WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MYLK + DARK NAKED CHOCOLAT?

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MYLK + DARK NAKED CHOCOLAT? We receive many emails at The Healthy Chef regarding the difference between our Mylk and Dark Naked Chocolat powders. This is a great question as many of our customers love chocolate but don’t know what flavour they will enjoy the most. If you’ve read my recent post about The Healing Power Of Chocolate, you will know that I’ve used only the highest grade of premium cocoa for Naked Chocolat. This means that you’re... Read More

THE HEALING POWER OF CHOCOLATE

When I became a chef, most of my time was spent working in the pastry kitchen. We had an exclusive temperature controlled chocolate room with marble bench tops for tempering and chocolate making. I took pleasure in creating treats such as red velvet chocolate cake and decadent chocolate soufflé for the fine dining restaurant, and it would always wow anyone eating it. My love affair with chocolate didn’t stop there. I love nothing more than indulging in a little chocolate... Read More

Body Shaping Plan: Week 1

Welcome to my special series of Body Shaping – a 4 week plan to help support your body shaping and weight loss goals. I find that so many people are looking for a quick-fix to lose weight, which can often lead to following diets that are not sustainable, too restrictive and overlook possibly the most balanced and realistic advice: sticking to fresh whole foods most of the time – your 80% – and allowing for a bit of indulgence now and then – your 20%. This... Read More

How To Stay Healthy When Travelling

These days, I tend to travel quite a bit – not only for work, but to visit my family in WA. Eating well and staying healthy while travelling can be a little tricky, but after years of travelling, I’ve learnt how to incorporate a few packing essentials and rituals into my routine (both on the plane and when I get to my destination) that help keep me energised, hydrated and free from the dreaded jet lag. Make the most of your trip with my top practices for healthy travel: BOOKING ACCOMMODATION… I... Read More

My Most Effective Body Shaping Secrets

I’ve been into fitness and healthy cooking my whole life and over time I’ve come to realise it’s not all about doing ballistic workouts to achieve overall fitness and body shaping. In my 20s and 30s I used to do weight training, road cycling, kickboxing, submission wrestling, surf lifesaving and I’d be hitting the gym most days of the week. No wonder I was so tired, anxious and not digesting and absorbing my nutrients properly! These days I’m more into Pilates... Read More

How To Get Glowing Skin

I believe that food is most healing when it has properties to repair and nourish the body, while still being purely delicious to eat. Unfortunately, many people can get caught up on the latest superfood or diet trend that they can overlook the simplest ingredients necessary for vibrant health and glowing skin. One of these is protein. Protein is the key nutrient for ageless, beautiful skin. Your skin, hair and nails are made up of protein, so it’s important to include it in... Read More

My Favourite Anti-Ageing Superfoods

We all know that too much sugar, saturated fat, processed foods and alcohol can cause chronic inflammation, which is the body’s way of addressing imbalances and illness in the body. In turn, this can speed up the ageing process and leave you feeling run down and tired. This is why I’m a big advocate of getting my anti-ageing nutrients from the foods I eat. When I’m eating good food, looking after myself and keeping my stress levels under control, it’s reflected in... Read More

My 7 Steps To Better Health

It’s no surprise most of my time revolves around healthy food. If I’m not creating recipes, hosting a cooking masterclass, or designing the next product for my functional food range, I’m recipe testing for my next meal or writing a chapter for my next book. Having to build my business and work crazy hours means a healthy work-life balance is a big challenge. With this, I’ve come to realise that health is not only about feeding your body healthy nourishing foods. Health... Read More

How To Have Chocolate For Breakfast

While chocolate is often eaten as a treat or for dessert, I love how you can actually have chocolate for breakfast, too! Yes I’m a bit of a chocaholic and love to submit my taste buds to some chocolate therapy any time of day.  I love using ingredients such as my Naked Chocolat Mylk because you’re getting a dose of antioxidants, minerals and health-promoting compounds that just taste delicious. So if you’re craving for something healthy and chocolatey, this super... Read More

Feel-Good Foods To Fight Stress

Those that know me would probably describe me as being highly strung, driven, a workaholic, anxious, creative and always on move.  I guess it’s just been part of my nature from when I was growing up, I even remember asking my aunt to knit me a jumper with the words ‘JUST RELAX’ on the front. When I feel like I’m working myself to the ground, my immune system weakens, energy levels plummet and my digestive health just doesn’t function properly. My cortisol... Read More

7 Steps To Get Your Beauty Sleep

These days, I have to really focus on getting enough sleep to get me through my busy week. I have a tendency to be a bit of a workaholic….writing emails or blog posts at 10 pm at night and then dragging myself out from bed at 5 or 6 am the next morning just to get my day started.  It’s certainly not good for my health and if I do this too often and my body let’s me know by weakening my immune system and removing that outward glow I strive for. Getting adequate... Read More

Supercharge Your Immune System Naturally

Food is one of the most powerful tools we have to help prevent disease and a healthy body begins with a healthy immune system.  It maintains homeostasis by defending against viruses and bacteria which can cause inflammation in the body, illness and disease. Our body also produces antibodies that can help destroy the virus and assist our body to heal. Nutritional deficiencies can impair immune function, increasing both the risk and severity of infection. Vitamin C, for... Read More
