As a Health Coach, Scott creates a supportive
environment that will enable you to achieve all of your health goals.
Scott has studied the major dietary theories and uses practical
lifestyle coaching methods to guide you in discovering which approach
works best for you.
Most approaches to nutrition dwell on calories, carbs,
fats, proteins. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and
bad foods, Scott coaches his clients to create a happy, healthy life in a
way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline.
No one diet works for everyone. Scott will guide you to
find the food and lifestyle choices that best support you. He will also
help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your
current and future health goals.
Scott practices a holistic approach to health and
wellness, which means that he looks at how all areas of your life are
connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to

Right now I'm feeling a sense of freedom and liberation around the changes taking place with my diet. At the same time I am also coming understand how powerful religious, political, social and cultural forces are in determining what we should eat.
I was bought up in New Zealand and post war was virtually force-fed dairy products in order to support the emerging dairy industry there. So too bread and wheat products to help get the South Island wheat industry up and running after WWII .As a consequence I experienced what I now look back on as horrible digestive issues which I know impacted on my ability to feel good. The right nutritional information wasn't getting through to my cellular system.
Now, quite some years later I might add, I am over the need to eat what is on offer via the supermarket or what is shown on TV or in the newspapers. I eat what I know my body loves and enjoys.
I am now enjoying pampering
myself and see creating food as part of my daily meditation where I can
offer thanks to the earth for all she has done and continues to do for
I want to show you some of what I have eaten in the last 24hrs - each morning anyway I start my day with a fruit/vege smoothie which includes some of the iLifeFoods dried VegeShot or VegeShot Smoothie Booster. I love little raw treats more and more. What I did the other night was an avocado creams with garden herbs et al on top of cucumber slices!!!. I like something special too as my main course - a Zuccipasta - raw zucchini pasta with a RAW tomato sauce with the same ingredients I used when I used to prepare a cooked tomato sauce. Finally I like to do a RAW sweet which is really quite different to a cooked sweet - this time a new twist on an oldie but a goodie - Coconut Kefir with cacao powder and strawberries topped off with coconut palm sugar - makes the old chocolate mousse look a tad tired doesn't it ?
Tropical Fruit Smoothie Avocado cream on sweet cucumber Zuccipasta with RAW tomato sauce
Tropical Fruit Smoothie : Blend a frozen banana with mango, paw paw (papaya) , pineapple, 1 sachet of VegeShot Smoothie Boost Serve garnished with a twist of kale.
Avocado Cream served on Sweet Lebanese Cucumber : 2 creamy avocados into a blender with the juice of a lime, handful of garden herbs -basil, majoram - pinch of sea salt . Blend and serve on slithers of cucumber and topped with a baby grape tomato and drizzle with macadamia oil and add a grind of pepper.
Zuccipasta with RAW Tomato Sauce: Firstly blend your sauce - 4 largish Roma tomatoes , large pinch of dried Italian herbs, glove of garlic, touch of red onion,fresh basil, 1 small red chilli, pinch of seasalt and ground pepper and small sprinkle of coconut palm sugar. Blend together until smooth and creamy. Set aside. take two largish zucchini or courgette and using a small Gefu Spirelli Spiral Cutter.This is a great little device into which you slide your courgette or zucchini or cucumber..it will also do a sweet potato if you clean and prepare it to fit neatly into the end.
I have some of these great little hand operated beauties coming so if you want to put your name down for one then just email me
I like to spend a moment giving some thought to how I can introduce a safe sweet finishing touch to my meals. Sometimes its dried fruit based and sometimes its something just a wee bit special - such as a beauty I created the other night .
Coconut Kefir with cacao powder and strawberries and topped with a sprinkle of coconut palm sugar. Put 6 strawberries in the blender along with several good dollops of the creamy kefir mixture, add a teaspoon of raw cacao powder and blend together until a smoothy creamy consistency. It turned out sensationally when served in a small liqueur glass and by the way you might care to add a drop or two of your fav liqueur into the mix to give it an added zing if you wish.
So what is Coconut Kefir I hear you ask ? Well its two 600ml cans of Organic coconut cream into an airtight jar into which you add one 'Natures Own' Kefir starter sachet. Stir it thoroughly and let it sit on the kitchen bench for a few days until it starts to go nice and sour and then put it into the fridge where it will solidify. This is the best stuff for helping to get new flora back into the tummy AND its not milk based.
