Is This Food Good or Bad?

by Leisa on October 16, 2010

This is the question I get asked most often at the retreats, and there is no one set answer to most queries. One of the understandings I have developed over the years, after talking with thousands of people about their health, is that the overwhelming majority of people want to be healthy, but without becoming a raw

Even though I don’t buy into the whole gimmicky, hyped “Law of Attraction” philosophy – (I don’t personally believe that we are totally omnipotent – I believe we have a great influence over our lives, but I also believe that there are factors beyond our control, stemming from universal consciousness that may have an impact on us),

When I was in Sydney for the Dr Sherrill Sellman tour, I caught up with the “angel in disguise” Julie from Conscious Choice.  She was the host organiser for the Sydney leg of the tour and lucky me, I managed to taste some amazing recipes of Julie’s while I was there.  If you get the

Warming Winter Juice

by Leisa on July 17, 2010

I found this great article on raw food combining whilst surfing the net – something I do a lot of!  I’ve played around a lot with food combining over the years – the very first experiment I made when I was 15 years old, was changing to a raw food and food combining diet. Over

What upsets me even more is

Out of all the different types of fruits available, some of my favourites are the berries – all types – strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, mulberries, cranberries, goji berries, acai berries,  and my all time number one out of all of them – raspberries.

Remember To Rotate Your Greens!

by Leisa on June 28, 2010

I’m a big advocate of Green Smoothies, – I like to have one nearly every day and I regularly recommend them to people – however I always make sure I caution everyone to make sure they rotate their greens. By this, I mean don’t use the same type of green every time.  It is easy to get into
