60 day challenge : 60 days & beyond!

In all honesty this has felt like the 60 days that never ended!  There was that little pause around week 6 where I took a break because of illness, and then I reached a point where I was just sick of talking about it and the thought of sitting down to write this update sounded […]

60 day challenge : 49 days

On the main page of this 60 day challenge I’ve given you links to the various websites I’ve used for information, recipes and encouragement during this Paleo / Primal experiment.  But I thought I should turn the spotlight to my go-to Paleo / Primal library – the books that have really shaped the way I’ve […]

60 day challenge : 42 days

Today marks the day that my 60 day challenge would have officially ended if I didn’t take a 2 week pause due to illness.  So as of today I’ve got 14 days to go! I’ve actually found it really hard to focus on my food this week.  For example, it turns out that my foot […]

60 day challenge : a little time out

Call off the search party!  I’m no longer missing in action.  I know it’s been a while since my last post but I have very good reason.  Let’s just say that the last 2 weeks have been a combination of incredible highs and significant lows.  The high points?  Attending my first paid gig as a […]

60 day challenge : 35 days

I ate chocolate cake.  Twice. And do I regret it?  Absolutely not. The first time I ate cake was while my two boys helped me make my husband’s 40th birthday cake.  They squealed with excitement in the kitchen as they licked spoonfuls of whipped, buttery, chocolate icing.  So I did what any self-respecting, life-loving mother […]

Low carb tuna bake

I absolutely loved this.  Really. If you’re not a fan of tuna you’re probably turning away in disgust right now, but if you don’t mind the fishy stuff then you’ll love this too.  I’ve had this recipe in my ‘to try’ pile for a very long time and now I wish I had made it […]

60 day challenge : 28 days

Four weeks in and I feel like this healthstyle is becoming quite a simple part of my everyday life.  These words may come back to bite me in a few weeks if I find myself struggling, but it just seems to be getting easier.  This week included 3 different social situations where I was eating […]

60 day challenge : 21 days

I don’t think I can recall a time in my life where I came home from a holiday feeling lighter and healthier for it.  Usually holidays are a time for me to let loose and over indulge, but not this time.  I can say with confidence that even through 4 flights, multiple family gatherings, extraordinarily […]

Chia, coconut & spinach smoothie

Ch-ch-ch-chia! Green spinach might not sound like your ideal smoothie flavour, but between the coconut milk and the vanilla you won’t even be thinking about the spinach. I’ve been eating chia seeds for a while now but if they’re a new food for you the texture of the wet seeds might take a little getting […]

60 day challenge : 14 day recap

I feel like I’ve had a pretty good week.  Surprisingly (for me) I haven’t given into temptation even in the most tempting of situations.  It probably helps that I really believe in the principles of Paleo and Primal lifestyles and really want to give this challenge a red hot go. During the week though I […]
