Seasonal Eating

My Dad still harvest his  his amazing abundant vegetable garden today in his late 70’s despite his physical obstacles. It’s something he doesn’t give up on, and finds a way to continue to sow and reap. 

Earlier this year my Dad finally had his hip replacement. All through last spring he had to plant, fig and prepare the garden for summer, by lying down on his stomach to get the job done. 

I truly believe his connection to the earth and nature is what is helping his health be the best it can be. 

I beer took much notice of the Garden as a child as kids we were more focused on kicking the ball around the back yard, playing cricket,  playing chase around the garden. as I have golf older and especially over the time of publishing my threee health and nutrition books I have picked my Dad’s brain about gardening. 
Yep old fashion gardening works. 

My dad’s garden is ORGANIC He doesn’t use sprays, he has a system with composting and recycling. 

I didn’t alwaysike winter but as I have learnt is every SEASON has it’s purpose. 

Thanks Dad, for raising us up around the most natural environment possible. 


🌿Imagine a vegetable garden in the dead of winter. Then imagine the same garden on a sunny, 
summer day. How different the garden is during these two seasons of the year! Yet, today it is so easy 
for us to forget about the seasons when we eat. 
Originally, people had no choice but to eat foods only when they were in season. 
But now, modern food propagation methods and a fast and economical worldwide distribution of food make the same 
foods available all year round. You can buy many types of food from a supermarket irrespective of 
seasonal availability, and grocery store shelves look much the same in December as they do in July. 

However, life always comes full circle and now, once again, we are moving back to the old fashion approach of following the seasons. Seasonal foods are a way of reconnecting with the cycle that nature intended for us. Raw foods, the healthiest wholesome foods provided by nature, are seasonal. 
And when food is in season, it has more flavour and is more economical to buy. 

🍃Freshness

The nutritional level of fresh, seasonal food is very high. The longer that it is stored the more the 
nutritional value depletes. So, it’s a good idea to eat freshly picked fruit, or freshly harvested produce. 
Try supporting your local farmers’ market or your local fresh fruit and vegetable store, because 
generally they will stock what is in season.

Embracing Your Beauty from within can be a journey.

Embrace your beauty from within can be a journey but it can be done. 



As I am now in my 46th year I am trying to embrace  natural beauty from within and inspire other women to do the same by learning all about your SKIN ~ your largest organ is a GUIDE to let you know what your internal health is. 

I am from the fashion industry and don't get me wrong, I love good hair, make up and fashion. I think its fun, creative and can make you feel feminine and womanly. My objective here is inner health and to inspire you to think about your skin as your largest organ learning how it can be your guide to how healthy you are from within. I know when my skin isn't glowing or breaking out I need to make some changes. 


Here is my experiment embracing my natural beauty. 



1. Allowing my natural hair colour to come in, no hair colour. My former background is owning Hair and Beauty Salons so I have been use to colouring my own hair for many years now. This is something I have always wanted to do, its not to say I won't ever colour my hair again... NO!


2. Allowing my eyebrows to grow in naturally so I can see their natural shape. Years ago this was fashion, these days eyebrows look so false and painted on, Men don’t actually like it!

3. Increasing water for hydration, I can see and feel the difference.

4. Focused on sleep and meditation for restoring my body and digestive system. 

5. Natural nails and toes, letting my nails breathe, loving this one.


6. Meditation can help with less frowning and anger shown on our beautiful face.  I am working with Men and women everyday and it is something I remind my clients to relax their facial muscles and try to smile within. Letting go of all those annoyances that can over time show lines and frowns on our face. Finding JOY within helps us stay young and vibrant! 




Embracing inner beauty as a mum and Fitness Coach I feel this is so important as today’s rapidly changing world is becoming more and more materialistic and fake. 

I have two beautiful girls and I want to be the best role model I can be for living a natural, balanced and healthy lifestyle. Don't get me wrong, I love a filter and being creative on social media, snap chat and Instagram but if I can also balance that out by being brave enough to show my natural beauty I hope one day my own girls will learn from it and continue to embrace theirs. 



