Do I need to buy organic?

The word organic is a bit thrown around in health circles. When it comes to cleaning up your diet and eating for health and energy, it can almost seem like buying organic is a non-negoatible. For a lot of us though, the cost leaves us about one step away from mortgaging our prized possessions to pay for the privilege. So, let’s have a closer look at organic food to see what the hype is about.

How to create a healthy lunchbox

How to create a healthy lunchbox

Lunch makes up a little less than a third of a child’s daily energy needs, making it an important pit stop for them to refuel their bodies and minds for the busy afternoon ahead. A child who eats a healthy and balanced lunch will focus more on afternoon lessons at school, will have less pre-dinner meltdowns, and feel more energised throughout the rest of the day.

Review: WOOP Balance

Review: WOOP Balance

At Feel Fresh, we are LOVING the food delivery services. We have busy clients. Busier than a one-armed brick-layer in Baghdad with an itch. (For those that appreciate a Honey Badger reference). They value good nutrition but literally do not have the time or energy at the end of the day to plan, shop and cook a meal for themselves or their families. Or they equally value doing other things with their time. For those that can afford this - it's a win-win solution.

Pre and Post Nutrition for Medacs Global Group

Trying to figure out the ideal pre-training meal or snack can seem a little overwhelming with all the different information bombarding us all the time. Some in the high fat, low carb camp say you can fuel a workout entirely off your body stores and fasting is the way to go. Others swear by chugging back pre workout drinks or coffee to get an energy boost. The truth - as with many things - is, it’s entirely individual.  As our bodies all work slightly differently there is not one perfect answer, but we can help guide you to make some educated choices so you can find out what works best for you.

What does binge eating tell you about your habits?

What does binge eating tell you about your habits?

Binge eating is so incredibly common. I have so many women come to me in clinic who struggle with binge eating on a weekly or even daily basis. Binge eating is not necessarily defined by the volume of food but rather the actions or thought processes that precede the consumption of food coupled with the thoughts that follow after. After all, eating a large amount of food to the point where you feel sick, with no guilt at all, is not a binge, it’s simply just eating a large amount of food.

Fresh versus frozen produce, is there any difference?

Fresh versus frozen produce, is there any difference?

Lets talk nutrition, timesaving, One of our biggest budget saving tips while increasing the vegetable content of our meals is to keep your freezer stocked with frozen veggies.

If this is not something that you have considered doing yet, cast your mind back to what you typically throw away. Bags of smelly spinach? Wrinkly carrots? The promise to yourself that you WILL use the whole cauliflower each time you put it in your trolly, only to toss it out 3 weeks later….?

How to feed a family of 5 for $200 per week or less

One of the most common questions we get asked during our corporate wellness seminars is how to feed families nutritious food while keeping costs low.

Certainly in clients we see at the clinic, food cost is a growing concern.  We also see a generally more affluent strata of the population. Either way, many people are seeking to reduce food costs to allow room for leisure activities and lifestyle. It’s a catch 22. You want your health and energy for mountain bike riding and sports. But you can’t spend all disposable income on food or else you can’t do these activities even if you are fit and well.

Here we are going to give some strategies and ideas for reducing your food bill. This figure is based on a family of 5 with three pre-teenage children.

Emotional Eating

Emotional Eating

When we emotionally eat we're eating for reasons outside of our physiological needs, i.e. our hunger. There's something else going on - maybe we're bored, tired, sad or stressed. Maybe we're procrastinating or seeking pleasure. Ultimately, we're treating food as a refuge within the moment, or a place to escape how we're feeling.
