smash the green peas roughly either by hand or by using a blender or food processor. Make sure to keep it chunky as this is not a puree. Combine the smashed peas into a bowl with parsley, egg, lemon zest and coconut flour. the coconut flour will thicken the mix and allow it to hold its shape when cooking. season with salt and pepper and taste to check.

Quantities of almond meal or rice flour will need to be doubled – just enough so that the fritter will hold its shape when cooked.

Add the ricotta last, smashing it through the pea fritter batter – make sure to leave nice chunky bits of ricotta through the mix. Heat a pan over a low heat with a little olive oil. Cook spoonfuls of pea fritter mixture - as much as you would pikelets or small pancakes. You should get about six green pea fritters.

Most of my childhood memories are based around food and family. Camping on the Murray River, vegetables from the back garden, large family gatherings, weekend getaways with friends, birthday celebrations, Christmas, Easter – you name it, we celebrated it! From freshly baked bread to tables filled with food, this issue’s ‘family feasting’ theme is about getting back to basics and enjoying the simple things in life, like I do; family and food. I am sure everyone can remember a moment where time almost stood still because you just got so wrapped up in the company of loved ones and the act of sharing homemade food? I would love you to share your favourite family dish with us over on our Facebook page this month. Happy eating.

Have you ever thought about fundraising in support of Coeliac Queensland? Coeliac Queensland does not receive government funding and is reliant on membership, donations and fundraising to survive. Coeliac Queensland is fortunate to have a group of dedicated supporters in Cairns who regularly fundraise to support the work we do for regional families. For example, this group of loyal volunteers spends many hours volunteering at the Cairns Ironman event. Instead of paying the volunteers, Cairns Ironman donates the “wages” to Coeliac Queensland. The group starts at 10am and works through until 1am (with quite a few of the group working the entire 15 hour shift, or more). For several years, their job has been to provide runners with a “Finisher” t-shirt at the completion of their event.

We also have fundraisers participating in large community events, such as the Bridge to Brisbane fun run, who combine their event activity with fundraising. One of these fantastic fundraisers is Sophie who is raising money to support Coeliac Queensland and her sister who was diagnosed with coeliac disease three years ago. If you are interested in fundraising for Coeliac Queensland, please contact our office on 07 3356 4446 and we can assist with tools and resources to make your fundraising experience enjoyable and rewarding. You can also fundraise and collect donations online using Everyday Hero. To view Sophie’s fundraising page and make a donation visit https://b2b2015.everydayhero.com/au/sophie

Volunteer organiser Ann Sherwood says it is generally a long, hard day but her group has loads of fun while they help out. “It’s always cold, wet, sunny and windy – but awesome fun!” she says. “The competitors are always so appreciative of the volunteers. We have been doing this for five years now – and we can’t wait for next year!” Fifteen hours straight is definitely a long shift and, in 2014, they faced constant rain and cold winds the entire time too!

Mayonnaise has always been a much loved addition to many Aussies’ favourite foods, but many have sadly had to go without due to a variety of food intolerances and allergies. Thanks to a new vegan mayonnaise by Roza’s Gourmet Sauces however, this problem is no more – proving you really can have it all when it comes to enjoying food. A recipe two years in the making, Roza’s has created a traditional tasting mayonnaise without the ingredients that many food-allergy sufferers and vegans have to avoid. It’s soy, dairy, egg, nut and gluten free, which means everyone, no matter what your diet, can enjoy it. Not just vegan friendly, this mayo is also animal friendly, with 20c from the sale of every jar of Roza’s Vegan Mayonnaise donated to the HSI (Humane Society International) Australia. So not only will your mealtimes be a whole lot saucier, you’re also giving back to the community. www.rozas.com.au

THIS YUMMY MUMMY { PUTTING THE MEANING BACK INTO WHOLE FOOD COOKING } Words Samantha Kirton

As a mother of two gorgeous girls, Kira Westwick understands the need for healthy food. Together with her husband, Kira runs an online health program focused on weight loss and wellbeing through wholesome, sustainable and delicious options. Certified in nutrition, personal training, pilates and yoga, this dynamite most of all loves to spend her time cooking healthy recipes for her family. With her Wholesome Kids eBook, Kira is intent on helping parents build a healthy food culture in their home and to inspire children to consciously fall in love with whole foods. Her mission? To bring back the joy and wisdom of cooking and sharing whole food as a family. You have an amazing list of accomplishments. What prompted you to inspire others through whole food eating? I grew up in a family where food was valued as the foundation of every celebration and the majority of our meals were prepared from scratch. Our lunchboxes were filled with home baked treasures, as we couldn’t afford the processed food that we find in lunch boxes today. With this amazing whole food foundation, I was a very active and healthy child. In my early twenties however, my health started to decline. It started with glandular fever and ended in chronic fatigue. I was stressed, depressed, exhausted and had lost all enthusiasm for life. With little answers from the doctor, I began my own research. The day I took responsibility for my health was the day I started to get my life back and what began to unfold was a lifechanging realisation that the wrong foods and lifestyle choices were fueling my illnesses, and therefore the right foods and lifestyle would be the only ‘medicine’ that could heal me.


