The Sugar Free Kitchen

The Sugar-Free Kitchen shows you how easy it is to cook with sugar-free recipes and reduce or eliminate sugar from your diet while still enjoying fresh and tasty dishes. This cookery book is packed with information on how both refined and natural sugar affects the body, how it has snuck into our food, and the health benefits of eating more quality protein, whole foods, and good fats. Advice on stocking your pantry, as well as how to deal with sugar cravings, gives you a head start toward changing your eating habits. Exciting sugar-free recipes like Nutty Muesli Medley, Rib-eye Steak with Chimichurri Sauce, Crispy Parmesan-coated Sea Bass, and Sweet Potato Brownies cover every mealtime, snack, and sweet to take the hassle out of eating sugar-free. Sugar – whether refined or natural – is in almost everything we eat, from processed and fast foods, to everyday staples like rice and pasta, and even seemingly innocent fruit and vegetables. This book provides an alternative guide to eating that will help you take your first step toward a sugar-free lifestyle, with recipes to improve your well-being as well as your waistline. Reducing – or even eliminating – sugar from your diet doesn't have to be difficult.

Nadia's Kitchen Cookbook

Nadia’s Kitchen is a must-have collection of delicious recipes that will become favourite staples in many homes. They are complete meals and arranged by seasons. As Nadia explains, ‘The recipes are divided into seasons as my cooking has always been largely driven by the produce in front of me; I like to pick what is freshest and then decide what to cook.’ Nadia’s training as a dietitian and nutritionist is evident throughout the book with the recipes being well thought out and balanced — with nutrition information for each. Interspersed with Nadia’s food philosophy the book includes simple tips and guidelines on how to eat well and most importantly to enjoy yourself too! Nadia advocates eating around a table with friends and family; snacking from nature not the vending machine; eating your colours; cooking for yourself; slowing down, savouring and enjoying your food; and eating for enjoyment and health in balance. Nadia Lim was born in Auckland, living there until she was six before moving to Malaysia where she lived for seven years. Her cooking style has been influenced by her Malaysian/Kiwi heritage — her Mother is Kiwi

Crocs Silver Cloud 2

All the benefits of the cloud diabetic comfort shoe plus silver. Diabetic comfort shoe with Croslite Ag+™. Ideal for: ultra sensitive feet, impaired circulation, impaired sensation and diabetic feet. Infused with a silver treatment. Super-soft footbed provides a gentle environment for sensitive feet, while the roomy toe box allows for use of a heavy sock without creating any tightness or pressure points on the foot. The protective front toe cap and elevated heel rim protect the diabetic foot from stubbing and bruising.

Croslite Ag+™

Nano-silver ceramic crystals are combined with croslite material, a unique shock absorbing material that is non-marking, slip-resistant, doesn’t break down, & is bacteriostatic. When this combination occurs, the end result is croslite Ag+. This material which is naturally anti-bacterial, effectively kills harmful strains of bacteria & fungi which are routinely at issue with foot infections, namely bacterial staphylococcus infections & fungal athlete’s foot infections. The anti-bacterial & anti-fungal environment of the CrocsRx Silver Relief & Crocs Silver Cloud can be a critical benefit for those susceptible to such infections. Microbial tests were performed on the Crocs Rx Croslite Ag+ material. The tests concluded that there is a 90% kill rate for bacteria & fungi and is effective for a one-year period of time. Croslite Ag+ works by a slow, steady release of silver ions which maintains an effective concentration in and around crocsrx silver products. The silver ionic release rate is accelerated by three factors: heat, moisture, & saline concentration. In other words, the hotter & sweatier the feet become, the more silver ions are released to fight the increase threat of infection. Croslite Ag+ material is effective with or without socks. Silver ions are extremely small – small enough to penetrate the cell walls of microbes, thus easily penetrating the sock material to reach the skin surface of the foot.

Why Silver?

Silver is a well-known, time-tested, anti-bacterial agent. Silver is currently used in eye drops, bandages, wound dressings, burn salve, topical ointments, and various other medical & non-medical products as a means of killing a wide range of menacing bacterial, fungal, & viral microbes. Certain medical conditions make a person more susceptible to skin breakdown, foot odor, & infection.
