Veganism is a fast growing food and ethical movement. For good reason, becoming a vegan can have many health as well as environmental benefits. Switching to a vegan diet however does not automatically guarantee it is going to be healthy. Becoming a 'healthy vegan' requires a certain approach to sourcing and preparing food in order to obtain the full benefits. If you are considering switching to a vegan diet, (either full or part time) there are some important things to take into account.
The beauty of becoming a vegan, is that you can source all of your dietary requirements from plant sources meaning you can unload your body from unhealthy and toxic animal products and foods processed using animal ingredients.
One of the challenges of radically changing any diet can be learning how to readjust your shopping and food preparation regime for maximum health and convenience. In the case of switching to a vegan diet, it is especially important, sensible and less time consuming to consult a good Nutritionist, who can advise you on how to meet all your dietary requirements for proteins, fats and carbohydrates in the right proportions.
It is important to discern and understand that many of the new vegan products being introduced into the market can be highly processed, toxic to the body and not recommended for a healthy diet. For example some of the fake meats and dairy products on the market such mock bacon, roast, sausages, and cheese, can be made from GM soy ingredients which contain highly processed hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP). Genetically modified and over processed foods whether of plant or animal origin, can be equally as harmful to the body and environment.
If you decide to become a vegan (or want to become a healthier vegan), be sure to consult a good Nutritionist who can support and guide you in developing a balanced and nutritious plan that ensures you meet all your daily requirements, using whole, natural and healthy ingredients, especially if you have any health conditions or concerns, train hard or suffer from allergies. This way you can be better educated on what your particular needs might be in relation to a vegan diet.
It’s actually really nice and interesting when you know how. Otherwise, try a vegan day once or twice a week to mix things up a bit and unload your body from having to process all those animal products. It’s extremely beneficial, when you know how!
There are many delicious, easy and healthy vegan / plant based recipes! See photos below for some simple and nutritious ideas. Whether being vegan is a full or part-time thing for you, do ensure you get the help you need to do it right both for you and for the planet!!
Dairy is a controversial issue and one that confuses people a lot.
We all know that dairy in large quantities is inflammatory to the body and the cause of much disease and obesity. But is it ok to have the occasional dairy if I’m an otherwise healthy person??
The answer to that depends on what your goals are. Raw and organic dairy products actually contain good bacteria and omega 3 fats which are good for us. Unfortunately, most commercially produced dairy products are far from coming from grass fed and organic animals. As such they contain no exceptional benefits to our bodies.
In terms of weight loss, the issue is a little bit more complicated. Because dairy is a mix of high fat and high sugars, it’s not the best thing for the waist line either.
My advice??? If you’re aiming to lose weight, I suggest you remove your dairy foods at least for a few weeks to aid weight loss. You can return some dairy into your diet from really good quality grass fed and organic sources, and if you can find raw that’s the best.
The important note to know is that many people report they are unable to lose or manage their weight when they consume dairy products. Everyone is different, so it depends how your body responds. If you find you can’t lose or maintain weight while eating dairy, you’re not alone.
My conclusion. If you’re going to eat dairy, be sure to source the best possible quality dairy products that will actually give you all the health benefits of Omega 3 fats and good bacteria. If you’re on a weight loss program. Think twice!!

On the run from significant illness following the death of a good friend her own age, Angela took the choice of living over disease.
In an age when disease and obesity can easily take hold, Angela took to choosing health over disease and prescription drugs. After a reality check at the Doctor’s office one day, Angela decided life was too short to throw away feeling tired, sore and unwell.
She embraced a new way of eating with open arms and has not looked back since. Her primary goal in seeking my help, was to reduce her cholesterol levels, improve her health and feel better.
She embarked on her new health journey with my recommended Health Eating Plan designed to fit her lifestyle, needs, interests and likes.
Eight weeks into her Healthy Eating Program, Angela has improved her health to an extent where her body no longer feels tired, sore and sluggish. She has reduced her waist size by 12cm and dropped from a dress size 16 to 12. Impressive! Extra outcomes even she did not expect. All in the timeframe of 8 weeks. No fads or gimmicks. Just pure, whole, natural foods used as medicine to prompt healing to the body.
She is not tied to a complicated plan and follows an extremely simple to execute eating regime that suits her hectic lifestyle as a successful business woman. She is a great role model for all women, especially in their middle ages.
I am happy to share with your Angela’s exact eating plan if you’d like to achieve outcomes like this.
CHOSE LIFE OVER DISEASE!! It is such a reward.
It’s pretty well known that there are many health benefits to consuming Apple Cider Vinegar on a daily basis, that have been scientifically proven. There is however, some very important information worth knowing before you begin your healthy journey with Apple Cider Vinegar.
The fact is, not all Apple Cider Vinegar is created equal. A properly fermented Apple Cider Vinegar is murky and thick. Have you ever seen real Apple Cider Vinegar fermenting in a barrel before? The commercialised ones you find on the supermarket shelves, unfortunately don't really stack up in terms of power and punch, and are not necessarily naturally fermented!
I can help steer you in the right direction as to:
When it comes to Apple Cider Vinegar, it really is a powerhouse of goodies for reducing cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar levels, detoxing, cleansing, increasing live enzymes and good bacteria in the gut, fighting disease and building immunity. It helps to improve the function of all the body's systems including improved skin.
