|For anyone wanting a business of their own for their future wealth - May 20, 10:58 AM|
There are two types of people in the world; 1. Those who are happy working for other people for the security (such as it is) of a regular pay-cheque and for the supervised management of their day to day. And 2. The entrepreneur/business owner who wants the independence and power to direct their own future.
Would it be OK if I present my business offering which might just suit you as well. I run it in conjunction with two other businesses and they merge seamlessly saving lots of time.
This might be an opportunity for you
This article may be of interest to anyone who is open minded and likes to keep their options open. It is about an opportunity to earn extra income from a part-time business that can also help to build the wild food (and medicine) industry literally, from the ground up.[READ MORE..]
|Do Prehistoric Taste Drives Still Rule our Lives? - May 6, 10:14 AM|
I have often spoken about our instinctive taste drives but recently, while looking for a reference on this topic, I realized that I had not written about it.
It appears that we have at least 4 biological taste drives that regulated how we survived in ancient times without food pyramids or dietitians. These drives are determined by our subconscious minds and I discovered an interesting statistic that our conscious mind engages around 2000 synapses while our subconscious mind utilizes over 4 million synaptic pathways. Clearly we are way more subconscious than logical.
So what are these taste drives and how do they affect our nutrition today?[READ MORE..]
|The 12 Tastes - create appealing dishes from the ground up - Mar 21, 09:14 AM|
So many chefs still seem to ignore the basic building blocks of food – the 12 basic tastes or taste-smells.
First let me list them and then I’ll discuss how some of them can pair up to balance each other. Some can be disguised and others are to be avoided once you are aware of their existence.[READ MORE..]
|Can't lose weight? Here's Why... - Jan 17, 01:59 PM|
If you’ve tried to lose weight before and failed, it is probably not your fault. The quality of our foods and the way your metabolism reacts are probably the causes.
There are so many rubbish diets and food plans, detox programs and celebrity systems that are more designed to sell magazines and spa retreats than help you lose weight. Think about it. If ‘qualified dieticians’ can’t agree on a sensible diet what hope do celebrities have? The best idea is to rely on the food scientists with the most up to date research at their fingertips and if they are not talking antioxidants, metaflammation, lifestyle medicine and glycobiology or are suggesting that conventional fruits and vegetables are enough for a healthy diet, then beware. They are living in the Dark Ages of nutrition.[READ MORE..]
|Environmental disaster in the Kimberley - Jan 13, 11:32 AM|
33,000 ha of the pristine Kimberly coast will be obliterated to grow a single species and far more valuable wild plants, let alone whole ecosystems will be wiped out to produce a polluting, unnecessary crop.
I have started a petition at avaaz.org and I really hope that you join me in stopping this insane development.[READ MORE..]
|Sugar in the Kimberley - sweet and sour Chinese anyone? - Nov 24, 11:37 AM|
With what I have written about sugar recently, you may understand why this report makes me scratch my head in disbelief:
‘Shanghai Zhongfu Group plans to invest up to A$700m (US$728m) in the next six years in developing land in the far north (of Western Australia) and building a sugar mill that will produce about 4m tonnes of sugar cane and 500,000 tons of sugar crystal for export annually. The company will lease 13,400 hectares (33,100 acres) of government-owned land for periods of 10 years to 50 years.’[READ MORE..]
|Is an Australian Thanksgiving a Fair Dinkum idea? - Nov 23, 09:59 AM|
I thank the readers of my blog. Thanks to those chefs and foodies, manufacturers and marketers who have supported my vision of an authentic Australian food culture based on this country’s wild foods by being my customers.
Australians often roll their eyes at the things Americans do. To many of us, their customs can range from kitch to kweer (I know that’s not how it’s spelled).[READ MORE..]

|Sugar and wheat - are these like drugs to us? - Oct 2, 06:30 PM|
We all tend to carry more fat than we ought even though some of us hold it well either as cushioning for our organs or as fatty deposits in our blood vessels. There is an increasing incidence of non-obese diabetes so the following is relevant to everybody wanting to live a long, healthy life.
However, we continue to get fatter as a population …[READ MORE..]

|Wild fish (barramundi) with the world's best garnish - Aug 5, 08:33 AM|
Here’s a recipe which might initially set you back but I once prepared it for US Celebrity BBQ Chef, Steven Raichlen when he dropped in for a 9am BBQ at my place. He was a little jet lagged and seafood for breakfast might have been pushing the envelope a little but he did ask me to showcase some Australian wild foods for the BBQ and seafood was my choice.[READ MORE..]
|More on sugar: this might explain the term Sickly Sweet. - Jul 20, 07:15 AM|

|Does the food business stack up - An article in today's Age - Jun 5, 02:13 AM|
Interesting article in the Age today:
It’s well worth reading as it affects us and our families personally.
It is deeper and more critical than just the issues that the article presents. There is another consequence to our fruits and vegetables being bred for the distribution chains. Our food is drifting away from providing our ideal nutrition and just becoming a commodity. This introduces a cost to the public purse as Government health budgets blow out with the rise in diseases of nutrition (DON).[READ MORE..]
|Herbal-Active® and Fresher-Longer® - ingredient sanitizers - May 22, 10:45 PM|
Using Herbal-Active® or Fresher-Longer as a dipping solution is a way to not only improve the food safety of the food dipped but it extends the shelf life dramatically.
A recent trial with strawberries got them going 25 days past the control which was a moldy mass by day 9. Cherry growers can avoid the toxic fungicides they now use replacing two mixtures (one used in Australia is banned in Europe) with my natural herb and spice extract. Cucumbers and zucchini are particularly susceptible to fungal attack and our natural antimicrobial has been shown to extend the shelf life of dipped zucchini to over 4 months.[READ MORE..]

|Wild foods, health and a global recession - Apr 2, 09:34 AM|
This blog is not for everyone. It involves wild foods only in that my primary opportunity revolves around a wild food product but this blog has more to do with business, the economy and your personal finances and future lifestyle.
It addresses a real issue in today’s global economy and how we can each prepare for tougher times.
Imagine if you had no debts; no mortgage, no car, credit card debt or personal loans.
Think about this: Most of us earn income part-time, that is, when we work in a job or even as a small business owner, we only bring in the money 40 to 60 hours a week. Unfortunately, if we have any kind of debt we are spending full-time. Interest clicks away 24 hours a day, 7 days a week irrespective of our earnings.
So where do most people end up when they earn part-time and spend full-time?[READ MORE..]
|Resveratrol - reversing the toll - Mar 26, 01:59 AM|
Kakadu Complex is extremely rich in resveratrol and since piperine (an essential oil from pepper) also in Kakadu enhances the absorption of resveratrol nearly 350% there is no better whole food source of this antioxidant than Kakadu. To put in into perspective, one bottle of Kakadu Complex delivers as much resveratrol as is in 437 bottles of red wine – that’s over 36 dozen bottles![READ MORE..]

|An interview about wild foods, nutrition and future developments - Feb 20, 06:47 AM|
I was kindly invited to be interviewed by national Australian radio personality, Margaret Throsby on ABC Classic FM recently.
The segment was well received and many listeners wanted to learn more about Kakadu Complex (although I couldn’t mention it by name on public radio) and the many benefits it delivers and why I call it the antidote to modern foods.
