. Toasted with spices, herbs or my current favourtie pink himalayan salt and apple cider vinegar! ⠀ ⠀ Coconut yoghurt or nut cream. Swirl on top for the ultimate in plate prettiness.⠀ ⠀ A veggie rice crumb like cauliflower, broccoli or pumpkin rice. Blitzed in a food processor, sautéed in coconut oil and a pinch of salt.⠀ ⠀ A flavoured oil. I love homemade paprika oil. Simple heat a littel olive oil. Turn off the heat and drop in some paprika. Drizzle on the soup. Magic!⠀ ⠀ Chopped herbs, chilli flakes and always cracked black pepper.⠀ ⠀ What's your favourtie soup topping? This No Waste Pumpkin, Ginger and Turmeric soup is so god damn tasty and nourishing. Grab the recipe on the blog. Soup topper of the day Pumpkin croutons and watercress!

WELLNESS TIP OF THE DAY✨⠀ ⠀ MAKE TO DO LISTS DO ABLE🖊️⠀ ⠀ I am the queen of to do lists. It's also worth noting I'm also the queen of faffing😂. The problem with my to do lists were that they were like a thesis! Brain dumps of everything in my life I didn't want to forget or wanted to do at some point! ⠀ ⠀ My daily to do list was anything but doable. Each day i'd tick off 1 or 2 things and feel like i'd failed at the end of the day. Then i'd re-write the previous day... and add to it! School girl error ladies🙄. ⠀ ⠀ So i've challenged myself... what would happen if I put just 5 things on my to fo list each day for a week? Prioritising the most important thing first... because my middle name is procrastination😂🤣! ⠀ ⠀ Want to know what happens? Stay tuned this week. Will you be joiningg me in a week of a different 5-a-day... but just as good for your health? Jo x ✨ ⠀ ⠀ #wellness #foodandflatlay #foodphotographer

I adore this Warm Winter Salad, loaded with naturally sweet roasted vegetables, caramalised to perfection in the oven with lots of deep green, peppery, olive oil.

