007: The Fast Way to Nourish from Within for Busy Mums | Mandie Spooner

Laughter is brightest where food is best [Irish Proverb]

1250px x 833px – Mandie and boys

Today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday is all about managing to eat nutritious food in spite of being rushed off your feet.

Now, I’ll be honest with you, but whenever I hear anything about healthy eating, my eyes start to glaze over. I’m not sure why, because I’m a complete foodie. I love to cook, I love healthy natural ingredients, heck, I even like grocery shopping.

But that whole healthy eating monologue I find, well…. kinda dull.

That was, until I met Mandie Spooner. Mandie is a Nutritional Therapist, living in the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia. Mandie brings a special sparkle to eating great food, and she doesn’t even mention quinoa, or chickpeas.

You’ll love this show because Mandie teaches us about how we can incorporate more broccoli into our busy life in a fun and informative way.

And the best bit? Mandie even gives you permission to eat CAKE!

PODCAST: What are your agreements? Lewis Howes does a 5 minute review on The Four Agreements. I came across this by chance just days after I interviewed Mandie. Great review from my favourite podcast.

PRODUCT: Stayfresh Longer Bags. (Type ‘Stayfresh Longer Bags into the search). I absolutely swear by these and have used them ever since I bought my first home 20 years ago. I even get my mum to post them to me in Australia when I run out. They keep fruit and vegetables fresh and crisp for weeks on end.
