Superfoodie Spotlight: Claire Baker from This is Lifeblood

Claire BakerClaire Baker is a beautiful shining light in the health and wellness community. One of my favourite things about her is she is not about eating the ‘perfect’ diet, she’s about living a fun, playful, radiant life – and if that means eating cheese and wine every now and then, then she’s doing it!

The Ultimate Guide to Coffee Enemas

Guide to Coffee Enemas

Ah, the coffee enema.

If you want a good giggle, just tell someone that you do coffee enemas every day and enjoy the confusion-mixed-with-disgust look on their face that follows!

Actually, I was exactly the same when I first learned about coffee enemas. I thought they were just not for me, and not something I could ever bring myself to do. I got a little nervous pit in my stomach when I thought about doing one.

I knew they were beneficial, but there was no way you were getting me to put that tube up my butt. Read the rest of this post »

Healing Garlic & Parsely Potato Salad (GF, Vegan, Gerson)

Potato Salad

This is just one of the many, many ways that I eat potato. Since I am having them at every meal I have to get creative! But really I usually end up doing this same potato/garlic/parsley/flax oil combo, because it’s so yum and easy. I promise I’ll try harder!

Every ingredient in this recipe is incredibly nutritious and healing. Here’s why:

Potatoes:

Potatoes play a very important role in the Gerson diet. Despite the bad rap they’ve gotten, potatoes are actually incredibly nutritious.  Read the rest of this post »

Sweet Capsicum & Onion Relish

Capsicum & Onion Relish

I think this is my first official Gerson recipe on the blog! What took me so long?!

I’ve been doing the Gerson therapy for almost 3 months now and I am feeling amazing. Like a different person. I can’t wait to see the changes over the next few months (and hoping that I will be allowed a cheat day to enjoy Christmas!).

This recipe is simple, it tastes amazing, and when you’re eating as many baked potatoes as I am, its Godsend of a potato topper. Read the rest of this post »

10 Awesome Reads: Raw Desserts, Fun Fiction & Tapping

awesomereads800

It’s official: I’m now a bookworm. And I have the cool-nerdy glasses to prove it.

I am smashing through books so fast lately that I’m doing about 2 books per week. I am pretty impressed with myself.

I have a little bit of a reading routine happening. During my morning coffee enema I read a business or non-fiction book to get my brain pumping for the day. Then late afternoon enema is either non-fiction or fiction, whatever book I’m more into. Read the rest of this post »

Cultured Coconut Yogurt aka CoYo – Dairy-Free & Better Than the “Real” Stuff

CoYo

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!

Here are 5 reasons that you need this CoYo in you’re life right now:

1. It’s cultured meaning it is full of good bacteria – aka probiotics that help keep your digestive system healthy – more on that one in this post. Read the rest of this post »

A Day in the Life & On a Plate of a (Modified) Gerson Person

A day in the life

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 »

Indian Tomato Chutney

Indian Tomato Chutney

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!).

Lacto-Fermented Garlic

Fermented Garlic

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 »
