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. Before bed I read an hour (sometimes more if I go to bed earlier) of fiction, whatever I want.

Today I’m giving you a guided tour inside my new ebook, Gluten-Free Vegan Survival Guide!
Thank you to everyone who has grabbed their copy of GFVSG already (or the lucky ducks who have jumped on the awesome bundle deal – see below)! I hope you are loving it!
I know this book will really help you get out of the lunch and dinner time stress-a-thon, standing in front of the fridge getting more and more annoying (and HUNGRY!).
This ebook is absolutely jam packed with value and must-know info. If you are still not sure if it’s right for you, I want to show you exactly what’s inside to help you decide

- In the first section I introduce myself, my story and why I wrote this book.
Squeeeeee! My newest, latest and greatest eBook, Gluten-Free Vegan Survival Guide is HERE!
I’m excited, and so bloody relieved to have this baby out in the world. As all my projects seem to do, this took much longer than I had planned. That’s life, isn’t it?
But I love everything about this book so much that I couldn’t wait to get it in your hands. Check out this insane looking chocolate cake:
I love every single recipe, the photos, the to-die-for chocolate cake with candy-looking strawberries piled on top, the design (#humblebrag), the diamond pattern, the gorgeous blues (I am being drawn to the colour blue like crazy at the moment).
And it’s here.
On its own, or in a beautiful bundle with my first book, Living on the Vedge. Read the rest of this post »
I’m sorry about the radio silence over here for the last few weeks… but I’ve been putting the finishing touches on something for you.
My eBook Gluten-Free Vegan Survival Guide lands on virtual bookshelves TOMORROW!! Woooo! I can see you all doing excited-gluten-free-chocolate-cake-with-frosting happy dances right now!
This book has so many kick-ass recipes like GF + V chocolate cake with frosting, cultured nut cheese, nut & seed BREAD! But I will tell you all the details and give you a peek at whats inside tomorrow.
For now, I have to share with you one of my favourite recipes from the book. These wraps!
I ate a whole wrap, without it falling apart at all – even with dressing/sauce all over it! Read the rest of this post »
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.
2. It’s creamier and naturally sweeter (thanks to the coconut) than regular yogurt.
3. 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. In the years that followed I have tried every thing possible to heal the damage done to my gut, but it only got worse. I looked sick. I felt sick. My weight skyrocketed over those 3 years, my brain was foggy, I had fatigue, my stomach was in pain every day. 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!). Any Indian dish or anywhere you would use some type of relish is where you want this tomato chutney. Read the rest of this post »
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.
3. It is easily digested for anyone who has problems with raw garlic.
And I promise, lacto-fermentation is not nearly as complicated or scary as it sounds. It’s the same thing we do when we make sauerkraut. 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. coli, and mold and mildew spores – especially when used in combination with vinegar.
A few important points:
1. SUPER IMPORTANT! Make sure you only buy 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide – not the kind in the brown bottle from the drug store. 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. But eggplant tastes so damn good, especially roasted.
Hopefully, between “bowl of brown crap” and admitting it doesn’t look appealing, I haven’t just turned you off trying baba ghanoush all together. If so, I’m very sorry.
But as least you can still get joy from saying the name? 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.
Things are going great so far and I’m seeing some improvements in my health already. The food has been challenging, especially the no salt and fat. Hopefully I’ll have some recipes to share once I really get the hang of it. 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…
What started your health and wellness journey?
I used to suffer from severe allergies and always got stomach aches after each meal. I had been on multiple prescription medications for most of my life but my symptoms never seemed to get better. One day, about seven years ago, I decided to become proactive about my health. Read the rest of this post »
