The world is simply abounding with amazing, wonderful women that are doing so much good! So from now on every Wednesday** I will be interviewing an amazing woman that is sending some serious good juju into our world… because goddamn they should be celebrated!
For anyone who has read this blog for a while you would be aware that there is one woman in particular who inspires my life…
Jessica Ainscough. The Wellness Warrior. Blogger. Health Coach Extraordinaire. Public Speaker. Author. #girlcrush.
She is a bonafide superstar in the health and wellness world and is doing a damn fine job at spreading the message that our bodies can heal themselves. Jess kicked cancers ass via natural therapies, positive psychology and basically just simplifying her life (less stress, getting back to nature).
She also changes my life on a daily basis through her Lifestyle Transformation Guide. I am part of her tribe and while I continue to work through her program I am constantly bolstered by encouraging emails from her, answers to my silly questions and an awesome community to boot. She gave me to tools to get myself healthy. She inspired me to take the step that found me on this path… going in a direction I am finally happy with.
Basically I am unbelievably honoured to have Jessica Ainscough as my inaugural Wellness Women We Love.
Bucket list item… tick.
Thank you for walking onto this virtual stage! Now if you were walking on-stage in real life what tune would you have playing as your theme song?
What motivated you to take the first step on your wellness journey?
What do you do every morning to set up your day for success?
There are so many nutritional untruths floating around out there. What is your favourite myth to debunk?
How do you handle your dietary non-negotiables when you are invited over/out for dinner?
Unless I’m going somewhere that will serve me organic food, I take my own. I pack an esky full of yummy home-made food so that I don’t feel deprived while I watch others eat. I even went to a Thai restaurant recently and took my own coconut curry. I just always call ahead first to make sure it’s okay.
If you had to cook one meal to impress a tough crowd of unhealthy eaters, what would it be?
I would probably make healthy Mexican – spiced beans, guacamole, cashew sour cream, homemade chilli sauce, lots of fresh salads and potatoes cooked in coconut oil and spices. Then for dessert, it would either be raw chocolate brownies or a raw avocado-lime cheesecake.
Do you have any natural products/alternative therapies that you cannot live without?
How do you ‘zen-ify’ your home?
What is your favourite imperfection about yourself and why?
What is one question that everyone should ask themselves?
Am I experiencing joy on a regular basis?
