“I could never …”
It’s a phrase we’d say a lot to ourselves, and one that we hear on an almost daily basis ever since we took charge of our health back in early 2014.
One of the reasons we started this blog was that everyone was asking us how we had managed to lose weight by going paleo. Yes, we looked healthier because we had dropped over 30kilos between us, but the true transformation had occurred from within and was radiating out. We were bursting with energy, our skin was glowing, we had never felt better and it showed! It wasn’t about how did we lose the weight – it was about how did we feel so good? And why were we so happy?
And yes of course we still had internal struggles, body image issues, anxiety, all of life’s worries. But it was a true internal shift within us that allowed us to change our mindset and live a purer, healthier and happier life.
When we explained how it had all started with the change in our diet, and how this has now become a lifestyle, the number one response: “Oh, I could NEVER do that!”.
We wanted to turn those ‘I could never’s’ around and empower people to make a truly transformative change in their health and therefore their life.
And so, Paleo Power Couple was born.
We wanted to share our recipes. our journey, and inspire others to do the same. We wanted to show everyone how easy it can be, and how sustainable it can be!
You see, we have felt the call and it has led us down a completely different life path than we could ever have imagined because we are called to share our message with the world! Our message is simple:
ANYONE can change their life if they choose to.
You CAN take control of your eating, health and life .. you just have to CHOOSE to! Once you make that conscious choice, everything else will follow.
We have seen this with our own eyes, as we have helped many people through this blog achieve amazing results.It brings us so much joy to think about how we helped:
- a friend who we inspired to change their beliefs around food and themselves and is now fitter and healthier than they have ever been
- a mum who was able to conceive her second child by embracing a real food diet
- numerous people stepping out of their comfort zone and learning to cook new dishes with real food ingredients
This is what lights us up!
Yes, we do believe it all starts with food. We absolutely love sharing real food recipes as we truly believe that nourishing your body and putting your health first is one of the most important things you can ever do for yourself. In the beginning, this blog was all about sharing healthy recipes to show that real food can be seriously delicious and that choosing to nourish yourself every day is not restrictive, its actually liberating!
And yet, we are on our own journey as well. As such our blog has evolved, as have we. It turns out that changing the way we ate created a ripple effect across our entire life.
The ripple effect
This one simple change opened the door to show what kind of life we could have.
Choosing to nourish ourselves was the ultimate act of self care and self love. But it didn’t stop there. If we could change the way we ate, we could change ANY OTHER AREA in our life that we were not happy with.
We realised that we don’t have to settle for the ordinary – an extraordinary life is waiting for us. We realised that we can create our own destiny, and live life on our terms. We can nourish ourselves and shine, and by shining our light and living our truth, we can help others shine too.
We want to replace your: “I could never do that!” to: “How can I do that?”. The first statement tells you to remain trapped. The second invites you to break free.
Health, wellness and abundance
We started looking at other natural ways to support our health, aside from food. We wanted to reduce our toxic load, and have less reliance on medicine so that we can naturally thrive. Then we discovered the magic of Essential Oils, and how we can use them as natural sustainable solutions for our physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. We have had such powerful experiences with oils and they have found their way into our hearts and become a part of our everyday life. We turn to them when we need emotional support, to boost our immunity, if we get a headache or muscle pain, to help us sleep better and for just about any situation we come across!
The truly incredible part is we now have our own business and are building our dream life as we speak. We get to make a positive impact on other peoples lives EVERY SINGLE DAY, all by sharing the incredible gift of wellness and abundance. We get to hear how mums whose whole families are sleeping soundly thanks to a simple drop of lavender. Or the person who used On Guard to fight off sickness naturally and didn’t have to take antibiotics. Or how people are using oils to support their metabolism and to detox. Or clean their house without it creating a nuclear hazard zone. The list is endless and we are so grateful!
A new way of living
We want to help you open up to a new way of living. A way of being deeply connected to your true self, free of toxicity and fear based thinking. We want to help you choose love and trust.
We do this by sharing delicious real food recipes, inspiring you to shift your mindset, and to teach you about a holistic, connected way of living through the use of essential oils.
Let’s create magic and shine!
