“yum.” It’s the universal word for flavour and great taste. It’s the verbal reward for any cook who has spent time behind a kitchen bench. It is also the name of this, the latest Australian online magazine celebrating, exploring, understanding, informing and reviewing anything and everything gluten free.

Bianca was the founder and managing director of a boutique parenting magazine and has held other positions in marketing, communications and publishing.

wendy somerville Foodie| wendy@yumglutenfree.com.au

Wendy has had a passionate affair with food all her adult life. After starting out as a picky eater as a kid, in her 20s Wendy was vegetarian (except for the bacon in her mum’s ‘rescue package’ quiches). She ventured into meats tempted by the beautiful pictures and recipes in Gourmet Traveller magazine, and after a trip to Europe in 2004 came back a converted carnivore. There is little she hasn’t eaten or tried. She is now enthusiastically modifying recipes for coeliacs, ensuring their edibility in the process.

Pictured above left, Well Naturally launches its No Sugar Added chocolate in major supermarkets; Noshu’s guilt free donuts are revolutionising the perception of doughnuts.

Well Naturally’s No Sugar Added On average, Australians consume approximately 54 kilograms of sugar per year – the equivalent of 37 teaspoons per person, per day. The World Health Organisation recently released its much-anticipated guidelines for sugar consumption, recommending that sugar only contributes to five per cent of the recommended daily energy intake – or around six teaspoons a day.

an ideal diabetic and carb conscious snack. NOSHU guilt free donuts are made with all natural colours and flavours and only the highest quality virgin organic coconut oil – rich in medium chain fatty acids, which are not stored by the body as fat but used immediately for energy.

Well Naturally is launching a new range of No Sugar Added Chocolate family share blocks in both dark and milk varieties (available in the health section of Woolworths from mid September and in independent supermarkets and health food stores from October). The 90g blocks are available in Dark Chocolate: in Mint Crisp, Rich Dark and Acai varieties; and Milk Chocolate: in Creamy Milk and Fruit and Nut varieties. Well Naturally is also integrating its AntiOx brand under the Well Naturally No Sugar Added umbrella. www.wellnaturally.com.au

Popular among the paleo community, their light and moist cake-like texture is thanks to a unique recipe comprised of low-starch, grain-free flours and fibres including coconut flour and pumpkin purée. Designed to be an allergy-aware treat, NOSHU donuts are made without nuts to be lunchbox friendly, also containing less than 1% milk solids and zero preservatives. NOSHU products are sweetened with a blend of two natural sugar substitutes: Erythritol – a naturally occurring substance in fruit and vegetables, which has almost negligible calories and no impact on blood sugar, plus a small amount of the highest quality pure Stevia – a natural sweetener derived from the leaves of an Amazonian herb. www.noshu.com.au

Noshu Our baked, gluten-free, no added sugar, naturally sweetened cake donuts are low carb, low GI and average 160 calories per serve. Noshu claims that each baked donut has less carbs, less sugar and more fibre than a medium apple, making them

S o i t ’ s n o s u r p r i s e h e r m u lt i - m i l l i o n d o l l a r ac tive empire covers all bases. } Words Nicole Navarro

With the Move Nourish Believe blog and Active Living magazine already motivating Lorna Jane Clarkson’s “sporty sisters”, the launch of her new cookbook, Nourish – The Fit Woman’s Cookbook, seems just a natural next step. In fact it’s the perfect complement to her highly sought after activewear line and recently launched Active Living Rooms – Lorna’s one-stop health shops with fitness studio, nourishing café and Lorna Jane store. Before she jets off overseas, Lorna spills the beans on her passions, being active, nutritionally healthy and how gluten fits into her life. Where do you call “home” these days? Australia will always be my home. I’m so fortunate to have a job that allows me to travel and see and experience some amazing places, but I have to say, nothing beats the feeling of coming home. We really are lucky to be living in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. When travelling, what are your must-have carry-on items to munch on or drink? Now that ‘Lorna Jane ‘ is an international brand, I have to travel overseas frequently. Luckily I’ve mastered a few strategies to keep my health in check when I travel so I can continue to look and feel my best. Whenever I fly internationally I always pack an esky full of healthy food such as veggie sticks and hummus, homemade bliss balls and some salad with protein. As soon as I board the plane I ask the cabin crew for some ice and put this in my esky so my food stays fresh for the entire journey. This way I know I’m eating healthy food that is made with the best ingredients possible. I also make sure I stay well hydrated on the flight as I think this is one of the best things you can do to prevent jetlag. I’ll drink water and caffeine-free herbal teas, which I also pack in my well-travelled esky.


