Make Sure You’ve Packed All Our Favourite Camping Essentials This Summer!

Make Sure You’ve Packed All Our Favourite Camping Essentials This Summer!

Kate Parker | December 30, 2018

 

Summer is the time to hit the road and head camping with the family, but you don’t need to let your healthy whole foods eating slide while you’re on the road. All it takes is a little organization & preparation to ensure your family is fuelling up well!

 

Snack Time

No summer camping trip is complete without some quality snacks. We love our snacks here at TWC, but we always want to make sure we’re fuelling our bodies instead of just filling them.

Dried FruitsWalnut Stuffed Dates

Satisfy your sweet tooth with a selection of our dried fruits. From our classic Aussie sultanas and apricots to sugar-free cranberries, incaberries, mango cheeks, figs, Medjool dates and dried bananas. Not only are these all awesome to have in your pantry (and on your camping trips) for snacking, but they also are fantastic for adding flavour to easy breakfasts like porridge and muesli, tossing together with some nuts and seeds for a trail mix or whizzing up into some bliss balls before you hit the road.

Does all that sound like a lot of effort? Grab and go with some of these clean-eating vegan protein bars, made with all natural ingredients, a delicious choc-mint flavour, and you KNOW they pass our rigorous 4-step ingredient check! Want some more flavours? We’ve got vegetarian coconut or chocolate as well!

 

Something Savoury

Your Crackersbrown rice bites

We don’t all crave sweet & fruity treats. So something savoury to snack on is always a plus when camping. It’s hard to resist the crunch of treats like rice cakes and rice crackers. But try to resist munching on them on their own. Add homemade dips like hummus, pesto or baba ganouj or some simple avocado, tahini and tomato slices to add protein and healthy fats to your snack, making it a filling, nutrient-dense treat!

Our brown rice cakes are a great canvas to create a mid-morning snack on. Go with original salted flavour, or salt-free, inject a little extra flavour with tamari, or pump up the protein with quinoa. 

For in the evening when the washing up has been finished whip out a pack of brown rice crackers to have with your favourite dip! Choose between brown rice crackers with chia for an extra protein & fibre boost or our favourite Japanese flavours in green crackers with green tea and seaweed.

Want an easy snackable bite when there’s no dips or rice cake toppers in sight? Try our new rice bites! These tasty snacks from Ceres Organics come in three great flavours including sea-salt, sour cream & chives & coconut.

 

Something NuttyAlmonds

Nuts are the ultimate snack food for a burst of energy and protein on a busy day on the campsite! Add some tamari almondsroasted almonds, mixed raw nuts or paleo mix to your next order for a quick and easy bite, or select all your favourites from our choice of raw almondscashews, pecans, and walnuts. 

Want something nutty that’s not a nut at all? Chewy tiger nuts actually a tuber, and a fantastic prebiotic snack!

 

Get Poppin’!

Camp Fire PopcornNothing is better than freshly popped popcorn for some campfire fun! We love popping our kernels in coconut oil to impart delicious coconut richness and topping with nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavour!

 

Canned Goodies

Canned foods are your friend when camping. They can survive getting banged around and don’t require refrigeration.

We love keeping tomato passata on hand to make a quick and easy campfire pasta that the kids will love, mixed beans to toss with fresh veggies like tomato and avocado for a simple and filling lunch and coconut milk & cream to liven up a campfire curry, or stir through chia seeds to make an easy chia pudding.

 

Pack it All UpCheeki Double Stacker Lunch Box

Ever since we’ve brought in the amazing Cheeki range of zero-waste products we’ve been LOVING how versatile they are! Their coffee mugs are perfect for ensuring your campsite cuppa doesn’t get spilt, the whole family can manage their hydration with their fantastic drink bottles ranging in size from 1 Litre, 750mL & 500mL and their fantastic stainless steel boxes are perfect for packing up your trail mixes, oats, nuts and seeds and dried fruits to hit the road with – these come in a great range of sizes with hungry max, the double stack and a 500mL everyday lunchbox.

A Very Vegan Christmas Menu!

A Very Vegan Christmas Menu!

