• Food waste dilemma: packaged single-serve veggies v bulk buying? A study by AUSVEG’s Project Harvest last month flagged that Australian consumers are veering towards veggies that prevent wastage. DAMN GREAT STUFF! But how are we going about this? The good news is that we’re opting for individual broccoli heads, rather than bulk packs of brocs (wrapped in plastic etc), and veggies like zucchinis that come more

As you might have guessed, there’s five in her family, which is why her latest feat is so inspiring. Check this shit out! She cooked 10 meals for five people more
  • Yes, I eat bones off strangers’ plates (and other food wastage tips) As I explained in my Simplicious Food Waste Cheat Sheet for Trolls post last week, in my latest book, I Quit Sugar: SIMPLICIOUS, I plug doggie bags, double dunk my teabags and cook up my friends’ fish bones into stock, all of which apparently leaves some a little uncomfortable. But it’s necessary. And non negotiable. Food waste more
  • A Simplicious style Leftovers Torta recipe I love seeing meals regenerated from leftovers, cupboard essentials or any scraggy-looking veggies. My new book I Quit Sugar: Simplicious is  dedicated to the art of creating these kind of meals. I call it “perpetual cooking” (a meal should have no start and no end; it keeps going and going). My old mate Anthea Loucas and brilliantly more
  • Your green shopping bag is making you eat crap Good morning, friends. Here’s an eco-conundrum to ponder. A study published last month in the Journal of Marketing found shoppers who brought their own bags to the supermarket tended to buy more chips, cookies and other treats than those who didn’t. How the goodness does this work? The researchers found that the shoppers’ self-perceived righteousness more
  • Please meet my biggest, best book yet: Simplicious Simplicious hits bookstores today. No drum rolls please. I’m just pleased as punch that it’s here. It was two years of work. It’s 306 recipes. And I’ve taken a gamble here…it’s about how to eat your scraps. This book is my career highlight, my passion project, my obsession. Sustainability has always been at the guts more
  • I’ve gawn fishin’… I’m off. Not quite fishing, but off to write my next book (yes!) so I figured I’d leave you with a bit of a teaser for Simplicious in my absence… As you might have picked up from my blog, I’m fired up about waste. Mindless consumption. All of it, but also very specifically food waste. I’ve always more
  • Buy my soup in a jar. Help the homeless (my new project!) I have recently hooked up with the The Inside Out Organic Soup Kitchen charity. A little while back I gave away artwork to raise money for one of their projects teaching disadvantaged young mums how to cook. Now, we’ve joined forces to provide you with some of my soup. As well as the homeless folk more
  • Don’t Buy My Books What do you think of this? It’s a message I’m trying on for size after seeing outdoor brand Patagonia give it a crack as part of their anti-consumerist campaign. Patagonia ran with the slogan “Don’t Buy This Jacket” a few years back as a series of print ads. The irony, of course, is that it translated as more
