Spiced Fruit Loaf

Spiced Fruit Loaf

Spiced Fruit Loaf As winter draws near, so does my desire for warm and spicy comfort foods like soups, casseroles and vegetables. Oh, and hot chocolate… 🙂 I don’t eat much bread although I do love a good traditional sourdough, toasted and topped with eggs, spinach, bacon and home made sauerkraut! During winter I often want something a little more filling that has a lot of flavour and will perfectly compliment a cup of herbal tea on a cold afternoon. I started dreaming of fruit toast, which the children often ask for around this time of year. But it doesn’t

Sweet Potato Boats [Recipe]

Sweet Potato Boats [Recipe]

Sweet Potato Boats Full of flavour!! I’ve been inspired by the cooler weather and the warm colours and flavours of winter. Last week we were outside at the fire pit eating these delicious, flavoursome Thai Sweet Potato Boats after I had a burst of creativity in the kitchen, trying out some different earthy spices with my love of sweet potatoes! These “boats” are surprisingly filling and we were done after eating two. They are so YUM! The Benefits of Sweet Potato Sweet potatoes provide a rich concentration of nutrients, which make them an ideal addition to your meals throughout the year. The

Berry Delicious Health Bars [Recipe]

Berry Delicious Health Bars [Recipe]

Berry Delicious Health Bars A definite healthier version than the packaged “health” bars at the store, these healthy fruit and nut bars contain a good source of sustained energy, healthy fats, protein and fibre. They’re fun to make and easy to mix together. A great little recipe to get the kids in the kitchen they are perfect for a morning or afternoon snack – maybe even as a breakfast bar (although I don’t recommend when there are so many other wonderful and more rounded meals for breakfast). Have fun with the mixture I’ve created below but don’t be afraid to experiment and play

Do you really have a healthy diet?

Do you really have a healthy diet?

How healthy is your diet? Guest post by Daniel Biernoff (Nourished Health Through Nutrition)   As a naturopath with twenty years of clinical experience , I often have people tell me that they stick to a “healthy diet”- then proceed to run off a list of debilitating health problems. The reality is that the average “healthy” Australian diet which is heavy on dairy, meat and processed foods, directly contributes to our disturbing health statistics where heart disease, dementia, obesity, diabetes and cancers are becoming increasingly common. So what’s not adding up? We are told by all sorts of people in

5 Reasons Why Your Diet Isn’t Working

5 Reasons Why Your Diet Isn’t Working

5 Reasons Why Your Diet Isn’t Working This week I was awarded a place in Diet-to-Go’s Top 100 Healthy Lifestyle Bloggers list for 2015!  Check the list (including me!) out here: http://diettogo.com/blog/top-100-diet-blogs I’m really honoured to be in such esteemed company when it comes to talking about dieting and self-care, because it increasingly disheartens me to see so many women (and men) of all ages continue to make misguided attempts to lose weight – effectively working against their bodies and taking on the shame of their “failure” when they put all the weight back on. I spent 18 years hating my body and blaming my weight. I

Orange, Maca & Pecan Raw Milk Chocolate Bark [Recipe]

Orange, Maca & Pecan Raw Milk Chocolate Bark [Recipe]

Orange, Maca & Pecan Milk Chocolate Raw and Healthy ! So you all know by now (unless you’re new to MindBodyFood) that I love making my own raw and healthy chocolate with nutrient dense, organic raw cacao powder and butter (that’s sourced ethically and sustainably). Where once I was addicted to sugar and chocolate, I have established a much healthier relationship with food and can enjoy chocolate whenever I feel like it, without the worry or guilt. The best part is that my sugar cravings are gone along with my food addiction. I don’t obsess and worry over food any

Chocolate You Can Indulge In

Chocolate You Can Indulge In

Indulge in Chocolate – Yes You Can! Eating chocolate for me used to be a guilty pleasure. I was addicted to the fake euphoria I experienced with every massive sugar shot to my brain. It triggered my reward centre to release a hormone called Dopamine – I felt fine when I was eating chocolate. I even felt pretty fine after I ate chocolate. But about thirty minutes later I felt low, lethargic, irritable and disgusted – with myself and my lack of willpower; with my body and the excess fat I was carrying – the same fat I’d just fed a dose of creamy, sickly sweet chocolate to.

Chocolate Choc Chip Cookie [recipe]

Chocolate Choc Chip Cookie [recipe]

Chocolate Choc Chip Cookie Make my famous Chocolate Chip Cookies – a variation of my Grandmother’s Ginger Shar biscuits and my Macadamia Chocolate Brownies. The perfect recipe to get the kids involved if you’re looking for a fun activity that results in food! It’s not gluten free, but more easily digestible by using spelt flour, however it is refined sugar free. These are a huge scrumptious hit in our house and usually the kids stop at two because they’re so filling and satisfying! This recipe is based on the Macadamia Chocolate Brownie recipe that’s in my raw and healthy chocolate eBook, “Easy Chocolate

Do You Need to Slow Down?

Do You Need to Slow Down?

The Low Down on Slowing Down For months now I’ve been caught up in the gotta do-more, be-more, give-more cycle, and I’ve created my own well of resentment in not giving enough to myself. I bet you can relate. Over Christmas I felt suffocated. I just wanted a breather, a break, a moment to myself to process a mountain of emotions – away from running my business, planning events, and being switched on for others all the time. Time away from feeling like I had to post on social media, write blogs, articles and newsletters at certain times and days –

Tasty Cashew “Nut” Cheese [Recipe]

Tasty Cashew "Nut" Cheese [Recipe]

Tasty (Nut) Cheese that’s Dairy Free! You’ve got to hand it to the Cashew Nuts (that are actually the seeds and grow on the outside of the fruit!). Cashews have a great mineral source and contain 31% of the daily recommended value for copper, along with 23% for manganese, 20% for magnesium and 17% for phosphorus. Add to that 12% of the daily recommended value for vitamin K and you’re looking at a versatile and healthy nut to add to your whole food pantry. They’re also the perfect creamy nut with a subtle sweet taste. Because they aren’t overpowering you can dress them up however

Super Seed & Herb Crackers [Recipe]

Super Seed & Herb Crackers Finally! I’ve cracked the code on home made crackers that don’t require a dehydrator! I’ve made so many seed and gluten free, grain free loaves of bread now, that I’ve wanted to finally break our Jatsz cracker habit by creating some kind of delicious and super healthy home made version of crackers that will make a decent amount to last for a while before having to make them again. I like the idea of all the things I can create with a dehydrator, but we don’t have one and I’m not ready to find extra

Cravings, Needs and Desires [VLog]

Cravings, Needs and Desires [VLog]

What are you really hungry for? Cravings, needs and desires… We all have them, but how often are we actually attending to our cravings, needs and desires? When we don’t feel fulfilled in our lives, these three areas will be left hungry for whatever it is that will fulfil, satisfy and satiate us on a deeper level. Yet, because we aren’t always aware of what we truly crave, need and desire in all areas of our lives, it’s far easier to reach for pleasure inducing foods that give us a short-term feeling of being happy and having what we want.

Beat the Food Designers at their Fat, Sugar, Salt Game

Beat the Food Designers at their Fat, Sugar, Salt Game

Food by Design A food designer’s job description: create the perfect ratio of fat, sugar and salt in a food product to create opiates in the brain and have consumers craving more! Big corporate food organisations rely on these food designers to create great wealth in their companies at an even greater cost to public health. People already restricting themselves on one diet or another especially find these cravings overwhelming. They will often berate themselves and feel like failures, believing they have no willpower or motivation, all because the food they’re eating is designed in such a way to make
