This is a guest recipe from Pete Evan’s new book Bubba Yum Yum.


Paleo Way Bubba Yum Yum Cover


With the view that all children should experience the best possible start to life, chef Pete Evans joined forces with nutritionist Helen Padarin and blogger Charlotte Carr to produce Bubba Yum Yum The Paleo Way for New Mums, Babies and Toddlers.


The nourishing book is full of 80 healthy, nutritional recipes for little ones from preconception, through breastfeeding and onto their first foods. Available in 51 territories on iBooks for $14.99, the book has become so popular it went to number one within a few hours of its global release.


Having experienced the positive outcomes of eating a diet of nourishing wholefoods firsthand, Charlotte, Helen and Pete are passionate about sharing advice and information with families who may want to explore a healthier lifestyle for their family. “We want to build and nourish a generation of children being brought up on real wholefoods – foods that are in their true form, just like our parents had, before everything became processed,” explain the authors.


Bubba Yum Yum The Paleo Way is filled with extensive information on leading a healthier, wholefood-based lifestyle including explanations on why we need more healthy fats in our diet, where to source the best local produce, how to make your own natural remedies and how to nourish your body during pregnancy.


All recipes in the book are dairy and gluten free and devoid of refined sugar, grains and legumes. They instead endeavour to include ingredients that are organic, unprocessed and sustainably produced. For more info about the book and The Paleo Way head to www.thepaleoway.com


Kids love zoodles and what a great way to get them to eating greens. They are bouncy, playful and great for developing their hand-eye coordination. You can serve these raw or lightly cooked.

*   There are several kinds of spiralisers available both in kitchenware shops and online. They transform zucchini into beautiful spaghetti.

*   If you grow your own herbs, allow your children to pick a few. Show them how to wash the herbs and prepare them for the blender.

*   If your little ones find garlic to be a bit too intense, simply cook it off first in some coconut oil, or even with some bacon.





  • Method :
    1. To make dinosaur sauce, place all the ingredients except the oil in a blender and process until combined. Gradually add the oil until the sauce reaches the desired consistency. (We love ours thick and creamy but add more oil if you prefer it thinner).
    2. To make the zoodles, heat the oil in a frying pan over the medium-high heat. Add the zucchini and saute for 1-2 minutes, or until it is just soft (don’t overcook). Add the dinosaur sauce and toss well. Continue to cook for another 30 seconds, or until heated through. Spoon into bowls and serve.