YUM. | KIRA WESTWICK

You’ve once been quoted saying that Jamie Oliver is your ‘foodspiration’. Why is this? Jamie Oliver is using his fame to raise awareness of the importance of getting back to real food. Getting back into the kitchen and finding the joy that comes with cooking and sharing whole food, as a family, is fundamental to our health and happiness. Who we let cook our food is a direct reflection of how healthy we are. Food corporations have been working hard for decades to dismantle our culture of home cooking and I think it’s time to take it back! Jamie shows the world how fun, easy, delicious, budget friendly and convenient it can be for even the busiest families to bring a whole food culture back into the home. Tell us about your experience on MasterChef: I was incredibly lucky to be part of MasterChef 2014, where I was able to show my passion for delicious healthy food to the nation. It was by far the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and the most outside my comfort zone I’ve ever felt. I grew so much through the experience and it’s given me the confidence to really chase my dreams – if I can do that, I really can do anything! Why is gluten-free eating important to you? My family and I don’t subscribe to rules or labels. We eat intuitively and our diet loosely resembles a combination of paleo and vegetarian meals as this is how we feel most vital. I choose to avoid gluten not because I believe grains are inherently bad for us, but because what man has done to them has made them unhealthful.

Nowadays wheat is vastly different to the traditional seeds of antiquity, having been specifically bred with a much higher gluten content and grown twice as fast and twice as hardy. It is then stored for months on end, not only reducing nutrient content but also being subjected to fumigation, fortification (to replace deteriorated nutrients) and nitrogen flushing for preservation. We can easily see why grain sensitivities are on the rise, especially when they are one of the most convenient and over-consumed foods in our diet. What are your favourite gluten-free meals that you like to prepare? Thai and Mexican are the most popular cuisines in my home, which is perfect because traditional recipes are largely gluten-free already. Pulled chicken on baked sweet potato with guacamole and salsa is always a winner. My clean and gluten-free versions of fried chicken and salt and pepper calamari often make a special appearance too. When it comes to dessert, my clean raw salted caramel slice and sweet potato brownies are divine and the most popular recipes on my blog too. How do you stay healthy? The key is balance. When I have balance in my ‘5 Fs’ (family, friends, fitness, food and fun), I feel centred and happy. I also listen to my body and I count vitality rather than calories.

Steam or microwave until pumpkin is soft.

Preheat oven to 150°C. Grate the lactose free cheese. Open out the chicken thighs on a plate and put a spoonful of basil dip on top of the thigh.

While the pumpkin cooks, place the tomatoes (whole) onto a tray and place into the oven with the chicken. With a handheld stick blender, fork or masher, mash the pumpkin into a puree once cooked.

Gently sprinkle the grated cheese evenly on top of the basil dip. Very carefully wrap a piece of prosciutto around the rolled up chicken thigh (don’t be disheartened if the prosciutto breaks, as it will get crispy and delicious when cooked!). Repeat for all remaining chicken thighs. Place the thighs gently on a lined tray and put in the oven until the chicken is cooked and the juices run clear (approximately 20 minutes).

Add a teaspoon of Indian spice mix (curry powder etc) to the puree with a pinch of salt and pepper and set aside. Remove the tomatoes from the oven once the skins start to shrivel and split. Serve the chicken, pumpkin mash and tomatoes together and enjoy. + Serves 4 + Prep: 30 min. Cook: 20 min.

HOMEMADE RISOTTO To be honest, I have to give credit to my wonderful husband for this recipe. This is the best risotto I have ever had (and I am not a risotto lover by any stretch of the imagination) and this recipe will have you craving risotto daily.

{

INGREDIENTS

}

2.5 litres of gluten-free vegetable stock (check for no onion as well) 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 1 tbsp Nuttelex (or butter) 4 sticks celery 600g risotto rice 250ml dry white wine ½ cup cashew nuts 1 cup butternut pumpkin 1 tbsp garlic (crushed) 150g parmesan (finely grated)

Prepare the stock and keep it simmering on the stove to keep hot (as an optional extra, add a pinch of saffron to the stock to fragrance and colour the risotto). Put olive oil in a separate large pan and add the diced celery, Nuttelex and garlic, cooking for 15 minutes until the celery is soft and translucent. Add the rice to the celery mixture while stirring, once the rice is coated in the liquid add the white wine continuing to stir until the wine has evaporated (approximately 1-2 minutes).

Once you have used 500ml of the stock, add the butternut pumpkin then continue adding the stock, one ladle full at a time. Once 2L of the stock has been used, check the texture of the rice and if it is undercooked continue to add some more of the remaining stock until the texture is to your liking. Finally, stir through the parmesan and the cashew nuts. Enjoy while hot with a nice white wine and some crusty gluten-free bread. + Serves 8 + Prep: 30 min. Cook: 1 hr.

Begin adding the stock one ladle full at a time, slowly adding more once the rice has absorbed all the mixture.

AUBERGINE STACK This is such a yummy and fun recipe to get your daily dose of vegetables. The best part is, you can modify the recipe to suit whichever vegetables you enjoy.

