Raw Chocolate Ice-cream Cake

By |April 27th, 2017|

Growing up in Australia, the weather was hot and we played in the street straight after school until our parents called us in for dinner.
We used to be so creative in putting together our own outdoor games. We made home to just about every area of the street and yard possible. From holding running races up and and down mounds of sand my Dad was using (or hoping to use) for renovations, to filling our tiny row boat with water and pretending it was an olympic size swimming pool, to climbing high and [...]

Remedies to BOOST your BODY!

By |February 5th, 2016|

After many of you reaching out to me recently,  sharing icky body symptoms, flu stories or just letting me know of a dip in energy this month, I was inspired to put together my favourite immune boosting recipes.
We live in the Caribbean and it feels like summer most of the year round here, so most of these remedies I store in the fridge or at room temperature  but you can down many of these as [...]

By |January 6th, 2015|

Ah, it’s morning, it’s cleansing time and it’s 2015! Feels great doesn’t it?
As I sit here sipping on my kale juice (part of my New Years cleanse), I had to stop still in my boots and share it! After all, sharing awesome information is what brings us closer together and gives us a platform on which to launch our brilliant selves!
Confession of a nutritionist
When I first started drinking green goblets of juice back in 2007, I honestly thought it was GROSS! “Why on earth would anyone [...]

5 DAY Pre-Christmas Cleanse

By |November 18th, 2014|

 We all have the capability of sticking to a plan, creating a whole new lifestyle and changing thoughts and habits. Yet most of us STILL seem to have trouble committing to our health over Christmas.
As a trainer and coach of almost 10 years (I can’t believe that number!), I have seen many healthy and unhealthy Christmas’s come and go. I have witnessed many colleagues, raw foodists, family, friends and life long clients turn into sugar-high spirits over the Christmas period. I have even had times in my life [...]

So many months, so many changes and we are finally back up and running with greater force than ever before!

Oooh so excited to share this Thirsty Thursday recipe with you. It’s so simple I had to double take and ask myself if I am really going to post this!? The truth is, I nearly fell over this morning when I drank my mango passion and I decided it was time I blogged about it.

3 ripe mangoes
2 ripe passionfruit
1/2 cup filtered water

Peel mangoes and remove flesh from seeds. Add mango chunks to blender. Cut passionfruit in half and scoop pulp into blender.

Absolicious Apple Pie

By |July 4th, 2013|

After 3 days of juicing greens and a long week working on projects, I’m ready to treat myself to a massage, some relaxation and incredible food. We are planning some mysterious mexican dishes for our Sunday meal and I just can’t think of a better dessert than good old fashioned Apple Pie!
But .. why do our stomachs turn, our fear levels rise and our hearts sink when we hear these two words. Is it because we are desperately desiring just a tiny taste of the sweet combination of fruit [...]

True Love Smoothie

By |June 14th, 2013|

It’s THIRSTY THURSDAY and I already know what the favourite will be on the menu today.
As I sit here on a small island in the Caribbean (you would think I’m about to say “looking out over the turquoise sea and coconut trees”), I’m actually snug as a bug  indoors as it pours with rain outside (you guessed it, hurricane season started early this year!). With the downpour and cool breeze, I have a craving for something that’s going to give my soul a punch of flavour and the [...]
