About Thomas

I write because I can type. I can type because I have a keyboard.

I am a new age Australian resident that is experiencing this new continent with a fresh set of eyes. 

I write on a wide range of topics. Well, I write on food. There you have it, I write on a wide range of food as well. 


A delicious slice created from milk that tastes like the regular stuff, but is so much healthier.

Camel milk -- used for centuries by nomadic people of the Middle East -- is the nutritionally closest to human mother’s milk, containing 10 times more iron and three times more vitamin C than cow’s milk, while also being lower in cholesterol.

Camel milk contains powerful immune-system components that are believed to benefit disorders including diabetes and autism.

Low-fat camel milk contains healthy vitamins and minerals, it is also is a rich source of insulin. According to researchers, camel milk contains 52 units of insulin per litre, which is more than 60 percent of the average necessary external insulin administration for type 1 diabetics.

The milk is so similar to cow’s milk that you wouldn’t notice the difference if I handed you a glass without being told.

And with a now-thriving Australian camel milk industry tapping into a market seeking alternatives to cow milk and its by-products, I was keen to see if people would notice the difference.

A dessert sounded like a good option, so I substituted cow’s milk with camel milk in this vanilla slice.

The result was divine.
