The Average Australian Diet The average Australian diet is just that…average. A few months ago, I created awareness in a corporate setting about common packaged foods found in the average Australian home. This project required a pantry display of many different type of foods ranging from beverages, sauces, dairy products, cereals, snack foods and lunch […]

Snack Right Balls n Slices Come 3:30pm and I am hunting for something that is delicious and nutritious. These afternoon treats are high in vitamins, minerals, omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin E, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients and fiber. The basic ingredients for most bliss balls and bars are nuts, dried fruit and a selection of […]

Mex Black Beans This week I played around with cumin and dill seeds toasted and stone ground with sweet and smoked paprika. One food staple always in my pantry is a variety of beans, I can never get enough of beans, I love them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and in between meals. They are so versatile […]

Gluten-Free Corn Fritters While no one in my family is gluten intolerant, I do like the occasional gluten-free dish. The problem with wheat these days is that it’s in everything. So while I’m personally against fad diets that completely remove all grains from your food intake based on the philosophy that we don’t digest gluten, […]

Packadged Foods-2The Average Australian Diet

The average Australian diet is just that…average. A few months ago, I created awareness in a corporate setting about common packaged foods found in the average Australian home. This project required a pantry display of many different type of foods ranging from beverages, sauces, dairy products, cereals, snack foods and lunch box fillers. In my line of work, as well as many other nutritionists and dietitions, we do not always deal with the nutrition-savvy, almond mylk and kale-smoothie-drinking individuals. On a day-to-day basis we deal with people who do not even know what kale or broccoli is, let alone the difficulty in trying to explain the difference between refined carbohydrates and whole carbohydrates. Their answer is usually, “what is a carbohydrate?”. And whilst I have complete appreciation for people like Pete Evans and Sarah Wilson for promoting better food choices, unfortunately, their message is only reaching the nutrition-savvy population. Most people do not even know how to read a nutrition panel or interpret the ingredients list. Therefore, this month, my focus is on coaching you on how to make better choices, how to still eat the foods that you enjoy without all the nasties.  (more…)

This week I played around with cumin and dill seeds toasted and stone ground with sweet and smoked paprika. One food staple always in my pantry is a variety of beans, I can never get enough of beans, I love them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and in between meals. They are so versatile and go with everything. For this recipe I chose black beans. My favourite flavour maker other than a variety of herbs and spices has to be capsicums. Not only are they so nutritious, but very delicious and can turn any bland recipe in to something amazing. (more…)

Kids lunch boxes-5Gluten-Free Corn Fritters

While no one in my family is gluten intolerant, I do like the occasional gluten-free dish. The problem with wheat these days is that it’s in everything. So while I’m personally against fad diets that completely remove all grains from your food intake based on the philosophy that we don’t digest gluten, I do believe that the over-use of refined carbohydrates has been abused by the food manufacturers and, like sugar and salt, it is added to everything. These gluten-free corn fritters were inspired by Teresa Cutter from ‘The Healthy Chef‘, and are great to eat at any time of the day, especially as an addition to the kids lunch boxes, parties and picnics.  (more…)

Introducing Kate Johansson

I’m all about making the wellness journey fun, delicious and inspirational. I’m always searching for priceless health and wellness tips from people of all walks of life because everyone I meet will undoubtedly offer words of inspiration and motivation. This is the kind of stuff I like to explore and in return, give back by sharing it with all who are on a path to better health.

I recently had the opportunity to meet Kate Johansson, the brains behind the all-amazing and delicious brand Koja Health. Meeting Kate and learning more about Koja Health reminded me of of a famous quote by Hippocrates, “let food be thy medicine and medicine thy food”. Kate absolutely represents this statement in her nutritious range of super food mixes that are free from preservatives, additives, artificial colours, artificial flavours, added salt, added sugars, and artificial sweeteners. Once I got my hands on her range I was in love with my new pantry staple! It went on everything – yoghurt, smoothies, salad and baked goods. I hope you enjoy reading my interview with Kate and hope her words inspire you as much as they have inspired me.  (more…)
