Raw Zucchini ‘Noodles’ & Thai Coriander Pesto

I’ve already written about the Raw Food Revolution in a previous blog post and it looks like it’s here to stay! I think that can only be a good thing, especially for those who don’t like to cook. Think about it, raw food involves no cooking so for those who don’t have time to cook or don’t […]

Coconut Milk & Quinoa Porridge

It’s come to that time of the year where I wake up and never want to get out of bed, it’s just too cold! Unfortunately for me I live in a house where my bedroom may as well be made out of cardboard as there is absolutely no insulation and some days it’s even warmer […]

Super Food Smoothies

Mango with Coconut Sticky Rice

For as long as I can remember I’ve always yearned for the exotic, something less familiar. As a kid I never dug domestic cats and dogs, I wanted a white tiger as a pet. When all of my friends went to schoolies on the Gold Coast, I chose to live with a family in rural […]

Lamingtons! Lamingtons! Lamingtons!

Lamingtons are about as Australian as you get. You can tell this because when you type the word lamington it is not recognised as a word and comes up in spell check. As today is Australia Day I thought I’d get all patriotic and bake a bunch of these sweet squares of sponge cake coated […]

Easy Peasy Christmas Treats

Christmas can be a stressful time of year for the adults of this world who have to purchase and wrap presents for a thousand people, decorate the Christmas tree, make an elf costume for the school play, entertain guests with homemade canapes and prepare for the holidays! Of course it needn’t be so stressful, and […]
