Produce that is in season locally is cheaper, tastes better and has more nutrients. Fruits and vegetables start to lose nutrients immediately after they are harvested, so the best produce is that which is the freshest. Produce that has been transported over long distances overseas or cross-country can not compete with locally grown produce for freshness, taste and nutritional value. (http://seasonalfoodguide.com)

Heres to another 365 days of happiness, health and passion for food and fitness.
A year ago I visited a dietitian because I could not bare another day of living with IBS. I started clean eating under her guidance and haven’t looked back a day since. I was having complications with my stomach every 2-3 days, and that has been minimised to once or twice every 2 months. For anyone else with IBS – you can understand, that this is an amazing improvement. In regards to eating cleaner and healthier, I feel much better, with more energy and deeper sleeping, I crave foods like vegetables instead of sweets and have discovered some beautiful and delicious food along the way. I hope your health and wellbeing has improved also. Let me know!! Happy anniversary guys! xx

I can barely get enough of this goodness lately! Product of the week- Soy Ice-cream.
Soy has been proven by scientists and food institutions to reap huge health benefits, especially that of heart health. So get some of this baby into your diet! Soy is a wonderful replacement for full dairy ice-cream, with lower fat and sugar content.
I have mine with a quarter cup of apple puree as treat, mmmm mmmm!
