Blueberry Galette & Some Exciting News!


I am sorry I have been a little absent from this blog in the past few weeks. I usually post a new recipe most weekends but have been busy doing other things, meeting friends, enjoying the warm weather and just relaxing. I know quite a few of you have been wanting this recipe for a while and I have kept it under my hat for a time like now when I have not had time to develop new recipes. So I hope you forgive me and enjoy this new blueberry galette recipe. It is a bit rustic and 100% delicious. (Husband approved)

I have also some great news to share with you guys so read below past the recipe to find out more...




Blueberry Galette Recipe:

I have made this recipe a few times as it is so simple, easy and requires very little ingredients. I am sure you could swap the buckwheat flour for another wheat or gluten free flour. This recipe is also gluten free, paleo and vegan.



  • 1 cup of buckwheat flour;
  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil;
  • 3 tbsp of maple syrup
  • 1 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries; 
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees;
  2. Mix the buckwheat flour, liquid coconut oil and maple syrup to make into a dough with your hands;
  3. Mix it well and then chill for 30 min.
  4. Roll the dough with a rolling pin flat to a big round or oval shape. 
  5. Place the blueberries in the middle and fold back the edges of the galette to form a galette shape.
  6. Cook in the oven at 180 for 20 min.



LOVING EARTH #FEATUREDFOODIE

I have some exciting news to share with you today. I have won a Recipe competition with Loving Earth (a health food online shop) and would be sharing 5 new healthy recipes on the Loving Earth website. I also got 2 of my existing recipes featured in their ebook. (My raw chocolate orange slice and my vegan chocolate cupcakes). I am so excited (and also nervous!) to be doing recipes for them! My recipes will be featured in December this year as  the #featuredfoodie of the month. It is my favourite month of the year with Christmas, my birthday, family, time off work and summer! So this is perfect! I am also very grateful to get such exposure of my recipes. I got so many page visits on the day they announced me as the winner. It’s crazy!

So stay tuned for the new healthy recipes that I will be sharing on their website and also on my blog in December. In the meantime I might not post as many recipes as I need to develop all new 5 recipes by mid November so I am going to be busy in the kitchen! You can always browse my archives for some cooking inspiration and I hope this delicious healthy blueberry galette recipes makes up for it too.

REBRANDING

Lately I have felt a pull to change my blog and brand name. I felt that I had outgrown this blog design and my heart was not in the Power of Wellness name and brand anymore. I also use a different name on Instagram (@healthywifeperth) where I have the biggest presence and felt it would be confusing for viewers. I have been thinking of a new name for the past few months and after some internal reflection and advice from some lovely people I have decided to change my brand name from Power of Wellness/ healthywifeperth to Healthy French Wife.

I feel that the name Healthy French Wife represents me better than Power Of Wellness. It is more original, more feminine, soft and I believe it is more “me”. I kept half of my Instagram name but decided to remove Perth and add in French. I am currently living in Perth but who knows if we move city or country down the track. I also felt that a lot of people didn’t know I was French and it is a huge part of who I am.

I will be getting a new logo and blog template in the coming weeks and will move this blog to a new domain name. Hopefully it will all happen without a glitch and people visiting the old domain name will be directed to the new domain! What an adventure! I work in digital marketing in my day job but I never do website design or moving domain names! So I hope this won't be too difficult. 

I hope you will all continue to support me in my journey and I have some special recipes waiting to be shared once the new design & name is launched!
