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…

Successful people start before they feel ready / Richard Branson /

How many times have you thought: “I’ll start eating better tomorrow.” “I would love to do something about the extra weight I’m carrying.” “I’ve got a great business idea!” “It’s time to look for a better job.” “I’d love to start using better skincare.” And you do nothing and just go back to normal everyday life. Sound familiar? Ever wondered why? It might be a whole range of reasons. But often it’s because we feel fear. Fear of rejection, fear…

What’s in my Nappy Bag?

I often get asked what products I use on Juliet, as there are so many on the market. It can get confusing to know what to use or choose, as so many products contain harmful toxins and fragrances, which can cause harm to our little ones. ⠀ I always stick to products where I can understand the ingredient’s listing, they are ideally certified organic, or have recognizable ingredients at the very least and I go with a less is more…

The Organic Butler Fresh Produce

I am a big believer in manifesting (combined with taking action) to get what you want in life, and I have a little story to share.⠀ It was Sunday morning last month, and hubby and I were chatting about how time is so limited now with all our work and family commitments. One of the things we have been striving to do is minimise – minimise our material stuff, minimise our commitments (I’m currently failing at that lol!!), minimise where…

Leda Banana Bars

It’s morning or afternoon tea time and you really need a pick me up. And plain fruit isn’t cutting it. So in the past, I would have a biscuit, some salty chips, lollies, anything to give me a spike in sugar or salt (or both) and I was happy for about 30 minutes. ⠀ Nowadays, I have improved my snack choices so my energy levels last a lot longer and I usually munch on a Carman’s Kitchen muesli bar, some…

Tooshies Baby Wipes

When you have a baby, wipes become your new second best friend. You can never replace your first best friend … lol. 🙂 🙊 And because we use so many of them in a day – to wipe bums, faces, grubby hands, tables, floors, walls, chairs, bench tops, ourselves, pretty much everywhere your baby is in the vicinity of – it’s easy to just buy the best value for money in a bulk pack. I know I did.⠀ But ……

Pukka Tea

I LOVE drinking tea. Which might sound odd, considering I’m of Italian heritage and coffee is deeply entrenched in our culture and family way of life. I don’t mind coffee occasionally, I just much prefer tea. ⠀ Tea makes me feel relaxed, peaceful, happy, chilled and is perfect shared with a friend. It seems to soothe any conversation and help heal the soul.⠀ I don’t mind what flavour either … which was great considering on my last visit to Healthy…
