051: Change your Food, Change your Mood, Change your Life | Bel Smith

Follow your passion; it will lead to your purpose

[Oprah Winfrey]

Do you feel under pressure to feed your children healthily when all they want are sweets and chocolate? Do you feel bewildered by food labels that appear to be healthy but you’re not quite sure?

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday you’ll discover about a passion so strong, it became a life changer.

My guest today is SuperMum, Bel Smith.

Bel is a Health and Wellness coach and lives a life on the road with her husband, Israel, ten year old daughter and six year old son. Last year they made the giant leap of selling their home and investing in a big green bus named Kaley. Bel and her family made it their mission to spend two years touring Australia spreading the important message of eating well for a better life.

Bel is the creator of the Mad Food Science™ Programme where she teaches children, parents and teachers how to understand food labelling and make informed choices. She also created the 5 Minute Healthy Lunchbox System™ as a way to help reduce the stress for parents packing lunch boxes.

Having turned to nutrition to treat her husband’s diagnosis of depression, Bel quickly saw the affects the quality of nutrition were having on all members of her family. She learned that what you put in your body has a direct affect on your mood, emotions and overall wellness. Bel knows that knowledge of nutrition is a powerful tool to both mental and physical wellness and wanted to spread her message.

Today Bel shares her family’s incredible journey across the length and breath of Australia. And she encourages you to think, ‘What would Jamie [Oliver] do?’ not only when considering your food choices, but your life choices.

I’m delighted to have Bel on my show today as she’ll teach you how to transform your life through following your passion, standing for what you believe in, and the power of self belief.

In todays show, Nikki teaches us that your true strengths are activities that energise you, and that you find ease with. The great thing about understanding your strengths, is that you can employ them in all areas areas of your life, including your role as mum.

When you discover your strengths, you gain clarity, confidence and momentum in your life; and when you play to them, you double your productivity, resilience and creativity.

I’m really excited to talk to Nikki today because she will help you understand your strengths and in doing so, discover the best possible you.

[Julie Ann Cairns]

untitled-design-4

In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be talking about abundance. Often in life, we’re bombarded with messages of scarcity, so much so, you might start to feel the optimism, hope and belief in yourself starting to drain away. But don’t despair, because it is possible to make a shift to the abundance mindset where you stay positive, keep smiling, and have your eyes wide open to all the possibilities, freedom and choice you deserve.

My guest today is SuperMum Julie Ann Cairns

Julie, a former economist for the Reserve Bank of Australia lives in Sydney, Australia with her husband and 12 year old daughter. She’s been working in the finance and wealth-creation industry for over 25 years and has taught more than 10,000 people how to create wealth and trade the international financial markets.

Her financial knowledge, alongside her own personal story of both making, and loosing fortunes, lead her to write, produce and direct her own documentary film called The Abundance Code which we’ll be talking about today.

The Abundance Code brings together over a dozen experts to bring you practical tips and inspiration to stay out of scarcity and keep moving into abundance. To connect and create. To collaborate instead of competing. To find purpose and meaning in your life instead of feeling lost, confused and alone.

I’m so happy to welcome Julie to the show today because she will inspire you to transform yourself and your life, and empower you to live an abundant life free from limiting beliefs.
