We are a husband and wife team who share an innate passion for food, eating, cooking, health and nutrition.

Jeff (the chef) has been cooking up a storm for almost 20 years working for award winning establishments throughout his career, and is now the head chef of the kitchen at the award winning and well known ‘Wasabi’ Restaurant in Noosa.

Tara (the Nutrition Guru) is a University qualified Nutritionist. After being a dancer, a pistol shooter and a personal trainer, she now is following her passion in the nutrition industry in helping people live a healthy and happy life through diet and nutrition.

Our food and health philosophy is simple. We believe food is our medicine and that ‘we are what we eat’. We make mindful choices every day to eat fruit, vegetables, wholegrains, lean meats, dairy, spices and herbs in order to live the healthiest, happiest life we can.

We DO NOT believe in denying, restricting, or removing foods or food group from the diet or following health fads. Rather, we follow the ‘everything in moderation’ rule and allow ourselves a small treat such as a sweetie every now and again as part of a healthy relationship with food.

We aim to inspire people to try new ingredients, to live a healthy life, provide our readers with new recipes, share our cooking secrets and provide up to date credible nutrition information.

All photo’s you see are are own, taken by the Nutrition Guru of our actual dishes that we cook and all recipes are devised by us.

So get your aprons on, your tastebuds ready, and follow us for some food fun!

    I love that you don’t deny yourself or give others ideas to ‘diet’ as a way of being healthy. Your philosophy makes sense and is actually following REAL concepts about eating yummy foods in moderation, not starving yourself and becoming obsessed with foods for the wrong reasons. I have in the past been obsessed with reading the back of packets of foods to ‘cut out’ kilojoules. But seriously I know now it’s a waste of time and sanity. Eating a well balanced diet is the key!

    Hi!
    I have only in the last couple of years really got into cooking, and last year I too even started my own little food blog! I came across your blog today and decided to follow, as all the recipes that I have seen so far looks absolutely deeelicious!
    I was just wondering about your policy when it comes to other bloggers? If I made one of your dishes, used my own pictures and linked to my “original source” would this be OK with you?
    It was only yesterday I came across someone who didn’t want to have their recipes “typed out directly”, which I was surprised at, as it would be my creation even though it’s not my idea 🙂
    I am really looking forward to dive into your archive of healthy goodness and also to see what will come up next!

    have a wonderful weekend, and keep smiling!
