This feels like you’re having a treat when you’re just having a super-thick, healthy smoothie! You can experiment with all kinds of toppings – macadamia nuts and goji berries work well, or even just a sprinkle of shredded or desiccated coconut.

Lola Berry
Colourful, adventurous and with a healthy dose of Aussie eccentricity, Lola Berry is definitely not your average nutritionist. She blogs, tweets, writes and talks about good health and wholefoods and there's little Lola won't to do to get her message across: eating and living well is easy and fun! Lola's enthusiasm is contagious and her knack for translating the most technical information into easy-to-follow advice has made her one of Australia's most popular nutritionists. She is constantly finding creative ways to help people make small achievable changes in their lives in order to better their health. Lola grew up in a family where health and fitness were celebrated, but by no means a focal point. It wasn't until experiencing her first 'summertime detox' as a teenager that Lola recognised what a huge impact food had on health and wellbeing. Within a few years Lola had completed her Bachelor of Health Science with a major in Nutritional Medicine at Endeavour College of Natural Health. Armed with enthusiasm and tonnes of ideas, Lola made it her mission to help as many people as possible live a healthy, fulfilled life. In 2007, Lola began posting videos full of health tips, nutritional advice and easy, accessible recipes. People responded to her quirky approach and her ‘Fruits and Roots’ webisodes soon led to regular TV appearances and her first book, Lola Berry's Inspiring Ingredients. Lola kept up with her engaging blog and informative e-newsletters and her online following continued to grow. In 2012 Lola released, The 20/20 Diet, which became the number one diet book in Australia within weeks of its release. Lola’s follow-up book, The 20/20 Diet Cookbook, is full of delicious recipes and health creations and has already gone into reprint (even though it was only released in February 2014). Today, Lola is a regular guest on various TV and radio shows and a contributor to numerous magazines and newspapers.