Kate Parker | December 19, 2018

 

 

Christmas ImagePlant-based eating is becoming more and more popular, whether on a part-time basis or a full-time commitment, and there’s no reason to stop in the Christmas season! There are so many festive, delicious Christmas creations that are healthy and vegan that you can add to your Christmas menu to make your plant-based Christmas a breeze. I’ve come up with some top tips for an awesome vegan Christmas and a menu loaded with freshness and indulgence that your guests are sure to love!

My top tips for a great vegan Christmas

 

1. Visit your local farmers market or independent grocer to grab all your favourite seasonal produce. Having all your favourites on hand will get you excited to get you creating in the kitchen.

2. Pick veggies and fruit that are fresh and vibrant in colour! Particularly look for reds and greens in spring beets, red capsicums, mixed heritage tomatoes, zucchinis, kiwis, dragonfruit and more!

3. Dress your salads with style. Simple oil and vinegar is good for everyday greens, but make sure your Christmas salads sing! Use fresh citrus and herbs for winning dressings.

4. You’d be nuts not include nuts. Your guests will thank you for creating dishes that are loaded with the textures and flavours that nuts can provide. We love soaking cashews and almonds for decadent cheeses and desserts.

5. Make texture and flavour combos a focus in every dish! Do you have a combination of silky, crunchy, creamy, crisp? Find ways to balance sweet with salty, sour and bitter too!

6. Make sure every dish is finished with finesse. Keep fresh herbs on hand to scatter, pomegranate seeds, fruit slices, toasted seeds and crushed nuts will all make your garnishes divine.

7. Be generous! Everyone loves eating leftovers on boxing day, so fill up those platters and make the day after Christmas an easy one to manage.

 

My Christmas Menu Ideas

Snacks

People want to snack right away when they arrive, so make sure there are ample bowls of nuts, fresh veggies chopped up for crudite (think carrots, radish, capsicum, cucumber), and homemade crackers. Create some dips like beetroot dip, labneh dip, and pomegranate guacamole.

Starters and Sides

Lots of colourful side dishes make the table look fantastic. We love everything stuffed, shredded, baked and piled high on the starters menu.

Mains

Create a great centerpiece like a delicious nut loaf or whole roasted head of cauliflower to stun! Surround it with fresh sides.

Dessert

Make the most of Aussie summer fruits! Create a raw cheesecake or tarts, layer your favourite summer fruits, or even go all out and attempt a watermelon cake with coconut cream frosting.

And that’s a wrap! After 10 years of veganism I’m still surprised by the “but WHAT DO YOU EAT?” question, and this has always been amplified by Christmas where all the traditional Aussie grub is about animal products.
I’m always so excited to share the HUGE range of possibilities when we extend our imaginations to highlighting plant foods, with 30,000+ edible plants in the world the possibilities are endless on special occasions!

 

 

 

Deck Your Table with This Strawberry Rocket Avocado Salad with Candied Pecans for Christmas

Deck Your Table with This Strawberry Rocket Avocado Salad with Candied Pecans for Christmas

Kate Parker | December 11, 2018

 

Serve up this fresh and zingy salad full of special elements with your Christmas lunch!

Prep as much of it as you can ahead of time by making the caramelized pecans up to a week ahead and storing in an airtight jar in the pantry and the salad dressing up to 24hrs ahead of serving. Rinse greens and slice up strawberries and avocado just before serving, then toss all ingredients together with dressing, setting aside pecans to top with so they stay crispy.

 

IngredientsStrawberry Avocado Pecan Rocket Salad Christmas Vegan

1 bag of baby rocket, washed and drained
1 punnet of strawberries, sliced
1 avocado, sliced
1 cup pecans
2 tbsp rice malt syrup
Pinch of salt

Dressing
Juice of 1 lime
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper

 

Method

 

1. Heat a wide based fry pan on low heat and add rice malt syrup. When it becomes runny add pecans and stir to coat and add a good pinch of quality salt.

2. Caramelize over low heat for 10-15 minutes, or until you notice the syrup caramelizing to form toffee strands forming and all the nuts coming together into one large mass.

3. Turn off the heat and press with a spoon to flatten out and separate as much as possible.

4. Put aside to cool completely, separate as needed once the toffee has set.

5. While nuts are caramelizing make the dressing by adding all ingredients to a small jar and shaking to emulsify & pop in the fridge.

6. Slice avocado and strawberries and toss with rocket and dressing.

7. Place into a salad dish and top with pecans.
