Natural Beauty Interview with Nadia Felsch

If there was ever an inspiration for following your dreams, Nadia Felsch is it.

After years of unhappiness in the corporate world, Nadia quit her job with no plan and no backup. She has since dedicated her life to living her heart’s wishes, and that is to share her love and knowledge of health, fitness and delicious food with the world, and with a beautiful new website and eBook, this is just the beginning for Nadia.

Nadia’ philosophy on healthy living is all about simplicity. She understands that when you nourish your body with delicious wholefoods, you will ‘look good and feel great’ and with the experience and knowledge to back it up, people are listening.

Nadia also believes that food is medicine and has used food to help restore her body from a long history of illness. Read to find out how she did it as well as Nadia’s top tips on food, beauty and following your dreams.

BUSINESS

You have made some huge changes to your life in past couple of years to get to where you are now. Can you tell us about your journey? 

I worked in the fashion industry for many years and the last brand I worked for, I was responsible for establishing in an overseas market so it was super high pressure.  The role squeezed everything out of me and it was just too much, it wasn’t my calling. I felt my whole life was about money and I became really aware that I didn’t like the person I was or had become.

Then my husband and I went to Vietnam for three weeks and that trip in particular struck a cord in me; the beauty, the simplicity and how life was actually lived; and a week after we returned I quit my job. I didn’t think too much about it at that stage, I didn’t talk about it, nor did I have plan.

I took a big step back  and I started working in retail a couple days a week to pay the bills. During this time I was really enjoying spending time with my Mum and as a way of spending even more time together, we started the Mum and Daughter blog – a platform to share our health & fitness knowledge and also to write!

After a few months of blogging, I realised we had thousands of followers. I had always treated the blog as a business from the beginning, I think that is innate me even though I didn’t mean it to be. Earlier this year however it was becoming increasingly apparent that ‘this’ was my calling and what I wanted to do so naturally it became time to re-brand and re-launch. Working and creating alongside my incredible Mum has been such a treat and even as I move into my own site, I look forward to her position on the site as an expert fitness contributor.

Did you have an ‘uh-ha’ moment that prompted you to quit your job?

Yes! Towards the end of my time there in early 2013, I was outside my office and overcome with emotion so much that I was crying. I had never cried at work in my entire life.  I was on the phone to friend and I said to her that “I just want to live my life, I feel so restrained here,” she was concerned that I would quit and truthfully most people thought I was crazy! Despite that reaction I had one clear motivation – I wanted to be free of the heaviness and stress, I realised that life is too short. I had no plan and I certainly didn’t see myself doing what I’m doing now!

So why did you choose food and fitness to blog about?

Food and fitness feel like second nature to me and they always have. It’s where I come alive, it’s what I feel 100% myself immersed in. Sharing my knowledge and expertise in a field that causes so much anxiety to people is such a reward because their journey’s can very easily turn from anxious to the best thing ever

Although I already had an awareness of what I was putting into my body from my family and my background in competitive sports, I wanted more knowledge and understanding. Experts would mostly tell me to eat chicken and broccoli to get all my macronutrients but I thought ‘surely there has got to be something better than that’!

I taught myself how to nourish myself and make great tasting food which of course I want to share with others on their own health journey.

Tell us about your eBook ‘Eat Well Look Good Feel Great’:

I wanted my first book to be really manageable and not like big encyclopaedias of information, to be easily accessible and have a theme. Because salads are what I eat every single day it made sense to launch with exactly how I eat.

Think beyond iceberg lettuce. This is all about salads to nourish, sustain, energise and make you happy. There are meals, side dishes, super easy lunch ideas and ‘you’ll – be – invited – back’ table sharers.

The eBook contains 21 salad recipes and 19 supporting essentials recipes to get you organised, inspired and eating a variety of delicious foods.

This is health that tastes great.

eat well look good feel great

 

Do you any advice for others who want to start following their dreams?

It sounds a bit ‘hippy’ but my advice is to forget money, because in my case it kept me trapped for so long and I think it’s really false. You’ve just got to follow the heart and not the money.

As Steve Jobs famously said, “… and most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

 

FOOD

What is your food and diet philosophy?

