How Memories Can Affect Your Digestion

How Memories Can Affect Your Digestion

How Memories Can Affect Your Digestion   Is stress impacting your digestion? Find out how eating either in a stressed or relaxed state affects your ability to digest your food properly in this brief introduction that will make total sense in illuminating your eating behaviours! In this powerful 6 minute video, I share a brief explanation of why we get stressed and relive past emotions when eating. It’s got a lot to do with our nervous system, how our brain processes information, and the individual meaning we attach to past experiences. These short 6 minutes could change your life! (I hope so)   Viki Thondley

{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,

{Podcast} The Cost of Staying Stuck

The Cost of Staying Stuck   If you’ve ever tried to reach out for help but at the last minute retreated back into the safety and comfort of what you know – even though it might be painful or uncomfortable – have you ever thought about how much it costs you to stay there? The nature of human behaviour is that we want change, but often are unwilling to do the changing! When I receive an enquiry from someone, they usually send it at a time when they can’t take it anymore. When the pain is too intense, when the discomfort

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

3 Keys to Cultivate Self-Love {Podcast}

3 Keys to Cultivate Self-Love PODCAST EPISODE   We all need a little help in how to cultivate self-love, gratitude and a positive mindset. So earlier this week I shared an inspiring talk with Nicole Coggiola, Health & Lifestyle Coach over at the Nourished Goddess.

This one dives a little deeper into the importance of the mind and gratitude when making healthy lifestyle changes. Aspects that can’t be ignored when creating inner transformation for outer change. It’s all about being a

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, 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 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

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
