Healthy Cafe Review – Fish Mongers

Healthy Cafe Review - Fish Mongers

  Definitely not your usual greasy fish and chips, Fish Mongers Cafe has been my staple favorite takeaway since it first opened in Byron Bay, before popping up in Bondi and Manly Beach, Sydney. I’ve been telling local clients for years there is no excuse to eat unhealthy takeaway anymore, thanks to the freshly grilled fish with gourmet salad, and a stick of fresh BBQ’d corn on the cob and you won’t even feel like your missing out on the chips with the sensational crispy slithers of sweet potato garnish on top. All this is served up with a delicious … Continue reading

Why putting off your health today, will make tomorrow harder

Why putting off your health today, will make tomorrow harder

The healthy habits we should practice each day, to create a healthy tomorrow. I often get asked what are the most important things we need to do in order to be healthy and my response is always the same… ‘It’s the little things we do each day that will determine our health tomorrow’ A few weeks ago I was out to lunch with one of my ‘not so healthy’ friends.  He drinks too much coffee, smokes, works too hard and does little to no exercise, except for the kind of weight lifting that involves putting a few too many schooners … Continue reading

Tridosha Salt and Spice Blends

I love these products not only for their cute stainless steel containers, but because they are a great way to add healthy flavour to any savoury dish, so there’s no excuse for bland meals ever again, even on a detox! There are 5 blends so try them all.  Best of all this range use sea salt – rich in trace minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium, manganese, magnesium, zinc & some iodine.

The truth about detox

The truth about detox

The month of February has become synonymous with undertaking the dreaded detox after bidding farewell to the holiday and silly season festivities for another year, but it seems just as many folks argue the annual cleanse is a total waste of time, money and effort and unnecessary for our health, even dangerous! The fact is we live in a fast paced world and many of us complain of feeling ‘overloaded’ and overwhelmed with clutter – be it mental clutter from information overload from technology, social media and the internet, or juggling work and home life with some sort of social life, through to physical … Continue reading

So if you’re looking for a healthy & convenient breakfast option, this is the perfect way to get your morning (easy to digest) protein hit! check out my coconut, raw chocolate & banana … Continue reading

A bit about this blog

Welcome to my blog, I’m Sally Joseph, I’m a qualified Clinical Nutritionist, with over 14 yrs professional experience in private practice, researching and studying nutritional medicine approaches to optimal health.   Before studying to become a Nutritionist, I overcame my own personal battle with Chronic Fatigue  / Adrenal Exhaustion Syndrome, Lupus and more recently, Hashimoto’s – an auto immune condition of the thyroid as well as a pituitary adenoma. I’m mentioning all this because I think it helps my readers to know ‘I’ve been there’, when it comes to suffering the debilitating effects of chronic and supposedly ‘incurable’ illnesses, not to … Continue reading
