Barefoot helps schoolkids take the next step

MPM Nov 2017A19V0614.JPG

Starting primary school or transitioning from grade six to secondary school can be tough. Making the change can be even more challenging for kids who need help with managing behaviour, reading social cues or practical school skills like handwriting and organisation. This is where Barefoot OT in Rosebud can help.

Barefoot OT works closely with you to guide your child by focusing on three key areas: the child, their teacher and you. It recognises that each child is unique, and it works together with families and schools to achieve long-lasting and confidence-building outcomes.

Barefoot OT’s Get Ready For Prep and Get Ready For Secondary School packages include four group sessions where children learn to manage their skills, behaviour or anxiety more independently. Parent forums offer support and deliver strategies on how to prepare your child and provide practical help like getting organised in the mornings. A Barefoot Occupational Therapist goes to the school to meet your child’s teacher and see the school environment, which encourages resilience and a happier time in the classroom.

Call Barefoot OT today to get your child ready for their next giant step. There are rooms in Rosebud and Frankston and there’s also a rural program in Boneo that includes horse therapy. There’s a pediatric physiotherapist and speech pathologists on site in Rosebud too.

Protein – The Key to Feeling Satisfied By Kate Save

Protein is one of the three macronutrients, alongside carbohydrates and fat, that is a necessary component of a healthy diet. The protein that we consume and those that are naturally made in our bodies are molecules that are made up of ‘essential’ and ‘non-essential’ amino acids. These are often referred to as ‘building blocks’ as they function to construct our muscles and bodily tissues.

Protein has the potential to play a key role in several aspects of body weight and appetite regulation. It is well established that consuming protein-rich foods as part of a well-balanced diet promotes feelings of satiety and fullness, to help us feel more satisfied. This decreases our desire to over-eat, while facilitating weight loss through reduced energy consumption.

Not only is it important to incorporate a protein source at each meal to promote prolonged appetite regulation, it is also necessary to ingest foods that are naturally high in protein alongside a form of carbohydrate. This will slow the release of glucose into the blood stream and assist to stabilise our blood sugar levels. Consistent sugar levels endorse a balance in energy levels; increase fat breakdown and the likelihood of hunger spikes. These factors are not only vital for short-term weight loss, but also long-term weight management.

You may be thinking, where can I find protein? Our most readily digested sources can be found in all animal by-products. This includes lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy-containing foods. Protein can in fact be found in some plant-based sources such as nuts, soybeans, lentils and legumes; however, the amino acid profile of these foods is different to those found in animal products, and therefore are not as easily absorbed. 

Our height, weight, muscle mass and activity level determine how much protein we should be consuming every day. As a general rule, the recommended dietary intake (RDI) is:

* 0.75g/kg for adult women

* 0.84g/kg for adult men

* Around 1g/kg for pregnant and breastfeeding women, and for men and women over 70 years.

At Be Fit Food, a team of experienced chefs and highly trained dietitians have worked together to ensure every meal and snack includes the appropriate proportion of protein a nutritionally adequate and balanced diet consists of. Each meal and snack is scientifically formulated to include enough of each nutrient to keep us satisfied, nourished and healthy. So forget the artificial shakes, bars and supplements and choose a whole-food diet which improves your health and well-being while you are losing weight.

graphicstock-attractive-young-woman-athlete-stretching-hands-outdoors-in-the-morning_BdMR6MTHhl.jpg

For the past six years the funwalk has set off from the Mount Martha Village back carpark in the playground area with either a 5km option to Craigie Rd and back, or a 10km option to Fishies Beach, Lilo Café and return.  Last year’s funwalk raised more than $20,000, and all proceeds from this year’s walk will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund.

It’s on Sunday, November 12, at 8.45am, with registrations from 7.45am. There will be a barbecue, raffles and lots of prizes as well as face-painting and balloons for the kids.  Donations of $5 a child, $10 an adult and $20 a family are to be paid on the day but you can pre-register at walk.jdrf.org.au/vic/mount-martha-village to seek your own sponsorship for the event.

If you’d rather not walk but would still like to help, volunteers are needed from 6-11.30am to help with raffle tickets, registrations, packing showbags and leading the walk – just email [email protected] for details.  And if you’d like to be a corporate sponsor, allowing you to put items in the showbags and have a presence on the day with your own stall or marquee, email [email protected]

How to achieve the perfect colour

LornaColour2017Final-001.jpg

When you colour your hair, visiting a reputable precision colourist is not the only thing that helps you get the best result.  The power of perfection is in your hands.  Follow Zúmay’s Top Three Tips before you book to guarantee you get the look you desire:

 

1. Do your homework: Keep photos of both the looks you do and don’t love.  It makes a huge difference when you and your colourist share the same vision.  Even if you’re an expert in all colouring lingo, photos will ensure you are explaining your look exactly the way your colourist would.

