Food Through Photos

One my daily pleasures is to eat online. I don’ mean ordering food online to eat. I mean eating in my mind what my eyes see online.

Eating Al Fresco at Home!

There is no better way to enjoy some fresh, home cooked, Australian summer food than out in the natural elements. In recent years we have moved beyond the extent of our outdoor entertaining being limited to burned sausages on the barbie (thankfully). With a renewed emphasis on fresh, local produce, tenderly cooked meats and delightful dishes full of summer tastes, the Australian outdoor lifestyle is truly one to be envied.

What makes this possible for most people is an outdoor entertaining area at home. Whilst there are plenty of places to go and see, there is nothing like enjoying the great outdoors right at home.

This might be as simple as purchasing a BBQ – such as 4 burner gas BBQ or Weber-style cooker for smoky flavour.

But for full value, many households are exploring the surprisingly affordable al fresco home extensions. Built in a range of finishes and styles these affordable extensions for your home are a perfect way to beautiful outdoors in.

Some things to consider when looking to add a stunning home extension:

  • Consider the layout of your home – where would be the best place to extend? How does this relate to the other activities in the home such as the kitchen.
  • What is your budget? How much can you afford to spend. Is this realistic? Is it too low? Will it be over-capitalising? Find out my researching online before obtaining quotes.
  • Find someone who can design & construct – it can save dramas by dealing with one point of contact and not needing you to be a go between a draftsman & builder.

Do these things and you could find a beautiful al-fresco home extension could change your life this time next summer!

Five Reasons Why You Need a Body Cleanse

isagenix-australiaWe  all love our food. 

But there comes times in our lives when we need to stop and reset the body clock.

Scientific evidence suggests that there are significant health benefits to performing a cleanse, flushing the body of anything harmful and getting yourself back to a healthy baseline of energy and strength.

Have you considered a body cleanse?

Here are five great reasons why you should!

  1. Get rid of waste matter
    We don’t like to think about it but the fact of the matter is our body can carry a build of unwanted faecal matter. This can get stuck in our bowel and through our intestinal track causing us health issues. A good detox cleanse will flush the body of this waste freeing up the body’s resources to recovering other areas of attention.
  2. Increased Energy
    A body full of toxins will leads you feeling lethargy and listless. Cleansing your body will typically have the impact of boosting your energy levels making you feel like new, sleeping well at night and active throughout the day
  3. Improved Immunity
    Do you suffer ongoing colds and flu’s? Are you suffering from one ailment after another? It could be that your immune system is run down from all the build up of toxins in your body. Clearing out the harmful bacteria in the gut can have a profund effect on your general health and ability to fight off sickness.
  4. Brighter, Healthier Skin and Hair
    Did you know your internal health is reflected in your skin and hair? A healthy intestinal tract will result in healthy shiny hair and bright clear skin. A cleanse is the perfect way to restore this internal health and get you looking your very best!
  5. Weight Loss
    This the big one! We all love to learn of ways to lose weight and there is no doubt that cleansing your body can provide a terrific foundation from which you can begin the weight loss journey. Reset your body clock and restore your body and you will begin to lose the weight you always wanted to.

Getting the Greens You Need!


“Barely one in 10 people get the recommended five to seven servings of fresh fruits and vegetables per day (1). And because of depleted nutrients in soils, even those who eat plenty of produce may not be getting all the vitamins and minerals they need.

Here’s where green food supplements come into the picture; adding these products to the diet is critical. In a nutshell, green foods are made with a variety of important land and sea plants such as chlorella, carotenoids, spirulina (blue–green algae), cereal grasses (like wheat and barley), broccoli, spinach, kelp, wheat grass and more. These highly nutritious greens are dehydrated into powders or juices and formulated in tableted, capsulated or powdered supplements.
