Healthy Living Resources

Here are a few of my favourite things I have discovered over the journey that have made it it easier to stay healthy and active.


My favourite websites:

These websites are all full of well-informed and nutritious recipes.

My favourite healthy recipe blogs:

Click here to view more details Everyday Healthy eCookbook from Pinch of Yum

Tools of the trade:

I love having a coffee/nut/spice grinder to make my own flours (e.g. oat, almond, buckwheat), make icing sugar from xylitol and even small batches of nut butter.  This is a great version KitchenAid Blade Coffee Grinder.

I use sugar substitutes a lot in my baking.  In Australia, you can get rice malt syrup from both Coles and Woolworths in the health food aisle.  I buy xylitol at my local health food shop or you can get it here where they have some good sale prices. 

Favourite cook books:

Stephanie Alexander's The Cook's Companion: The Complete Book of Ingredients and Recipes for the Australian Kitchen is my cooking bible.

Ellie Krieger's Food You Crave, The: Luscious Recipes for a Healthy Life was one of the first books to help teach me how to take a healthier approach to cooking.

Lee Holme's Eat Yourself Beautiful: Supercharged Food. This is a great book focusing on 'super' whole foods cooked simply and beautifully.

Teresa Cutter's  The 80/20 Diet (The Healthy Chef Book 1).  I love, love, love her food and this provides a realistic approach to eating beautiful whole food.

Sarah Wilson's I Quit Sugar for Life. She also has a great range of e-books, I Quit Sugar Chocolate Cookbook,  I Quit Sugar Kids Cookbook and 8-Week Program Starter Pack .


I love the Nike Training App and the website for HIIT workouts - both are free too!

I use my Gymboss Interval Timer  for most workouts.  You can get a variety of free and paid apps that do the same thing but I don't like to use my phone at the gym or worry about keeping it safe in my pocket. The Gymboss is small, easy to use and clips on easily.