 

2. Go in for a free consultation: Your desired colour could take as little as an hour or even multiple appointments. A consultation will help avoid disappointment and guarantee your booking(s) allow enough time to give you exactly the look you’re dreaming of.

 

3. Be realistic about your commitment: Be true to your nature.  If your colourist knows how often you will realistically come in for touch-ups, they can determine the technique and colour that you will best be able to maintain. 

 

Once your hair is exactly the way you want, there are a few tips you should follow after your appointment as well.  For more information about how to keep your colour perfect, visit www.zumay.com/blog

There is a reason Zumay has been a leading hair salon on the Peninsula for over 26 years -

Essential oils at heart of perfume

Kis-image-1.jpg

Using essential oils for perfume is a great way to smell fantastic, feel great and promote wellness!

Kis Organic Perfumes are locally produced by Kis My Body, eco-friendly and glamorous. What makes them different to most perfume is that they are blended using only essential oils and then added to organic sugar cane alcohol or organic jojoba (alcohol-free).

What is an essential oil?  An oil is "essential" in the sense that it contains the "essence of" the plant's fragrance. Unfortunately most perfumes are created nowadays using mainly synthetic fragrances.

Using essential oils for healing purposes is often called aromatherapy, which is a holistic treatment seeking to improve physical, mental and emotional health.

Why organic? Like eating organically, essential oils that are produced organically are free from toxic pesticides and fertilisers which may negatively impact humans and the planet.

All Kis products use as many certified organic ingredients as possible.

The Kis Range focuses on essential oils, and they are present in all products except the Kis Essentials Vitamin C anti-ageing cream, which is fragrance-free.

Available online and at a stockist near you.

Eat the rainbow

IMG_4730_7-2999 copy.jpg

We have all heard it before, but what does eating the rainbow really mean and why do we need to do it?  It simply refers to getting as many different coloured fruits and vegetables into your diet as possible. Why? As a general rule, each different coloured vegetable or fruit contains a range of different vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals.

Red vegetables contain an antioxidant called lycopene;

Purple/blue fruits and vegetables contain anthocyanin, which protects cells from damage;

Orange vegetables and fruits contain carotenoids, some of which are converted to vitamin A, which helps with eyesight;

Leafy greens are a good source of folate and iron;

Brown/white vegetables and fruit contain potassium.

In an ideal world, we would consume five serves of vegetables a day. Most people are lucky to achieve half this. Does that seem impossible to achieve? It doesn’t have to be. Say you have two to three serves of cooked vegies or salad every night with dinner; work backwards - all you need to do is find room for another two or three serves a day.

Breakfast:  If you have eggs for breakfast, consider putting quarter of an avocado on your toast and cook some tomato and spinach on the side - that’s at least another one or two serves. Or if you have toast with Vegemite, swap it for toast with tomato and mushrooms.

Lunch: Obviously by having a salad with a protein component you’ll be pretty close to meeting your requirements, but if that doesn’t take your fancy, why not try a wrap with tuna and salad, which will cover at least a serve. Chicken and vegetable soup will contain about one serve, or if you’re a sucker for a toasted ham and cheese sandwich, add some tomato, mushroom and baby spinach and you can count that as one serve.

Snacks: If you are having nibbles with cheese and dips, add a whole heap of cut-up vegie sticks – carrot, celery, cucumber, capsicum, even cherry tomatoes. Not only will it make your platter look nice, it will give you an alternative to crackers for your dip or cheese.  Vegie sticks for a mid-afternoon work snack or even a good old stick of celery with peanut butter or cream cheese will count for close to one serve a day.

All of the Be Fit Food meals and soups have four to 12 different vegetables, ensuring that a variety of vitamins and minerals are present in every meal. If you are following the Be Fit Food meal plans, make the most of the unlimited low-starch vegetables that are part of the plan to ensure that you are meeting your five serves a day.

 

From new year to boo scare By Yazmine Lomax

IMG_0238.jpg

While many people think Halloween is an American tradition, it’s actually a Celtic celebration dating back almost 2000 years. What began as a way to ring in the New Year on November 1 has now evolved into a night of dressing up, trick-or-treating, and scoffing the entire contents of a jack-o’-lantern. Australia has been slow to adopt Halloween but it seems like it’s finally found a home Down Under – so, what’s it like on the Peninsula?

It’s all aboard Mornington Railway’s Halloween Spook Train! Each October, the famous traditional steam train undergoes a ghoulish transformation to celebrate the scary season.

