Whole food living

Gourmet organic whole foods are a better alternative to conventional products making a difference to your health and the environment.

Whole foods have been processed and refined as little as possible and provide three main benefits:

  1. greater nutrition — a source of complex micro-nutrients
  2. essential dietary fibre
  3. naturally occurring protective substances, ie phytochemicals.
Less processed food = less packaging waste

What is a food dehydrator?

You can create delicious healthy raw food free from preservatives and additives with a high quality dehydrator.

Food drying is an ancient process of preserving food that works by removing the water content that bacteria, yeasts and moulds need to grow. As food dries the natural flavours and sugars concentrate which intensifies the taste, and keeps intact the nutrients and healthy enzymes that are often destroyed by cooking.

Nature's miracle

Coconut oil is a source of instant energy to your body, much like when you eat simple carbohydrates. But although they both deliver quick energy to your body, unlike the carbohydrates, coconut oil does not produce an insulin spike in your bloodstream. This saves you from a slump, and is good news for anyone struggling with insulin issues.

The Coconut Oil Miracle outlines research that found when taken as a dietary supplement, used in cooking, or applied directly to the skin, coconut oil could have many benefits.
