Unhealthy Fixations

by Rhianna on February 10, 2015

The other day I popped into a local café to pick up a healthy lunch box. While deciding between a chicken and veggie stack and the sweet potato and chia patties, I over heard two young, super fit girls talking about carbs. One had ordered eggs on toast and was chatting to the chef about

What On Earth Is A Menstrual Cup?

by Rhianna on February 2, 2015

This is a blog that HAD to be written. My friend told me so. As we walked along the beach the other afternoon one of those taboo topics came up. I’m not sure how, or why, but we ended up talking about periods. There, I said the P-Word. Some men may want to look away

A Healthy Change In The Air

by Rhianna on January 30, 2015

Today I really wanted to write a blog about my new dentist. And I mean a happy blog, not a scary, horror story, set your teeth on edge blog. I just can’t stop telling people about him so decided to tell you too. He is a young dentist who works under the tag lines of

Alternative medicine is under the spotlight in Australia, with calls to end private health insurance rebates for any natural healing modalities – rebates that are partly subsidised by the government. Recently on the 7.30 program on the ABC, the story “Should alternative medicines have their government rebate cut?” highlighted a draft report showing no proof

Whole Food Disasters- Messing With Mother Nature

by Rhianna on January 27, 2015

I think most people have now heard of chia seeds. Even if you don’t eat them, you’ve probably seen them at the health food store, the supermarket, or appearing in foods like protein balls and breads. And many people know they are a ‘healthy’ food, even if exactly how or why they are healthy isn’t

Keeping Perspective

by Rhianna on January 22, 2015

If you read my last blog post, you’ll know that January for me is all about clean eating. Or at least that was what it was meant to be about. And hey, for that second week of January, I did an excellent job! Then the temperature hit the roof and I didn’t leave the house

No Resolutions 2015

by Rhianna on January 6, 2015

As you can see from the title, this is not a ‘Let’s Set New Year’s Resolutions’ blog. This year I simply can’t face resolutions, or the guilt I’ll feel on breaking them. So I’ve decided to change things up in 2015, do away with resolutions and focus on longer term goals instead! ‘Cause I know

Acceptable Versus Optimal

by Rhianna on December 17, 2014

Before we even get into today’s blog, I have a simple question for you. What would you prefer? Acceptable health, or optimal health? I can’t imagine a single person who would be happy with acceptable health when optimal health was on offer. So from that question, I would hazard a guess and say that in

Where Is The Food?

by Rhianna on December 12, 2014

Just a short rant…I mean blog post… today about some of the wacky ideas floating out there in the social media world. I don’t mean to pick on Health Coaches here, but I do follow quite a few on Instagram, and seriously, their ridiculous concept of nutrition often drives me batty! Today I’m talking about

How Full Is Your Cuddle Tank?

by Rhianna on November 20, 2014

As I opened the internet this morning I found my home page had decided to change from Google to MSN. I don’t know why this happens and I actually find it quite annoying, but before I could reset my page back to normal a featured story caught my eye. Apparently a woman in Portland, Oregon
