Below I have quickly looked at the 3 macronutrient food groups, plus alcohol.

Nutrition Seminar Reviews

Nutrition Seminar Reviews

Morag from Christchurch attended the January 2014 Seminar:


“If you are wanting to change your way of living and to become healthier. Go to this seminar. This has changed my life and results are happening for the first time EVER”



Rebecca from Auckland, May 2014:


“I attended the Auckland Paleo seminar. After having already had some sessions one on one with Sara, I was excited to meet her in person and be in a room with like minded people. The information Sara provided in the seminar was great for anyone just starting out on the Paleo lifestyle or for someone like me who just needed to have the information I already had, cemented more firmly. It was great to be able to ask questions as they came up and get a ‘real time’ answer, also hearing questions from other people around things I had never even thought of! Sara is down to earth and ‘real’, she really knows her stuff and also understands the reality and pressures of life. Hearing about Elora’s weight loss was inspiring! I came away feeling more motivated and determined. Definitely worth every cent!!”



Lindi from Wellington, June 2014: 


“Thanks for the informative and inspiring seminar, I walked out ready to make this change happen”



Jackie from Wellington, June 2014:

"Since your seminar, I have lost 3 kilos in 3 weeks, including the week before my period - which is normally a write off weight loss wise!! And it has been easy as, with absolutely no feelings of deprivation at all." 
 


Iona from Christchurch, September 2014:

"I went to the Christchurch Seminar last night (a friend won two tickets) WOW! Brilliant and although I had already started eating whole unprocessed foods and eliminating refined sugar (for two weeks) after watching Nigel Latta's documentary on sugar; it was great to further educate myself on eating better and to have a better relationship with food. I have been a struggling/failing dieter for the past 20+ years and have probably done just about every 'diet' on the market and have probably spent over $1000+ on plans that just don't work in the long run. I have found over the last two weeks a reduction in abdominal bloating and increased satiety. I look forward to getting back to a healthy weight. Thank you Sara and Elora :)"

Paleo Bread Recipe

So simple to make, you will wonder why you haven't made it before....

Paleo Bread Recipe
One of the most requested recipes in the 'Paleo' world is that of bread. What always annoyed me about most recipes was that the used vast quantities of almond flour or butter, which made them very expensive. So I have created a bread recipe that was not only crazy simple to make but affordable.

This bread is gluten free, grain free and dairy free. Give it a go!

Perfect Peppermint Slice

Perfect Peppermint Slice
I love Peppermint Slice so tasty - I think this will be a regular in my house.

This recipe is made with Coconut Oil and therefore has loads of fantastic health benefits, plus has no refined sugar in it. It will melt if left out of the fridge though so make sure you eat it up quick - but I'm sire that won't be a problem!

Reduce sugar cravings and emotional eating!

"Am I hungry?"

Reduce sugar cravings and emotional eating!

It's biologically, we are designed to seek out sugar. Before the advent of processed foods, sugars only came in the forms of fruit and vegetables. Going out for a walk and finding a fruit tree was a true treat, and we would sit and devour as much as we could! Particularly in preparation for winter.

Now - sugar is everywhere. It's in your cereals, breads, cakes, lollies, sauces, yogurts, chocolate, premade meals, canned goods and pretty much everything else in packets. You get a little and your brain just wants more and more!!! So, how can we reduce those cravings?

Free from gluten, dairy, refined sugars plus paleo friendly

Savoury Muffins
I am dairy free and I miss a good tasty savoury muffin! Yumm cheese and bacon muffins.....

Here is my variation of a savoury muffin that has no dairy - of course, if cheese doesn't bother you then adding some cheese on top is a great idea.

Tracy and Stephen's Story

“It has been fantastic, loved it, and it was easy. 

Both Stephen and I have really enjoyed it, it has challenged our thinking about traditional food guidelines and recommendations, helped us become more organised and I feel that my weight loss goals are achievable, it just doesn’t seem that daunting or overwhelming now."

Vanilla Berry Muffins

Gluten, dairy and refined sugar free, Paleo friendly

Vanilla Berry Muffins

I'm always on the hunt for an easy, cost effective muffin that all kids will like - even those who are used to 'normal' store purchased muffins. This recipe is a great transition muffin recipe for when you are removing refined sugars from your diet. It has loads of good fats to keep your kids full plus just enough sweetness so they won't know it's good for them!
