Changing your habits – gentle steps to make a difference

12 November 2014 @ 7:18 pm, by admin |
Filed under: Misc

Changing your habits is all about making one small change at a time. All of those small tweaks to your day can add up to something big.

What have you done that’s made a big difference for you?

Have you been inspired to make changes?

Keep this in mind to help your habits stick:
Start small. Do not completely overhaul your current routine in one day. It’s easy to get over-motivated and try to tackle too much, which can backfire. Focus on making a series of small steps, each of which is attainable, rather than attempting…

Picking the best from our Paleo people

9 November 2014 @ 8:30 pm, by admin |
Filed under: Nutritional Tips

1. Back to basics.

The paleo diet shuns processed foods, so the emphasis is on eating closer to nature, the need to eat more whole, fresh, nutrient-rich foods that don’t come in a package.

2. Return of homemade.

Since so many foods are off-limits, and you can’t always get paleo-approved items when eating out, paleo followers are cooking more at home.

3. Abolishing a fear of fat.

Paleo is not a low-fat diet. In fact, it celebrates certain fats. For too long, people thought all fat was bad, so I’m glad to see…

Our pals ‘The Happy Pear’ cookbook on sale at Select Stores

I have a long & healthy relationship with Stephen and David Flynn from The Happy Pear. We met 10 years ago as we both started in the health and wholefood world around the same time. Well I like to say I was born about 6 months before them but who’s counting at the end of the day we’re all in the same boat. LOL. It’s fantastic that they have stuck to their guns when it comes to appreciation of the plant based diet, vegetables and importance of health and exercise within the family unit. This is now encompassed and passionately…

story behind the story: LEGUMES BEANS & LENTILS

20 October 2014 @ 10:16 pm, by admin |
Filed under: Nutritional Tips

Legumes are the fruits of podded plants, from beans, lentils and chickpeas to carob and even peanuts! They’re a fabulous shelf stable ingredient for the pantry, adaptable to breakfast, lunch, tea and even dessert.

Why legumes are good for you (& the planet)

Legumes are tasty, inexpensive and nutritious, and they actually benefit the environment by naturally ‘fixing’ nitrogen in the earth for healthy, fertile soil.

Protein:
Legumes are a very good source of plant protein, containing between 20 – 25 % protein by weight. For this reason they’re an important ingredient in vegetarian cuisine, particularly when combined with…

Boost Up on Iron

Boost Up on Iron

Iron is one of 15 minerals found in our environment known to be essential for our bodies, assisting with energy metabolism, oxygen transport and more. However, dietary iron is poorly absorbed; as a result, iron deficiency anemia is the most common nutrient deficiency in the world.

Vegans are at highest risk for iron deficiency but not because of the low iron content of plant foods. Rather it’s due to the extremely low bioavailability of plant-sourced iron. Lentils, tempeh, pumpkin seeds, blackstrap molasses and cashews all contain iron — but less than 10 percent of…

Our Spelt Banana Bread recipe – sugar free bloat free & moist

2 October 2014 @ 9:34 pm, by admin |
Filed under: Recipes

Almost everybody appreciates a slice of good banana bread! Toasted or untoasted, drizzled with a little honey and a dusting of cinnamon…

This version uses natural ingredients to enhance the flavour and nutritional value of a sweet that is often made with refined ingredients. Spelt is a delicious, complex and slightly nutty tasting alternative to wheat that many people find easier on the digestive system, whilst the yoghurt and bananas keep everything moist and more-ish. It’s just the way banana bread should be!

Ingredients (makes 1 loaf)

300 g natural yoghurt (McDonnells Farm or Mossfield Farm)

1 tsp bicarbonate…
