I’m back with my weekly real food round-ups, even if it is a little late this week. Last week I ate a mixture of meals, including some very frugal ones using eggs and some not very frugal meals out.  [Read more…]

I’m Back!

Moreton Island

It’s been a while since I last blogged, and to be honest I haven’t really felt like it lately. I think it was a combination of being busy and getting burnt out with blogging. I’ve been a bit intimidated by all the blogs out there that have beautiful photos of beautiful food, and the bloggers who are super-organised and running businesses.

One of my favourite bloggers, The Frugal Girl always says “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good“.

I tend to focus on eating lots of fruit and veggies, meat and healthy fats, and haven’t really missed the bread and pasta and other grain-based foods. Until now, that is.

Recently I came across a recipe for fermented buckwheat bread on Facebook. Instead of the usual list of ingredients, this recipe only used two – buckwheat and water, so I decided to give it a go. Plus I had a bag of buckwheat in the pantry that needed to be used up.  [Read more…]

Real Food Round-Up – Eating From the Freezer

Every week I share a round-up of my dinners from the previous week – both the good and the bad!

Since I’m underemployed at the moment, I’ve been trying to eat up the food in the house rather than going shopping. This week I ate two meals from the freezer, made my own tahini from black sesame seeds and used up the bunch of rhubarb I got at Tamborine Mountain making salsa and stewed rhubarb. [Read more…]
