‘I don’t know what to eat. I don’t know what to put on my skin. What health foods/products do you really recommend?’

I’ve been asked this question a lot lately.

Over the past few years, I’ve slowly morphed into the girl that sources out the local health food store when travelling before even thinking about an open roof bus tour. Gone are the days where I’d spend all my pay at the pub, on two minute noodles, on cheap and crappy makeup or new clothes.

Today, if you took a look at my bank statement, my cashola goes on organic food and skin care, superfoods, reiki healings, yoga classes, online courses and new books.

Stocking my pantry, cosmetic bag and bathroom cabinet with high quality, organic and BENEFICIAL ingredients is really important to me.

However, it’s important to note that this wasn’t always the case, this isn’t always easy and there’s been a lot of trial and error as I have made this transition. And I’m very much still making the transition in a lot of areas.

There are some seriously dodgy products stocking the shelves of our supermarkets AND health food stores claiming to be safe and good for us. I’ve experimented with a zillion different types of health foods, skin care, cosmetics, makeup, products and programs in my time; some great and some not so much.

So to help you navigate through the supermarket aisles and the somewhat intimidating health food store, I’d love to start sharing with you the products that I’m currently digging.
