Leading a Balanced Lifestyle 

A balanced lifestyle is essential for healthy living.

My journey with eating has been an interesting one, and my palette has changed from craving junk foods to more balanced options that allow me to stay fuller for longer and not leaving me feeling like I’m about to crash from a sugar high.

I tried various options from cutting refined sugar completely, to removing meat from my diet, my findings where amazing at how the body reacts to certain foods. 


My choice is not to be deprived from sugar or a piece of cake occasionally, when we deny ourselves what we feel like, it can cause more harm and eating more of it due to deprivation.

I have made some great choices, would love to share some with you:

  • Himalayan pink salt for all my cooking and baking 
  • Dark chocolate 
  • Filtered water 
  • Rooibos tea 
  • Green tea
  • Blueberries 
  • Oats 
  • Honey 
  • Nut butters 
  • Chia seeds 
  • Cinnamon 
  • Raw chocolate 
  • Cacao nibs 
  • Coconut cooking oil 
  • Coconut oil as a sunscreen 
  • Olive oil 
  • Butter 


There are a few places to shop for these great ingredients, your one stop shop is The Wellness warehouse. With branches in Pretoria I don’t find myself driving to joburg as often.

The wellness warehouse has a cafe! It’s awesome! If you like me when shopping a sit down is almost essential, ordering something healthy is instore makes it easy to not have your insulin levels spike or go down.
