My recipe for stuffed pumpkin and garden expo info.

Hello and welcome to my latest blog , newsletter.

This weekend the Medicineroom is heading to Queensland Garden Expo in Nambour. This event is a favourite on our Calendar each year. The Nambour Showgrounds are taken over by Gardeners  . The area is turned into a maze of green leaves and flowers. There are thousands of gardeners in one place and the conversations are all green thumbed and focused on the good life!

I am presenting there twice this year. On Friday morning at 9am we will unravel the health benefits of winter cough cold and flu relief. What can you make at home to help you with reduce these ailments.

On Saturday I will be at Eumundi markets all day so Tam will be at the Garden show looking after you and I will be there in the afternoon. On Sunday I am doing a presentation on winter warming foods that truely are medicine. The recipe I have here in my blog is one idea on winter food as medicine.

Now, if you can come to my presentations thats great. We always hove some lovely giveaways and fill your hour with education and practical how to make medicine workshops. Its fun.  If not then here is a recipe.

We  have our next LONG TABLE WELLNESS DAY IN MALENY ON  SUNDAY JULY 29th on making herbal medicines for skin care including pain relief, skin conditions and hormonal skin changes.

Here is my recipe for stuffed pumpkin. 

My friend Vanessa has had a garden full go pumpkins all summer. She invited me over for lunch and made the most delicious stuffed pumpkin with lots of rice and vegetables. Vanessa served this with toasted pumpkin seeds and avocado dip. It was so yummy, and it was so inspiring.  As I was getting ready to leave, her lovely partner Rob came out and cut a pumpkin for me so that I could bring it home to stuff myself. This opened up the kitchen of creativity for me again….

Why are pumpkins good for you? The contain betacarotene which is a great precursor to vitamin A and sweep the liver and blood clean of toxins. Beautiful antioxidant qualities of lycopene thats been shown to reduce prostate cancer as well as many other anti cancer properties. They are high in potassium so great for cellular health and to reduce blood pressure. You need to keep your sodium and potassium in balance and this gorgeous vegatable helps you do that well. They are also high in fibre, esp my recipe where you eat the skin.

What you need

1 large pumpkin that has been deseeded. The inside needs to be scooped out enough to fill the pumpkin with your choices. The lid needs to be kept.  To scoop out the pumpkin slice around the top of the whole pumpkin with a sharp knife and scoop off the lid. Then take out the seeds with a large spoon and scoop with the spoon into the flesh of the pumpkin until you only have about 1.5 inches of outer flesh and skin as a case for your stuffing.

Your stuffing for the pumpkin here are some ideas.

Precook  brown rice and mix with fresh raw vegetables cut in small pieces. Mix them all together and add your spices.

Meats of your choices mixed in with vegetables. This can be done with 1 kg of fresh local meat chopped finely and mixed with onion, garlic and spices.

My choice this week  freshly chopped up vegetables and winter garden herbs. Mixed with ricotta cheese so that you have a big cheesy ball.

Make sure you add your favourite flavouring spices to this mix. Examples are garlic, herbs, stock powder for extra flavour, peanut butter, ( yes my fav) some honey, a little salt, chilli, curry powder. Add what flavours you want to enhance and this will cook into the pumpkin for a full flavoured feast.

You can theme the pumpkin too. For example make a curry and fill it with that. Or for a Mexican theme add beans and corn with a tomato filling.  creamy cheesy fillings are also good. Make sure your filling is dense without much liquid and pop the top on your pumpkin before cooking.

How to cook.

  1. Stuff the pumpkin with the mix you made.

2. Turn the oven onto 150 degrees slow oven for this one and if you have the option to turn off the fan, then turn it off.

3. Place the pumpkin in a baking dish and coat with some good quality olive oil and rub lightly with some sea salt.

4. Bake in the oven for three to four hours with the oven slow and low. This enables the pumpkin to cook right through and the flavours to mature nicely.  You can also place the pumpkin in a deep casserole dish in the oven too with a lid on. The choice is yours. Either way you want to give this dish time to cook so that the end result is a soft and flavour filled meal.

We served ours with some coconut, raison and pine nut rice, honey carrots and butter beans.

This dish is one of the worlds best left overs too. Just pop the remaining food in the fridge and feast on pumpkin for a day or so.

Our next workshop is on July 29th  in Maleny. We will be making Herbal medicines for skin care and wellness. This includes skin conditions and arthritis and pain relief.

We will be at Queensland Garden expo and Splendour in The Grass Global Village in July too.

