Fermented Foods Class

Trupp Cooking School Fermented Foods Class & a Giveaway!

 I attended the class as a guest of Trupp’s Cooking School

No doubt you’ve seen by now that fermented foods are making a rather large comeback in Australia right now, with drinks like kombucha and foods like kimchi becoming much easier to find in our shops and restaurants. I’ve been trying to introduce them to my diet but hadn’t gotten to the point of actually making my own at home, so when I was invited along to the Lost Art of Fermented Foods Class at Trupp Cooking School I jumped at the chance to learn more!

Surprisingly non-vegetarian foods

Surprisingly Non-Vegetarian Foods

I’ve been vegetarian for about 5 or so years now, and as I already had some friends who were vegetarian and vegan I had an advantage in knowing what to look out for on packaging to make sure I wasn’t accidentally eating non-veg friendly foods. Today I thought I would share some of the surprisingly non-vegetarian foods I have come across, which will hopefully be helpful for anyone thinking of cutting meat out of their diets, or even if you’re cooking for vegetarian friends!

Coconut, Almond & Date Cookies

Recipe: Coconut, Almond & Date Cookies

Whenever my folks come over they look to see if there’s any baked goods in my kitchen, and they’re always disappointed if they come up short. So the next time I was heading out to visit them I knew I better not show up empty handed so whipped up these coconut, almond & date cookies which were definitely well received!

My Favourite Simple Living Quotes

If you’re part of the I Spy Plum Pie facebook or instagram family then you might have seen some of the quotes I like to share (and if you’re not, now is a great time to join the fun!).

I like to share quotes about both food and sustainability (my two passions!) as I think it’s important to keep some of these ideas front of mind, so I thought I’d share some of my favourites here today too! I’ve been having a bit more of a play on pinterest lately too, so if you’re looking for some more of my favourite quotes hop on over there too!
