Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food. My food approach is all about awakening a carefree, happier, healthier you whilst reducing inflammation and toxins in the body.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. I love wholesome, natural food. Heaps of vegetables, healthy fats, eggs, nuts, organic meat, fish and some low GI fruits as a treat.

It’s about keeping things simple but using these food groups in a fun, creative way to nourish and support your body. No fads, no myths, no preservatives. Just real food, the way nature intended.

The toasted pine nuts add ...

Keto Golden Turmeric Iced Latte

A summer twist on an anti-inflammatory classic. It always make me laugh why a golden milk latte is called a latte because it doesn’t contain any coffee!