Antipasto, simple delicious nourishment!

Antipasto is such a great food. Its super versatile and really delicious. Its also one of the best warm detox foods you can have!  So if you want a winter cleanse.. this is the one.. The word Antipasto  is Italian and means to eat before the meal! Its also called antipasta and antipasti. All meaning the same thing! 

We love nourishing and healing food combos. One of our favourites is going with the seasons and eating foods according to ancient Chinese seasonal elements.  The winter element is water. Yes, good old flowing water. So eating with water involves foods that are water like. They are purifying, flowing and cleansing with rich minerals and easy digestion.

These foods are often the ones with hues of water like colours in them, so we are thinking blues, purples and also foods from water. Water season is about hibernation and going light on yourself. So, this involves going light on your digestion. They are also foods that grow quickly and in wintery environments such as fungus, yes lots of mushrooms. Foods that have easily been preserved from the summer bounty, so dried and roasted vegetables. And wintertime foods need a good dose of feel good mood food!

My book The Magic of Food as Medicine explains to you all the health giving benefits of fruits vegetables and herbs. So make your food your medicine. This is a good one because its so full of fresh and nourishing ingredients. Rainbows of colour on the platter, seasonal goodness and nourishing combinations make antipasto one of the best wintertime foods!

Antipasto is a great winter food. It meets all of the requirements of water foods with a super nurturing and nourishing addition of filling our wintertime mood food criteria!

Mood foods are foods that fill your belly and feed your emotions. They are foods that help you feel good and its great when this category of food can be met with vegetables! and garlic bread, of course!

Lets share this super  recipe with you now. 

Dom’s antipasto recipe. 

What you need 

1 large eggplant, aubergene

2 red capsicums

1 cup of cherry tomatoes or three whole tomatoes

1 red onion

1 cup of mushrooms

1 cup of your favourite olives

200  to 300grams of your favourite cheese. ( we used French goats cheese and some fresh goats cheese)

Olive oil

Lemon juice

sea salt

spices and herbs of your choice

garlic

ginger

A big baking dish

a serving platter or two. ( we used two)

How to make our antipasto recipe. 

  1. Slice up all of the vegetables to roughly the same size. I like to  slice them in long slithers for the eggplant and capsicum. I always leave the cherry tomatoes whole. I slice the mushrooms if they are large, or leave them whole. Depending on the vegetable and what I want the final presentation to look like on the platter. Be creative.
  2. roll the vegetable s in a combination of olive oil , sea salt and different spices and herbs. I put each vegetable in a different spice, garlic, herb combination , so that the different flavours come through in the eating.
  3. Place these all on the large baking dish in sections. Ie capsicum, tomatoes, egg plant etc in their own section. Place in oven preheated to 175 C ( heat it first) and allow tp bake for 40 minutes.
  4. Take it out and allow to cool on the bench before assembling onto platters and adding the cold olives, cheese and any other additions you want to add.

 

We made a simple garlic bread to go with this and served as an entree. It also makes a fabuloius platter for parties and celebrations. This is also wonderful as a detox food. Make a platter and enjoy your wintertime nourishing cleanse.

My book The Magic of Food as Medicine explains to you all the health giving benefits of fruits vegetables and herbs. So make your food your medicine. This is a good one because its so full of fresh and nourishing ingredients. Rainbows of colour on the platter, seasonal goodness and nourishing combinations make antipasto one of the best wintertime foods!

Mid winter…. finding your own clarity

Do you feel like something is finally being cleared? Like there is a certain cleansing and healing effect that comes with the depths and coldness of mid winter.? 

Thats great if you do, because that will give you more clarity and allow you to move forward in your life in all areas. This is the time of hibernation, we are the bear, in the cave and we are internally looking at our lives and listening to our minds in the peace and silence that this season brings us. Or are we?

Being caught up in technology, outside activities and the world around us takes away this privilege of internal reflection thats so needed for each of us. When we make time to look back on our lives, look back on our actions, experiences and responses , then we are able to process this logically and really be our best counsellor and see where we have contributed to the rise and fall in our own lives.

We can also see where we have taken on other peoples emotions, ideas and philosophies. Do they serve us? Do they help us now?

If not then its time to let them go. Its time to really be in your own healing space and have your own mind and body decide whats best for you. Its not about what everyone else is doing. That may not help you at all. What we all need is to have the clarity and the ability to see our own life path, our own highest ambitions and destiny calling and be able to see that, activate that and then take the steps to make that happen.  Its an important part in the evolutionary annual process of the seasons and of wintertime.