My philosophy is to eat as close to nature as possible. I have polycystic ovarian syndrome, two autoimmune system diseases and genetic insulin resistance, all for which I don’t take any medication for any more because I decided to make food my medicine.

I don’t eat things from packets or cans, I make everything from scratch and it’s not that complicated. I don’t eat fancy or elaborate things, I don’t have time and simple ingredients are the ones that taste the best anyhow!

Put simply: I eat real food.

What are you 3 must have ingredients in your home:

Avocado – when avocados are not having a good season it’s a pretty dire situation in my house!

Raw cacao – so versatile and surprisingly satisfying!

Coriander – in everything!

Nadia Felsch healthy eating

You say you eat predominantly raw foods, what are some of the benefits you’ve seen and felt of eating raw?

Digestion! Your stomach has to do a lot of processing through the ‘roughage’ and when you eat raw food, the enzymes which assist digestion are retained which helps the digestion process so much. You just generally feel lighter things don’t sit. I notice now if I do eat a steak or something like that, the processing in my body is so different, the way I feel the next day is so different. It’s not bad, it’s just not ideal.

Also, the difference in my skin has been amazing. I’ve always had pretty good skin though when I went mostly raw my skin just glowed, I’m 29 and no one thinks I look 29, it’s almost like a permanent detox!

What is your typical day on a plate:

I try to change it up a lot, the same as my exercise and I don’t do the same thing for more than a month.

Breakfast:  I make my own bread with nuts, seed and quinoa for breakfast and have that with 2 boiled eggs, half an avocado and a tomato. Sometimes I have some of my homemade hummus and/or pesto if I’m really hungry.

Lunch:  I usually have a salad. Today was a quinoa salad with eggs, loads of fresh herbs, baked vegies, chickpeas and lentils.  Sometimes I might put some halloumi or goats cheese in there.

Snack: A natural protein smoothie after exercise and a delightful raw cacao ball for those times when you just need something sweet.

Dinner:  If I do have a cooked meal it will be at night, like baked fish, cous cous with lamb or bbq chicken.

Everything I eat is very simple, uncomplicated and fresh.

BEAUTY

What is your beauty/skincare routine?

Just like my diet, my routine for my skin is very simple. I cleanse and moisturise in the morning and use tinted moisturiser with sunscreen during the day. I don’t wear a lot of makeup and if I do I always wear sunscreen underneath. I’m not a huge fan of makeup, even things like mascara I feel damage my eyelashes and make them fall out the more I wear it but I do love lipstick!

I exfoliate my whole body once a week and moisturise twice a day as well.

What is your best-kept beauty secret?

Water. Today I didn’t drink enough water and I immediately noticed my skin was not as plump or dewy, the difference was obvious. Also sleep – I read years ago that Jennifer Lopez said that sleep was her beauty secret and I think she’s stunning so it must work!

How do you nourish yourself from the inside to glow on the outside?

I think upping the fats in my diet definitely made a huge difference. Switching from high protein, which I was doing for many years, to high fat, I’ve noticed a big difference to how my skin looks. ‘Good’ fats like your Omega 3s and 6s are so amazing for our hair, skin and nails. I probably eat an avocado a day, nuts and eggs as well, fat is a large part of my diet and it’s working!

*My recent cholesterol testing from October 2014 showed it to be the lowest it has ever been.

LIFE

What happiness to you right now?

I’m pretty happy that the sun is out! That and the fact I am living my heart’s wishes. It always felt like a really unreachable goal and although I’ve not kicked all my goals, I am living my bliss and I’m so grateful everyday. I do what I love which is pretty amazing because not many people can do that.

What the best advice you’ve ever been given?

It sounds really silly but when I was 8 a friend’s mum told me to “stand with your shoulders back and walk tall” and that has always stuck with me. Not only has it helped all of my fitness work because I have good posture and minimal injuries though I think it really translates to how you feel. I feel confident when I walk tall, I feel proud.

What’s next for you?

My new site! It will be the ultimate food, health and wellbeing destination. Also more eBooks, I’m working towards another few over the next 6-12 months. Think delicious raw desserts, refreshing smoothies and juices and recreated classic dishes.
There’s currently some exciting collaboration plans in the works with some wonderfully talented people in the health & wellbeing industry + I also have my eyes on an app to bring my knowledge right to your phone!

