Electrolyte Drink

  • 16 June 2022

Hydrating During Cooler Months Do you struggle to stay hydrated during the cooler months? If so you are definitely not alone, in the cooler days the whole day can pass with me only drinking one or two glasses of water. Hydrating the body is important no matter what the weather is doing as dehydration can lead to electrolyte imbalance in the body. Electrolytes that are found in the body are...

Raw Cacao and Avocado Smoothie

  • 08 October 2020

A Blissful Recipe and Countdown to the Launch of the Online Course Still on mood foods this week. I don’t know about you but it has been an up and down week for me.

To Cleanse or not to Cleanse, that is the question

  • 06 March 2018

I ran out of time this week to write the blog I had planned so diverting a little to tell you about my story with cleansing. Who fasts here? Who goes on a cleanse? Who is like me and never fasted in their lives? I have to admit to you all that I don't believe in fasting, it's just not for me. I can easily get low blood sugar and low blood pressure so that's always been a great excuse for not...

The Super Food of Super Foods (and it grows right here in Australia)

  • 07 August 2014

I can't stop raving about hemp seeds and I only discovered them a couple of years ago. A big bag accompanies me on any retreat I cater for and I am known to take them with me when I go away. In my eyes hemp seeds are really the super food of super foods as they are a complete protein. Along with soy beans and bea pollen they are the only complete protein in a plant based diet. In simple terms...

Flavouring WaterClean sparkling drinkable water is very much on my mind at the moment, as it is for many in the Byron Bay Shire, where we live.  A one hour drive away from where I live is a town called Bentley and in that town there is a proposed coal seam gas mining site. Just this morning three thousand people including myself held vigil at 5 am in a gathering of peaceful protection of...
