I can't explain why this bread is so good, and why it is so life-changing but when there are so many things you "can't" eat, it's refreshing when you come across something so delicious and fulfilling that you enjoy making and sharing! I take this name from its creator, a long time favourite Blog of … Continue reading Life-changing ‘bread’
As I have discussed here, I have been on a journey where I 'quit sugar' over two years ago. Since then I can't believe how much better I feel, not trapped in the sugar highs and lows of life. I'm so much less 'foggy' in the head and have also lost inches all over. I … Continue reading Sweet Treats (sugar free!)
When my mum died, one of the things I missed the most was her incredible meals. She is always remembered for her cooking, her understanding of flavours and of special family rituals. Whether it was a special occasion like a birthday or just a regular mid-week meal, the food was always restaurant quality. One of … Continue reading Cooking for the Soul & Recipe

There are so many amazing flavours that make a meal delicious, and once you discover fresh chilli, lemongrass, fresh herbs, nuts, oils, spices, coconut milk, vanilla pods, and you have … Continue reading Kale Pesto

I love them as coconut pieces slightly browned and added to yoghurt, or thrown in my porridge and into sugar free sweet treats, and I love using coconut oil in cooking. I've had lots of people ask … Continue reading All things coconutty…
I've taken some time out from writing of late, to do the title of this blog, some nurturing of my own dear Mum. Since her diagnosis last year, she has undergone six months of chemotherapy and then three months ago has had the courage to undergo a revolutionary bone marrow transplant. It's not an easy … Continue reading Mother Nurture
About a month ago I was lucky enough to spend one glorious week at Gwinganna resort in the Gold Coast Hinterland with my amazing Mum. It’s called a ‘Lifestyle’ retreat, but known lovingly as a health retreat by friends and converts alike. Gwinganna is a special special place. If you find yourself ever … Continue reading Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat. Life-changing.
