Tell us about your journey, what sparked your passion for the health and wellness industry?

I have always been interested in good health, but it’s taken various forms over the years! It wasn’t until I contracted an auto-immune disease 6 years ago, that I really started looking at real food, chemical free living and how our emotions impact our bodies.

What’s your number one wellness tip?

My number one wellness tip will always be to listen to your body. Everything you need to know for happiness and good health resides within. Get really quiet and listen. How does food make you feel? What makes you happy? Listen hard and respect your body.

What’s your one non-negotiable when it comes to your health?

I refuse to eat fake food from multinational corporations. Ever.

What motto do you live by?

Live your authentic life. Everything just clicks into place when you follow your soul purpose.

What is your proudest achievement?

My family! I have been married to my natural, new age man for 14 years and I have two amazing children. Apart from them, I am so proud of my website, Natural New Age Mum, it has become my soul purpose.

What are your goals for the future?

So many things! I am taking Natural New Age Mum into bigger and better things. I am releasing a series of e-books and hope to get mainstream Australia living a healthy life!

Tell us something not many people know about you?

Not many people know that  I am completely tone-deaf, musically inept and have a voice something akin to possums mating. It is my greatest fear to sing in public and the mere thought of karaoke makes me break out in a cold sweat!

Can you share with us one of your favourite recipes?

Fig, Cinnamon and Pecan Biccies

Pecan Biscuits

Okay so this is what you need:

1 1/2 cups organic almond meal

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

1 tablespoon organic cinnamon

2 tablespoons organic Australian olive oil

4 tablespoons organic apple juice concentrate

1/4 cup finely chopped organic dried figs

1/4 cup finely chopped pecans

Okay, so this is how you do it:

Fling the almond meal, bicarb, cinnamon, pecans and figs into a bowl. Mix it up well. Fling into another bowl the oil and apple juice concentrate and mix well. Mix the stuff from the two bowls together. Roll into small balls and chuck onto a baking paper lined tray. Press them down a little. Leave a good gap, because they spread out. Whack into the oven – 160 degrees celsius for about 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Makes about 12.

Thermomix Instructions:

Make your almond meal by milling on speed 9 for about 10 seconds. Add dry ingredients and mix well on reverse, speed 4 for 10 seconds. Add wet ingredients and mix again on reverse, speed 4 for 10 seconds.

Note: Mix it up and use cacao, coconut and goji berries instead of the fig and pecan!
