Hey Gorgeous,
Gestational diabetes. You’ve probably heard of it. Maybe your sister got it. Maybe your neighbour.

This is the most common complication during pregnancy, and it’s time we understood it.

The Metabolism Lover- Ginger Carrot Soup

By |February 22nd, 2017|

 

It can be so uncomfortable deciding what to eat when you are confused about what is healthy! I know, I used to be so confused, I used to listen to “experts” who didn’t have well-functioning metabolisms when I was trying to lose weight, I prayed they were right but I didn’t get the results […]

Are Vitamin D Supplements the Secret to Weight Loss?

By |January 27th, 2017|

Hey Gorgeous,
Many scientific reviews continue to praise vitamin D as a miracle cure.
And it’s a reasonable conclusion to draw, given that most of our tissue (including in our brain) holds vitamin D receptors. 
The sunny little vitamin could be responsible for regulating as many as 2,000 genes, too. Just 24 hours of exposure to it […]

By |January 12th, 2017|

Hey Healthy Hotties!
If you’ve been following my recipes you’ll know that I enjoy occasionally incorporating legumes into them. Lentils, chickpeas, beans and more—they’re so full of nutrients and maybe even linked to prevention of chronic diseases. What’s not to love?
Most people boil their legumes, but that’s not the only way. Sprouting is becoming more and […]

Worried about Ruining your Child’s Appetite with Snacking? Here’s Why you Don’t Need to

By |January 12th, 2017|

Hey Plant-Based Mamas and Papas!
Raisins (and other dried fruits) seem like such a healthy snack for kids. Sweet, tasty, and natural…
…but are they really a good choice to give our children?
After all, dried fruit is higher in calories/serving than fresh, and that might lead to weight gain.
For adults, the effects seem neutral. Adding a […]

Worried about Getting Enough Omega 3s? Don’t—you don’t need them.

By |December 23rd, 2016|

Hey There, Wild Ones!
I’ve told you before that the very first week I went vegetarian, I began heavily supplementing.
After all, I had to get in all the nutrients that the doctors and so-called specialists said an 11-year-old vegetarian could never get from her diet.
I took a handful of supplements every single day, and one of […]

Water makes everything better. Seriously. Proper hydration is likely connected to lower risk of heart disease and cancer. Researchers even found that it may make kissing more fun, since it increases our lips’ sensitivity.
Pretty sweet, hey?
No wonder, then, that water is also the most important nutrient in our diet.

Want to Lose Weight? Eat Smarter!

Hey beauties!
We’ve probably all noticed that plant-based humans (vegans) tend to be slimmer and in better overall health than the average Aussie, and yet there continues to be this common misconception that veggie diets must somehow be lacking in needed nutrients.
Can we finally clear up that confusion, please?

The Milk Myth: Why Milk doesn’t Make Us Strong

Hi, Wild Ones!
Got milk?
We’ve all been hearing that question for decades. Milk and strong bones are practically synonymous at this point! But is it true?
A review of the most intensive studies on milk consumption and hip fracture risk found…no link. So that’s one myth debunked already. What about milk and bone building in adolescents? That’s exactly […]

Wanna Go Paleo? Read This First

By |December 20th, 2016|

Hey, Wild Things!
Everyone is talking about the paleo diet these days, hey?
A big part of the argument for this low-carb, high-protein diet has to do with insulin. Carbohydrates, the reasoning goes, increase insulin, which is one of the worst things for our health.
Well…they got one thing right, I guess. Insulin spikes can be really dangerous […]

How do you Like your Eggs? (Hint: you don’t!)

Hi, Compassionate Ones!
We’ve talked about the egg industry before, you may remember.
Now, the horrendous conditions endured by layer hens are enough to turn a compassionate heart off eggs for life—but they’re not the only reason to give a thumbs down to sunny side up.
Eggs (and especially egg yolks) are the biggest source of cholesterol in the […]

If Fructose is Bad for Me, Why is Fruit Okay?

Yep, fruit—nature’s beautiful, natural source of fructose—do we need to worry about that too? 
In short, no! And I’ll tell you why…

Why Your Diet Didn’t Work
