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.

The is a growing demand for more empirical evidence that ‘naturally grown’ fruit and vegetables play a major role in healing the body of basic to chronic ailments.
Common sense tells us that when we eat right our body reacts positively but in the production of ‘concentrated nutrient’ products we cannot say that the beetroot for-instance aids in the healing of the body of cancers or other dis-ease known to bring about cellular degradation.
However we can direct you, the informed and conscious reader to studies which support the notion that ‘good natural food=good natural health’. I posted the following study findings some time ago but feel its worthy now to update and repost.
Here are the details which supports that beetroot IS GOOD for you!!
A study undertaken by Austrian academics supports the role beetroot can play as an anti-inflammatory when treating the affects of cancer.
The study entitled : In vitro Effects of Beet Root Juice on Stimulated and Unstimulated Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells attributed to :
1Christiana Winkler, 1Barbara Wirleitner, 1Katharina Schroecksnadel 2Harald Schennach and 1Dietmar Fuchs 1Division of Biological Chemistry, Biocentre, Innsbruck Medical University, Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of AIDS-Research, Innsbruck 2Central Institute of Blood Transfusion and Immunology, University Hospital.
Results of this study arrived at the following statement of conclusion:
Intake of fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants can reduce the incidence of cancer and coronary heart disease in humans. Exceptional antioxidant activity of beetroot extracts has been reported. Likewise in animal models, e.g., extracts of red beetroot Beta vulgaris var. rubra revealed significant tumour inhibitory effects. Red beetroot concentrate is universally permitted as a food ingredient. In this study, effects of a commercially available beetroot juice on freshly isolated human peripheral blood mononuclear cells stimulated with the mitogens phytohaemagglutinin and concanavalin A were investigated in vitro. Tryptophan degradation and neopterin formation were monitored in culture supernatants to determine effects of test substances on immunobiochemical pathways which both are induced by the pro-inflammatory cytokine interferon-g. Compared to unstimulated cells, the mitogens induced significant formation of neopterin and degradation of tryptophan which is reflected by increasing concentrations of kynurenine together with diminished tryptophan levels in supernatants. Addition of beetroot extracts significantly suppressed these mitogeninduced changes, e.g. the rate of neopterin production as well as tryptophan degradation was dosedependently suppressed.
Our data shows that beetroot extract is able to counteract pro-inflammatory cascades in peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Because inflammation is strongly involved in the development and progression of several clinical conditions including coronary heart disease and cancer, beneficial effect of beetroot extract may relate to this anti-inflammatory capacity.
An independent study undertaken in the US also showed the following in regards to the consumption of juice concentrates:
“In this study, using a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled design, of 117 healthy individuals, we showed that a fruit and vegetable concentrate resulted in an elevation in micronutrients (as measured by beta-carotene, vitamin C, and alpha-tocopherol) and reduced systemic inflammatory load,”wrote the researchers.
“Although the long-term implications of these findings are currently unknown, the close relationship between chronic inflammation and poor human health, suggests such a juice concentrate is a beneficial addition to the habitual diet in support of human health,” they added.
After 60 days of consuming the fruit and vegetable capsules, the researchers report a reduction in levels of Monocyte Chemotactic Protein-1 (MCP-1) of about 35 per cent, Macrophage Inflammatory Protein 1-beta (MIP-1b) of about 16 per cent, and Regulated upon Activation, Normal T cell Expressed and Secreted (RANTES) levels of about 21 per cent, compared with placebo.
“Systemic inflammatory load in humans is suppressed by consumption of two formulations of dried, encapsulated beetroot juice concentrate”

Australian based iLifeFoods.com has developed the VegeShot - Daily Wellness Drink containing beetroot, carrot, kale, mango and Australian Rain plum, itself a source of high levels of detectable anthocyanins also known to assist in reducing inflammation within the cellular structure.
While these overseas studies appear conclusive in their findings it is important to way up the benefits by adopting a regime of personal use which may support these findings.

Since posting a picture on the iLifeFoods FaceBookpage I have had numerous requests for the recipe of my famously delicious Spicy Pumpkin Soup.
OK..here is what you will need :
1 medium size pumpkin or the equivalent of a 1/8 slice of pumpkin per person cut into small pieces.
Macadamia oil (Olive will suffice)
1 large glove of garlic (chopped)
1 large onion (chopped)
1 Tablespoon of medium curry powder
¼ teaspoon mustard seeds
1 small red chilli
Sea salt for seasoning
Add the oil along with the aromatic condiments into a sauce pan and allow the onions to ‘sweat off’ (as they say on Master Chef). Then add the chopped pumpkin and allow to gently brown-off (my word) until you can get a nice ‘caramelly pumpkiny’ fragrance from the pot.
Add two glasses of water to leave about 4cm or an inch and a bit of pumpkin showing. Allow to simmer until the mixture thickens – normally about an hour or so. Once the pumpkin is cooked , taste and add sea salty as preferred.
Then place the cooled mixture into a blender or use a ‘bar mixed’ type blender to render the mixture to a thickish puree. Then finally plate –up , add some garlic chives to the top or coconut cream, as some one suggested and vola – you have a really tasty soup which might last a couple of nights if you don’t eat it all at once. I add a small amount of garden chives too!!
If you are bored of eating pumpkin soup, then freeze it and reheat at some later stage. I also add some of the soup to a puree of sweet potato too. Overall totally delish!!
Finally the superfood characteristics are:
The distinctive bright orange colour of pumpkin indicates it's an excellent source of that all-important antioxidant beta-carotene. Research shows that people who eat a diet rich in beta-carotene are less likely to develop certain cancers than those who fail to include beta-carotene-rich foods in their diet. Pumpkin also has another carotenoid, beta-cryptoxanthin, which may decrease the risk of lung cancer in smokers.

