Ever felt that the climate problem is too big an issue for you to contribute to? Well, one thing you can do on a daily basis that will add up to a big impact is the food choices you make. Simple swaps, like substituting a beef burger for a veggie burger can add up to big savings for the planet.
What a year! 12 months ago today, I had just arrived and landed in Sydney unsure of what the future held. We'd pushed ourselves out of our comfort zone and headed to Australia for an adventure, and that's certainly what we've had! A year goes very quickly, but a lot happens in 12 months. I've learnt so much by living in a new country (Australia), working in a new industry (food/health/wellness) and learning new business models. It has been awesome...not a walk in the park for sure, but I am super grateful for your support during this big year of transition. Whatever you do in your life, the people around you always make the biggest difference.

Certainly disruptive and painful getting to this point, but as I always say: 'On the other side of diversity is growth' And 2017 has been an amazing growth experience both for myself and for all of my family! The power of goals There's no doubt that a key reason why I am living in Sydney today, doing work that is completely aligned to my purpose and effectively 'living my dream' is because I learnt at a very early age about the power of goals. I remember the day back in 1999, sitting at my desk, unsure of which path to take. I was at the time
Considering that half the children across the world between the ages of 6 months and 5 years have a nutritional deficiency of some sort, it can be difficult to determine where the break in the nutrition chain occurs. When children from that age already struggle with their nutrition, it’s hard to imagine that this will be rectified as they get older. We live in a society today where those in developed countries are considered overfed and undernourished. Access to convenience is partly to blame and the other part is lack of information. To ensure we pack as much nutrition into our bodies as possible, it’s time to separate fact from fiction in the world of food.
