Do you have a philosophy around food?
"Food is central to my existence. What I eat has ramifications; My food choices effect my positive outlook on life, how much energy I feel and how fresh I look.
Who I purchase food from, who I support financially by purchasing their food, means everything to me. The way I see it is if we truly want to live in a society where we live harmoniously with the natural world, I believe it starts from our food production.
I support small farms, rotational farms and organic farms. I eat a high protein diet; All sorts of well-reared meats and plant-based proteins. I love ‘eating the rainbow’, lots of coloured vegetables and a small amount of fruit.
Although I choose to be selective with what I eat, I eat delicious bolognaise pasta on weekends and love a good pizza and an aperol spritz with friends."
Do you enjoy cooking? What are your favourite recipes to cook?
"I love preparing meals, I’m fast and furious in the kitchen; Instant nourishment. I’ll make hummus each week, usually our evening meals are protein and veggies."
What are the non-negotiables in your grocery shop each week?
"Good salt and olive oil, loads of different vegetables and protein (meat, chicken, tofu etc)."
Where do you usually shop for groceries?
"I shop once a week at Carriageworks farmer’s market in Eveleigh, and Taste Organic supermarket, Enmore. Sometimes I’ll pick up things from roadside stalls when outside the city."
How often do you do a grocery shop?
"I do one big shop each week. Sometimes I’ll pick up bits and pieces through the week."
Are there any foods or snacks that you’ve been loving lately? How do you prepare them?
"I make hummus and eat it with either raw or baked carrot sticks. I always have fresh miso paste on hand for a cup-a-soup."
What’s the one food you never, ever eat?
"I loathe McDonalds and everything about it."
What is your favourite Beauty Chef product(s) and why? How long have you been taking it for?
"CLEANSE Inner Beauty Support. I take it every so often just to keep things flowing so to speak."
What does your inner beauty routine look like? I.e. food and supplements for your skin and overall health?
"I take a greens supplement most mornings however I’m not super strict with supplements, sometimes I miss days, it’s not a big deal to me because I believe that our bodies know when to take supplements. Liquid Vita C is always on hand, I use a liquid magnesium in my drinking water bottle along with a pinch of Celtic sea salt, a squirt of hemp oil at night and liver tea."
What’s your favourite way to enjoy your Beauty Chef products?
"With my green charge in the morning when I’m just about to run out the door, works for me."
