There’s nothing like getting a big, delicious avocado in The Organic Place fruit and veggie bag. I love how they can add that extra tasty goodness to almost anything, as well as all those amazing health benefits. Vitamins, folate, magnesium, potassium; you name it, avocado has it. We love it at our place as a […]
My mother-in-law is the most amazing cook and has very generously allowed me to share this recipe with you. Even the humble home cook like me can make it. As the title suggests, it works best with apricots, which will come into season during summer. But if you can’t wait until then, it can also […]
Alisha is our new administration officer at The Organic Place but she is no stranger to an organic lifestyle. Very early on in life, Alisha cottoned on to the fact that her body reacted badly to pesticides. Ever since she could cook for herself, Alisha has purchased organic produce. She loves that her family reap […]
Hands up if your children love ice cream? Hands up if you get the guilts dishing it out for dessert multiple nights in a row? Guilty as charged here. My children will ask for ice cream every day of the week, whether it is thirty plus degrees or three degrees! Strange little weirdos. . .Their […]

As we finally exit the coldness of Winter, the truth can be seen – my coat isn’t the only layer I need to shed. I’ve been doing some serious eating over the colder months and indulging my sweet tooth probably more than necessary. A chocolate girl at heart, cacao is usually my go-to but I’m […]
Strawberries are back in season and it is such a popular fruit with kids as well as adults. It’s unfortunate that our Aussie farmers are suffering after recent strawberry tampering. We’ve all seen the recent media coverage of growers having to dump ridiculous amounts of strawberries. How about we support our farmers, still buy strawberries, and […]
When our lives get busy it is easy to fall back on ready made food. Luckily for me we have an amazing local cafe that makes delicious home-style pies and pastries which I often buy and freeze for crazy days. I recently bought the most delicious roast veg and egg pie there as a lunch option for myself and saw that they also sold them in a family size. It was simple to heat up in the oven at the end of a work day and serve with some steamed veg from The Organic Place.
It got me thinking I should try and replicate my own pie to freeze. Whilst there is a lot of cooking time, unless you’re using leftover roast veggies, it was very easy to make. This dish is great for Meat Free Monday or to be portioned out for lunches or even breakfast!
