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. Read the rest of this post »

Baba Ghanoush (aka Roasted Eggplant Dip!)

Baba Ghanoush

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 »

Eggplant Parmigiana (Gluten-Free + Vegan)

eggplant parm

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 »

Coconut Water: Natures Gatorade

Coconut Water

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 »

Time to Get Serious

Gerson meals

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 »

Chinese Honey Soy “Beef” Tofu on Cauliflower Rice

Chinese Honey Soy Tofu

AHHHHHHH!

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 »

Are Parasites Causing Your Unexplained Symptoms?

Parasite Killer Smoothie

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 »

What Are Your Gluten-Free Pasta Options?

Gluten Free Pasta Guide

When you remove gluten from your diet, the first few weeks can be pretty stressful as you go through the stages of grieving what was likely the staple of your diet (even though maybe you didn’t realise it!).

Well heres my super secret tip to making good gluten-free food: find healthy replacements for the foods you used to love. Read the rest of this post »

Roasted Pumpkin + Apple Coconut Soup with Potato Chip Dippers (Vegan + Gluten-Free)

Pumpkin Apple Coconut Soup

Real winter is finally here! You know shit’s getting real when you start making pumpkin soup.

I’ve never been a huge fan of pumpkin soup, or really soup in general – it just doesn’t fill me up or leave me satisfied as a meal on it’s own. But this soup is different.

It’s deeply flavourful, thanks to the slow roasting of the pumpkin + onion + apples. And it’s also satisfying and filling thanks to the coconut milk / cream and potatoes. Read the rest of this post »
