Hello world!

Hello World!
I’m new to  Blogging so go easy on me.
However I have been teaching alkaline cooking classes in my home town of Adelaide  South Australia for 7 years and also lecturing and mentoring on the benefits of an alkaline high nutrient dense diet.

Here is what some people have experienced and said about my cooking classes.

“As a doctor specialising in nutritional medecine I truly value all Danyse has to offer.  I have done her 6 week cooking class and every meal was delicious and full of vital nutrients.  I recommend her classes to my patients and then they recommend her classes to their friends and family as we all love what we learn from her.  Thank you Danyse!”
Dr Kylie Dodsworth, BMBS, BSc, FRACGP.

“Danyse’s Alkaline Cooking Classes changed my life! After years of being overweight, suffering from arthritis and diabetes 2, I saw immediate positive healthy effects since changing my diet to alkaline. Within 3 months no more arthritis, no more insulin and lost 25 kg. I highly recommend Danyse’s philosophy of truly healthy living for anyone: sick or well, young or old.”
Anne Pomeroy

However, not everyone either lives in Adelaide or is able to get to my classes.  Because I am so passionate about being able to inspire and share what i have experienced with others, I wrote and published with family and friends an inspirational cookbook alkaline- alive.

My own journey to health, this way of eating and teaching, came about through my own experience with two autoimmune disorders.  This led me on a path of discovery. Macrobiotics, Ayurveda and raw foods keeping my meals always delicious, always full of  high nutrient dense plant foods, whole grains, pulses,beans and lentils.  What one of my teachers calls a”clean”diet , foods that are not “hard” on the body to digest. And sprouted grains, seeds and legumes. The journey, and it’s not done yet still exploring and discovering, has led me to more love than I could ever imagine; meeting people sharing delicious recipes, eating together and healing ourselves and our world.

  1. Hi Danyse
    I am wondering if I could join your cooking class? Please let me know how I can attend the classes. I live in Adelaide. I have already been following this kind of diet for approx. 6 weeks with some wonderful results as I suffer from fibromyalgia and CFS. Looking forward to your reply. Kind Regards. Karen

  5. Hi Danyse

    My daughter is dairy intolerant, gluten intolerant and cannot eat cauliflower or any grains (apart from Quinoa or Chia). Do you have any recipes that would be interesting and suitable for her in your cookbook? I must say – I used to love cooking but it’s become very boring with chicken, salad and sweet potatoes just about every night. Please – give me some variety?? Also, where can I purchase your cook book?

    All the best,

    • Dear Vicki,

      thank you for your interest. I know it seems hard to vary meals when you have so many restraints. However in the book Alkaline- alive out of 88 recipes there are 71 recipes that you and your daughter can enjoy. Some of those recipes may suggest ghee however you can substitute sunflower oil in it’s place. Also she may be able to enjoy the buckwheat noodle recipes as buckwheat is free of gluten and not a grain. You may enjoy to do some cooking classes with me and get your cooking MoJo back. Re the book it is available here on line or at the following stores
      Wilsons Organics in Market Street off Gouger Street,
      Goodies and Grains in the Market
      Romeos Health Store in North Adelaide Village
      The Organic Market and Cafe Stirling
      Affordable Organics at Magill
      Wilde Thyme Melbourne Street North Adelaide
      Mostly books at Mitcham Square shopping centre
      Booked at Unley and at North Adelaide Village
      Go Vita Health shops- Fairview Green Shopping Centre and others
      Dymocks in Rundle Mall
      Pages and More Jetty rd. Glenelg and other venues
      Real Organics Norwood.

      This Thursday evening at 6.00 p.m. I will be giving a special talk and book signing at a wonderful book store in the Mitcham Square Shopping centre off Belair Road. The charming store is called Mostly Books and would love to see you there if you can make it

      all the best

  6. Hi Danyse

    It was great to meet you tonight at Mostly Books, Mitcham. Thanks for your time – your book looks great and I can’ wait to start cooking some of your recipes. My daughter is even keen to try them out too. I am also really interested in your whole day cooking course so if you have a date and venue for that would you please give me the details?

    Kindest regards,
