    Post #100: Why looking after your spinal health is important

    I’m so excited, this is the 100th post on The Wellness Plate! After starting this blog in September last year, I had a good feeling that it would be the one that would stuck, and I’m happy to say it will be around for a long time 🙂 Today I’m going to talk about one of my biggest passions, and the single thing that decidedly moved me from wanting to be a mainstream Medical Doctor, to wanting to be a holistic Dietitian and Wellness Practitioner. Today I’ll be talking about Chiropractic and spinal health. My wellness journey started as a single job application among hundreds. When I arrived to Australia fresh…

    Live below the line: The review

    Day 1: So far, its been smooth sailing, although breakfast was a bit disappointing. Note to self-plain oats with pear and cinnamon sounds nice, but in reality, it still tastes like cardboard. For snacks I had a simple carrot and garlic soup, and raw carrot sticks. I also didn’t eat all the oats for breakfast, so I popped them in the oven for a baked pear and cinnamon crumble (again not so successful, it needs sugar-why did I not think of sugar!). Lunch was a nice big bowl of fried rice, with zucchini, garlic, onion and carrot. Luckily, lunch saved me and was really nice! Dinner was lentil dal with rice and one…

    Book review: Optimal Health the Paleo way-Claire Yates

    This week I finally got around to purchasing a copy of Optimal Health the Paleo way by Claire Yates, and I much say this thing is INCREDIBLE! Its not just a cookbook….Its 143 pages full of scientific based nutritional information, and Claire has presented it in a really easy to understand way. She goes through additives, allergens, hormones, stress, gut health, inflammation, macronutrients, micronutrients, and the list just goes on. I was amazed at just how much love and time Claire has put into this gorgeous work of art. Simply, Claire has summised everything you need to know about nutrition and the role it plays in your health, then gives you…

    Five Friday favourites #3

    Hey all! Its been a slow week here on The Wellness Plate, I have been incredibly busy with work and Uni! Alas, that’s no excuse for a lack of posts 🙂 So here is my roundup of Five of my favourite things from this week. 1. This article about the 11 most destructive nutrition lies ever told. There have been so many nutrition myths told in the past, much of it is misinformation and a lack of research. Some of it is marketing hype or media lies. Anyhow, all of it is destructive and have caused a significant change in the way we eat. Take the eggs myth for example.…

    Five Friday favourites #2

    1. Food that magically regrows itself. I love this, its basically free food. Ok, so you do have to wait for it to grow, but the idea is so great! I might try it with some green onions, they look pretty easy! And I’m amazed at how many foods you can do this with. I’d also love to try the mushrooms and the pineapple! Find the full article here: http://cookingstoned.tv/blog/2014/02/food-that-magically-regrows-itself-from-kitchen-scraps/ 2. Farmers markets I visited my closest farmers market last weekend, and totally loved it! It’s just such a pity its a 25 minute drive away. I love the community atmosphere, getting to know the farmers and stall owners. Plus you…
