Sometimes people ask how I do it all – how I work full-time, study (to be a Certified Practising Planner – I’m halfway through), write 3 blog posts each week, write my new ebook ‘Transform Your Life in 8 Weeks’ (I’m finalising the design now!), spend weekends relaxing and show my face on social media. I do all these things every week with happiness, health and energy. But I do have a few tricks up my sleeve. And I’m going to share them with you today. My secret ingredients to the best life ever… herbal tea, superfoods, ground organics, tarian pantry and meditation.
Pukka Herbal Tea
Pukka Herbal Tea is my saviour. It’s my daily stress relief. My nightly ritual. Not only do I love Pukka Tea but I have 3 boxes of Pukka Herbal Tea to give away. In my hot little hands I have the ayurvedic range of Relax, Refresh and Revitalise. Relax is a sweet mellow blend of chamomile, fennel and marshmallow root to help you feel perfectly relaxed. Revitalise is a spicy warming blend of cinnamon, cardamom and ginger to help get you going. Refresh is a delicious cooling blend of peppermint, licorice and rose to help you feel uplifted. Pukka Teas are 100% organic and ethically sourced. To enter all you have to do is head to my facebook or instagram page, repost/share the Pukka Tea pic, tag me and hashtag #consciousfoodie EASY!! You can enter once per day and the winner will be drawn November 13th. Best of luck foodies!
Power Super Foods
I pack my diet full of Power Super Foods. When you nourish your body with the best possible food you have so much more energy and need less sleep. Power Super Foods are an Aussie company that sell organic superfoods. They specialise in vegan, raw, Low GI, fairly traded, gluten-and-dairy-free functional foods. Power Super Foods have a huge variety that includes acai, cacao, maca, sea vegetables, chia, goji and maqui berries, coconut-derived foods and supersalts. At the moment they offer free shipping on orders over $50 and 10% off orders over $100. Check out my Choc Mousse recipe that uses their delicious raw cacao powder.
If you’re a follower of my instagram and facebook page you’ll know that I have a love affair with Ground Organics. Ground Organics is my go-to café/wellness store when there’s no food in the house or I’m too busy to cook. Ground Organics is run by James and Monique who have a Cafe in Buderim and a Wellness Store in Mooloolaba. They serve a nourishing menu of 100% organic, living foods that are plant-based, gluten and dairy-free. Check out my interview with Monique here. PS She shares her Choc Peppermint Ice Cream recipe.
Tarian Pantry is a shiny online space that offers beautiful healthy hampers and health and lifestyle coaching with the lovely Amanda Meggison who is the founder of Tarian Pantry. Amanda has a wealth of information and inspires me daily. She is a plant lover who is passionate about sustainable, local and organic produce. She’s not just a pretty face either. Amanda has been working in the organic food industry for the past 8 years and has a certificate in nutrition and diet and a certificate in sports nutrition. Amanda created Tarian Pantry to help others achieve optimum health and wellbeing through diet and exercise. You can learn more about Amanda and Tarian Pantry here.
The Space In Between
If you’re a reader of my blog you’ll know I recommend meditation time and time again. I’ve always known about the power of meditation. I’ve written about it here. However, I found it extremely difficult to actually do UNTIL I found a magical CD called The Space in Between Sessions: Activate Your Inner Buddha by the lovely Sara Brooke from The Space In Between. Sara is an amazing Meditation Teacher, Reiki Master Teacher and Theta Healer Practioner. Her album includes three guided meditations to help assist newbies and intermediate mediators access their “Buddha” self on a regular basis. Read more about Sara here.
