Last Monday I created and launched a project that I am incredibly proud of. It’s something that has made everything seem worth it, and I can already see the good that it’s done. But mostly, I’ve seen how much it is greatly needed.
The Babe Collective is a space created for women to express themselves and celebrate their awesome.
In a week and a half, I’ve collected nearly 800 babes who, despite not always feeling the most confident, most interesting, most amazing people (even though they all are) are able to find the good in themselves, and share it in this safe space, and it’s so amazing. These women are all strong, all beautiful, fascinating, intelligent, generous, inspiring, wonderful people – my hope is that this space starts to show them all of these things and more, and it feels like, for the most part, it’s working, with regular themes and strategies to actively practice their self-love.
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.
Don’t forget to checkout my giveaway on my Facebook page, which ends TOMORROW MORNING
And if you want some specific diet and lifestyle tips and recipes and you live in Brisbane, check out my next workshop, Nutrition for Fatigue, 6pm, 24th June 2015 at Little Tokyo Two
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
One of the things I like best about nutrition and my fellow nutritional medicine praccies is that most of the time, we find ourselves talking about food. We share new recipes, or ways to include a particular food we are obsessed with/have discovered to have powerful medicinal properties, the foods we are craving and basically get to learn even more about our favourite topic on a more heartfelt and authentic level – some of our supervising lecturers have been known to notice they eat more when they are around our food-obsessed modality, a testament to how infectious our love of food can be when we get together. We truly live and breathe our modality.
It is with this in mind that I asked my fellow foodie babe and nutrition student, Jaime Maguire to share with you a few food products she currently can’t get enough of, while I shared mine on her blog (because honestly, it’s hard for us to talk about anything else) and I’m so excited to share her list with you.
I get a lot of questions about my stance on the whole Belle Gibson saga, so I thought I’d have a chat with you about it and my thoughts on the wellness industry in social media (mainly Instagram). I’d love to hear what you think about what I’ve said in the comments below
In the wake of the controversy surrounding the creator of The Whole Pantry app, Belle Gibson in last 24 hours or so, a blogger I follow, Pip Lincolne, linked to this fabulous blog post by Lila Wolff. It pointed out something that I, as a blogger, constantly struggle with – the desire to broaden my audience and in doing so, have a “successful” blog.