Perfect for batch cooking and taking to work for your week's lunches. #vegan #paleo and #whole30 friendly. Grab the recipe in my bio guys, Jo x⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #salad #grainfree
For the chocolate lover!😍 This skillet chocolate cinnamon brownie is so simple to make. A lot of brownies can end up a bit dry, but not this one! This brownie is slightly crumbly, as a good brownie should be, but also surprisingly fluffy. It’s not too heavy so you don’t feel like you’ve over done it by having a slice… or two!😉 Best served with our simple no-churn keto ice cream or whipped cream. Recipe is on the blog, link in my profile.⠀ ⠀ #ketodietapp #lchf #lowcarb #paleo #keto #ketodiet #ketofam #ketoadapted #KetoDietChallenge #ketodiettracker #ketotracker #fatadapted #ketoapp #ketorecipe #ketodessert #sugarfreelife #ketolife #ketomadesimple #easyketo #dairyfreeketo #modernfoodstories #foodismedicine #jerf #healthyrecipes #cleaneating #healthyfood #chocolatebrownie
The past 5 years have been a roller coaster ride of emotions. From a pit aching low when an autoimmune condition had an all out street party in my body to the most rewarding highs. ⠀ Back then I questioned why life had dealt me such a cruel blow, but now I realise it was to direct me in a new path. One that brings me so much joy and happiness, I literally want to pinch myself everyday. ⠀ ⠀ I'm sat on my suitcase praying it to close 😂 as i get ready to cook an amazing vegan menu for the guests @wildviewretreat and indulge in a week of rebalancing yoga with the amazing @stepinsidewellbeing. Thank you so much Fin and Erika for believing in me, to all my lovely clients who gave me opportunities when i needed a break. I'm truly grateful to each and every one of you and can't wait to keep learning to bring you the very best of me✨. ⠀ ⠀ Maybe you're in a place right now where your health is sub par, where you're stuck doing a job that doesn't excite you? There's a new chapter in your journey coming. Be clear on your goal, believe and you will achieve✨.⠀ ⠀ Here's to never giving up. To have strength, love and sympathy to weather the storms and make your dreams reality. How did you turn something that drained you into something that excites you? Tell me below. Lets inspire together. Jo x ⠀ ⠀ Grab the recipe for my Easy Vegan Blackberry Parfait in my bio. We'll be learning to make easy treats like this in the workshop this week. Stay tuned on instastories😍.⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #refinedsugarfree #diaryfree ⠀ ⠀
Giving up sugar, and that included all fruit too guys for many years, was one of the key things I did to kick start my autoimmune condition into remission. ⠀ Funny thing is once I got over my sugar habit, the craving totally went. And it stayed away. 6 years on I rarely crave sweet things. And that's seriously bonkers considering i thought nothing to demolishing a bag of grapes on my way home from work! ⠀ What I do crave now is fats. Omg I could drink olive oil (i confess i have been known to search out olive oil tastings like most women search out wine🤣) and eat avocados till i turn green🤭. Not a day goes by when i don't get my avocado fix. It keeps my energies high and me feeling satiated. So tonight a roasted carrot and avocado salad with a sundried tomato and toasted pumpkin seed tapenade.⠀ ⠀ A very diff kind of shot for me tonight. What do you guys think? Want to see more of this dark n moody mixed in or prefer the light and airy? Jo x ⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #appetitejournal #beautifulcuisines
I've been given the responsibility of taking care of Molly this week. Molly is my mum's dog. Now this four legged friend eats better than me, home cooked chicken every day so the two very important things i told myself were:⠀ ⠀ 1) Don't lose the dog⠀ 2) Don't kill the dog😂 ⠀ ⠀ This weekend I thought i'd killed the dog🤣. Not on my watch i thought. I ran like a loonatic to the neighbour, next think you know out she bounces like tigger! Turns out lying upside down, legs in the air, asleep with your eyes open is just your everyday pose for a dog... or at least it is for molly😅! ⠀ So today it's been a day of chilling and meal prepping for the week ahead. My Supergreen Broccoli Rice with Sundried Tomatoes and Olives is a great one to make in bulk and take to work in snack pots. Have you tried it yet? Recipe's on the blog and in my bio. jo x⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #poweredbyplants #dairyfree ⠀ ⠀
Legumes and I have this unrequited love affair going on... I love them but they certainly don't love me back😂🤣. I only even dare nibble a chick pea and I blow up like a hot air balloon! Not being one to give up my favourites I like to get creative and make all your traditional grain and legume filled favourites in a way that's kinder to the gut so this is my grain and LEGUME FREE DAHL recipe.⠀ ⠀ Suffer with bloating but love dahl? I'd love to know what you think of this one. Half blitzing it and keeping half kind of chunky gives a similar texture to dahl but without the bloating. What would you like to see next in the Beat The Bloat series? ⠀ ⠀ Recipes NEW on the blog and in my bio today, Jo x⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #AIP #poweredbyplants
When i'm in a hurry this #vegan #keto Oatmeal is one of my favourtie things to whip up. It's a firm favourtie for autumn when warming cinnamon lines the lips of many!

