Where to shop and markets...

This is my favourite market. I go there every Saturday at 9am straight after training. They have the freshest, season produce, plus lots of pasture raised meats. http://www.eveleighmarket.com.au/farmers.html

Quick fixes

I have come across quite a few scary websites. I'm not mentioning names but the quick fix detox diets that are out there are crazy. Detoxes and diets offering a range of results from weight loss, to boosting immunity, to fertility!

Update on cleanse

Some of you have been asking for updates on my cleanse. I am feeling amazing, as if I have been reborn. Still taking my herbs, have one day left of them. Digestion is perfect and have lots of energy this is probably due to increase ability to absorb nutrients.

I have had a few moments of failure. I had a wedding to go to where I had 2 glasses of wine. I know this doesn't seem like much but the hang over was horrible. I have made up my mind, I am no longer going to drink except for the occasional with friends or to celebrate a special occasion.

I have started craving porridge. I have allowed myself to have it once a week but I use regular whole rolled organic oats (not quick oats), soak them over night and cook in Cleopatra's milk on a low heat in the morning. I add a pinch of salt for taste and a bit of rapadura. Delicious : )

I am official finishing the cleanse next Saturday. I am looking forward to a weekend in the country side, with freshly picked organic vegetables and lots of time to rest and digest. I plan not to go back to eating refined sugars, soy (not even soy sauce)and carbohydrates. I will cook my own sweets and desserts when I feel like them. I never want to eat non organic eggs, milk or meats. I know sometimes it is hard ie eating out but I will do my best. Of course I will take lots of photos and update you on a fabulous long weekend of eating and resting.

Happy Easter

What's Wrong With "Politically Correct" Nutrition?

"Avoid saturated fats"
Saturated fats play many important roles in the body. They provide integrity to the cell membrane, enhance the body's use of essential fatty acids, enhance the immune system, protect the liver and contribute to strong bones. Saturated fats do not cause heart disease. In fact, saturated fats are the preferred food for the heart. Your body makes saturated fats out of carbohydrates.

Weston A Price

About Dr. Weston A. Price

Dr. Weston A. Price, a Cleveland dentist, has been called the "Charles Darwin of Nutrition." In his search for the causes of dental decay and physical degeneration that he observed in his dental practice, he turned from test tubes and microscopes to unstudied evidence among human beings. Dr. Price sought the factors responsible for fine teeth among the people who had them- the isolated "primitives." The world became his laboratory. As he travelled, his findings led him to the belief that dental caries and deformed dental arches resulting in crowded, crooked teeth and unattractive appearance were merely a sign of physical degeneration, resulting from what he had suspected-nutritional deficiencies.

Pasture Pefect

Lately I have been making a real point of only buying and eating pasture raised meats. Pasture raised meats have a higher nutrient content than just organic. They are also very humanely raise and slaughtered.

Raw Milk

I don't drink pasturised milk. I don't see the point. Real whole milk has so many more benefits.
