Stress Aging You?
Stress—just reading the word can hit a nerve

degrees Fahrenheit or 25 degrees Celsius). Undress
the baby completely and if the weather is cold or
humid cover the areas of the baby's body that are
not being massaged. Put the baby on a soft surface
so your baby will feel comfortable and secure. Keep
some little pillows handy. It is a good idea to use

florets from 1 cauliflower
3/4 cup almond flour
1 tablespoon dried oregano
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 organic eggs, beaten
Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F and line a
baking tray with baking paper.
Coarsely chop the cauliflower, place in food
processor and blend until it is a fine rice-like
texture and place in a mixing bowl. Add the
almond meal, oregano and seasoning and mix with
your hands. Make a well in the centre and add
the eggs. Use your hands to pull the dry
ingredients towards the middle until everything
is combined and you can shape it into a ball.
Transfer to the baking paper and form into a
pizza base by flattening the dough with your
hands. Depending on preference, you could make 2
small bases or one large. We find the small
bases work better and cook more evenly.
Pre-bake for 25 minutes or until golden.

Remove the crust from the oven. Cover it with