Natural Beauty Interview with Dr. Libby Weaver of www.drlibby.com

Australasia’s leading nutritional biochemist, author and speaker Dr. Libby Weaver is empowering women all over the world to take control of their health. Whether it be through a TED Talk to thousands of people, a one-on-one consultation or through one of her five number one selling books, Dr. Libby is turning everything you thought you knew about health, weight loss and happiness on its head!

What we love move about Dr. Libby is her way of breaking down even the most complex concepts about health and the body in a way that anyone can understand and learn from. This, coupled with her natural ability to relate and empathise with all demographics (especially with all the mum’s out there!) makes Dr. Libby one of our favourite holistic health gurus.

BUSINESS 
You were at university for 14 years studying nutrition and dietetics, as well as completing a PHD in biochemistry- did you always know this is what you wanted to do?

No, I had no idea what I wanted to do as a child. I loved school and I loved learning but I had no idea what I was going to do when I grew up. I’ve always loved writing so for a while I thought maybe I’d be a journalist but when it came down to it, I knew all I really enjoyed writing about was food and nutrition.

The other part of it was more emotional – I’ve always wanted to help people answer the question: why do you do what you do when you know what you know?

Once I started studying nutrition at university I loved it right from day one and fell more in love with it as I went as I was just blown away at what an absolute miracle we are.

Why do you think you have established such a huge following? What is it about you that people love and relate to?

I feel like my message really resonates with people. I understand what it’s like to be busy, even though my job is my passion, I do run my own business so my life can be very busy. I can really empathise with people especially with women who juggle 1000 things in a day including being the main provider of food so I speak to them from a place of understanding and not from judgement.

I also feel that the message has been so well accepted because it’s holistic. I don’t say that if you eat x y z then everything will be ok because it won’t necessarily, but I get people to explore how they eat, drink, think, move, believe and perceive and it’s that whole big picture that gives me a complete approach to a person’s wellbeing.

 At Luk Beautifood we’re about enhancing a woman’s natural beauty from the inside out, tell us about your book ‘Beauty from the Inside Out’?

‘Beauty from the Inside Out’ is something I feel so passionately about.

I originally wrote the book so people could see that all the ‘beauty bits’ so hair skin eyes nails etc. all of those things rely 100% on the nutrients that are available to them. When you eat real food, you provide those ‘beauty bits’ with the nutrients they need to drive all of the biochemical reactions that create amazing skin hair and nails etc.

An even bigger point that I hope came out of my book is that too many people today live with the fight or flight response turned on all the time. This response produces adrenalin, which is the main hormone that tells your body that it’s in danger and therefore all the nutrient rich blood is diverted to your peripheries so the last thing your body is going to do when it think it’s in danger is send calcium to your fingernails to strengthen them!

When you’re constantly living in that flight or fight zone all the nutrients are diverted to ensuring survival and are therefore unavailable to the beauty bits. So for some people, bringing restorative practises into their lives can be game changing as it gets them out of that stress response so a really great new beauty ritual would be to do some restorative practises like restorative yoga or ti chi.

Have you got any tips for keeping a work/life balance?

I could not do what I do without my own personal restorative practices. I’ve done them now for 12 years. I have a morning ritual with some restorative practises that I do every day and I also eat amazingly well.

Those are my physical rituals but the other big thing is my attitude. I am really in touch with how privileged I am. I want others to realise that they themselves are very precious and to treat themselves accordingly because when you’re in touch with that, the way you nourish yourself with food and with thoughts will serve you to be the best you can be.

For others out there wanting to start their own business, what is your advice?

Be passionate about what you do and be prepared to put in massive hours. The beauty of owning your own business is getting to do what you love with some flexibility. But in saying that, when you work for yourself it’s even harder to maintain that work/life balance as you’re usually 20 times busier than you ever were before and you really do have to make sure you take care of yourself through the journey- that’s critical when you run your own business.

My husband taught me a way to break everything up into three horizons, which helps me to view the whole thing as a process. So my advice is to be patient so you don’t get overwhelmed.

