I had a problem. I was entertaining guests, was on a strict Paleo diet and wanted to make a dessert that they were going to talk about (and not realise was gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free) – tough ask huh? It was until I stumbled across this amazing recipe by the Merry Maker […]
Most of you would be aware that I started a new business six months ago www.theinklingeffect.com.au which has been sapping a lot of my apparent spare time (’cause there’s so much of that floating around with two kids under 3!).

It’s detox time for me at the moment. I’m on my third week, 3kg down and starting to feel great. I’ve said I will continue doing it until we move into our new house (another 5-6 weeks!). I did a massive detox about 5 years ago, guided by a wonderful naturopath at Glow. For four months I cut out caffeine, dairy, wheat, red meat, fruit (except grapefruit), potatoes, corn, mushrooms, anything processed… you get the idea (it was really restrictive!!!). Along with all that I was systematically cleansing each internal organ of my body… bowel, stomach, kidney, liver using herbal tablets and powders. You’re wondering why would I put myself through such deprivation? Apart from needing to lose some weight and get healthier, I was suffering from headaches (almost daily), my hands were peeling, I had really bad hay-fever that had come on when I turned 30, and I felt really sluggish.
