Burgers and soups and fries, OH MY!

They say that time flies when you’re having fun and I suppose it’s true. It’s been two months since I made the decision to become vegan and the things I’ve learned have made it a really fascinating journey so far. For a few seconds I planned a one month challenge, but a couple of days ...

Some thoughts as week two gets under way…

So I wasn’t imagining it, I measured my waist this morning and found that, despite the scales showing it’s usual fluctuations of a kilo or two up or down depending on the day, the tape measure showed that I have lost five centimetres off my waist. That bloating I thought had gone, definitely has. Yay! ...

Going vegan: week one done and dusted.

DAY FOUR: SUNDAY I wake up full of plans for our lunch, and as I get on with my morning I realise that I am feeling a lot less bloated already. The scales show only the smallest loss but the feeling of lightness in my belly is unmistakeable, and I can’t remember how many months ...

Why go vegan?

First post goes straight to the big question: WHY GO VEGAN? Is why not too flippant? In truth it’s been quietly brewing in ways I was never fully aware of. The friends who made the choice and loved it always had me wondering what the heck they could love so much about not eating cheese, ...

Going vegan: the first few days.

Day one: Thursday. I wake up really excited about starting my vegan lifestyle. Wait, that sounded really wanky. Anyway, I’ve done some homework and I think I’ve got a pretty good idea of what I can eat, at least to start with. I kick things off with my own granola that I make at the ...

Going vegan: am I really doing this?

I’m really excited. You know when you’ve been thinking about something for so long but just not quite ready to make changes? I’ve been super frustrated with myself lately on the food front. It seems like since the new year began I’ve lost all control and all the sensible choices I was making last year ...

Guess who's back?

Four months. I never planned on staying away for four months. But one look at the date of my last post and I’m not surprised. Even as I raced through the writing and uploading of the last couple of posts things around here were frantically busy. The end of April straight through to the end ...

A very special kitchen tea.

I was honoured and excited to attend a very special kitchen tea recently. The girl next door, who we love like our own and who has adopted my daughter as her little sister, celebrates her big day in just over a month. She is known for being just a little bit of an OCD perfectionist, ...

Travelling around the world the foodie way.

One of the definite pluses to having up to eight people to cook for most nights is the fact that sometimes you have a great excuse to go all out. Especially when it comes to the style of eating usually referred to as shared plates.  Whether it’s Spanish tapas, Middle Eastern mezze, or an Asian banquet, ...

Review: MEJICO Miranda

It was with great excitement that our local mega mall revealed it’s long awaited makeover last October, and with it an impressive brand new dining precinct. Much of the excitement centred on the opening of Mejico. And after hearing lots of good things from whoever had most recently dined there, it was with great anticipation ...
