Autumn is here although it is struggling to cool down which is confusing the wildlife, flora and fauna and us. Soon the weather will change and we will settle and start to look inwards as the heat and excitement of summer fade. As we contemplate and reflect we get to shed some of whats old and not serving us. Just like our skin renews we are renewing our energy, thoughts, ideas etc. This is the season of letting go. If we don't let go ready for deep reflection and renewal we can become very stuck and rigid, not a very fun or expansive state to be in.

Sometimes we are held to be a certain way by our own ideas of ourselves or the opinions of others, we think we can't move but we can . We are not held or bound to be anything, we can change and continue to follow our ethics, morals and values, they are a constant.

I invite you to challenge yourself to release things, possessions, thoughts, actions, ideas that you no longer think fit with who you are or who you want to be. Its a little scary and unknown to release parts of us that we don't need or want. We are always changing which keeps us dynamic and malleable and its exciting. Go ahead challenge yourself to let go of something and grow...

Health Matters


How to quit sugar and why quit sugar?


Most of us have heard about quitting sugar, how sugar is bad for us, Sarah Wilsons book etc. Sugar is very controversial and there are many views on its health issues. Generally the more processed a food is the more toxic and harmful it becomes for our body.

If you think that we are what we eat, then refined white sugar is pretty poisonous consumed regularly. I have recently been on a cleanse which has extended into a way eating as its been 90 days since I started it! One of the most beneficial things Ive experienced whilst cleansing has been quitting sugar.

Some benefits of quitting sugar are;

  • Increased energy
  • Healthier and less processed diet
  • Weight loss
  • Improved sleep
  • Increased concentration
  • Clearer eyes and skin
  • Reduced inflammation i.e. helpful for, joint aches and pains, skin issues such as eczema, psoriasis, dandruff, arthritis, chronic pain etc
Many studies have been done sadly with rats to show that sugar is more addictive than cocaine. Sugar is highly addictive! We need to look at why we want it in our lives and what its satisfying i.e. a form of relaxation, having it when there is a lack of love and affection, hormonal and emotional cravings, a 'pick me up' etc.

Refined sugars release quickly, making sugars in our blood spike and then drop dramatically. This effects our mood and concentration and we end up regularly looking for sugar to lift us up. only to feel worse in the long run.

In my experience sugar withdrawal takes about 7-10 days and after that it becomes much easier.

Sweetness in life is important and necessary and one of the six tastes in Ayurvedic medicine. We all want to be able to enjoy sweetness at times and how do we make healthy choices for our body and mind?
  • Go cold turkey!
  • Start reading ingredients lists on the food you buy
  • Experiment with sugar free cooking and recipes
  • Give yourself permission to sometimes have deserts i.e. Panna cotta (see recipe below), Goody balls, Banana cake with dates, almond meal, coconut oil and eggs, there are many to choose from. Try not to have sweets every day though.
  • Use fresh dates, dried fruits, maple syrup, occasionally honey or coconut nectar (Easter I had a piece of raw organic chocolate sweetened with coconut nectar, a real treat!)
Give it a go and good luck...

Dragon fruit Panna Cotta
Dairy, grain, nut and refined sugar free
I have made with strawberries instead of dragon fruit on the top, so anything goes.

Serves 2
Quick and easy
Ingredients

  • 400ml can of coconut milk
  • 5.5 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 3/4 tsp agar agar flakes or approximately 3/4 tsp agar agar powder

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1.5 tsp corn flour
  • I added a vanilla bean stick

Instructions

Panna Cotta
  1. Heat coconut milk on medium heat
  2. Add agar agar & 3 tbls maple syrup
  3. Sir to combine. Once mixture heats up (don't boil) turn to low and simmer for 5-7 minutes until agar agar dissolves. Keep stirring often.
  4. Pour into glasses or glass jars - Cool and place in fridge
  5. Can be eaten cold or at room temperature, which is what I prefer.
Dragon Fruit Sauce
  1. Chop up dragon fruit and cook on a medium heat with remaining 2.5 tbs of maple syrup
  2. Add 1/4 cup water and come to a boil, cook until soft and then mash.
  3. Add corn flour and 1/4 cup water in separate bowl then stir into cooked dragon fruit and mix
  4. Simmer for 2 minutes until thickened.
