I’ve been experimenting for a while for a nut free, grain free, dairy free “muesli” bar that will hold together for the school lunches. This is the current best attempt so far. The challenges are that what holds most bars together is the grains and loads of sugar plus they’re […]
Hey everyone – so today is a day when I’m getting back on track with being organised and pre-prepared. There have been a lot of things going on and what with Dom being sick and then us going overseas and then back again it all got a teeny bit […]
Generally speaking I don’t miss eating traditional bread at all since “going Paleo” over a year ago. As I write that I’m thinking two things:
First, saying you’ve “gone Paleo” is just never going to sound right is it? But if it’s not Paleo then we need to come up with another way […]
So I was going to say with this post “Here’s Chef Dom’s Lunchbox – it only took 5 minutes to put together the night before using leftovers and fruit and kept in fridge overnight to make for nice cool lunchbox and an easy morning.” But then I read the sentence […]
Good question. Sometimes I wonder this myself. I definitely try to always have a plan of what I’m going to do for the week ahead (and sometimes further out that than) but sometimes I don’t do the plan or sometimes I do – but then things don’t work out as […]
How’s your week going? If you’re looking at stainless steel lunch boxes here’s another to consider. It’s a LunchBots lunch box. We love this one as well as the Planetbox. They have different pros and cons. I’ll do a post on that as soon as I get a spare moment […]
Another Chef Dom lunch in his PlanetBox:
Interested to know if many of you make your own lunches?! Comment below “buy” or “make”. I know when I was working in an office I used to either buy it or more often just not eat any and keep working through…
One thing I […]
If you have children what’s their most favourite lunchbox item – the thing you just know they will always eat? If it’s a fruit then put that down but let us know what is their favourite non-fruit item too. For Dom it would be olives (as well as any fruit).
Chef Dom’s real food lunchbox today – just a mix of leftovers from dinner last night and trying something new with the apples – coating them in cinnamon – great little trick as tastes yum and hides any slight browning that might be going on with the apples by morning. This […]
Coming up with varied, balanced, quick and easy lunch box meals that children will actually eat is a daily challenge for parents around the world. And when by necessity or because of dietary preference you’re trying to avoid all processed foods as well as grains, gluten, dairy and/or nuts then things can […]
Chef Dom Lunchbox from last week:
- Peaches & madarin
- Fish & lettuce
- Haloumi cheese & beetroot (cooked in coconut oil)
- Roasted capsicums
- Baked kumara (sweet potato) chips
- Green olives.
Good morning everyone! Hope you’ve had a great weekend. I’m feeling renewed enthusiasm for getting back to some basics of real food after attending the Pete Evans event yesterday.
The focus was very much on the fundamentals – regular home preparation and consumption of bone broths (aka great stocks), fermented foods […]
Recently I came across a great blog by Kelly, an Australian Mum. The blog is called Be A Fun Mum and it’s filled to overflowing with brilliant ideas for things to do with children. More than anything though the blog is about appreciating the small things in life and particularly […]
I just love Michelle Tam’s blog Nom Nom Paleo www.nomnompaleo.com and her book of the same name. Her lunchbox ideas are fantastic.
Today we were inspired by Michelle to come up with these Salmon Zucchini “Sushi” Rolls for Chef Dom’s lunchbox. They’re fairly easy to do – use a […]
Meatballs! Who doesn’t love a bite-sized mouthful of meaty deliciousness?! Kids for sure love meatballs which presents a great opportunity to work some extra veggies (or perhaps even some nutrient dense organ meat) into the mix.
However, for this recipe we kept it basic (with a mix of ground beef and […]