However, ( yes thats the word my friend) How, ever…. however you can make that happen…. make it happen.

Opening your own self  potential, your own wellness and your own life path. Thats how greatness happens, thats how the world becomes a better place. When we are all doing what we love and when we vibrate to a happiness and sense of purpose. Then we are able to be more generous and loving to those  around us and in turn they can also lift up into their own loving purpose.

How do we do this? Well its simple…. we need to listen to ourselves instead of everyone else. We need to be like that bear and get in the cave and hibernate… We need to hide from the world and just observe ourselves. Watch our minds, listen to our voice of wisdom within and come through the tunnel of facing our internal dilemmas as best we can.

We need to feel our ” Gut feeling” about something and follow our intuition in all aspects of our lives. This is simply done by just quietening the mind, breathing and listening to the wisdom of our body.

I wanted to write this in my blog today because winter, especially rainy winter days and cold times are a great opportunity for us to take that long earned rest and step beyond ourselves into a newer and deeper refection of who we are and what we want.. this can help us make our lives a beautiful journey of following truth with real communication and honesty. To have these qualities it helps if we can understand ourselves and know what we want and need for happiness. This is best achieved through quiet personal time and refection.

Hey, do yourself a favour after reading this blog…. stay in your bedroom for a day or two, just hang out in bed. You can listen to music, make yourself food and bring it in there and eat, drink tea, lie around. Do nothing. Turn off the technology and reflect. Have a journal with you and make notes, go and have lots of baths and showers and stay super warm and cleansed. Turn down social activities and see what happens…. make yourself the great experiment in self refection and face your darkness…. open that to the light and watch the results….

Our next workshop is on July 29th in Maleny. We will be making Herbal medicines for skin care and wellness. This includes skin conditions and arthritis and pain relief.

We will be at Queensland Garden expo and Splendour in The Grass Global Village in July too.

Make your own delicious Chai…… simple and fun.

Did you know that Chai is the common word for tea…. yes, its just tea… any kind of tea really. You can add spices and its called chai, you can add milk and sugar and its called chai masala. These days you can add turmeric and its golden chai, add cacao and its cacao chai, add red bush tea instead of black tea and we have ruby chai., or caffeine free chai.

Last month at The Planting Festival one of the workshops I did was on chai and we talked about why its so popular and good for you.  I wanted to share that information so that you can enjoy your chai/ tea even more.

Antioxidants are a plenty in the green leafy tea plant. Camellia sinensis is the botanical name for all the bases we call tea.  Green tea is raw and its just dried. Black tea is dried and then ran through heat to semi roast the leaves. Then you can add lots of flavouring agents such as essential oils, spices, herbs and other flowers etc to make the special recipes that compose the tea industry.

Theres the old saying ” a cup of tea will fix everything” and its true… Simply make yourself a cup of tea, or call by a loved ones home when you are in distress and notice how it soothes the mind and body. Specific herbal teas to help make this saying come true are the herbal chamomile and valerian, passionflower and lemon verbena who are all renowned for making you feel good. When it comes to the feel good factor of black and green tea, we can add in the ingredients of a loving person to listen to your woes, a delicious aroma of the tea pot brewing and the soothing tone of a loved one supporting you… add in a cup of tea and drinking the warmth into your body is so healing.  Its almost an epic genetic cure all for our generations of family drinking tea together and sorting out the problems of the world…

Spices added to the tea we call chai come from ancient China and India. There are many regional and seasonal varieties to the tea we call chai. The spices added range from nutmeg, star anise, cinnamon, cardamon, vanilla, chilli, pepper, ginger, clove buds and other spices that are exotic and flavoursome. When tea became popular in England, Europe and through the western world, It was time for people to show off their wealth by adding spices to foods and beverages. This was the 1700 and 1800’s where ships ruled the seas and wealth was measured in the tea world by accessibility to the exotic. In countries like China and India where this was common practice, there were some really practical reasons why you would add spices to the drink. These practicalities are that the spices are antimicrobial and boost immunity there by fighting off infections and illness that may be caused by poor water supplies and regional and seasonal illnesses. So basically spiced chai was like a medicine. In these countries the addition of sugar was exotic…. and sometimes the milk was yak milk, buffalo milk. butter or even sour milks.

So next time you have chai, enjoy it and remember you are drinking a special drink that is seeped in history.

Add what ingredients you like to your own taste buds. Make it up as you go along and drink the drink of deliciousness!