Embracing natural beauty is empowering, what every the colour of your skin, the size of you, tall or short, dark hair or light.   

It is  healthy as you aren’t relying on chemicals, make up or materials to MAKE you feel beautiful. I believe Real BEAUTY begins from within. As a young kid we have glowing young skin, when we age we have to step up to our health so you can continue to radiate your natural beauty. 


As a Fitness Coach you have to exercise to purge toxins, eat healthy, drink plenty of clean water and rest and restore. 
I use rose hip oil, coconut oil, Essential oils, sleep, Meditation and healthy nutrition to help my skin flow. 

Follow me for more inspiration how to be healthy and glow from within. 

PS by the way I have a new online Fitness Program releasing soon. If you are a member of the gym and sick of not getting the results or support you are after for Body Transformation I have just the right tools for success and group support with daily updates to help you go through your new routine.

Are your Chakra's working properly





Change your energy’s change your life. 




You know when things aren't working in your life. But have you been open enough to work on your Bodies Energy System? Chakra Balancing has been around for thousands of years, it is simple and works. I am going to share with you the one single thing that can help you figure out how to transform that area in a flash. 

Like everything in life, if you want something to grow, flourish and radiate to become the best and reach full potential you have to look after it and take care of it, just like your body, your temple.

Open your Bodies Chakra System and make sure it is working properly. 




You don’t need to drag up the past, know what baggage you are carrying around or where it came from to understand what is wrong with a certain area of your life that may not be working for you. 

All you need to know is if an area of your life is not working, one or more of your chakras are is possibly blocked or not working properly. 

Your job is not to know why and be worried, it is to make sure it is working properly. 

Here is the single on thing that helps you to change that area of your life. 


Are you feeling stuck and stagnant in this area of your life?
Do you want that something be it Abundance, Love, Success or Inner Health  to grow, flourish and radiate? How would it feel  to become the best and reach full potential you have to look after it and take care of it, just like your body, your temple. 

The number one way to start is "Meditation" and feeling connected with your energy field. 

Change your energy’s change your life. 

Meditating isn't always easy for beginners. I remember it well when I first started, I was so distracted in my mind and fidgety in my body. My Yoga Guru always said a fidgety body and fidgety mind. What he meant by that was the mind flitting from thought to though and not creating the present moment and right vibration in my mind and body to help me reap the results I was after. Now I have trained my mind to meditate I can go into deep states of deep meditation quickly to re adjust my mindset and chakra bodies energy system when stuff comes up or when I feel I am not reaping the results in areas of my life. I will teach you that through your practice, patience is just as important when you first start sowing the new seeds of abundance, love and success. It is a journey and can take time for you to align your energy and define your goals. 




You can channel or manifest anything really into your life when you learn this technique. I am sure you have heard of the book 'The Secret"  or read it, millions of people have read this book but are they all living the dream? 
It can take some time to integrate this technique into your body and life. I can tell you I have been on this path a long time and I am still learning and integrating it into my daily life. I know when my chakra's are open and I am receiving all the love abundance, good health and success and when I am not. 
You can change it in a flash. But first we must get quiet, sit in solitude and learn to relax your mind and body. 

My Special and Unique Meditation Practice filmed around Ubud Rainforest will help you manifest abundance and still your mind. 

Embrace it now for a downloadable video to play on your phone, in the park at home, meditate to, fall asleep to. Click in the link below to get your own Video link now. 


You can access the meditation here. Click on the link and receive the 30 min meditation now to play on your phone or laptop.

Are you a busy person and only an  audio only person then I have just the thing for you. 

You can download my 35 min for $5.95 or the  15min quick-fix meditation $2.95  for success, love and abundance here now. 

I take pride in these videos and audios and have used them for my own meditation practices for over the past 6 years. 

Now it's your turn. 

Vibrate the health energy, abundance, self love and success from within. 