{

INGREDIENTS

}

1 large eggplant, 1cm thick slices 1 capsicum 1 zucchini 400g can tomatoes, diced 2 cloves of garlic, crushed 1 tsp dried herbs (whatever is on hand: thyme, parsley, basil etc.) 100g grated lactose free cheese 50g goats cheese 2 eggs 2 tbsp olive oil freshly ground salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 180°C. Prep your vegetables: cut the aubergine into thick slices, cut the zucchini and capsicum into strips.

Place a slice of aubergine on a lined tray, followed by the capsicum and the zucchini.

Pan fry the vegetables on an oiled flat or griddle pan (I like the griddle pan for the pattern it creates) until they are lightly charred and are beginning to soften.

Then place one egg on next followed by a good helping of the tomato mixture then crumble half of the goats cheese for each stack on top of the sauce, then repeat the stacking

Once the vegetables are ready, place the can of tomatoes into a saucepan on medium heat, adding herbs of your choice and garlic, plus a pinch of freshly ground salt and pepper.

Once you have completed the stack, top with half of the grated lactose free cheese on each stack.

While your tomato sauce reduces, fry the two eggs in a separate pan until brown underneath but the yolk is still running. Once the tomato mixture thickens to the consistency of tomato sauce, remove from the heat. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now ready to STACK!

Place in the oven for approximately 10 minutes or until the vegetables within the stack have cooked all the way through. By this point, your cheese will be melting away on top. + Serves: 2 + Prep: 20 min Cook: 10 min.

ROAST PORK My father created a wood-fired oven which creates the best crackling and tender juicy pork. However, this recipe is just as easy in an oven and doesn't require you to tend a fire.

{

INGREDIENTS

}

3kg leg of pork, boneless 8 sprigs of rosemary freshly ground salt (approximately 3 tbsp) cooking twine

Place into the oven for 30 minutes to develop the crackling, then reduce to 170ยบC for 4 hours or until the pork falls apart easily.

Preheat oven to 250ยบC. Open out the pork leg and lay 4 springs of the rosemary on the inside of the leg, opposite to the skin.

Remove from the oven and cover with aluminium foil, leave to rest for 15-20 minutes.

Then roll the leg of pork with the rosemary inside exposing the skin. Served with apple or cranberry sauce. Score the skin of the pork in a checkered pattern to create lovely crackling then dry with a paper towel. Once the skin is scored, tie the pork with cooking twine so that it does not open when roasting.

+ Serves 8 + Prep: 10 min. Cook: 4 hr. Rest: - 15-20 min.

Rub the freshly ground salt into the skin of the pork ensuring that every score contains plenty of salt.

SUGAR FREE BAKING (Available from October 3, 2015)

By Carolyn Hartz This 78-page comprehensive book is a personal journey with Australia’s first sugar free pioneer featuring an indispensable guide for the home baker to serve up real, guilt-free recipes. Carolyn began her sugar and gluten free journey 27 years ago when she was diagnosed with pre-diabetes and gluten intolerance. The 67 year old found the answer to the natural sugar free sweetener she’d been looking for – Xylitol – a 100 per cent all-natural sugar free sweetener that is derived from birch trees, the husks of corn cobs and found in many fruits and vegetables that we can eat on a daily basis. She started her own company, Sweetlife, in 2002, growing her business as her message resonated with people who needed to cut back on their sugar intake. Sugar Free Baking is $29.95 and stockists will be listed on the website. www.sweetlife.com.au

YUM. | THE MUESLI

BOWLED OVER { W H E N M O S T S U P E R M A R K E T C E R E A L S A R E L A I D E N W I T H S U G A R , H E R E ’ S A B R E A K FA S T B O W L W O R T H J U M P I N G O U T O F B E D E A R LY F O R }

Above, The Muesli founder Emma Dumas and her range of breakfast muesli.

When and how did The Muesli come about? The Muesli was specifically developed circa 2004 at the request of numerous clients of a good friend of mine – personal trainer, nutritionist and health and fitness expert Donna Aston. These clients were people with enough understanding of the importance of health and fitness to seek out a personal trainer and regularly go to the gym. For many of them, managing their diet was even more difficult than getting to training at 6am. Breakfast was their major problem, but with the selections on shelves ranging between 10 per cent and 48 per cent sugar content, they never stood a chance! Then, in 2005, when I took part in a ‘weight loss’ trial on Channel 9’s ‘What’s Good For You’,

I actually started to take seriously what Donna had been telling me and her clients all along – cut out processed foods. I lost close to 8kg over six weeks and have kept it off with ease, sticking with the initial principles, but simplified down into my own formula called The One Line Rule. Since 2005, I have simply read one line on any nutrition panel: sugars. As long as they’re below 5 per cent, I will consider eating or drinking it. The best part in all of this was that I had already developed a product that was perfect – all natural and unprocessed, with a sugar line that read 1.9 per cent. The shelves were still packed with sugar and I decided that there was a big empty space where ‘Emma’s Muesli’ should be sitting. So in 2010, I removed the hairnet and gloves


