Chocolate Chip Cookies (eggless)

Chocolate Chip Cookies (eggless)

Chocolate Chip Cookies (eggless) Makes 15-16 small to medium sized cookies – recipe adapted from Spice Up the Curry.   Don’t let the ‘eggless’ part fool you. This is one of the best soft and chewy, chocolate chip cookie recipes I’ve ever made. I have been baking the odd choc-chip cookie for the better part of five...
Recipe: Bircher Muesli

Recipe: Bircher Muesli

Bircher Muesli is a breakfast that has been disappearing off the menus of many cafes. Such a shame but the good new is that is so, so good and easy to make.

Travel: Wellness and Cooking in Rishikesh

  At the beginning of 2014, I started a path of healing my body using food.  I cut caffeine, refined sugar, soy, dairy, gluten and processed foods from my diet to nourish my body to wellness.  India had been calling me for some time so it seemed the natural next step in my journey to attend Stuart...

Review: Bagelicious

  Anyone who has seen an episode of Seinfeld will know about New York’s obsession with the humble bagel and along with pretzels and doughnuts, it’s one of those must-try food experiences for any visitor there. Although Glick’s Bakery has been baking them fresh each week since the 1960s, over the past few years bagels...
Review: Green Press

Review: Green Press

Hot on the heels of our big sister cities around the world, Melbourne is getting serious about real, healthy, whole food. Yes it’s been possible to get a green smoothie or quinoa salad on café menus for some time, but what we’re talking about now is pressed juices, raw salads, sugar free sweets, nut and...
Easter Eggs Recipe (Raw)

Easter Eggs Recipe (Raw)

  Originally, I thought it might be nice to have a healthy recipe for Easter Eggs, but then how are Easter Eggs what they are without the chocolate? Hence, the addition of some coconut cream chocolate ganache to make them a little more festive! The basic recipe for the eggs are similar to my Raw...

Review: Ruyi

Review: Ruyi

I’ve never been a fan of Chinese food (actually technically that’s not true, one of my old friends is half-Chinese and his Mum always makes amazing dishes), my only Chinese restaurant experiences had been bowls of gluggy, MSG-filled, deep fried food. Before Ruyi.  This place has completely changed my perspective. After hearing about the Hecker...
Recipe: Antioxidant Smoothie

Recipe: Antioxidant Smoothie

Very close friends of DC’s have just launched a new range of superfood boosted protein products and I for one am very excited! Normally, when I even hear the words ‘protein’ I immediately think of protein powder and then I shudder as the image of a high weight low rep gym junkie meat head pops...
