6 Mistakes People Make With Their Green Juice

6 Mistakes People Make With Their Green Juice

Just like green smoothies green juices have become all the rage when it comes to living a healthy life, but like many crazes, people can get a bit ‘crazy’ and derail with some of the core principles when it comes to embracing certain healthy habits.  I recently wrote about this in relation to the Paleo trend.  But is it any wonder that so many people find themselves bewildered and confused, thanks to the mass of information available on the internet nowadays  – and the majority of it coming from unqualified sources.  But in this post, I want to focus on six of … Continue reading

Natural Ways To Treat Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome

Natural Ways To Treat Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome

It’s estimated 12-18% of Australian women suffer Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) making it the most common endocrine disorder experienced in reproductive aged women.  The question is why are so many women falling victim to this often debilitating and increasing epidemic? PCOS is caused by a combination of hormonal and metabolic imbalances, resulting in irregularities in ovarian function. Factors such as excess sugar and starchy carbohydrate intake, obesity, genetic predisposition, inactivity, smoking, medications such as steroids and excess oestrogen production, or exposure to xeno oestrogens, are all factors that can induce insulin resistance and PCOS.  Prolonged periods of chronic stress can also contribute to … Continue reading

5 ways to ward off winter weight gain

5 ways to ward off winter weight gain

If you’re like me, winter sends a chill right to your core, making it my least favourite season which most definitely has something to do with having an underactive thyroid, and even though mine is largely under control now, it hasn’t changed the fact that I am the worlds greatest cold frog!

How does your muesli measure up..?

How does your muesli measure up..?

This is a photo of my morning muesli on the days I don’t feel like my usual green goddess power smoothie.  But this ain’t your conventional muesli or breakfast cereal, because there are two major differences that can make several kilo’s difference to your hips!  I’m talking about the fact that most conventional breakfast cereals contain up to 30% sugar or up to 40 grams of sugar per 100 grams – that’s a whopping 2 tablespoons of the white stuff!!  To give you a comparison, my home made muesli pictured above, contains just 7 grams of sugar per 100 grams – not that you … Continue reading

Sugar…To Quit Or Not To Quit

Why I need to detox…

Why I need to detox...

  So you may recall I have spent the past couple of months gallivanting across America for work, which was all very exciting , but exhausting at the same time, and the travel, combined with the fact I was in America – land of GMO foods and high fructose corn syrup,  certainly posed it’s challenges when it came to sticking to healthy eating.  For me it wasn’t a case of not actively trying to eat healthy food, but rather the fact I was stuck on aeroplanes and in air ports every few days, along with hotels that offered a gluten fest for breakfast each day – … Continue reading
