180 Natural Protein Superfood
It takes a LOT for us to recommend a protein powder as we generally believe in a natural, wholefood diet. However, 180 natural protein superfood is awesome. It’s like a power packed meal in a glass, with no fake stuff – believe us, this is a rare find when it comes to protein powders. It’s a great meal replacement and, after scouring Australia for a couple of years, we’ve finally found a great one to recommend. Click on the image to make your order online.
If you’re interested in rebalancing yourself, take a look at the ancient India science of life called Ayurveda. Donna has always enjoyed the science and practice of Ayurveda as it’s the integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit. You can take the online dosha (body type) quiz here, as well as purchase some fantastic Ayurvedic products. The Chopra Center is our must trusted source for all things Ayurvedic.

Master your Metabolism
We like this book because it delves into the world of hormones and explains how and why hormones play such an important role in your lifestyle. It shows you how to upgrade your diet and exercise patterns to make your hormones work for you, rather than against you. Click on the image to purchase from Amazon.
Four Hour Body
This book will turn a lot of what you thought you knew about diet and exercise on its head. This book is not intended to be read from front to back, just dip in and out of the parts that are most relevant to you. Even though we don’t endorse the idea of a completely over-the-top, pig-out cheat day every week because it plays havoc with your mindset, the general philosophy of the slow carb diet is increasingly being seen as a good way to eat.
