It’s All In The Attitude; Abundance Over Scarcity

Posted in Lifestyle on September 16, 2016

What is the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning? Or the thoughts that swim around your mind before you fall asleep? What are the automatic reactions that you have throughout your day, as you incur setbacks or hiccups – as we all do as we travel through life. These moments can be what paints the background of our art piece, that give our life the tone of the overall picture. Often we are not even aware what pallet we are choosing because it is […]

Marc’s Quest For Life – A New Approach To Cancer

Posted in Health / People on September 09, 2016

I have a dear friend, Marc Garside. And unless a miracle happens, he is dying. But his illness — and his quest for life — have not been in vain. The epic rollercoaster of a journey he and his family have shared over the last year has been one that has touched many hearts and raised much needed awareness about Immunotherapy, an “alternative” cancer treatment that is having many successes where the outlook was otherwise hopeless and is changing the way we look at treating cancer. “Immunotherapy is more than […]

The AMAZING chef, Tracy Noelle Shares Shojin Ryorui.

Posted in Animal Welfare / Food / People on September 01, 2016

Don’t you love it when the universe provides you what you have been praying for! I meet Tracy at a dinner party ( a Mexican vegan one at that) one night after I had spent all week talking about how I would love to have someone like-minded and as passionate about educating others in how fun and healthy a cruelty-free life can be, to join me on The Compassionate Road. Tracy is an amazing chef and vegan – and while I love cooking (and I am a little obsessed with […]

Down The Farming Rabbit Hole With One Brave Woman, Sonia Faruqi

Posted in Animal Welfare / People on August 01, 2016

You wouldn’t know it from looking at the sweet face of Sonia in this photo – but this woman would have to be one of the strongest and bravest! Her recent book, Project Animal Farm, absolutely blew my socks off. Not only was it one of the most beautifully prosed literary defeats I have read, her thorough journey of discovery into international farming, from Canada and US, to Mexico and Belize, to Indonesia and beyond, went deeper than I could imagine. The result is a story that weaves jaw-dropping facts […]

The Aussie Battle For Man’s Best Friend; Why The Ban on Greyhound Racing Needs To Go National

Posted in Animal Welfare on July 21, 2016

That adorable, vulnerable face! Whether you are a paleo, a vegan, a butcher or a yoga teacher, the majority of humans share a love for our four-legged friends and who doesn’t love a puppy! Yet, unless you have been hiding under a rock you will know that last year in Australia, the horrific scandal behind the greyhound industry was exposed on Four Corners, Making A Killing, revealing, amongst much other cruel practices, 8,000 of these innocent puppies and another 10,000 ‘retired’ greyhounds are being killed every year because they are not […]

Nutritionist Kirsten Shanks On How To Stay Healthy On a Plant-Based Diet

Posted in Food / Health / People on July 19, 2016

I love Kirsten and everything she stands for, including her stunning Sydney business, Orchard St. She founded Orchard St early 2013 and is a qualified Naturopath, Nutritionist and Herbalist. A love of nature, a passion for healing and a strong belief in the use of food as medicine inspired her to develop Orchard St. Raised between the jungles of Borneo and rural New Zealand in a culinary family, an exotic variety of lovingly made food has always been at the centre of her life. After witnessing family illnesses remedied with […]

Why It Is Vital You – And Your Children – Are Getting Enough Zinc.

Posted in Health on July 12, 2016

This year my son started school, which resulted in his immune system having to work overtime while being exposed to the general all-sorts of germs that go around in classrooms. Unfortunately, even though I consider us to be a healthy family, he suffered from cold after cough after cold; even with me feeding him all my normally effective herbal and nutrition concoctions! Treating our own children is almost like treating ourselves; sometimes we don’t see what is right in front of us! So all it took was the wonderfully clever […]

The Unsustainable Cycle of Upgrading; Are You Playing A Part?

Posted in Lifestyle on June 06, 2016

I drive a ten-year old, slightly banged up, Toyota Prius – as does my husband. We bought them together ten years ago as a conscious environmental choice, (I realise there are some debates about the energy it takes to make and dispose of the battery but we still thought they were the best option) and for what they stand for. This was a big move for my husband who is a sports-car lover! Each time over the years we have thought about changing cars and “up-grading” we continuously come back […]