The law of attraction is all about like attraction like, and when you begin to vibrating a higher level you will attract a higher level energy. In turn this will help you create increased abundance, love and success. It is particular good if you are single and wanting to attract the right energy of man or woman into your life so you can both be aligned. I believe self love here is number one important factor.

Learn to relax, still your active mind and meditate along to my voice helping to guide you down into that meditative state. 

This can also be highly beneficial for stress management. 

Namaste 

Nicky xx

Quinoa and Kale Crisp Bread





Raw Food Benefits



I believe that taking care of yourself is the best insurance that you can have for a vibrant life full of joy and happiness, and that eating a good diet, rich in vitamins and minerals, will help to promote good health.
For me, a Raw food lifestyle begins with reassessing the basic foods provided for us by nature. In order to do that, I believe that it is essential to strip out of our diets all foods that are processed or packaged, loaded with artificial flavour enhancers and sweeteners and which are devoid of nutritional value.


Nature provides us with a whole array of healthy foods, which, when incorporated into our diet, provides us with vitality, good health and energy. These foods can offer a perfect nutritional package. When eaten Raw, we benefit from the maximum nutritional value that each of these foods offers.


I believe that ‘living’ foods – meaning those that grow in the ground – are our life force. By integrating living foods into our diets, we can look forward to wellness, greater energy, mental clarity, a positive outlook on life and spiritual awakening.

When you eat Raw food, you’ll notice that you don’t need to eat so much, or need to eat the heavier foods that you previously desired. Lighter food makes us feel lighter and more energized. You’ll never feel as if you are on a diet when eating this way. 

Check out a healthy and raw recipe from my book The Power of Living Raw.



Quinoa and Kale Crisp Bread

This recipe offers more protein with a nutty taste and grainy texture. A great bread to use as an open sandwich filled with fresh salad and herbs.

Serves 6–8
1 cup kale 1⁄2 cup fresh basil
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon olive oil

1⁄2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt or Celtic sea salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1⁄2 cup sunflower seeds
2 cups  LSA meal (mixed ground linseeds, sunflower seeds and almonds) 

1/3 cup warm water
1 cup  cooked quinoa (I use the dark seed) 

Sliced avocado, mixed salad, hummus or jam, to serve


Process the kale, basil, cumin, oil, salt and oregano in the bowl of a food processor then tip into a large bowl.

Process the sunflower seeds just until they form fine crumbs, then add to the bowl with the kale mixture. Stir through the LSA and then add the water a little at a time, and mix between each addition until a dough forms. Stir in the quinoa.

Turn out onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper and press the mixture out to the edges. 

Place a sheet of baking paper on top, then roll over with a rolling pin until flat and 1⁄4 in (0.5 cm) thick. Remove the top paper and transfer to the tray of a dehydrator or bake in the oven  on a low temp 75 degree

Dehydrate for 2–3 hours, or bake in the oven at 100°C/210°F for 30 minutes. 

Be careful not overbake. If you don’t have a dehydrator, bake for 10–15 minutes and then turn off the oven and leave for 30 minutes with the oven door shut. Cut with a pizza cutter into squares

Top with avocado, salad, hummus or a jam. 



Quinoa

Pronounced ‘keen-wah’, this superfood is gluten free, nutritious and high in protein. It adds body
and texture to any Raw food recipe, and has a lovely nutty flavour. Quinoa grains are the grain-like sprouts of a plant similar to Swiss chard and spinach. Rinse the quinoa seeds thoroughly before using them. 





My purpose in writing my  book  and sharing recipes is to help you transform to a lifestyle that provides you with a healthy life, a pain-free body, contentment and longevity. On my Raw food journey, I have learned new ways of creating healthy food that serves my body well and keeps me healthy. Life comes with choices, and you can choose Raw food healthy eating to become part of your life.

Be mindful of the foods that you put into your body. Make peace with your body and nurture it with the food it needs. Treat your body like a TEMPLE, respect it daily with nourishing foods, exercise and rest and relaxation/meditation. 

Namaste

Become STRONGER within!

