The Blurb:

LOVE YOUR GUTS AND YOUR GUTS WILL LOVE YOU BACK!

Simple and delicious recipes to improve gut health, lose weight and feel wonderful.

Gut health has a huge impact on our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Eating foods that promote a diverse "microbiome" can have dramatic effects on your health, including your weight. Knowing which foods will feed those good bacteria and keep the bad guys away can be confusing, but it doesn't need to be!

Linda Frylink Anderson amazed us with her tales of adventure and sailing the world in Sailing in my Sarong and Salvage in my Sarong. The extended holiday, regular sundowners and indulgence in exotic cuisines around the world had its downside though, and the time came for Linda to make a healthy change.

She lost a sensational 30 kilograms (66 pounds) quickly and simply by eating for gut health! Now Linda is showing you how to LOVE YOUR GUTS too, with this collection of delicious, simple meals to make loving your guts easy and fun!

A doggy tale.

26 January 2019 | Iluka Emporium, Iluka, NSW
David rocked up on his motor bike with his dog Chester complete with helmet and goggles, parking outside the Iluka Emporium. They both wandered in and I knew this guy was on a bike because of his boots, long pants and long sleeved shirt and kerchief. The other customers at the Emporium that morning wandered in wearing bathing suits and sarongs. It was a stinking hot day of around 34 degrees C. I got chatting with David and discovered his dream to also sail around the world. I signed a copy of my book for him and before he took off this impromptu photo shoot took place. I hope Chester also enjoys the book and hopefully one day accompanies his master on a different kind of ride over the waves.

Catch Up on the Clarence River

14 January 2019 | Maclean, New South Wales, Australia
A very lovely catch up with Women Who Sail Australia friends Justine Porter, Diane Lippiatt and their hubbies Glen and Cal. I first connected with Justine a few years ago when she was about to sail their newly built catamaran Shima, a Mumby Cyber 48, from the Philippines. We chatted on line for a long time as she and Glen continued their trip from Gove in the Northern Territory after weathering 2 cyclones on the hard stand. We finally met in person last year at the annual WWSA Gathering in Post Stephens sharing a unit with a bunch of women for the weekend. Such a great time! So now Shima sits comfortably on a pontoon in the town of Maclean on the Clarence River. It was the first time I had been on board. Such a spacious beautiful boat. The other couple known to me on line are the founders of Sailing Australia, Cal and Dianne Lippiatt who were on board when I arrived. I travelled the quick way by car from Iluka! A very pleasant afternoon indeed swapping yarns.

Sailing Dinghy for grandkids

11 January 2019
Bill has been building this Argie 15 sailing dinghy for a while now and it’s almost complete. Everything is new apart from the mast. He painted it red as he happened to have some red paint, not new either. A tentative name is Clarety. Before launching either in the Clarence river or Mooloolaba, she needs to have a registered trailer. In this photo 11 year old grandson Joe is admiring his Pa’s handy work. She was built mostly on the Sunshine Coast before we moved 3 years ago to our off the grid home in the bush. Hence the sea of green! Another little ship for Captain Underpants’ fleet.
