Food, Health / 12.12.2017

These days I am a big believer in not restricting your body from the foods it's crying out for. I use to be so rigid & strict in my diet, cutting out all fats & only eating mostly raw produce. I truly believed that that was what constituted a "healthy" lifestyle. I'm serious - I even refused to season with Himalayan Rock Salt. By no means did I starve myself. I fasted, however the goal was not shrouded in food refusal or self-harm (in this chapter of my...

The last couple of days have marked my newfound love affair with "The Kraut" - I'm completely converted & just can't get enough of @foleysfrothingfermentations "Raw Sauerkraut". I eat it as a side dish, or on top of my homemade @hempfoodsaustralia crackers. I've slowly been introducing this classic blend to my meals & I'm so relieved by how comforting it is for my precious gut! I am finding my digestive system is responding with open arms.

I literally found myself curled up on the ground in the foetal position in utter agony. My attempts to self-soothe met on deaf ears. But lo...

This moment right now, when the sky is bathed in golden sunlight is my favourite time of the evening. It makes me feel like I'm in my mothers womb being cradled in honey. I've spent the last couple hours starring outside my window - blinds pulled back to ensure the room was filled with enough light to spill in & wash over me. Today my gut has been roaring - gurgling - groaning - growing & just hell bent on wrecking havoc. I've been experiencing an emotional upheaval. This...

"Semplice e Delizioso!" In other words, what this girl needs when dinner time comes a knocking is a simple, delicious home style meal. No fancy bells or whistles - just heart. And nothing beats "Spada con Verdura" made from scratch in nonna's kitchen. Clean & nourishing food handled with such integrity - utter perfection. But it was missing something tonight. Intuitively I could sense my body was crying out for some fattiness to soak up the leanness of the fish. And who better to come to the rescue then...
