Foundations. When cooking, gardening and caring for a family is the most familiar, comforting and routine thing in the world. Without this guy, none of it would have been possible. He's a quiet, shy and unassuming tradie. He is a powerhouse and loves his children with a pure and graceful heart. No job is beneath him. I love his down to earth approach to the meaning of life. "Gaps is a two-person job - both parents need to be involved in the kitchen, " @emporioorganico founder Kitsa Yanotis explained to James and i at the beginning of our Gaps journey. How right she was. "The more involved both parents can be, the greater the success for the child they are trying to support," Dr Natasha Campbell McBride told me as we sat for a one-hour long face to face interview. The take home? The gift for us? This picture here, captured innocently by our eldest daughter, is one of most common and truthful sights in our home. Hold on to each other. Even when it's hard. Cook, garden and eat together. It is one of the most revolutionary acts I can think of in these times. #dadsareawesome #cookingwithkids #cookfromscratch #gapsdiet #gut #guthealth #jerf #thealchemycookbook #paleo #aip #scd #allergies #autism #foodasmedicine #foodintolerance #histamineintolerance

Easy chocolate mousse. I loved making this five minute wonder with our eldest daughter. We rode together to @ravenscreekfarm to buy our eggs this morning. Looks like the berries are almost ready! The @schulzorganicdairy cream featured on top is a product I trust but for those needing #dairyfree just leave it off the top and use a dairy free chocolate. Found it @peachs.torquay. Always gorgeous. #caterer #homecook #cookingwithkids #cookingclasses #chocolatemousse #dessert #quickandeasy

When your kids have been sick two weeks straight, cranky, fighting, and the house looks like shite...but then you look up and there is one solitary corner that remains unscathed. Flowers bought for me last week by my love from @peachs.torquay. Great to see they are still going strong. #thealchemycookbook remains in pride of place at the front counter. Go check it out, buy someone you love some flowers and check out the best moes in town. #torquay #greatoceanroad #geelong #janjuc #homeoftheyoungmanmoe #glutenfree #gut #grainfree #fermentedfoods #refinedsugarfree #organic #local

Our beautiful girl. Tonsillitis, shortness of breath, a virus, antibiotics and home from school. A walk in the garden always cheers us both up. Found these passionfruit flowers to wonder over and turn into tea. Combining with fresh tulsi leaves, lemon balm and thyme. The flowers Led me to some interesting reading on passionfruit peel and peer reviewed science on it's ability to assist with asthma. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/19083404/. #wisewomantradition #passionfruit #gardening #herbalism #permaculture

Borage flower infused Apple cider vinegar. Was great dreaming up possibilities with the fabulous @benshawpermaculture today. Check him out to get the permi low down. Wanna see credentials? All you need to do is look at his beautifully designed space on the bellarine peninsula at Basil's Farm. I can't wait to coax him #torquay way. #alchemy #gardening #permaculture #biodynamic #grow #sustainability #environment #foodasmedicine #guthealth #microbiome #herbalism #borage #wisewomantradition #inheritance
