Cheezy omelette 

This is a fabulous balance of protein, healthy fats & carbs. This simple gluten-free, dairy-free vegetarian dish, that should start your day on a good note. I wasn't a big egg eater until I saw a Naturopath in July 2015 who suggested I add more to my diet, due to being a lazy pescetarian (I … Continue reading Cheezy omelette

2 months gluten-free & dairy-free

Well a full 2 months has passed since I ditched gluten & dairy from my diet in the hopes of clearing up my skin. My skin is not better but I feel that it has been a really great learning curve in many ways. I have expanded my repertoire in the kitchen & have dined … Continue reading 2 months gluten-free & dairy-free

Follow your gut – in every sense

The last month has been a combination of events that will change my life forever for the best! I don't like to glorify busy but I guess you could say that's what my life is like - a (weekday) single mum of 2 boys, I work 3 days a week, study through IIN, & play … Continue reading Follow your gut – in every sense

Third week | elimination diet

It is totally unlike me not to eat when I can't decide what I want. In fact, normally it is the opposite - I usually eat EVERYTHING in sight when I can't decide on one item. In my defence, we do not have any sugary, processed foods in our house. I just don't buy them. … Continue reading Third week | elimination diet

Second week | elimination diet

I'm kick starting the week with excitement & trepidation. I have officially started my course through IIN. My 4 year old has major anger management issues - when he is angry he will utilise anything in his reach as a weapon: on Monday alone: all the magnets pulled off the fridge, a ball thrown in the … Continue reading Second week | elimination diet

Elimination diet | the weekend

I find the weekend harder to avoid certain foods, as we are often out & tend to grab something on the go.  Saturday morning we braved the fog & cold & went to our local markets. I am trying to move from soy milk to almond milk but they had run out so I compromised … Continue reading Elimination diet | the weekend

Day 7

I am not one to stare at myself in the mirror in the mornings but my skin has been looking substantially better each morning for the last 5 days & it makes me happy. Amazing how something so simple can make us so appreciative about our health. Dermatologist: No wonder we are all so confused. … Continue reading Day 7
