How grateful we are to play a vital role in your healing. 

Our customers come in all different shapes, sizes and varying shades of health. 

Some of you are right in those early stages of making positive lifestyle shifts to move the needle in the right direction.

Some of you have been in the grips of chronic illness for some time now and we help make life a little easier.

Some of you are undergoing intensive treatment and to have us waiting for you when you get home is a godsend.

It's a real privilege to be invited into your home each week and know that we are bring entrusted with such a personal task - feeding you. 

We don't take that for granted so thank you 🙏
We've been craving a good Caesar Salad for a little while now and are stoked to introduce you to our take on the classic.

You've got to start with the best ingredients and that means roasting our Milawa organic free range chicken breast till it's juicy.  

Sweet vine ripened tomatoes and caramelised red onion are the perfect match to a slightly soft centered egg that is super satisfying to break into.

No Caesar is complete without bacon we know but our Coconut Bacon is pretty damn fine and works a treat here with our Pine Nut Parmesan crumble. 

This is one for the hungry, the energy expenders, the muscle burners or those who simply appreciate a really tasty salad with plenty of protein and minimal carbs. 

Try one on your order this week 😁
Hey There Goodness Family,

Business as usual can be a little daunting in the face of such tragedy that we see unfolding around us.

We all know someone that has been affected and impacted by these horrific fires.

The coming together of our communities who are donating their time, money, resources and energy to the people who need it is pure magic.

On Saturday we spent the whole day with a roomful of other incredible humans packing over 5000 Disaster Relief Kits that are currently being distributed to the CFA Firefighters, Volunteers and impacted individuals who have lost everything all up the East Coast.

On facebook during the week, we put a call out for anyone who can sew to help us make Pouches for Wildlife Carers who are being inundated with injured animals. 

We are SO grateful to the MGO customers who answered that call and are presently whipping up pouches alongside Warren's mum who is a total WHIZ on the sewing machine. 

Already we have roughly forty pouches ready for distribution to a mother and daughter Wildlife Carer Team in Gippsland who we are working with to co-ordinate efforts.

This week and next, we'll be donating all revenue from sales of our limited edition tribute to Australia Raw Cherry Lamingtons to the WIRES Wildlife Rescue Team who are doing such tireless work rescuing and supporting the more than half a million animals injured with no place to call home.

We're doing what we can, with the resources we have and that's all any of us can do really.

Yours in good health.

🍃 Team MGO

Let the Festive Period Begin 🎉
For Our Sydney and NSW Folks Choking In The Smoke Haze.......

We are so sorry you are having to live in this shitty air quality that is now 11 x the hazardous levels for human health.

The equivalent exposure of smoking 37 cigarettes a day friends 😕

We are so sorry our Prime Minister is nothing but a Puppet who can be bought for the highest price. A Prime Minister with zero empathy or understanding of the impact these fires and climate change are having on ALL life in these areas.


You guys need a whole lot of support to safeguard your health right now so that's the intention of this post......

1. Air Purifier Units
If you don't have an Air Purifying Unit, please do what you can to get your hands on one to keep your home environment as free of contaminants as possible. The Inovaair Air, Dyson, IQAir HealthPro Plus and AusClimate Air Purifier are some of the better options available. These units will be a huge help particularly if you have young kids, the elderly or Asthmatic in your home.

2. Detoxification Support
Supplements to help your organs of detoxification deal with all the ash and the contaminants it holds will be of such great assistance. Think Liver support agents such as Burdock Root, Nettle and Milk Thistle. Vitamin C and Glutathione are two super important antioxidants that will help safeguard your cells against oxidative damage from excessive exposure to toxins and the resulting inflammation. Glutathione is also critical for supporting the processes of your liver during this stressful time whilst also protecting against oxidative stress. Our choices are Pete Evans Native Wholefood Vitamin C (wholefood sources of Vitamin C are best) which you can purchase from Gelatin Australia and BioCeuticals Liposomal Glutathione for optimal bioavailability and absorption.

