Mindful Eating 101

Mindful Eating 101

Mindful Eating Tips Having lived through 18 years of Bulimia Nervosa, I’m certainly no stranger to the “stuff it in before you realise how much you’re eating” habit. I wouldn’t even taste my food for fear of being too slow that someone might actually see me eating! We don’t just eat fast and mindless because of food or body issues, there are so many people in this fast paced world who are simply running on empty. They are “go, go, go” people with so much to do, but never enough time to do it in. This couldn’t be more true

Gut Health – Feed Your Good Bacteria

Gut Health - Feed Your Good Bacteria

Feeding Your Bacteria Is the food we’re eating on a regular basis the reason why we get sick? If we change our food, could we change the state of our health? Can we also affect our moods by making changes to our diet? I firmly believe we can. The collective human microbe colony weighs about 1 and a-half kilos – as much as our brains. Bacterial cells outnumber our human cells by 10 to 1 and they live predominantly inside our gut. Our gut bacteria, also known as the Microbiome (pronounced micro-bi-ome) lives off of the food we eat. The problem is that certain

60+ Healthy Chocolate Delights Recipes – My NEW eBOOK!

60+ Healthy Chocolate Delights Recipes - My NEW eBOOK!

MY BRAND NEW EBOOK! Do you love chocolate, but always have this guilty feeling associated with it? Guilty pleasure. Guilty addiction. Equals shame. Eating chocolate for me used to be a guilty pleasure. I was addicted to the false pleasure I experienced due to the massive sugar high in 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 damn fine after I ate chocolate…. But then after a little while, I felt low, lethargic, irritable…. and disgusted – with myself and my lack of willpower; with my body and the excess

Macadamia Chocolate Brownie [Recipe]

Macadamia Chocolate Brownie [Recipe]

Chocolate Brownies, YUM! Oh come on, who doesn’t love a decadent chocolate brownie?! Raw or baked, brownies are actually quite versatile in the ways you can put them together. This recipe is actually created from a biscuit recipe that my Grandmother (who’s now 98) used to make for us when we were kids. She made them as a ginger cookie – sharp, crunchy and buttery. I’ve made them many times as gingerbread men with the children, and as a rich chocolate chip cookie dough. I’ve created several raw brownie recipes that I teach in my Raw and Healthy Chocolate Workshop and that we

Chicken Meatballs [Recipe]

Paleo Chicken Meatballs Who doesn’t love a tasty meatball that’s healthy, delicious and super easy to make?! Mr 13 just loves all things Italian and pasta when it comes to food. My digestive system however, can only take so much. So I like to mix things up a little and give that authentic look and flavour of a hearty Italian offering, but without compromising my own digestive health. Meatballs are a great way to play with different ingredient ideas and create something extra special. You can use any type of meat for these, however I do like to use organic chicken.

Have you Quit Sugar?

Have you Quit Sugar?

Sugar, Sugar The ‘I Quit Sugar’ movement is in full swing: Cut the sugar and reduce inflammation, stabilise key hormones, reduce cravings, lose weight and gain improved health. That’s the message from author Sarah Wilson, who quit sugar in January 2011 as an experimental attempt to get control over her autoimmune disease called, Hashimotos – a disease which attacks the thyroid and mostly affects women over 30. Sugar is a known substance to flare up the condition. After boosting her energy, clearing up her skin and experiencing a happier state of mind and wellness, Sarah wrote a book that took

Are Your Cravings Real?

Are Your Cravings Real?

Mind or Body Cravings? In previous blog posts I’ve explained how when we restrict and deny nourishment to our body (dieting), we often wrestle with cravings (also tiredness and mood swings) until the brain overrides our willpower and has us reaching for a quick fix of fat, sugar and salt. Hunger and cravings are two different sensations. The body regulates our hunger, while the mind wields greater power over food cravings. Hunger serves a more functional purpose, signalling our brains that it’s time to eat and replenish the energy and information we’re running low on. To recap previous articles about the

Pumpkin & Chickpea Curry [Recipe]

Hearty Pumpkin & Chickpea Curry It’s Foodie Friday! I just love a comforting, hot soup that tastes delicious, a little spicy, is easy on my digestion, and packs a big dose of true real food nourishment. This one is adapted from a Coles catalogue! I simply changed a few key ingredients to more healthful ones and opted for fresh where possible. Fairly easy, with a small amount of prep work (mostly chopping pumpkin) you’ll be able to get this nourishing bowl of goodness to the table in a short amount of no fuss time! When my Beloved Craig first made the original