Kefir has its origins in the middle east where the culture is added to cows and goats milk to create a form of cultured yogurt which helps in the process of digestion and maintaining stomach flora.
Raw food with a balance of fats, carbs and proteins and has been a transformational experience for me . I was a vegan for many years but was still taking some light protein from time to time like fish and chicken. When I dropped flesh of any kind I began to feel even better and more alert. Then when I began to just eat non cooked vegetables I found my energies and general state of body and mind slipped up another notch.
It is very simple to slot one's brain into gear around preparing raw food but for many its a difficult task when all that 'seems' to be on offer is the usual 3-dimensional food of meat and three veg and plenty out of a packet.
I can help you understand more about the RAW approach to life and living and teach you how to prepare the food you see on this page. I offer three day intensives built around my own lifestyle and using an Integrative Nutrition approach. I also offer nation wide - global wide - 3 and 6 month Health and Wellbeing programs and my very popular 4 hour 'RAW in the Kitchen' experiences based from my cottage in Doonan, 10 minutes South of Noosa, about 1.5 hrs north of Brisbane. If you would like more information please email me to find out more information and dates and times for classes. For the longer health programs I offer an initial FREE HEALTH ASSESSMENT.

What is it you are really needing in your life to satisfy an ‘physio-emotional’ need.
Look at the foods, deficits and behaviors in your life that are the underlying causes of your cravings. Many people view cravings as weakness, but really they are important messages meant to assist you in maintaining balance. When you experience a craving, deconstruct it. Ask yourself, what does my body want and why?
The eight primary causes of cravings are:
1. Lack of primary food. Being dissatisfied with a relationship or having an inappropriate exercise routine (too much, too little or the wrong type), being bored, stressed, uninspired by a job, or lacking a spiritual practice may all cause emotional eating.
2. Water. Lack of water can send the message that you are thirsty and on the verge of dehydration. Dehydration can manifest as a mild hunger, so the first thing to do when you get a craving is drink a full glass of water.
3.Yin/yang imbalance. Certain foods have more yin qualities (expansive) while other foods have more yang qualities (contractive).
4. Inside coming out. Often times, cravings come from foods that we have recently eaten, foods eaten by our ancestors, or foods from our childhood.
5. Seasons. Often the body craves foods that balance the elements of the season.
6. Lack of nutrients. If the body has inadequate nutrients, it will produce odd cravings.
7. Hormones. When women experience menstruation, pregnancy or menopause, fluctuating testosterone and estrogen levels may cause unique cravings.
8. De-evolution. When things are going extremely well, sometimes a self-sabotage syndrome happens. We crave foods that throw us off, thus creating more cravings to balance ourselves.
From an integrative nutrition stand point the emotional relationship we have with food can either allow us to be fully rounded and satisfied human beings or ‘ humans going no-where’.
Sometimes too we might need to replace lost minerals from our biosystem too. For-instance a need for magnesium might be a craving for chocolate but rather than going down that slippery slope why not go after raw nuts and seeds, legumes, fruits which will not only meet the need for mag but also satisfy any sugar craving as well.
Phosphorous, sulfur, iron and salt (NaCl) needs might send you off to coffee and tea yet a good and regular diet of chicken, beef, liver, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy, nuts, legumes along with seaweed, greens, black cherries might just be the answer. Without doubt food and emotions are linked.

did you last look at exactly what you were eating and what is
motivating you to eat? Are you being enticed by the colourful
advertising by the major supermarkets and perhaps choosing foods that
aren’t in your best interest?
There certainly is a lot of ‘food confusion’ existing
right now and in our busy life it is probably a good time to stop and
ask yourself some questions about food and your lifestyle..
•Can you eat out less and prepare more of your own food ?
•Can you be sharing more food in a 'sit-down' environment with friends or family?
•Are you eating to support your immediate and long-term health needs?
These may appear basic questions to some of you but for others this 'food confusion'exists.
Forinstance mainstream media does not promote an awareness around the need to take in a range of 'leafy green vegetables' daily.
whole idea of raw food, light on protein ie. less heavy red meats, pork
and cheeses, along with a mix of healthy grains ie. more wheat free!!
is abhorrent to mainstream media because of the need to continue to
support an industry and an agenda based food pyramid.
So its time now to step into your own 'food power' and maybe say 'enough is enough'!!!
Here are some great ways to become really empowered around your immediate and long term health.
