  1. Hi ladies looks delicious. Just wondering if you can leave out the cauliflower…only because I don’t have any and want to make it straightaway with sweet potato on the side.

  3. What is tomato passata? Don’t have the time to make bone broth, can you purchase broth? Love your site, many of our weekly meals are from you guys. I was on the sugar, paleo and other bandwagons over the past 3 years and now with a baby have found that your meals are perfect without going too far obsessive about grainfree, sugar free and paleo. However that being said, I am grain free and try to reduce sugar and eat real food. Also loved your blog on female functions, I was like you guys and got things back on track and now have a beautiful little Bub. Thank you thank you thank you, keep the recipes coming. Love long time follower xox

    Aw yay, congrats on your Bub! 🙂 Very exciting! You can make tomato passata (we will share a recipe soon!) But you can also buy organic tomato passata if you don’t have time! Just check the pasta sauces section, it will only include tomatoes and maybe herbs/spices/onion. Let us know how you go! Thanks for your feedback, means so much! xoxox
