As you may know already…February is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month.
Just recently a lovely Darwin lady lost her battle with Ovarian Cancer. She was sooo full of life & wanted to help educate women about trusting their gut instinct to get health concerns checked & double checked early.
We want to help others be more mindful of their health….mind, body & soul. Tammy, Louise & I would love you to join us for our Women’s Awareness & Wellness Afternoon Teal where mindfulness, health – body, mind & soul….& of course healthy treats & organic herbal tea will be on offer.

How has ‘Your Year’ been???
Were you true to Yourself….& followed the paths you chose as best as You could…even if things didn’t go completely as planned???
Somehow I managed to achieve most that I hoped for…there were some challenges professionally & personally – but hey, I had to keep pushing through. Not saying all is ‘perfect’…just content with where I’m at. And that’s all that’s important – as long as you’re happy with all that You do. Don’t worry about what others think of your choices.
We all have different circumstances & at stages in life. We set our own goals; have desires & wishes…but the one thing I feel is important, is that we move – & not get ‘stuck’ somewhere waiting for it all to come to us. ‘Cause babe….that ain’t gonna happen.
Only YOU can set your mind to be all you wish…only YOU can ‘turn it up a gear’ – no matter what ‘that’ is for YOU. There are often curve balls thrown in our way for good measure in life, in some shape or form…it’s how YOU deal with those that matters.
I hope You can reflect back on ‘Your’ 2017 & pat yourself on the back & smile….Yes I did it!
Life is a roller coaster….how do YOU ride it?!!
Roll on 2018 I say…I’m ready for ya! 😉
I see lots of menopausal women in my clinic….& they often ask…is soy ok for me??? This is a simple answer of YES – as a ‘real’ FOOD, not generally a supplement. It’s all about….BALANCE (my favourite word!!)
Edamame (soybeans) are a phyto-oestrogenic food rich in isoflavones. These are compounds that have a weak oestrogenic effect & bind to oestrogen receptors in the body. Including these as part of a balanced diet may help reduce menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes & vaginal dryness, & may even protect you from breast & ovarian cancers.
Soy beans are full of B-vitamins & are particularly rich in choline – needed for brain function & also maintains the myelin sheath which protects our nerve cells. They are jam packed with amino acids….(the building blocks for protein), iron, calcium & Omega 3 EFA’s making them perfect for vegetarians. Your best choice is to buy organic soybeans when you can so you know they’re not genetically modified….& enjoying in moderation.
- x1 tin organic chick peas
- 1/2C shelled organic edamame beans
- 1C baby spinach
- Juice 1/2 lemon
- 2Tbsp olive oil
- x1 clove garlic
- 2 heaped Tbsp tahini
- 1/2tsp cumin
- handful of parsley…& any other herbs you like!
- pinch sea salt
- 1/4C water
