What is a Nutritionist?
An accredited nutritionist has received tertiary training in the field of nutrition (in my case an Advanced Diploma in Nutritional Medicine). They will also be a member of a governing body, holding them to a high level of professional conduct and ensuring they adhere to set targets for continued education each year.
However, “nutritionist” is not a protected term here in Australia, meaning anyone can call themselves a nutritionist. Make sure you ask what training / qualifications they have. Continue Reading
“Gummy squares!!!! Bouncing here and there and everywhere….?”
Anyone? No? Just me then!
Anyway, the point of this unicorn (rarely seen) post is….AIP gelatin gummies! Continue Reading
Lovely legumes at Alfalfa House, Enmore, Sydney
Ok, so this post has been on my mind a bit lately. I first published it over a year ago and, nutritionally speaking, I was in quite a different place back then. Wholefoods were very much my focus, but I hadn’t considered foods beyond “wholefoods good processed foods bad”. I hadn’t yet decided that I was going to start the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), and I wasn’t Paleo either, and I’d probably eat tinned legumes about once a week or so feeling quite virtuous for doing so. But things have changed somewhat since then! And yesterday I received an email asking my position on legumes as a post AIP elimination phase reintroduction, based on the original version of this post. So I thought now would be a good time for an update!? Continue Reading
time to celebrate!
This is going to be the quickest recipe ever written! I made this salad today, for our first official AIP picnic here in Sydney, and I thought it turned out so well I couldn’t wait to get it written up and on the blog! (Well that, and I didn’t want to forget what I’d put in it 😉 ) Continue Reading
yummy baked chicken served with roasted sweet potatoes and onion with a fresh green salad
Roasted or baked chicken is such a favourite of mine. It’s usually pretty cheap, it doesn’t take much for it to taste amazing and you can keep the bones to make stock! Yay!! Even If I’m not having a whole chicken (like for this recipe, where I used the super juicy thighs), I just collect together the little bones, freeze them and keep adding to my stash until I have enough to boil up for a good old bone broth. Win-ning! Continue Reading
Meat and 3 Veg Meatballs
I love making meatballs, they are so easy to batch cook and great to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And these little babies are my new favourites! Not only are they a delicious way to get extra veg into your meal, they also pack a great anti-inflammatory punch from turmeric, garlic and ginger.
Easy Peasy Chocolate Milk
I’ve been able to reintroduce raw cacao into my diet! I know – exciting!! After 5 months with no chocolate it’s been really nice to get that flavour back – plus the antioxidant hit that raw cacao gives. If you’re following the autoiummune protocol (AIP) and haven’t added raw cacao back in yet you can easily sub carob which has it’s own health benefits, including being a rich source of phosphorous and calcium.

Green and Gold – Australia Day Salad!
This is such a simple salad to throw together, it tastes great, looks impressive and is the perfect combination of green and gold, plus fresh Aussie produce for Australia Day! Continue Reading
look how pretty they are!
What with it being Valencia orange and passionfruit season here in Australia, I thought what better way to use these delicious ingredients than to make some yummy gummies! They taste like sweets, but they’re good for you 🙂 Continue Reading
I’ve been following the Autoimmune Protocol for about 5 months now (you can read about my early experiences here, here, here, here, here, here, here?and?here!)?and boy, have I learnt a lot along the way (more about that in a later post…)! Continue Reading
