I’ve been wanting to share a recipe from Living on the Vedge with you since I released it months ago, but I just could not decide which recipe to show you! There are so many good ones to pick from.
But I have finally made my decision. And now, you have to do you’re part and make a batch of this amazing coconut yogurt! Read the rest of this post »
I have hit the 6 week mark of being on a modified version of Gerson Therapy! Woo-hoo! Six weeks doesn’t seem like much, but it has been a bit of an effort to reach this milestone. So, I wanted to show you what a day in my life is like right now while I’m in full-swing healing mode.
In case you don’t know my story, I’ll do a quick little recap: After years of increasing digestive pain and bloating, I was diagnosed with Celiac disease in 2011. Read the rest of this post »
It is completely worth making this chutney just for the divine smell that will waft through your house! Although, I can think of a few other reasons to persuade you as well.
This chutney goes perfectly with so many different things – served over rice or quinoa and chickpeas, or in these chickpea wraps. Maybe with some red lentil dahl, or some vegan yogurt. I even like it with some spreadable vegan cheese on crackers (try the almond feta from Living on the Vedge, or just wait until you get your hands on the cultured nut cheese that will be in my upcoming book, Gluten-Free Vegan Survival Guide - it will blow your mind!).

If you are a garlic lover and/or have any trouble digesting raw garlic, you must try this recipe!
Here’s another recipe from from my pre-Gerson, forgot-to-post collection! Fermented garlic. Sounds weird, doesn’t it? Well theres a few very good reasons to give this a go.
1. You can eat this raw – it has all of that delicious garlic flavour without the sharp bite of regular raw garlic – kind of like roasted garlic. Little garlic snacks!
2. It has all of that probiotic goodness from the fermentation process. Read the rest of this post »
Hydrogen peroxide is an amazing cure-all, on par with apple cider vinegar. It’s a naturally occurring substance in the human body, and is composed of only water and oxygen making it completely natural and safe in the right dilution.
Hydrogen peroxide is simply a water atom with an extra oxygen atom attached to it with a single bond. Because of this it has an oxidising effect which kills bacteria and revitalises cells.
Hydrogen peroxide is an antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, germicide and will kill harmful bacteria such as salmonella, E. Read the rest of this post »
I have to say, baba ghanoush is probably my favourite name for a food dish ever.
Fun to say, and even more fun when the person you’re saying it to has never heard of it before. The looks on their face is a mix of perplexion and horror – as in, “are you really going to try and make me eat that bowl of brown crap?”.
Okay, so roasted and blended eggplant may not be the most appealing looking food, I admit it. Read the rest of this post »
Today is my 12th “official” Gerson day! I’ve been taking a few weeks off from the blog as I figure out my daily schedule and try to keep up with the juices, enemas, meals and all the prep in between, as well as having a few off days in there.
A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to go on a little road trip up to the Sunshine Coast with my Mum to see a Gerson therapist, and it was such a good experience. Read the rest of this post »
Ilene is another of my passionate and incredibly inspiring fellow IIN classmates. She shares a similar food philosophy to me, and all of her recipes are gluten-free and vegan – my kinda gal! Her blog The Colorful Kitchen is just that, an incredibly colorful array of delicious looking meals!
Anyone who adds cacao nibs to avocadoes is a visionary, and someone you definitely want to know!
Take it away Ilene…

It took me awhile to jump on the coconut water bandwagon, but it has become my latest food obsession. I am officially on board - and ordering them in bulk!
I don’t believe there is one food or superfood that is a “cure-all”, but that it takes a whole, healthy diet outlook to heal. But I’ve read quit a few articles lately from “dieticians” bashing coconut water that were just silly.
So let’s give coconut water a fair trial here today, ladies and gentlemen of the court. Read the rest of this post »
It’s been a little while since I gave you an update on my health – so I wanted to share some things that have been happening.
Over the last few months I’ve been trying to heal a parasite infection thats been noticeably affecting me since around April. I think that I’m finally healing from that, and most of my symptoms have gone.
I had mentioned in my last health update that I was doing Gerson Therapy to about 85% of the diet, and that it was definitely showing improvement. Read the rest of this post »
I’m sorry for screaming in your face. But this is one of the best things I’ve ever eaten.
Okay, okay. Deep breaths. Let me calm down a little bit.
So years and years (and years) ago I was obsessed with a dish, which was basically just beef strips marinated in a kecap manis sauce, over a gigantic pile of white rice. And it was amazing. I was a simple and easily pleased gal.
My second favourite dish was Chinese soy chicken wings over, you guessed it, a gigantic pile of white rice. Read the rest of this post »
Let’s talk a little bit about internal parasites, shall we?
Parasites are tiny organisms (usually worms) that live off another organism and feed off it’s nutrition. Most can only be seen with a microscope so they can be hard to discover, although they can be much larger, like tapeworms.
They can also be hard to discover because depending on the type of parasite (of which there are many) the symptoms will vary from one extreme to another. If you have any random symptoms, not just digestive ones, and you haven’t found a cause, check for parasites. Read the rest of this post »
