Why dis-ease is not the leading cause of death!

This time seven years ago my status on Facebook read “eating chicken chips, barbecue chips, sausage rolls, monte carlos, and chocolate…” I wish I had of known then what I know now, that I was quite literally eating myself to death. And I was doing it daily! No wonder I had no energy and constantly felt fatigued! I wasn’t eating real food, and all that junk food led to… well… junk moods!

How do you react when life doesn’t go to plan?

So you have this amazing goal that you’re working towards, you’re 3 months from reaching that year-long vision that you set for yourself when the universe decides to throw a curve ball at you! Your dog broke your housemates vase, your house flooded, your spouse is driving you nuts, or better yet your grandfather reversed into your car with your brother-in-law’s car (that actually happened to me!).

Why I stopped eating my friends

Having transitioned from a strict Paleo diet just under a couple of years ago to a fully plant-based diet was, for me, one of the most profound experiences of my life. And I don’t say that lightly. My whole entire perception of what I was choosing to fuel my body with changed in an instant. And I kind of felt like there was this deep part inside my subconscious that I just could not fight. After 24-ish years of eating every cut of meat imaginable, I turned vegetarian. I later became vegan, and I haven’t looked back since.

Behaving like a badass!

The other day I came to a little realisation that a lot of the time I can be a pretty serious person. After all, I’ve passed the age of 25, I should be all grown up by now hey? I’ve always been one to play by the rules and keep others best interests at heart, no matter what the situation or scenario is. It’s almost as though there is a big side to my personality that has this disease to please. Well, most of the time anyways!

Juicing for the get up and go-go-go hustlers!

Last week I went on a family holiday, one of the locations where we stayed at was Sanctuary Cove on the Gold Coast. It was a small community town that felt a little isolated and I tell you what, during this time I really missed being able to go down the street to get a fresh juice! A freshly pressed juice is something I like to regularly add to my daily intake of nutrients.

Why dieting doesn’t work!

So many people regularly ask me if ‘diet x’ is better than ‘diet y’, or what “diet” would I suggest. From paleo, to raw vegan, to intermittent fasting, the Atkin’s diet, the soup diet, and probably hundreds more! It’s no wonder why people are so bloody confused, one minute fat makes you fat and the next carbs make you fat. With best-selling diet books completely contradicting each other, how is one to know which diet is the so-called “best”?

The road to awareness and your health

The me five years ago was not the same me. I wasn’t as consciously aware of what I was putting into my body, and I wasn’t aware that I inherently had a choice as to what I was doing and where my life was headed. I ate the standard three meals a day without question, and the weekly McDonalds drive through on the way home from the nightclub was just a standard Friday or Saturday night for me. I just plodded along, had lots of fun along the way, and did what was expected in order to fit into the mold that society had created for me (sound familiar?). I didn’t really think to question any of it either.

A few tips for surviving the festive season

With the festive season coming up, many people (in fact almost everyone) will no doubt be enjoying this time with their family and close friends and making that “guilt free” exception! There’s absolutely nothing wrong with indulging in life’s pleasures, especially during a time of celebration, but be sure to set your intentions and stick to them. The most important thing leading up to Christmas and the New Year is to be responsible, not just with what you drink but also with what you eat. 🙂
