My sweet and sour kiwi fruit gelatin goobs

Posted on October 16th, 2014

I’ve been on a gigantic gelatin journey the past few weeks…tweaking and finessing different ways to stir up this amazing healing product (for guts, nails, inflammation) into convenient snacks and breakfast foods.

Last week I posted my coffee almond gummy squares recipe and previously shared My latest gut health obsession: gelatin post. Given the interest, I figured I’d share another recipe…my favourite combo to date, and one that some say can’t be done.

Yep, in my obsessed reading on the subject, I came across gelatin devotees who somehow think the acid in kiwi stops the gelatin from goobing correctly.

I beg to differ. Massively. These things wobbled out a treat; I added an extra tablespoon of gelatin powder…which suits me fine Read more

A slow food and hiking guide to Hobart and Freycinet

Posted on October 10th, 2014

It’s become quite a thing…these slow food and hiking guides. I’m glad you like them. From my point of view, if I get 100 people to leave their comfort zone and get out of the city to move and eat real food in regional areas…well, I will die in peace knowing my job is done. This next installment saw me fling south to Tassie. I wanted to see What All This MONA Fuss was about…and to sample some of the incredible food offerings I was hearing about from out of Hobart. I was also itching for a hike. So was my best mate Ragni. So we made it a mate’s getaway extended weekend together.

Visit MONA. I don’t need to bang on too much about the details of this incredible art experience. You can Google all about it. My take is this: my expectations weren’t grandiose, so I thought the experience was fabulous. Others, I know, arrive expecting (New York’s) MOMA.

And, yes, it was mostly the experience – the ride over in the camo-painted ferry with plastic sheep for seats and staff dressed in combat gear, was part of it. So, too, the fact you never quite know what’s art and what’s not. (For example, the Read more

My latest gut health obsession: gelatin

Posted on September 26th, 2014

You know how a growing number of modern ills – including, and particularly, autoimmune diseases – are now deemed to stem from the gut? And you know how most of us have crook guts that are leaky and nervous and cranky? Yeah?

The simplest gut-healing breakfast a girl can eat: coffee almond milk #gelatin chews (two ingredients: grass-fed beef gelatin with coffee almond milk).

Well, you’d really have to agree that that would make fixing your gut our number one health priority. No?

The boon is this: It’s also something we can do now to fix our various compromised situations. I write about this often and about how food really is the best medicine (not just a jaded slogan). Truly, it is. We can take charge now.

And, so I introduce gelatin. Gelatin is basically cooked collagen and comes form the bones, hides and connective tissues of Read more