YUM. | THE MUESLI

and stopped chopping nuts in the Thermomix in my home kitchen to begin commercial production of The Muesli. What sets The Muesli apart from other breakfast cereals? A combination of two things. Firstly, the premium blend. Sixtyfour per cent of the mix is the finest quality raw nuts, seeds and coconut before there’s any trace of fillers – which in our case are delicious and nutritious puffed amaranth and brown rice flakes. Then secondly, there’s the fact that it is naturally sugar free – just 1.9g/100g (1.9 per cent). Sugar has been in the news a lot lately, is it another fad diet? What makes sugar different? It’s not a fad diet – it’s an actual research-backed fact that reducing sugar intake will enhance your health on a range of different levels. I’m sick of dietitians and nutritionists sitting on the fence with comments like “we shouldn’t be targeting one food group only” or “everything in moderation”. Firstly, we’re not targeting a food group, and as far as I can see eating ‘everything’ in moderation is giving yourself permission to eat badly! Quite simply, there is already enough sugar occurring naturally in whole raw fruits, vegetables and dairy to count as ‘moderation’ in a balanced diet. So, any sugar (added to, or in, any packaged or bottled food or drink) should be avoided. How do you eat The Muesli in the morning? It’s been so cold in Melbourne the last couple of weeks that I wanted to move away from my delicious stock standard Greek yoghurt and some fresh fruit or frozen berries. I also wanted to experiment with bircher style so I added a spoon of chia seeds to my normal serve, covered it all with milk, gave it a stir and put it in the fridge overnight. It was a revelation. As happens with chia when wet, most of the liquid had been absorbed. I gave it a stir and tasted it as is – it was amazingly sweet and really delicious. The puffed amaranth gave it a fabulous toasty taste and I loved eating it. So I did the same again but this time I popped it into the microwave and gave it about a minute for, again, a deliciously sweet bowl of The Muesli porridge. In the spirit of this month’s mag theme ‘family feasting’, what’s your favourite meal to cook for your family? I love to use The Muesli to make a rough crumb for crumbed cutlets (see recipe, right). Also, we like a delicious tomato, onion and eggplant layered ‘pie’ with The Muesli and butter topping and some yummy vegetable patties (using whatever I’ve got in the fridge). Again, this one is easy to make and gluten free.

CRUMBED CUTLETS WITH MINTED YOGHURT {

INGREDIENTS

2 cups The Muesli Gluten Free 2 tsp ground cumin 1 tsp turmeric ½ tsp chilli flakes 1 tsp sea salt 1 tsp ground pepper 2 eggs 12 lamb cutlets MINTED YOGHURT: 1 cup Greek yoghurt 1 clove garlic, crushed juice and zest of one lemon 1 tsp mint, dried or fresh dash of Tabasco sauce, to taste 1 tsp ground white pepper 1 tsp sea salt Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Blitz The Muesli in a food processor until you form a coarse flour. Add the cumin, turmeric, chilli, salt and pepper and blitz for 5 seconds to combine. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs. Dip the cutlets in the egg and then cover with muesli mixture. Place on baking tray lines with baking paper. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn over and then bake for a further 10 minutes until crumb is crispy and brown. Meanwhile, to make the yoghurt, simply combine all ingredients in a bowl. Once lamb is cooked, serve with minted yoghurt. Photo credit: I Quit Sugar + Serves 4 +

Andi Lew is a qualified food, lifestyle and wellness coach and coauthor of two best-selling books, Eat Fat, Be Thin and Eat Fat, Be Lean, which created a ‘fat food’ movement. Following the success of her books, Andi launched a culinary school in St Kilda, Melbourne, where she educates and inspires people to cook ‘fit food’, fast. Her school caters for people with food intolerances or who want paleoinspired meals. Though also recognised as a television personality, Andi’s most rewarding job she says, is being mother to her son, Beaudy, 5. How and why did you get into the fitness and wellness industry? I’ve always been a fan of all things natural, ever since I was small. I remember being 5 years old and getting upset by people smoking or from being forced to ingest cough medicine and the resulting hallucinations it gave me. There’s also the fact that my mother was a health food fanatic and we were never allowed any junk foods or drinks. As an adult, I worked as a fitness instructor for holiday resorts around the world. I found the chiropractic philosophy of not putting anything artificial into your body and allowing your body to heal itself by improving the workings of the nervous system, made complete sense. I started to write books about wellness as a result of my discoveries.

more mindful about your eating. It’s when we ignore the signs and symptoms and carry on with an unhealthy lifestyle, that something more serious manifests. Do you eat gluten-free? I love to eat gluten-free and replace oats with quinoa or millet. There are so many other grains that are so much fun and I don’t miss gluten at all. If I am out or someone has made something with gluten though, I will still eat it because I am not intolerant as such and I figure it’s the exception, not the rule. It’s important though to watch for hidden sugar in gluten-free products. You’ve just released your own product range – tell us about it The Real Fit Food Amazebars came about as a result of the success of my books – the recipes contained within were so popular. The Cacao Crunch is the same recipe as the original Amazeball. Readers asked for a bar because they didn’t always have time to make the ball. The Lemon Slice Amazebar is proudly 20 per cent protein, packed with micro-nutrition like chia seeds and good fats from almonds and coconut. Both bars tick all the boxes. They’re vegan and free of artificial ingredients, wheat, gluten, dairy and processed sugar. They’re also low GI and proudly made in Australia.

