What is Ayurveda? – a very, very brief overview

What is Ayurveda? – a very, very brief overview

As a Nutritional Therapist,  I strongly believe in offering evidence-based nutritional advice, informed heavily by current research, the biochemistry of the human body and using the planet’s natural resources. My approach is evidence-based but not evidence-limited.  The science of nutrition is constantly evolving and although my aim is to keep at the forefront of research … Read More

Magnesium – the miracle mineral

Magnesium – the miracle mineral

When you’re a nutrition geek (like me) you don’t just have a list of favourite foods, but you also have geek-like-wellness-crushes (Hello Rupy Aujla) and yes… favourite minerals.

Back for good

I’ve been a little quiet in the blogosphere for well the PAST YEAR and I apologise. I could tell you what I’ve been telling myself for the whole time; I’ve been waaaaaay too busy.

During most changes of seasons I’ll declare “I JUST LOVE (insert current season)!!” and then continue listing all the awesome things about said season.

The next adventure…

The next adventure…

“How are you feeling about this weekend?” my beaut of a friend Sarah asked me last week. “Yeah ok… a bit nervous maybe” I replied. “Don’t worry about it lovely” Sarah soothed, “it’s natural when you’re starting something new”. I hesitated, “….I know…. but thats not exactly what I’m nervous about. Well…. it’s more…. I … Read More