yum. | lorna jane

‘Healthy and active living’ has been a key part of your brand’s campaign and success… how did you pick this growing trend from such an early stage? Since the very early days of Lorna Jane, my goal has been to inspire women to move their bodies and embrace active living. This was my motivation for starting the brand and designing activewear that inspired women to get active was a way to achieve this. There has never been a moment that I realised I was onto something, as I simply do what I love, which is encouraging women to get active. I guess if there was an ah-ha moment, it would be when women first started telling me how much more inspired they were to work out when they felt confident in their activewear. It’s this return to a healthy and wholesome approach to food and nutrition that I’ve found women are now interested in, which is why I wrote Nourish. Speaking of Nourish – The Fit Woman’s Cookbook, will readers find any gluten-free recipes in it? I didn’t set out to avoid gluten in any of my recipes, but my diet doesn’t tend to include a lot of it. I don’t have coeliac disease or

intolerance to gluten, but I have found that foods that make me feel my best are naturally gluten free. Because of this you’ll find most of the recipes in my new cookbook are gluten free. If you visit the café at one of our Active Living Rooms you’ll also find an array of delicious gluten-free food. Share with us your favourite gluten-free treat... One of my favourite sweet treats would have to be my raw chocolate and chia cake with berries, which you’ll find in Nourish. It’s made with a selection of nuts, cacao, raw honey, vanilla bean paste, coconut cream and berries. What does ‘nourishing the body’ mean to you? To keep it real. You are what you eat and I strongly believe there is a firm connection between what we eat and how we look and feel. For this reason I nourish my body from the inside out with healthy and whole foods in their most natural state like fruit, vegetables, nuts and organic lean meats. These foods just so happen to be naturally gluten free. What else are you particularly passionate about when it comes to good nutrition? I’m also passionate about not dieting. Diets can have a terrible

effect on your physical and mental health, not to mention your mood and even social life. Eating is all about balance and if you fuel your body with nutritious food, you don’t have to deprive yourself by going on a diet.

smoothies or throw in salads, and cacao nibs, which are delicious in raw desserts and even as a snack on their own.

What are your tricks to maintaining a healthy diet?

I have always had a sweet tooth and often find myself searching for something sweet after dinner. For me personally, my alltime favourite indulgence would have to be chocolate. A couple of squares of good quality dark chocolate or a chunk of my homemade raspberry and hazelnut chocolate and I’m happy.

The key to staying healthy is a little bit of preparation and organisation. I always research health food stores and organic cafes that are close to where I’m staying and then as soon as I arrive at my destination, I head out for a walk to pick up some healthy supplies.

How do you satisfy your sweet cravings?

How important do you think the role of quality drinking water plays in good nutrition?

My husband Bill and I don’t actually eat out very often as we much prefer sitting down to a nourishing, home-cooked meal. If we do decide to go to a restaurant, I always order lean protein like grilled fish with a selection of healthy sides like steamed greens or a fresh salad. We always share dessert! It’s not only romantic but it also keeps our sugar intake in check.

Water is the number one essential ingredient for good health and the cheapest anti-ageing potion on the planet. Every single part of our body needs water to function, so naturally, the more fresh and clean water we consume, the better we are going to feel.

Share with us some of your cooking secrets...

What are your no-no’s to maintain your peak nutritional level?

I tend to choose foods that are delicious, nutritious and real. Some of my favourite things to cook with are peanut butter, which I spread on apple slices or add to my morning oats (sometimes the occasional spoonful straight from the jar), kale, which I add to

Over time I have discovered the foods that do and don’t agree with my body. My no-no’s are anything sugar-laden, processed or with ingredients that came out of a science lab. I’ve also found dairy milks don’t agree with me, so I


yum. | lorna jane

prefer nut ‘mylks’. My favourite is macadamia mylk, which I make from macadamias grown in my very own backyard. What do you like to load into your diet to maximise great nutrition?

