1. Conscious Club
The Gyuto Monks of Tibet will be at the next Conscious Club this Friday 22 April to deliver a truly rich and deep spiritual experience. I saw them last time they were in Sydney many years ago and the experience was something special.
In an intimate setting of only 200 seats at Bondi Pavilion, 7 monks will chant their most sacred hymns immersing us in this ancient sound. The head monk will also share his personal journey and what life entails as a Monk. The stage will also be graced with Murray Kyle, Australian songwriter. And of course there will be group meditation and the Do Good challenge.
Team Star Anise Organic Wholefoods will be there handing out free samples of our organic artisan wholefoods delights including dessert of signature raw cacao bars (yes please!!).

When: Friday 22nd April
Time: 6pm - 10pm
Where: Bondi Pavilion
Queen Elizabeth Drive, Bondi Beach
Price: $55 $15 for a Vegan/Gluten Free meal
2. Dairy free coconut yogurt
We are so excited to announce that we are now selling Bondi Yogurt dairy-free COCONUT YOGURT in 375ml glass jars. I wasn't really happy with the quality of some of the coconut yogurt in the market after doing some research and then in walked Carolina from Bondi Yogurt with her 2 ingredient coconut yogurt: certified organic coconut and live cultures. Add in some time and love and you've got a delicious crap-free dairy-free yogurt. Being dairy-free for the past couple months while I cleared up some health issues has seriously forced me to consider and expand my non-dairy food repertoire. I feel I can be of much greater service to my non-dairy clients in my health coaching sessions. Have you tried this coconut yogurt yet?? We sold out within 24 hours so I'm tipping you think it's pretty special too. I'm really looking forward to your feedback!
3. Beef tallow cubes
We are excited to announce a new product: BEEF TALLOW CUBES!
We have been selling 100% pastured beef tallow in containers for 5 years but to make life that little more easy for you we are now freezing our beef tallow into ice cube sized potions for you to conveniently melt down in an oven tray or frying pan to cook meat or veggies. I always use beef tallow when pan-frying meat (as it comes from the very animal I'm cooking) and now I simply throw a tallow cube into the frying pan straight from freezer. So easy- this has seriously changed my life. No more chopping up a block of frozen tallow into small pieces and having to return the rest to the freezer.
Tallow is an age-old dairy-free natural healthy saturated fat that has been used by traditional cultures world-wide for eons. You can also rub a little on your palms (with some essential oils if desired) to use as the most natural, non toxic and completely edible face, hand and body moisturiser. You can also use tallow to prevent and soothe baby's nappy rash.
This product is proving just as popular as our beef broth cubes.
4. Chocolate coated macadamias
We included a packet of these in our Mother's Day hampers and too many people demanded that we make and sell them
as a regular product in 100g packets and individually for a bite sized "I've just died and gone to heaven" hit.
If you tried my activated maccas and my sokolatas (raw dark maple sweetened chocolate) then combining the 2 is like a symphony where the end result is far sweeter, greater and richer than the sum of the parts. Sweet and salty, they make the best flavour combo. If I had to choose just one food to eat before I died, these would be it. When I offer them to customers at Broth Bar & Larder the look in their eyes goes something like "Must I? I know I'm going to become seriously addicted to these. Please don't corrupt me further". These are the bomb!
5. MINDD forum
The MINDD Foundation promotes an integrative approach to healthcare focusing on nutrition. Each year the Foundation hosts a 3 day forum designed to educate patients and train practitioners in solutions for the prevention and treatment of disease. Tickets are now on sale for the 2016 MINDD International Forum held on 20-22 May.

It is also a great opportunity to meet people in the industry.
There is a terrific line up of international speakers. NY Times best selling author and keynote speaker Dr Kelly Brogan will be leading the sessions on women’s health which is an important part of the Foundation's initiative to promote healthy kids both through pre-natal care and healthy carers. Her book A Mind of Your Own has soared to the NY Times best-seller list.
There are 2 streams to register in:
Practitioner: MAPS & Mindd training for practitioners and students with strong biochemistry background. This is the stream I attends several years ago to become a certified MINDD practitioner.
