Nutritional guidance & personal training with mentored support from Lisa Michele
The supermarkets are one confusing place with so many products to choose from. The Food Industry does little to help with its media catch phrases and advertising lines all developed with the aim to sell products, rather than promote health. Below are a list of some of my favourite products that I use regularly and […]
Many large towns and cities such as Canberra (my home town) have an array of restaurants to choose from. New places seem to open daily and as we become more invested in our health culinary entrepreneurs have responded by providing an increasing number of healthy eating options on the menu. In 2015 my family relocated […]
This was my go-to brekky during the winter months living in Canberra. The topping works perfectly on oatmeal and even served with yogurt as a morning or afternoon snack. Serves 1 Ingredients: ½ cup rolled oats 1 cup milk of choice (or water) ½ cup almonds ½ cup coconut flakes ½ cup goji berries ½ cup flaxseeds […]
I’ll be the first to admit that Coles and Woolworths (and other such SUPER-market grocery stores) can be a convenient shopping destination. With numerous locations spread across Australia usually only a short drive away and stocked with a consistent large array of products likely to have everything you will need, where can you go wrong. […]
Sweet potato is rich in complex carbohydrates, dietary fibre and vitamin A and contributes moderate amounts of vitamin B5, B6 and manganese. Baked sweet potato is higher in vitamin C. A great vegetarian comfort meal, very warming and filling on the tummy. Serves 2 Ingredients: 1 x medium sweet potato per person 1 tbsp virgin olive oil 2 […]
This is what I enjoy for dessert most nights. It is so warming on the stomach. Raw cacao contains significant amounts of antioxidants, magnesium and the neurotransmitters dopamine and phenylethylamine (PEA) known to aid mental alertness, improve mood and help with weight loss. Serves 1 Ingredients: 1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk 1 tsp natvia […]
In keeping physically, mentally and spiritually fit it is important to have backups. This is true in many respects. It helps to have a network of family and friends who support you as you move toward your goals, affirm your progress and lift you up when you fall down, as we all sometimes do. Other […]
Filled with green veggies, lean protein and certainly not lacking in flavour. Chicken is a great protein source, low in fat and contributes significant niacin, phosphorus, selenium, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. Serves 2-3 Ingredients: 400g chicken breast, sliced 3 zucchini 1 tbsp virgin olive oil 1 onion, diced 1 bunch of asparagus ½ cup […]
Having recently re-located to Port Macquarie I have become very fond of seafood restaurants. Macadamia-crusted fish is my new favourite restaurant-meal. Here is my home-made version that taste even better! Macadamia have the highest amount of monounsaturated fats of any known seed. They contain 9% protein, 9% carbohydrate, and 2% dietary fibre, as well as […]