3. Activated Charcoal
A bloody brilliant and super affordable method of detox support. It basically attracts all impurities floating in our system, captures them up and escorts them out of the body safely. The Bulletproof Activated Coconut Charcoal is excellent but for affordability, try the NOW brand which is available from iHerb and most health food stores. Please be sure to take your charcoal away from all foods and supplements as it binds up the good and bad. None of this charcoal smoothie business please, it's a total waste of time. Try taking it before bed with plenty of water as it can make you bound up if you are dehydrated. Start with 2 capsules at night and yes it's safe for kids and pregnant women to use too though only 1 capsule and every second or so day.

4. Salt Lamps and Saline Nasal Sprays
Salt is brilliant for keeping mucosal membranes lubricated and irritation-free. It is excellent for cleansing the respiratory tract and absolutely safe for the whole family. Salt Lamps in all the bedrooms are a great way of supporting the lungs.
Saline or Salt Solution Nasal Sprays are also a great support for all ages. Using boiled cooled water, make up a simple sea or celtic sea salt water solution with the addition of 1/4 teaspoon of Xylitol and one drop of Lavender, Manuka or Tea Tree essential oils. Squirt up the nostrils on the daily to keep the sinus free of infection and congestion whilst keeping the membranes free of inflammation.

5. Diffusers and Essential Oils
We're big lovers of essential oils here. 
Get all your diffusers running throughout the home. 
Your priority essential oils to support the respiratory system whilst purifying the air are ALL of your Tree Oils...think Douglas Fir, Siberian Fir, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Arborvitea and Cypress. Litsea should also be in your priority list given it's one of THE most powerful oils for cleansing our air and airways. Introduced to the Asian market specifically to combat the extreme air pollution, it will serve you well here. Pair Litsea and your tree oils with Frankincense which will do wonders to support inflammation in the body, safeguard your lungs and protect your cells. Clearify is another excellent blend that combines Litsea with Citrus oils, Frankincense and Cardamom which is another powerful airway support to ease congested breathing. Easy Air of course will be a godsend and it's amazing paired with Frankincense either in the diffuser or applied topically in a balm over the chest.

6. Air Masks
Yes they aren't very aesthetically pleasing but who cares when your health is at stake. Get over it and put one on every time you step foot outdoors. Don't even consider exercising outdoors without one.

We're thinking of you up there and hoping the fires and haze clear up real soon for everyone's sake.

We hope this is helpful info!

Sometimes all you want for dinner is a toasted bagel topped with cashew cheese, smashed avocado, tomato and cracked pepper.⁠⠀
Well that's what we felt like tonight for a lazy Tuesday night quick dinner and boy did it hit the spot.⁠⠀
Gluten free bagels that are gentle on the tummy, high protein and low carb made from scratch every Sunday morning for you.⁠⠀
Fill them with your favourite salad topping, grill them with cheese or toasted with chia strawberry jam.

Kids and adults alike love them!⁠⠀
They keep really well in the freezer so our recommendation would be to order a few bags with your next order so you have some healthy lunch options over the festive period.⁠⠀
Orders close 10AM Wednesdays!⁠⠀
Fasting is a hot trend and with numerous health benefits attached, it's a trend with credentials.  From increasing our energy mood and focus and boosting our metabolism.

Beyond those benefits, research shows dietary restriction (DR) such as intermittent fasting has been shown to extend the lifespan and reduce the development of age-related diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases. 

The coolest thing though is that it also promotes autophagy otherwise known as Apoptosis.

This is basically programmed cell suicide that is undertaken every day throughout the body. Any diseased, misprogrammed or damaged cells should be committed to death as part of our natural orderly processes. When this process doesn't happen as it's designed, that's when diseased cells can go rogue and create mayhem in the body.

Intermittent fasting is now being utilised as an important therapy for those dealing with cancer and other degenerative diseases. Amazing stuff. 

