A glass of wine. A pint of beer. Can you have the occasional cocktail and remain on track with your Thrive lifestyle?
Today, a question from Tim:
Q: Where do you sit regarding beer and wine (both red and white)? Are these substances alkaline or acid-forming? Is there a place… Continue

So tonight i made my first batch of Almond flax burgers and added my own twist due to lack of ingredients! I was so pleasently suprised! I was a little nervous how they would turn out, especially when i realised i didn't have a few things and as was also trying to impress my mother who had come over for dinner and it worked!
She loved them!
I've only really started with Thrive about 2 weeks ago and have been doing a gradual introduction with the WFHO smoothies and a big… Continue

So, I've been doing more High Intensity Training--in groups. Its kickass. I always thought I pushed myself hard, but the group environment really helps me push up.
My Old style of training was sort of bodybuilding workouts and higher intensity cardio on off days.
Lately, I've been combing Olympic lifts and powerlifting lifts with high intensity cardio and other full body movements. Overall, I think this is making me a much better athlete.
Here are a couple… Continue

The cinnamon and nutmeg taste combined with banana is oh so good. What a great alternative to traditional banana bread - these bars keep the taste but use nutrient-packed ingredients instead of high-fructose corn syrup, white sugar and hydrogenated oils.

It’s 7.30 and i’m awake! I don’t just mean that i’m up and about, my brain is actually functioning and my body too.
I do feel quite achey, like i’ve been exercising but not overly stiff.
Yesterday was quite exciting - It was my first fully Raw day. It was difficult. I don’t mean eating the raw food, which is delicious, or even sticking to the diet. So why? Well two things really. I hadn’t intended to go Raw so soon. The plan was to ease into it, learning the new skills, and… Continue

My sons race BMX. which involves short bursts of energy, however during a training clinic they can be active for up to 6-8 hrs at a time. We have incorporated Vega Sport into our dailing regime with morning smoothies for the kids and myself. I have recently picked up the bars to see if they would sustain them longer than a cliff bar, but i am not willing to ask my children to become vegan. Can incorporating Vega products into a traditionally healthy well balanced diet with a large reliance on… Continue

I have just started the Thrive in 30 Challenge and have been on it for about a week now, slowly reading the Thrive Diet book, searching this site and using the 'Lessons' from the challenge.
But i need some help. I know that there are different types of foods you should be eating depending on when you train etc etc, but i'm just confused as how to put it all together in my life.
I'm a Wildlife Officer, am up at 5:30am and out feeding, cleaning and caring for… Continue

Today is the first time that I have had a chance to go get on my computer and catch up with friends, family, sponsors and fans that have supported me through my journey. And what a journey it has been.
I did not expect this outcome for the Games, but I did expect that I would go for it and tap into some of my potential and ability as an athlete. I accomplished so many goals that I set out to do, and I can Continue
walk away proud of that. I pushed myself beyond what I…

This is a shorter post, but it is something I have often thought about, and discussed in the past. I wanted to share it with you, and perhaps start a discussion around it.
I do have strong opinions about diet and nutrition, and often discuss this with my patients. Microwaves fall in my 'absolutely not' category. [So does most dairy, over-processed… Continue

what I do to improve the environment? easy:
1- eat over 80% fresh raw local food as it is (processed with a knife at the most ;p). Saves energy and tons of unnecessary wrapping
2- only use grade A appliances and eco-friendly light bulbs
3- keep the heating on only during the day with the thermostat set as low as I can bare (currently 18ºC)
4- compost all organic residue and make sure everything else that enters the house is BOTH reusable and then… Continue
