Nourished Life

Nourished Life is one of my favourite sites thanks to their HUGE range of truly natural body products. From organic makeup to fake tan, sunscreens, hair products, water filters… I even bought the kids some toxin-free kids’ nail polish (and got rid of all the cheap toxic stuff they had been using for years!). Everything on the site is guaranteed to be toxin-free and meticulously researched, tried and tested by the team from Nourished Life, which is why it’s my go-to for anything and everything natural.

LUK BEAUTIFOOD

Lük Beautifood is a gorgeous ‘beauty kitchen’ where natural, toxin-free makeup is made from food! One of my favourite products is the Chai Shimmer Lip Nourish, which is made from avocado oil and spices and, once you’ve tried it, you’ll never go back to synthetic, sticky lip glosses again!

Lük also has a fabulous blog called The Beauty Kitchen where founder Cindy Lüken shares inspiration and information on her products, how-to guides and more. If you want more behind-the-brand info, I recently caught up with Cindy and asked her why Lük is so amazing!

MUKTI ORGANICS

Mukti is an Australian company that is ethical and creates truly organic skincare products. I have been using Mukti’s Balancing Foaming Cleanser, Neroli Blossom Balancing Mist Toner and the Balancing Moisturiser for the past year and been so happy with the way my skin looks and feels. 

The best part is that my 13-year-old daughter has been using the Balancing Foaming Cleanser too and knowing it contains no nasty ingredients makes me feel really good about sharing it with her. She has noticed a big difference in the appearance of her skin — fewer breakouts — and she loves the gentle scent. I recently reviewed the Mukti products on my blog.

FROOTHIE BLENDERS

I was lucky enough to be given a range of different high-end blenders to work with when I was developing smoothie ranges for stores including Bondi Rescue HQ, SuperMix Juicery and The Bondi Juice Co. Out of all the amazing blenders I tried, the Froothie Optimum 9200A really stood out, and when I found out it was half the price of the blender I had been using previously I was shocked!

The Optimum is so easy to use and clean, and it blends everything into the perfect consistency so that every smoothie tastes like it has been professionally made (which makes it SO much easier to sneak veggies into the kids’ smoothies.)

My girls love making their own healthy smoothies and they both prefer to use the Optimum 9200A even when there are other blenders available.

Check out Froothie’s website for their full range including cold-pressed juicers, free recipes and how-to videos.

BARE BLENDS

Protein is an essential dietary component and it’s important to have some with every meal and most snacks for energy, mood and hormonal health. If you are exercising, it’s important to consume protein within 30-60 minutes post-exercise.

Many people ask me which protein powder I recommend and the answer is always Bare Blends. As a company, they are ethical, organic and environmentally conscious and their whey protein powders are tasty (not powdery!) and only contain only a handful of – all natural – ingredients. I have never found them to cause bloating or any digestive upset and their blends are well tolerated by all my clients. My favourite is the Vanilla Whey Protein powder.

Bare Blends also offers an awesome range of good quality super food powders including cacao, matcha green tea, chia seed and a delicious berry blend.
