This is that list. (Most of these recipes feature in I Quit Sugar: Simplicious.) As I explain in the beast, it’s best to eat more
  • My 7 favourite ways to use turmeric Look, I’m aware turmeric is fast becoming the new kale, that is, an over-hyped “superfood”. I guess, though, unlike kale, turmeric has some unique health properties grounded in a long history of healing cooking (nothing against kale, but it doesn’t really stand apart substantially on any front from good old silverbeet). I use a fair more

  • 9 fun ways to make last night’s dinner with an egg on it Folk out there are still scared of leftovers. They needn’t be. They’re safe, and legal (to take home in doggie bags from restaurants), and entirely sensible, sustainable and simplicious.

  • When other people do Simplicious better than me! One of my great mates, Bill, told me he’s sick of the sound of my name. His partner Mark has changed the way they live and it’s kind of annoying Bill. Bones being collected from his plate and the smell of bone broth…it’s driving him mental. Worse, whenever he arks up, Mark’s response is, “Sarah Wilson says…”. more
  • Why the one Simplicious book, three covers around the world? I like to clear up confusion. My latest book I Quit Sugar: Simplicious is now available around the world. But there are currently three different covers. And two different titles? The thing is this. Some territories like to create their own covers that suit their market segment. I designed my Australian cover. Here it is. Actually, more
  • Sorry, but you shouldn’t be drinking almond milk! Almond milk. Everyone’s drinking it. Indeed, it’s recently overtaken soy as the most popular dairy-alternative.

It’s time they should be. 1. more
  • so you think your takeaway coffee cup is recyclable. It ain’t. I’ve banged on before about why you should give up your takeaway coffee cup habit highlighting the fact the BPA in the lids is poisoning you. Of course, there is also the environmental aspect, which has bothered me for years. But I didn’t have the data on it all. Now I do. Perfect timing. I’ve recently 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
  • My Simplicious “Beet That” Popstick Salad Summer has hit and it’s HOT here in Sydney. So I’m sharing one of my favourite recipes from my latest book I Quit Sugar: Simplicious: the Beet That Popstick Salad. Yep, a salad with popsicles.

One of them being my Good For Your Gut Garlic recipe. more
  • I’m giving away my #Simplicious cover outfit Well, that’s slightly clickbait-y.

To tie it all in to my anti-wastage mission, I’m going to share the more

  • 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
  • How to build the perfect abundance bowl These one-pan, two-minute mélanges are my standard lunch (or breakfast, or dinner) fare and I’ve included a big bunch of great combos in I Quit Sugar: Simplicious.

  • 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
  • Bonus Recipe! My Simplicious Beefin’ Good Jerky This jerky recipe from I Quit Sugar: SIMPLICIOUS is seriously easy to make and will leave you feeling a little bit “frontier”.

  • 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
  • My Simplicious food waste cheat sheet for trolls It would seem my latest book, I Quit Sugar: SIMPLICIOUS, is a little contentious. The fact I advocate doggie bags, double dunk my teabags, and cook up my friends’ fish bones into stock apparently leaves some a little uncomfortable. In fact – and this astounded me when I heard – I got wind a few weeks 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
  • The Simplicious book cover my publisher rejected… My new book, Simplicious, arrived on my desk this week. It was more than 18 months in the building and hits book stores at the end of this month. Here’s the cover…you can probably get the rough vibe. It’s fat, it’s sustainable, it’s about sticking it up Big Food and Over Consumption, it’s geared at more
