Feed Your Mind Festival 2015

I’m so excited to tell you about a new event that’s happening in Brisbane next weekend on Saturday 13 June 2015. It’s called Feed Your Mind and it’s being organised by my lovely friend, Angela, who is passionate about sharing the message of Healthy Body = Healthy Mind. I was stoked when Angela asked me to help her put this event together. It is right up my alley! Check out our Feed Your Mind Community Facebook page and this article in Weekend Notes about the event here.

I didn’t always feel great. In September 2012 I gave up gluten, dairy and sugar and I started eating predominantly organic foods. In the months that followed I started to realise just how terrible I used to feel. Migraines, headaches, bloating, weight gain, brain fog, abdominal pain, gas, lethargy and loss of vitality were symptoms that were with me every day. They had become a normal part of life for me. I desperately wanted to escape them, but I didn’t really believe that I could. I was suffering. I was sad and I was resigned that my life would always be that way.

Then I started making different choices for myself and for my life. I became responsible for my own health and wellbeing. I totally changed the way I ate and I started having a different relationship with food. I began to nourish my body with food.  This change was really easy for me because I started noticing improvements in myself quite quickly and this encouraged me to keep going. Now life is so different. Living migraine free has made such a huge difference to my daily life and if you experience migraines I really encourage you to explore what you’re eating. For me it was as simple as giving up gluten, dairy and sugar. No more migraines. No more drugs. No more pain. Instead hope, possibility and the beginning of a new chapter.

This has been my journey so far – listening to my body and discovering what works for me. What might work for you? What would life look like if you started eating better and taking care of your body and your mind? What can you do today to make a difference to how you think and feel? Remember, it’s the little steps – the choices that we make over time – that add up to make a big difference.

I’m really looking forward to sharing my story and connecting with people at Feed Your Mind on Saturday. I’ll be doing a Yummy Goodness Food Demonstration showcasing Three Easy Food Swaps that you can make right now to help you embrace a gluten, dairy and sugar free lifestyle. I would love you to join me and sample the delicious, wholesome foods on offer! I’ll be demonstrating how to make Vegan Dark Chocolate with Roasted Nuts, a Berry Superfood Smoothie and Red Capsicum and Cashew Dip.

I’ll also be running a market stall on the day selling some yummy smoothies, raw foods, vegan hot chocolate and my favourite paleo chocolate almond cake. Come and check it out!
