Sam and Mel are in the kitchen talking about quinoa – how to cook it, why it’s so good for you, and how to include it in one ripper of a fresh salad.Read More
In a couple of weeks it will have been three years since I started Gerson Therapy, and one year since I completed it. However, when I say ‘completed it’, I don’t mean stop-all-together-and-go-back-to-eating-crap. Far from it. These days, my diet is still very much rooted in the Gerson foundation and I absolutely love it.Read More
Amy Landry is a former professional dancer, a current yoga teacher, and student of Ayurveda. Amy and I have been bumping into each other online for a couple of years and I had the pleasure of meeting her in person when she recognised my voice across a raw, vegan café in Sydney. I love Amy’s foodie philosophy, and I’m thrilled to share her with you.Read More
If I had just five second to stand up on a global soap box and declare something to the masses, it would be this: Being healthy does not mean deprivation. In order to adopt a clean and healthy diet, you don’t actually have to give anything up. It’s simply about educating yourself and swapping out junk foods by replacing them with foods that are natural, whole, nutritious and way more satisfying.Read More
Where do I start? I have so much love and respect for Nat Kringoudis that it’s hard for words to do it justice. Not only is Nat one of my healthtalks co-stars (she is actually the brains behind the project), but she is also a Chinese medicine doctor, a natural fertility specialist, an author, a blogger, a mum of two gorgeous children, a wife, and a really wonderful friend. She is a super woman.Read More
I’ve known/been friends with/dated a fair few tradies in my time, but none of them have been healthy. So when I stumbled onto Dane Ellevsen on Facebook one day and saw him inspiring people with his Healthy Tradie persona, I knew I had to get in contact with him to share him with you.Read More
Out of everyone I’ve been fortunate enough to connect with through my work in the wellness world, Kim Morrison would have to be one of my favourites. Not only is she one of the nicest people I’ve met, but she co-wrote a book all about self care – my number one priority on the planet – called Like Chocolate For Women. Kim is also skilled in aromatherapy, fitness, nutrition, and beauty, and has her own line of essential oils and natural skin care called Twenty8.Read More
Shae Cantrell is the graphic designer, animal-loving, plant-enthusiastic creator of one of my new recipe website finds, The Vedge. Not only does Shae whip up amazing dishes, and beautifully photograph them, but she is also the brains behind Sprouts – an app she created that reminds you to soak your seeds, and then when to drain, rinse and harvest them.Read More
Foodie Friday is getting another shake up this week with a Q&A and recipe from Aussie hip hop artist, Drapht (aka Paul Reid).
You may know of Drapht from his latest album,‘The Life of Riley’, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA charts. Or perhaps you’re familiar with his hugely popular hit, the platinum-selling “Rapunzel”? It’s insanely catchy. Or maybe you’ve seen Drapht on stage at Splendour in the Grass, Pyramid Rock or the Big Day Out?
However, I know Drapht as Pauly Reid, the awesome guy who reached out to me via Twitter a little while ago to congratulate me on my Gerson Therapy feat. Pauly was looking into Gerson for his own health issues, and from that an instant internet friendship was formed.Read More
