One of the things I took the most pride in this year was the fact that, in spite of lots of schedule upheaval, I managed to stick to a reasonable home cooking and meal prep routine. I told myself that I wouldn’t worry too much if I needed to rely on takeout every now and…

This isn’t a recipe post, but it touches on something that has been near and dear to my heart this year, as a dietetic intern: leftover storage. During my clinical rotations, half of every Saturday and Sunday were dedicated to meal prep and batch cooking. Yes, it was a lot of time, and yes, I…

I’m debating whether I should keep including “simple” in my recipe titles, since simple food is the name of the game lately, and really since my internship year started. But I guess it never hurts to call it out. Anyway: this bulgur chickpea dish is indeed very simple, as the name implies. There’s some cooking…

Years ago, a reader mentioned (while I was doing the SNAP challenge for my masters program) that one of her favorite inexpensive meals was a stir fry of rice and lentils with a peanut butter sauce. It sounded simple and delicious, and it became the inspiration for this dish, which is now a weeknight favorite….

There’s just something about travel that seems to stop all health plans – it usually involves a lot of sitting around, breathing in other people’s germs, eating bad food and generally feeling like crap. I’d love to know how celebrities look so polished when they land after a 15 hour flight from LA…what is that…

5 Ways with Greek Yoghurt

Greek yoghurt is high in protein, all-natural, and makes for a fabulous substitution for a lot of other less-healthy ingredients in baking and cooking. I was never really a big fan of yoghurt until I tried the Greek versions – it’s strained to produce a thicker, creamier texture. Not dissimilar to loosely whipped cream, the stiffness…

Guys, I have the most epic news to share. We’re talking E-P-I-C, as far as foodie news goes. Over the last year I have I been working away with commercial food photography clients (yay - www.sallyoneilphotography.com) – photographing and styling food that I LOVE. After the launch of Love Move Eat cookbook here in Australia, which I…

Sometimes a cookbook arrives at exactly the moment it’s needed. Just as I’ve been getting back into the routine of weekly batch cooking and weekend meal prep, I’ve also been exploring my friend Kim-Julie Hansen’s new book, Vegan Reset. The book is a 28-day roadmap for exploring veganism, and while I’m usually a little resistant…

This low-key curried quinoa lunch salad isn’t new. It’s an amalgam of different curried quinoa recipes I’ve played around with over the years, some hot and some cold, some more elaborate than others, and all employing a random mixture of ingredients that I happen to have at home. I’m posting it for the first time…
