Unpredictable

I left London today. I’m not sure when I’ll be back (nothing new there). I came back to London full of trepidation; I wasn’t sure if I should stay, because in June I had a dreadful time: being here was simply too painful. Something was pulling me here though, I had a feeling that I…

Sorrow

Today, I walked past and visited some of the last places I went to with my mum. Because I was away travelling or living in Australia since 2014, I realised I didn’t actually get to spend that much time with her before she died. I went to the cafe we last had brunch on Hackney…

Sugar

Poached eggs & grilled vegetables – homemade cooked breakie No grains. No pseudo grains. No added sugars – even the healthier kind. No wheat, gluten or rye. No alcohol. And I bloody…

Best of the Brunch: Chickpea Flour Pancakes

I’m just going to state the obvious – chickpea flour (also called Besan Flour) pancakes don’t sound very appetising, right? Well I thought so too – but I had an unopened pack of Bob’s Chickpea & Fava Flour in my cupboard from an impulse purchase during my first visit Prahran Market that I had to…

Nutrition Bite: Fats

This post is in defence of Fat. Not in defence of the word fat (that’s another topic altogether); but rather, in defence of the macronutrient fat (some of them, anyway). Fast fat facts: 1) Fats act as fuel for your cells – it’s the most concentrated form of dietary energy 2) They help absorb fat-soluable vitamins,…
