To some the following information may seem shocking, to others, myself included somehow it feels like… finally! The fact that we seem to need scientific studies to back up millennia of empirical results, and what should be (and used to be) common sense still frustrates me, and from time to time feels like an insult to our human, ancestral, biological intelligence.

CELEBRATE: Meal One, Two Thousand & Twelve.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Following on from an amazing year in 2011~ the ever more exciting, highly anticipated, widely talked about, pondered, researched, theorised and debated year of 2012 is now upon us!!!
According to some it’s the year to end all years (in a very literal sense), but only time will tell what is to become of our watery planet! Personally I’m VERY excited by all of the possibilities and the potential that we have as a family (a really big universal planet earth family!!).
Consciousness is definitely shifting and I believe that all of these shifts are moving us towards a greater version of everything! Sometimes it’s difficult to see the forest through the trees, but it’s definitely out there!! WOOP!!!!

I say ‘cheese’ because I’m sure that unassuming cheese eaters would not spot the difference if it was layered in anyway! That and I caught my ‘meat-eating, milk-drinking, McDonald loving chef flat-mate’ with his fingers in the pot! HA! Go nutritional yeast!!
So we layered the eggplant, sliced broccoli, green leaves, and alternated with pesto, tomato sauce and drizzled in Continue reading
ENJOY: Happy Savoury Saturday!
I’m back, for the third time in a week maybe, or close to it! I think you’d call this “on a roll!!” It’s a delightful Saturday afternoon, I’m sitting on the lounge with a cup of herbal tea, a few little dark chocolates from CoffeeWorks (…mmm, dark ginger bark!), have just enjoyed a 10minute nana nap, am listening to Vicki Christina Barcelona soundtrack via Christie’s laptop on the opposite couch, and there’s a slight breeze rustling through the open blinds. 5pm on a Saturday in Cairns, a truly magical time.
Today has been lovely. We went to a yoga class and ‘grew’ a few inches this morning, my body left feeling looser than when it arrived; Continue reading
