This winner smoothie has been keeping me going this week around a very busy and active time! Keep your physical busy refuelled with the ' Queen of Greens' KALE 

Green smoothies are a hit in the Raw food world, and kale, the most nutritious of greens, provides large 
quantities of anti-oxidants and other beneficial nutrients.

1 cup (1 oz/30 g) English spinach, rinsed, dried and chopped
1 banana, chopped
1 in (2.5 cm) ginger root
1 tablespoon chia seeds 
Juice of 1⁄2 lemon 
Pour the water into a blender or food processor, and add the remaining ingredients. Process or blend 
until smooth.

Kale is high in calcium.  Per calorie, kale has more calcium than milk, which aids in preventing bone loss, preventing osteoporosis and maintaining a healthy metabolism. Vitamin C is also helpful to maintain cartilage and joint flexibility, in which we all need as we age! 

 Kale is a great detox food.  Kale is filled with fiber and sulfur, both great for detoxifying your body and keeping your liver healthy. Given the environment we live in today's works we need to be constantly detoxing our system,

Another great way to constantly detoxing your system is the practice of YOGA & MEDITATION. Coming soon to KARRATHA. Book today, a 3 day event not to be missed.

The Raw Food Healing  Journey

I started my Raw food journey more than four years ago and the difference in how I feel has completely transformed my body, life and mind.

Since stepping outside my comfort zone and embracing a more creative style of food preparation,
I’ve come to enjoy and appreciate natural food and its awesome healing power. Raw food gives body unlimited energy, generating happiness that I am blessed to experience. I feel transformed and want to share the benefits that I enjoy with you.

Today’s world has become so busy that we often don’t realise that we are not looking after our body and digestive system as best as we can. I believe that it is critical to listen to our body and to learn how to feed yourself in a way that nurtures both body and mind, restores our equilibrium and rejuvenates us, so that we benefit from optimum health.

The recipes you learn in my book and on my Retreat  have been designed to accelerate your energy levels and to
promote your sense of well being, so that you have the energy to create a healthy, balanced lifestyle and live your busy life.

Raw Food Benefits

I believe that taking care of yourself is the best insurance that you can have for a vibrant life full of joy and happiness, and that eating a good diet, whole foods  rich in vitamins and minerals, will help to promote good health.

For me, a Raw food lifestyle begins with reassessing the basic foods provided for us by nature. In order to do that, I believe that it is essential to strip out of our diets all foods that are processed or packaged, loaded with artificial flavour enhancers and sweeteners and which are devoid of nutritional value.

Nature provides us with a whole array of healthy foods, which, when incorporated into our diet, provides us with vitality, good health and energy. These foods can offer a perfect nutritional package.

When eaten Raw, we benefit from the maximum nutritional value that each of these foods offers.
I believe that ‘living’ foods – meaning those that grow in the ground – are our life force. By
integrating living foods into our diets, we can look forward to wellness, greater energy, mental clarity, a positive outlook on life and spiritual awakening.

When you eat Raw food, you’ll notice that you don’t need to eat so much, or need to eat the
heavier foods that you previously desired. Lighter food makes us feel lighter and more energized.
You’ll never feel as if you are on a diet when eating this way. On our Retreat you learn how to heal your body from within and how to make RAW FOOD recipes, practice daily Yoga Meditation, health and wellness workshops and more.
