  • three summer quinoa recipes…from the gorgeous Cannelle et Vanille I’ve mentioned before how Aran Goyoaga, the beautiful writer and chef behind blog Cannelle et Vanille, and I met online. We connected via our shared issues with thyroid disease. We’ve never met – she lives in Florida – but we write to each other on Twitter and emal. A modern pen pal kind of thing. more
  • going gluten-free? some hiccups you need to know about Gluten’s got a grimy name just now. I’ve previously outlined my thoughts on going gluten-free (who should, why it’s not a “fad” etc). It’s worth a read if you’re a little unsure about the whole debate. If you’ve already made the move, or have contemplated it, then you might learn a lot from this rundown more
  • what is the paleo diet? (plus how I’m doing it) Paleo is the new Atkins. I don’t actually think this. But it’s what everyone likes to say. It certainly is a way of eating that’s attracting a lot of attention…and with it some terribly hysterical mis-information. Wondering what the hell I’m talking about? How about I give a bit of a Paleo 101 rundown…with some more
  • 10 (more) paleo breakfast ideas After my post about why the paleo diet works, and then my coconut flour post, one of the biggest requests I’ve had is: what can I eat for breakfast if I’m grain-free, sugar-free? You ask, I oblige…here’s a glorious host  of options for you to try from bloggers and tweeters and from my own archives. more
  • my best-ever recipes #1 Perhaps you’ve finished off at work? Perhaps you’ve done the shlepp back “home” to the parents and are a little bored? (Raining much in your neck?) Perhaps you’re dreading the mince pie/pudding/platters of lollies and Jatz onslaught and want to contribute a few edibles of your own…These might provided some inspiration. Jo and I have more
  • wheat free! sugar free! Take-to-Christmas treats A few months back I connected with Lee Holmes who told me she was writing a cookbook. She asked if I’d “endorse it”. For some niggly, gut-based reason I had a very sound feeling about what she was doing…Lee has an autoimmune disease and has healed herself through diet. She sent me some recipes from more
  • Sally Fallon’s tips for eating breakfast I’m a big fan of Sally Fallon and her “bible” Nourishing Traditions (in fact it’s my all-time favourite manual…I VERY much recommend it). She’s an adherent to the Weston A Price way of living, which is similar to Paleo living, which is similar to how I eat (I’ve personally found it the best approach for more
  • Tuesday eats: breakfast…sans grains and sugar! As readers of this blog might know, I can’t do gluten or sugar, which makes breakfast tricky. If not toast or porridge or muesli or fruit, then what? Eggs. And more eggs. zucchini ricotta cheesecake, via 101cookbooks Not a sad predicament, but variety is required. Lately I’ve also been experimenting with cutting back on grains more
  • Tuesday eats: some gluten-free basics Here’s two things about going gluten-free. You have to, at some point, abandon the idea of eating exactly like you used to. It does mean eating less carbs, partly out of necessity (cos you can’t eat the muesli or the toast options on a breakfast menu, for instance). But in the meantime (point two), there more
  • Tuesday Eats: if you’re keen on quinoa… If you’re keen on quinoa (pronounced keen-wah), I’ve written a bit of a cheat sheet on how to cook and eat it before, and I’ve also posted additional quinoa recipes here. I’ll be honest, a quinoa post always gets folk going, so I’ve posted some extra recipes…each has a fun twist and all are great more
  • Tuesday eats: more gluten-free recipes! My mate Dee Coleman has launched a great recipe share site which has some good gluten-free ideas. You should check it out. (Also check out the link below to gluten-free breakfast joints…and add some of your own in the comments. We’ll get a guide going….) Two things I like about Cook My Way 1.the recipes more
  • Tuesday Eats: hashed lunches Everyone keeps asking me for lunch ideas…here you go. I love making a hash of my lunch. Hashes are all about efficiency and sustainability and heightened flavour. For me they entail mixing up leftovers – grains, meat, beans, vegetables – from the night before and frying them with some cheese and/or an egg and tossing more
  • Tuesday eats: what I eat for lunch (quick, fast, office-preparable, gluten-free) * plus four more I’m shifting my eating a little at the moment. I’ll post more on this shortly. But in a nutshell: I’m on a protein mission. When I eat a solid portion of protein at lunch, I’m not hungry until dinner. Again, I’ll explain soon. In the meantime. I just ate this for lunch, prepared in my more
  • Tuesday Eats: gluten-free christmas recipes Over the weekend I was handed some Christmas cake at a friend’s barbecue. I don’t like Christmas cake. But such was my overness with having to say no to festive food, I asked if I could eat some of the left-over ingredients – the walnuts and apricots – to feel part of the action. So more
  • Friday: it’s a wrap! Hey, it’s Friday. I had a great week. (For more baby animal cuteness check out this indulgent mid-Term angst antidote Salon link). * So, this week the astute, “give it to me, I’ll do it” Jo Foster started with me in my office on Monday as a writing assistant and general life helperer. I’m beyond more
  • Tuesday eats: a guide to grains (and my good news!) A few weeks back I got some tests back saying my immune antibodies have chilled out and are back to normal after three years of being off-the-scale-crazy. My body is no longer eating itself…and is slowly repairing! The doctor was impressed. How did I do it? It was a bunch of things, most of which more
  • Tuesday eats: millet Millet is great. Have you eaten millet? It’s a super grain. It’s kind of like quinoa (high in protein, gluten-free, substitute for rice/couscous/flour), but is crunchier and is also: * high in silica, which is great for bones * soothing, especially for indigestion or morning sickness * anti-fungal; helps ease Candida symptoms * improves breath more
  • stuff I’m not paid to endorse: a Bondi guide A few days ago marked seven years in Sydney for me. July 3 2003 I arrived in Bondi with a carload of belongings and moved in with Bill from the coolhunter (at the time he worked from his bedroom with a following of a few thousand…now it’s in the millions). I’ve moved back and forth more
  • have a sweet weekend: 12 march xx This week was surreal and round-abouty. I interviewed Mitch Albom and Deepak Chopra and was contacted via my blog by Dan Buettner who did the Blue Zones study about how to live longer that I wrote about recently. The interaction started off stand-offishly (him giving me a ribbing for a comment I’d made about his more
  • my gluten-free pumpkin + chia muffins I’m not about to venture into the food bloggosphere, but I’ve been asked to share the recipe for the muffins I took to this morning’s brunch. I’ve kind of made it up.  Apologies to all home economists everywhere…I know this might horrify you. So, five bodgy steps: 1. turn oven to 180 or so (my more
