For all the chocolate biscuit lovers.

choculence_everyday_awakenings_leda_nutrition

Who loves a chocolate biscuit? Me, Me, Me !!! Now I love a biscuit dunked in my tea, but I haven’t bought mainstream biscuit brands for a while now. Many of them have contained palm oil or vegetable oils and super high levels of sugar which I try to avoid, and frankly ingredient labels on biscuits have SO many ingredients with codes and numbers, at times it’s too overwhelming for me to work out is it healthy or not. So I try…

My relationship with my body has changed. I used to consider it as a servant who should obey, function, give pleasure. In sickness, you realise that you are not the boss. It is the other way around. / Federico Fellini /

How many of us have experienced this? We push our bodies to their limits. We think we are indestructible. We think we are eternal. The reality is that our bodies can only take so much. Drinking, smoking, poor food choices, stress, exposure to toxins, strenuous physical activity, lack of sleep…these all contribute to our bodies eventually screaming out. “STOP” Much like Federico Fellini, my relationship with my body has changed. I have absolutely pushed my body beyond it’s limits, and…

Pills – love them or hate them?

I have a love hate relationship with pills. I recall coming home after my gall bladder operation and I felt excruciating pain like nothing before and all I needed was for it go away, so I could rest and recover. The problem was that by taking the painkillers I was in minimal pain; however, I was hallucinating and couldn’t sleep as a side effect. I stopped taking them after 8 days of no sleep (plus I had started seeing some…

Free range vs caged eggs

Sundays are for a free-range eggy brekky. 🍳 If you try non-free range eggs and compare eggs from chickens raised in a backyard or farm which free roam, you’ll notice in the free range option: The colour of the yolk will be a vibrant yellow rather than a pale yellow, the taste will be incredible as opposed to bland, and you will know they are better for you as they are fed food scraps, are allowed to free roam to eat…

Andalou Naturals Hairspray

Are you like me and need to tame that frizz and keep your locks well under control? It’s been the story of my life. Flyaways, frizz… I’ve been dealing with it for years. And I have gone through a lot of hairspray cans in my time. Yep, you know the ones – where you have to scrunch your nose, and hold your breath for fear of breathing in and choking, until the hazy residue gently settles all around, all over…

 OMG A certified organic fast food chain. Yep, it’s REAL people. Are you like me and have driven around feeling hungry and thought, I’d just love to get some fast food that wasn’t the usual crap?

Now, I haven’t had the pleasure of trying Oliver’s yet, as unfortunately, there aren’t any stores located near me yet…

Sanitarium Weet-Bix for Kids

Have you ever considered buying kid’s foods for adults to eat as they have less additives? I recently came across Weet-Bix for Kids once my little Juliet started eating solids. After a closer look, I noticed that the adult version contains salt which isn’t in the kids’ version. I never really understood why salt needed to be added to an adult breakfast cereal. It just doesn’t make sense to me. And whilst I’m not altogether happy either one contains sugar,…

Sustainable Seafood – where does your fish come from?

Are you a seafood lover? 🐟 Yep, me too. My mum’s side of the family comes from a small Italian fishing village, so you could say the sea and eating seafood is in our blood. On our recent trip away, we were lucky to enjoy a beautiful seafood platter caught by local fisherman delivered to our door. So yum! They promoted the support of locally-caught fish in their marketing, and being an ex-corporate marketer, I always pay attention to the…

doTERRA Easy Air, Tea Tree & Lemon Essential oils – treating colds

Anyone else sick of being sick with a cold? Or having an entire sick household? Give me a hell yeah!. Around a month ago, my little Juliet came down with an awful cough which turned into a head cold and two weeks of pure hell. Blocked nose, awful heart-wrenching chesty cough and the inability to sleep with tears and more tears. From her (and at times me). Yep, pure hell. 🙄😷. Pre-baby, I had no idea what a nasal aspirator…
