Adrian Tiller and daughter Amy
Sherwood Rd Organic Meats (Sherwood) and Morley St Organic Meats (Toowong) are about as ‘paddock to plate’ as it gets! Farmer Adrian Tiller produces organic beef, lamb and goat at Roma and daughter Amy sells it in their stores. Other wonderful farmers supply what they don’t produce themselves: Bendele Farm certified organic/free-range poultry and Dawson Valley “humane-choice” free-range pork. They specialise in paleo and other food nutrition networks eg GAPS and therefore stock a huge array of bones, grain-free and “CRAP-FREE” meats. They smoke their own nitrate-free, free-range hams and bacons. But best of all they are there to help and happy to chat at any time.

Marty Kendall: Optimising nutrition for performance, weight loss and diabetes
Everyone agrees that nutrient dense whole foods are optimal for health, but not everyone agrees on what they are. Identifying foods that are highest in the nutrients that are harder to obtain enables us to avoid malnutrition with the least amount of energy. People who are looking to lose weight can focus on low energy density foods that increase satiety while maximizing nutrient density. People who are insulin resistant benefit from lower insulin load foods that lead to normal blood glucose levels.

Marty is married to a type 1 diabetic and has a family history of type 2 diabetes himself. Building on this personal motivation, he has combined the concepts of nutrient density, the food insulin index and energy density to identify optimal foods for different goals, such as athletic performance, weight loss, diabetes and therapeutic ketosis.

•Ancient wisdom from Traditional Chinese Medicine