Love ❤️ Your Sunday! 💫





A day to restore your beautiful temple. 



BEAUTY is not about the "OUTER" & in The study of Yoga the outer~ referred to Your "Physical " ( tangible) BODY I like to call your TEMPLE, is the house, the shell of your Body, it carries you through LIFE! 



BUT listen up, the "INNER" is where the real MAGIC lies, your inner vibration, mind or voice can create a beautiful INNER BEAUTY 💫 that can only RADIATE OUT as total beauty. 




It's then you start to SHINE, people notice something quite different about you, your eyes, your energy, YOUR BEAUTIFUL SOUL.


Growing up is a journey and for my young fans & teenagers it can take a life time to totally love and accept yourself  without judgement! But if you are prepared to just say those 5 magic words DAILY .... your BEAUTY ❤️will radiate stronger. 


You will have this INNER POWER of what is called SELF LOVE!


5 MAGIC WORDS ~ I have learnt to love by. 


"I LOVE AND ACCEPT MYSELF!" ❤️ 


When you love yourself it's so much easier to love others unconditionally.


Be aware though as challenges or upheavals or boyfriend break ups happen it's easy to fall back into old thought patterns and blame yourself, shame guilt or self hate.


Oh and MUM's or my female fans & members in my age bracket take note too... Love is the healer! ❤️ 



Re align today with my 5 MAGICAL WORDS ❤️



 " I LOVE & ACCEPT MYSELF!" 


Radiate INNER LOVE & BEAUTY!


Become your STRONGEST SELF! 💪🏻 .



Plus 5 things you can do  to help you embody this into your SOUL.



1. Practice YIN YOGA. Unleash your feminine energy through the gentle and restorative practice of Yin. This will help open you heart, and learn to love and accept yourself, unconditionally. 







2. Mediate. If you struggle with a busy mind or feel overwhelmed, try guided mediation to help you relax and become aware of your mindset. Melt fear and self-criticism away by becoming still. Practice solitude daily. 






3. Affirmations. The power of your mind, is more phenomenal than you realise. Change old thought patterns by practising daily affirmations, of self love & acceptance. 






4. Nutrition. Your body is your temple, feed it nourishing and healthy foods daily, this is an act of self love. You are worth it, place high value on your temple by feeding it well. 







5. Sleep. Work on getting early nights so you can fully restore your mind and body. When we learn to love ourselves fully, we learn to value our whole personal care. To radiate beauty, sleep is vital along with exercise and hydration.

Healthy Tips for Eating Out

EATING OUT this weekend? 





I have eaten  out at a lot of beautiful and amazing restaurants, however it is important you only do this once or twice while trying to change your lifestyle and health, and defiantly not all the time. 






There are things you must know to make eating out easy and not allow it to effect your results while on the program.


Here are my tips I do to staying on track.


✔️I order an entree rather than a main


✔️Order 2 small entrees for your meal. It could be a side of greens and a salad


✔️Choose gluten free, dairy free - especially when going to a wedding/event make sure you put your request in.


✔️Let the waiter know you are on a special gluten free plan and not allowed and dairy or gluten, this will keep you safe while eating out. 


✔️Ask for ALL  sauces on the side. That way you have control of what it is and how much you use.


✔️Opt for greens greens greens! The more green you eat while out the better.


✔️Order side Salads 


🤔Now dessert is tricky because not many offer the Raw desserts, so my tip is to order a camomile (or peppermint) tea with a side of honey. 


  • The herbal tea keeps you calm and released whole around friends eating their mud cakes, and cream. 
  • Choose the healthiest restaurant or cafe possible, if drinking try to add water in between or ask for hot water and lemon.
Lastly it is important to remember when eating out with fiends and family to relax and enjoy while being in control of the choices you make, if you happen to be challenged with less choice, then relax and enjoy and get RIGHT BACK ON TRACK THE NEXT MEAL OR NEXT DAY, I usually would do a greens juice and turmeric juice day the very next day with apple cider shots and turmeric tea. 

Have a great weekend!
