Hungry for Change is written in the same conversational style as the Hungry for Change movie. It includes inspirational before and after stories of people who are following healthier diets. The book covers why diets don’t work, what to eat, drink and think, as well as eating for beauty and detoxing.
Half of the book is recipes with 120 plus of them. There are quotes from the experts, some of whom are well known. There are details of overcoming sugar cravings and instructions on how to complete a 3 day guided detox.
The movie is powerful and motivating, but the book is a good accompaniment for when you need a reminder or recipe.

I volunteer for the Australian Marine Conservation Society who in partnership with WWF are currently involved in promoting awareness in their Fight for the Reef campaign.
The Queensland Government is fast-tracking mega port developments, dredging and dumping of millions of tonnes of seabed and rock, and encouraging a shipping superhighway.
The Australian Government is approving these developments, including the world’s biggest coal port at Abbot Point, 50 km from the Whitsunday Islands.
Fight for the Reef is working with the Australian community to protect the Reef and the $6 billion tourism industry and 60,000 jobs it supports.
It’s your Reef, but you’re going to have to fight for it.

Food-like products is my favourite nutritional catch-phrase.
I’m counting down the days for the new Hungry for Change documentary. Why? Because it’s produced by the same people who did the “Food Matters” documentary, which is my all time favourite food and nutrition movie. Hands down.

Wow what an incredible range of talented people.
There are a few questions to ask before you buy a plant.
Does it suit the climate?
Is the mature plant the right size for the spot?
Will the soil and water requirements be suitable?
I chose our native plants based on ‘Creating a Sustainable, Waterwise Garden’ by Linda Ross. I also worked my way through back issues of ‘Gardening Australia‘ and ‘Organic Gardener‘ magazines from the library and added more natives to my wish list.
Two other good resources are your state’s or local Society for Growing Australian Plants and the illustrated ‘Australian Native Plants‘ (I have the Concise Edition) by Wrighley and Fagg.
A word of warning though, if I bought a plant at the nursery because it looked attractive or had pretty flowers, it was usually dead within a month of planting.