Rome wasn’t built in a day!

Bang on.

BEAUTY
What is your daily skin/beauty routine?

When I have a shower in the morning I wash my face just with water and then use a toner and moisturiser. I also cleanse and tone at the end of the day.

Sometimes when I’m working from home for the day, I have a combination of oils that I press into my face which really nourishes my skin.

I only use organic or bio-dynamically grown skin care and mineral make up because your skin is a direct route to your blood supply, I mean we’ve only got to think about the way nicotine patches work to understand that.

The gorgeous, glowing Dr. Libby Weaver

The gorgeous, glowing Dr. Libby Weaver

What is your best-kept beauty secret?

It’s to realise that life is precious and that each person is a miracle and we need to treat ourselves accordingly because when you eat, drink, move, think, believe and perceive in a way that serves you, you’re in touch with how precious life is, so that’s the beauty secret.

How do you nourish your body from the inside to keep yourself looking gorgeous on the outside? Can you see the difference that eating organic, nourishing, whole-foods has on your hair, skin, nails etc.? 

 The whites in your eyes become whiter very quickly when you first make changes to the way you eat.

Next, the skin clears and the texture really improves. Because the skin rejuvenates itself every 28 days, so you take better care of yourself with how you eat, you tend to notice the difference within about a month.

It’s really important that people understand that your skin is an organ made of three layers, but the outside layer is dead.  The cells that form the outside layer are born at the bottom of the second layer and the best way to influence the way the outside looks like is to influence the environment in to which the skin cells are born. The health of your new skin cells is directly influenced by what nutrients are available to them so I want people to understand that if they are only looking after the outside, they’re just trying to repair dead skin cells, you’ve got to nourish from the inside out to see a difference.

FOOD
What is one of the biggest misconceptions about food and diet you want to clear up for people?

That there is one way of eating that fits everybody. That’s not true. People need to be in touch with what energises them personally as opposed to following a trend or labelling themselves like ‘paleo’ or ‘vegan’.

I’m all for people sticking to something that they feel really passionate about and that serves their physical health and the planet but I can’t bare it when someone says ‘oh I’m paleo’ just because its popular right now. Do what serves you and your body.

Can you share with us one of your favourite skin-loving recipes?

Pumpkin Seed Milk Shake- this is the perfect shake for anyone with skin problems. The nutrients in the banana, pumpkin seeds and avocado are highly beneficial for troubled complexions. Have a shake as a snack and give yourself a healthy dose of zinc in the process.

Ingredients:

1 cup pumpkin seeds, raw and unsalted

1 medium banana, peeled, chopped and frozen

4 fresh dates, pitted and coarsely chopped

¼ large avocado, or ½ small avocado

¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Pinch of salt

3 to 4 cups filtered water

Method:

  1. Combine the pumpkin seeds with the frozen banana and chopped dates in the bowl of a food processor or blender.  Pulse until fairly smooth.
  2. Add the avocado, vanilla extract and the pinch of salt.
  3. With the motor running, start adding the filtered water.  When the mixture achieves the consistency you desire, stop adding water and serve in a tall glass

 Describe your day on a plate for us:

Then, if I’m on the road I will have my green powder mixed with water. At home, if I feel like a green smoothie I’ll make one up using lots of green vegies with udos oil [a plant based essential fatty acid] and almond butter because fat really nourishes and satisfies me. (I especially love organic butter!)

Other times I feel like eggs with avocado, spinach and mushrooms.

Lunch- I’m usually out and about or travelling more often than not so I usually grab something from a local organic café.

Dinner- I make something from one of my cookbooks ‘Real Food Chef’ or ‘Real Food Kitchen’ or if I’m out or on the road I always order a big bowl of steamed vegies and sometimes I’ll add other things to that.

What are your non-negotiables when it comes to your diet?

I don’t eat anything artificial; no preservatives, flavours or colours and nothing artificial but I do try to remain really flexible. If I’m at a friend’s house who has prepared a meal for us, I take the gratitude in that offering as opposed to freaking out about what’s gone into it. I call myself a flexitarian.

