Time for a treat?

Who says eating healthily means never being able to enjoy the occasional treat?

Certainly not Alison Harris, last Sunday’s guest on Girls Around Town – and June is with her all the way on that too…

Everybody needs a bit of a treat once in a while and if it’s a guilt-free one, then so much the better.

Next time you’re tempted to reach for a chocolate bar or a cake, give Alison’s protein balls a try – quick and easy to make, you can even pop them in the freezer which means they’re always to hand when you want to spoil yourself a little!

Eating your way back to health

It’s often said that the kitchen is the heart of the home – and what goes on in the kitchen of next weekend’s guest is most definitely at the heart of her business.

Because it’s there that nutritional therapist Sophia Hill creates the recipes that help to inspire people to change their lives by eating glorious, nourishing REAL food…

Passionate about helping her clients back to health through diet, she’s made it her mission to educate as many people as possible on natural health and she’ll be joining Girls Around Town Rosalyn, June and Rachel on Sunday morning to explain how she’s doing just that.

“The clients I work with have problems ranging from hormonal imbalances and thyroid disorders to autoimmune diseases and digestive troubles such as IBS and IBD,” she says.

“I liken nutritional therapy to cleaning a wound out thoroughly rather than putting a plaster over it and masking the symptoms. And I love delving in to each case to find the root of the problem because, until that is uncovered, I don’t believe that my clients can fully recover.”

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon to find out how powerful natural health can be in healing and preventing diseases.

And in the meantime, why not check out Sophia’s website, where you’ll find healthy tips and recipes such as the one for the Cauliflower and Collagen Super-Smoothie in the picture above?