“We have a resident ghost or spook who rides the trains, music, platform decorations, train decorations, and face painting on the platform,” says Mornington Railway event co-ordinator Marg Ffrench. “We encourage our volunteers and passengers to dress up in Halloween outfits.”

Marg says more and more passengers are flocking to the spook train every year, reflecting the growing popularity of Halloween on the Peninsula. And for those seeking an extra thrill, there’s even talk of adding a twilight or night train in the future.

Little Shop of Horrors Costumery in Mornington is also a big fan of Halloween and is preparing for an influx of witches, goblins and ghouls looking for a suitably scary outfit and some frightfully good make-up for a night of trick-or-treating – see the feature opposite.

Meanwhile, the Frankston Spooky Adventure Path is also running over the Halloween period.  The Spooky Adventure Path is a trick-or-treating trail of Frankston businesses for children, proving just how popular Halloween has become in our neck of the woods!

 

Frankston’s future by design By Kate Sears

P8086F4.jpg

Frankly Frankston speaks to Frankston Council urban designer Meghan Doherty about her work and how she sees the city changing over the next 20 years.

Could you tell us a bit about what you do at the council?

I provide urban design advice on proposed developments within the municipality. This may be for housing and apartment proposals, streetscape redevelopments, commercial development and even shop frontages. 

What types of areas/buildings do you work on?

Some public spaces (streetscapes etc) but the vast majority is housing and commercial development. This extends to individual housing, unit development, apartment design, mixed-use developments, even aged care and childcare developments.

How important is sustainable design?

Frankston City Council has a proud history with sustainability initiatives and won the Australian Sustainable Cities Award in 2015. Sustainability in any form of design is crucial for a variety of social, environmental and financial reasons; the implications of sustainable (and unsustainable) design extend well beyond our immediate community. Urban design has numerous sustainability considerations including energy performance, water resources, stormwater management, transport, waste management and the urban ecology. Design longevity is also a key indicator for sustainability, so how our spaces can adapt to change is also important.

What’s your favorite part about your industry?

I love the collaboration, whether it is between departments, external professionals or the community – the diversity in my projects ensures I’m never bored and the work is never ‘stale’. Being able to see the physical results of your work is also very satisfying, especially when you can see the benefits reflected in the community.

What/who would be your favourite design/designer?

I don’t have a favourite design or designer per se but I’ve always had a fascination for coastal designs and projects that manage to integrate with the landscape rather than use the landscape to ‘grandstand’. Paula Hayes was one of the first designers who caught my attention and I still think her work is fantastic.

How do you see Frankston changing over the coming years?

It’s so exciting to be working in Frankston at the moment. There’s a lot of change happening; some big infrastructure developments are giving Frankston a fresh start and new vitality and the results can already be seen. Frankston has so much potential as a seaside city so it will be interesting to see the change and push for revitalisation over the next 20 years, including upgraded streetscapes, new buildings and new public spaces.

What makes urban design attractive in your eyes?

Good urban design comes in all shapes and sizes but is generally well considered and responsive to its context.

What’s your preferred style of design?

I prefer highly considered, fine-grain design – often with a quirky or playful detail.

Is obesity a disease? - BE FIT FOOD

fat-man-with-a-very-big-stomach-as-he-is-pregnant_SKOoE70Vs.jpg

The question of whether obesity should be called a ‘disease’ has sparked controversy for many decades.  One concern about labelling obesity as a disease process is the finding that some people with obesity are actually healthy and do not have any risk factors for associated diseases such as prediabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure) and dyslipidaemia (abnormal cholesterol), although they may be victims of stigmatisation.  However, studies have shown that in the long term more than half of these individuals will develop some of these obesity-related diseases and orthopaedic problems during their lifetime.  Therefore, it is of utmost importance that we treat obesity seriously and start working more on prevention strategies.

An abundance of food, low physical activity, and other environmental factors interact with our genetic susceptibility which results in obesity.  It is believed that foods which are particularly high in energy and low in nutrients such as sugar-sweetened, fatty and highly processed foods are the primary agent in inducing obesity.  The magnitude of obesity and its adverse health effects fit the epidemiological model of a disease process only, unlike an infectious microbe such as that which causes the flu, food is believed to be the culprit.

Reversing obesity will prevent most of its detrimental effects, but unlike a disease you either do or do not have, it is a continuum, like baldness, and progresses with time.  Therefore, you need to make significant dietary changes such as reducing total calories, sugar and non-nutritious, processed foods first, then try to increase physical activity. 

