• 72% of us toss bagged salad leaves each month. There’s a reason why… When I wrote Simplicious Flow I pivoted the whole book from a huge survey I did with you guys. More than 3000 of you responded and there were 7000-plus comments and questions for me. Call me a sucker for flaggelation, but I went through every one of them and then wrote the book to attend more
  • “But it’s recyclable!” Yeah, right… Yesterday’s post covered why I don’t include a chapter on recycling in Simplicious Flow. Today, let’s do a fun quiz (!) to help us become better recyclers (!), for those occasions when we must resort to it after buying less, avoiding disposables, and repurposing what we have, bearing in mind that a survey of 2000 adults more
  • I don’t have a chapter on recycling in my book. This is why… There were a few reasons. First, it would take an entire book to explain helpfully how to navigate the convoluted recycling system across states, councils, countries. There is seriously no comprehensive information to impart, because it doesn’t exist. I looked and looked and asked and badgered. No one knows where, if it all, you can more
  • Here’s a mini Simplicious Flow book…for free. Hey, my publisher and I have made this little flippy cookbook for you guys. It allows you to check out a bunch of Simplicious Flow recipes and get the general vibe of the book, for nada. You’ll see the sheet of baking paper I used for the whole book (I then use it as a more
  • The world’s first zero waste cookbook! (How so?) Since you guys know me well, I can tell you this. When my publisher Ingrid asked me to write one last cookbook, I struggled with the idea. The way cookbooks typically work is wasteful. Does the world need another one? You see, cookbooks as we know them today work to a bunch of isolated, complicated more
  • Simplicious Flow has landed and it’s not a normal cookbook! Today my big fat new cookbook lands in bookstores around Australia and New Zealand (be patient with your local shop…they can take a day or two to unpack). It will be available via Amazon in the US and UK in a few weeks – hang tight! Here are a few not normal things to know more
  • The Simplicious Flow Book Tour dates: Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, Brisbane Simplicious Flow and I are hitting the road. Over the next few weeks we’ve got some events lined up (hopefully in a city near you), talking all things cooking (and living) with less waste and fuss, and more floowwww. Special hosts will be there guiding the conversations. As always, lot of QnA time and book more
  • Good news: you can still buy I Quit Sugar Gelatin I decided to produce this stuff a few years back, because, well, it made sense to. The good quality gelatin – for making panacottas, gummies, etc and that comes with amazing gut healing and digestive-aiding properties – came from South America (via the USA). Why couldn’t we produce a version here using pasture-raised bones (that more
  • Erin made all 306 recipes in Simplicious in 18 months. I’m blown away. When Simplicious came out October 2015 I set a challenge to all you guys: Cook every recipe in the book and tag it #simplicious306 and I’ll follow your journey and share your recipes. The process was marvellously rewarding and brought together a bunch of wonderful souls who shared their journey…and even did meet-ups along the more
  • 8 clever ways to reuse a ziplock bag Let’s get really Sustainable Nerd today. I promote using sealable plastic bags when cooking and freezing food. They’re the perfect size for storing individual portions and things like parcooked ‘n’ frozen veggies really well; they become totable freezer blocks in a blink; they are better for storing in the freezer (I pack mine in layers); more
