{Podcast} How Dieting Works Against Your Body & What You Can Do to Work With it

How Dieting Works Against Your Body and What You Can Do to Work With it   Have you been doing EVERYTHING “right” but your body doesn’t seem like it’s doing what you want? Don’t lose faith in it, learn to trust it again so your body can learn to trust YOU again! It’s an interesting concept that most people don’t even consider – that your body might lose trust with you after all your efforts to make it weigh less and feel healthier. The thing is most of these efforts are done without consulting the body. Instead of turning inward,

Design Your Ideal Morning to Create Your Ideal Life

Design Your Ideal Morning to Create Your Ideal Life

Design Your Ideal Morning, Create Your Ideal Life   Many motivation masters and psychologist agree that how you start your morning will set you up for your day ahead. With all the recent focus on starting a fresh year, I think it’s more important to focus on one day at a time, keeping your overall goals in mind, but giving your power and attention to the current moment and asking yourself, What one thing can I think about/do differently today? Putting a little thought into how you’d ideally like to be starting your day, will help you align the focus, energy

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).

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

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

How to Tap into the Power of I AM

How to Tap into the Power of I AM

THE POWER OF I AM How to tap into the infinite power of these two simple words I love the teachings of Louise Hay and the late Dr Wayne Dyer, who often talked about the significance of the words I AM and how we use them. When I’m teaching my clients or students about the subconscious mind and conditioned thinking, I emphasise the importance of how much power these two little words can have over our entire wellbeing.  Read the next two lines and take note of how each makes you feel… I am a good person who is kind, thoughtful and caring

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

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 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

What’s Holding You Back?

What's Holding You Back?

  Have you ever shown up and did something that you weren’t initially sure about – do I know enough, can I pull this off, will I be able to deliver – but then totally surprised yourself by how much fun you had, and how comfortably you took to it when you did? That’s how I feel now after finally stepping up to the plate this year and teaching the yoga portion of the first half of my yoga and meditation classes. I love teaching meditation – I love teaching, connecting and engaging with people in general. But I hadn’t realised just how

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,

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,
