Ep. 16 Nutritional Psychology: A New Realm of Research

Nutritional Psychology

For episode 16 of “Let’s Talk About..” I chat about Nutritional Psychology and the link between physical and mental health.
I want to delve into something close and personal to my heart and that is the research around nutritional psychology. My older sister experienced a psychotic episode a few years ago resulting in her being diagnosed with psychosis, depression and PTSD. She was quite heavily medicated to start with but over the last 4 years she has been working on getting well and is now on the lowest dose possible of anti-psychosis medication possible.  Angie (my sister) has just written a book about her experience and her journey to recovery – (download it here). Angie talks a bit in the book about my role in her road to recovery.

Thai Chicken Sausage Rolls Recipe

I absolutely love making this Guacamole Recipe! Especially when we have friends coming around, it’s always a hit. It can be made ahead of time and is still good after a couple of days in the fridge (not that it will last that long).  It’s also a great side to add to a big hearty bowl of Mexican chilli beans or to put with your taco’s or nacho’s.

Aerated Brewed Worm Tea Recipe

One of the things that I really care about is food waste and the effect that food waste has on the environment. That is one of the reasons why I keep a worm farm at home. It is somewhere for me to use up some of the juice pulp waste plus the worms produce castings (worm poo) that is literally liquid gold organic fertiliser.  One way to use worm juice is to water the worms in the farm and then just collect the water that drains out. This worm juice is normally pretty concentrated so needs to be watered down before pouring on your garden plants or you can make a special aerated brew that is super abundant in microbes that really feed and condition your soil.  

Ep. 13 Celery Juice, Worm Juice & Meditations

Celery juice

For episode 13of “Let’s Talk About..” I have a chat about celery juice, worm juice and meditations. According to the Medical Medium it is most beneficial to drink about 500ml of celery juice per day first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Worm juice – No you don’t drink it. It is an amazing organic fertiliser that helps improve soil microbiota and helps improve your plants immune system to fend off disease. And I share my favourite meditation techniques that help to calm down my noisy mind and get me back to sleep.
