Dairy Free Date Cake

Scanning through past posts I feel it is time for a sweet treat recipe. I realise I post savoury dishes as there is always some information I want to get to you. Very often with desserts or sweets there really isn't anything I can write about so this week its just a recipe. Oh except in the recipe you can use coconut sugar or rapadura sugar. Both sugars are apparently healthier than the old...

Fresh & Vibrant Food Preparation Class plus iron rich snacks

Last Saturday's Seasonal Cooking Class was a delightful experience.  I love the enthusiasm of people who come together to learn more about vegetarian cooking.  I also enjoyed showing people how to include more iron and protein in their diets.   This class was different for me in the way I planned it.  Usually I plan what I want to include in the class and then go out and...

Vandana Shiva and Millet Recipes

The recent Uplift festival had many highlights for me and the first was listening to Vandana Shiva's talk. I had catered for Vandana Shiva the week prior to the festival and hadn't actually realised how famous or how influential she has been in the world. When catering for Vandana Shiva I instantly liked her but wasn't quite sure why. After hearing her speak I felt truly honored that I had been...

Christmas Ideas and Healthy alternatives for Eating Salmon

This is an extra blog post this week to give you some wonderful ideas for Christmas and keep you from reaching for a packet salmon. I am not entirely sure why but in the last few weeks it has been bought to my attention how much salmon is being consumed these days.This led me to look into why people are eating salmon and how it is farmed. Alarmingly salmon is grown with very few ethics and in my...

Byron Bay Tempeh

In my very busy mind I had a great story to tell you about my love of tempeh. It was so eloquently put together but the reality is I now can't put thought to paper.  So here is a much briefer account of my tempeh love affair. When I was first introduced to tempeh I didn't quite understand the attraction. I persevered but the chemistry just wasn't there and I gave up even trying to like it....

So I will take time to write blog posts over the next months getting as much information as I can to you on obtaining enough iron.  I started to write some information about the different types of iron and gave myself a headache so for this blog...
