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

5 Healthy Habits To Stay Clean & Lean In 2015

5 Healthy Habits To Stay Clean & Lean In 2015

I often get asked “what are the top things I can do to be healthy each day? And my response is always the same – “there is no silver bullet” when it comes to achieving your ideal weight and optimal energy, but rather, it’s the sum of all parts”… meaning it’s all the little things you do each and every day that add up over time to determine your health. But if you could choose 5 things to do everyday that would make a serious dent in boosting your health…. these would be my pick: Start your day with warm

7 Mistakes Paelo lovers make that are harming their health

7 Mistakes Paelo lovers make that are harming their health

  There’s no arguing the Paleo diet has taken the world by storm and I’m far more in support of, than against this movement as it shares many of my nutritional philosophies – eating whole, unprocessed foods that are as close to nature as possible, and nothing our ancestors wouldn’t recognise, as well as being gluten and dairy free and low in sugar.  However I find many Paleo enthusiasts get the wrong end of the stick when it comes to some of the Paleo principles.  Here are seven of the most common mistakes I find people make when following a Paleo

Should you trust the glycemic index

Should you trust the glycemic index

  You may have heard the term ‘low GI’ or Glyceamic Index bandied around in the plight to lose weight, with many processed food manufacturers sporting ‘LOW GI’ on products including Milo and sugar laden yoghurts and breakfast cereals!   But just how much trust can we place in these two letters ‘GI’ when it comes to gauging the healthfulness of a food?  In my view, most foods claiming to be ‘low GI’ are up there with the Heart Foundation’s tick of approval – highly misleading and provide a skewed view of the nutritional value of a food. So firstly what is

How to do a post Easter detox

How to do a post Easter detox

So I guess I don’t need to ask if you over indulged in a few too many chocolate Easter eggs, hot cross buns with lashings of honey and maybe even a few too many sherbets this Easter break……?  After all isn’t that what holidays are for!? But with the Anzac day holiday on Friday, many of us are taking an extended and well deserved break and that might translate to a little extra ‘over indulgence’.  So now’s a good time to make a plan for tackling that sugar monster that may have taken up residence in your brain, post Easter

Butter vs margarine… still confused?

Butter vs margarine... still confused?

  It seems many of us are still falling victim to the clever marketing ploys adopted by manufacturers of margarine.  Claims that margarine is ‘good for your heart health’ and will ‘lower your cholesterol’, not to mention the latest Meadow lea advertisement using cute little kids to ‘guilt’ us into using margarine, or we’ll develop heart disease and die, is quite frankly totally misleading  and a load of rubbish!  I say rubbish, because that’s exactly what margarine is and I’m about to explain why.  To make matters worse, the fact margarine is endorsed by the heart foundation, sporting it’s little

Sugar…To Quit Or Not To Quit

Sugar...To Quit Or Not To Quit

Just a few days after returning from my travels in America, my PA flicked me no less than 96 emails from my readers asking my opinion on a recent ‘sugar war’ that had broken out between a journalist and a nutritionist.  I read the article in question and was some what amused as these sorts of controversies always seem to come round when the latest health  craze is hitting the streets. So I feel compelled to respond to those who have asked about my stance on this argument, not only because so many of you have requested I clear up the confusion, but also because  Sarah Wilson was a client of mine, when she consulted

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
