All recipes included in the workshop are made with real […]

FINDING MY ‘NEW NORMAL’ POSTPARTUM- holistically addressing perinatal anxiety, weight loss & more

*Breathing in deeply* *Exhaling* It’s Midsummer’s Eve here in Sweden and, rather than sharing a festive recipe, I am sharing reflections from a deeply personal journey. I believe inspiration comes in many forms. I could show you a picture perfect side of my life, or talk only about the appealing side of things, or not […]

GRILLED NECTARINE & AVOCADO PIZZETTAS (and some reflections on anxiety)

As summer creeps back in (thank you, Sweden*!), it’s time to celebrate with family, friends and perfectly summery festive food! These pizzettas are a take on my popular Nectarine & Avocado Toasties of a couple of years back. Made simply with Mexican pita breads and cashew cheese, they’re a light, simple lunch or wholesome addition to your […]

FAMILY FARM STAY REFLECTIONS FROM BACK 2 EARTH, SHOALHAVEN (+ cashew yogurt breakfast pizza recipe!)

I am very grateful to have been a small part in its conception and I wish Marc, Jenny and animal rescuers/advocates everywhere the very best.

WATERMELON CELEBRATION CAKE (100% fruity fun!)

At this time last year, I was being transferred from the delivery ward to the maternity ward at SÖS. That’s right; Oliver (aka Baby Marzipan) has just turned 1. I could cry. Oh, wait. I already have! 😛 We’re celebrating the big baby milestone in Australia… in 36°C heat (thank you, Adelaide)! And there couldn’t be […]

WELLNESS & WANDERLUST WEDNESDAY with featured fitness expert, Diana Tencic

Welcome to the first of a series of posts featuring fabulous individuals (some of my favourite people!), their inspiration and insights into some of my favourite subjects: wellness, wanderlust, food and travel! I couldn’t think of a better person with whom to begin this dialogue than long-time connection, friend from afar and I Quit Sugar super-star expert […]

KICKING SUGAR TO THE CURB (some myths busted + a giveaway spot on the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program)

Congratulations @dromvittran and thanks so much for the interest everyone! I wish I could give you all a place on the program. For those who are interested in joining this round, it’s […]

30 MINUTES TO A VISITOR-READY HOME (an ongoing domestic challenge)

Have you ever heard the quote “You are your home”? Does it resonate with you in some way, making you feel warm and fuzzy… or slightly uncomfortable? We’ve been in the process of selling our home over the past few weeks and, amongst other things, it has meant a lot of cleaning, organising and sorting out and […]

CHOCOLATE & FENNEL LACTATION COOKIES (gluten/fructose/dairy-free & IQS-friendly… with no brewers yeast)

Before I launch into this post, I feel compelled to state that I am hesitant to call this recipe a “lactation cookie” recipe, even though it is based on the standard lactation cookie principles (sans brewers yeast). Firstly, there’s a deliciously unusual cookie flavour profile made up of low-sugar, gluten/dairy-free ingredients and a recipe that’s customisable… and thus is […]

WHOLESOME GINGERBREAD COOKIES (and an update on Baby Marzipan)

Before I get to the recipe, it is with a full and happy heart that I share with you the news that our long-awaited “Baby Marzipan” (now known as Oliver ❤ ) arrived on February 28, at 10:56pm. For those of you who may be interested in the birth story, I am considering sharing it […]
