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
overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising?

your health as a whole.

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.

function and eating food which promotes LIFE!!
By Scott Mathias – Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and Founder of iLifeFoods.com
Dense rich nutrients are not necessarily a good thing. They will confuse the ‘digestive brain’. After all food is just nutritional data programmed by nature to release to the body certain nutrients which it requires in order to maintain and sustain life.
Over-burden the gut with too much ‘data’ and it just will not recognise the value or worth of certain foods and excrete it right out the other end. Not only is this a waste of energy on the body’s behalf, it’s a total waste of money on your behalf. So too the carbon excesses which arise from wasted nutrients.
Take a look at the ingredient list of this un-named American superfood (read super-confused) product which contains nearly 100 ingredients, enzymes or derivatives. This is gut blowing stuff!!
Orac-Intense Fruits & Berries: Juice and whole powders from: Acai, GojilWolfberry, Noni, Mangosteen, Blackberry, Blueberry, Bilberry, Elderberry, Cranberry, Raspberry, Black Currant, Pomegranate, Strawberry, Hawthorne Berry, Papaya, Acerola Cherry, Peach, Pineapple, Cherry, Orange, Lemon and Prune in a base of Apple, Purple Grape, Pear and Banana.
Nutrient-Dense Vegetable & Green Blend: Juice and whole powders from: Carrot, Beet, Barley Leaf, Alfalfa Leaf, Sweet Potato, Spinach, Asparagus, Brussels Sprout, Kale, Cauliflower, Dunaliella Salina, Broccoli, Cucumber, Celery, Bell Pepper, Wheat Leaf, Oat Leaf, Klamath Lake Algae, Spirulina, Chlorella, Kelp, Dulse, Cabbage, Tomato, Squash, and Parsley.
Seeds Plus: Chia Seed, Flax Seed, Pumpkin Seed, Brown Rice, Aloe Vera, SOD (superoxide dismutase) and Yucca.
..and the list goes on to well over 100 single or derived ingredients…
The ingredients may sound quite fashionable and one might become quite excited by this veritable cocktail of goodies, but guess what? This ingredient list is like giving your laptop 100 commands at once and we know what would happen should this occur. The lap top freezes because it cannot sequentially process each command in a manner that enables you to get to .doc A or .doc B or file or folder X or Y, fast. Same happens in the gut. Over command and the gut goes into a state of ‘freeze’. It stops processing and instantly wants to ‘abort’ the nutritional commands you have over burdened it with and it starts to dump data as quickly as possible, right out of your bowel.
So my advice: ‘Simple is sound and self serving’. Eat also local foods which have been handled very little. That’s why buying from a farmers markets is a must nowadays.
Also take a look at a very ‘SIMPLE and SELF SERVING’ Australian SuperFood which is far from confused. The Australian Rain Plum is one of the ‘Princes of Australian functional foods’. It’s a red, ‘Pure red and only red’. Crystallised powder is derived from the Plum widely recognised for its health giving qualities.
The iLifeFoods AuraGold Farms Australian Rain Plum is the only brand of it’s kind which matches and in some nutritional categories, exceeds, the mass media versions of Acai and Goji Berry and a recently released product from the ‘already under pressure Amazon Basin ecosystem, the Incaberry. Ok tongue in cheek but recent media suggested locals had been eating this for centuries. Well the Australian Rain Plum, or Ooray as it is known to local Aborigines, dates back tens of thousands of years, one of the oldest botanical genesis in Australia. It formed part of the nutritional intake of the Widjabul people who roamed around the back of ByronBay in Australia’s Northern New South Wales.
The Rain Plum contains a staggering 8220mg/100g of the antioxidant Anthocyanin not to mention an array of other very powerful vitamins and minerals.
You can buy ‘Simple and Self Serving’ now with just ONE, yes ONE valuable ingredient; Australian Rain Plum. In fact when we undertook studies of the attributes of this Australian Superfruit the consulting scientist described the results as ‘extraordinary’– more than 10X the Anthocyanin normally found in a Blueberry.
You may buy this amazing Australian Superfood now for use on its own, mixed with juices or added to smoothies or food.
The big difference between this SuperFood and others is YOU know where it comes from – here it is either wild harvested in a sustainably managed environment or orchard grown.
It is only sold online or through farmers markets on the South East of Queensland, Australia.
We know where this comes from and we know what it can do. We can’t tell you everything but I use it daily and dozens of our customers swear by it : OMG !!!

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.

and Rain Plum single serve sachet fruit crystals come jammed packed with goodies
including the extra boost from the enzymes and antioxidants in the plum. Simply
add water to the pure fruit crystals and you have a powerful combination of
Cherry and Rain Plum juice.

I have always maintained that what ever is growing from season to season in your back yard IS FOOD!! It doesn’t have to been on four legs or come out of a building fitted with automatic doors- your back yard is a hive of nutritional industry – all year round.
Several AMAZING food sources grow in mine. Emerging as a weed, I dutifully removed them and dispatched as fast as I could. Then I began to take a closer look. The first is Wild Amaranth which usually turns up early summer or when you don’t plant anything in a patch of garden – so basically anytime, especially if one lives where the weather is a little warmer year round.
Wild Amaranth- High in protein and nutritious
Because it is here to help and assist in our healing process and FEED us, its loves to grow around humans. It will often appear in farmers paddocks after a harvest. Amaranth owes its origins to the ancient Aztec civilisation in Central and South America. It’s very high in protein and jam packed with nutrients from its seeds and leaves.
Farmers world wide despise Amaranth. It is often called by the rather unfortunate name of ‘Pig Weed’. Whilst it is generally cultivate for its seed it is really not a grain. It is more like a ‘seeding spinach’. Quinoa is probably its nearest relative.
The dark seeds from wild Amaranth can be quite hard and sand like but the greens are totally edible and best used in salads or stir fries. Their lighter well bred and cultivated cousins possess a lighter seed suitable for simmering for both savoury and sweet use, as well as flour in breads.These can be obtained from a health food shop. However with a bit of local research you can find the lighter seed bearing variety-sow them and expect a crop season to season. Just one seed has the ability to produce up to 2 kilograms of usable seeds.
An amazing weed indeed!!

The first pre-requisite is a good quality, solid and well powered blender or as I know it, a vitamiser!! This one was purchased from Aldi recently for less than $30 but it is the best and most efficient I have ever used.
My research is showing that many people will not make time in their morning's to reactivate the 'nutritional chi' of the body and support its needs to eliminate and begin the energy and nutritional absorption process again.
Smoothies are a wonderful way to nourish the body with a range of goodies - AND if needs be they can be prepared the night before and placed in the fridge with a piece of cling wrap over the top. Ideally though its better to prepare smoothies and drink on the spot, then oxidisation is lessened and the bio-energy levels are retained.
In the picture sequence shown I have simply chopped a range of fresh fruit into the blender. This morning it was: A frozen banana Chopped pineapple Handful of stoned cherries Chopped peach and nectarine Some Rain Plum juice A VegeShot (beetroot, carrot,kale, Rain Plum and mango) and I had some Wild Cherry and Rain Plum
You may actually put what ever your body feels it might like in a smoothie BUT the emphasis is on your body NOT your mind, which may well ask for some sugary substance to be added to your smoothies, when infact it is not needed. By crowding out sugary substances with naturally occurring sweet foods, such as fruit, your mind will begin to relinquish the desire to take refined sugars and thus the body's cravings will diminish.
Try it and you might be pleasantly surprised.
Easy as 1-2-3 !!
