Cannellini beans are low GI which means they provide you with steady energy levels and can also help to control sugar cravings.

Keep your pantry stocked with tins of organic cannellini beans as they can be added to many dishes like pasta sauces and curries, and contain valuable nutrients like leucine, folate, fibre, protein and antioxidants.


1 brown onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced or finely chopped
1 tbs butter
1 x 400g tin organic cannellini beans, drained 4 medium sized ripe tomatoes, diced
1 granny smith apple, peeled and grated
1 tbs apple cider vinegar
1 tbs curry powder
1 tbs tamari sauce
Sea salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat the butter in a medium sized saucepan, add garlic and onion and cook until caramelised.
  • Add remaining ingredients and bring to the boil, then simmer for 12-15 minutes.
  • Serve on rye or gluten free toasted bread, or for a lighter option serve on zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice.

Your Body Has The Answer

As Head of Progressive Kinesiology in the United Kingdom for ten years, before emigrating to Australia in 2010, Elizabeth came from a very science-based approach to health, with a BA Hons degree in Psychology with Education, and first degree in Biology.
Her journey into Kinesiology began in 1994 when she suffered chronic neck pain and after seeing various physical therapists and undergoing massage and manipulation without effect, she finally decided to see a kinesiologist.
During the session her perception of health was completely changed as she was told there was nothing physically wrong with her neck, it was all emotional in origin! By taking a flower essence to help her body heal, within an hour, her neck pain was gone. This inspired Elizabeth to train in kinesiology and she has never looked back.
She founded Your Body Has The Answer Pty Ltd to help share the power of Kinesiology to educate and motivate people to care for their own bodies.
Elizabeth holds Diplomas in Kinesiology, Reflexology, Anatomy and Physiology and Nutrition.