If you want to try our lotus chai you are very welcome. Its my recipe of organic black tea, cardamon, star anise, cinnamon, clove buds, red bush tea and ginger. Energising, antimicrobial, fights infections and keeps you feeling strong through the winter.

Make your own chai using teas and spices that appeal to you for flavour and medicinal benefits..

Our next workshop is on July 29th in Maleny. We will be making Herbal medicines for skin care and wellness. This includes skin conditions and arthritis and pain relief.

We will be at Northey Street Winter Solstice event on July 23rd with Dom presenting at 4pm. Please note Dom will be at Eumundi markets all morning as usual on this day.

How to make my Golden Zing… Ginger Lemon Honey deliciousness!

Hello and welcome to my Blog/ newsletter.

Its getting cold…. We were doing yoga on the beach  early this morning  with our wet suits on and a cold southerly wind keeping us alert! Woosh, we felt it… Then the sun came up and we were in the water, the sea temperature was warm and embodied us in a deliciousness of warm watery peace…. So beautiful… I love the ocean and I love my surfing journey. Its been about a year and a half now since I started. I started because it was summer and I was in Sri Lanka at the Surf Inn and everyone else surfed. I met women who were totally inspiring and it was their delight and passion for surfing that become infectious… Now days I go with our beautiful Surf Sisters and we all support each other beautifully. Even on cold wintery mornings… Thats the joy of having something you are passionate about and at the same time learning new skills. Whatever it is that gets you up and doing something inspiring… I recommend that you do it… Its brings so much growth and happiness. Its worth the effort!

After surfing, after exercise, after any sports its great to take antiinflammatory and pain relieving herbals. The best part about Golden Zing is that it is composed of the herbs, turmeric, ginger and black pepper. I did a workshop on this at The Planting Festival, I talk about it all the time…. Its so important..

So the low down.. Organic dried ginger root, mixed with turmeric root and black pepper ( also chemical free and grown with Love)

The magic here is that they are really well absorbed in the body in a tea format for what we want to achieve which is an increase in circulation, antioxidant properties, anti inflammation care and also did you know black pepper is an anti depressant? its supports your emotional body, as well as helps the absorption of all foods, including turmeric and ginger…. So add black pepper to everything… it helps digestion of all foods…. not just turmeric… ( which is popular advertising at the moment)

My Golden Zing base also makes our awesome Golden Laksa soup… to do this simply leave out honey and add garlic and spices, plus decoct the herbs instead of seeping them in a long infusion.  That might be too technical for this blog…. there are few limitations when adding turmeric, ginger and black pepper to your diet.. its a case of better in than not in…… ( suggesting that you can add these ingredients to most meals if desired)  details of how to make infusions and decoctions is in my book The Magic of Food as medicine available as download online.

RECIPE FOR MY GOLDEN ZING VERSION OF GINGER LEMON HONEY DRINK.

Take a big tablespoon of Golden Zing herbal blend and put it in your tea pot.

Add 1.5 litres boiling water

Add a big tablespoon of local honey ( to taste, or maple syrup, golden syrup or molasses)

Add a pinch of good sea salt.

Leave to long infuse for fifteen to thirty minutes,

Pop a tea cosy, tea towel or fabric around the pot to keep it warm.

Then stir and drink.

Yumm. welcome to our version of Ginger lemon honey that will help you stay energised and warm!

Our next workshop is on July 29th in Maleny. We will be making Herbal medicines for skin care and wellness. This includes skin conditions and arthritis and pain relief.

Dom’s aged Garlic Recipe for winter wellness from our workshop on Sunday.

We had so much fun on Sunday at Maleny. We had a wonderful long table wellness day and everyone enjoyed education and making potions for winter wellness at home. Thanks so much those who came and for those who couldn’t join us here is the recipe for aged garlic that we made.

This pic was taken at the workshop. Big Thanks to Andy my herbalist associate and student who came along and helped make your day super special. You will be seeing Andy working with us in festivals and at the markets. Say Hello to this wonderful young man and make him welcome as he is a gardener herbalist…. so he grows plants and can help you with plant information.

Aged Garlic is awesome because it gets better with time. Theres no need to spend money on garlic supplements when you can make it yourself and its better than anything you can get elsewhere. 

This  recipe packs a punch when it comes to winter wellness. There are loads of diversifications to make it even more therapeutic…. 

  1. Take the base of garlic extract and add any or all of the following for wintertime wellness.

Lemon juice, chilli, turmeric, ginger, onion juice, honey, sea salt, apple cider vinegar. Yes add a little. or a add a lot.

