Don’t get stuck… See every moment as new.

Don’t get stuck… 
See every moment as new.


Surrender everything and let go of what you think you know.  Thoughts get so set that the mind needs to be reopened to possibility every once in a while.  If you’re struggling to choose a path, feel stuck in the past or future or feel hopeless, surrender.

If you do not strive to create your own world, a whole world, you will get lost in other peoples.  
Surrender yourself to hope and dreams, possibility and madness.  Let go of what you think you know and keep your dreams burning bright.

Eating. Its such a basic instinct right? Such a physical and mental necessity? Why don’t we know how to eat then? The truth is, our relationship with food is a struggle - it always fluctuates. Nobody is eternally happy about the way they eat… there will be good days and there will be bad. Some…

As a nutritionist, I try to incorporate fruit and veg inconspicuously into daily meals and snacks.  Here are some of my favourite ways to have more fruit:

1. Breakky topper:  Keep a stash of frozen or fresh berries handy for your morning museli, porridge, yoghurt or even sweet bagle!

2. Baker’s delight:  This is for peaches, nectarines and mangos (see the picture above).  Cut the fruit into chunky slices and marinade in fruit juice and spices.  My FAVOURITE is baked peaches (I will post the recipe in my next blog post).  You can either bake or BBQ them so that they soak up all the flavours!!!  Delicious!

3.  Fruit salad, yummy yummy: Fruit always looks so appealing when combined together or spread out on a big plate.  Find a plate similar to the one in my pic and take to picnics/BBQs/family events.  Nobody can resist when it looks like eye (and tongue) candy!

4. Juice that:  Juice your favourite fruits together (with veg if you like) and consume with ice.  Try to drink within 15-20 minutes to preserve those lovely enzymes (and vitamins) which will slowly decline as the juice sits.

5.  Sweet and savoury:  Add fruit to your evening salads!  My favourite is radish and watermelon salad in summer!  It is sooooo refreshing.  I’ll post the recipe up soon!
