My name is Lindsay and I’m a busy mum and healthy food pilgrim. I’m always on the hunt for creative, nutritious meals to feed my hungry family. I’m always researching recipes with appealing flavours, and which can support me on my journey to maintain a normal BMI.

I was raised in a Lebanese family in Montreal, Canada, which is predominantly French. As a youngster, the dinner table was always covered with big steaming plates of baked meats, herby salads, and endless varieties of artisan sourdough breads. I learned the value of good butter, and quality olive oil at a young age.

As a transplant to Australia, I am surrounded by quality lamb, avocado, citrus, tomatoes and free range eggs and poultry. Since I live in a suburban, semi-rural location, I am no longer surrounded by a plethora of French bakeries or delicatessens like I was in my hometown. If I want to eat well, I need to make it myself.

Alas, I experiment with sourdoughs, fermenting vegetables, vegan dishes, and flavours from many cultures. I hope you enjoy the recipes and keep in touch!
