It's not often that you happen upon a Real Food Rockstar of international fame.

I was wondering after seeing some horrible meal service commercial on TV, whether there was anyone out there who actually got it right in the land of meal delivery services. I knew of a couple of lovely gourmet delivery meal services, but on the wellness and 'real' healthy eating focused front, it seemed all options were still in low fat la la land serving up additive laden foods often high starch to boot, or you then had all the juice fast businesses. Literally at the time of my pondering, … [Read more...]

There are many ways to enhance our real food regime. I'm not one for obsessing over the latest, weirdest extract from the hair of siberian mountain goats for a mere $800 per jar, no sir - Not even if it proclaims to hold the key to eternal life! Every now and then though, there are cool products that make it past the hype to prove themselves as great nutritional supplements full of real food power - especially during our busiest times when skipping the odd meal or being temped by quick grab junk … [Read more...]

Meet Real Food Rockstar: Kitsa Yanniotis

kitsa

I first met Kitsa through a cookie - her luxurious coconut and sour cherry macaroon to be precise. Then, I moved into her cultured veg - my go to brand when I haven't got the time to make my own. Then, we became friends. I have so much admiration and respect for Kitsa and her talents. She is an incredible source of information for allergy sufferers and food intolerance, as well as a wonderful sharer of useful, helpful information. She was the pioneering woman in Australia to bring back cultured … [Read more...]
