PHD Cleanse


Indulgent is a word I have used far too often lately when describing meals out and social appointments alike. So last week I chose to practice the virtues of another word… repentance.

3-minute Superfood Dinner


Personally I think more things in life should be quick and easy… well some things, dinner being one of them. Spending an hour creating a healthy meal from scratch is probably the last thing you want to do after a long day mid week. When I’m in a rush or just can’t be bothered cooking dinner I have a Japanese inspired go-to meal. It only takes 3 minutes to make and is packed full with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, selenium, zinc and chromium. For a spicy touch try adding cayenne pepper and/or dried chilli.

The Colon Cleanse


There are many different approaches to nutrition, from Ayurveda to Paleolithic, and they all have their own merit. My nutrition philosophy and approach is purely from a digestive perspective. Your digestive system is responsible for eliminating waste and toxins from the body, when this does not happen properly it seriously impacts your overall wellbeing, you may notice slow weight gain, low energy level, headaches, vitamin deficiencies and other such symptoms. Regularly consuming vegetable juices is a great way to help support and maintain healthy digestion. If you’re feeling heavy and bloated or just that your body needs a bit of extra something then you may want to try my colon cleanse recipe using bentonite clay.

Coconut Health Tonic

Coconut on tree

One of my favourite places to visit whenever I’m in Sydney is The Suveran. The Suveran is a dairy free, sugar free, gluten free, wheat free, yeast free and grain free wholefood café. Sounds bad I know but the food these little hippy geniuses make is to die for. Each perfectly balanced meal is made from a delicious range of superfoods, spices, seeds, vegetables, free-range meats and sustainable seafood. You’ll even fall in love with the half broken ‘vintage’ décor.

Juice fasting or cleansing has become the detox method du jour and for good reason. Juicing is one of the fastest ways for our bodies to absorb essential nutrients from fruit and vegetables that support our overall health and immunity. Your body needs an array of different vitamins and minerals to sustain good health,juicing is a great way to concentrate those nutrients to get the benefits without having to eat 5 kgs of fresh produce a day.

Dummy’s Guide to Food Labeling

Nowadays there’s an abundance of ‘health foods’ on supermarket shelves, aisles dedicated to organics, yogurts ‘straight from the farm’ and an array of gluten-free, biodynamic, free-range, ethically harvested delights. But are they really healthy or is it food-marketing dancing on a fine line.

Ice Ice Baby

Indulgent would be one word to describe this time of year… rapacious, spirited and inebriating would be others one may use. However fast (or loose) your December is travelling we could all do with a little less indulgence and a touch more moderation. So here’s a delicious (and moderate) idea to keep you cool this Summer: make your own healthy ice blocks and frozen yoghurt.

Yoghurt Culturing

If the feeling of being hung over is a familiar one of late then you may want to take a moment to consider your gut health. That one tequila shot you forgot about last Friday is like an atomic bomb to your digestive system.

Probiotics play an integral role in your digestive health. One of the best sources of this is homemade yoghurt. Store bought yoghurt, though convenient, contains less than half the amount of ‘live’ beneficial cultures than of homemade yoghurt.
