When it comes to food, your body and your health, we are your gals.
We’re two imaginative, balanced and mindful wellness warriors, each with a Bachelor Degree in Nutrition & Dietetics under our belt and over 10 years of combined experience working holistically in the field of nutrition, food supply and consumer behaviour.
Our mantra? Moderation. Our folks taught us that. We grew up around veggie patches, mixing bowls and grandma’s kitchen bench. Creating food with family and friends is our jam and it’s left us really well rounded when it comes to our approach to health. Let’s just say, we love getting back to the basics and keeping it REAL!
Through our own personal and professional journey’s, we have realised a true passion for loving, celebrating and wholeheartedly enjoying food. It makes us genuinely devastated to observe the huge amount of pressure, pain and unrealistic expectations we see people putting on themselves and food.
We know that diets don’t work nor does having the goal posts set so narrow. So we have a dream…. to live in a world where diets don’t exist and people have a positive relationship between both food and themselves.
Our social enterprise is called Wellness In Real Life (or WIRL if you will). We like to describe WIRL as an enabler organisation. We enable the coming together of like-minded people in a fun, safe, familiar environment to embrace the idea of reciprocal learning, from both wellness warriors (such as ourselves) and one-and-other. Because let’s face it, we are all the experts of our own experiences.
At the moment we’re enabling this in the form of Wellness Workshops and they’re a ripper of a good time. For each workshop topic we donate a portion of our profits to a charity organisation related to the topic. It’s a feel good frenzy and we’d love to have you join us soon!
