A gluten free diet can be a healthy choice and for some can be a life changer. I know for me going gluten free meant opening up a new world - no more fatigue, better sleep, waking up with energy, no more giant swollen belly after eating and, the big one - no more depression. These days gluten free living is getting easier and easier thanks to it's growing popularity and fame. When I first cut out gluten it was rare to find a cafe that had any GF signs on the menu, now I often
This recipe is definitely one of my favourites. I've always been a big fan of a banana bread breakfast. I, like most other people, assumed it was a healthy(ish) choice but one bite told me this definitely tasted too good to be true. Many years ago while working in a corporate position, I'd have a slice of toasted, buttered banana bread and a coffee for my daily mid-morning snack. I gained around 2kgs in 1 month despite this being my only change. And so it was confirmed, banan
The secret to being a morning person is having something to look forward to- a delicious and healthy breakfast to welcome you into the day. Ok maybe that's not really the secret. The secret is correcting the issue causing the morning grump - a good sleep routine, good stress management, optimise your nutrition and exercising in the morning sure helps too. However one thing's for sure, I've never gone to bed thinking "I can't wait to wake up and eat toast!" - but maybe that's

I love a gourmet breakfast! Here's a recipe that's so good, you'll be counting the minutes to bedtime just to wake up and eat it all over again.

Pesto Scrambled Eggs with StirFry Greens Ingredients (serves 1) 1 large handful of organic kale 1 handful of bukchoy, chopped 2 organic eggs Handful of Pecans Directions Chop your greens and place in the pan with 1-2 Tbsp of your homemade "Super Pesto".
I LOVE pesto and have often been caught eating it from the jar with a spoon. When I made the tough decision to give up dairy I instantly knew I'd need to set out to recreate this delicious condement. But why recreate when you can reinvent? This super charged pesto is oozing with nutrients, bursting with flavour and keeps well in the fridge for at least a week (assuming you have the willpower to leave it alone for that long). This recipe is as delicious as it is nutrient dense
With Christmas just around the corner it's time to stockpile your favourite healthy treats. Loading up on delicious, but healthy, treats helps you to enjoy the festivities and feasting without feeling bloated, tired or compromising your weight loss goals. Here's one of my favourite recipes. These protein balls are fun, and quite messy, to make so are a great recipe to get your kids involved with making. Ingredients: 1-2 scoops of your favourite protein powder (I used Raw prot
Calling all chocoholics!! Ever dreamed of eating chocolate pudding for breakfast? Now you can while still boosting energy, vitality and even losing weight! Keeping your blood sugar stable is a very important factor during a weight loss program as we all know. However blood sugar balance is also vital for maintaining general health also. We have become slaves to sugar which unfortunately increases inflammation, drives anxiety and weight gain and can create an imbalance in your
I have never really considered myself a morning person. Before discovering Nutritional Medicine I woke up feeling so ridiculously tired EVERY morning that I would give absolutely anything for an extra hour in bed. These days, thanks to finding my Nutritional balance, I wake up often before my alarm, find it difficult to sleep in past 7am and actually look forward to going to bed early and waking up feeling refreshed. This year I even found myself glad when daylight savings ca
We all love Chia pudding, choc-chia pudding was my all time favourite... Until, following a very happy accident, I discovered SCN choc-chia-fudge! This recipe is so simple, so versitile and so indulgent I feel like I should actually trademark it before releasing it out in to the world. It's really so amazing that EVERYONE must know that I came up with it!.. I must get credit! But then the Buddhist-centred, nurturing, health care practitioner part of my brain takes over and I
On this beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon many of us are now preparing for the week ahead. Meals and ingredients to be chosen, grocery shopping to be done, planning ahead for another week of delicious healthy eating. In my quest to stay healthy I’ve often grumbled about the fact that lunch options are usually healthy or tasty - few places offer both but why? WHY IS IT SO HARD TO FIND A DECENT SERVE OF PROTEIN WITH A TASTY SIDE OF VEGETABLES FOR UNDER $20 IN SYDNEY? But wait...
I'm a big snacker and just love all things spicy and crunchy. As a Nutritionist I'm also a big fan of the magical healing properties of leafy green veggies (obviously). As I'm a big foodie and a lover of all things snacky, my diet plans are filled delicious snack options. I love to provide an exciting change from the traditional plain veggie sticks and include nut butters, choc avo mousse, fruit, berries, coconut treats - I really believe it's important to have a variety of
