Sun drying excess fresh mint leaves for many months worth of peppermint tea. Fresh mint in black tea is delicious, but this is a way to preserve excess fresh mint before it goes bad and had to be tossed... in the worm farm of course (waste nothing!). You can do this to any cooking/drinking herbs for safe long term pantry storage. Store in air tight container. #pepperminttea #mint #peppermint #sundried #minttea #infusion #herbs #wastenothing #simplicious

Homemade lactofermented #kimchi beginning a 7day ferment in the vege press. INGREDIENTS: 1/2 wombok cabbage, cut into 2cm squares 2 carrots, halved lengthways, then sliced using mandolin 1 whole diacon radish, halved lengthways, then sliced using mandolin Knob of fresh ginger, sliced using mandolin 2-3 garlic cloves, sliced using mandolin 1 tblsp sea salt Dash ACV Sprinkling of my homemade chili flakes (made by grinding homegrown dried chillis, then adding a little salt as a natural preservative; they keep for years) Filtered water Juice from a previous batch of sauerkraut OR 1 sachet of vege culture starter eg. #bodyecology OR use organic veg, which has naturally occurring starter bacteria (lactobaccilus) on it, which acts as the starter culture - nb. This method is called 'wild fermentation', whereby the first batch will be slightly weaker than following batches, ie. each subsequent batch made with juice from the previous wild fermented batch will be more populated with beneficial bacteria than the last. METHOD: Mix all ingredients. Do not pound (pounding is only required for making sauerkraut). Place in vege press, contents fully submerged (add more water if required), for 7days (or glass jar with weighed object so everything is submerged). Refrigerate. Enjoy as a gut nourishing probiotic condiment with meals. #probiotics #gutflora #reseeding #healthybacteria #guthealing #guthealth #lactofermentation #fermentedfood #culturedfood #wildfermentation #sauerkraut

    @karlie_eat_to_live I've ordered Australian bentonite clay powder online, I've used it once but plan on using it once a week! It really beats all the crap in the $$$ #glamglow mask! How do u prep /use ACV? As a toner?? My current one as sukin toner but it's time to move into a new one! I also love coconut oil on my skin.
     
  • Hahaaha looking good Karlie!!!
     
  • @roo_kigh_uh I just do my finger in the acv and dab it on breakouts. Simple as that. The clay is fantastic, highly recommended!

Organic chicken frames about to go on low for 12hours covered in filtered water with a dash of vinegar to draw out the minerals, which will become a beautiful bone broth (aka, a mineral rich homemade chicken stock). I'll strain and season it with s&p after. You could also add chopped onion, carrot celery in the final few hours for added flavour. Each organic carcass cost me $3 bucks. #bonebroth #guthealing #chickensoup #gutsealing #chickenbroth #chickensoupforthebodyandsoul #simplicious

Each week I'm going to set an optional #challenge to #whole30 goers (or anyone who's interested). For week two, I invite you to start mixing up the ingredients you typically use. Animal protein: Try an unfamiliar cut of meat. If you're a chicken breast kind of gal/guy, then try wings or chicken neck soup or make duck a l'orange instead. You could slow cook some osso bucco beef bones or make kangaroo rissoles instead of your usual bbq rump steak. You could roast some marrow bones and pick out that juicy gold with a chopstick or get really brave and add a little liver (nature's multivitamin) to your scrambled eggs or make a steak and KIDNEY pie with parsnip mash instead of using potatoes. Or forget land animals altogether and give a beautiful whole fish (expand beyond salmon or tuna) in the oven a go with lemongrass and galangal. Perhaps you've always wondered what the fuss over soft shell crab is about (coated in coconut flour then fried in ghee of course) or maybe you'd like to try steaming some mussels in a rich basil and tomato sauce. Fruit/Vegetables: if you usually reach for the same three veges in the supermarket shelf (does carrot/potato/broccoli sound familiar?) then try an Asian green grocer. Think winter melon soup, shaved fennel salad with grated diacon radish or stir fried bitter melon. Instead of your usual apple a day, try a persimmon, some pomegranate or a guava (something in season). Even if u can only manage just ONE new food this week, that's great. But since vegetables & fruit are our only source of carbohydrate, we may as well use this opportunity to expand our cooking repertoire, develop our taste palettes and broaden the range of nutrients we usually consume. Hey, it could even be fun! Strategy: locate one unfamiliar item in the shop/at the market. Then google it with the word 'recipe' to see what comes up. Can't wait to hear about your adventures! Week Two, come at me, bro! Peace, love and vegetables (...and animal protein and approved fats), Karls xo #varietyisthespiceoflife #nextwhole30star @whole30recipes

Prepared a big pot of soup this afternoon. It's 'neep and leek. Variety is the spice of life! Sweat chopped leeks in ghee, add diced turnip, stock/broth. Simmer until soft. Blitz until smooth. Season well. You could also add coconut cream for some creamy factor or a few potatoes. Garnish with #zaatar, activated almonds and nutmeg. #soup #broth #vegetables #turnip #leek #Whole30recipes #whole30 #nextwhole30star

  • @back_to_basics_nutrition what Ru worried about, you pretty much eat like this anyway! Feeling really good today. I think my body is settling into the awesome nourishment it's been getting for almost a week now.
     
