Autumn has begun!? In this newsletter we will have a look at the practical benefits of baby wearing, the importance of eating greens and a good pillow and the usual fun recipe/recommendation 'stuff'.
I have always talked about green leafy vegetables with reference to B12 and neurological health but here is another benefit...in this study, the researchers found a 30% decrease in risk of glaucoma with intake of these vegetables.
I have started following the Ted Ed lessons. They simplify concepts in a great way. Watch this short video on why sitting is bad for you. This gives you another reason to get up from sitting at your desk and get the blood pumping.
A good pillow is so important as we spend most of our time asleep. It is important to check your pillow every 3 years to make sure that is it still giving you the same support as when you first bought it. If you find your pillow is getting a little old or you are getting neck pain or headaches please contact me to discuss what pillow is right for you.
Babywearing has many health benefits for Mum and Bub but what are the practical benefits? This article looks at why babywearing is becoming so popular.
Are you a Mum, a student or do you work at a desk? What's your posture? This is a great initiative by the Chiropractic Association of Australia. It highlights the areas that are likely to be under strain and gives some advice on ways to counter these habits.
Salmon Tarator - A friend made this last year and I loved it. I only realised recently that she had sent me the recipe and it has become my favourite dish to cook. The last few times I have bought the tahini ready-made - this makes the recipe that much quicker. I have also blitzed the crust ingredients in the magimix instead of finely chopping (again, much quicker and easier). Tahini is a little underrated - it contains magnesium, potassium and calcium.
Roasted Jerusalem Artichoke - my favourite vegetable! This is an excellent accompaniment and feels almost like a treat. It is also high in fibre and iron and contains smaller amounts of Vitamin A, E and C.
Out and About
Dan and I recently ate at Yellow in Potts Point. It has recently become vegetarian and the food was excellent. It is the first vegetarian restaurant that I have eaten at that offers beautiful, well-balanced, creative food. Highly recommended- especially the Parsnip 'Pappardelle'!
Two Chaps - Marrickville: A great cafe in Marrickville with a little bit of a mediterranean feel to the food. I had the chai spiced granola and my friend ordered the brekkie bowl which looked excellent. Another great addition to the cafe scene.
