paleo lemon cake with smashed raspberries


It was a baking kind of weekend last week and instead of making another raw cake or something chocolatey (which I often tend to do), the Sydney winter chill called for something nourishing and baked.

thai salmon with cucumber relish


How epic does this salmon dish look? It can easily become a weekly go-to meal because it takes literally less than 20 minutes to make.

book review: clean living fast food


Clean Living Fast Food by Luke and Scott

The lowdown:

A simply illustrated, easy-to-follow cookbook full of comfort food and much-loved favorites given the Paleo (free of wheat, sugar, dairy, grains, yeast and gluten) makeover.

Recipes include pizza, ice-cream, various desserts (lots of chocolate ones), doughnuts, burritos and fish & chips. Highly appealing for the time-poor but healthy cook. Not a book to be left for display on your coffee table as there’s so much do-able (not just for show) healthy food inspiration, and recipes can be tweaked to suit your needs.

On the downside, not a lot of cuisines represented here, and there are only several breakfast ideas. Still, a great book if you’re not a devoted Paleo follower, or haven’t even heard of Paleo for that matter!
