Have you joined the vegetable spiraliser party yet? The popularity of this kitchen tool has exploded in recent months and I believe it’s due to the awesome balance between ‘healthy’ and ‘fun’ food that this pimped-out mandoline can help you achieve.

It’s said that a good meal nourishes the soul and I’m struggling to think of many things as nourishing as a “fall apart” tender and hearty beef stew.

I’ve learnt this week that talking about copyright infringement on Facebook is an area fraught with danger.

Yes, it’s been three months since you’ve heard from me. I can hardly believe it myself. What started as needed “a few weeks away” when my naturopathic college majorly changed my course and study patterns has become three months of stress, new learning experiences (I’m doing Life & Wellness Coaching, as well as Permaculture now too) and spiritual inflection.
