Just because. I sometimes work at a place where people often snack on their break. I use this as an opportunity to experiment with recipes and feed the masses at the same time. I now consciously reduce sugar in all my recipes and make sure that at least 80% of the flour used is whole grain. This way people are able to snack sensibly. Pictured above are a batch of ANZAC biscuits. I made them using whole grain flour and only 3 Tablespoons of sugar for the whole batch!

What are Random Acts of Edible Kindness?

We all have to eat and we all want to feel connected. Sharing food with someone to cheer them up, offer encouragement/congratulations or assist with recovery is a way to nurture and nourish our fellow human beings.

I love to bake and often share my wares with others. Sometimes it’s to test market a recipe but mostly it’s simply to express my nurturing side through food. After all, nothing says I love you like carbs.

How to Participate
Once a month, deliver food to an unsuspecting family member, friend or acquaintance. Perhaps choose a complete stranger or homeless person as the recipient. Write a short post on what you made and why you chose them. Tag your post with “random acts of edible kindness” and link to this page at Weal Food.


Posting is due the last calendar day of the month. Next posting date: January 31, 2016.
Certain posts will be selected every month and featured on this page.

*Food must be made by you.
*Recipes should be vegetarian or vegan.
*Recipient should not be made aware of the surprise. Birthdays and other special occasions excluded. The idea is spontaneity.

Include the recipe and photo of recipient holding food (with their permission of course).