The good news is, that these benefits apply to all of us no matter our state of health.

Fasting is a cheap, effective and powerful way to boost your health in so many ways. 

How to Fast.....

1. Simply increase the time between dinner and breakfast, aiming for a 16 hour fast period. Remember that most of your fasting will be done whilst you sleep so it's not a hard ask.

2. Start with one day a week and consider working your way up to four fasting days a week. 

3. Keep up your water intake. Hydration is vital, as our system will require hydration in order to properly digest during our fast as well as detox and keep everything flowing (including our energy!).

4. Break your fast with fat! This is a great way to encourage your body to continue calling burning fat as it's preferred fuel source. Think MCT Oil, a Bulletproof Coffee, a green smoothie or big green salad with plenty of extra avocado and coconut oil. This will support your energy levels, mood, focus and metabolism whilst keeping the autophagy process active and fired up.


Are you a faster? What benefits have you noticed?
We make Chia Puddings super sexy......⁠⠀
Think velvety chocolate mousse tucked away on the bottom for you to discover, coffee infused pudding following that and pillowy vanilla pudding coming next.⁠⠀
Top that off with a hazelnut coconut crumb and you have a supremely delicious breakfast (or dessert) on the run.⁠⠀
Orders close at 10AM today.
The Game Changers documentary is making waves no doubt about it.

No matter what your dietary preference, just do it well and know the full story before diving head-on into making changes.

Chris Kresser will be joining Joe Rogan today to discuss the documentary and the cherry-picked science it's based upon.

In the meantime, he's put together a preliminary breakdown of some of the biggest flaws with the content.

It's important to note that the documentary creators are banking on the fact majority of the viewers won't go on to investigate the studies mentioned further for themselves. Be the one who does.

It's also equally important to note that the Director and Producer James Cameron has millions of dollars invested in plant-based protein agriculture business eg, soy and pea protein farms. 

Automatically that information means this documentary is hardly unbiased and that's reflected in statements that compare eating a hamburger with plant protein...... come on now.

Enjoy reading this article and make sure you check out the Joe Rogan podcast when it aires later tomorrow.

We'll sign off by saying that we consider our own diet to be plant-based and it includes meat.  The way the term plant-based is used throughout this documentary is in our eyes, misleading. Plant-based does not equal vegan. Plant-based is a diet that consists predominantly of plants. 

Plants should always make up the majority of your plate no matter what your dietary preference and a paleo or low carb diet done properly IS a plant-based diet. 

Having been vegan, even raw vegan for a period, we encourage you to explore and eat in a way that's right for your body. 

Was it right for us? No, and it's not going to be right for everybody.
Such a great point.

We often hear that lemon water affords our body fantastic detoxification benefits but it's a little bit misleading.

Lemon water doesn't 'detox' our body. 

What it DOES do for us though is -

1. Stimulate bile production and aid our digestion. 
2. Provide valuable antioxidants and Vitamin C to protect our cells against oxidation. 
3. Supports our immune system thanks to the Vitamin C content.
4. The citric acid content in lemon increases urine volume which supports proper kidney function and aids with water retention. 
5. Supports a healthy pH level in the body.
6. Stimulates the Vagus Nerve which supports all body functions and organs in the body. 

Lemon water DOES erode the enamel on your teeth which can lead to increased sensitivity, degradation, and discoloration. 

Over time your teeth will become darker which from a vanity perspective, nobody wants!

As you lose microscopic amounts of precious enamel your front teeth will lose their luster. The whiteness of your teeth is related to the reflection of light off your enamel. As you lose your enamel the light begins to show up the darker yellower dentine of the tooth. 

If you want to persist with your lemon water routine, for the love of god, drink through a straw OR a good idea would be to make up a solution of filtered water and aluminum-free bicarbonate of soda and swish it around your mouth in it for 1 minute after using the lemon water. This will alkalize the biofilm and remove the risk of losing your precious enamel.

Have the best day!