Reach out and ask more questions of your friends and family, read more, sign up for food newsletters or online blogs.
When in doubt 'Google' for information which sits right for you.
Download the 80/20 Alkaline/Acid Food Chart at the bottom of the page.
Also consider spending a couple of hours either a Saturday or Sunday morning shopping at your local farmer's or producer markets
Food Focus: Greens
greens are some of the easiest and most beneficial vegetables to
incorporate into your daily routine. Densely packed with energy and
nutrients, they grow upward to the sky, absorbing the sun’s light while
producing oxygen. Members of this royal green family include kale,
collard greens, Swiss chard, mustard greens, arugula, dandelion greens,
broccoli rabe, watercress, beet greens, bok choy, green cabbage, spinach
and broccoli. Right now at your local farmers market crinkly leaf green
kale is available. In fact you might be interested in knowing that kale
is number 2 after garlic in the antioxidant stakes!!!
How do greens
benefit our bodies? They are very high in calcium, magnesium, iron,
potassium, phosphorous and zinc, and are a powerhouse for vitamins A, C,
E and K. They are crammed full of fibre, folic acid, chlorophyll and
many other micronutrients and phytochemicals. Their green colour is
because of chlorophyll levels - sometimes known as liquid sunshine.
traditional Asian medicine, the color green is related to the liver,
emotional stability and creativity. Greens aid in purifying the blood,
strengthening the immune system, improving liver, gall bladder and
kidney function, fighting depression, clearing congestion, improving
circulation and keeping your skin clear and blemish free.
greens are the vegetables most missing from the average diet, and now
you can learn how to prepare them. Start with the very simple recipe
below. Then each time you go to the market, pick up a new green to try.
Soon you’ll find your favorite greens and wonder how you ever lived

As the currant situation at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear reactors remains uncertain it is entirely conceivable that ‘fall-out’ will spread around the world via the multitude of ‘jet streams’ which traverse the planet daily.
Already small amounts of radiation is being detected in the United States. Some of this though may have been pre-existing and it is only the Fukushima ‘event’ which has people looking a little closer at the puddles in their back yards.
But all is not lost and no need for despair. Right now you can start to do things which strengthen the body’s defence mechanisms. There are ways to beat the ‘radiation bogy-man’ using 100% natural means!!
Lycopeneis derived from processed tomatoes and is shown very clearly in a range of clinical trials and research papers to be a major naturally occurring ‘bio-antiradiation’ agent.
Lycopene is by far the strongest antioxidant found in carotenoids. Its antioxidant effect is 100 times stronger than vitamin E and is highly regarded within scientific circles as an antioxidant capable of protecting the body from radiation – man made or solar based.
Lycopene’s affects are so good that doctors even suggest that supplements should not be used when a patient is being administered chemotherapy or radiation treatment to remove cancers from the body. The very ‘agent’, in a natural form, is suggested by traditional people as being disruptive to harsh radiation and chemotherapy cancer treatments. You make your own call on which direction you would like to go with that information.
However, there is a growing body of evidence that says lycopene supplements act as a positive precursor to helping the biosystem to remain strong in the face of high levels of radiation.
Ironically, one Japanese trial, suggests beyond doubt that Lycopene can limit the amount of damage occurred by radiotherapy treatment. Radiation is taken into the body either via the skin or ingested in food particles. Here is a link to that evidence.
When you read conclusions that read like this, it makes one feel very satisfied that there is yet another naturally occurring agent which we can look at either reintroducing or taking into our bodies in increasing levels:
“Thus, our result shows that pre-treatment with lycopene offers protection to normal lymphocytes against γ-radiation-induced cellular damage”
Not only is a lycopene supplement good for managing radiation issues it is also recognised for its ability to work on other issues facing the human body. Check this link out from a previously created story:
Australian based iLifeFoods, is the sole outlet for the AuraGold Farms brand of concentrated Lycopene crystals derived from 100% pesticide free Australian tomatoes. Designed to offer the user a single serve sachet, this natural antioxidant tomato based product has been laboratory tested and shown to contain 3,500mg of Lycopene per 1 kg - far greater than the stated 800mg. This assay was conducted by Southern Cross University’s Centre for Photochemistry and Pharmacology. The contents of a 10g sachet of tomato crystal is simply added to water and taken like a concentrated tomato juice but with the added boost in lycopene levels.
If you wish to buy the concentrated Lycopene now for immediate shipment please click on this link:
