Hey guys, this is me signing out for a while. As much as I love photographing and banging on about food, is time for a wee break from Facebook and Instagram. It's something I've been wanting to do for a long time but haven't felt ready until now. Social media has many extremely important roles in the world today, but addiction to it is real! I have noticed myself becoming overwhelmed by the amount of time spent on my device and have decided to detox for a little while from social media. I want to spend this 'social media fast' being more present, practicing mindfulness, focusing on relationships and reconnecting with myself. I will also be continuing my #whole30 and intermittent fasting during this time (minus the photos), allowing more time for physical movement, sleep and catching up on some books. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support and I hope to see you back here sometime soon. ;) Love Karlie xx #socialmediadetox #socialmediafast #detox #mindfulness #switchoff

I always tell my class, the only thing soft drinks and lollies are good for is being blown up in Science. Muwahaha! Wish I could share the pic of the geyser that went over 2m high, but their faces are in it. :( Man were the looks on them priceless. Fun times! #teacherlife #science #chemistry #sugarfree #thatsugarfilm #cocacola #schwepps #homebrand

Millions of Muslims around the world are fasting this month for Ramadan. I did my first day of Ramadan 8 years ago whilst at my first school and was fed like a king by my lovely parents who made me beautiful Egyptian style zucchinis stuffed with rice and mince. The exact time to begin and break the fast is very specific and is usually determined by the Ramadan calendar, which differs slightly for Shi'ite and Sunni Muslims. Otherwise, turning on your local Islamic radio station and waiting for the dramatic clap of thunder followed by the haunting call of, "Allah akbar!" (God is great) is another way to get the timing right. The traditional way to break the daily fast is with a date, a custom observed by the Prophet Muhammed himself. The dates are often stuffed with nuts, making it a yummy carb and fat-filled treat to restore energy levels. Many of our students observe the annual Ramadan fast, some as young as seven! Yikes! What drives them besides parental promises of generous gifts and money at Eid? "It's to feel how the poor people feel," my students say. For adults, fasting has many benefits not just as a spiritual observance, but for physical health. And Islamic groups have been some of the first used to formally study intermittent fasting, a fast growing trend in health circles, but one with very ancient roots. Humans have always gone through intermittent periods of feast and famine. Hunter gatherers experienced large yet sporadic hauls of meat and access to plant matter, which they would consume then and there or store ahead of time, then go for days on end without much, if anything at all, to eat. We evolved this way and our body has very specific hormonal responses to this lifestyle, which can contribute to long term health benefits and longevity if done properly. Certain societies, such as the Sardinian shepards who've practiced a lifetime of fasting live well past 100yrs of age, as did many people who lived through the great depression in the 1930s. The best resource outlining the benefits of #IF and the 5:2 diet is the documentary, "Eat, Fast, Live Longer". It's a must watch: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xvdbtt_eat-fast-live-longer-hd_shortfilms

So exciting to see natural fats having the comeback they deserve. Yay for nutritional guidelines catching up to what has been known for some time now. #Repost @holistic_lifestyler ・・・ Not sure if you folks are aware of the latest current recommendations of the previously vilified cholesterol and saturated fat and the so called good guy 'carbohydrate'... 🍳The poor egg, once the good guy then the bad guy, then just its yolk was the bad guy, so we saw a spike in 'egg white' omelettes, now he/she is safe again to eat in its whole form, yolk/fat and all, with butter too :) **Just recently the former American Dietetic Association now known as The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) released a statement saying “The Academy supports the decision by the 2015 DGAC [Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee] not to carry forward previous recommendations that cholesterol intake be limited to no more than 300 mg/day, as 'available evidence shows no appreciable relationship between consumption of dietary cholesterol and serum cholesterol.'" They also went on to suggest that the USDA support a revision to de-emphasis saturated fat as being a nutrient of concern, and that "Carbohydrate contributes a greater amount to the risk for cardiovascular disease than saturated fat, so the replacement of carbohydrate will necessarily result in a greater improvement in risk." In other words: don't worry about cholesterol and saturated fat like we once were, be more concerned with processed carbohydrate consumption. Don't blame butter for what the bread did.

#Whole30 approved slow cooker steak 'n' kidney casserole. I love food that cooks itself while I sleep or work. #tooeasy Kidneys by Green Cow Organics, NSW. Served with roasted pumpkin and sweet potato (in olive oil and sea salt only), steamed organic greens, 'kraut. Happy winter solstice (for yesterday). :) Full recipe here (I added an extra bottle of passata sauce, used bone broth instead of stock, coconut aminos instead of worstershire sauce, added heaps of ginger and used wild saffron milk cap mushrooms I foraged this autumn from Balanglo State Forest. I also quadrupled the recipe to freeze leftovers): http://easynaturalfood.com/2011/11/08/steak-and-kidney-stew-slow-cooker/ #steakandkidneypie #steakandkidney #slowcooker #paleo #offal #organmeat #nosetotail #casserole #soulfood #winterwarmer #glutenfree #dairyfree #grainfree #sugarfree

These little beauties are going into my slow cooker tonight for a hearty steak 'n' kidney pie using chicken foot bone broth as stock (see prev post). I started a #Whole30 today so I'm going pastry free on this one. It'll be accompanied instead by plenty of ghee-drenched root vegetables and weedy grins, I mean greens. :) #organic #steakandkidneypie #lambskidney #casserole #offal #organmeat #nutrientdense #nosetotail #Whole30 #paleo #primal #nourishingtraditions #bonebroth #chickenfeet

Chicken foot bone broth jelly (defrosted in the fridge) with a lovely layer of rendered chicken fat on top. Gelatinous, tasty, nourishing. It'll melt down in my slow cooker overnight as the perfect casserole base for my steak 'n' kidney pie. See next post.

This is grain free manoush pizza on a baked potato rosti base. I have Italian heritage and also grew up in South Western Sydney, the Aussie home of Lebanese cuisine, so these flavours are close to my heart and taste buds. :) It's excellent refried as leftovers for brekky hashbrowns. Could be good on a homemade spelt pizza base if you prefer. The baked potato rosti base is essentially 3 ingredients, grated potato, unrefined salt and natural animal fats originally by @forevernutrition1. How to prepare it here: https://m.facebook.com/forevernutrition1/posts/706065256128827 Manoush pizza: Top rosti base with this traditional lahem recipe from @elianeskitchen - Ingredients for the Lahem (Meat) 1kg of minced lamb meat 1 large bunch of parsley 2 whole onions 3 garlic cloves 1/2kg of tomatoes 1tsp if chilli flakes (add more if you like it hotter) A tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp cumin Unrefined Salt Pepper Activated pine nuts (soak overnight in filtered water) For Variety: You can add 1 red pepper/capsicum (I skipped this step, but regretted it afterwards. Do blend. :)... Place all the ingredients except pine nuts together in a blender and let the blender do all the hard work for you. Blend till all ingredients are combined very well. Spread the meat evenly over the base, sprinkle with activated pine nuts and cook in the grill or oven until the meat is cooked. *To eat: squeeze some lemon juice over the meat and enjoy. Note: if you have made too much place the remaining amount in the freezer in a zip lock bag labelled with the date. It will last you several months in the freezer.

Homemade pizza sauce is a cinch and beats Leggo's or other store bought pizza sauces which are sweetened with sugar. In a saucepan, simmer a large jar of organic pasatta (eg. Macro brand, Woolworths) with two finely chopped onions, a whole head of grated garlic, a large handful of fresh basil (or a cpl tblsp of dried basil), unrefined salt and pepper. Reduce down until thick enough to spread on pizza base. Yummy grain free pizza base in next post. #pizza #homemadepizzasauce #paleopizza #sugarfree

I'm so proud. :) The gorgeous organic lactofermented sauerkraut that I made with my students from our very own school garden produce, which was not so much of a hit at the sausage sizzle, was a HUGE hit today in these beautiful homemade goslemes made by our heroic canteen mums! I appreciate these ladies so much. They always go above and beyond to accommodate my crazy nutritional ideas and this delicious creation made them a handsome profit and helped fundraise for our school. One happy teacher right here.

Winter is the time for comfort foods that leave your tummy feeling like it's had a big warm hug. :) But it's also a time when fresh veges can get pushed aside or forgotten in favour of meat and carbs. Now there's nothing wrong with meat n carbs, esp if your training hard, but my top tip to stay nourished through winter is to eat a big bowl of salad or steamed veges BEFORE you tuck into the rest. I'm doing just that tonight, with a bowlful of raw goodies including homegrown parsley dressed in evoo, acv and wild fennel salt, before I get into my yummy chicken and potatoes poached in bone broth. #winnerwinnerchickendinner #salad #rawfood #bonebroth #potatoes #nutrition #comfortfood #winterfood #nourishingtraditions #foodporn #powerbyplants

    Pecans are my fav too. Walnut?👎 ... What do you mean "activated"
     
  • @mushroomsandivy Activated nuts have been soaked in water and salt for 24hrs time, which starts off the germination or sprouting process, then dehydrated at a low temperature. Soaking increases the nutrient value of the nuts along with breaking down the problematic phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors that cause digestive problems. All grains, nuts, seeds and legumes should be properly prepared this way via long soaking.
     
  • @mushroomsandivy (18 dni)
    Holy moly! But if u buy store-bought nuts they've probably been killed somehow right? Is there a benefit to soaking those?
     
  • Only ever activate raw nuts. @mushroomsandivy

You may have heard of amaranth being a quinoa-like pseudo grain, a gluten free substitute for conventional carbohydrates such as wheat or rice. It's becoming popular in an increasingly gluten free world. Well there's white, shop bought amaranth and there black wild 'n' weedy amaranth. I'm talking the latter of course and it grows wild everywhere. But because the wild black seeds are just out of season (usually added to breads, pizza bases, cakes) I've harvested leaves only to make some tasty wild foraged SALT 'N' VINEGAR AMARANTH CHIPS (my weedy take on kale chips, a fun way to get another serve of greens in). ;) Wild amaranth ID info here: http://www.eattheweeds.com/amaranth-identification/ Fun fact: "Amaranth was a staple of pre-colonial Aztecs, who imbued it with supernatural powers and made it part of their religious ceremonies. They would mix amaranth flour and human blood then shaped the dough into idols that were eaten in their well-known sacrificial ceremonies." From: http://www.eattheweeds.com/amaranth-grain-vegetable-icon/ SALT 'N' VINEGAR AMARANTH CHIPS Collect a bunch of wild amaranth leaves. Wash and remove them from the stems. Place onto dehydrator trays and dehydrate on high for 5-6 hrs or until crispy. (Alternatively dehydrate in an oven at 60°C). Lightly spray with white vinegar and season generously with sea salt. Perfect for a Game Of Thrones marathon. ;) #amaranth #Wildfood #edibleweeds #amaranthchips #kalechips #dehydrator #nutrition #greens #healthspo #instarecipe #instahealth

You may have heard of amaranth being a quinoa-like pseudo grain, a gluten free substitute for conventional carbohydrates such as wheat or rice. It's becoming popular in an increasingly gluten free world.

    We've only recently discovered edible weeds but my mum used to make amaranth and dried shrimp soup. We've always eaten this in our culture and I've only just discovered that its commonly considered a weed. Love your posts, so informative!