There have been so many, but a highlight would have to be opening our first store in the United States in 2012. Little did I know that just two years on we’d have more than 30 stores across the US as well as 150 in Australia. And in life?

Superfoods. Blueberries, kale, chia seeds as well as probiotics to improve my digestion. How important do you think relaxation is? I make a point of finding ‘me time’ every day because it’s so important to wind down and clear your mind. I’ve found some of my best ideas have come to me at times when I’m relaxing, which goes to show the benefits of taking time out. Where is your favourite place to relax? I’m definitely my most relaxed when I’m at our beach house near Noosa. The combination of fresh sea air, amazing hiking trails, stunning beaches and delicious local produce is the perfect recipe for a weekend of pure and utter relaxation. Give us a glimpse into an average week of Lorna Jane Clarkson… Every single night for as long as I can remember, I have set myself up for the next day by laying out my activewear to change into when I wake up. This is a great motivational tool as it’s an instant visual reminder that it’s time to get up and get active. I’ve always been an early riser and I like to start my day with some exercise, meditation and a healthy breakfast. I’ll do either yoga, a weight session, a run or sometimes just a walk with my dog, Roger. This morning ritual gives me the energy and mental clarity for the day ahead. Once I arrive at the office I’ll do everything from brief the designers, meet with the editorial team working on our new Active Living magazine through to meeting with our customer service and marketing team. I usually finish work around 7pm when I head home for a nourishing dinner with my husband Bill, before reading a book, walking the dog, doing a little meditation or stretching and heading to bed so I’m ready to do it all over again. Tell us something we wouldn’t know about you… I always keep a pair of runners under my desk, so I’m ready to move at a moment’s notice. What about your most thrilling moment in your career?

Without a doubt that would be marrying the love of my life, Bill. We recently celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and of course reminisced about building the Lorna Jane brand together. He has always believed in the brand and knew it could be a global success one day and encouraged me to dream even bigger. What is the biggest secret of your success? There hasn’t been a single key to the success of Lorna Jane, it has been the accumulation of many things and a lot of hard work. We have a dynamic young team that believe in our dream and are just as focused and committed as my husband and myself. The fact that we have always listened to our customers and remained authentic to our brand philosophy has definitely played an important part in the success of our brand. Social media has also allowed us to engage with our customers in a way like no other. We now have a total social media reach of more than 1.5 million and growing daily. Any words of advice you’d like to impart? If you have a dream, make a plan and start now. There is no better time. Active Living is so much easier than you would think if you break it down into a daily practice of move, nourish, believe. Moving doesn’t have to be a big session at the gym it can be as simple as just walking the dog. Likewise nourishing can be maybe just promising to eat more veggies and less sugar.

Melbourne’s healthiest catch { T he y ’ v e got u s hoo k e d , l i n e a n d s i n k er } Words Michelle Dryburgh

Fish ‘n’ chips. It’s one of life’s simple pleasures. Rivalled only by a meat pie and beer, it’s the epitome of ‘easy meals’. Of course, both of these Aussie icons are just as foreign for coeliacs who watch in envy as others enjoy their battered flake and salty chips, relaxed and carefree. Even the oilstained paper wrapping serves as a sore reminder of the simplicity coeliacs crave. Gluten-free pizza on the other hand is everywhere. Major pizza chains have embraced the gluten-free base and glutenfriendly ingredients, making it easy to enjoy at least one

safe and simple take-away meal with friends, albeit more expensive. But few have ventured into the world of glutenfree fish and chips. Melbourne restaurant ‘Hooked’ is somewhat of a pioneer, offering gluten-free fish and chips and putting a healthy spin on the traditionally frowned upon take-away. Englishman Ray Good opened the first Hooked restaurant in Melbourne’s Windsor eight years ago, wanting to combine his passion for healthy food with his love of fish and chips. His customers shared that passion, and Hooked is now a critically-acclaimed Melbourne icon with restaurants in Windsor, Fitzroy and Hawthorn.


