In this tag archive, you’ll find podcast interviews about nutrition. What we eat on a daily basis plays a huge role in the way we feel and on our energy levels. Yet, as busy mums, we often don’t prioritise eating healthy, nutritious foods. In these podcast interviews, myself and my experts will share information and tips to help you make healthier choices for yourself and your family that will positively impact the way you experience motherhood.

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.