  • Thanks for the recipe @sophisticatedcaveman! :)
     
  • Yeah the only thing I would have to change is butter and coffee.... That's what I'm worried about!!! @karlie_eat_to_live glad your feeling good!!!
     
  • Wow! That looks amazing!
     
  • @back_to_basics_nutrition you can have 1-2 coffees per day, but it's recommended to cut right down if u rely on it heavily. Butter becomes ghee, so there's that problem is fixed! ;)

#Whole30 day 5 lunch. Fueling up before a night out where I know I'll be starving if I'm not prepared. Homemade everything from scratch: Minty lamb patties (lamb mince, onion, fresh mint, shallots, oregano, egg, s&p) with onion rings, foraged dock leaves, carrot and homemade mayo on a mushroom 'bun' cooked in lamb dripping (dripping rendered after roasting lamb ribs a few weeks ago, saved and frozen till required). Made extra patties to freeze. Crispy beetroot coins (definitely not 'chips', no, definitely not) sliced raw using a mandolin then tossed in garlic infused olive oil and sea salt then oven baked. Leftover turmeric roast potatoes, refried in lamb dripping. That's lunch done. Ohhh, yeah. :) #Whole30recipes #nextwhole30star #paleo #paleoburger #mushroombun #lambburger #burgerporn #realfood #homecooking

I took this 'unusual fruits platter' as a #Whole30 alternative to cake to a birthday dinner this week; unusual being subjective of course. But I knew they'd be a curiosity for these particular kids and everyone had fun trying things they'd never seen or tasted before. Lychee, longan, fresh fig, dragon fruit, blood orange, sugar plums, star fruit. #fruit #asianpersuasion #eattherainbow #broadenthepalate #nextwhole30star

#Whole30 day 3 dinner: Butter Chicken 'of sorts' (it's always everyone's bloody favourite, isn't it? But I'll tell u why anything us Aussies call Butter Chicken is BS in a minute), sautรฉed silverbeet grown in my backyard and the most outrageous twice cooked organic crispy turmeric potatoes that are so good they have me wondering whether I've pushed the boundaries of #swypo tonight. Curry on hot chips much? What detox? The Brits would approve of this combination. But these are actually compliant. Back to the Butter Chicken. So I'm heading to Himachal Pradesh in 2.5 months and whilst scoping out the food scene at my local northern Indian restaurant in preparation for my trip, the waiter almost kills himself laughing telling us the story of 'Australian Butter Chicken'. The first BC he ever ate in Australia, he actually thought was a dessert! So there you have it. Ya think you're eating authentic Indian and then, bam! Your sugar loving, western palette fools you again. And it's actually called 'Murgh makhani'. Ok? Well, I intend to track down the real deal when I'm in Rome... so to speak. I'll call this 'Chicken and Butter Curry': Flash fry spices (coriander seed, cumin seed, garam masala, cardamom, fenugreek, ginger, garlic, chili powder, etc - there are regional variations) and onion in ghee (ghee is Indian style clarified butter). Add tomato paste. Then diced chicken thigh. I used some coconut cream too, but traditionally the meat is marinated in dairy cream. Simmer. Twice cooked spiced turmeric potatoes: Par boil cubed potatoes. Drain. Toss in ghee, organic turmeric powder and cumin seeds. Oven roast until golden and crispy. Drain any excess ghee drippings into the curry pot. I ate my curry on 'chips' like the loyal 6th generation British descendant that I am. #chickencurry #winnerwinnerchickendinner #butterchicken #indianfood #spices #potato #ghee #nextwhole30star

I'll call this 'Chicken and Butter Curry': Flash fry spices (coriander seed, cumin seed, garam masala, cardamom, fenugreek, ginger, garlic, chili powder, etc - there are regional variations) and onion in ghee (ghee is Indian style clarified butter). Add tomato paste. Then diced chicken thigh. I used some coconut cream too, but traditionally the meat is marinated in dairy cream. Simmer. 
Twice cooked spiced turmeric potatoes:

Par boil cubed potatoes. Drain. Toss in ghee, organic turmeric powder and cumin seeds. Oven roast until golden and crispy. Drain any excess ghee drippings into the curry pot. I ate my curry on 'chips' like the loyal 6th generation British descendant that I am.
