Overcome Negative Body Image

Overcome Negative Body Image

Overcome Negative Body-Image Here’s how just one of many clients did it! Sometimes in my coaching practice I need to get down into the pit with a client… really sit down in the mud with them and wade through the shit in their lives. It’s my job to hold steadfast as an anchor for them while they experience losing control or embracing their fear. Whatever the overwhelming emotion is, I’m always willing to go to the depths with them in order to help guide them back out of it. Not many traditional therapists allow themselves to do that, with the idea

Rustic Rosemary + Hazelnut Torte [Gluten, Grain & Sugar Free]

Rustic Rosemary + Hazelnut Torte [Gluten, Grain & Sugar Free]

Rustic Rosemary + Hazelnut Torte [Gluten, Grain & Sugar Free]  Real Food Friday!   I really like how food can look imperfect yet still absolutely divine, appetising and stimulating to our senses. I’d had it in my mind to make some sort of tart – or torte – that wasn’t visually perfect, but more rustic and outdoorsy with a farm or orchard feel. It may seem odd to pair rosemary with chocolate, but if you’ve already tried this combo recipe from my Healthy Chocolate Delights eBook you’ll know how curious and moreish it is! The style of this nutty crust combined with rosemary, adds to the laid

When Hunger Isn’t Real

When Hunger Isn't Real

When Hunger Isn’t Real…   We eat for all sorts of reasons: when we’re angry or sad, stressed or festive, starving or hormonal. Most people over-eat, and usually when they weren’t actually hungry in the first place. Eventually, distracted from the stress of daily life and worries, it becomes impossible to distinguish between hunger that is real and hunger that is fake. There are actually several different types of hunger, because our drive to eat comes from various sources that often don’t have anything to do with physical hunger – that real, true hunger that begins as a rumbling sensation

Chocolate JAFFA Cake with Choc Orange Ganache

CHOCOLATE JAFFA CAKE that’s healthy!   I’m pretty sure you all know how much I love to create whole food dishes to replace the store-bought and processed versions. This one does not disappoint – it’s bloody delicious! I decided to have a play with the Chocolate Chia Berry Cake from my Healthy Chocolate Delights eBook that’s always a winner. By doubling the mixture and changing a few key items to achieve the flavour I was after, it’s turned out to be a deliciously moist and rich cake with a beautiful aroma and flavour. The chocolate ganache icing is a delightfully

Benefits of Bentonite Clay

Benefits of Bentonite Clay

Bentonite Clay and it’s Benefits   Last year in my effort to combat environmental toxins harming my internal health, I discovered organic, edible bentonite clay. Clay has been used therapeutically for centuries, with the first use of medicinal clay recorded in 2500 B.C in Mesopotamia. Over the centuries the Greeks, Romans, Aztecs and Europeans have all hailed the health benefits of clay. During the First World War, German physicians used clay therapy to successfully treat troops for food poisoning, dysentery, and diarrhea and wound infection. Dr. Weston A. Price, author of Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, observed that several indigenous groups around the world used clay readily to outsmart disease

Raw Vanilla & Blueberry Cheesecake

Raw Vanilla & Blueberry Cheesecake

Raw Vanilla & Blueberry Cheesecake (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free)   Cheesecake growing up in the 70’s and 80’s was quite a regular indulgence in our house because my parents often hosted celebratory parties. The cheesecakes were ALWAYS homemade back then, but even still, as a teenager I just didn’t know that gobbling them up was a cause of my stomach upsets. Now that I do, I’ve been making and teaching a VERY healthy and satisfying way to enjoy the mouthfeel, texture and flavours of cheesecake but without the components that make my digestive tract upset and unhappy. This particular recipe is

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

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

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