yum. | hooked

Crowned the home of Melbourne’s ‘Best Chip’ by The Age, Hooked has also received glowing reviews from The Urban List, Gourmet Traveller and Jetstar Magazine. Dedicated gluten-free fryers ensure hand-cut potato chips can be kept 100% gluten free. Seafood can be grilled or battered in a gluten-free mix and served with a side of salad, chips or rice and Asian greens. The tacos can also be made gluten free using corn tortillas and topped with a choice of house-made gluten-free sauces. “We’ve also been lucky enough to team up with some of Melbourne’s best chefs on some of our menu items, including Ravi Presser (Feast of Merit, Fonda Mexican) and Neale White (Papa Goose),” Ray says. “We’ve continued to grow our healthy offerings; we’ve switched from white rice to brown rice and we’ve expanded our salad options. We also try to cater as much as possible for people with other allergies and intolerances, including those on a low FODMAP diet.” Environmental responsibility is also important to Hooked;

they don’t sell flake and their house fish is certified sustainable. Ray says customers can expect some exciting new options on the menu this summer, as well as ready-to-go lunches for customers on the run. For those dining in, the Fitzroy and Windsor restaurants are fully licensed, providing an enjoyable contemporary atmosphere for a healthy meal and drinks with friends. “Fish is naturally such a nutritious option, high in lean protein, a good source of omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, so it’s a great option,” Ray notes. “We value all of our customers and love that we have such a strong gluten-free following. We want to continue to cater to our gluten-free customers as best as possible and always appreciate any feedback on which other gluten-free items they’d like to see on the menu.” Locations: 669 Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn, 384 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, 172 Chapel Street, Windsor www.hooked.net.au

Let them eat ‘good’ cake { how a painting class inspired a solution for allergy sufferers } Words Michelle Dryburgh

When Corry and Darryn found out their one-year-old son was allergic to gluten, dairy, egg, and nuts they wondered what on earth he would eat. At the time, the young family lived in a small city where allergy-free ingredients were hard to come by and very few of the books and blogs they researched covered all four allergies. “I remember going through the largest supermarket in town and finding only a handful of things he could eat,” Corry says. “We found it hard, and we really wanted our son to grow up enjoying food.”

Co. was born. Corry, Darryn and Nicole simply wanted people with the top four food allergies to be able to eat good cakes, like the rest of us. And now they can. But The Good Cake Co. is different. They don’t have a shop and are not planning to open one. They rarely cater for events – taking on just a few each month. They do sell their cakes though, but you have to be quick, as they only accept a few orders each week.

Preparing main meals was straightforward – with lots of fresh vegetables, fruits and meats. But desserts and baking were another story, so Corry and Darryn began to experiment.

“Our real passion is innovation,” explains Darryn. “We love to try new things rather than baking hundreds of the same cakes each week. Our aim is to inspire people by sharing our creations and, very soon, our recipes. We’d love it if people made these wonderful cakes themselves.”

A few years after this, Corry met Nicole at a local painting class. Each week Nicole brought a plate of gorgeous vegan cakes to share and one evening Corry took some home.

It’s early days for The Good Cake Co., who plan to share their efforts with the rest of us through their email community, their blog, which is coming soon, and a recipe book they are currently writing.

“It was seriously good,” Darryn says. “As I stood in the kitchen late that night, eating this fantastic cupcake, I wondered... if we combined our knowledge, could we create allergy-free cakes that looked and tasted as good as any other cake?”

If you’d like to follow what The Good Cake Co. is up to, join their growing online community. And as a little gift, they’ll send you their gluten-free flour recipes. According to the Good Cake Co., the right flour really makes all the difference.

So together they experimented, and in the mix The Good Cake

fresh new spin on catering { R ac h e l f o u n d h e r passio n , n ow s h e ’ s s h ari n g i t wi t h S y d n e y } Words Michelle Dryburgh

Coeliacs often cringe at the mere mention of the words ‘catered event’. It usually means platters of sandwiches and sausage rolls, and tiers of cakes and slices chock-full of gluten, dairy and sugar.

vegetarian and even vegan sweet and savoury dishes. ‘My Wholesome Kitchen’ began delivering this fresh new spin on catering in 2013, and is now the caterer of choice for sophisticated Sydney events including those of top beauty and fashion houses.

