Tell us about your journey, what sparked your passion for the health and wellness industry?
I’ve always been interested in health and wellness, but it was during a 4 month backpacking stint through Europe where I realised how much good health had an impact on my life. After months of drinking and eating a poor diet, I felt awful. So took myself off to a health retreat in the UK and cleansed from the inside out. It changed me forever and I since have shown the utmost respect for my body and my health and have developed a passion on educating others to do so too. Being an Osteopath sparked a greater interest in inflammation and nutrition and so I did further study so I could be more holistic in practice and become a health coach outside of the clinic.

Tell us something not many people know about you?
I love being home. As much as I am obsessed with nature and being in the ocean and outdoors, I’m a home body. If I could potter around the house, make delicious food in the kitchen, and read an inspiring book, I’m pretty content!

1/2 cup melted coconut oil
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2.5 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons almond butter
Whisk the cacao and salt through the melted coconut oil and maple syrup so there are no clumps. Pour 1 tablespoon of choc mixture into cupcake patty pans or muffin moulds (makes 6). Place in freezer for 5 minutes until firm. Spoon a layer of almond butter onto each choc base and put back into the freezer for 10 minutes. Take out of freezer and top each cup with 1 tablespoon choc mixture and leave to set in freezer for at least 30 minutes. Once hard, take out of freezer, take out of patties and serve immediately. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
