3 Things My Gut Is Loving , To Maintain and Repair Your Gut.

  There are tons of gut healing supplements out on the market and some can be expensive and you have no idea if they are going to work or not, which can be frustrating. Or they are obscure and you have to travel to the other side of the earth to find them. I’m all about simplicity otherwise you will never use these amazing gut healing supplements and foods on a daily basis. I have struggled with my gut health for years now and have wasted a ton of money of stuff that doesn't work and also seen great results with others. These 3 dietary items are what i consume daily as preventative and protective measures. It takes time to heal your gut and I have healed and also slipped back into bad habits in the past which forced me to get really good at implementing preventative foods and supplements into my diet daily for general maintenance. I have tried and made errors and have had plenty of practice healing my gut. 3 things I have seen great results with are: Chia seeds Psyllium Husks L-Glutamine   Chia seed pudding :  Mix 1 Tbs chia seeds to ½ cup of non dairy milk (preferably almond or coconut) whisk for...

The Only Kitchen Appliance You Need.

So as you can see having a blender has been the most used appliance in my house. I friggin love it and i use it every morning and most nights!! I personally have 2 horse powers mixing up my smoothies meaning it’s a “fast speed blender” it is an Optimum 9400 and has been fantastic, I could not live without it. It has a 10 yr warranty, so although it might seem expensive you are fully covered with confidence. I make sauces such as bolognese sauce for my sudo zucchetti. I make pesto and add kale for added nutrients. You can make nut butters and mayo… dressings… banana icecream. Vegan icecreams, nut milks, dips and bullettproof coffee. I love a good curry but found that they were loaded with vegetable oil so took the ingredients list from store bought curry pastes and made them myself out of fresh herbs and spices (minus the additives and nasty stuff). With a blender it is easy to make your food from scratch to avoid all the additives and i have not had to buy packets and store bought sauces and jars for many years all because i can do them in my blender. Hopefully you will give...

3 Gut Healing Breakfast Ideas That Will Have You Welcoming Wellness In No Time

Are you sick and tired of waking up in a daze? Longing to figure out how to cram all the advice you are given into your day? I used to try new things everyday and wonder why nothing was working. Finding your groove is so important to welcoming wellness as it is something that needs to be worked at daily. For most people (you included) the beginning of the day before work is the only part you can be in control of. You know when you need to leave for work so you know how much time it takes to woof down breakfast and get out the door quick smart. Some of the most successful people in the world, be it athletes, business tycoons, presidents cultivate success through a sound and ritualistic morning routine. Health guru’s also opt for a routine that paves the way for a healthy day. I know if I start the day out right, both in diet and mindset I know I am in control of my day (not the other way around) so getting in a healthy breakfast or a breakfast that is both anti-inflammatory and gut healing is THE best way to start the day...

Smoothies2
Gut Soothing Smoothies

If you are anything like me after the xmas festivities are over, I'm craving the sweet stuff (because of the extra indulging over the holidays) but also I tend to drink way more alcohol because there are heaps more occasions to do so. Craving wine of an evening is a way I tend to 'hang on' to the holiday vibes… even though I’m back at work. The indulging needs to stop at some stage because it can be damaging to your gut if you have had issues in the past (like me) or if you are going through some gut issues. Getting back on track as quick as possible is super important. Smoothies are a great breakfast, morning tea or afternoon snack because you can load them with amazing gut healing superfoods and supplements to help heal and seal your gut quick-stat, because they are ‘blended’ the food is already partially broken down making the process easier on your digestion. Below I have some of my all-time summer favourites to help with the mid-morning hunger or the 3:30 cravings. They are designed to have a hint of sweetness to satisfy the sweet tooth but also loaded with fiber and veg to keep you regular...

Guilty Of Eating On The Go?

Are you a stressed eater? I am guilty… Do you eat lunch at work? Do you shovel down your food at your desk in front of the computer? Or do you down a quick meal in front of the tv at night? Do you find yourself bloated or struggling with some digestive issues? Could it be as simple as eating in a less stressful environment? I used to spend lunch with my computer… and eat when I could. NOW I make time to sit out in the sun (when I can), put my phone down and take my 30 min break, eating, breathing and enjoying my food. I really look forward to my lunch breaks now because I have turned them into a ritual that helps me de-stress and recharge my batteries during the day. I get rather upset if I get disturbed during my break because you don’t come between me and my food haha, but mostly I enjoy this short break to chill out. When I decided to stop taking the contraception pill my anxiety was out of control so I was looking at ways to improve my day and take time out to attempt meditation. By actually taking 30 mins away from my...
