I am Belinda from Ballarat, Victoria Australia. Originally a NSW girl, we moved here in 2008. Over the years, I have worked as a Radiographer, become a wife, a mum, a runner, a cyclist, a food lover and essential oil addict. I seriously can’t get enough of pure plant smells as I really don’t like the fake ones
Here you will find information about using essential oils that I have learnt and experimented with. I also hope to share recipes that we enjoy as a family to fuel our bodies. I am a big believer in that we are what we eat and put on our skin.
Have you had a light bulb moment? Mine was a few years ago at a party. The kids ate anything and everything. After getting home with their pockets stuffed with lollies and after eating a whole lot of junk, their behaviour was terrible. When I say terrible it was 48hrs of all three of them having meltdowns and behaviour that was not like them at all. After that weekend, I really started to look at what they were eating and started trying to clean things up a little. I had always cooked, infact loved it but I did make a lot of things with butter, sugar and flour. I started looking at how much sugar was in the yoghurt, the mueslie bars and the breakfast cereal I was buying from the supermarket. Much more than any of us needed. I started to try and up the veggie intake, cut out preservatives and reduce sugar. I concentrated of cooking nourishing foods. This is an ongoing journey and one I think it so important to teach my kids.
At this point along came my first Thermomix. I think I went to three cooking experiences before I purchased my TM31 which I absolutely loved. Amazing sauces, custard, blitzing power, bliss ball making, steaming…. so many things. After recommending thermomix to so many of my friends I have now become a Thermomix consultant.
I hope you learn something, I hope you are inspired and I love to connect so please get in touch!
Life is a journey
Enjoy Belinda x
