100% Paleo Green Smoothie

Its almost Friday (YAY) but before tomorrow comes along I have a big day in clinic following up with and seeing new clients to get through! So to keep me on my feet I’m pulling my (dusty) blender out and blitzing up a mix of goodness. This one is 100% Paleo so there is NO fruit, dairy, gluten or added sugar…. but PLENTY of healthy FAT! By eating FAT you are NOT going to get fat! Fat is needed within your diet to help regulate and balance your sex hormones (oestrogen, progesterone, testosterone), improve concentration, memory, energy, helps the body use essential vitamins, protects your organs from injury (acts as a protective cushion) and most importantly, provides the structural components of myelin, the sheath surround each nerve fibre in the brain, to deliver messages faster! So eat all those avocados! because FAT IS YOUR FRIEND!   Naturally, K IG: @itswholesomekay    FB: /WholesomeKay Advertisements

THE POWER OF AWARENESS AND FEELING

  Wow, I haven’t  posted in so long! No excuses no excuses, but to be quite honest with you, I’ve  struggled to find motivation to do anything the last couple months. Since I started back at uni everything just hit me all at once, and I became a little bit lazy and even stopped exercising for a period there – and that’s not like me all! I love to keep active and fit! Within the first few weeks of February I felt the change in my body transitioning  from a relaxing holiday state into a stressful uni environment AND workplace, and I never really allowed myself to take a breath, chill out and refresh. Needless to say, I wore my body out physically, emotionally and mentally, which I now feel embarrassed to say as I always advise to listen to your body, but clearly, I sometimes even dont take my own advice.  Anyway, I ended up undoing some of my hard work and put on a few kilos because I was under nourishing myself by …

Eggplant Lasagna

Talk about plant power. I have been looking for a simple, easy eggplant lasagna recipe E V E R Y W H E R E but couldn’t find one that didn’t use cheese or pasta sheets. So I made my own…. and now I can’t stop eating it. Helppppppp Eggplant is a great low-calorie and nutrient dense alternative to pasta if you are gluten-free and is even enjoyable grilled in a little olive oil. It’s also quite impressive cut in thin strips, grilled, filled with tuna + avocado, rolled and then baked in the oven, topped with flax seeds. (Complete food porn right there)

Healthy Halloween Snack Ideas

What exactly is Halloween and what does it stand for? The exact thoughts of an Australian blogger who follows American bloggers. But that doesn’t matter because Halloween is one freakin’ crazy and fun night. Especially when those kids continuously visit your house in different costumes (and NO COSTUMES? Whats with that?) yelling trick or treat, expecting you to treat them with a bucket full of candy and chocolate each time – that shiz is cute. Or when you dress up as whatever you like and spread fake blood and zippers and webs all over your body without anybody judging you – THE best! But as much as I am all for the tradition of Halloween and giving candy, I also love to keep it healthy too (summer is less than 2 months away guysssss) Well for party celebrations anyway, even though I once tried ‘treating’ kids with a scary mandarin and they said with a frown on their face: “I don’t want that. I want lollies”. Mmmhmm, it was very embarrassing. #fail So I thought …
