Hemp is an incredibly nutritious little seed. It contains all 20 amino acids, making it an excellent source of protein, and it is also high in Omega 3 and Omega 6.

Raw Turmeric Chai Cheesecake From My Travels

Hello there, Sorry it has been a while but I am finally back on the blog after the last few weeks of travel through London, France, Switzerland and currently Italy.  I think I must be the only person who travels with a litre of coconut oil, some activated buckwheat and a packet of golden grind turmeric chai in my bag. Admittedly I picked up the oil and buckwheat from Wholefoods in London but the Golden Grind (a few packets of it) came all the way from Sydney and ended up at my friend’s place in the French Alps. I must confess I...

The Low Down on Buckwheat + Cacao Buckwheat Slice

One of the first times I tasted buckwheat was travelling through Uzbekistan and given the other food types on offer it was one meal I really looked forward to each day. The buckwheat was served as a creamy porridge called Kasha, which is made with roasted buckwheat. These days I tend to use unroasted buckwheat in my recipes, which comes in the form of buckwheat groats – small golden triangles (hulled) that can also be soaked and activated to maximize their nutritional value.Buckwheat is a nutrient dense food with a huge range of health benefits.  Although buckwheat contains wheat in its name...

Superfood Chocolate Morsels + Healthy Father's Day Ideas + Reader Special

Hello there, So Father's Day is coming up - Sunday the 7th of September in case you needed a reminder :). I was in two minds as to whether to write about healthy Father's Day ideas. When I sounded it out with my sister she reminded me my business is about women's health, not men's. From my experience women make men's health their business, in fact many of the women I know (myself included) almost seem to be more concerned about the health of the men in their lives than their own. If you read on you will see there is good reason to be concerned....I...

How Blue And Purple Foods Can Transform Your Health

Hello Lovely Friend,   "Eat your greens". It’s probably something we have all heard many times growing up. Without a doubt green foods are wonderfully nourishing for our bodies; they are nutrient dense and excellent for alkalizing the body (read more about  alkalizing in a previous article  here  and  green algaes here )……BUT did you know about the incredible health benefits of blue and purple foods?                          Last month I came down with flu like symptoms and my whole body ached. The thought of getting sick made me see red….and...

Chia Colada Anyone?

Ok so it's been a while since I've had a quite a while! Fertility prep, plus 9 months preggie time and now nursing. I've never been a big drinker but I have to say, every now and then I kind of feel like a drink :) The irony of the name of this blog post is that a chia colada isn't even a drink, let a long an alcoholic drink! Of course in true Simone style it's a healthy little morsel of omega goodness in a glass (a chia pudding really) that reminds me of pina colada. I clearly need a holiday somewhere exotic...

Maqui Berry Raw Superfood Cheesecake

I'm in love again As most of you probably know by now, I have a bit of a love affair with super foods! I do have some of my trusted favourites but I'm always open to trying something new. So I have fallen in love again, this time with Maqui Berry. Call me superficial but part of me has fallen purely for it's looks - the most beautiful deep purple colour that illuminates any dish it is added to (smoothies, cakes, chia pudding). Thankfully there is much more to Maqui Berry than just it's looks - it has plenty of nutritional benefits to boast about...

December Newsletter - Christmas Bliss Balls, Gifts, Health Tips, Specials + More

December is a great month to... Recharge your energy this silly season!December can be a fun filled month of socialising, Christmas parties and entertaining. It can also be a month where we get pulled in many directions, finishing the working year, trying to fit in Christmas shopping, catching up with loved ones, as well juggling the demands of day to day life. All of these factors can be a drain on our energy. In our house with a new baby in tow we are doing less of socialising than usual, but plenty of juggling. The combination of a bit more stress, a little less sleep...
