BARE FAQ

WHAT IS THE BARE GUIDE?

The BARE Guide is designed to help women feel happy and healthy, while enjoying all their favourite foods. I've always believed that healthy eating doesn’t need to be complicated or boring. BARE teaches you how to enjoy a balanced and healthy relationship with food without restriction. With over 120 recipes, flexible weekly planners and an abundance of educational resources, BARE focuses on taste and ease just as much as nutrition.

From burgers and curries to pancakes and banana bread, each recipe is quick, easy and, most importantly, super delicious! I've worked with an in-house dietician to ensure BARE gives your body all the daily macronutrients your body needs to thrive.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE ACCESS TO THE BARE GUIDE?

With the BARE guide you receive lifetime access! 

WHAT LEVEL OF COOKING EXPERIENCE DO I NEED?

None at all. All of the recipes are designed to be quick and easy, and beginners are super welcome and will have a community of support available! If you’re a experienced cook, I promise you’ll enjoy these delicious recipes just as much as the beginners!

I’VE TRIED SO MANY PROGRAMS BEFORE, WHAT MAKES BARE DIFFERENT?

BARE first and foremost is NOT a diet or about restriction in any way! It’s all about balance and enjoying food. You won’t find extensive meal plans, complicated recipes or expensive ingredients here. BARE gives you all the resources you need to build a healthy relationship with food but most importantly, it shows you that you can cook and enjoy all your favourite foods, while feeling happy and healthy.

I HAVE THE ORIGINAL BARE EBOOK, IS THIS JUST AN UPDATED VERSION? DO I NEED TO BUY THE BARE GUIDE?

The BARE Guide is completely NEW!

If you bought the BARE ebook I launched in 2018, you will need to repurchase the BARE Guide as it is completely NEW! From recipes and weekly planners to resources and support, everything is new and exclusive to the BARE Guide.

I DON'T LIVE IN AUSTRALIA, CAN I STILL PURCHASE BARE?

Absolutely!! BARE is available world wide so everyone can enjoy it.

ARE CALORIES PROVIDED IN BARE?

Personally, I do NOT believe in counting calories, as it is time consuming and unsustainable. Using the AGHE has ensured the BARE models provide an appropriate amount of calories and nutrients each day. Therefore, I haven’t included the calories for each recipe.

WHAT DO I DO IF I’M STILL HUNGRY?

As everyone is different, you may need to slightly adjust the portion sizes of your main meals, breakfasts or snacks to better suit YOU. Be careful, sometimes thirst or boredom can be mistaken for hunger. Try to avoid overeating and make sure you’re hydrated so you’re not making the portion sizes bigger and causing yourself to over eat.

CAN I DO MY OWN FOOD THING?

I have designed the weekly meal planners to give you as much flexibility and freedom as possible. I recommend you stick to each recipe as closely as possible. However, you can create your own weekly meal plans as you like.

WHAT ABOUT MY FAMILY, CAN THEY EAT THESE MEALS TOO?

YES!! Everyone is welcome to eat from BARE! I have tailored the recipes to one serve, so just multiply the recipe by how many people you’re cooking for.

I WANT TO CONTACT YOU, HOW CAN I REACH OUT?

I’M WORRIED MY SHOPPING LIST IS GOING TO BE CRAZY!

If that first shop is worrying you, please don’t stress! Your initial shopping list may be pricey because you’re stocking up on staples. These staples will last AGES in your kitchen and will bring your cost of groceries down each week.

WILL MY DETAILS BE KEPT PRIVATE?

YES. Your details are private information and won’t be shared!

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE TIME TO COOK?

We made our meal plans just for this reason! The example weekly planners are heavily meal prep focused to reduce your time in the kitchen during busy weeks.

ARE SNACKS INCLUDED IN BARE?

YES!! Of course they are. I love a good snack. Check out your Model 1 and Model 2 snack recipes.

CAN I EAT OUT AT RESTAURANTS?

YES! I have devised an entire section addressing this in the guide. It’s important to catch up with your loved ones over breakfast, lunch or dinner. Please refer to the ‘Eating Out’ section in your BARE Guide for my top healthy eating tips on what to eat while eating out.

I’M VEGETARIAN, WHAT DO I DO?

This version of BARE is a regular (meat-based) guide. I have included some vegetarian options throughout the guide. However, if you do want to make meat-based meals vegetarian refer to the ‘Swaps and Alternatives’ chart in your BARE resources to make the adequate swaps when swapping ingredients. For example, 100g of lean meat equates to 170g tofu.

CAN I PRINT THE RECIPES, MEAL PLANNERS AND SHOPPING LISTS?

YES! I have designed all of these documents to be printable. Both the meal planners and shopping lists will help you plan out your weeks, stay organised and shop for your ingredients.
