We got home late from the airport. Baby S was awake and playful, as oppose to us, ready for fall into bed after a wonderful and busy Christmas period with the family. But bed wasn’t going to happen any time soon. So knowing that every extra minute of sleep in the morning would be precious Mr Apothecary took to prepping an Overnight Chia Pudding Continue reading

So the weather has warmed up. And it appears inappropriate to be writing about wintery meals like Osso Bucco when I’m sitting on a balcony overlooking a crowded beach in shorts and a singlet. But I posted the photo of that delightful dish so long ago, and since the blog has been back up and running Continue reading

Raw desserts – a word of advice, and Salted Chocolate Fudge Slice

 

Visit us at www.twoapothecaries.com.au 

Anyone who knows me knows that I have a crazy sweet tooth. I love all things dessert style, and am known to claim I have a second stomach specifically for this purpose. The problem is that generally speaking your mainstream ‘desserts’ go against my ‘Just Eat Real (Whole) Food’ philosophy. So this is why my love affair for raw desserts came about. Rich, nutrient dense, and amazingly delicious.

Having said this however, I do want to stress one very important point – and please keep this in mind Continue reading

Yes, I did have a conversation along similar lines with the first loaf of flax bread I ever made. It all started with my husband, Continue reading

Kale Mango and Pear Salad

I have to be honest – I don’t love kale. I’ve come to eat it because of it’s extraordinary capacity to provide a multitude of vitamins and minerals that is hard to come by in any other single food. I like it now, but like most people, when I started eating it, the flavour and the texture did not scream delicious. So I’ve had to play around with making it more exciting. Continue reading

Coconut Chicken Curry

This has to be one of the easiest, quickest, and most delicious dinners. It’s got lovely lean protein in the form of chicken, and packed with an assortment of colourful vegetables for an abundance of nourishing vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. You can use any veggies of choice of course – the recipe below just includes whatever we happened to have in the fridge on the night I decided to document this!

The other great thing about this dish is it uses tumeric – one of the most amazing herbs Continue reading

To detox, or not to detox… Elimination Channels

Visit us at www.twoapothecaries.com.au

Previously I have outlined my main concerns with using the term ‘detox’ in the article “To detox or not to detox – that is the question”. The points I made were broad due to the fact that they encompass so much detail and I wanted to keep the article succinct to get the message across easily. I realise however, this left them potentially open to question or opposition, so I promised to elaborate further.

Here I would like to go into a little more detail by addressing the second point in that article – the fact that your body detox’s itself via numerous channels of elimination. It will, I hope, Continue reading

To detox or not to detox…. that is the question

Visit us at www.twoapothecaries.com.au

I have been milling over writing this article for a few days, and it’s just not really ‘come’ to me the same way other topics have. But after a meeting this morning with a like minded pharmacist I walked away inspired to get the word out there. So here it is – my professional and scientifically critical approach to ‘doing a detox’.  Continue reading