Tell us about your Real Fit Food Cooking School. I’m a fan of cooking and creating healthy recipes. Participants in my school really take a hands-on approach to healthy food preparation in a stunning kitchen with views of St Kilda Beach. During the classes, I teach the principles of cooking healthy, paleo-inspired food. I also educate about which foods to eat and when, which fats to ditch in order to lose weight and I debunk some common myths behind sugar and salt. I have other health professionals join me, providing information on the importance of gut health and demonstrating how chiropractic care may also help with digestion. Your thoughts on gluten-free living? When you make a decision to go gluten free – whether it’s a forced decision because you’ve been diagnosed with coeliac disease or because of an intolerance – I view this as a good thing. It means your body is giving you signs and signals that it wants you to be

Upon taking my seat at Asana by Pete Evans, it became obvious that the decor was reflective of the food – thoughtful, classy, unrefined, creative and transparent. The dining room contains an open kitchen and is spacious and comfortable. It’s encompassed by glass to give diners an unobstructed view of urban Brisbane. There are pops of bright colours in quirky chairs, glass water bottles and paper cranes. This design fits in with the paleo diet which has nothing to hide, heroing real food with no gluten, grains, dairy, refined sugar or

preservatives. The chefs can also answer any question about the menu, as nearly everything is made in-house. I was stunned by my incredible starter. It was a massive array of meats, fermented vegetables, beetroot hummus, olive tapenade, chicken liver pâte, paleo toast and seed crackers. I was especially impressed by the seed crackers. They are made solely of seeds and nuts and are baked to perfection to become the perfect carriers for each of the beautiful dips. And can we just talk about the chicken liver pâte for moment?

was so amazing I would have been thrilled to have another few jars of it for my main but, wait, we’re only onto the entrée! Course two of the night was a selection of two entrées: lemongrass prawn skewers with sesame, organic salad and nouc cham (a type of Vietnamese dipping sauce) and Middle Eastern spiced kangaroo skewers with pomegranates, mint and sesame. The kangaroo was truly impressive, cooked beautifully on a bed of chopped nuts, seeds, herbs, fennel, green olives and pomegranate. The ingredients complimented each other so well that it created an incredible flavour that I have never tasted before… and one I cannot wait to taste again. On to the mains. Two exquisite dishes were served: gingerbraised beef short rib with Asian greens and roasted barramundi, sweet potato purée, lime and coconut sauce. The ginger-braised beef pulled apart effortlessly. It was the comfort of home cooking lifted to the pleasure of fine dining. The fresh salad on top was just what the rich beef needed to balance the whole dish. The barramundi was also cooked to melt-in-your-mouth perfection, with the added bonus of perfectly crispy skin on top. It was hard to believe that there was no dairy added to the smooth and creamy sweet potato purée.

With little room to spare, out came the sweet treats I had been eyeing all night. I couldn’t believe my luck when I was offered all five desserts on the menu! There was raw raspberry mousse cheesecake with whipped coconut and berries, cacao and coconut mousse with warm brownie and nut bark, coconut panna cotta with seasonal fruits, lemon pound cake with vanilla coconut creme and hazelnut brittle and the last one was a paleo tiramisu. With each dessert just as rich and satiating as the one before, it was hard to believe they were all gluten, grain, dairy and refinedsugar free. Asana by Pete Evans at the Capri by Fraser hotel in Brisbane has truly outdone itself. Every dish was stunning, the staff were attentive and warm and the vibe was one of relaxed enjoyment. Check it out, for an epic gluten free, paleo-inspired feast. Enjoy!

bushes. I shall never forget the magic of such a close encounter with the wild. It was one of those life-defining moments that makes you evaluate your life and where you’re headed. We then hurried to the nearby Alaskan Brewing Co. to enjoy a few good beers – I needed one! The idea seeded at that point. Bears lead to beers!

The idea for our beer was originally sporned, believe it or not, from a close encounter with a family of black bears in Alaska. While taking a walk to visit a glacier, with an armed wilderness guide, I suddenly found myself separated from the group and just two metres from three cubs and a mumma black bear crossing the path. I should have been terrified but she was magnificent. She stopped, looked into my eyes for a lingering moment and then all four disappeared into the

We had an organic vineyard at the time and we decided to add an organic beer to our healthier lifestyle beverage range. We also had, however, several gluten intolerant and coeliac friends who kept asking, “Please make a gluten-free beer because we can’t find any that are nice.” So we decided to make a gluten-free beer that was also reasonable priced. We have done that. It’s very popular even with people who have no issue with gluten because they like a great

tasting craft pale ale that is a healthier choice. It is called WILDE because of our wild bear experience and to denote that glutenfreedom can be fun. What makes WILDE gluten free? Beer is usually made from barley and/or wheat. Gluten is a component of many grains, including barley and wheat. Australian Koala Beer Pty Ltd has had a technical breakthrough with alternative grains that do not contain gluten, to produce a quality GF beer. WILDE tastes like normal beer. WILDE is preservative free. It is a clean natural beer. WILDE is also the tastier option for the healthconscious drinker. Fill us in on the awards you have won and how it made you feel to be recognised for such a great quality brand. Yes, we feel very excited and proud every time we are awarded. WILDE Gluten-Free Pale Ale has been awarded a silver medal at the Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA), a gold medal by the New Zealand Brewers Guild in 2014, as well as two bronze medals. The AIBA is renowned for celebrating and promoting brewing excellence in both Australia and around the world. It is the largest competition for the beer industry in the Asia Pacific region.

