What’s in the box?

I’m going to be very clear. Sitting here writing this, I’m digging into my lunch of paprika and grand padono crusted zucchini chips with harrissa yogurt, so when I talk about what a normal lunch is or not, you get the context. There is no such thing, or at least not in my world. I […] Read more…

Dear Pre – New York Me

I’m sharing a very special Thanksgiving post, just over a year after I posted these protein donuts before I jetsetted over to the Big Apple. Some people count the days between birthdays as ‘years’, while to many it’s a January to January thing. Pretty sure for the rest of my life I’ll be counting them […] Read more…

Vegans beware

  There’s been a lot of hoo haa about gelatin lately. Vegans beware, I’m talking about the benefits of eating those bones and how you can get your fix without going all caveman. Those paleo converts have been on the gelatin bandwagon for years now, labelling the stuff a ‘pure protein’ and guzzling the powder […] Read more…

Around that fire, we grew tamer

The power we have as consumers and eaters is consuming. A few weekends ago I was lucky enough to attend the Australian food bloggers conference, Eat Drink Blog.  One of the presentations was from Brenda Fawdon from Mondo Organics in Brisbane. Brenda talked a lot about of the importance of being aware of how far […] Read more…

Choose your choice

I choose to live by choice not by chance. I read this statement in a book recently in a source which I have seemed to have misplaced, and can’t quite get it out of my head. When I was a little kid, I loved the idea of chance. I was raised with Christian values and […] Read more…

Double protein

I’d be the world’s worst vegetarian. Sure, I love a green smoothie as much as the next nutrient junkie, but if a meal doesn’t have animal protein, it just doesn’t feel like a meal. I have a serious protein abuse problem. I’d like to shrug it off as a sign of fuelling my body with […] Read more…

Are foodies the least sustainable of all?

Images: Brothl – Sean Fennessy for The Design Files. We throw a lot of buzz words around in the health food world, sustainability being one with a lot of weight behind it. Sustainable food, and in particular sustainable food restaurants are making waves at the moment in Australia. I saw an interesting article on the […] Read more…

Morning rituals

I’m a typical morning person. I rise before 5am, head to the gym before it gets super congested with girls with unnecessary makeup and guys with bigger egos than weights, then come home to enjoy a relaxed breakfast with a generous side of morning rituals. You know the ones. Those small tasks that make you […] Read more…

What’s your favourite?

 Love languages, they’re tricky business. I’ve been reading an interesting book by Gary Chapman about the different ways people express their love and how to learn to talk other people’s languages. Sure, the book is heavily focused on how to express heartfelt commitment to your spouse (to be clear I have not suddenly gotten married) […] Read more…

Sharing a meal

How often do you share a meal with your nearest and dearest and not ‘share it’? Last year I visited our family’s old farmhouse and was mesmerised by the original battered chipboard dining table in the kitchen, covered in stains, weathered patches where high chairs and too hot pans had left their memories over the […] Read more…
