Who am I? I am an Aussie expat living in Hong Kong since 2001. A mother of two and qualified food & nutrition teacher, nutritionist and health coach. I am passionate about providing my family with healthy,nutritious and tasty wholefoods,with the odd indulgence thrown in! My food philosophy is all about creating and of course consuming real food made from whole, fresh, unadulterated ingredients where possible . . . homemade goodness rather than commercial, sugar and additive-laden, nutrient devoid 'foods'. My Thermomix powers this way of eating for my family and I. I am also an advocate of variety plus moderation. The benefits of eating a varied diet are enormous and of course not over-eating any one type of food or ingredient is where the moderation comes in. You will notice that although there are no food intolerances or allergies in our household (fortunately), I love to tweak recipes to be healthier. Plus, when I have the time, I love to develop my own recipes inspired by the ingredients I know and love. This is my way of doing what I can today to nutrient my family in the best way I know how . . . but, at the same time, not becoming too obsessed with every little thing that goes into our mouths. So, although many of my recipes may sound or look familiar, most of them will be a little 'different' in some way as I endeavour to boost their nutrition. I also like to ensure that we don't over-do any one ingredient . . . . apart from of course the highly nutritious ones, which you will see frequenting my recipes :) As a side effect of this way of eating, most of my recipes, in some way, will be suitable for people with particular food intolerances or dietary choices. For e.g. I like to use a mixture of different grains in my baking, rather than single out wheat flour. Several of my recipes are therefore gluten-free, others are dairy-free, vegetarian, even vegan. Plus I also give some advice on how they can be adapted to suit different dietary needs. Owing to my background in nutrition, I also like to provide some nutritional information or advice for getting the most out of ingredients nutrition wise. . . I call this information my 'nutrition tid bits'. My online recipe collection is growing week-by-week and you will notice that it tends to lean more towards child-friendly, quick, convenient and nutritious snacks and meals. I hope you enjoy my blog.
