Naturally Conscious Eating

How to prevent food overwhelm happening to you (or happening again) I’m often asked if you have to eat 100% raw food to enjoy the benefits. In a word, the answer is ‘No’. In fact, I never recommend a 100% raw diet for people. However some people decide that 100% is for them. I have spent long periods of time 100% raw, but mainly I eat between 85-95% raw. Let me explain why There can be so much stress, overwhelm and confusion around food, and I never think that it’s healthy to be completely rigid in the way in which we eat....

Eat More Food!

Eat more food. Yes that’s right, you heard me – Eat more food. But not food-like substances… Eat more REAL food. Flood your body with vibrant, delicious, freshness straight from nature. Choosing food is about working with your body, supporting it because let’s face it our body’s are amazing. No matter what we do to them they keep on going and doing their best. Sometimes their best involves aches and pains and dis-ease, they become confused or overwhelmed, and who can blame them… but these are symptoms, our body’s cries for some extra attention, healing or balance. Body’s naturally...

20 Minute Meals with Soul

We all know that we should be eating more fruit and veg, we have read about the benefits of blueberries, we can recite the phrase ‘an apple day…’, our glossy magazines are full of the wonderous new miracle enzyme/vitamin/bio-flavonoid that have been found in blueberries/broccoli/peaches, but yet somehow we are still not that inspired to overhaul our diet. In fact many of us aren’t even inspired to eat our recommended 5 a day. And who can blame you, unappealing, a little too old and limp fruit in the fruit bowl, salad that has become water in the salad bag....

The Soul of a Carrot

It’s time to reconnect with our food To play, have fun, create and nurture ourselves and the ones we love. Stop taking food so seriously – it’s just food Of course it’s important to our survival, but it’s time to drop the greed, indifference, guilt and shame and confusion that I hear so many of my clients associate with the food that they eat. Whilst I’m on a roll… it’s also time to dump the negative attitude that we have created for ourselves towards food, where it’s almost seen as the enemy. It’s time to remember that food is...

Healthy Eating without Compromise

When people discover that most of the food I eat is raw, the first question is ‘what do you eat?’ People often think I must lead a deprived life and nibble on celery and carrot sticks, the second question is ‘why would you want to do that?’ Raw food is quite simply food that has not been processed and not heated above 46 degree Celsius. It includes fresh fruits and vegetables, sprouted seeds and legumes, seaweeds, nuts and dried fruit. I love food, so it might seem strange that my diet appears limited. However since eating a high raw...

Real Food for Real Women

When I was growing up I was surrounded by women who appeared to be on a never ending cycle of diets. They were calorie counting, eating diet foods, shakes, powders, supplements, and eating according to if it was a ‘red’ day or a ‘green’ day. There were books, magazines, videos, weigh-ins; an endless obsession over food. There was exuberance when 1 lb was lost and upset if a 1lb was gained; happiness appeared to be dictated by the scales. However what I found most intriguing was that these women thought it would somehow be okay to eat crisps and...

What should you really be eating?

I love shopping for food and I have to admit that I am one of those people that reads labels. Not because I’m interested in the calories and the fat content, but because I love to see how many ingredients processed and packaged food contains that I either don’t recognise or that I can’t pronounce. Food is a far cry from what our Grandparents called food. The choice as we walk up and down the supermarket aisles is staggering. As your senses are bombarded with colour and promises, where should you really begin and how do you know what...
