Single-Serve Vegan Protein Cookies

Single-serve cookies

Trying to bake with vegan protein powder has always been a bit hit or miss for me. (Oh, and if you’re wondering why this omnivore cares whether her protein is vegan or not, this will explain it.) I’m usually left with something that tastes great… but is liquid in the middle. Or it looks pretty […]

Flourless Dark Chocolate Brownies

If you caught the juicy comments in my post about sugar substitutes you might be thinking “hmm… I thought you were advocating cutting back on the sweet treats, eh Cat?” Well… yes and no. I DO think there is a ridiculous misconception that you can ‘healthify’ a classic sweet treat like brownies or muffins or cookies… […]

Mini Paleo Egg + Bacon McMuffins #IQS

Mini Paleo Egg + Bacon McMuffins

Breakfast just doesn’t come often enough. Once a day? Such a shame. Brunch makes twice, which is more like it. Personally the ideal day involves brinner too. My usual breakfasts rotate between chocolatey eggy zoats (high carb days) or my japanese-style breakfast (low carb days.) But when I received Sarah Wilson’s new Healthy Breakfast Cookbook, I […]

Gluten Free Chocolate Yule Log

Gluten free chocolate yule log

I honestly think I get more excited for Christmas every year. Sure, as a kid I was excited for presents but the essence of Christmas – all the preparation, the lights, the tinsel… that is a recent obsession of mine. Example of unnecessary excitement: I nearly peed myself when my flatmate put the wreath up. […]

Chocolate Chia MUGG Muffin For One

Paleo Muffin

I suck at following instructions. This week I’ve had my personal trainer try (as best he could bless him) to teach me how to clean and press a kettlebell. I’ve also attended a half day course ‘Crochet for Beginners’ at my local adult learning centre. In both cases, I gave it my all. But I […]

Cat Cookies v2.0 (More Chocolatey Than Ever!)

Low-carb cat cookies

I don’t bake for pleasure. Does that make me a bad blogger? A bad potential grandma for sure. I bake for practical reasons. To make others happy. To have something to snack on that isn’t as boring as fruit or as expensive and crap-filled as buying pre-made baked goods. Oh, and of course, to instagram. […]

5 Paleo Christmas Treats With 5 Ingredients Or Less

Excuse me while I have a it’s-less-than-a-week till C-Day freak out. I had my last minute shopping planned in my diary for the week. I also had other fun festivities pencilled in – finally putting up the Christmas tree, making egg nog for the first time, and finding an elaborate baked Christmas treat to bring […]

Cat-Shaped Cookies (Gluten-free, Sugar-free, Egg-free)

When I bought the novelty cat-shaped cookie cutter, I didn’t really have a plan for it. Other than… all my cookies will now be cat-shaped. And may be my eggs too, if that works.   When I bought these soaked and dried ‘activated’ almonds, I didn’t really have a plan for them, either. I love […]

3 Ingredient Fruity Flapjacks

If you’ve seen much of the edibles I feature on the blog, you may have noticed the lack of grains. Oats, rye, barley… minimal. Rice, buckwheat… occasionally (thanks to my love for Japanese starches.) I could go into my stance on gluten and carbs in general, but that’s another post. On the odd occasion, I […]

Eat Cake For Breakfast and Fight Wrinkles?

Before I begin… can I wish someone a happy birthday? This blog! Cat Food is Good For You turned the ripe ol’ age of one today. Aye, she’s come a long way since the days of spinning cat head… It’s been a hoot. More than once, I’ve questioned where I want the blog to go, […]