Jo x⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #refinedsugarfree #diaryfree ⠀ ⠀
WELLNESS TIP OF THE DAY⠀ On my journey back to health, I learnt to BE A FIGHTER. No not ur get in a ring and take on Muhammad Ali kinda fighter as lets be honest guys these skinny chicken wings aren’t going to take down many 😂 but I did learn that only you can be the change in your health.⠀ ⠀ What often comes as the toughest challenge when physically your health takes a turn for the worst is the mental strength to keep fighting. I was pulled in so many directions, diagnosed and undiagnosed, thought I was safe to eat a certain food then I wasn’t, I didn’t know if I was coming or going.⠀ ⠀ If i’d have listened to the doctors i’d be on a lifetime of immuno-suppresents. Now i’ve healed my gut, am in remission and manage with a #grainfree , low gi sugar and #dairyfree diet alone. What I did learn was to push to see every specialist i’d read came highly recommended, pushed for every test to rule out the sinister and gave myself the space to try the next chapter of my healing journey. You can’t rush this. ⠀ ⠀ For every one of you wonderful souls out there who are struggling right now, please dedicate time each week to keep learning and fighting. ⠀ ⠀ Recipe for this NOURISHING SPICED CAULIFLOWER RICE, TURMERIC AND KALE SOUP is on the blog and in my bio. Healing hugs, Jo x ⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #aip #guthealing
Thermo wars has begun in the Harding house🤣. In the blue corner we have me, layered in a hoodie, dressing gown and a beany hat whilst sweating it out in the red corner, Mr B, board shorts and t-shirt, thinking it’s still summer😂.⠀ ⠀ I'm resorting to a comforting bowl of baked pears, naturally caramelised in the spices of Autumn - vanilla and cinnamon. Sugar and sweetener free. ⠀ Grab the recipe on the blog and in my bio. Has thermo wars begun in your house yet or is it Ice wars for all you aussie friends!? Jo x⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #sugarfree #diaryfree ⠀ ⠀
NEW RECIPE✨⠀ Good Morning! This Hazelnut Crunch Vegan Blackberry Parfait has to be one of my speediest recipes guys and is one of my favourites. It's great if you need a quick healthy breakfast recipe or an on the fly vegan desert.⠀ ⠀ I love to make these in little sealable jars and take them to work or the movies! I know i'm that sad, I take my own snack pots to the cinema, but it's the best way to stay healthy and not be tempted with all the sugary popcorn and goodness knows what's in them nachos😉. ⠀ ⠀ Sweetened simply with low GI berries so are paleo, keto, whole30 and #iqs friendly. For an Autoimmune Paleo version, simply leave off the nuts, or as I do, soak them overnight, dry them off on kitchen paper and roast them. This helps remove the phytic acid making nuts more digestible.⠀ ⠀ Recipe's new on the blog today and in my bio. Ready in under 10 minutes, who's in? Jo x⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #sugarfree #diaryfree ⠀ ⠀

I've got a new recipe brewing in my brain and I need your help😉. ⠀ ⠀ The beginnings of a new delicata pumpkin recipe for Autumn. I'm thinking a sesame, shelled hemp seed crumb drizzled in a toasted sesame oil, ginger, coconut aminos and lime dressing. 😘⠀ ⠀ But which would you prefer? Cut as... ⠀ A) Pumpkin fries ⠀ or ⠀ B) Pumpkin skins / boats (in other words half roasted mini squash's🤣)⠀ ⠀ Let me know A or B in the comments below. I just can't decide today!

Some people say they're from a certain place but the truth is i've moved around a lot in my life. For me home is where Mr B is ... and where my slouch pants live of course🤣! But it's this love for travel and try new things attitude that's heavily influenced my palate choices today. I totally love exploring new healthy dressing combinations or how to 25 ways with kale😝! ⠀ ⠀ This salad combines the earthy flavours of kale, massaged .. because we all know it tastes better this way😚, with shredded sprouts and a new love pairing of lime tahini. ⠀ ⠀ Are you a summer or winter salad kinda gal? Jo x ⠀ ⠀ INGREDIENTS (serves 3 as a side)⠀ 200g sprouts⠀ 200g kale ⠀ 2 tbsp coconut oil @coconutmerchant ⠀ 50g chestnuts (optional)⠀ 50g nut cheese (or feta if you prefer)⠀ 3tbsp flaked almonds⠀ 1 avocado ⠀ 1 tbsp sesame seeds⠀ ⠀ DRESSING⠀ 2 tbsp tahini @meridianfoods ⠀ 1 tbsp EVOO (+a little water to thin if you prefer)⠀ Juice of 1/2 lime⠀ Pinch of salt⠀ 1 tbsp coconut aminos @coconutmerchant ⠀ ⠀ METHOD⠀ Heat the coconut oil in a pan. Saute the sprouts for 2 - 3 minutes or until slightly soft. Add the kale and saute until it wilts. Add chestnuts. Mix the dressing. Season to taste. Toss or drizzle dressing on the sprout mix and top with flaked almonds, avocado, sesame and nut cheese.⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #poweredbyplants #veganfood ⠀ ⠀

