The Perfect Bircher (Vegan)

I made up a word – Supersessibles. Accessible super foods. Because whilst all those exotic foods, powders, berries and spices that line the health food store shelves are alluring with their long list of nutritional claims (and to be fair, some of them are actually quite worthwhile taking!), the hefty price tag makes it something […]

Coconut Rough

Rainy Saturday mornings are my favourite. Hot chai. Blankets. Paper. The perfect end to a busy week. I have an easy recipe to share today – a somewhat hybridised Coconut Rough. Rather than your traditional chocolate-coconut combination, I’ve thrown in some organic fine oats (with great success!). I’ve been loving my oats recently – three […]

Perfectionism, and a Raw Feijoa + Kiwifruit Cake for Mother’s Day

I have a confession to make: I am currently suffering from a chronic case of perfectionism. And until I can work through it and move past it, all I can do is lay it on the table and say I’m stuck in a sticky web of my own doing. You see, I’ve been trying to […]

Healthy ANZAC Biscuits – Sugar Free

It seems fitting to make some yummy ANZAC biscuits for this year’s ANZAC Centenary on April 25th. I’m hoping to make it to the Dawn service this year too, to pay respects to all our Kiwi and Aussie soldiers who fought and died in Gallipoli. I remember our dear old Uncle Reg, and all his […]

Homemade Comfrey Ointment for Bruises, Bumps and Scrapes Part 2

About 6 weeks ago I prepared a herbal infused oil, with organic olive oil and dried comfrey leaf and root. Today, I’m sharing how to turn that lovely, rich green infused oil into a healing, antibacterial, antiseptic salve to keep in your home apothecary. Health and wellness extends far beyond the diet, so I love […]

Healthy Hot Cross Buns

Holy sheeshkabob. Gluten free, dairy free, egg free, refined sugar free Hot Cross Buns. I don’t normally eat bread, mostly because there are far healthier options (gluten free whole grains like quinoa, cooked simply in a little vege stock – yum!). But it’s Easter. And there are buns galore. And I want one. So, disclaimer […]

Homemade Comfrey Ointment for Bruises, Bumps and Scrapes Part 1

Some of the best remedies come from common weeds. I have a weed called Comfrey growing in my garden – she’s actually quite a beautiful plant – large, soft fuzzy leaves, and purple flowers that curl into a spiral. Comfrey is also called knitbone or boneset – giving away one of its therapeutic uses – helping broken […]

Olive leaf for viral infections + Avocado and Herb Stuffed Mushrooms

It’s been one of those full on weeks and I’ve been feeling a little bit less than great lately thanks to an annoying viral infection. Oh yeah, that’s right, I’m not a superhuman… Funny how such a small critter like a virus can humble you! It’s just a signal to slow down and amp up […]