What are your top three ‘can’t’ live without’ ingredients when you cook and why?
  1. Avocado because it’s got 19 nutrients in it and it’s so satisfying.
  2. Parsley because it’s high in chlorophyll and it’s just so good for your blood.
  3. Lemon because I love how it stimulates digestion and I love the sourness of it.
LIFE
What is happiness to you?

Seeing the light go on in someone’s eyes when they get back in touch with how precious they are.

What is the best advice you have ever been given and how do you live it?

My Mother gave me the serenity prayer when I was 8 years old:

‘God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can’t change, have the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.’

This prayer brings me a lot of peace because there are things that I see in the world that I don’t like and if I can do something about it then I will but there are times when I can’t and fighting with that can be really destructive and exhausting so I feel like that prayer has really served me.

What’s next for you and your business?

We’ve just done the photo-shoot for our next lot of recipes! I don’t know when we’re going to release this one but all the photographs have just been finished so that was a really fun project. I also recently did a TEDx talk, which was dream come true for me.

Later in the year I’m going to take all my books to the Frankfurt Book Fair and start to distribute them internationally, which is really exciting! And I will also likely bring out a new book this year because that’s one of my passions I just don’t know what that’s going to be yet it.

Natural Beauty Interview with Michele Chevalley Hedge of www.ahealthyview.com.au

When it comes to all things food, health and wellness Michele Chevalley Hedge is your lady.  For the past 10 years, Michele has dedicated her career and studies to nutrition and is now one of Australia’s most highly regarded nutritionists, health writers and presenters.

Known as the ‘Modern Nutritionist’ Michele runs her own Sydney based practice ‘A Healthy View’ where she teaches that good nutrition is the key to vitality, balanced hormones,  disease prevention and optimal physical and mental health.  Her infectious passion and love for health will have you inspired to ditch the high sugar, high processed junk and opt for wholesome, clean eating – the easy way [ as a mother of three and the owner of her own business, Michele can ’empathise with all types’! ]

MICHELE’S GORGEOUS BUSINESS

Michele before you entered into the world of nutrition, you were in a marketing role at Microsoft, tell us about why you made the transition, is it something you always wanted to do? 

Yes indeed, I have an Italian Mum and French Father so food was always a huge part of our home when I was growing up. I had a wonderful career with Microsoft but after having three babies, I wanted to find out more about how I could feed myself literally and figuratively…so I became a nutritionist and learnt how to feed my soul.

When did you start up A Healthy View and why? What was your driving motivation to set up this practice?

I started A Healthy View a few years ago, and prior to that I ran The Heart of Nourishment Cleanses around the world.

My motivation for starting a healthy view was multifactorial:

1. I could see everyone I knew- super smart professionals to growing teenagers- could benefit with personalised nutrition plans.

2. The whole food cooking classes came after many clients requested it.

3. Listening to the needs of many mothers, I formalised Cleanse & Nourish Retreats as short escapes with nutritional knowledge and a launch pad into clean eating.

What is your business philosophy?

Nourish yourself on all levels and there is no end to the joy you will receive physically, mentally and emotionally.

What is a typical work day for you?  How do you juggle a family, a business and keep ‘life balance’?

5.30am I put my sneakers on and head out the door for a run, spin, or yoga with my girlfriends.

6.30am I grab a quick coffee

6.45am I get home, pack the kid’s lunches, give the kids kisses and drop them off at school

8.00am Tidy the house

9am-5pm I start my work with patients, writing, speaking, or cooking. I cherish this time.

6pm Is always family dinner time

For others out there wanting to start their own business, what is your advice?

1. Seek out the people in your industry that are true professionals and try to work with them, seek a consult, or even try and get work experience.

2. Educate yourself as much as possible on your interest.

3. Be passionate, if you are passionate about your business, it is contagious.

BEAUTY

What is your daily ‘beauty regime’ (if you have one)?

Hmmm, I cannot say I follow one with lotions and potions. I nourish myself from the inside out. I eat well, drink lots of herbal teas and water, and sleep well. When I don’t- it really shows. Although, I don’t beat myself up anymore if I have ‘derailed’ from the optimal healthy life , I simply get back on track.

What is your best kept beauty secret?

When my heart is happy my face is happy.

