Good Food Friday: Nicole Beardsley’s Peach Parfait

Chia puddings are all the rage at the moment, but as the weather is cooling down our body needs warming foods, so that means raw desserts might need to take a back shelf for a few months! I’m a big fan of eating with the seasons and right now Mother Nature is providing us with an abundance of fruit such as peaches, nectarines, apples and rhubarb, so why not turn them into a warming, sweet smelling, delicious dessert?!


healthtalks : 16 episodes done! It’s a wrap (plus a smoothie to keep you going).

Tell you what. Time flies when you’re having fun! Can you believe this is the 16th episode of healthtalks in a row! PHEW… we’re a little tuckered out and need of a little r & r. This is the last you’ll see of the healthtalks clan for a few weeks.

Sam and Mel head into the kitchen today and whip up another super smoothie – this one is chocolate themed and definitely something you don’t want to miss out on! Plus – it’s got a super special hormone regulating ingredient – you’ll just have to watch to find out more. It’s something I LOVE and something I suggest all women get their lips around.


healthtalks – so keen for keen-wah (aka QUINOA)

Say it with me kids – keeen waaah

Some of us are so MAD about quinoa… we’re making a week of it! The girls jumped into the kitchen and got quinoa crazy – there’s a big chance you’ll be inspired to get your cook on after watching this, ESPECIALLY if you have over indulged over the easter break. In fact, we didn’t realise just how much we loved it until we realised just how many quinoa recipes we’ve featured! Chances are, you’ve made one of those if you’re a human with tastebuds.

Sam talks about the benefits of quinoa (and the not so fab effects too). I’ll be back on the healthalks site tomorrow to give you my take on this. You may want to check that out. My opinion on quinoa may be different to what you think!


Healthtalks – oodles of noodles

So that’s a whole lotta’ noodles! These noodles are a bit special – they are made from sea kelp! I love this. What a great alternative – especially for those avoiding gluten and pepping up the fertility factor (if you’re wondering why – you might like to grab a copy of my book and find out).

This week on healthtalks, Sam and I get busy in the kitchen. I get to work with this whiz bang noodle oodle machine which makes zucchini into noodles (or other veg for that matter). It’s one you can find out all about here.
