Neural Manipulation- A new technique offered at the Clinic

Food for mood | Raw Chocolate Cheesecake

Yes you heard me right, a healthy chocolate cheesecake (sugar free, dairy free & gluten free), that not only tastes great but has the added benefits of lifting your mood. Cashews are loaded with lots of nutrients that can boost serotonin levels and help fight depression. Serotonin is responsible for the feeling of well-being and relaxation, while the raw cacao in this cheesecake also helps improve and increase a persons circulating serotonin levels.

Paleo Lemon Slice

A few weekends ago, my dad came home with a massive bag full of meyer lemons. For all the cooks out there, you would know that these lemons are really great for cooking in sweets. So it was my challenge to make something yummy and healthy with dad’s lemon bounty. What was made was a delicious refined sugar free, gluten free, paleo lemon slice.

Carrot & Superfood Cupcakes

This week I had to take the day off to nurse my little kitten back to health (complications from her operation), so found myself house bound with ingredients in the kitchen that needed to be used up. What better excuse to make something gluten free, refined sugar free, tasty and good for you. So here is my recipe straight from the ABHS Kitchen.

Paleo Chocolate Cake

Our Paleo Naturopath Samantha this week experimented in the kitchen and came up with this very yummy, gluten free, dairy free and sugar free paleo chocolate cake. Yes the ingredient list does look a little weird, however we can promise you that this is the most moist chocolate cake you have ever tasted which is 100% guilt free.

Gluten: What’s all the fuss?

Most Australian’s would realise by now (I hope), that a steady diet of cheeseburgers and soft drinks will not lead to a happy and healthy life. What some of you might not know, is that there is another offender that most of us would never suspect to be causing problems. That silent villain is gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and spelt. Gluten basically gives these foods their elasticity and acts a bit like glue in the bowels.

Your Kitchen: the real medicine chest

Tuesday night’s event was a hit. I feel that everyone who attended learnt at least one new thing that they did not know about how food can be used as medicine. Twenty people attended our booked out event and not only learnt about which foods can be used as medicine but also took home some lovely goodies from our sponsors.
