An issue extremely close to my heart, Palm Oil use is a contentious one, and one that we are all participating in – most of us, without even knowing it.

Raise your hand if you have a pantry full of stuff, and complain there’s never anything to eat. Much like a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear, this can be a serious source of stress for many people. So together, we’re going to find out if you need a pantry overhaul or not.
Last week, I took my friend Sara bulk foods shopping for the very first time. It was so exciting for me and allowed me to see through the eyes of someone who’d never bulk food shopped before… and I saw it was a tad overwhelming when you don’t know where to start! I know there are many listeners out there who’ve never bulk food shopped before, so wanted to share some easy green tips and tricks to make your bulk food shopping experience a joy!
In this episode I wanted to talk about waste – and in particular the waste of organic fruit and vegies, and how you can transform it into healthy leftovers so nothing gets thrown away.
When you use the best organic fruit and veg, you want to get the most out of it- and there are so many ways to use leftover fruits, vegetables and nuts; and not all of them how you’d expect…
Going green relates to many facets of your life – everything from recycling, reducing waste, and making sustainable choices – and it also relates to your diet.
The ‘greenest’ diet there is, is a vegan diet.
Surrounded by stigmas and hatred, many people associate veganism with brown rice and tofu, a ‘hippie’ lifestyle, and someone who’ll voice their opinions the second you mention the words ‘Big Mac’.
But I wanted to help clear a few things up. Even if you’re a meat eater, check this out – I promise this episode will be informative and interesting! I’m also going to share with you a delicious challenge! Here’s the links to the recipes I mention in the podcast:
In this episode of the Easy Green Podcast, I wanted to take you back a bit – to my journey, where I started, and to assure you that everyone starts somewhere. I explain what it means to go green, and share some really easy tips that will help you get started!
Whether you’re a football fan or not- there’s no denying that footy fever can very quickly sweep through entire households and friendship groups. Take me for example; an Essendon fan (by proxy) sat glued to the semi final. Definitely not something you’d normally catch me doing, but the fever had hit, and a bunch of us cheered the Bulldogs (yay, a dog themed team!) all the way to the finals.
In this LIVE chat, I speak about my favourite high protein vegan foods, how I like to food combine, what iron supplements I like, and how best to cook tofu.
Over the years I’ve tried many, many plant based vegan and raw protein powders. We’re so lucky that now there is such an abundance of vegan protein powders that there really is one for everybody and every body. I’ve tried over the years to find one that doesn’t affect my stomach, cools me down too much, and doesn’t leave any nasty after tastes. Here are five that I’ve tried and enjoyed… some more than others!
Has the bitter cold hit where you are yet? It’s come at me like a thief in the night, stealing into the room, filling up the corners with cold, damp air, and has found us all, literally, hunkered down under a mountain of blankets. It’s also had me running for warm breakfasts. Smoothies, be gone! Bring on the porridge.
It brings me great pleasure to announce the return of my live, in person, interactive Vegie Head Workshops!

Nacho’s aren’t rocket science. They’re 50% prep, 10% assembly and 40% stuffing them in as fast as you can without losing the toppings all down your top. But what are the best vegan nacho toppings? Here I share with you some of my fave toppings guaranteed to beef up your nachos (with no animals harmed of course).
I remember the first time I heard about Spaghetti Squash. It was way back in the Winter of ’09. I was reading a blog that was talking about this low carb pasta, that was made from a vegetable. What?! But the biggest question….does spaghetti squash taste like spaghetti?
The joyous feeling of a full pantry. It’s my happy place. Knowing that I’ve got everything I need to create nourishing meals from scratch makes me immensely, insanely happy… and bulk buying is the best way to make that feeling wash over me again, and again.
In this episode of Vegie Head TV, I have a chat about the rest of my journey – including how I feel about following a vegan/plant based diet, and the biggest shifts I’ve experienced.
On this pretty rad journey, I’ve discovered many things- lots about the world and even more about myself. In this two-part episode, I share a few nuggets with you- of things I wish I knew before I went vegetarian and then vegan.
In this episode of VH TV, I talk all about my favourite plant based source of protein; THE MIGHTY LENTIL! Red, Green and Yellow- and what you can do with them. I’ve also included some of my favourite recipes below!
Ah Tahini, you creamy, buttery, smooth mistress. You’re the one I keep on the side so almond butter doesn’t get jealous. I keep you in the fridge, nice and cool, and sneak you out to spread on toast, mix into sauces, make into dips and add to bliss balls.