How do you nourish your body from the inside to keep yourself looking gorgeous on the outside? Can you see the difference that eating organic, nourishing, whole-foods has on your skin, eyes, hair and nails?

Food is the key to health and beauty. For me, it’s all about eating whole foods, this means eating foods in their natural state with little  or no processing, additives, modifying agents or preservatives. When you eat foods whole you are getting the nutrition intact with all the intrinsic vitamins and minerals like vitamin C for collagen production, vitamin D for immunity, vitamin E for its antioxidant properties, silica for your hair and nails, protein for cell growth and repair and fibre for digestion & removal of toxins.

I eat a diet that’s low in sugar and high in good healthy fats. Not many people know that sugar actually ages you. Eating sugar causes the production of AGEs (advanced glycation end products) which reduce elasticity in the skin and reduce collagen formation, which therefore causes premature ageing and wrinkles! By also eating a diet high in good fats such as those found in nuts, seeds, avocados, oily fish etc it prevents me from over eating. Fat is also necessary for hydrating and repairing skin cells.

For anyone who doesn’t believe in the difference eating whole, nutrient dense food can have on their skin, they should come to one of my Cleanse & Nourish Retreats. I have hundreds of emails and comments from my guests that they look 10 years younger!

What would be your advice for busy mums who want to look and feel beautiful but struggle to find the time to take care of their bodies from the inside out?

I would tell them that eating well is not a luxury, it is a necessity. As mothers we are the ‘linch pins’ that hold a family together, the mother creates the mood of the entire home. If a mum is nourishing herself with a low sugar, whole food diet- she will have energy, vitality and balanced moods.  I know- I am mum of three busy teenagers.  If you need to seek out support via cooking classes, nutritional consults or cleanse retreats- do it – it is not a luxury, you are the key to your peaceful home.

What is your favourite ‘skin loving’ recipe?

I love Luk Beautifood’s ‘go and glow’ smoothie recipe full of avocado and greens.  My skin and my insides dance when I drink this!

FOOD

What are some of the biggest misconceptions about food you want to clear up for people?

That you should eat no sugar. That is silly. Sugar should just be kept to a minimum. If you’re a sugar addict and many people are, they may need to come off sugar until come back to good health and balance.

Fruit should be loved and enjoyed. Food should be loved and not feared.

What is the most common ‘food related’ problem people come to you with and what do you tell them?

We see lots of people who lack energy, continually have ‘brain fog’, mood swings and irritability because they are on blood sugar roller coasters.  Balance a person’s blood sugar and you can have an entirely new person.

What do you eat for breakfast to get the most out of your day?

My favourite breakfast is sautéed red onion or leek, two organic eggs, with a handful of left over roast veggies from the night before. I then scramble it all together and place onto a bed of rocket and a half of avocado.

Yummy!

My daughter and I also make these amazing ‘bliss balls’ that are low in sugar, high in protein and are just the perfect on-the-go sweet treat!  [ Why not try luk beautifood’s ‘Glow Ball’ recipe. ]

Our 'Glow Balls' packed full on goodness and so easy to make!

Our ‘Glow Balls’ packed full on goodness and so easy to make!

What are your top three ‘can’t’ live without’ ingredients when you cook and why?

1. Cocoa powder- powerful taste and good for you

2. Coconut oil-a medium chain triglyceride so you can burn it unlike other fats.

3. Vegetables- some at every meal. They are delicious, filling, nutrient dense.

LIFE

What is happiness to you?

That is a big question but I truly believe that one cannot be happy until they find internal happiness and self love.  Not in a pompous way, but a ‘hey I am going to be kind to myself- kind of way.’

What is the best advice you have ever been given and how do you live it?

The best advice I have been given are not words they are actions. It has been the actions of others that I  truly respect and observe that I try to model.

Caring, Compassionate, Kind, Truthful, Grounded and Centered actions (and that doesn’t mean without laughter!)

What is your personal Monday morning mantra?

Yeah, it’s Monday- damn I am one lucky girl!

What gets you out of bed?

I get crazy if I sleep too much as I feel like I might miss something so I have no trouble getting out of bed.

What’s next for A Healthy View?

Oh my word, 2014 is going to be a cracker…. FOS…stay tuned!
