Hi Jules!

Was so excited to see you mention Paleo again on your blog! Congratulations on your little brewing bundle. We have a 15 month old and seriously… she rocks our world!

Anyways, we are interested in your ebook on Paleo recipes. Any chance you would sell it without buying the other books? We already have quite a few paleo books, but now I just want my sane life back: the one where I didn’t spend half of my day in the kitchen!

Let me know! Thanks!

Hi Jules,

Tried to send an email but it bounced….
Hi Jules,

I am impressed with your blog / website / shop/ all of it.

I wander around looking at stuff when I have time.

I guess you must have visited GaSP (GardenShedandPantry)

I have ordered the book pack for Kate this morning, after I saw the email (my first from you).

If your system allows for personalisation, could you write in

“And the Love is free”

To Kate, Hope this book inspires you, Jules

Thanks and Cheers, Lenny

Hey Jules,

After I discoverd your blog, I realized this is EXACTLY what I have been wanting for years! I love the idea of keeping things simple, healthy, and yet exploring the taste buds. I also love how you have alternatives listed below recipes. I hope to not only practice what you blog about, but to also pass down the recipes and words of wisdom to my 16 month old.

My goal is to participate in your upcoming cooking classes when I have a chance.

Thanks x 1000!

Thank you so much for writing such wonderful delicious cookbooks, my husband says we’re eating gourmet and can’t wait to see which new recipe I’ll try, best cookbooks ever


Dale Gray September 14, 2013 at 12:08 pm

Thank you so much for the free e-book. I really enjoyed looking through all the simple yet delicious looking recipes. Can’t wait to give them a try! Greetings from South Africa.

Hi i tried to comment on the correct page but it doesn’t seem to be allowing any more comments. I just wanted to thank you for your sourdough post – I baked my first loaf today, following your instructions although mine needed more flour. I wrote about it on my blog with a link back to yours. I try and cook/eat healthily too.


Gregory Noyes December 22, 2013 at 6:43 pm

Hi Jules,

Merry Xmas to you & your loved ones. I was just wondering if you recommend soaking quinoa prior to preparation. I’ve been told that it can be very bitter without soaking but I’ve also heard that modern humans don’t eat as many bitters as our ancestors did & I’m starting to re-experience adding them back to my diet. As a kid we all ate brussel sprouts & cabbage but these days I’m hard pressed to get my kids to eat it. Oh well, all the more for me! Unless your delicious recipes get them started. I’ll keep you posted. Have a happy new year.


jules January 7, 2014 at 5:48 pm

Good question Gregory!

I wash it well but don’t bother to soak. Haven’t noticed any bitter flavours.

And I HATED Brussels sprouts as a kid but now I adore them ;)



Susan O'Connor January 5, 2014 at 4:08 pm

Hi Jules

I wondered if you don’t put the egg white powder in the yoghurt and it is too runny, would it thicken by straining it (like I do when I make labneh)?


jules January 7, 2014 at 5:33 pm

It should help Susan… there’s only one way to find out for sure though


Scott Hastie February 24, 2014 at 8:38 am

Just tried the quick sausages with lentils they were yummy, I added chopped brussel sprouts for a little twist which worked out well. A big thank you to you and Lesh from mindful foodie, you have changed our eating habits and a change for better health, mind and getting back to the basics of good nutrition. Keep writing and I’ll keep following. Stay well, eat well.


jules March 1, 2014 at 6:52 am

Glad you liked them Scott!


Meg March 5, 2014 at 2:48 am

Finally! A food website that fits my needs precisely – no nonsense, no reams of ingredients, no fancy messing about with weird stuff I can’t find locally – fantastic! Looking forward to my eCookbook. Thank you Jules! ?
P.S. I’m 75 in a couple of weeks, still want adventures in food but no longer have the knees and hips willing to stand about in the kitchen for hours!


Meg March 5, 2014 at 2:51 am

That question mark in my previous comment was meant to be a heart – my usual signoff when I’m happy!

