How to Establish Healthy Eating Habits (in Six Simple Steps)

Since starting Well Nourished a year and a half ago, I’m regularly contacted by people wanting to improve their own and/or families diet.  Many are eating lots of processed food and are wanting to transition to include more whole foods in their diet.  But they feel at a loss as to where to start, especially Read More

Why processed food is addictive and how to train your brain to prefer healthy foods

Despite wanting to change unhealthy eating habits, many people find themselves in a rut and unable to make sustainable changes in their diets.  This is because processed and junk foods are addictive, in fact, some research has found similarities between food addiction and drug addiction.  The good news is that a recent (albeit small) study Read More

How to Make Change Stick

Over the past few weeks I’ve discussed all things stress, beginning with adrenal stress; how it can make you sick and a natural approach to treating it. Psychotherapist Jane Faulkner shared her 5 simple steps to stress less now and last week I discussed some strategies I’ve developed to exercise and meditate every day.  Today’s video is something I Read More

How to live with germs?

Detox your diet – safe and sustainable ways to swing into a healthy 2014

The New Year marks a time to start afresh, a new beginning.  When I was consulting, this was always the time of year when I was bombarded with old and new patients alike requesting support to detox, or kick-start a healthier way of living.  This, my first ‘New Year’ at Well Nourished, I’ve been asked Read More

Nutrigenomics – your diet controls your genes?

I’m always frustrated when I hear people relate their state of health to being “in their genes.”  I love the analogy that whilst your genes are like a loaded ‘gun’, it is your diet, lifestyle, stress and other environmental exposures that pull the ‘trigger’ that causes disease and premature ageing.  In other words, we have Read More

Survive or thrive?

Survive or thrive? Any processed food can be made to taste, look and feel any combination of ways.  Food science can create anything – using any combination of substances sometimes (but not always) derived from real food, combined with a variety of additives, colours, flavours, enhances, binders, etc; until it becomes a substance that can Read More

Kind words…

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

“You have truly helped me and my family to lead a healthier lifestyle. I’ve been referring to your page every few days, very inspiring, so thank you!” Emily

“Thank you very much for your awesome website & facebook page posts, you have motivated & inspired me heaps!” Fiona

“Just discovered your site 3 weeks ago, its been a great help with kids lunches for back to school, thanks so much!” Ange

“What a fantastic blog filled with so many great recipes and information!” Carla

“I just wanted to let you know that you have absolutely inspired me to a better way of eating, I’ve been making my shopping lists based on recipes you’ve shared and am educating my kids with the reasons behind different foods and why they are good etc! This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
