About Asphyxia

Food and Nutrition

  • Traditional Foods
    My health has dramatically improved after changing my diet for a more traditional way of eating, as advised by Sally Fallon.
  • Food Flower Poster
    Forget the food pyramid! It was developed by the agricultural industry, not by nutritionists. Instead, print this Food Flower poster, which shows a visual guide to choosing nutritious and satisfying traditional foods.
  • Sourdough bread Recipes
    I make delicious sourdough bread in my bread machine - recipes and tips here.
  • Raw Food
    Should we be eating a diet of 100% raw food? Here's what I found by way of "scientific proof".
  • Raw garlic to cure colds & flu
    If you feel a cold or flu coming on, eat a whole clove of raw garlic, three times a day - it works miracles.

Beautiful article! I'm so inspired! Thanks.

Absolutely awesome! Thanks so much for sharing... I love reading about your adventures:)

Awesome article :) How did they come to find you? Online?

It's nice to spread the news about living sustainably, because you do send out a good ripple effect. Even when people are trying, reading your blog and others like it remind us to think outside the square and use what we have on hand, or find another solution - it is possible.

Thanks for sharing your life and ideas, Asphyxia. :)

I was surprised and delighted to find your article when I opened the Leader the other week. It's an amazing feature article and you all look great, not to mention how beautiful your garden looks. It's certainly got me thinking about my desire to be more 'peasant-like' again. Congratulations!

Umm... that above comment was from me. For some reason, typepad is calling me 'D'. Oh well.


Thanks Meg, for your gorgeous comment! Go the peasant lifestyle, eh? Glad you'll be having a true taste of it in a few weeks' time too.. thank you!!

And Catherine, they found me through the Transition Towns Darebin newsletter. I did a workshop about angora rabbit raising and the process of going from bunny to clothing, and in the workshop I mentioned something about wanting to know how medieval women did it. Well this was written up in the newsletter as "Asphyxia wants to live like a medieval woman"!!! Which isn't quite what I meant! Ha! But a journalist read that comment and wanted to know more.. and it all went from there.. teehee!

Love Fixie xx

Hi Asphixia,
I came across your blog and I am finding it so inspiring. Your house, garden and your little fella all look so amazing. Well done to you and Paula.

Hi June!

How lovely to see you on here. Thanks for stopping by and also leaving me a comment. I still hope to make it to Ireland one day :) I hope you and your family are well,

Love Asphyxia
