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

“Paleo Pete” & Fad Diets

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

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

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.

Accidentally Organic

by Rhianna on October 24, 2014

I know I always go on about how eating organic is better for your health, or if not 100% organic, then following the guidelines of the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 (12 foods you should never eat commercially grown and 15 foods that are fine from the supermarket!). I’m always talking about the higher nutrient
