How to Find Time for You Even When It Seems Impossible

Hey gorgeous! Do you sometimes feel like you are running empty even before your 24 hours is over? Kids are driving you nuts at home but you can never find time for yourself? I hear you! I have been there, and your struggle is every mom’s struggle.

Top 5 Natural Remedies for Flu

It’s flu season here in Melbourne and I’ve been feeling under the weather the past days with the changing weather.  But before popping that aspirin, here’s what I usually eat or drink to ease the itchy throat & runny nose and prevent a full-blown flu to hit me. 1.

How to nourish your body beyond healthy food

Do you find yourself still feeling hungry even after you’ve already eaten, or lacking in energy when you’ve just finished a full workout? Or no matter how much green juice or salads you’ve been eating, yet you still don’t feel your best? You’re not alone. All of us have felt that way in one way or another, including me. And what you most likely need is not food ‘food’ but it’s soul food that you are craving for.

How I switched from corporate mom to Certified Health Coach

“What do you do?”   I often get asked this question in every meetup or gathering, and every time I come up with a slightly different answer.  Probably because I consider myself a multi-passionate entrepreneur.   In the simplest terms, I am a Certified INTEGRATIVE NUTRITION Health coach who helps women like you take control of your health and life by teaching you the exact how-tos thru online programs to achieve a healthy body that you are confident of, and a lifestyle that you love. But everything as they say starts with a story.  I used to struggle with weight issues …

7 Ways to Stay Fit When Travelling With Kids

If there’s one thing I love to do apart from chasing my little boy and tinkering around my kitchen is to travel.  But I am sure you would agree how it can get challenging to stay on track with your healthy routine while travelling.  I am no party-pooper though and I still believe in enjoying the wanderlust moments and not having to snack purely on celery sticks during your entire tour. We recently went on our first snow trip experience as a family over at Falls Creek Victoria.   It was over 7-hours drive and we stayed there for 4 …

5 Steps to Making a Healthy & Delicious Vegetable Salad

One reason why I love salads so much is that they are so easy and quick to make (no pans to wash!), and they are nutrient-packed as well.  However, a common dilemma especially for those just beginning to make their own salads at home is that they get bored with having the same ingredients in their bowls.  I mean, lettuce-cucumber-tomato combo all week long is definitely not as appetizing to me either. I am here to tell you that salads don’t have to be bland, tasteless, and monotonous in terms of flavor.   Here are just some ways I spruce …

14 Ways to Practise Self-Care as MOMS

It’s Valentine’s Day and most often we associate this day with flowers, chocolates, fancy gifts and dinners.  While I don’t have anything against that idea, as I too had swooned over my boyfriend’s (and now husband’s) heart-warming surprises, I have come to also appreciate more the act of “SELF-LOVE” especially when I became a mom. You see, motherhood has a way of shifting ones priorities.  Our own needs and wants become secondary, and all we can think of is how we can give more and more to this tiny precious being.  We become obsessed with pouring all of our time …

5 Tips to Start Eating Clean

WHAT does CLEAN EATING really mean? You probably heard or read about it at one point in time.  Does it mean having no meat totally? Going vegan? Quitting sugar or saying goodbye to carbs?  There could be different answers, and that’s because each of us is different. When I started my Health Coaching program with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I was introduced to this concept of BIO-INDIVIDUALITY, which means that our bodies are unique, and so should the food we eat.  What’s food to one may be poison to another.  So when it comes to clean eating, there’s no …
