• This is my swimming kit… I’ve been meaning to do this for a while. I get asked often what I swim in when I swim oceans. But I’ve put off writing a post on it while I deliberated about showing a picture of myself in said swimming attire, because to do so would look particularly Bondi Babe Instagram Braggish (not more
  • Give a shit about food waste? Eat frozen food (true story!) I love to debunk a holy-than-thou food myth. How’s this one for you: very often eating the frozen version of a food is better for you, for the environment and can taste better than the fresh version. How could this be? I looked into this notion some time back. It’s why when I devised the more
  • Would you mind helping me with my next project? I’m working on a big project – OK, it’s another book (!) – and I’m wanting to get a feel for what food we’re wasting. So that I can help folk, well, not waste these particularly forlorn  foods. How do you all feel about answering this very short survey as honestly as possible (it’s totally more
  • The real cost of your coke. Time to get real. I have spent half a career highlighting how bad junk food is for your health. But, TBH, sometimes this focus gets on my goat. It’s all me, me, me. My guts, my skin, my weight, etc. Me, I feel the environmental impact of our horrible humanoid habits is the far bigger harm that we should more
  • Be unavailable for a day. Can you do it? I am always so on. Engaged. Reaching out. Helping. But this creates a situation where everyone expects a response. Now. Same for you? People know when we’ve read their Facebook message (and our texts if we’re dumb enough to leave that “read”  function on). And if they can see we’re online, 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
  • Bet you didn’t know your junk food was poisoning you quite like this… There’s a chemical clusterf*ck going on with your junk food that makes trans fats seem small fry. This, I believe, is the new frontier in getting aware of the God-awful way we go about eating. We now know about the toxic oil in our Nutella, the poison in our Diet Pepsi and the 50-odd ingredients in a single Macca’s milkshake.. But add this more
  • The lessons of a generation living out of a storage unit Lead singer Rai Thistlewayte from Australian band Thirsty Merc did one of those “at home with” interviews recently. “Owning stuff is a burden,” he told the journalist.  “That said, I learnt the hard way. So, now I like to keep it simple. You end up putting an apartment’s worth of stuff into a storage unit, more
  • My Sarah Wilson Round-Up of Signs The World is Improving I’m an optimist. I’m seeing signs that the world is cottoning on to the need to change the way we brazenly consume and consume and consume.  Almost seven years ago I (outrageously!) suggested we all eat 6-9 teaspoons of sugar. And stop drinking fruit juice. What do you know, the World Health Organisation came out more
  • 8 bits of plastic you can quit right now The Earth can’t digest plastic. Plastic things are bought and used and that’s it – the Earth is burdened further. This issue has reached critical point. And we have to act. All of us. Because we are the issue. I know some of us get flummoxed by the data. Which is why I thought I’d more
