Why I Believe My New 12-Step Book Will Help Revolutionise Your Approach To Health And Wellness

1:00 am PDT, September 23, 2019

I am so humbled to announce the launch of my third book The 12-Step Mind-Body-Food Reset. It’s available to order right now! I can’t even believe it!

I have you to thank, my beautiful community and JSHealth sissies. You have supported me through this incredible journey and I would not be here without you.

I wrote this book while I was living in the USA last year and it’s as real, raw and vulnerable as it gets.

I share stories I have never shared before and sobbed through so much of it— it was such a cathartic process.

But they were mostly happy tears, as I was able to truly reflect on how far I’ve come in …

Real Talk: How Anxiety Has Shifted My Beliefs Around Weight For The Better

3:00 pm PDT, September 18, 2019

Last night I shared something I haven’t had the courage to talk about openly before, until now.

Currently, I am at my lowest weight…and I’m the least happy or excited I have ever been about it.

As you may know, I recently came out of the closet about my struggle with anxiety but I haven’t felt brave enough to talk about the way it’s affected my body weight, image and relationship with food, but in order to stay true to myself and my beautiful JSHealth community I felt it was time to get real with you. With the JSHealth brand built on products and recipes that nourish the body and promote love, kindness and acceptance, it’s heartbreaking …

My Favourite Sydney Cafes

1:00 pm PDT, September 15, 2019

I absolutely love being treated to a delicious meal out with my hubby, besties or my beautiful fam! I love cooking my food more than anything but sometimes it’s nice not to have to worry. It’s still possible to eat and actually enjoy nutritious meals at cafes and restaurants. Here are some of my favourite Sydney Cafes! 

Breakfast

Lox stock and Barrel This place definitely ranks as one of my favourites. You will find me here most weekends. Their approach to food is that it should be healthy, delicious, and as close to farm-to-table as possible. I love ordering eggs with a side of tomatoes, mushrooms and their delicious gluten-free quinoa seed bread. 

Lunch

My locals….

10 Supermarket Snacks You’ll Find In the JSHealth Office

1:00 pm PDT, September 8, 2019

At JSHealth we are all about snacks! Whilst we love to whip up our own home-made snacks, sometimes this just doesn’t happen. Therefore, supermarket snacks can be lifesavers.

Here are 10 supermarket snacks you’ll find in the JSHealth office:

Popcorn Who doesn’t love popcorn? Salty, sweet or in between, it’s all delicious. We love the brand Serious Popcorn but there are lots of other options in the shopping isle.

Yoghurt Yoghurt is a great choice; rich in calcium, live cultures and protein. When purchasing yoghurt look for unsweetened varieties, options with a higher protein content to help keep you full and brands that list live cultures in the ingredients list.

Fruit Guess what pairs well with yoghurt… fruit! Lately we …

5 Nutrients To Help Manage Eczema

1:00 pm PDT, September 1, 2019

Eczema is an itchy, non-contagious, inflammatory skin condition that usually first appears in early life. It can be incredibly frustrating, painful and often difficult to treat. The exact causes require further investigation but are likely to be multifactorial, consisting of a mix of genetic and environmental factors. Inflammation and creating trauma from scratching can cause further impairments to the function of the skin barrier.

To help support those with eczema, we’ve put together a list of 5 nutrients that may be worth incorporating into your daily diet:

JSHealth 2019 Bali Guide

1:00 pm PDT, August 27, 2019

I have just returned from the most magical trip to Bali with our JSHealth team to bond, celebrate the last couple of months and brainstorm the future vision of the brand. The people, the food, the culture and health scene are truly impressive. The Balinese people are some of the kindest people I’ve ever met.

We’ve put together a detailed Bali guide covering all our favourite spots:

Where to stay We stayed at the most beautiful villa, Villa Ipanema (https://www.ipanemavilla.com) in the heart of Canggu and a 1-minute walk from the beach. We really could not fault one thing. Best staff, bedrooms, sitting area and pool. Highly recommend! We had yoga at the villa each morning, in-house …

The AM Routine I Swear By To Keep My Stress Levels Down

1:00 pm PDT, August 25, 2019

My morning routine truly is so important to me and is something I have always encouraged my clients to implement.

How you start your morning sets the tone for the day. It truly has a ripple effect on your health habits for the rest of the day and in my experience, helps reduce stress levels and anxious thoughts. Everyone’s morning routine will look different and that’s ok! It’s all about doing what works for you personally. I try to set aside 30 minutes where possible but some days I can only squeeze in 10 but trust me, it all makes a difference.

To provide you with a little bit of inspiration for what a stress-reducing morning looks like today I’m …

My 14 Fave Beauty Hacks And Tips

1:00 pm PDT, August 18, 2019

I’ve never thought of myself as a beauty expert. In fact, I’m pretty low-key with my make-up and beauty routine. Give me a good moisturiser, a nice bronzer, a lick of mascara and some coconut lip balm and I’m set. When it comes to beauty, I prefer to focus on the inner, rather than the outer. That means eating a nourishing whole foods diet, supplementing, drinking plenty of water and eating plenty of greens.

If you’d like to know more, here are 14 of my fave beauty and skin hacks.