Unlike sports competitions where gold, silver and bronze represent the top three places, beer medals are awarded to the entrants who achieve a certain level of judges’ points to recognise the beer’s quality. Therefore, there could be several golds or no golds, depending on how many beers are above the points threshold. It is generally recognised that if a beer has achieved any medal, it is a fine example of the class. It is a challenge to create a perfect flavour profile in the gluten-free class. In the AIBA 2014, no gold was awarded in the gluten-free section, so our silver was the top award. What are you most excited about for the rest of 2015? We are most excited about releasing our new beer, WILDE Raspberry Gluten Free Pale Ale and later in the year we plan to release our third beer, which is still under wraps. Our success thus far has brought us into exciting times. We are not only branching out with new products but also teaming up with interesting people and events that embody our company philosophy. Drinking WILDE is about lifestyle. Making better choices, being free to enjoy life and exploring beyond the ordinary. We have a big caravanning road trip planned to canvas the more hard-toreach areas in Australia with our product. We will be documenting those adventures on social media and you follow us via the hashtag #gowildebefree. Seek the extraordinary!

# tasting notes WILDE Gluten Free presents as a golden pale ale. Careful selection of hop variety gives the beer a citrus and pine character in the aroma with floral hints which rounds out the beer, with a bitter but clean, flavorsome finish. A slight tartness from the malt balances nicely with the bitterness, giving a lift that leaves you wanting more. The beer has been crafted with no added sugar, colour, nor preservatives. Gluten Free WILDE Raspberry was created to give health-conscious drinkers and coeliacs the opportunity to enjoy another refreshing and interesting beer in the WILDE range. The daring inclusion of fresh raspberries provides a delightful pink hue, a raspberry aroma and a fruity balance to the bitterness of the varietal hops. Natural raspberries are fermented with the grain to provide a delicate complexity and a midstrength 3 per cent alcohol. Your nose will also pick out citrus, orange and mandarin aromas. WILDE Raspberry is a refreshing pale ale style of beer with a wonderful colour and flavour, crafted with no added sugar, colour, nor preservatives. WILDE provides peace of mind for the growing number of health conscious, gluten intolerant and environmentally aware consumers, who demand tasty products to support their healthy lifestyles. Koala Beer Pty Ltd was founded upon the premise that beer should not only taste great, it should be a clean natural product. www.wildebeer.com.au Facebook : www.facebook.com/Wilde Beer Twitter: @Wilde_Beer Instagram: @Wilde_Beer

INGREDIENTS

}

FOR THE CAKE: 35g buckwheat flour 35g white rice flour 35g brown rice flour 1 ½ tsp baking powder ¼ cup strong brewed coffee 200g good quality dark chocolate, chopped 200g butter, chopped 2 tsp vanilla extract 1/3 cup cocoa powder 1 cup caster sugar 3 eggs, room temperature FROSTING: 180g butter, softened 4 cups icing sugar, sifted ½ cup cocoa, sifted 1/3 cup milk raspberries, to decorate (optional)

Preheat oven to 180ºC (350°F). Line two 20cm (8 inch) round cake tins and grease the sides.

After removing cakes from oven allow to stand in tins for about 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Add remaining ingredients and beat on medium to high speed until they are combined and change to a lighter colour. Once the cakes are completely cooled, sandwich together the layers with about one-third of the frosting. Cover top and sides with remaining mix. Pile raspberries on top to decorate (if using).

While warm, stir in vanilla extract and cocoa. Add eggs one at a time alternating with the sugar, stirring well between additions.

Cake will keep, well covered in refrigerator, for up to four days. Allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

Add flour mixture and use a whisk to gently combine. Divide mix between two pans and bake for until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean (about 30-40 minutes depending on your oven).

