GREAT FOOD GUILT FREE
Click here for more details or to order CLEAN LIVING COOKBOOK
by Luke Hines, Scott Gooding


Earlier this week I was lucky enough to catch up with the Clean Living Boys, Luke and Scott, for a cooking demonstration. Passionate Paleos, they served up a gorgeous menu while talking about their philosophies for a healthy lifestyle and still eating delicious food.

Their Clean Living Cookbook is a wonderful achievement, the perfect book for the food lover who also wants to eat healthy with variety.

We started on Sweet Potato Fritters with Smoked Salmon and Avocado, I cooked them the next day Click here to check out the Clean Living Cookbookthey were so good. As the night wore on Scott seasoned some trimmed Pork Fillets and made a beautiful salsa (with a hint of spice) to roll into gluten-free tortillas and create their signature Pork Tacos.

Luke (a big dessert lover) talked us through his coconut choc-fudge recipe. No baking, no fuss, and a sensational way to end the night, washing it down with a kale smoothie that, and I can't believe I'm saying this, was absolutely lovely.

There's a reason why Luke and Scott are fast on their way to becoming Australia's Health Food Stars. Their passion for food is only matched by their love to educate everyone they meet on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

Their message is simple, eating healthy food will change your life. Whether you want to lose a couple of kilos or just learn some great new dishes, the Clean Living Cookbook is a beauty.

A YEAR OF GREAT RECIPES
Click here for more details or to order A YEAR ON THE FARM
by Sally Wise


Renowned cook, Sally Wise has always wanted her own cooking school, and her own farm, where she could grow the things she wants to cook with. One day she and her husband came across a property in Tasmania's Derwent Valley with an orchard full of fruit trees, and a funny old chalet/cabin out the back. A plan began to take shape... In this, her latest book, Sally shares the 100 or so recipes she's gathered over a year of growing, cooking, setting up school and house and managing an eccentric household of family and other animals. Like Nigel Slater's Kitchen Diaries, and Sally's early best-seller, A Year In A Bottle , this is a charming portrait of tree-change and a cookbook to treasure.
