Tell us about your journey, what sparked your passion for the health and wellness industry?
I was diagnosed with cervical cancer aged 24, which was the catalyst to studying nutrition, becoming a health coach and starting my own wellness revolution at home. As a result, I began blogging and more and more people kept visiting and asking me what I was eating, drinking, doing etc and it’s grown into what it is today!
What’s your number one wellness tip?
Get your juice on and become a juice junkie!
What’s your one non-negotiable when it comes to your health?
Everything has to be in its most natural state as possible from food to drinks to skincare – basically everything!
What motto do you live by?
It’s not really a motto but more of a way of lifestyle: Take one day at a time, approach everything with love and live as consciously as possible.
What is your proudest achievement?
Last year was really touch and go for me so from being on my deathbed and shuffling around the house at a snail’s pace, I built myself up enough to carry the Olympic Torch and be one of just 8000 torchbearers. I couldn’t run, but I sure did walk well (much to my own surprise!) 😉
What are your goals for the future?
To launch my next book and awesome project (which I can’t tell you about just yet – sorry!) Stay tuned!
I’m also working on a tv show concept and launching my raw food brand The Noble Kitchen into more wellbeing and health food shops nationwide.
Tell us something not many people know about you?
I am really impatient which I am constantly working on…
Can you share with us one of your favourite recipes?
2 1/2 cups walnuts
1 cup medjool dates, pitted and cut in half
3/4 cup cacao powder
pinch Celtic sea salt or Pink Himalyan Salt
1/2 cup coconut butter/oil (melted)
1/2 cup cacao powder
1 tsp organic alcohol-free vanilla extract
3 tablespoons maple syrup
Process the nuts in a food processor until they are ground down as finely as possible. Add the cacao powder and salt and whizz again. With the machine turning, drop the dates in through the top of the chute one at a time. (This ensures they are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.) If your dates are a little hard, soak them in hot water for 20 minutes before adding to the mixture.
Transfer the mixture into a cake base lined with cling film or plastic wrap, (this will help with the removal of the finished product.) Press the mixture down so it is firm and even on top. Set aside.
Depending on where you live and where your coconut butter/oil is stored it may be in liquid form or may well be a creamy buttery texture. This is because it has a very low melting point. If it is like butter, put half a cup of it in a bowl sat in another larger bowl of hot water to allow it to melt. (This is called double-boiling.) If you have a dehydrator, you could also pop it in there instead.
When the mixture is completely melted, combine it in a food processor with the remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour the icing over the brownie base and place in the fridge for an hour to set.
After this time, it should be ready to cut into pieces and devour! Enjoy!
