Dieting Danger – Food Can’t Fix Feelings

Dieting Danger - Food Can't Fix Feelings

DIETING DANGER – Food Can’t Fix Feelings   Have you ever been on a diet? If you’re here at MindBodyFood, you most probably have! In fact, there’s bound to be many of you who have never got OFF the diet wagon because you’re still struggling to feel comfortable in your body (instead of ashamed). Have you recently committed yourself to a ‘new’ diet for the New Year? We so often fall into the trap of believing that if we can control our food and change the way we look, we just might be able to control how we feel. NEWS FLASH –

Healthy Chocolate Panforte Recipe

Healthy Chocolate Panforte Recipe

Healthy Chocolate Panforte Recipe Perfect for Christmas!   Panforte is traditionally an Italian cake containing fruit and nuts. So more or less, it’s kind of like a fruitcake – dense, moist, fruity. It originated in the Tuscan city of Siena somewhere around the thirteenth century. Here I’ve made a healthy version that doesn’t miss out on any of the traditional flavours, certainly has the dense quality but with a lighter feel in the tummy. My healthy christmas panforte recipe is also gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free. It’s the perfect healthy recipe for christmas! There’s minimal liquid sweetener

Don’t Diet this Christmas, Do This Instead

Don't Diet this Christmas, Do This Instead

Instead of Dieting, Bingeing or Restricting this Christmas Try a New Approach… It’s that time of year again when many of us freak out at the abundant supply of festive food that is often on our “forbidden/bad/diet says no” list. Because I have no intention of losing my mind dieting for the next two weeks just so I can let loose on Christmas Day, my lead up is mostly calm, relaxed and peaceful. (I say mostly because I can’t control everything.. and it relieves a lot of unnecessary pressure when you realise that.) Your Christmas can be calm, relaxed and peaceful

5 Limiting Beliefs Holding Your Mind Hostage

5 Limiting Beliefs Holding Your Mind Hostage

5 Limiting Beliefs Holding Your Mind Hostage   When I started MindBodyFood my main driver was to make a difference in the lives of women who struggled with liking themselves, accepting their bodies and were using food as a means of control, punishment or comfort in managing stressful thoughts and emotions. Think BINGE EATING, EMOTIONAL EATING, STRESS EATING. What I’ve realised over the years is that nearly EVERYONE in their lifetime struggles with five core underlying and limiting beliefs that they’re either: Not good enough Not smart enough Not worthy enough Don’t deserve it Can’t do it UNDERNEATH their body and

Bloating, Pain and Parasites – Become your own best health advocate

Bloating, Pain and Parasites - Become your own best health advocate

Bloating, Pain, Hospitals and Parasites Become Your Own Best Health Advocate If you follow me on my Facebook page you’ll know that last Wednesday I was woken in the early hours with EXCRUCIATING lower right, abdominal pain followed by vomiting bile. I was taken to hospital and drugged up on morphine, asked to pee in a jar, fill up with fluid for a couple of ultrasounds, then drink a litre of dye and be injected with contrast for a CT scan. The suspects – kidneys, ovaries and appendix – were all clear, but not before they offered to call a surgeon to cut me

Almond Toffee Chocolate Bark Recipe

Almond Toffee Chocolate Bark Recipe

Almond Toffee Chocolate Bark Recipe   This clean eating recipe needs little introduction. I love almonds, I love raw honey and I love dark chocolate. Why not put them all together?! So what it’s made with natural raw honey, and I boil it first. It’s still a natural food that is made with love. It’s a super easy recipe that’s simple, yet certainly not plain! The children loved it so I started teaching them how to make this simple toffee and how it reminded me of toffee apples – of which the children have never tried. So you never know, we may make them

