I recently submitted a paper looking at iodine intakes in the Australian population, particularly in children and adolescents. Until 2009, iodine deficiency was relatively common however because of the detrimental effects of this, the government mandated its addition to the food supply. Iodine is now routinely added to bread and there are specific iodised salts available.

By now you have probably seen the Brazilian campaign featuring a baby nursing on a doughnut, soft drink or a burger. You may have seen the ad and thought "yeh, good point", or you may have seen it and rolled your eyes. I did the latter. In fact, I will go a step further and say I'm downright irritated by the ad. To me this looks like one of those ideas that sounded great to a marketing team sitting around a big table, and that's about where it stopped.

Life is busy. There's no question about that. Technology has added to the constant and sometimes overwhelming 'noise' that we need to filter through each and every day. Life can leave us burnt out, we multitask while really only paying attention to a fraction of what are doing. It can be hard to focus and be in the moment. Enter mindfulness. 

This week I thought I would share my system for feeding my family. I quite literally have a system. And I find it to be the easiest way to make sure that we eat plenty of variety in our fruits and veggies, don't lose my sanity and am not forever running out to buy groceries. Because who has time for that? Not I, and probably not you either.

Like countless other women, I had endometriosis. Endometriosis can be a nasty disease that causes pain, infertility and abnormal periods. It can also have no symptoms. You can have the tiniest endometrial lesions and experience unimaginable pain, or you can have large amounts of endometriosis and have no pain whatsoever.