And that means going hungry. Or at least sitting in the corner nibbling on a blackened emergency banana or squashed gluten-free bar.

“I never expected to start a business, it just kind of happened,” says creator Rachel Gorney.

All that is changing for Sydney siders thanks to one of city’s hottest new caterers, offering gluten free, sugar free,

“It’s been a really enjoyable ride so far, and it’s become something I never knew was possible.”


yum. | my WHOLESOME KITCHEN

Becoming a clean eating icon couldn’t have been further from Rachel’s mind when she quit her job as a make-up artist in July 2012, hitting what she describes as ‘rock bottom’ shortly after. She had struggled with her weight for many years and found herself in a deep state of depression. Deciding to make a change, Rachel sought professional help including advice from a health coach who introduced her to a new way of eating: removing gluten and sugar from her diet. “I’d always enjoyed cooking from quite a young age, so that wasn’t new, but this style of cooking was very new to me. Spending more time in the kitchen was therapeutic and I found myself experimenting with new ingredients and recipes. It was fun, and the people I cooked for were really enjoying it.” Word of mouth soon saw Rachel receiving orders from complete strangers. Realising the market for her products, she launched into a six-month trial making and selling boxes of homemade allergen-free sweets and finger foods.

It was a success, and My Wholesome Kitchen was officially launched in 2013. As well as event catering, My Wholesome Kitchen has an online store with an offering of more than 20 products including healthy bars, balls, muffins, crackers and dips. There’s also sweet and savoury subscription boxes to ensure customers never run out of My Wholesome Kitchen goodies, and easy online ordering for office and minor event catering will also be available soon. For now, catering services and product delivery is limited to Sydney, but Rachel is hopeful of expanding that reach by opening My Wholesome Kitchen in other capital cities. “So many people are living with food intolerances and it’s nice to be able to make food everyone can enjoy,” she says. “I also love the idea of people gifting each other and themselves with lovingly made, nutritious food. It’s nice to be a part of that. I really love what I do.” www.mywholesomekitchen.com.au

Begin this recipe a day ahead. In a bowl combine the strawberries, sugar and liqueur. Stir and leave aside to sit for approximately 30 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove a couple of spoons of the strawberries and 1/4 cup blueberries and set aside. Place the remaining strawberries, the sugar mixture and blueberries into the blender and blend until smooth. Pour the blended strawberries through a fine sieve to remove the strawberry seeds. Return the berry sauce to the blender with the yoghurt and blitz until smooth. Pour the mixture into your ice-cream maker and process according to instructions. Pour into a suitable freezer container and swirl through the whole berries, which were previously set aside.

Meat Potato Pies

bite-size mini Salmon Cakes

{ Ingredients }

{ Ingredients }

12 medium-sized round potatoes

1½ cups potato flesh from the scooped potatoes

1/2 brown onion, finely diced

in the recipe to the left, or leftover mashed potato

1 clove garlic, minced

400g tin salmon, drain and check all bones are removed

1 carrot, peeled and diced

1/4 brown onion, grated or 1/2 bunch of chives, finely

1 piece of celery, diced

chopped

4 button mushrooms, diced

1/2 sml parsley bunch, chopped (about a tbsp)

400g lean beef or lamb mince

1 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs

2 tsp gluten-free cornflour

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp nutmeg

pepper to taste

1/4 tsp cinnamon 1/2 cup gluten-free vegetable or beef stock good pinch of ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 180°C. Wash potatoes and place in a baking tray, drizzle with a little olive oil and cover tray tightly with foil. Place in oven until cooked through, mine took about 1 hour and 10 minutes. While the potatoes are cooking make the meat filling. Heat a large frypan with oil and brown the onion over medium heat. Add the garlic, carrot celery and mushrooms and cook until slightly softened. Add in the mince and smoosh it up with a wooden spoon to break down any big chunks. You want the mince to brown off a little, so you may want to reduce the temperature a little. After 15 minutes the mince should be cooked through and vegetables soft. Sprinkle over the cornflour, nutmeg and cinnamon, stir in and pour over the stock. Reduce temperature to low and cook for 10 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Season with pepper to taste. Set aside. Once potatoes are cooked remove from trays and carefully cut the top off each potato (about 1cm). Scoop out the flesh of the potato and set aside. Leave a 5mm thickness of flesh near the skin otherwise the potatoes won't have any stability. Stuff the potatoes with the mince meat, return the lids and reheat in the oven for 10 minutes or so. These can easily be made a day ahead and reheated and kept in alfoil for the picnic. + Makes 12 +