Best Ever Deluxe Cashew Brownie Recipe

Best Ever Deluxe Cashew Brownie Recipe

Best Ever Brownie! This my friends, was a conscious effort in creating a decadent, soft and absolutely melt in your mouth, soft and gooey brownie to serve with cream and loved ones. Cooking with real whole foods has been a wonderful way for me to indulge when I feel like it and without the guilt. It’s also been a wonderful introduction for the children to learn how much better making and eating real whole foods can be over the packaged, processed and white sugar-laden options. They love this brownie and they know when they’ve had enough, without feeling deprived or feeding a sugar

Apple Chia Seed Chocolate Crumble

Apple Chia Seed Chocolate Crumble

APPLE CHIA SEED CHOCOLATE CRUMBLE What to do with apples when you’ve got plenty? Make apple pie or crumble of course! We had two full bags of apples that we picked fresh from the orchard on our day trip to Stanthorpe over the easter long weekend. What else would I do with them but create something absolutely, delightfully scrumptious with them, and make sure that the recipe is made with healthy whole food and nutrient dense ingredients. It’s also dairy free, gluten free and naturally sweetened with medjool dates and a touch of raw honey. Aside from the coconut milk, which

Are Food Rules Ruining Your Social Life

Are Food Rules Ruining Your Social Life

How to Let Go of Food Rules How many times a day do you tell yourself, “I can’t have that”? And what happens when you tell yourself you can’t have something?….. It’s like talking to a child: you either focus on it and want it more, question and barter with yourself until you’re worn out and give in, or just eat it in an act of defiance anyway. If dieting has become a way of life for you then it’s highly probable all those guidelines and restrictions have left some lingering do’s and don’ts that are tangled up in your negative self-talk and

5 Ways to Start the Year Without Dieting

5 Ways to Start the Year Without Dieting

Well dear readers, it’s a brand new year. And research shows that January is usually accompanied by resolutions to lose weight, change employment or finally sort out your finances. Which category are you focused on? Because of the area I specialize in, many people who employ my coaching and therapy services in the new year are usually wanting to lose weight, be happy, and find more peace and inner calm. The biggest lesson I teach them is that they won’t find what they’re looking for by going on a new diet. What your body desperately wants and needs is homeostasis,

Why You Need to Love Yourself + Free PDF Printable

Do You Love Yourself? FREE Self-Love Reminders Printable PDF below!   I used to loathe myself. Love was a word that didn’t compute. I could never truly accept love because I didn’t know how to feel it for myself. As babies we are born happy, loveable and wanting to love. But what happens when we experience feelings of neglect, criticism or abandonment in our childhood…. that we feel the hurt so strongly and intensely as children we appoint ourselves to blame and internalise our pain? As we grow, a part of us begins to believe we are unworthy of love…. That inner child who felt unsafe and

Spelt Coffee & Pecan Cake Recipe

Spelt Coffee & Pecan Cake Recipe

Coffee & Pecan Cake Recipe Spelt is an ancient grain widely recognized for its many health benefits. Triticum spelta, the scientific name for spelt,  is a hardier and more nutritious cousin to modern wheat (Triticum aestivum). Some taxonomists classify spelt as a parent of wheat. Spelt is classed in the wheat family, even though there are significant differences between common wheat and spelt, including that the molecular structure of the protein in spelt is more brittle and soluble, allowing it to be assimilated more easily. It’s high in fibre and tastes great! Who said eating clean and healthy for the whole family,

Dark Citrus and Roast Almond Chocolate!

Dark Citrus and Roast Almond Chocolate!

Dark Citrus and Roast Almond Chocolate Oh I do love creating new textures, aromas and flavours in my raw chocolate! This one rivals one of my favourite combo’s from a Lindt bar – orange and almond. I really love peppermint and orange with dark chocolate. There’s just something delicious about the blending of these two sweet and fruity flavours with the intense richness and bitterness of the cacao bean. Adding a bit of crunch with roasted almonds simply completes the deliciousness! Mine beats Lindt hands down!! 🙂 #‎rawchocolatelove  Enjoy!
