Loving my new @the_horse watch! I’m a horse (Chinese Horoscope), it’s year of the horse, and I grew up pretty much on horseback. Wearing @urgefootwear sandals too #itsagoodday #feelingfine #spring #notfoodrelated

An eggplant craving lead me to making eggplant involtini: baked slices of eggplant rolled around a filling of ricotta, parmesan, grated zucchini, chives, parsley, oregano, lemon zest and a pinch of cinnamon, covered in napolitana and baked again for 20 mins.

Sitting in a Balinese hut amongst rice paddys of Ubud eating Nasi Goreng Bakar and drinking young coconut water with school buddies Spanna and Milo (who surprised me at my hotel last night!).

I got punished by a Chinese yogi in this morning’s yoga class. But what a delightful setting for such torture! 
Now I’m tucking into a big plate of Indonesian noodles and tropical fruits (yeah pawpaw!) for breakfast.

Super prepared for my trip to Bali. Got these little happy helpers to keep my gut happy. 
Clockwise from top: SB Floractive strips bad bacteria from intestinal lining (ie. helps diarrhea); Bao Ji pills great for damp-heat gastro type symptoms (and hangovers!); Travellers friend is a natural water purifier that can be used to kill any bugs on the inside; Ping Wei San for cold-damp symptoms (ie. over indulgence in cold foods/drink) and damp accumulation in Spleen/Stomach; Gan Jiang (dried ginger) in the brown packet which is awesome to settle upset stomach when stepped in hot water and drunk as a tea. I also use it to settle a nervous stomach which sometimes comes when there’s too many bumps on the flight 😉

Preeeeeeetty much every damp-forming food featured here. But by golly I enjoyed this favourite from my childhood: peanut butter and avocado on toast. I’ve added banana and mixed things up by using olive baguette from Irrewarra sourdough (featuring Mt Zero olives).

This is an epic breakfast story: smoked creamed corn, avocado, lime mayonnaise, home-pickled jalepenos, topped with a poached egg and served on Dench sourdough. I need not embellish this story. Soooooooo gooooooooood

Oats on oats….it’s the double denim of breakfasts 😉 
Porridge topped with rhubarb and raspberry compote, Gippsland dairy yoghurt and Irrewarra Sourdough’s granola. 
What foods do you double up on that’s interesting?

I just heard on the news that flu numbers in Australia have almost reached total figures of last year…and the season hasn’t even peaked yet!

Protecting and boosting your immunity is the best way to prevent getting sick. Keeping warm (especially torso and back of neck), hydrate with warm water and warming hebal teas, moderate exercise that gets Qi flowing yet not drain the body, and of course good nutrition using in-season ingredients.  

My epic breakfast this morning is a base of porridge topped with stewed rhubarb (testing a product from work), a small amount of yoghurt, good quality muesli mix for crunch. I’ve added roasted chestnuts and freeze dried apple for something interesting and keeping with seasonal theme.
