Share your blogging journey with us. When did it begin and why did you decide to start?

My blog began in July 2012, and it came after a rather big and indulgent trip to the States.  I decided on my return that I would try a purely plant based diet for 12 weeks.  So, 1 month before my 34th birthday, I did it.  I remember telling people about it and someone suggested I should write about my experience.  That’s when the blog was born.  It was a really good way of keeping myself accountable, sharing recipes I came up with a long the way and documenting what changes, physical or mental, that I undertook as a result.  My journey is still going and a lot has happened so the blog has evolved to reflect that, and will hopefully continue as long as I’m around.

Outside of creating beautiful content for your followers, what are you most passionate about in life?  

It’s cliche but I’m truly passionate about my family and friends.  I think in today’s world, it’s easy to get caught up in the superficial but when it all comes down to it, you have nothing if you don’t have anyone around you to share it with.

What is your daily health, wellness and fitness routine?

I used to be really regimented and would try to do all the right things, but now I take a more relaxed approach and realise that every day is different so your body and mind requirements are going to reflect that.  My non-negotiables are daily meditation, fresh homemade food, a superfood smoothie, kissing my family, and moving my body for an hour each day.  I love exercise, it’s a natural stress reliever and mood elevator so apart from keeping me fit, it also keeps me mentally well.  I love to run, it’s just another form of meditation in my opinion.  I balance that with resistance training using my own body and light weights.  Rest is also important so getting a day to do just that is a priority, and this includes taking a break from technology too.

What’s your favourite way to utilise Super Foods to help you get through a busy day? 

As a nurse, I do shift work, mainly the late shift so I really love a good smoothie, specially around the 3 pm mark when my body is craving an energy injection.  It beats coffee and keeps me going until dinner time so I’m not munching mindlessly on unhealthy foods.  My favourite is a green smoothie made from baby spinach, cucumber, celery, green apple, lemon juice, coconut water, avocado and 1 tsp of the Nature’s Way Flavoured Spirulina.  It’s really low sugar but tastes amazing thanks to the spirulina powder.