GLUTEN-FREE, WORRY-FREE HOLIDAY { TRAVELLING WITH COELIAC DISEASE CAN BE TRICKY, BUT NOT SO WHEN YOU STAY WITH THE EXPERTS } Words Bianca Shugg

One of the lucky elements of my job is that I get to travel a lot and sometimes with my family. However, travelling with coeliac disease makes life more difficult. Lots of forward planning, snack preparations, calling ahead and constant (and I mean constant) double checking. On my recent trip to the Gold Coast for a cookbook photoshoot and The Real Food Revolution, I was lucky enough to discover and experience the incredibly beautiful Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa. From the moment I arrived I was blown away by the attention to detail from the staff. This instantly created peace of mind. While checking in though, my two girls were not helping my peace-of-mind state! On minimal sleep and out of routine, my girls decided to show everyone just how tired they were. From crash tackling each other in the foyer to screaming for a teddy bear that we left at home, my embarrassment level was growing by the second. But again, the reception staff were so lovely even offering some small chocolates to distract the girls (although I politely declined - trust me, they did not want to see a combination of tiredness and sugar!). Once finally checked in, I took the girls for a quick walk around the property to see what we could discover - and the property didn’t

disappoint. Stunning white sand pool beaches, a waterslide and even an artificial reef with tropical fish. Simply superb. On our way back to our room, we also scored a celebrity sighting. Geoffrey Rush was also staying at the resort and we could only assume he was part of filming on Pirates of the Caribbean. Returning to our room, we discovered a parcel of gluten-free food (including wine – they must have read my mind!) and two adorable teddy bears for the girls – gifts from management. Again, attention to detail was outstanding. This resort was ticking so many boxes and I hadn’t even eaten yet! With a crisp, cold glass of white wine in one hand, I made the best call of our stay. I called reception and asked for them to please organise a babysitter for that evening and to make a booking for three guests at their inhouse restaurant, Misono Japanese Steakhouse, as I had invited my parents to join me. Hands down, dining at Misono has been one of my most memorable food experiences to date. From a gluten free/coeliac perspective, the staff are well informed and educated on our needs, which was a breath of fresh air. I instantly felt comfortable and able to really enjoy the

dining experience that is Misono. The food was fantastic (the scallops are AMAZING), clean, fresh, packed full of flavour and by the end of our meal, they nearly had to roll me out – I was so full! While the food was brilliant, the night’s entertainment was what really took the spotlight. What an incredible experience – you couldn’t wipe away my smile or stop my laughter! The chefs were mind-blowing good. It has been so long since I have felt comfortable and relaxed eating out, in regards to gluten contamination. We enjoyed a really, really good night of food and entertainment – probably the best since my coeliac disease diagnosis – and to have that experience while away travelling was such a lovely surprise. I would highly recommend this restaurant to people with coeliac disease. The staff’s knowledge and appreciation for Coeliac sufferers was impressive. To top off our stay, the following morning, the Marriott’s breakfast restaurant Citrique didn’t disappoint either. Once I told the staff member who was looking after our table of my coeliac disease, she personally walked me around the breakfast buffet pointing out my best options and also clarifying questions directly with the chefs so that I was 100 per cent comfortable with my food choices. Overall, our stay at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa was exceptional. Even the room service menu had ample gluten-free choices. It’s clear they have taken the time to educate themselves on all things gluten free and then made it a priority to share these learnings with grateful GF guests.

BUCKWHEAT PANCAKES WITH BACON {

INGREDIENTS

}

1 cup buckwheat flour 1 cup almond milk 1 egg ¼ tsp GF baking powder (optional - not paleo) coconut oil, for frying 100g bacon few spoonfuls maple syrup

RAW MATCHA CHEESECAKE {

INGREDIENTS

}

1 cup raw almonds 1 cup desiccated coconut 6 dried pitted Iranian dates, soaked in water for 10 minutes ¾ cup coconut cream ½ cup honey 1 ½ cups raw cashews, soaked for 2 hours in water and then drained ½ cup virgin coconut oil 1 tbsp matcha (green tea) powder

Whisk together the buckwheat flour, almond milk, egg and baking powder. In a frypan over a medium heat, add a small ladle of batter and cook until bubbles start to come through the top layer. Flip and give it 1 minute on the other side. Meanwhile, in a separate pan, fry the bacon until nearly crispy. To serve, put a small stack of pancakes on a plate, top with bacon, and drizzle with maple syrup. + Serves 2 +

In a food processor with an “S” blade, process the almonds and desiccated coconut until it reaches a fine breadcrumb-like consistency. Add the dates and process a little more. If the mixture is not coming together, add 1-2 teaspoons of water and process until the mixture starts to become sticky. You can test this by pressing the mix against the side of the food processor bowl. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a 22cm springform tin. Using the back of a dessert spoon, smooth it down until it’s nice and even. In a high speed blender or food processor, blend the coconut cream, honey, cashews and coconut oil until silky smooth. Add the matcha powder and blend again briefly until combined. Pour into the springform tin, cover and freeze for 2 hours or until set. Remove from freezer for 15-20 minutes prior to eating. + Serves 12-16 +

HEALTH PROGRAM TACKLES FATIGUE IN BUSY WOMEN 12-week online program covers diet, stress relief, gentle exercise and low-toxin living. Byron Bay, NSW: After running her first round of Shiny Healthy You in May 2015, Jules Galloway is back with a much anticipated second round – for women who are tired, suffering from adrenal fatigue, or just fed up with feeling below par. What sets this program apart from others is that it’s run by a qualified naturopath, holding a Bachelor of Health Science and 10 years of practice experience.

SLOW COOKED LAMB SHOULDER {

INGREDIENTS

}

1.5kg lamb shoulder (may be cut into pieces if you like)

Participants receive: • Three video lessons each week for 12 weeks • A recipe bank with over 100 wholefood options • Meal planning and shopping list templates • A pantry detox and restock list • Three live and interactive webinars • A private Facebook group to interact with other participants • Plus extra bonuses and loads of support.

