My job is to reframe the perspective that excluding some things from our diet can be a bad thing. I can assure you that the new version will seem more abundant than the old.

This is where recipes such as this beautiful pasta dish come into their own. From the surface you see the creamy sauce, the layers of divine flavour, the textures & the unadulterated enjoyment this combination will bring. If you look a little more closely however you’ll also see that this is naturally free from gluten, dairy, sugar, pro-inflammatory ingredients & supports liver function.