Heat a non-stick frypan and drizzle with a little oil. Pan fry the mini salmon cakes in 2 batches, turning after a few minutes. They cook best with little oil as they crispen up well this way. They are delicate, once again due to the lack of egg. Serve hot or cold. Very tasty with some gluten-free sweet chilli sauce. + Makes 12 +

Coconut craze is a family affair { A la s t i n g fa m i ly l e g ac y a n d fa s t- g r o w i n g c o m pa n y b u i lt o n t h e h u m bl e c o c o n u t } Words Michelle Dryburgh

Behind one of Australia’s fastest growing health foods is a heartwarming family legacy spanning four generations and more than 65 years. Launched just this year, coconut oil producer Jimalie now has nationwide distributors and a full line of health foods soon to be released. At the helm of the company is Cairns-based husband and wife Jaypee and Victoria Abraham. Jaypee’s two brothers and cousins are also partners in Jimalie, but it was their grandparents who quite literally planted the seeds when they established a coconut

farm in the Philippines almost seven decades ago. Jaypee’s father Jim developed the property into a working farm, financially opening the opportunity for him and his young family to migrate to Australia. But his commitment to the property and the people of the remote village never waned. “Dad gave them everything he could, the area is very poor and when we visited we’d find villagers wearing our old clothes,” Jaypee says. “When he passed away, we realised the opportunity we had to

create something amazing, to help in a very real and transparent way and build a legacy to him and a reminder for all of us of where we came from.” Jaypee and his family are establishing the farm as a 100% charitable organisation, teaching local people sustainable farming practices and providing much-needed income. In doing so they built a strong network with local government and other producers in the area, securing commercial quantities of coconuts from neighbouring farms through a Fairtrade agreement. The name ‘Jimalie’ was chosen as a tribute to Jim and the locality of the family farm – a village called Alejal (pronounced Alie-hal). But the business was largely inspired by the fourth generation – Jaypee and Victoria’s first-born child, Rylan. Diagnosed with autism at a young age, Rylan also suffered from leaky gut. Dietary changes were the first line of treatment. A nutritionist recommended avoiding gluten and preservatives, as well as taking a spoon of coconut oil daily to combat bacteria and maintain balance. At the time, Jaypee and Victoria operated a day spa on Green Island, near Cairns,

where they used coconut oil as a beauty product. “It just all fell into place and made sense, we had access to the oil, we knew it worked and now it could help our son too. We are more conscious of the quality of food we eat now, and where it comes from. We really love this way of living and we enjoy bringing these products to people. We hope we can make a difference.” Jimalie Coconut Oil first hit shelves in January, followed by coconut sugar and oil for skin. Nectar and aminos are due for release late this year, and coconut wraps, water, flour and milk are all in the works. Jimalie’s products are 100% natural, organic and Fairtrade certified, made from only the finest quality hand-picked coconuts from Davao, known as ‘The Fruit Basket’ of the Philippines. The virgin oils are centrifuge-extracted and never heated above 44 degrees Celsius, retaining the coconut’s antioxidant and healing properties and resulting in a pure colour and texture and a lighter fragrance and taste. www.jimalie.com.au

Don’t dream it, do it {

S teph P r em is the embodime n t o f p r actice what yo u p r each } Words Michelle Dryburgh

Steph Prem is charismatic, bright and full of life.

you love with gluten-free versions does not work,” she notes.

With a busy schedule as a pilates and fitness instructor, motivational speaker and sports commentator, it’s hard to believe she was laying in hospital with a broken back, five broken ribs and a dislocated hip just four years ago.

“Often gluten-free carb replacements taste like cardboard, so over the last few years I have become more creative in the kitchen with ingredients and finding new versions and favourites.”

