Gut Healing Bone Broth

Gut Healing Bone Broth

  Bone Broth has long been used as a medicinal healing remedy to maintain and restore healthy digestive and immune function. The gelatin found in bone broth helps to reduce joint pain and inflammation, thanks to the amino acids, glycine, proline, and arginine, as well as being rich in chondroitin sulfates, glucosamine, and other compounds extracted from the boiled down cartilage. Bone broth also contains high amounts of calcium, magnesium, and other nutrients that play an important role in healthy bone formation as well promoting healthy hair and nail growth. You can use any bones you prefer – including chicken, beef, pork, or … Continue reading

Whatever you do…READ YOUR LABELS people

Whatever you do...READ YOUR LABELS people

I’m currently in the United States for work which means discovering new foods and familiarising myself with new brands.  All too often it’s so easy to pick up a product based on what’s displayed on the front of the pack – and be lured by terms such as  ‘organic, no added sugar, fat free, low GI, non GMO, Gluten Free, dairy free’…. the list is a mile long! But whilst some of these terms may represent a genuinely healthy product, it’s not until you turn to the back label, that you will discover the FULL story about what’s really contained … Continue reading

Out Of My (food) Comfort Zone…

Out Of My (food) Comfort Zone...

I’m in the US right now and so far I’ve travelled 7 cities in 14 days, so if  jet lag, followed by jumping planes, trains and automobiles every couple of days hasn’t been enough to upset the apple cart, contending with trying to find real, whole food on the run in some places, has been.  When I travel, I try to eat just like I do back home  – the same as I recommend in my book, Eat Yourself Healthy.  My digestive system has grown accustomed to it’s usual Green Goddess juice  or super food power smoothie first thing of a … Continue reading

Tips to keep the waist line down travelling

Tips to keep the waist line down travelling

Let me ask you something…. what do you eat when travelling or stuck waiting in an airport terminal? Do you grab a bagel, a burger, a boost juice thick shake, a BLT sandwich? Or perhaps you see the airport transit lounge as a place to indulge in the dirty bird (aka KFC) or the golden arches?…..Or maybe it’s the bucket of hot chips that suck you in every time? Have you ever noticed that when travelling you tend to go for indulgences that you ordinarily wouldn’t touch? I know for me travel and airport terminals can trigger a kind of … Continue reading

Ayurvedic Calming Tea

Ayurvedic Calming Tea

  Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India, dating back over 5000 years. The concept of using ‘food as medicine’ forms the basis of this ancient practice. Meaning if you’re going to put food in your body, you may as well make choices that have a medicinal and healing effect on the body, versus those that are toxic and disease producing. Making tea is one of my all time favourite rituals and this blend of traditional Ayurvedic spices is a perfect example of using food as medicine, because it has an incredibly soothing and calming effect on the nervous system. Unlike … Continue reading
