It’s Not About Food

In case you didn’t see the blog article from last week, click on this link to read it here. It must seem odd that a food philosopher, (as I’ve branded myself for the last 15 years) would write a blog titled ‘It’s not about the food” and you’re right. Odd and counter-intuitive yet spot on. One thing…

My Birthday Gift to YOU

Spring is a big time for me. What does it mean for you? There is spring cleaning which we normally associate with the house. I’ve just moved from the Vancouver to Bowen Island which has been a great opportunity to clean out what is unwanted and have a fresh less cluttered start (see my kitchen…

Invite to the ‘What if’ movie Premier

I have some exciting news that I have to tell you about. I have been working with over a dozen other experts in the fields of health, wellness, spirituality and personal development on a new documentary film that is just about to be launched.

It is called “The Wheel Of Life” and it is going to be huge.  In fact, the “buzz” is already building fast.

If you enjoyed “The Secret” or “What The Bleep”, you’ll love “The Wheel Of Life”.
The website is so new that only a few “insiders” know about it, but here’s where the trailer has just been posted – check it out here

After you’ve watched the trailer, you might like to take the opportunity to  sign up to gain access to 8 “hidden” content videos that have been provided to you because you’re on my mailing list.   You will be sent the hidden link to a new video every day.

If Diets Don’t Work! What Does?

The answer depends on whether you are selling a pill, potion, program, book weight loss program or food system that promises magical weight loss. We now even have the companies that have been selling diets for decades telling us that they aren’t diets and have them marketed as health products. If you are still looking for the magic pill I can’t help you, as I gave up finding them in 1996 and when I did a funny thing happened, not only did I begin to lose weight but on the way I got a lot healthier than ever before. I also learned that when I focussed on my health, the weight loss was a by-product of a much bigger gain, so to speak.

One of the highlights of my calendar is teaching the Foodlovers Workshop Anti Diet seminar at the Peaceful Gardens Cooking School in Gippsland with a group of amazing souls who run a fabulous business that I am honoured to be associated with.

What does Sustainable living, Slow food and TED have in common and why should we care about it?

I had another great opportunity to speak about Natures Principle when I was invited to the Sustainable Living Festival (16-17 Feb). The festival promotes the concepts about the importance of using the resources of our planet wisely and in a fashion that is lasting (sustainable). As with Sustainable Living, the central idea of Natures Principle is harmony, however, not just on a global scale with respect to resources, but rather the harmony that we can achieve by eating food in the context of it’s bio-availability (For more info about my concept of Natures Principle apart from public speaking engagements, the tentative publishing date for the book is in September).

Fun or Contribution?

I once heard emotional intelligence could be identified in children by offering them two lollies and telling them when you leave the room and then return 15 minutes later if they don’t eat the lollies they would get three more. (kind of like the Biblical parable of the talents) The child that eats the lollies…