One benefit of rapid weight loss for obesity is that it is motivating - who doesn’t want to lose 3-5kg per week? Most importantly, consider doing this the healthiest and safest possible way you can with real food, then you will be able to continue a modified version of this diet long-term once you have lost the desired amount of weight.  Be Fit Food is scientifically formulated for rapid weight loss. It is virtually nutritionally complete, made of only real foods, including four to 12 vegetables per meal, and contains no added sugars - plus our meals are also low in salt (sodium).  Be Fit Food is doctor and dietitian-designed and endeavours not only to assist people to lose weight, but to educate them about portion control and nutritious choices to ensure they keep the weight off for life.

The ultimate in skin rejuvenation - The Beauty Emporium

BeautyEmporium2.jpeg

“Help!  I’m another year older and have really noticed a huge change in my skin’s appearance.  The lines and wrinkles are creeping in, my skin feels dry and sun spots are starting to appear.  What can I do?”

We’re glad you asked - the answer is Dermapen.

What is Dermapen?

Dermapen is the latest and most advanced form of skin needling or collagen induction therapy. It works on the body’s natural “healing cascade”, which, when triggered, will send collagen and elastin production into overdrive, in turn giving us the ultimate in skin rejuvenation. Better yet, unlike other treatment modalities, there is minimal to zero downtime - just fresh, healthy, youthful skin.

What can Dermapen treat?

The list is endless.  However, the most common concerns we treat include fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, acne, rosacea, broken capillaries, open pores, texture, scarring and stretch marks. Dermapen is suitable for each and every skin type and is especially great for the eyes and lips. 

What can I expect in a treatment?

We begin with a thorough consultation, cleanse, exfoliation, Dermapen application, finishing with a hydrating and soothing recovery mask. The treatment occurs while you are cocooned in one of our heated facial beds. 

If you’ve been looking for an anti-ageing treatment with quick results that will make your skin glow, come and see our friendly therapists at The Beauty Emporium or visit us at thebeautyemporium.com.au

See your skin in a new light by Aleshia Fowler - Saya Beaute Bar

skinscope.png

Saya Beaute’ Bar has a brand new personalised Skinscope consultation and we are really excited to share it with you.

The device was developed for skincare professionals to help educate their clients on the importance of proper skincare. We perform this in the treatment room and thoroughly cleanse the skin, then we position your face in the Skinscope. Using the different settings we can look at your skin on the surface using the LED Daylight mode.  We then switch to the LED UV-light mode which enables us to see into the deeper layers. This is where we can help to prevent the signs of future skin concerns.

While some skin concerns and imperfections are visible in everyday light, some are only visible under UV light, which highlights damage beneath the skin’s surface by detecting the skin’s fluorescence. The device also allows the therapist to take images and document the consultation to see how the skin changes over the course of the treatment plan recommended for the client.

A 45-minute personalised Skinscope consultation with one of our therapists is $55, redeemable on products purchased on the day. We would love to join you on your skin journey and help you achieve the skin goals you’ve always wanted!

Killer weight loss plan lures sharks By Andrea Kellett

Be Fit Food founder and Mornington Peninsula Magazine columnist Kate Save is reeling.
The Mornington Peninsula dietitian/exercise physiologist, 33, and her business partner, bariatric surgeon Dr Geoff Draper, have secured a $300,000 investment in their food business from Boost Juice founder Janine Allis, and it’s making headlines nationally.

The pair appeared on the Channel 10 show Shark Tank on August 15, where they blew the sharks away with their RAPID weight loss meal plan that can strip up to 10kg in just two weeks. In the days that followed, Kate’s phone ran hot. “It’s ridiculous!” she laughed. “We have just done eight weeks’ worth of trading in one day. We are overwhelmed.”

Be Fit Food is dietitian-designed, chef-created and prepared, home-delivered food formulated around the ketogenic diet — high fat, moderate protein, low carbohydrate. It is designed to create rapid weight loss with “real food” instead of supplements or shakes.

And theirs is a business backed by science. “There is science out there now to show that people who lose weight rapidly keep it off for longer,” Kate told Studio 10 during an interview in Sydney after the show aired. “We follow the science of the CSIRO.”

Geoff and Kate applied to appear on Shark Tank a year ago, realising they needed a business partner with logistical expertise and an understanding of the food industry to help them take Mornington-based Be Fit Food to the next level – national.

To find out more about Kate and Be Fit Food, head to befitfood.com.au, and of course, check out Kate’s regular column in the Health and Beauty section of our magazine. Be Fit Food is located at 49B Mornington-Tyabb Rd, Mornington. Shark Tank screens on Ten on Tuesdays at 7.30pm.
