My get-the-glow philosophy is all about enjoying what makes you feel happy and healthy.
I think of health about being more than what you eat and how much you exercise – I call my three pillars move, munch and meditate. In my book, meditation doesn’t have to involve ommm-ing, it could be mindful colouring or maybe a walk. The important thing is to make time to relax to balance out all the go-go-go in our lives.
Getting the glow changes how we look and feel and even how we think. I want to show you how eating well, moving more and calming down can make you feel happy to be you.
I wasn’t always this healthy. In fact, as a teenager I ate really badly and was constantly on a diet. My skin was dull, my hair was lank and I constantly complained of being tired. Unsurprisingly, living off diet cola and low-calorie ready meals meant I developed terrible digestive problems: bloating, cramps and all sorts.
Gradually, I realized I had to change my destructive ways. I learnt to cook and started eating whole foods and found I was gradually falling in love with food, life, and most important of all, myself.
