Orussey Market – Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh has a huge amount of markets that cater to tourists, locals and expats alike. Mick and I are lucky enough to live directly across from a small local market so we have easy access to fresh fruit and veg, meats, plastic containers, makeup, socks, soup and coffee. But if we are in need […]

Breakfast Soup

I love noodle soup for breakfast. Some people love cereal, fruit or toast, but to me nothing is more energizing or comforting than a big steaming bowl of flavourtown. Teamed up with a super strong iced coffee, this is an awesome way to start the day!

Review: Yok Yor

As most of you would assume, Mick and I love Thai food. LOVE LOVE Thai food. Interestingly, this is a relatively new thing for me, having only developed this obsession since actually living in Thailand. Prior to that, I was not a fan. It would take a lot to get me to eat a green curry […]

The things I miss about Chiang Mai

Its been several months now since we left Chiang Mai, returning to Sydney to save some money and plan the next adventure. It has afforded me the time to reflect on the nearly three years we lived in that wonderful city and all the amazing experiences we encountered. Now that the blur of moving back […]

Paleo/Primal/Real-Food Eating Update

So its been quite a while since Mick and I embarked on our new way of eating/living and I figured its about time for an update. I think we are sitting pretty at 75 days since we started eating better, cutting out crap and enjoying life some more. Sounds schmalzy I know, but hey, its […]

Review: Free Style Cafe (now closed)

Go back a few years to 2009… Mick and I first decided to pack our bags and head to Thailand  in search of an adventure, and to volunteer at an organisation who worked with Burmese refugees (specifically Shan) who were in Chiang Mai. This was an incredible, challenging and at times very hard assignment but […]

Crispy Skin Chicken with Creamy Sauce

Chicken is a staple in most peoples homes. Its grilled, fried, baked, crumbed and everything else in between. It can be bland if cooked poorly but oh so delicious when cooked well.  This way that I have been cooking it lately has satisfied a number of cravings we have had for roasted chicken and also […]

Paleo Banana & Blueberry Pancakes

So things on the health side of things are coming along really well. Both Mick and I are loving the new found energy we have, we feel great and are looking good too (if I do say so myself!). I have lost about 6/7 kilos in the past 50 or so days which is AWESOME. […]

Delicious Pork

Since getting into Paleo food ‘n’ living, I have gotten a lot more creative with cooking. It makes you really think about what to eat and how to make it the most yummy ever without adding filling empty carbs. This pork dish is one of those dishes and it is also a great all-round dish […]

DIY Refried Beans

I recently purchased a bag of black beans. I saw them, I think I was feeling healthy at the time, so I bought them…and then they sat in the cupboard for a while because I really had no idea what to do with them. Put them in a soup? A stew? Then it came to […]
