Healthy Monday guys!
No recipe today (yeah I know I’m on holidays and being sooooo lazy!) but an interview of one of my blog mate!
The blogosphere is full of talented and nice people. Yeah! Bloggers are nice people! I met Krissy through a group of bloggers (almost all of them are from Australia! Guess how it sounds exotic for me?)
We started to share our views on healthy food and healthy life style. Even if I don’t get in France all her magical powders and products, we follow the same basic healthy ideas.
Krissy is a gorgeous lady, she has a lot of tips about a lot of things. Her blog is so pretty. I love it! Go and have a visit you will love her videos. This one is my favorite and Krissy is the queen of zoats!
Can you introduce yourself in a few words?
Can you explain how you became interested in healthy food?
I think it has been a gradual process, one that is still constantly developing and changing (and lead me to start studying nutrition and health). I have had a few health issues that triggered research, and with research comes knowledge. I struggled to fall pregnant naturally so I bought a book dedicated to ‘natural’ health that I thought could help. What did I have to lose? While I also used conventional practices to help me fall pregnant, I learnt so much about chemical exposure, health and wellness, and I felt empowered to take control of my own health. When I had my son my whole World changed and healthy living became a priority and a way of life. I believe that everyone is doing the best they can based on what they know, so my goal is not to tell people what to do, but to inspire health through pretty wee things they can do to improve their health and wellbeing.
Being a mother, do you find it difficult to give your child healthy food (vs easy junk food that they can see in the supermarket) ?
I think this is the great thing about knowledge around healthy food. If you start healthy it really isn’t any more stressful or difficult than the average toddler-food battle. Yes, it takes a bit of thought and preparation at times, but my son will eat his broccoli and drink his green smoothies because he doesn’t know any different.
How do you define healthy living/wellbeing for yourself?
A tricky question! Healthy living has 101 different meanings! For me, it is about mindful living. Knowing what you are putting in and on your body, whether that be the good stuff or the not-so-good stuff. I used to deprive myself, and I was so unhealthy for it. Not at all the picture of health!
So healthy living for me is about mindfulness, knowing what you are using, eating and doing, and making conscious choices for health. I naturally make healthy decisions 80 percent of the time, with room for indulgences. I still LOVE sweets and dessert, so for me it is about knowing that, and not feeling bad about indulging in those foods. I also love makeup, so I apply the same 80/20 balance to all areas of my life.
