Love and big self-love,
1. Describe yourself in three words.
Driven, loving, open.
2. What was the inspiration behind your website ‘Path to Wellness’?
Path to Wellness was a result of me wanting to share and pour out all my health, wellness and lifestyle knowledge to help you live your best life.
3. I know that you are passionate about fuelling your body with the right foods to create lasting energy and promote the body’s natural healing process. What would you say to someone wanting to start on the healthy eating path and what 3 foods would you use to persuade them?
I would say listen to your body, this I so important. There is so much information out there that we think ‘oh, I have to be vegan’, or ‘maybe paleo is right for me’. Just listen to you body, it knows best.
I would make them my superfood green warrior salad, and my 15 hour slow cooked lamb, with my raw chocolate cherry brownies for dessert.
4. You’re also a beautiful ambassador of self-love. Why is it important for us and what can we do to bring a little self-love into our everyday lives?
I believe self-love is at the core at everything we do. It’s the deep root of all of our decisions and how we see the world.
I talk about self-love loads in my eBook 12 Steps to Wellness (which you can get here) and I also give you ways to work your self-love muscle here

6. What do you do or say to yourself if you’re having an ‘off’ day?
Usually when I am having an ‘off’ moment, I am in my head and not in the present moment so I gently remind myself to come back into the here and now.
