Clean Food Clear Thinking – by Karina Francois

Clean Food Clear Thinking

I was excited to be given the opportunity to read a new book called Clean Food Clear Thinking by naturopath Karina Francois. From the title alone I knew I was in the right place. As soon as you open the book and are hit with the glowing testimonials, it enhances that feeling even further.

Super Rich Coconut Choc Fudge

I love it when I have cooking weeks where everything works! I had a few disasters not that long ago where the result was so bad that even I couldn’t eat it – very rare as I hate to waste food.

5 reasons why your weight loss program isn’t working…

tapemeasure

I have been reading a few books lately mostly specifically about sugar, grains and weight loss and the interesting thing is that they exactly mirror my beliefs on this subject. My beliefs of course stem from my own experience but also of witnessing the plight of others who keep trying to do the ‘diet and exercise’ advice and fail spectacularly for years, some never succeeding and spending most of their lives miserable. (After dishing out hundreds of dollars on programs that can never work.)

So let’s take a look at what is wrong here…
