I am on a mission to make every kitchen a healthy and sustainable one. I am passionate about transforming everyday habits in a way that makes a difference to the planet. I love finding ways to inspire change within homes by writing recipes and tutorials that make the green choice the fastest, cheapest most convenient one. I hunt down products from sustainable businesses that will help me to do that. I love connecting the people who produce food with the people who eat it.
This blog started when I started a little experiment to see if I could avoid shopping at Australia’s big two supermarkets. These were the reasons I decided to give supermarkets the flick. Over a year I discovered a whole lot of other places to shop and other ways of finding food. I found that I got more involved with my community and started cooking healthier food from scratch. This is my seven step guide for any one else who wants to try giving up supermarkets. I’ve also put together a list of the books and food writers who have most influenced my thinking.
Nowadays, I do use supermarkets again, but I try to spend more of my money at other places like farmers markets, small businesses, pick-your-own farms or social enterprises. I write about how you can do these things too.

- Social Enterprises that make your money go further
It’s not expensive to avoid the big supermarkets if you know how to cook so I post lots of recipes and ideas for fast, easy and family-friendly meals. Lots of these recipes are vegetarian because it just solves lots of problems if we all learn to love vegetables.