2. You can add my garlic extract to cooking instead of garlic cloves…. its powerful medicine and tastes divine….

3. To alleviate the ” garlic breathe” simply add some chlorophyl in the form of parsley, spirulina, green spinach etc to the same meal where you have the garlic and it counteracts the bad breath…. Lots of green and lots of garlic…

Dom’s aged Garlic Recipe. 

  1. Take 1 to 2 kg of local garlic bulbs from your garden or friendly market stall.

2. Clean the garlic well, break the bulbs up a little so that they are in pieces. Do not peel the garlic. You can cut off the roots.

3. (Now place your garlic in a bowl full of water with a little (30ml per litre) apple cider vinegar. You are not going to run the water through the blender.  You want the garlic wet so that it is easy on the blender as dry roots tend to kill juicers and blenders easily. So keeping the garlic bulbs wet and soft is good for the juicer)

4. Now juice the garlic

5. The juice is the magic and this is now going to be placed in a jar and put in the fridge .

6. Write a label with the date you made the garlic and what it is…. Then place a lid o the jar and pop in fridge. You can start using straight away. Make a big batch as you will love this one so much and it just gets better with time.  You can leave this in the fridge and keep toping up with fresh garlic juice… The older the batch the better. Its timeless…

Make some and send me the. pics… love this one so much.

Our next workshop is on July 29th in Maleny. We will be making Herbal medicines for skin care and wellness. This includes skin conditions and arthritis and pain relief.

Whats the best plan to stay well right now? 

How are you feeling now? really do you feel balanced and stable in your body? Or are you feeling somewhat vulnerable and compromised? Its autumn time and we are right in the middle of metal season. Its when you feel sluggish, unstable and its a time of change in  weather plus  our personal lives. Lots of people are feeling flu like symptoms, unmotivated, sluggish and slowing down with our metabolism setting up for wintertime hibernation.

This is  a time to slow down, go with the flow and allow your body the time it needs to relax, tune in and rest.  Its the time to eliminate what no longer works for you. Cutting through the rubbish and keeping the goodness. Great time of the year to clear out your wardrobe, cupboards and storage areas. Get rid of that old stuff and make way for a clear space for yourself. Simplify everything.. bring it right down to the basics!

The herbals that we like at this time of the year are nourishing, clearing, boosting and generally energising and metabolism enhancing. We need these qualities, so taking echinacea is my favourite. It works on the whole body. Ganoderma mushroom and all of the mushrooms generally have a great effect at this time of the year as they clear your liver and boost your immunity. Nettle is perfect to boost your blood and increase red blood cells function, allowing clear circulation and really oxygenated blood.  Kelp, seaweeds and lots of mineralising herbals are our favourites because they support and nourish your whole body.

The foods to eat are loaded with garlic and onion.  Lots of boosting and strengthening qualities that help you stay healthy. Have you made our garlic extract yet? we have several versions of garlic extractions with the best being our aged garlic formula. This one is easy to make at home and great for the whole family to use during wintertime.  The recipe is in my book The Wellness Zone available online for download. Or come to our workshop on Sunday and make some yourself!

Talk with us if we can help you with herbals now. We offer free phone services through the week, so call up and chat for fifteen minutes about your health and let us get a plan in place,  If you want a more consolidated session then you can book  a Skype consult ( with free freight for any herbals you want) or come to Maleny and see me for a classic naturopathic clinic in our dispensary and meet the crew!

 

Herbal Body therapies

Herbal skin care is so healthy for us to do on a regular basis. How do you look after your skin? what do you do on a regular basis to create nourishment from the outside?

This is metal time of the year, Its when the weather gets cooler and drier. Its when you become tireder and have less energy for the things you were motivated to do in the warmer months. So with our skin, lets get it nourished with herbals and oils, soak up the minerals and allow your skin some great boosting. The herbals for this are calendula, allow vera, comfrey, chickweed, papaya, avocado, olives and aromatherapeutic oils that bring in antimicrobial and immune boosting qualities such as rose, lavender and jasmine.

Nourish your skin daily with some herbal oils and also make sure you get lots of hydration on your skin with warm pea treatments, such as sauna to detox the cells,  exfoliation hydro therapies such as flu body exfoliation in mineral salts followed by a full hot bath.  Also nourishing your skin everyday before sleep with good monounsaturated oils. lush and delicious skin therapy at home is easy. We have a workshop coming up on July 29th in Maleny if you are interested.

