Who Wants Optimal Health

Who Wants Optimal Health? Seems like a no-brainer question, doesn’t it? But you would be surprised how many people settle for a life of “not being incapacitated”, which is why optimal health is more about mindset and values than anything else.

What’s on Your Plate? As part of the process of positive intentional living, one naturally changes shopping habits, especially food, over time, and we wonder if you have noticed this and realised that what’s on your plate now is different from a few years ago.

No so called “gluten free” Continue Reading →

Despite many medical practitioners and scientists publishing studies for several decades and saying that dietary fat is not the villain previously thought, there is still a widely held belief that we should aim for a low fat, high carbohydrate diet.
