Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is mediterranean food?
    Eating Mediterranean has been shown to be one of the healthiest diets in the world and is extensively researched. Couple this with reducing red meat and using plant rich whole foods, and you have a win for your health. What comprises the Mediterranean diet? Plant-rich foods, such as whole grains, vegetables, legumes, fruits, nuts, seeds, herbs and spices, are the foundation of the Mediterranean diet. Olive oil is the main source of added fat. Fish, seafood, dairy and poultry are included in moderation. Red meat and sweets are eaten only occasionally. A well balanced plant-rich diet is built around multiple protein sources (for example; legumes, beans, eggs) and good nutrition is about sustainable dietary changes and behaviours. Always seek a dietitians or nutritionists advice.

  • ​Do you have vegan, gluten free or dairy free recipes?
    Yes. There is a vegan category in the recipe posts. I provide options to add protein such as eggs, fish or meat to those recipes for anyone who isn't vegan. I include gluten free recipes that I have taken the time to experiment with as I have family members who suffer from celiac disease and we have experimented with recipes to provide an alternative for them and they have turned out delicious. I love hearing from you so if you do try one, please let me know.
  • How do I source my fish or eggs sustainably?
    You can source your protein from ethical and sustainable farmers. For fish, look for the ASC Australia & New Zealand label. The Aquaculture Stewardship Council. A non-profit organisation managing the world’s leading certification program for responsible Aquaculture. For eggs, unless you are fortunate enough to have your own chicken coop, 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. You can find these types of eggs at supermarkets like Harris Farm.