Our Food Lotus system for your digestive wellness!

THE FOOD LOTUS EATING SYSTEM FOR YOUR DIGESTIVE WELLNESS

Hello my friends. Ok today I want you to meet my food lotus system. Its simple and doable and a great way to eat. I like to eat this way and it really helps my body stay healthy when I do.

This is my ideal way to eat and its how I recommend you eat too. Its simple, natural and if you do this most of the time, you will be healthy, resilient and strong.

Let me introduce you to my lotus flower eating system! 

Think about a lotus flower and how it opens up in the day and closes down in the night. When it opens in the morning it takes in little nourishment, then as the day progresses it takes its full fill of sunlight and openness when the sun is at its highest…. then you can eat your main meal and then as the day goes to night the lotus closes off again, so you would stop eating again for the night and then wait a full 12 to 16 hours before you eat again.

Combine this divine timing with a balanced diet and you can join me in eating like a lotus flower!

 By balanced diet I mean that you can follow my personal food lotus system

50% is  biggest section which is fresh fruits and vegetables, this also includes complex carbohydrates from plant based sources such as breads, pasta and rice!

next I have quality protein sources  which is 30%  such as tofu, tempeh, eggs, fresh local meats if you eat them, fresh local seafoods if you eat them, protein powders. cheese, yoghurt,  hemp seeds, specific protein combinations in vegan and veg diets that make up complete protein. Nut milks, milks generally if you drink them. All of these are optional depending on your personal choices.

Then we have oils and fatty acids which can be about 10 %  like chia seeds, monounsaturated fatty oils, plant based essential fatty acids, omega 3, 6, 9 in ratio of two x omega three to 1 x other two. coconut oils.  you need fatty acids in your diet… so make it 10% including what you cook in and what you add to salad dressings, sauces etc. Don’t count your protein choices such as cheese in here please. make this section the good oils!

And we have our favourite herbals which make up 10% of your diet. This is all those fresh herbs from the garden and conscious additions of medicinal herbals and spices to your diet.  Yes I’ve added in the turmeric, garlic, ginger, chilli, basil, parsley, thyme, rosemary, spices, and all those wonderful things we add to our diet to keep us healthy. And, if you read my books you will know what to do with them all and turn them into awesome healthy vinegars, oils, salts, honeys etc etc…. so delish.  This also includes herbals in teas and drinks. Herbal extractions come into this part too. Adding little shots of herbals into your meal plans and taking some before dinner as a digestive bitters, taking some before bed to help you relax, taking some in the morning to strengthen you body.. its important.

Now the raw to cooked ratio changes with the seasons , as as the weather gets colder many of my patients are sitting at a 50% raw to cooked ratio at the moment. Keep that up as long as you can and have raw fruits and vegetables each day making up 50% of your diet. You can decrease this as the weather becomes cooler or on really cold days and go into the warm nourishment of cooked foods.

Personally I am always at my physical strongest when I have regular detox days and fasting days in water, after I finish the detox and return to a really good diet, I feel stronger and more resilient than before the detox. Its pretty simple to work out why that is… its because I have moved out toxins and freed my body to feel clean and clear. That is physically, mentally and emotionally.

Having a balanced diet that feels good to you. Make everything you eat a feel good food. It can be nurturing, nourishing, delicious and clean food. Keep away from packaged foods, things that come in plastic wrapping and especially those dreaded preservatives and additives that make fresh food last ten times its normal shelf life. Be super careful with breads that you buy and also anything thats been on a long transport chain. I know this advice is fairly normal all year around, but right now we want develop our resilience and fresh is best!

Make your portion sizes reasonable and not too big. Think about your fist clenched and thats the size of your stomach when you have chewed your food and swallowed it… thats not that much. so you are better eating smaller portions and more often.. then you get to enjoy every mouth full and your body gets to assimilate it better, making awesome healthy cells.

Hope you enjoy trying this way of eating. Please chat with us about his system when we see each other next. Or you can book a Skype consult with me online if you are not living near Sunshine Coast Australia.

Immune boosting vegetable coconut soup

Immune boosting vegetable coconut soup

Hello and welcome to my blog, 

Today I want to share with you my recipe for a delicious warming soup.

Immune Boosting vegetable coconut soup 

What you need 

Your favourite soup pot.  I’m using a 8 litre pot for this ratio of ingredients.

