Whole Foods

vegetablesIt is our mission to show you how easy it can be to incorporate more of whole, raw, organic and locally grown foods into your lifestyle .

So just what are whole foods? These are foods that are unprocessed or unrefined before they are consumed and typically don’t contain any added salt, fat or carbohydrates. Think fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts, seeds and legumes, wild fish or organically farmed meat.

There is no doubt that unprocessed, unrefined whole foods have to be better for us than processed foods. Or that increasing our intake of a range of multi coloured fruit and veges (especially greens – yep, our mothers were right all along!) is the way to go. Most of us are already aware that eating lots of sugar, salt and bad fats are not good for our health.

We understand that making a complete lifestyle change isn’t do-able for everyone. But we encourage you to give some small changes a try. Perhaps you could introduce a daily green juice, or a vegetarian meal a couple of nights a week to your lifestyle?

Over time, this site will features heaps of delicious gluten, dairy and sugar-free recipes for you to try, and information about different whole foods and how they can benefit your wellbeing.  A high proportion of the recipes will be vegetarian but can be easily adapted for meat eaters.

Please take a moment to have a look around. And keep coming back as we’re adding new content all the time!
