Good health really is a magical thing. When our bodies are well nourished, rising in the morning is easy, our energy levels throughout the day are delightfully balanced, we feel hydrated and we rest peacefully by night. As a nutritionist, my role is to guide people in this journey to good health. Provide easy, practical, nourishing solutions to inspire and help people feel empowered by their health.
So, I am incredibly excited to have teamed up with the wonderful team at JURLIQUE to do just that for you! Our partnership in beauty, health and wellness will see gorgeous delicious, nourishing and simple ideas coming right your way. We’ve created some absolutely incredible recipes, videos, and easy reads to help give your health a makeover and for you to see your skin glow like never before.
JURLIQUE have such a beautiful array of natural, nourishing ingredients in their range of products, so we thought the most wonderful way to showcase these would be not only through their stunning product, but also with how you can eat them. If you can enhance the glow in your skin through food as well as within your beauty regime then really… why wouldn’t you?
A little on my philosophy in nutrition…I work first and foremost on diet, because diet is not just what you eat it is truly a ‘way of life’. When our diet is in good stead, everything flows well, when our diet is out of kilt, our body doesn’t respond as well as it could and it can impact both our health and our lifestyle. Nourishing whole foods are the answer.
By whole foods, I mean those that are as close as possible to how Mother Nature created them, unprocessed, unrefined, without the additives, sugars or preservatives we see all too often in food these days. Think fresh vegetables a plenty, fruit, whole grains, nuts, seeds, clean quality proteins and healthy fats. It’s as simple as that. When you learn about how wonderful these foods are and pop your creative hat on in the kitchen again, you feel and see the benefits.
Recreating your health is best approached with small steps, on a frequent basis to achieve long term results. Don’t try to change everything overnight, Rome wasn’t built in a day, new habits and breaking old ones takes time too. When you use this principle and look at whole foods as a fun, creative and simple way to do it, then you are half way there. I hope you enjoy what JURLIQUE and I have prepared for you…I know we’ve had an absolute blast creating it.
In good health always,