Enough fresh raw vegetables to 3/4 fill the pot when they are peeled and cut into bite size pieces. These include carrots, pumpkin, onion, sweet potatoes, peas, cabbage, broccoli, beans, whatever you have in the garden.

5 cloves garlic

1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes or chilli to taste

1 tablespoon Golden Zing Tea formula. Contains turmeric, ginger and black pepper.

1/2 cup of cashew nuts or nuts of your choice.

3 tablespoons monounsaturated oil such as olive oil or macadamia nut oil.

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoons sea salt ( or more or less. salt to taste)

1 litre of coconut milk liquid.

How to make soup

Heat pot on stove with slices of garlic, olive oil, sea salt, golden zing mix, chilli, and allow to soften for a few minutes. Then add the peeled and cut up vegetables all together and stir.

Allow the vegetables to simmer in the pot for about fifteen to twenty minutes, stirring occasionally.

Then pour in the coconut milk making sure it covers the vegetables. Add in the cashew nuts and apple cider vinegar at this stage too.  Place a lid on the pot. Turn the heat right down so its gently simmering.

Allow to simmer on the stove stirring for about one or two hours. You can leave it simmering for up to three hours before you eat this soup, it just gets softer and more yummy.

Add more flavours you like to this soup if desired. And also add freshly sliced shallots, parsley, mint and fresh herbs when you serve.

Today we are serving this soup with some delicious warm cheesy gluten free muffins and having a glass of wine too!

How does this soup boost your immunity?

The garlic is super healthy as we know it purifies blood and strengthens the body, its a cardio tonic and also is a super antioxidant.

Most vegetables have immunity in themselves. Yes its true, plants have their own immunity to fight bugs and diseases and when we eat vegetables we are generally boosting our own immunity too. The  autumn winter vegetables choices of brassicas, such as Brussel sprouts, cabbage, broccoli and rocket all have immune boost and antioxidant properties. Onions are my favourite with silicylic acid that pulls poisons and foreign particles out of the body cleansing and strengthening the body. When we add chilli we are striping poisons such as viruses, and toxins from the digestive tract every time we eat chilli. We are also boosting our metabolism which in turn has a faster reaction rate to toxins and that means when we have a faster metabolism we have a faster reaction time with our immune system. No sluggishness. Ginger and turmeric have super antioxidant effects and help the liver cope much better with detoxification. Every vegetable soup you make is a winner. The cashew nuts are some good protein in there to help balance the soup and adding coconut milk is a winner for flavour, strengthening and nourishing your body and protecting your cells from damage as we eat this antioxidant rich soup.

The benefits of understanding your body and herbal medicines!

Hello and welcome to my newsletter. 

Summertime is clearly over, I love to  talk seasons with these newsletters, seasonal foods, medicines and lifestyle choices.  My work comes from many cultures and I have been privileged to be born with an inquiring mind, so I am always open to learning new ways to be whole and healthy! Its my pleasure to share my work with you and I am grateful that you are reading this newsletter again. We have many people subscribing these days, and whether you came from our free clinics in the markets or a festival, an event where I presented, a clinical consultation or if I dragged you in here at some point because you are my friend I want to say a big Thank you for making time for my writings and also my workshops and events. We are here to help you so please call us and chat, email or come to the markets or festivals, these are all free services and our pleasure to offer you.

Its metal time now… yes that autumn and it means the season of boosting your immunity, getting strong for winter and cutting off the old dead branches on those trees ! In more ways than one. Its time to get rid of our bad habits, our over indulgences, our summertime diet is over. Now we are into the colour white and the bitter foods. Its seaweed time,  antioxidant time and white food time! We can use heavy metal chelators in our diet specifically so that we are able to clear the debris and toxins out of our cells and clean up our act!

Good old garlic… so healthy, delicious and full of wholesome medicine. for strengthening the body, for immunity, for parasites, cardiovascular protection and keeps your blood strong and clean! 

The White tiger is a symbol of this season in traditional Chinese medicine. So is the mirror  for self reflection and reflection of our environment and the sword for cutting away those dead branches. Yes, you guessed it. Fierceness in letting go of the non essential. Instead of spring cleaning, we are autumn cleaning. But in a different way. Its a great time if the year to fast on water and juices for a weekend! Its a wonderful time of the year to stoke up your body with garlic, onions, white foods, and foods that help boost your body making you stronger and having the attitude of fierce healthiness! Having the discipline in your mind to  clean up and clear out negative patterns, old outdated beliefs. Its the time of the year to forgive your misgivings, to let the past go and start afresh with a good attitude towards life.