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil The program is not one-size-fits-all. Participants are not given strict meal plans. Instead, they are given a recipe bank full of healthy meal options and are encouraged to come up with their own weekly plans.

1 brown onion, chopped 1 stick celery, chopped finely 2 garlic cloves, crushed 1 bay leaf 1 x 10cm sprig of rosemary, stem discarded 4 sprigs fresh thyme (or 1 tsp dried thyme leaves) 1 large carrot, diced

“I want my members to come away with the knowledge of how to do this on their own, while feeling inspired and to get into the kitchen and create delicious meals,” says Jules.

2 cups mushrooms, sliced 3-4 cups chicken stock (or bone broth) pinch of salt In a large heavy-bottomed pot, add the olive oil and brown the lamb shoulder over a medium heat. Remove and set aside, making sure you collect any juices that run off. Into your pot, add the onion and celery and sauteé over a medium heat until onions are translucent. Add the garlic and stir for one minute. Pour in the stock, add your meat (and juices) back in, along with the bay leaf, rosemary and thyme. Bring to the boil and then simmer, covered on a low heat, for 2½ hours. Add the carrot and mushrooms and continue to simmer covered for half an hour, and then uncovered for half an hour. Serve with sauerkraut on a bed of either quinoa or sweet potato.

The emphasis is on a nourishing whole food diet, with all recipes being gluten, dairy and cane sugar free. Both paleo and vegetarian participants will also be catered for. Main meals, snacks, and healthy drinks are all covered. The program also covers yoga, meditation, fitness, life coaching, natural skincare and toxin-free living, to ensure an holistic and balanced approach to wellness. “If one facet is missing, it can throw your whole body out of balance,” says Jules. Shiny Healthy You begins on September 7. The program will be available for purchase from August 17- September 4 and costs $129. There is an earlybird special of $99 if you purchase before August 31.

Imagine walking through the train station, stopping at a vending machine and purchasing a made-fresh-daily, gluten-free meal on the go. This dream has finally become a reality thanks to All Real Food. All Real Food has created the first ever self-service cafe that offers breakfast, salads and sweets delivered by technology that tracks minute-by-minute sales, stocktake and environmental conditions. Genius. As exciting as this invention is, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discuss the details. Every meal is made fresh daily and has a four-day shelf life after purchase. After 24 hours in the self-service cafe, the leftover meals are removed and donated to local food banks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; never wasted. The fridge is restocked with delicious, healthy meals every day.

Each meal is 100 per cent gluten free, organic where possible, locally and seasonally sourced and chef prepared in a five-star commercial kitchen. All Real Food has truly hit the mark by offering a wide range of meals to include additional options such as dairy free, paleo, vegan, vegetarian, raw and more. The integrated touchscreen technology makes for quick and easy ordering while browsing the variety of options, nutritional information and even health tips. The meals offered range from Tex Mex Salad, Pesto Pasta Salad, a range of salad topping proteins, Quinoa Parfait, Chia Pudding and Choc Mint Slice. The individual servings are a great size for a satisfying meal and are boosted with superfoods, nuts and seeds for ultimate nutritional value and taste. The design of the cafe

itself is aesthetically pleasing including a vertical herb garden to enhance the organic experience. The colourful and healthy options and user-friendly interface create a welcoming environment that will certainly have you coming back again. All Real Food co-founder Mark Woodhead says there is so much information available today about diets and dieting, including healthy eating trends, it can be incredibly overwhelming and confusing. “Our mission is to simplify healthy eating and just provide real food,” Mark says. “All of our fresh produce is sourced from Australia and New Zealand and it’s part of our ethos to keep things local, and organic as much as possible.” The self-service cafe concept was developed and executed by Mark and fellow IT professional Danny Stalling (pictured above). Both Danny and Mark have a passion for health and holistic living and are thrilled to bring real food to the table.

“I’m passionate about working with only the finest seasonal produce, preparing everything from scratch and letting the ingredients speak for themselves,” Keng says. The touch-screen technology of the self-service cafes is simple to use and provides ample information about each product, its contents and health benefits. The technology is so advanced that if the cafe’s internal temperature rises above or drops below a certain set point, the cafe will immediately close and alert the All Real Food head office. Customers can register a unique key tag to receive bonuses, discounts and special offers. The meals are packaged in BPA-free food-grade PET plastic jars with a food-safe freshness seal and are made from either sugarcane starch or 100 per cent recyclable plastic. Every aspect has been carefully thought out, including the layering of each ingredient to ensure the food stays fresh, crunchy and appealing.

“We believe food should look and taste delicious and be a joy to eat,” Danny says.

Watch out Brisbane, a world of gluten-free convenience has officially arrived! And stay tuned to All Real Food. With smoothies, soups and other ready made meal ideas in the pipeline, this is just the beginning.

Another integral team member, Keng Murray, has combined 20 years of cooking experience with his passion for wholesome foods as the holistic head chef of All Real Food.
