Relaxing with Myrtle the turtle and my @whandfmag tonight. Kids are screaming at me and I DONT CARE! 😂really enjoyed the article by @keeganthornhill_wbffpro it just confirms everything the boss @jesswilliams_coach has me doing. Think I might focus more on gut health though to maximise results. Anyone got any suggestions other than kraut? Does gut health make a difference to your training and results? #over40bikinicompetitor#bikiniprep#bikinicompetitor#whandfmag#guthealth#shreditfitness
🍎TEACHERS: are you back to school ready? Here’s some tools that should be in every teacher’s tool belt to keep you healthy and energized ALL school year long! • X-FactorPLUS: multivitamin • ProBio5: 5 strains of probiotics along with enzymes that breakdown yeast overgrowth • VitalBiome: 8 strains of probiotics that help decrease stress & anxiety! • Edge: gives you natural, sustained energy 💥Add in the #PinkDrink and you’ll even have energy at the end of the day to grade all those papers! 💥
Seriously, what teacher couldn’t use all of the above to help make the upcoming school year as healthy and stress free as possible? #guthealth#immunesystem#sustainedeneregy#teachers#BackToSchoolDefense#youwillthankme ❤
One of my all time go to do things for over all wellbeing and detoxification is an infrared sauna @theorchardprahran - I have at least 3 sessions a week along with drinking my daily ACV. I can not remember the last time I was sick😱😷 winter in Melbourne bring it on! ☃️❄️💥
Did you know that eating the colours of the rainbow maximises the mitochondria, brain and gut health. Look for colour, think : berries, beetroot, orange and plums. Rich in antioxidants, antibacterial benefits, boosts the immune system, reproductive and vascular health 🙌🏻
I've never been good at cooking for one (which is probably why I love throwing a good dinner party!😜) My solution: I always cook double at dinner and take the rest for lunch. I'm not sure why I struggle just doing 'one' 🤔 Maybe it is because I grew up in a big family and good food, cooking for each other and eating together was a big deal. Our eating patterns are often influenced by our environments and the people in them. What patterns have you picked up over the years? How do you manage them? Being aware of HOW we eat is just as important as WHAT we eat 🙂
How much do you like fish 🐟?
This one is great to help you lose body fat ->
Just like salmon, halibut provides a nice dose of cortisol-lowering and inflammation-fighting omega-3 fats, but it’s higher in protein😊. A serving has a whopping 30 grams of protein and all the essential amino acids to maximally stimulate protein synthesis for a better metabolism throughout the day 👌🏼!
Halibut is high in magnesium, which fights stress and helps calm you down..In addition, it’s rich in B vitamins, which are necessary for speedy elimination of waste products from the body for less inflammation.
👉🏼Other beneficial nutrients of halibut include niacin, the antioxidants selenium, potassium, and phosphorus ✅.
❌Avoid: Tilapia (or any fish) From China
Just because I can - here's one more shot of the delicious Macadamia Cream Cheese I've been loving for Breakfast this last week - check out the recipe in my previous post or at the link in my profile :) Recipe by @thefodmapfriendlyvegan
HEALTHY WRAP - a great option to get a variety of fresh and healthy ingredients into us for lunch. Kids love them too and wraps a great way to get creative... the perfect variation on the boring sandwich.
Today my Kombucha has been fermenting for a week. It was quite warm, even though humid and rainy. Tastes a bit like cider or fruity wine. Very happy. I'll leave it another day or two. Also look at that big baby on top (not the curious cat). 😄
I seriously can't get enough of these purple gems!
If they aren't a staple in your diet, they should be! The reason?
Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). Beets also contain the B vitamin folate, which helps reduce the risk of birth defects!
If you love beets as much as I do, let me know how you love to enjoy them!
Did you know?!
Most Australians eat only about half the recommended quantity of fruit. However many of us drink far too much fruit juice which is high in energy and low in dietary fibre. Whole fruits are a much better choice, and are more filling.
It is recommended that we eat 2 serves of fruit per day. A standard serve is about 150g or:
✅1 medium apple, banana, orange or pear
✅2 small apricots, kiwi fruits or plums
✅1 cup diced or canned fruit (no added sugar)
Or only occasionally:
✅125ml (½ cup) fruit juice (no added sugar)
✅30g dried fruit (for example, 4 dried apricot halves, 1½ tablespoons of sultanas)
Choosing fruits in season provides better value and better quality and also adds more variety to your diet throughout the year. And just like with veggies, choosing different coloured fruits increases the variety of nutrients, which can enhance your health!

Asian inspired green tea soba noodle bowl and as featured here with smoked salmon as an extra!
Definitely a popular bowl with extra gut health support from our homemade kimchi to keep the gut flora happy and flourishing 🌼
KOMBUCHA GOODNESS ON WELLNESS WEDNESDAY! My hubby came across this yummy @remedykombucha drink, and it's so crazy delicious I wanted to share. We usually try to be healthy and limit soft drinks and only drink water with our meals... but sometimes we feel like something fizzy 😜.
This sparkling drink hits the spot and I don't feel guilty because the healthy living bacteria makes my gut happy 😀. It's low in sugar too which is a bonus. Win win all around.
Kombucha is nothing new, it's been around for thousands of years... The live cultured drink has so many benefits which I am sure you are well aware of: improving digestion, weight loss, increased energy and immune support etc.
At $4-$5 a bottle it's quite an expensive beverage to have daily. We make kefir at home, so not sure if we can commit to making kombucha too.
QUESTION: Have you tried these? If so, what's your favourite flavour? Does anyone make their own kombucha?
‘High intake of dietary fibre is inversely associated with decreased colorectal cancer risk.’ (Chan D, et. al., 2011) 🙌🏽
Housemate of the week! ⭐️ Found a little bit of spare time to whip this lovely up. Banana bread.🍌 I just used a generic banana bread recipe and modified it with a sprinkle of almonds, raspberries, chia seeds on top. And to keep our fibre intake up I used wholemeal flour. The almonds and chia seeds are because I love the taste they add, but they are also a source of fibre and healthy fats.
Fibre is important for our gut health because it is associated with a decreased risk of cancer of the last parts of our intestines, the colon and rectum. This is because fibre helps keep our stools at the right consistency and provides the right ‘food’ to help the bacteria that live in our gut function well. These little guys are our friend and we need to give them a bit of love, and they love fibre. 💃🏼 Stay tuned for our up and coming website for a bit more on fibre!

Eat the rainbow 😏
Thanks to @alterecopacific for the most delectable care package stuffed to the brim with their #organic#fairtrade chocolates 🍫 I'll be collaborating with them on an exciting recipe, which I can't wait to get to you all!
In the mean time I'll just have to tuck into a few rows and watch BACHIE 😍
Still working the #guthealth . Looking for a switch from eggs, so I went for organic cashew milk (only nondairy milk I could find without stabilizers or additives), blueberries, strawberries, walnuts, dates, and a superfood powder I found at the foodstore. Delicious, but I suspect I'll be hungry again soon. 😋 🍓
Fiery eggs on rye this morning. The Red One, our take on Kimchi is bursting with flavour and goodness. I hadn't any for a couple of days and the clip top lid on my @leparfaitworldwide jar almost blew off, there is so much live probiotic activity in there. Mastermind @heshdee cuts the daikon nice and thick so you get a whole heap of different textures as well as flavours. Coming soon to a cafe or store near you (UK)