The body organs associated with this season are the lungs and the large intestine. So lets go for exercises and practices that strengthen the lungs, such as loads of pranayama breathing. walking or jogging briskly and breathing deeply into the lungs. Also adding minerals in your diet such as iron to help move the red blood cells laden with oxygen through your beautiful body.

The large intestine loves to be released of parasites and also to be strengthened with antioxidants at this time of the year. The pockets in the large intestine play an important role in toxicity of the body,  we can reabsorb toxins back into the system or  eliminate them with our faeces. So  I recommend that you eat dark foods that are full of antioxidants here, like beetroot and berries and dragonfruit. Really rich foods in antioxidants. Betaine is the active in beetroot and specific to the large intestine.  The red ones are specific to this time of the year in many cultures as the seasonal foods are our indicator. Also pumpkin seeds are full of anti parasitic qualities.

Think antioxidants.. think red… Lycopene is an active in cooked tomatoes, and this time of the year is perfect for tomato soups, sauces and those preserved and sun dried tomatoes you made in the summer time. Isn’t that beautiful… the foods we traditionally preserve in one season for the next are the ones we need! Lycopene is very good for your blood and your blood responds to it so well  transporting  all over the body. Super immunity support. 

The herbs I recommend for this time of the year from our dispensary to your home care kits  are perfect support and a great aid to your wellness! 

Herbal immunity blend for the whole family. Take a small dose each day to school or work in your water bottle and beat the seasonal infections by staying strong and having a stronger physical resilience.

Iodine metabolism blend. For balancing the metabolism and helping you reduce heavy metals in the body. Take  your therapeutic dose each morning and help eliminate those extra kilos that gather over the summertime. This blend also helps with digestive balance and goes deeply into cells to help you clear out the poisons that may have accumulated in the whole body, it really gets into the lungs and pockets in large intestine removing poisons and strengthening your body.

Herbal Parasite Blend Remove parasites and help your immunity by lightening up the load. There are parasites in all systems of our body at times and this is the perfect time of the year to say Bye Bye!

ADVOCATING YOUR OWN WELLNESS AND UNDERSTANDING YOUR BODY AND HERBAL MEDICINES

Feel wholesome, well and comfortable in your own skin. This is our  natural state of being, its where we came from. the healthiness and nurturing of our mothers wombs and then into this clean beautiful world where we naturally resonate to eating fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and natural foods. We feel more at home in natural green environments, our stress levels drop and our body feels more intrinsically peaceful and whole. This is our natural state.

So its natural then that we will feel healthier and more balanced when we eat a plant based diet and when we look at our food as medicine.  Its  our best absorbed medicine and its also the most natural way to stay healthy as we live with a good diet and know our body. This is a great time to redefine your diet. To talk with us about how we can assist you in dietary refinements that happen in little steps so that its easy and fun!

Knowing our body is something we need to explore more as we get older!  To do this we need good exercise,  fresh air and a good diagnostic system to understand whats going on and how to treat minor symptoms as they come up. Why not have a regular health check? Having a regular health check is invaluable when it comes to prevention of chronic disease and reducing your risk factors for cardiovascular diseases, cancers, diabetes, obesity, and auto immune conditions that can be epigenetic and created by the environments we live in.

My books The Wellness Zone and The Magic of Food as Medicine are great resources to help you refine and develop your health plans. They are $5 each online as ebooks. On my web site. Or you can talk with me, either via Skype, or via our free clinics when we pop up in The Eumundi Market every Saturday or at Festivals and events.  If you want to chat about your health you can always call our clinic between Tuesday and Friday and thats also a free service as we can assist with Herbal solutions and general naturopthaic advice. Its our loving service and we are here to help you. Our resources are very broad and our networks wide. So call us when you need that extra bit of advice or herbal solutions.

THERAPEUTIC YOGA TO HEAL YOUR WHOLE BODY

I’ve just had the privilege of attending some really great therapeutic training with Gwyn Williams on Zen Thai flow  and  the 5 Chinese elements. This work involves designing your daily yoga practice to incorporate the seasons and the specific meridians and body organs that are related to that season or more interestingly in the therapeutic model… if you are having issues with specific organs or body systems then you are able to do your yoga practice focusing on these ailments and using yoga as very specific therapy. Its great. You may know that my work involves Zen Thai shiatsu body work and yoga, I did the full training with Gwyn and this was my second round on this  yoga flow training.  I’m looking forward to bringing some of this into my next workshop on May 25th in Maleny.
