Ripe Journal recently blogged about our SuperFoods & created an almond butter cup AND a raw chocolate strawberry cake.
We find out more about her blogging journey…..
Well, I never thought I would end up a blogger – it was never on my mind. I fought with the idea for a whole year before I actually launched it.
I’ve always loved eating and sharing meals with friends and family. The more I went out and tried something I would “check in on Facebook” and after a few minutes, I would get so many comments.
Then people started to call or message me asking me where they should go and eat, new coffee spot/dessert spot…or a nice place to take their girlfriend/boyfriend to.
All this food talk got me thinking, maybe I should start a food blog.
It was 2013 and food blogs where everywhere, and they all looked the same. I knew I wanted mine to stand out and I didn’t want it to look like every other food blog out there. I also,had to think ahead and visualise what this “blog” would look like in a few years and I knew I didn’t just want it to be about food, I wanted to eventually talk about travel and lifestyle, So I needed a name for my blog.
I chose “Ripe” because it means seasonal, or picked at its peak, when its fresh – and thats what I wanted to offer. Ripe Journal was launched in September 2013. But, the crazy thing was, I didn’t even own a camera.
Travelling – I’m always in constant wanderlust and planning my next adventure.
Another one is being involved my local church community.
It’s changed quite dramatically recently as I’ve just started my 8 week journey of I Quit Sugar, so I’ve been following a dedicated meal plan, packed with veg and protein which I’m really enjoying, but I’m seriously craving doughnuts all the time. In terms of fitness, I usually hit the gym 2-3 times a week.
I find mixing the Super Food powder with water, in a smoother, or over my yogurt in the morning is definitely the easiest way to boost your nutrition and vitamin intake.