It was the result of a terrifying snowboarding accident just six weeks after her Winter Olympics debut, and the end of her professional snowboarding career. But it marked the beginning of a new and exciting chapter, as her road to recovery led her on a journey of self-discovery. It was during this time she learnt she had coeliac disease, and a change in diet brought about instant results.

Green smoothies, protein smoothies and bliss balls are now a staple part of Steph’s diet, and she finds her gluten-free recipes in Lee Holmes’ anti-inflammatory cookbook Eat Yourself Beautiful and Lola Berry’s The 20/20 Diet Cookbook.

“I thought for a year that I had chronic fatigue or that I was over training, turns out I was coeliac and the minute I changed my diet I was a new human again,” she says. “My energy is restored, I sleep much better, therefore I recover much better and I have dramatically lowered the inflammation in my body.”

“I’m obsessed with my Vitamix and everything I make in it and to treat myself I love eating out at Mexican and modern Asian restaurants.” Clinical Pilates has formed a major part of Steph’s rehabilitation, inspiring her to study the practice, become a certified personal trainer and launch the Premium Performance pilates studio in Melbourne earlier this year. She is also working on an online fitness business and planning an international health retreat, as well as commentating sports events like the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Although sometimes still guilty of living life in the fast lane, Steph says she has learnt to slow down, and changed her approach to fitness, health and wellbeing.

It is this unstoppable drive and motivation that is now inspiring thousands of others to make their own dreams come true.

“I learnt early in the game that trying to replace all the foods

Marinated Salmon, Quinoa & Vegetable Maki Roll {

I ngr e di e nt s

}

1 salmon fillet

1 sml beetroot, finely grated

3 tbsp olive oil

4 sushi papers

1 clove garlic

thai kombucha dipping sauce

1 tsp ginger, chopped

1 sml red chilli

1 cup white quinoa

2 sprigs mint

baby spinach

1 tsp coconut sugar

1/2 carrot, julienned

1/4 coriander bunch

1/2 red capsicum, julienned

1 tbsp kombucha

1 zucchini, vegetable peeled into ribbons

1 tsp gluten-free soy sauce

1/2 ripe avocado, sliced

1 tsp lime juice

In a zip-lock bag big enough for your salmon, add the salmon fillet, olive oil, garlic and ginger. Close the bag, squeezing out all the air as you do it up to create a vacuum. Place in the fridge and allow to marinate for 1 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 6 hours. Meanwhile cover the quinoa with water and allow to soak for 10 minutes. Then drain and rinse. Place into a saucepan with 1 1/3 cup of water and bring to a slow boil. Then reduce temperature to low, cover with a lid and leave to absorb almost all the water (approx. 10 minutes). Remove lid, remove from heat and allow to stand for 10 minutes, to finish absorbing the water and to cool slightly. Turn out onto a plate and spread to an even layer and allow to cool completely. Once the salmon is marinated remove from the bag and discard the ginger and garlic. Bring a non-stick frying pan to medium heat and all the salmon skinside down. No need to add any olive oil to the pan as the salmon is already well coated. Cook the salmon gently until it's just over half cooked (indicated by a change in colour in the fish and the protein and fat congealing on the sides). Once just over half cooked, flip the salmon over and remove the pan from the heat. The residual heat will carry on cooking the salmon but will ensure that it is not overcooked. The salmon is cooked when it easily flakes to the touch but is still moist with a slight bounce. Allow to cool and flake into big-ish pieces. Prep your vegetables. Get your sushi paper ready and your sushi mat (or baking paper). To make the Maki rolls, place the sushi paper shiny side down on the mat. Add enough quinoa to evenly cover the sushi paper, leaving a 2cm gap between the front and back edge for rolling. Layer your vegetables however you like. Top with some of your flaked salmon and some coriander leaves. Then roll. using the mat to guide and a hand to gently squash and tuck the sushi paper down. Once the sushi paper is tucked around the ingredients snugly, use the mat to finish the roll and seal the edge. The first time might be messy but once you get it you will be rolling like a maki pro. Using a sharp knife cut the maki roll in half for bigger portions or in 8ths for smaller portions. Dipping sauce: finely chop the mint and coriander with the coconut sugar until super fine. Add into a bowl with boiling water and allow to infuse for a minute or so. Add the kombucha, lime juice to taste, finely chopped deseeded chilli, soy sauce, adjusting the flavour for your palate. { Notes } Kombucha can be purchased from health food stores or make your own. Any leftover dipping sauce makes a killer salad dressing. You can double or triple the recipe for bigger quantities. + Serves 4 + Preparation: 6 hours. Cooking Time: 0 min.

