BIG NEWS: Why it’s time I said goodbye to the Nourishing Hub

Hello beautiful person, If I’m completely honest, it has probably taken me about two years to write this post. It might sound like a bad case of procrastination but actually, it isn’t. It has just taken me that long to get up the courage to part with my baby – the Nourishing Hub. It is like parting with a little piece of myself, so there is definitely a little grief in this goodbye.  I’m welling up a bit just writing this. Those of you who have built your own business will know how much heart and soul (and good old blood, sweat,...

Natural Sleep Remedies To Help You Fall Asleep And Stay Asleep

Do you find it hard to fall asleep? Do you fall asleep quickly but then wake up in the night and can’t get back to sleep? Did you know that in the developed world 150 million people can’t sleep properly, meaning they suffer from sleep-related problems? Worldwide we are sleeping less than we ever have in history. In 1942 8 hours was the average amount of sleep - today it is just 6.2 hours. As a little side note (because I am a kiwi) - did you know New Zealanders sleep more than any other country coming in at 7.2 hours a night?...

Bone Broth - The Supercharged Version

Hello there,  Today I wanted to share a few words on bone broth. Bone broth has been used for many centuries but only more recently has it been recognised for its gut healing and anti-inflammatory qualities. Bone broth is an excellent source of protein (particularly gelatin) and also creates a bioavailable mineral source for the body. This means when bones are boiled for a certain duration they release minerals such as calcium, magnesium, sulphur etc, that can be more easily absorbed by the body. In addition to minerals, bone both provides healing compounds like collagen, proline, glycine, glutamine and glucosamine, that have significant benefits for the body. Compounds such as...

Why I’m taking Chaga Mushroom as my Immunity Elixir + Chaga Immunity Elixir Recipe

Over the past 6 months, I've been trying out medicinal mushrooms (not to be mistaken for magic mushrooms, although I do believe there is some magic in this ancient medicine). Chaga, also known as black gold, is one of the mushroom remedies I have been testing out. Chaga has a long list of health benefits and is said to be one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. It is often referred to as the king of the superfood mushrooms. Chaga is actually a fungus that grows on birch trees in the Northern Hemisphere, in very cold climates. In the East Chaga...

Fulfilment vs Achievement + Detoxing Green Goddess Dressing

Hello lovely human, A belated Happy New Year from me! I feel like I am hatching into 2018 very slowly this year (gosh, it's already mid February!). Most New Years I crack into the new year with resolutions, vision boards or big words to live by for the year - my inner life coach can't help it.This year I'm allowing things to flow a little more slowly. I'm more concerned with how fulfilled I will feel than by what I want to achieve. We become so attached to the outcome in life that we forget to enjoy the process - life is the process.  Learning the art of fulfilment has been a big teaching for me in recent years...
