{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,

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

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   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 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.

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,
