Shop! ..My products

mystaranise

I decided at the end of last year not to wholesale any of my products to shops. Apologies to those of you who have gone into GRUB or OVVIO looking for my activated nuts, raw dark chocolate balls or nut balls not to find them on the shelves! The long and the short of it was that I just couldn't keep up with the ever-growing demand. Nice problem to have, I know, but I was reluctant to open up commercial premises to meet the demand as my ethos is and always was to keep my products hand-made home-made in small volumes to maintain the highest quality and freshness. So I only sell my products from my home in Bronte. To purchase, simply call, text or email me and pop over at a mutually convenient time to buy or simply sample and have a chat. My price list is located on the Products page. I still deliver to the gyrotonics studio in Paddington every Thursday afternoon.  Everything is in stock below other than pate. I'm also moving my focus to nutrition education, cooking classes, workshops and retreats (alongside retail sale from home). Keep your eyes on the current events page for more info!

Plan for Breakfast!

mystaranise

Breakfasts in our house revolves around eggs - cooked any way, sometimes with bacon or sausages, or sometimes teamed with steamed or sauteed greens lathered in butter and served with yoghurt with fruit and a smoothie. What a way to start the day! Sure beats cardboard (a.k.a boxed breakfast cereals) in terms of both nutrition and taste. Does it sound like a lot of effort? It's not really. Practice makes perfect and over the years the whole breakfast preparation is done and dusted within 10 minutes (door to door, or more accurately, fridge to table). Its a small price to pay for setting yourself and your kids up to the best start to the day- physically, emotionally and intellectually. This brekky gets me through from 7am until at least 1pm. 6+ hours! I was lucky to make it to 10am without clawing the walls when I was eating grains for breakfast many moons ago. The high saturated fat content is akin to throwing a log on the fire- it keeps the fire going for a long time before you need to refuel it. A high carbohydrate meal (grains, breakfast cereals, toast etc), is akin to throwing kindling on a fire - you need to replenish it more or less constantly to keep the fire going. I don’t know about you, but I’ve got better things to do than eat all day long.   Lately I've been adding 1-2 tablespoons of very gelatinous home-made beef bone broth to our milk smoothies (sounds weird I know but bare with me on this one) and no one at all has tasted the new addition (quite surprising as beef broth has a quite strong taste when heated but in jelly form straight out of fridge its quite tasteless). So if you're having a tough time getting your kids (or other half!) to consume bone broths or eggs then try popping them into a smoothie made with whole milk, coconut water, yoghurt, cinnamon powder, vanilla powder and fresh fruit (eg 1/2 mango, banana or a date) and I bet you your kids will be none the wiser (...well they WILL be wiser with all that healthy saturated fat and quality protein needed for healthy brain function but they'll be largely oblivious to the reason why!).
