Weekly MYTHBUSTER for this week: MYTH: 'So long as you take a probiotic supplement after antibiotics your bowel flora will return to normal' What do you think?
A message for some of us to live our life more in accord with our hearts and souls and not the expectations of the modern world. 'Man, because he sacrifices health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.' The Dalai Lama, supposedly, when asked what 'surprises him the most' — this seems derived from the work of an unknown author circulated as "An Interview with God…"
Turmeric has amazing health benefits ..... but is poorly absorbed. This delicious adaptation of the Ayurvedic recipe provides lots of turmeric and increases absorption with quality fat and a good dose of piperine from black pepper. Try this fabulous recipe from Brendan Penwarden of Healthmasters Live Make Turmeric Paste Mix ½ cup turmeric powder to 1 cup of water and bring to a low simmer. Keep an eye on it, it can boil over quickly and turmeric is not what you want all over your stovetop. Add a tablespoon of coconut oil or butter. Stir for 8-10 minutes and add extra water as required. The consistency should be a soft paste. This is your turmeric paste that you can keep in a glass container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Make Golden Milk To make one cup of golden milk, put one teaspoon of the paste into a saucepan with a level teaspoon of cinnamon powder, half a teaspoon fresh or powdered ginger, one or two whole cloves, and about half a teaspoon of freshly cracked black pepper. Mix well. Pour in 1 cup of your choice of milk and bring to low simmer. Continue to stir for a few minutes. Dissolve in a teaspoon of honey to sweeten and then pour yourself a big mug of delicious nutritiousness.

Weekly Mythbuster: Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs) of vitamins and minerals: are they enough? What do you think: Are RDA’s enough to support optimal health? Or are they more of a ‘Recommended Death Allowance’ enough to stop you keeling over but not necessarily keep you healthy? RDAs are established to protect us from the obvious nutrient deficiency diseases like scurvy. They are, therefore, absolute minimum figures. There is now sufficient evidence to indicate that the genetic diversity within the human population can result in significant differences in individual nutritional requirements. Also, what if you have persistently poor absorption of nutrients, are under stress, have exposure to toxins, drink coffee and alcohol regularly or even are very athletic? Chances are you will need nutrients, possibly well above the RDA’s, to maintain your health.
Weekly MYTHBUSTER: Is weight loss simply a case of eating less calories? This is just wrong. And leads to a lot of misery for many people trying to lose weight. Why? Different foods have different hormonal and metabolic impacts. For example, some foods increase the hormones that promote the feeling of fullness. Some foods increase your metabolic rate while others promote the storage of extra calories as fat. Certain foods contribute to inflammation which can interfere with weight loss. Bottomline: The types of food we eat are just as important, if not more important, than the amount we eat.
Salad of the Week When I was studying Naturopathy on the Gold Coast this recipe was in the newsletter of the health food shop I was working in (in 1999!). I still have it folded into one of my cook books, although I mostly know it by heart. It is a bit unusual and super yummo. Green and Black Salad Ingredients: About 2 cups Arame (a type to seaweed available in most health food or asian shops – soak in hot water for 15 minutes), 1 raw Zucchini (very thinly sliced lengthways), 1 small cucumber (very thinly sliced lengthways ), 1 avocado (thinly sliced), toasted sesame seeds (toast lightly in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Watch closely, they burn easily). Dressing: Tamari (wheat free soy sauce), 1/2 tsp finely grated ginger, dash of lemon juice and light olive oil) Method: Combine all ingredients and dress. Enjoy. Goes well with lightly fried tofu or fish placed on top.
What to put in children's lunch-boxes?? It's back to school....and back to trying to think of something EVERYDAY to pack in your children's lunch box. Something that keeps them interested, is healthy, but not so different that they are teased by their peers. I still rely heavily on the sandwich as a good fallback for my children. Below I have put some tips and ideas together that may help rekindle your lunch box inspirations. Healthy Sandwiches Bread: • As alternatives to white bread try wholemeal spelt or rye breads. • If gluten intolerant try a few different gluten free breads or rolls to find one your children may like. Tips: • Cook a roast dinner Sunday night so you have left over meat for sandwiches during the week • Put softer foods like tomato, pineapple between lettuce and cheese / butter / avocado so the sandwich doesn’t go soggy • For spreads: Avocado, tahini, roast pumpkin, left over gravy, organic butter, hummus, mayonnaise. • Trial new ideas on the kids on weekends, so they don’t go hungry at school • Occasional meats: ham, corned beef, salami – contain nitrates so don’t have regularly • Involve kids in making their own sandwiches. Sandwich ideas • Sandwich tuna (drained of oil) mixed with mayonnaise, lettuce and red onion. • Roast beef with lettuce, onion and tomato sauce • Corned beef with lettuce and pickles • Roast chicken with lettuce, capsicum and mayonnaise. • Pizza Sandwich: Olives, pineapple, cheese, lettuce, capsicum • Roast pumpkin with feta cheese, red onions and black olives. • Cheese with vegemite and tomato • Wrap with lamb, lettuce, tomato, red onion and mint finely chopped with yoghurt. • Sausage sushi: Roll out a slice of bread with a rolling pin or use a wrap. Put on tomato sauce and a lettuce leaf and roll up a sausage in it. Slice lengthwise so it looks like sushi. And remember....if you can't influence your child's lunchtime meals that much..there is always dinner to get their veggie intake up.
