Ep. 20 Interview with Heather Joy Bassett, Author, Inspirational Speaker & Ex-World Champion

Heather Joy Bassett

For episode 20 of “Let’s Talk About..” I chat with Heather Joy Bassett. Heather is an Author, Inspirational Speaker, Mentor & Ex-World Champion, an Entrepreneur and all round interesting person. 
Heather and I met on a workshop called “The Consciousness of Money” held on The Sunshine Coast in Queensland. We shared a room and as I got to know Heather and listened to her stories, I found her quite fascinating and inspirational. Heather shares her journey through the highs and lows of competing in a team that made it to the world finals. She ran her own podiatry practice for 35 years and 8 months before selling and starting a new phase in her journey of self discovery. Heather started doing workshops in personal development, sexuality and spirituality from a place of lack in herself, believing that she was broken and needed to be fixed. Over time, Heather has learned that she is perfectly perfect and is now sharing her story with others through her first book “A Cosmically Juicy Life” that she published when she was 59.

Slow Cooker Mung Bean Dahl Recipe

Slow Cooker Mung Bean Dahl Recipe

I posted a red lentil dahl recipe a few weeks ago because I was going to make it for a party we were holding but the day before the event I changed my mind and decided that I wanted to make a mung bean dahl instead. The dish was a major hit with carnivornes, vego’s and vegan’s alike and I did promise some of our guests that I would share the recipe.

Amanda and I met doing a personal development workshop and after chatting to her at the workshop I really wanted to chat to her on this podcast as she told me how she started her instagram profile @theprettinessproject from reconnecting with her feminine side and her creativity to experience a creative rebirth. The result was Amanda’s discovery of a community of people who loved lettering in May, she started researching how to do wedding and event signage and lettering art and has grown her online following from 800 people to 2,000 in 1 month by giving away hints and tutorials on Instagram for free. 

Healthy(ish) Cold Pressed Juice Cocktail Recipes

Healthy(ish) Cold Pressed Juice Cocktails Feature image

If there is one thing that I love about Christmas it is all of the socialising and celebrating. However, it is so easy to throw away all the good work you have done on your health and well-being over the year with a massive surge of artificial colours, flavours and additives sneaking into your diet at festive events. Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. Below are 3 Christmas Party Cocktail recipes that you can make easily at home or take the ingredients to a party to mix up for family and friends.

Vegetable Broth Recipe

Vegetable Broth Recipe

I have an event coming up with lots of people with different dietary requirements (I’m sure we have all experienced that 🙂 )  This recipe is one of my favourites because not only is it delicious, it is vegan, gluten free plus it is loaded with fibre, protein vitamins and minerals.  I’ll be making this as a double batch as a side for the carnivores and a main for the vegans and vego’s in the crowd. 

Ep. 18 Three Women on an Extended Water Fast

Water fast

For episode 18 of “Let’s Talk About..” I chat about the extended water fast that I did with 2 friends. I have compiled a series of video clips of the 2 weeks where we went for a float session, got a Zen Thai Shiatsu massage, went out on the town with friends, worked and generally did nearly everything I would normally do over a 2 week period, just without food. The general reaction Jo, Kelly and I got when we talked about our extended water fast was one of incredulity and disbelief.  Jo completed a 21 day water fast and Kelly and I did 14 days. We are still alive, no one fainted, we all worked and socialised during our fast. We all lost quite a bit of toxic fat from our bodies (I think we were all around 9kg’s) but it wasn’t for the weight loss that we did this.

Ep. 17 Interview with Sarah McCrum: Co-founder of Love To, Chinese Energy coach and Entrepreneur Coach

Sarah McCrum

For episode 17 of “Let’s Talk About..” I chat with Sarah McCrum: Co-founder of Love To, Chinese Energy coach and Entrepreneur/Game Changer Coach.
Sarah McCrum has had a wide and varied background that has taken her around the world and landed her on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.  Many years ago, Sarah started as a Teacher but didn’t fit so ended up at the BBC specialised in interviewing children for the BBC and their questions really instigated her quest for answers to why we are here in this life.  Her quest took her on a journey where she studied energy under 2 Chinese masters for 22 years.  These studies led her from New Zealand to Queensland.  She is the a co-founder of Love To, runs her own Entrepreneur coaching business with unique programs such as Energy activations, Game Changers and Consciousness of Money.  She is also the author of the book Love Money, Money Loves You.

Ep. 16 Nutritional Psychology: A New Realm of Research

Nutritional Psychology

For episode 16 of “Let’s Talk About..” I chat about Nutritional Psychology and the link between physical and mental health.
I want to delve into something close and personal to my heart and that is the research around nutritional psychology. My older sister experienced a psychotic episode a few years ago resulting in her being diagnosed with psychosis, depression and PTSD. She was quite heavily medicated to start with but over the last 4 years she has been working on getting well and is now on the lowest dose possible of anti-psychosis medication possible.  Angie (my sister) has just written a book about her experience and her journey to recovery – (download it here). Angie talks a bit in the book about my role in her road to recovery.

Your gut health is commonly referred to as your second brain and is the crux of your overall mental and physical health, which is why taking serious care of your gut is so important. With cleanses, going from exposing your body to numerous toxins from caffeine, alcohol, gluten, preservatives and refined sugar to a complete and immediate stop can result in some pretty uncomfortable symptoms due to the shock on your beautiful body.
