Real Food Round-Up – Conferences

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

First of all, congratulations to the lucky winners of a double pass to the Real Food Festival, Lee-Anne and Tanay. I’ve sent you both an email and I need you to send me your addresses (to liz@economiesofkale.com) so that we can post out the passes.

Last week was unusual in that I didn’t cook a single dinner. In fact, I don’t think I cooked a single meal over the whole week. Don’t worry, there was a reason for that; I was only at home for around 12 hours between my conference trip to Perth and the Problogger conference on the Gold Coast. I did have a lot of good food on both trips, but it was quite rich and you never have the same level of control that you have at home. I’m looking forward to detoxing a bit this week.  [Read more…]

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

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

Something fantastic happened last week. My housemate and I went to the supermarket just before closing time and they had free range cooked chickens for half price. I thought about getting one, but then decided I didn’t need it. Then as we were paying for our groceries, one of the employees offered us each a free chicken. Needless to say, we said yes and I planned most of my meals around the free chicken for the rest of the week. [Read more…]

Menu Plan Monday – Flu

Things were quiet on the blog last week for a good reason – I was sick in bed with the flu! Unlike when I get a cold and want to eat everything in sight, this week I didn’t really feel like eating at all. I guess the upside was that I really didn’t spend a lot of money on food this week.  [Read more…]

Menu Plan Monday – Winter

Every Monday I post my menu plan from the previous week to give an example of what I eat on a day-to-day basis. 

Last week I was visiting my family in Melbourne. Since I finished my PhD I have a lot of free time and I managed to find cheap flights to go down for a week’s holiday. I had a great time, but it was definitely cold! Luckily we had lots of hearty meals to keep us warm.  [Read more…]
