Attack On “Paleo Pete” Hits A New Low

by Leisa on August 30, 2015

I just read an article published in the Sydney Morning Herald, where the author admits to fantasising about Pete Evans contracting a life-threatening illness so that he can put his “food as medicine” beliefs to the test – I’m assuming so that he can fail (and die) so that the author will be vindicated in

Today as I was skimming the stories on the Mamamia website, I came across one that jumped out at me because it had the word “vegan” in it. Now Mamamia is well-known for being anti-natural medicine and seems to crusade against anyone who encourages people to live a healthier lifestyle – so I wasn’t expecting

“Paleo Pete” & Fad Diets

by Leisa on May 12, 2015

Last night on a program that I rarely waste time watching – A Current Affair – they had a story on Pete Evans and the Paleo Diet he endorses. I was expecting a completely nasty piece full of misinformation and totally destroying Pete’s character because he supports eating a healthy diet (OMG, how criminal of

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?

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
