Yippee! I’ve found an organic wheat and gluten free pasta that not only isn’t completely stoggy and fluffy but cooks beautifully and feels like traditional pasta. Really! (Better in fact – for me and most of us anyway) This one is quinoa and rice spaghetti and the others in the Olive Green Organics range are just as divine. (The penne is a particular favourite).

It’s time to cover all things ORGANIC- how you really know what you’re buying, why pay the premium, what are we avoiding when we buy organic, who’s certifying, organic markets around Australia and I’ll also cover organic cosmetics.
Have a look at the growing list of events and promotions happening around the country this ‘National Organic Week’! Take part in an event or register your own!0 Comments
Making a Smoothie is a regular part of my day. I have a shelf right next to the fridge and above my Vitamix, just for my smoothie ingredients – things like chia seeds, green powders and aloe juice by Lifestream, and different oils like flax and Made In Hemp oil, tahini, coconut water, flakes and oil, nuts and seeds, maca, macqui, mesquite, raw cacao and acai powder, and psyllium husks.
I decide on what base I want that day – coconut water/milk, filtered water or maybe rice milk, sometimes a fruit and sometimes not, then I choose my extras and add a teaspoon of these, (as above). I sometimes add kale, spinach leaves, rocket, avocado, coconut oil, and seeds like pepitas, hemp or chia.0 Comments
Who said organic food was always more expensive? Both these coconut milks are $3.29 – and check out the ingredients in both. Pureharvest is what I use – even if it was double the price. We vote for the type of world we want with our wallets.0 Comments
Juices or Smoothies? What’s The Difference? I’m more of a smoothie gal myself as I want the WHOLE food. My smoothies are a meal or snack in a glass. I want the fibre to help keep my gut clean, blood sugar even and the help remove any nasties from my body.
Juices I use when I want to cleanse/fast for a day or 3, or when I need an instant hit of easy to digest nutrients – FAST0 Comments