Diana August 5, 2014 at 7:42 am

Hi Jules,
Can I put all the ingredients in the vitamix and keep blending till it’s hot, or does it need to have that time in the frypan to bring out extra flavour first?
Thanks and have a great day!
Diana Sydney


phoebe goldup November 7, 2014 at 5:26 am

Hi Jules, I was just wondering if you have any tips for getting exotic ingredients and tastes past cautious little mouths?

Really enjoying the meal plans at the moment but am considering unsubscribing as there are so many intolerances amongst us we cant eat egg or dairy.

But it has been absolutely wonderful for the weeks I’ve had it.



Ash November 27, 2014 at 1:34 pm

Hi Jules,
I just want to say a big ‘Thank You’. I recently had a dinner party and decided to take your advice of keeping it simple and plan the menu and it worked. I used a few of your recipes (burnt carrot salad and little bailey’s cheesecakes), although I altered both slightly to what I had on hand, they both turned out fantastic and received a number of comments on how tasty they were. But the best thing was, I was able to be with my guests for most of the night and not stuck in the kitchen all flustered. So thank you, I’m converted to the ‘keep it simple’ approach :).
Cheers, Ash


jules December 2, 2014 at 10:24 am

Wonderful Ash!
So glad to hear I’ve got you converted… simplicity is totally the way forward :)


Kimberly December 13, 2014 at 3:56 am

I just discovered your website this am(looking for a frittata recipe) & spent the morning checking all subjects out—-I am so impressed with your info/education re: food & your recipes/hints for easy but tasty easy cooking.
I am trying to eat & cook healthy food AND lose weight.
I will be checking out your website regularly & plan to try some recipes soon.
Thanks for the
Good Food News !


jules January 27, 2015 at 9:03 am

Welcome Veda!

Look forward to hearing which recipe you try first!



Barb Hassed February 15, 2015 at 1:27 pm

Hi Jules,
I just read your RAW BROCCOLI SALAD recipe and if I were to make this to take to work would you suggest I take the avocado and cut it up at work and toss into the remaining ingredients?

OR have the DRESSING ingredients separate in a bowl and add remaining ingredients when it’s meal time?

By the way, I love your website all these meals so easy to prepare. Wonderful that not HOURS are to be spent in Kitchen after all day on feet at work but still eating healthily…


jules February 17, 2015 at 8:02 am

Great question Barb!
This salad is one of those rare ones that actually improves with a bit of extra time marinating in the dressing so I’d just take it to work already dressed. It’s up to you with the avocado. The dressing will prevent most of the browning so it’s fine to add in advance but it will be fresher if you want to add it just before serving. It’s up to you
So glad you’re enjoying Stonesoup! xx


margaret March 18, 2015 at 4:19 am

In my freezer I always keep various nutmeats and individually portioned bacon in baggies since these items are great to have when you need them. Also have a bag of chopped green pepper in there. Saves buying whole peppers when you just need a little. Butter sticks also are frozen ’til 1 by 1 they get used. As you may have guessed, I live alone.


jules March 25, 2015 at 8:12 am

Good for you Margaret!


Clementine April 11, 2015 at 6:12 pm

Hey Jules!
Fantastic recipes – I’m really keen to try the Live Below the Line ones for $2 a day (I’m taking the challenge too!)
Just a quick note that the Australian campaign is run by Oaktree, rather than the Global Poverty Project, and the website is for all of your Asutralian readers. It’s super easy to sign up and share tips and posts there as well if you’re keen!


jules April 14, 2015 at 10:15 am

Thx Clementine! I’ve done love below the line in the past… It’s a great cause :)


Jessica May 4, 2015 at 7:04 am

Hi Jules
I have been a fan of your blog for a long while now. I am Australian but for the last few years I have been living in the Pacific (Kiribati and now Solomon Islands). I thought you might like to know how amazing and adaptable your recipes are for living in developing countries where quality food is limited and shortages of the basics occur often. Everyone (locals and foreigners alike) loves it when I cook for them because I manage to make interesting and tasty things with limited ingredients.
Thanks so much for your hard work on the blog, I couldn’t do without it!
xxx J


jules May 5, 2015 at 12:47 pm

Oh thank you so much Jessica! Really appreciate you letting me know Jx
