Our inner beauty flows through to influence our outer beauty in more ways than one.

Haloumi and avocado boats

Haloumi and avocado boats

  Vegan – Vegetarian – Sugar Free – Dairy Free – Low GI – Medium GI I made this dish up one day after staring aimlessly into my fridge wondering what on earth I was going  to eat for lunch!  When suddenly inspiration was born from the slab or haloumi and coz lettuce hiding amongst the jars of various condiments. Thankfully one of those condiments was a little jar of homemade coriander and macadamia nut pesto. I had no sooner gently pan fried a couple of pieces of haloumi in  virgin coconut oil and placed them inside a few leaves of coz lettuce with avocado, drizzled with the home made pesto … Continue reading

Which foods should you buy organic?

Which foods should you buy organic?

  There’s a lot of talk about whether eating organically produced food is worth the money and health benefits. This is something I get consulted on regularly, including a recent article I contributed to for Fernwood Gym’s magazine. My advice when it comes to buying organic food, at the very least stick to organic eggs and chicken (you can read why here) and avoid non-organic varieties of ‘THE DIRTY DOZEN’ fruit and vegetables – created by The Environmental Working Group (EWG). Some of you may have heard a bit about the The Dirty Dozen recently, but not understand exactly what it is. Put simply, it is a … Continue reading

  Did I grab your attention? Here’s a nothing naughty treat that’s bound to win the little kids and big kids over in place of ice cream! You can whip this recipe up in 5 minutes flat with just a few simple ingredients.   If you have been following my EYH program and feel like it’s safe to introduce a little sweetness back in, this recipe will do the trick.  It’s kind  a of mix between frozen banana yoghurt and sheep’s balls….ok maybe not the latter, but I’ve coined this recipe as such because I swapped the cow’s yoghurt for sheep – which contains the … Continue reading

One Man’s Incredible Story Part II

One Man's Incredible Story Part II

  You may recall Fred’s story from my last post about his journey to recovery from acute, debilitating anxiety, simply through changing his diet and fixing his gut and replenishing nutrient deficiencies. As you may recall Fred had suffered major anxiety as far back as his childhood, along with ADHD and later on, alcoholism and chronic fatigue. The Dr’s answer to Fred’s search for answers….. dose him up on a cocktail of chemical uppers and downers,  as well as more misdiagnoses than underwear changes!  There is no doubt that some of the pharmaceutical medications he was prescribed brought Fred back from the brink of near death and … Continue reading

Homemade Chocolate

Homemade Chocolate

 Gluten free, Dairy free, Diabetic Friendly, Low Suagr, Vegan, Anti Candida If you love chocolate but have been trying to get off sugar then you will love my recipe for the homemde stuff! But first, I want to get your expectations right….chocolate in it’s healthy state is NOT sweet like normal milk chocolate because the whole idea behind eating raw dark chocolate is to reap the nutritional benefits of the raw cacao, which is rich in minerals such as magnesium and antioxidants and because it’s so low in sugar and dairy free, you will only need a small piece to nip those sugar … Continue reading
