Revive the senses through feel-good food. Just do anything food-wise, no matter how small, that makes you zing: pour hot water over fresh herbs for a fragrant tea; buy a whole organic pumpkin for a kitchen table centrepiece; thank a farmer at a farmers' market; put your hands on warm earth; spot a local rosemary bush; snag some for your lamb roast or your hair (Why not? Go nuts!); and comment to share your feel-good spring snippet. If stuck for ideas, mine are yours. Let's unite in support of feel-good food and ethical food practices. Thanks to all too who supported my Spring Feel-Good Food Project. I had a blast! While my food interests are diverse, so is my food writing history (and lifestyle freelance writing and corporate writing, yada...). Please see below right and my new FoodLit Website. Yeah! Please also subscribe for occasional food-fuelled news, ventures and opportunities.

Smiling Kiwis. Day 7, 85 To Go...


While supporting local businesses is my preferred way to shop, I have to give credit where it's due. Aldi sometimes really dishes up the goods. This 5-tray dehydrator, at around 40 bucks, turns an excess of fresh fruit into chewy, flavour-packed, long-life, really tasty snacks.

Once the fruit's been dehydrated, the sugars get more concentrated, so it's very sweet and, of course, hasn't got all those nasty sulphurs in it that most bought dried fruit has. 

You also get to arrange the fruit in nice spirals like I did with the plump, smiley kiwis I spotted at a local store - and check on them every few hours to remove what's ready and rearrange what's not. 

It's a nice little project to break up the hours spent on the computer trying to create a cleaner, greener life....

The dehydrator pops up at Aldi about twice a year. Let me know if you're interested and I'll give a shout out here when I next see it.
