Make-up by Arbonne

HEALTHY LIVING FOR MIND, BODY & SKIN.

Loving the chance to pop my Arbonne make-up on today as Sarah Hickling and I recorded our second round of Lockdown Interviews.
💕I’m a natural make up kind of girl: a little base, blusher & eyes will do for me. Isn’t it interesting how spending an extra 5 minutes on your appearance can make you feel LOADS better! Feeling positive & motivated today, woohoo!
💤 😴 Also had a good nights sleep last night and washed my hair this morning – #winning at life!!
❤️The makeup that you put on your skin is just as important as the skincare products you use and the nutrients that you put in your body. Arbonne has created makeup that cares for your skin with moisturising botanicals and age defying ingredients, enhancing what’s already beautifully you. I love the gentleness of it on my skin and knowing it’s allowing my skin to breathe.
If you’re interested in trying out a botanical based, vegan, cruelty free products that protect & nourish your skin, pop me a message.
Plus there is a 20% OFF SALE while stocks last – hurrah!

 

INTERVIEW: “HELLO MY NAME IS……HOW CAN I HELP YOU?”

Welcome to Episode 1 of the Lockdown Interviews

Sarah Hickling (Business & Career Coach) and Sarah Attwood (Wellness Coach specialising in Kinesiology, Nutrition & Emotion) have taken to Zoom to interview each other about our respective businesses.
We want to introduce ourselves to you all and have a bit of a Blind Date “what’s your name and where do you come from” chat (am I showing my age?!)
In this COVID-19 crisis, it’s been hard to network in person and discuss business as usual (there is no usual anymore!) so we hope you enjoy these little behind the scenes interviews about WHY we do what we do and WHO and HOW we love to help.
We ask each other:
*Why do we do what we do?
* What do we offer as business and health coaches? What does being a coach even mean?
* What advice would you offer to your younger self?
Join the conversation by adding your thoughts in the comments below! We’d love to hear from you 🙂 Look out for more episodes of The Lockdown Interviews in the coming weeks.

VEGAN CHILDREN

HOW TO INTEREST CHILDREN IN PLANT BASED FOOD

Did you know I run an online wellness community on Facebook? We have over 100 people in our group sharing ideas and information. One of the ladies commented yesterday that she was
Join us here: Sarah’s Health, Wealth and Happiness for all group.
Greta, thank you for your suggestion. You have inspired me to spend an afternoon collating lots of vegan info for you all! Hope you find this useful
I love plant based eating and am always looking for ways to increase this. However I can get bored with just another round of roasted veggies and different herbs. We have been experimenting with so many new plant based dishes over the past few months (some of which meet with my carnivore loving husband’s approval and some are definitely earmarked solely for me when he is night flying!) but it’s been a delight to become more plant based.
Below are some food ideas and recipe suggestions, website links and an all important infographic about children’s nutritional requirements. Many thanks to Caroline B for allowing me to share some of her superb family friendly vegan meals.

NUTRITIONAL REQUIREMENTS

  • B12 – found in eggs, cheese & milk. Replace with fortified breakfast cereals, non dairy milks and yogurts
  • Iron – add beans, chickpeas & lentils, seeds & nuts, dark green vegetables, wholegrains (wholemeal bread & brown rice), dried fruit
  • Omega 3- found in fish. Other sources: flaxseed, walnuts (to be ground up for children under 5 to prevent choking), ground chia seeds & hemp seeds
  • Iodine to support thyroid function – I recommend taking in a child friendly multivitamin supplement

Top children friendly supplements:

Hopefully this infographic helps fill you with confidence that children can follow a vegan based diet with a bit of extra food thought and a little multivitamin as well to ensure all minimum levels are topped up sufficiently

 

FUN VEGAN IDEAS FOR KIDS

  • Tacos – roast babycorn, onion & peppers together or create a black bean version
  • Buddha bowls
  • Homemade pizza
  • Bean spaghetti bolognaise
  • Porridge oats with chia seeds & fruit on top

  • Wholemeal wraps with hummus, spring onion, avocado, red pepper, lemon juice
  • Mix and match bowls for them to help themselves including baked potato slices, smashed avocado, mixed beans (e.g. roasted chickpeas, kidney beans), spinach, tomatoes, roasted vegetables, coleslaw. Obviously not all these at once
  • Homemade soups
  • Falafels with side salad
