After attending a Gut health seminar held by Pete Evans in Sydney at the end of January, I left feeling inspired and determined to improve my health and wellbeing.

I then started my journey to a healthier, happier me. Continue reading

EVENT: Being a Fat Adapted Athlete…


I am so super super excited to bring you this event (as part of Adelaide Paleo). This semester one of my subjects has been Sports Nutrition. We have lost half the class. It is not at all what we expected to be learning when studying sports nutrition at a natural therapy college, it is heavily dietetic based and not much is promoted in the way of real food or the alternative of being a fat adapted athlete, just lots of talk on carb loading and jelly babies….

I had been following Hayden via his instagram @irunonfat for some time and I reached out to ask more of his story and to see if he would be interested in sharing more with me and others who may be interested. I saw how committed Hayden was to this lifestyle and his successes with his athletic endeavours also so I was super excited when he said yes and when I heard more of his amazing story!!

I can’t wait for you all to hear it too!!!

Making them nourishing foods that they love to eat is one of my greatest joys. When they finish a plate of my food, my heart skips a beat. I know, I need to get a cat or something.

I have total hit and misses when it comes to creating foods that they love; my niece is sometimes a little hard to crack. She has been the ‘test child’ for many of my recipes and proceeds with caution when trying my creations. Continue reading