70g white chocolate

2 eggs

holy basil flowers (optional)

white chocolate to the cream and fold until evenly combined. Allow to set in the fridge. To assemble. Spoon the creme on top of the mousse and decorate with the herb flowers, baby mint leaves and chocolate shaves.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, whisk the eggs and egg yolks until very pale and fluffy. In another bowl whisk the cream to very soft peaks.

{ Note } For both the creme and the mousse, it is really important to not overwhip the cream. You want only just soft peaks for both. When melting the chocolate donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the water in the bain marie touch the bottom of the bowl or your chocolate will seize and you will need to start again. Also, a metal spoon is best for chocolate as it does not retain moisture, which is the enemy of chocolate. If your creme de cacao blanc is too stiff after setting just add a little cream and mix through to loosen a touch.

In a small saucepan bring the sour cream just to a boil, remove from heat and add the squeezed out gelatine leaf. Stir until dissolved. Allow to cool slightly. To the fluffy eggs add the cooled sour cream and slightly cooled chocolate, fold through. Then add the whisked cream and gently fold until evenly combined. The idea is to retain as much air as you can so slow and gentle is the key. Once all is combined spoon into your pots, containers or bowl. Leave to set overnight in the fridge.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t throw away those precious egg whites. I have a tasty recipe coming next that will use them right up. In the meantime freeze the beauties until you're ready to use them.

Creme: In a bowl, melt the white chocolate over simmering water or very slowly in the microwave. Allow to cool slightly.

BAKED BRIE WITH BLACKCURRANT CIDER & MIDDLE EASTERN FRUIT CRUMBLE {

I ngr e di e nt s

}

1 x 250g wheel of brie 75ml blackcurrant and apple cider 2 tsp pomegranate molasses 3 tsp honey 3 dates, pitted and sliced 5 dried apricots, sliced 3 turkish figs, sliced 20g pistachios, rough chop 20g almonds, flaked 5 sprigs of fresh thyme

Oven preheated to 180°C (fan-forced). Line a tray with a piece of foil (big enough to loosely wrap around the brie).

Pour the pomegranate syrup over the brie and put into the oven. (There should be no leaks, don’t let that syrupy goodness get away.)

Toast the almonds in a pan over a medium heat until browned. Set aside to cool and wipe out pan for next stage.

Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and unfold the foil. Top with the fruit crumble mix, spoon over some of the syrup from around the cheese, add some fresh thyme leaves and eat immediately.

Combine the pomegranate molasses, honey and cider in the cleaned pan on medium heat for about 5 minutes until reduced and slightly thickened.

{NOTE} Pomegranate molasses is a dark plum coloured, sweet/tart syrup made from the reduced pomegranate juice. It can be found in good supermarkets, delis and green grocers, and of course online, and from Middle Eastern and Indian grocers. If you can’t get hold of some blackcurrant and apple cider, I have also made this with apple and blackcurrant juice or you could just try another cider.

Meanwhile chop all your fruit and pistachios and combine with the almonds. Toss until mixed nicely. Prepare the brie, make some slices in the top making sure not to score through to the bottom. Take some thyme and press it into the slices. (I made 5 slices in the top and pushed thyme into all of them.) Place the brie into the middle of the lined foil, slices facing up, and cup the foil around the brie leaving the top open. Ensure there are no holes around the base of the foil.

Vegetable Coconut Curry I am a great fan of curry flavours with my RAW vegetables. I mostly buy my powders ready mixed. Southern Indian flavours are aromatic, not so hot and work well with coconut and cashew milks. The tip is to let the curry sit for as long as you can so the natural flavours and aromatic qualities of the curry powder infuse the vegetables.
