What a start to Spring in Sydney… first we were teased with glorious sunshine, and now it feels as if it’s Winter all over again! This salad is sort of the best of both worlds; warm, nutty freekeh paired with crunchy Spring vegetables. Sure, when it’s cold, we crave warm, slowly cooked food more regularly, but for the times you can’t …

I find my best recipe inspiration from overseas holidays– it’s a tough price to pay, but I’m happy to oblige for the sake of a new delicious dish for both you and me. I spent the most of May visiting New York and Los Angeles; both places where the plant-based/vegan/organic/healing/sugar-free/healthy food scene is truly alive. Looking for a dairy-free, low …

Natural and herbal medicine get a bad rap in the Western world, though much like Western medicine itself, everything has its place. Pharmaceutical companies release drugs for every ailment under the sun and run clinical trials for a few years to test their efficacy, until they’re eventually shared and sold. Natural and herbal medicine concerns plants, herbs and weeds, and …

My Mum hates eggplant. She has refused to eat it after a bad experience of eating eggplant antipasto style– too much olive oil. If you can remember my last post, growing up what my Mum didn’t like informed what I too didn’t like, plus more. The list was extensive; non-Cadbury chocolate, eggplant, olives, white chocolate, speckly bananas… I don’t remember when …

Eating healthily doesn’t automatically transpire into only eating salads. Ironically though, I think I could, (and most often do) eat salads for every meal. Salads aren’t just about eating vegetables, nor are they bland. In fact, if you like flavour, salads are a great because in some ways, you’re just throwing ingredients together in a bowl and enjoying the combination …

Sunday morning– The end of a (hopefully) well-rested weekend is one of the only days you can justify spending thirty minutes making breakfast, and another fifteen, washing up all the pots you used to make it. I for one, enjoy the extra sleep on a regular weekday and will make a simple smoothie or quick chia pudding for breakfast instead. …
