A Day in the Life: What THIS nutritionist eats

I always say that healthy eating doesn’t need to be complicated to get results, and since I get asked a lot about what my diet looks like, I thought I would share with you a bit of a “day in the life”. It’s no muss, no fuss, whole foods and lots of variety.

5 Tips for Productivity (from someone who has been pretty bad at it in the past)

You know, working from home, or alone can be super hard sometimes, right? Well, it is for me at least.

But I’m having one of those I’m-on-a-freaking-ROLL moments right now due to a whole host of things that have happened over the last few weeks, so I thought I’d share the, uh, “secrets to my success” (yes, getting shit done is a measure of success for me, even if I don’t yet have much to show for it) because exams are also a thing that are happening for people, and I think you guys could totally benefit from the things I’ve learned while flailing about.

1. Get yourself a planner system of some sort

This seems obvious, but DUDE – I have been struggling with my system all year and it totally sucks.

I had a diary – nope!

I used To-Do lists – nope!

I tried online planners – NOPETY NOPE NOPE NOPE!

The thing that saved me? Continue reading

What I’ve Learnt from not Having a Car

It’s been about six months now that I’ve been living without a car. I mean, I do own one, its just sitting in a paddock somewhere in Wodonga quietly rusting until I save up enough to get it running again. Anyway, here in Brisbane I don’t have a car, so I’ve had to figure out how to get by without one.

It may seem like a completely daunting task for some (especially here in Brisbane, where most people I’ve spoken to would rather not use public transport), but honestly, it hasn’t been too bad. While I can’t just jump in a car and go to a shop, friend’s houses or restaurants on a whim, I’ve had to rely on public transport and my own two feet, and for the majority of the time its been a positive experience, so I’d like to share with you some of the things I’ve learned from it.

Tea Fiend: Miranda’s Tea Guide – Ginger Tea

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve probably noticed that I really really (REALLY) love tea. I love a hot cup of earl grey on a cold and slow morning, I love a bubbly and naturally sweet iced tea in the summer time, I love collecting new flavours and I even bathe in the stuff! But the thing I love most about tea is discovering the medicinal properties of the different herbs – meaning that you can drink specific teas to help your body do its thing!

From time to time, I’d like to explore with you these medicinal properties (goodness knows I need another reason to drink more tea, don’t I?) in my Tea Fiend series. Just remember, if you are going to explore these options, best to opt for organic tea (I’d be happy to give you a guide to my favourite brands within this series – just ask!), and don’t be afraid to try a pre-made blend (it will only taste better that way) or even experiment in blending stand-alone herbs that you like (you never know what you will come up with).

Ginger Tea (Zingiber officinale)

Writer’s Block

I’m sitting here on my bed in my very messy room, coughing my guts up and struggling to come up with a topic for you guys. It’s 4.45pm on a Monday and I’ve walked the 50 minutes to The Valley, with a quick lunch break on the way, printed off resumes, spend 2 hours writing on a topic that I figured out will need more than a few hours to adequately cover (stay tuned), then walked the 50 minutes back home and I still don’t know what to write.

On my walk home I did come to the realisation that its been a while since I wrote something personal on here. In my goal to inspire you I forgot that this isn’t just about the way that I can help you, but (selfishly) the way that you can help me, which in its own way helps you.
