Life-changing ‘bread’

I can't explain why this bread is so good, and why it is so life-changing but when there are so many things you "can't" eat, it's refreshing when you come across something so delicious and fulfilling that you enjoy making and sharing! I take this name from its creator, a long time favourite Blog of … Continue reading Life-changing ‘bread’

Sweet Treats (sugar free!)

As I have discussed here, I have been on a journey where I 'quit sugar' over two years ago. Since then I can't believe how much better I feel, not trapped in the sugar highs and lows of life. I'm so much less 'foggy' in the head and have also lost inches all over. I … Continue reading Sweet Treats (sugar free!)

Cooking for the Soul & Recipe

When my mum died, one of the things I missed the most was her incredible meals. She is always remembered for her cooking, her understanding of flavours and of special family rituals.  Whether it was a special occasion like a birthday or just a regular mid-week meal, the food was always restaurant quality. One of … Continue reading Cooking for the Soul & Recipe

Dirty Dozen and Clean 15

A few years ago I undertook a course at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (online but it is based in New York) and the course covered so much ground on topics which traditional Nutrition courses neglect. Since I started there, I've been more and more aware of the dangers of pesticides on our food, pollutants … Continue reading Dirty Dozen and Clean 15

Kale Pesto

I was out with some friends recenlty who thought that if you ate 'sugar free' /gluten free that the food would also be 'taste free'! There are so many amazing flavours that make a meal delicious, and once you discover fresh chilli, lemongrass, fresh herbs, nuts, oils, spices, coconut milk, vanilla pods, and you have … Continue reading Kale Pesto

All things coconutty…

I love coconuts. I love them whole as baby coconuts for their water. I love them as milk. I love them as coconut pieces slightly browned and added to yoghurt, or thrown in my porridge and into sugar free sweet treats, and I love using coconut oil in cooking. I've had lots of people ask … Continue reading All things coconutty…

It’s called a ‘Lifestyle’ retreat, but known lovingly as a health retreat by friends and converts alike. Gwinganna is a special special place. If you find yourself ever … Continue reading Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat. Life-changing.

Quitting sugar…6 weeks on

Six weeks ago my husband and I decided to 'Quit sugar'. I've followed Sarah Wilson's blog for a couple of years, and observed and even partaken in the principles of Sarah Wilson's 'quitting sugar'. But I never did it with a full commitment. I didn't eat much sugar myself, I've been aware of being 'healthy' … Continue reading Quitting sugar…6 weeks on

I quit Sugar!

About 6 months ago I read Sarah Wilson's eBook- I Quit sugar. It made a lot of sense. I'd heard a lot about giving sugar the flick, and knew about how we are all eating far too much of it, and Sarah's book explained it simply and succinctly. I had not known that sugar was … Continue reading I quit Sugar!
