How detox can ovehaul your health

How detox can ovehaul your health

  When searching for answers to our health problems, it’s essential to target the root underlying cause.  Many of us, including the conventional medicine model, tend to focus on treating the visible symptoms, failing to realise that the cause of many health problems actually stems from a poorly functioning digestive system – specifically the GUT or gastrointestinal tract, in addition to eating the wrong foods and being exposed to excess levels of stress.

I whip this superfood power smoothie up on the mornings

Organic Chicken & Spring Vegetable Soup

Organic Chicken & Spring Vegetable Soup

  There’s something quite cathartic about making your own chicken soup and despite what you might think, making the stock from scratch really is easy. Sure it may take a little bit of preparation, but your efforts will be rewarded with a deep sense of satisfaction not to mention your tummy will love you for it! I like to make a batch on a lazy Sunday afternoon, listening to my favourite tunes. Just be sure to keep some aside to freeze for those nights you cannot be bothered cooking, but still insist on something nutritious and delicious! It’s true what they say, chicken soup really is good for

This month… I decide to detox

Some of you may be wondering why a nutritionist needs to go on a detox or even what a nutritionist’s version of a detox is! You see I don’t tend to embark on the traditional annual detox to give my insides a once over. The reason being, I decided a long time ago it was far easier to make daily healthy food choices, take certain supplements and adopt certain lifestyle practices to ensure I function at my best most of the time. My definition of my body functioning at it’s best goes something like this…. Having the energy to do what I want in life

My Detox Grocery List

My Detox Grocery List

  This morning I paid a visit to my local farmers market in Bangalow, NSW to stock my fridge with lots of yummy fresh organic produce in preparation for my detox.
