If nothing else, COVID-19 has been a valuable learning experience. We have learned how to look at ourselves in the mirror with a rampant head of unclipped hair and maintain a sense of dignity and self-love. We have mastered a hitherto unseen facial expression for Zoom business calls that lies somewhere between sub-lethal boredom and wry amusement. We have discovered that the word “binge” can be applied to any aspect of life, and that cotton, polyester and elastic combine to make very forgiving clothing. Among these lessons, there has also been plenty revealed about our food supply. COVID has sparked fears around food supply worldwide, but among those fears there are green shoots of hope for our food future. It has to be said that Australia has a highly secure food supply. The…

Lee Holmes Lee Holmes’ food philosophy is all about S.O.L.E. food: sustainable, organic, local and ethical. Her main goal is to alter the perception that cooking fresh, wholesome, nutrient-rich meals is diffi cult, complicated and time-consuming. Lee says, “The best feeling I get is when I create a recipe using interesting, nourishing ingredients and it knocks my socks off. Then I can’t wait to share it with my community and hear their experiences.” After being diagnosed with a crippling autoimmune disease in 2006, Lee travelled the world discovering foods that could be used to heal her body at a cellular level. After fi nding many nutrient-rich and anti-inflammatory foods and changing her diet, Lee recovered. Her mind alive with ideas for new recipes, she wanted to share her creations with the world, so…

Coconuts started life in India but, thanks to their capacity to float on water and survive massive ocean journeys, they have made their way around the world. To use your coconut, punch out the eyes using a screwdriver and a hammer, then drain the liquid inside, which can be enjoyed as a drink or for cooking. To facilitate removal of the coconut flesh, bake it in a 180ºC oven for 20 mins, allow it to cool, then crack it. You can eat the flesh as is or grated in salads, curries or soups. The freshly grated version is much sweeter than the dried version, but both make delicious additions to biscuits, cakes and other desserts.…

Mint has been a popular herb with humans since at least Roman times. Its first use was probably for its odour, which is very pleasant. The Romans would strew fresh leaves on the floor of rooms to freshen them and also repel pests such as mice. In addition to being pleasing, the aroma of mint has healing effects on the airways, digestion and the mind. Taken internally, mint has distinct medicinal effects as we will see later, but it was the Romans who first really embraced the culinary possibilities that mint offers, probably beginning with a nice mint sauce. There are more than 600 varieties of mint but by far the most common are spearmint (Mentha cardiaca) and peppermint (Mentha x piperita). Peppermint has rounded leaves with sharp-toothed edges and an…

Avocado Avocados are a fabulous source of healthy monounsaturated fats that are essential for good health, including healthy cardiovascular function. Fats also have a positive effect on appetite and satiety. When fats enter the stomach, they stimulate the release of a hormone called cholecystokinin, which suppresses appetite and delays stomach emptying. This is one of the reasons why consuming avocados with a meal will help you feel full for longer. Avocados contain beneficial oleic fatty acids which have been found to reduce hunger and food intake. Avocados also provide plenty of dietary fi bre that further increases the satiating effect of this delicious fruit. A study published in Nutrition Journal found that overweight adults who added half an avocado to their lunch had an increase in satisfaction and decreased desire to eat.…