More sophisticated research
into chronic inflammation in the past 20-30 years has linked bodily inflammation
to obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular problems, osteoporosis, cognitive decline,
cancer and Alzheimer's. Inflammatory
responses are designed to stimulate the body's defence systems to battle and
recuperate infections and injuries.
Temporary swelling and
irritation can be side-effects of the process as the immune system invades
many people something has gone awry in the supposedly temporary inflammatory
response, leading to a more permanent form of inflammation that has been linked
to a host of other health issues.
'Chronic Inflammation' made the
front cover of Time magazine on February 23, 2004, as the famous weekly news
journal explored what it called at the time, "circumstantial" evidence
linking inflammation to a wider pool of ailments typically experienced by
middle-aged and mature aged people.
"This concept is so intriguing
because it suggests a new and possibly much simpler way of warding off disease.
Instead of different treatments for, say, heart disease, Alzheimer's and colon
cancer, there might be a single, inflammation-reducing remedy that would prevent
intake is almost always responsible for the presentation of an illness or
chronic biological imbalance leading to the possibility of bodily inflammation.
In short the immune system is struggling to deal with an out-of-control
biosystem - a bit like stabilisers on a ship working overtime to counterbalance
the sway of the vessel from one side to another. It's the same in the body as
the immune system works overtime to counterbalance inflammation as a result of
infections, parasites, fungus, moulds and other pathogens which have invaded the
research we have found that cherries, which enjoy a high media profile, have
beneficial effects on inflammation as well as arthritis. Researchers have
discovered the reason being that cherries have distinct anti-inflammatory
properties, as reported by The American Arthritis Foundation.
'Drinking tart cherry juice
mixed with water three times a day may be beneficial for some people with
arthritis. Cherries also contain varied antioxidants, including kaempferol and
quercetin. These compounds, particularly quercetin, may have anti-inflammatory
effects that are similar to those of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
(NSAIDs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen)'.
evidence links cherries to not only help ease the pain of arthritis and gout,
but also to reducing risk factors for heart disease, diabetes and certain
cancers. Cherries also contain melatonin, which has been found to help regulate
the body’s natural sleep patterns, aid with jet lag, prevent memory loss and
delay the aging process.
cherries contain anthocyanins. These were found to prevent free radical damage
and inhibit cyclooxygenase enzymes better than some anti-inflammatory drugs that
work as inhibitors. It also turns out that cherries contain flavonoids and
antioxidants that have a protective effect on the stomach. It seems that nature
has thought of everything. Researchers believe there's strong evidence to add
cherries to your daily diet. But these are not always available.

add water to the pure fruit crystals and you have a powerful combination of

Each year Americans drink the equivalent of nearly 600 cans of soda
(soft) drink each containing an average of ten, yes that’s 10, teaspoons
of refined white sugar.Similiar per capita data exists for Australia.
Every day the Coca Cola Company sells in excess of one billion cans
of soft drink on Planet Earth. Each can contains an average of ten
teaspoons of pure refined white sugar along with a range of other
nefarious chemicals, most shown to lead to premature death as a result
of numerous avoidable illnesses. (Put aside the affects of aluminium
mining for the moment)
Here is what happens to your body for a full 60 minutes after you
have consumed a can of Coca Cola. This is frightening so hold onto your
In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your
system. You don’t immediately
vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the
flavour allowing you to keep it down. 20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst.
Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on
into fat. (There’s plenty of that at this particular moment) 40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate,
your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar
into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now
blocked preventing drowsiness. 45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating
the pleasure centres of your brain. This is physically the same way
heroin works, by the way. 60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and
zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism.
This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also
increasing the urinary excretion of calcium. >60 Minutes: The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into
play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you’ll evacuate
the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that were headed to your bones
as well as sodium, electrolyte and water. >60 minutes: As the rave inside of you dies down you’ll start
to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You’ve
also now, literally, pee'd away all the water that was in the Coke. But
not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used
for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build
strong bones and teeth.
Let’s take a look at some of the other major components of a can of soft drink:
Phosphoric Acid: This can interfere with the body's ability to
utilise calcium, which may lead to osteoporosis ( and thinning of bone
density) and softening of the teeth.
Sugar: It is a proven fact sugar can increase insulin levels, which may
lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes,
weight gain, premature aging and other side effects. Most soft drinks
include over 100 percent of the RDA of sugar. Take the Ayurvedic
approach- a balance of sweet, sour and savoury. Suagr is also know to 'feed' the acidic needs of cancer related fungus and bacteria. Have cancer ?? Remove all high GI related sugars from your diet.
Aspartame: This chemical is used as a sugar substitute in diet soft
drinks. There are nearly 100 documented health side effects associated
with aspartame consumption including brain tumors, birth defects,
diabetes, emotional disorders and epilepsy/seizures.
Caffeine: Caffeinated drinks can cause jitters, insomnia, high blood
pressure, irregular heartbeat, elevated blood cholesterol levels,
vitamin and mineral depletion and may cause breast lumps, birth defects,
and perhaps some forms of cancer.
I see dozens of people each week, most looking for easily obtainable
solutions to health issues. My response comes from my Integrative Nutrition training ; find balance in diet and focus more on the
re-schooling the body’s gene nutrition with not only healthy ALKALINE
based foods but also concentrated antioxidant based Superfoods and drinks.
But I hope that Coke information scares the living day lights out of you.
Its time to come home to your pure and perfect self.

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.

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.
