Ditch the Microbeads


As with all things in doing better than yesterday, it's important to take things slow - most of the time. Here's one time that we must act fast. Pronto. Subbito. Arriba arriba. Vite. Schnell. Sugu ni. Jaldi Se... However we look at it, microbeads must go now.   image credit: People who've done my Low Tox e course are super well versed in the whole microbead palava already, but if you've not yet come across it, read on. These beans are tiny bits of plastic that … [Read more...]

Hey – You’ve got a new disease!

you've got a new disease!

There's something I want to clear up. An article about a 'new disease' has come into the lime light. Orthorexia Nervosa is the name. You can read here about it. Now, yes there are many eating disorders and yes, it is essential that people affected work with a practitioner for support and recovery, but my fear with this media coverage is that people are being made to think that we are 'being crazy' for insisting on a pure food source and opting to support a transparent and just food system at … [Read more...]

Lifting the lid on… fluoride

fluoride poster

Fluoride is a topic I discuss at length in my Low Tox Life e course  (coming up again Feb 26th) with the wonderful Holistic dentist and wellness educator Dr Ron Ehrlich and BMed Science, Naturopath, Clinical nutritionist and lecturer Tabitha McIntosh. Activist Erin Brockevich in the USA does a lot of work to raise awareness on fluoride in the water too. You can check a post out she wrote just today on the subject HERE. It just seems rather crazy to put a known neurotoxin into the drinking … [Read more...]

Winner winner chicken dinner


This is my 300th post. I started my blog in the first week of February 2012 so it's my 3rd blog anniversary and while I'm sure I could have come up with a super exciting dessert recipe or elaborate philosophical piece to mark such an occasion, instead it's a simple chicken dinner. I really like that in a way, because achievable low tox living is what I'm all about - whether it's in the kitchen, in your mind, on your skin or around your home. Real Food is easy. We've been convinced otherwise … [Read more...]

Fool proof chicken liver pate


Pâté has got to be one of the most nutrient dense and delicious things you can regularly enjoy. Personally I don't make it or eat it if I can't find organic, pasture raised for ethical reasons. The choice is yours but things to consider are... Why organic when it comes to chicken? Three reasons Free range is a loose term and can still mean heavy antibiotic use, cramped quarters and little time outside. Most chickens are fed grains with genetically modified corn and soy in their mix. Bad … [Read more...]

Luscious Raw Cheese Cake

Gluten free blueberry cheesecake

Start the year as you wish to continue. Shall we do that creatively, proactively and deliciously? They can all be summed up with this raw cheese cake. I feel like I've come really late to the party in putting one on the blog. I love them and make variations regularly, but am so excited to finally commit one to writing and share it. It's got big flavour. It is silky and creamy like a semi freddo or freshly made ice cream. I hope you enjoy it as we did for our New Year's eve dessert. We had a … [Read more...]
