Welcome to lentils and lemons.
Scroll through for a little more about me.
My name is Estelle Rose and I'm thrilled you've visited. I hope I can share a thing or two with you and maybe you can also share a thing or two with me.
This is a place where you will find (mostly) whole food, mediterranean recipes that are nourishing and healthy! I created Lentils and Lemons as a way to express myself creatively and share recipes I watched my family cooking growing up. I enjoy experimenting with historical recipes and transforming them into something that is wholesome and satisfying. Too often I get told that eating healthy is time consuming, boring and that to do it right you need to give up all the good stuff. On this blog, I'll share ways to cook and eat delicious and satisfying food without cancelling all your weekend plans to prepare it.
You can sign up as a blog member to ask questions and leave comments on recipes, and, you can find some FAQS below.

Do you have vegan, gluten free or dairy free recipes?
Yes. All recipes on this website do not contain dairy or gluten. There is a vegan category on recipe posts. I do provide options where appropriate for adding proteins such as fish and eggs. For more on ethics, head to the FAQS page.
How do I source animal products sustainably?
You can source your protein from ethical and sustainable farmers. For fish, look for the ASC Australia & New Zealand label. For eggs, check out the 'free range pastured egg' directory, look for the 'Humane Choice' Label which is managed by the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia, or organic and animal welfare certification labels for animal welfare beyond the corporate standard. More on the FAQS page.
What is a whole foods mediterranean diet?
A whole foods diet includes unprocessed and unrefined foods and limits animal products. The Mediterranean diet is extensively researched and one of the healthiest in the world, and I hope to do it justice on this blog. For more head to the FAQS page.