WELLNESS TIP OF THE DAY🌱⠀ ⠀ When putting my #autoimmunedisease into remission naturally, I learnt you can massively improve your health and happiness by simplifying your life. I guess you could say this simplicity carried through to my minimalist food photography style too😉! ⠀ ⠀ When I was sick I desperately wanted to be 'fixed' in a timeframe of yesterday. When we have sub par health we block so much, the good and the bad, in an effort just to function. But guys, healing takes time. You are on a journey of self discovery, improvement and rediscovering self love. It's important to tune in and listen to your gut instinct. ⠀ ⠀ My journey so far has been inspired by so many complementary therapies. Some didn't do much for me, or perhaps in hindsight I wasn't open enough to receive their healing powers, others I found rung true, like kinesiology, but what took me to the next level of healing? Doing more of what I enjoyed🤩. ⠀ ⠀ What one thing will you do for yourself tomo that makes you feel good? Jo x⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #aip #dairyfree ⠀ ⠀

A comforting bowl of homemade Broccoli and Coconut Soup. I'm not sure which is more stressful... the expedition to Ikea on a Sunday or attempting to put together their flat pack furniture😂🤣. ⠀ ⠀ I've literally just put a whole shelving unit together for my props and am left with one random bolt!😬 ⠀ ⠀ This hug in a mug is soothing and calming. The extra bolt was a spare, right guys?! 😧Jo x⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #aip #comfortfood

NEW RECIPE ⠀ Hey guys, do you want to know my secret on how to achieve the fluffiest Broccoli Rice every time?😚 ⠀ ⠀ Over the years i’ve tried lots of ways to prepare vegetable rices; from raw, to stir fried and roasted, but without a shadow of a doubt my favourite method lies with the three S’s… Steam, Squeeze and Saute🤗.⠀ ⠀ Head on over to the blog (link's in my bio) to find out what on earth i'm talking about😂🤣. And to get the recipe for this vegan SUPERGREEN BROCCOLI RICE with SUN DRIED TOMATOES and BASIL DRESSING.⠀ ⠀ Using my method makes the Broccoli Rice super fluffy, easier to digest and doesn’t require lots of heavy oil. ⠀ ⠀ Who's up for giving something new a try?

STYLE I SHOOT I STORIES⠀ When it comes to beautiful food styling guys, your colour wheel is your best friend. Get to know it😉. ⠀ ⠀ Whilst i'm a big fan of #eattherainbow colour in a dish, style can also be achieved with minimalism and 1 main colour choice. Think about your hues and how they piece together. Like in this podded pea shot. I love the simplicity of it, what do you think? I feel calmer already😍 Jo x ⠀ ⠀ #modernfoodstories #foodphotography #foodstyling
WELLNESS TIP OF THE DAY⠀ ⠀ WHITE SPACE FOR YOUR LIFE😊⠀ Just like a brilliant piece of design, white space is beautiful. It’s clean, it’s calming, it’s essential. Your life is the same. Make sure you plan white space into your day. Literally block out in your diary WHITE SPACE! I guarantee you’ll get there are breathe the biggest sigh of relief. ⠀ ⠀ I am the queen of faffing, if it were an olympic sport i’d win gold🤣. When I don’t have space, i’m creatively blocked. I get really annoyed at why I can’t style the a picture i’m happy with. That’s because as humans we go about filling in every tiny pocket of our day like it’s some kind of painting by numbers. ⠀ ⠀ STOP, paint some white and see how much better you feel for it. Even this Celeriac Rice and Roast Carrot Salad with Cashew Cheese feels inviting thanks to white space, don't you think?😊 Recipe's on the blog and in my bio guys.
