Digestion…one of the most critical processes in the human body and one which impacts on the health and wellbeing of the entire body.  If you are unwell in any way, shape or form, start by reading these posts:


You are what you absorb – Do you think you have an adequate diet but just don’t feel as good as you should?  This post explores the importance of the digestive system in maintaining many aspects of your health.  It also gives many simple suggestions to improve the functioning of your digestive system so you can absorb all of the nutrients available to you.

How to resolve food intolerance – Fatigued, digestive symptoms, anxious, depressed, sinus, nasal congestion, weight issues, headache, migraine? Children with behavioural disorders? This post offers more than just food avoidance.

The gut brain connection and the role it plays in mental illness – The health of your digestive system affects not only the health of your body, but also your mind.  In this post I’ve included a fabulous article, “Gut feelings”, which explores the concept of the role of the right combination of gut flora (bacteria) being crucial for a healthy mind.

How to live with germs –  I hope you can all take the time to read and share this post. We coexist with germs and we need to make the most of this symbiotic relationship – WE need THEM to survive and be well.

Lacto-fermented foods (starting with dairy and a recipe for labne) – Lacto-fermented foods deliver clear and calculable health benefits. I describe what is is and how it benefits your health (including a recipe for delicious labne to).

Fermenting vegetables – enhances their digestibility and increase their nutrition. Plus it introduces probiotics into your diet. It is a very simple (and cost effective) process, this recipe for ‘probiotic carrot sticks’  will get you started.

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
