Whether you’re reading this because you’re gluten intolerant, suffer from PVFS or CFS, are starting to grow your own veggies, embracing natural and/or alternative remedies, or just want to enjoy the journey with us, please remember I’m not a medical expert, nor am I here to debate global warming. Being diagnosed with a life-changing illness, looking for answers or changing the way one lives can all be overwhelming events, so I hope that by sharing the triumphs and tragedies, you too will benefit in some way from our journey.

I hope you enjoy the journey and if you leave this blog having learnt only one new recipe or started to think about finding your star, then this blog’s purpose has been served.

My two favourite sayings:
Pondering the choices we make at the crossroads is like revision in the school of life. Regretting the mistakes or taking for granted the successes means we have learnt nought.
An attentive student will gain wisdom from the mistakes and joy from the successes. Cartillyer – 2008

Save The Great Barrier Reef From Greed

I despise greed and it saddens me when I see how often we're driven by greed. 

But when you add to that greed, a total disregard for our environment and something as precious as The Great Barrier Reef and a nature refuge, I get really pissed off. 

I understand that we've built a world where we need money to survive, but it's downright disgusting when those who already have more than enough money to spend the rest of their lives in luxury are preparing to start ripping up more of Queensland, Australia. More coal mines in Australia means more pollution, reduced farmland, the damming of rivers, the end of Bimblebox Nature Refuge and the desecration of The Great Barrier Reef. 

Please take the time to view this short video by Greenpeace about the plans the rich mine owners have planned for Australia and share it, so the greater public know what they're hoping we won't find out about before they've secured all the necessary approvals. And don't forget to sign the petition and then send an email to the decision maker to put the pressure on (below the petition).

Save The Great Barrier Reef


  1. I've joined the petition as like you I feel strongly about the damage it will cause to our environment which will not only effect Australia but inevitably effect everybody in the world

  2. Thank you. Please share the link to the video on Facebook or Twitter. If you don't have those then email it to all of your friends. It's time we showed Gina Rinehart and the other rich, greedy people in the world that the health of our environment takes priority. If its health fails, so will ours.
