We caught up with co-founder Camilla for three burning questions alongside her exclusive recipes for a Turmeric Latte and Sprouted Spelt Pancakes.
Sprouted Spelt Pancakes
115g unsalted butter, melted
2 ripe bananas
2 large eggs
2 tbsp honey
2tsp vanilla extract
270g Rude Health Sprouted Spelt Flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
coconut oil/butter, for cooking
bananas and honey, for serving
In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond milk, butter, bananas, eggs, honey and vanilla. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the sprouted spelt flour, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the centre and pour in the wet mixture. Stir until just combined.
Heat a few teaspoons of coconut oil or butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Once it is hot, ladle the pancake batter (about 4 tablespoons at a time) onto the pan.
Cook each pancake for about 2 minutes, until bubbles form over the top and the bottom edges are light brown. Flip the pancake over and cook for about 1 more minute, until the golden. Repeat with remaining batter.
Serve with sliced bananas and honey and delve in!
Golden Milk Latte

400ml of Rude Health Almond Drink
2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp ginger powder

Sprinkling of black pepper
Pour milk into a pan then add the other ingredients. Heat the golden milk gently, stirring as you go. Just as it starts to bubble, take it off the heat and froth using a hand frother.
Three Burning Questions
Describe your morning routine?
My alarm goes off at 6.30am during the week, and the children are my alarm at the weekend. Breakfast is a big deal in our household and it gets a half hour slot in the morning routine. At the moment we are starting the day with Rude Health Sprouted Porridge served with pecans, banana, maple syrup & cream. After breakfast I send the children to school and then get ready for the office. It’s a short ride by bicycle to the office along the river, which acts as a mini-meditation to help make the switch from home to Rude Health.
Your favourite workout and why?
My favourite way to wind-down after work is dancing like nobody can see (they can’t) in the kitchen while cooking something nourishing. When the weather is cold I am all about stews and casseroles.
Number one wellness tip?
Do what works for you - I am not a gym person, but cycling to work and dancing make me happy. The same goes for food - don’t deny yourself indulgences, just don’t have them every day, you may even enjoy them more if they really are a once a week treat.
