WASSSSS UPPPPPP. Happy late new Year.

SOOOOOOOOOO its been a while between drinks huh... what has been happening with you?

Me?> Well.. I found my purpose. I found my passion and I found myself. Not anything too special lol. Its been awesome and I have had highs, lows, and revelations a plenty. I have put it out there in the universe now. I want to spread a message of health and wellness for mind body and soul and any one who will listen will hear about it. The universe listened and the paths have been laid out before me... I am now on the journey to become a holistic health coach with a leading nutrition school in the USA and I am biting at the bit to get into it all. I will post more in the future if any of you are interested in this amazing movement of individuals.

I have been lucky enough to connect with some of the most amazing people out there. They are inspiring, amazing and have pushed me to realise what I have and what I have to give and how I want to give it. Shout out to Jess from the Wellness Warrior. Blog about her will come FOR SURE.

My two passions, The Intolerant Toddler and The Green Mo Co are still in their infancy but I have many a plans for the two as well as starting a preview holistic health coach blog to follow my journey to become a leading Australian health and wellness coach. I will put it out there and make it known to you and the universe and now I am responsible for making it happen. :) I have learnt and am learning so much every day and if I can make a difference in someone else's life then that is all I want to happen.

I am dabbling, somewhat obsessively with Raw food, the Vegan movement, Animal Rights and alternative cancer healing methods and such, although I am far from being able to call my self one or part of any of the others. I am currently a "jack of all trades, master of none.." LOL I now stock a banquet of beans and seeds in the cupboard, explain agave syrup and maca powder to anyone that is interested and have literally been stopped on the street by someone wondering what my green slime drink is and why I am drinking it. On another note I also spent a day with my two girls handing out random notes of kindness to people on the street. It was an exhilarating, and moving experience to watch that person, that was just doing a normal daily errand to be handed a small note that hit home and made them cry. It made me realise how disconnected from each other that we are and how much we need to talk to each other, share with each other and live like we belong together... it taught me to smile more, ask more questions and to care more about who I interacted with and spoke to throughout a normal day. I now know that the lady that I buy flowers off was just diagnosed with a tumour in her ovary the size of a large orange and that she is off for a holiday before all her treatment starts... That one extra question that I asked instead of the usual "hello" and "thanks" made her talk to me and share something that was on her mind... This in turn led her to tell her story and then I could then tell her that I am very much researching and into food therapy and Gerson therapy from Mexico that is very successful in healing cancers and dis-ease even in an advanced stage... Who knows where this will go in the future, but I know that its is what I am meant for. I also know that she was deperate to tell someone how scared and alone she felt.

I also have been able to look inside myself, be confronted with people that have challenged my beliefs in myself as well as in them and it has made me realise how incredibly lucky and amazing my life and my family are and how I am so lucky that I have woken from my previous life and I am living in every moment and present in everything that I do.

My mantra the last few days after an "awakening moment" made me look towards feel good superstar Louise L. Hay and I have been able to learn and move past this moment using this quote that I want to share..

" I forgive you for not being who I wanted you to be. I forgive you and I set you free"

(Forgiveness means here, giving up, letting go. It has nothing to do with condoning behaviour. It is just letting the whole thing go.) I think thats something that we need to do with more people and allow them to be themselves and just let go... thanks louise.

I do realise that I have now turned this quick post into a very random collection of thoughts from the last few months but that's how I roll. LOL

I feel so blessed by the universe that I am becoming more connected to myself and my well being and I am learning that the only thing that we can control the ONLY thing, is ourselves and our thoughts. No one outside of us are in control of these things.. I wake up and the first thing I do OUT LOUD is say "I have a great life, I have a wonderful family and today is going to be an amazing day. Be present and be alive. Live, laugh and love." Now... of course, I dont always FEEL this way but guess what.. my days are happier, more present and more amazing as they go by so what does that mean... Law of attraction at work here? hmmmmm.

So I will leave you with a quick piccie of me and a FAV chickie of mine Lola Berry, an inspiring, awesome health and food warrior who is making her mark in Aussie land on TV radio and print. Now I hear she is working with Coles and that makes me all happy inside. She told me to live my passion... and honey, thats what I am going to do!!

Live. Laugh.Love

Thats right, the days are rolling into one, up early, lots of working, lots of living.. I have been in land of the living and spending time with my two favourite girls.. while they have been sleeping I have been working on a project that seems to have been handed to me by the gods... whatever gods you follow..:) Its very much a little lana orientated and details will be released soon.
Personally my dear husband is off to Can Cun ~Mexico for a "conference" (cough, splutter "yeah right") Supposedly he has to fly ALL the way there. Work for TWO hours a day (how terrible) then hang out on the beach, drink and relax the other 22 hrs.. Poor thing.. Then fly ALL the way home..

YEY. So "happy the next ten days to you"... send your thoughts to me.. i feel a cold coming on of course... right on time..

The Green Mo Co.

SO whats a GREEN MO you ask? It is this.

A green moustache.

The type that is left on the top of my baby girls lips as they sip away at some fruit and veggie smoothies packed with super duper green nutrients from the green veggies like spinach and cucumber that was whizzed to a liquid and served in a glass.

Its a concept. Drink Your Greens.

My two year old isn't going to sit down and eat a whole bowl of salad full of spinach, watercress and lettuce. Firstly, she doesn't have the ability to chew it to the point it needs to to release the nutrients it contains, secon
dly, she is two she cant sit still for one minute let alone the 20 or so she would need to eat it all. Thirdly, she doesn't like it, she doesn't want it. Sure she might pick up a leaf here and there and eat it but not enough to do the job I need it to. BUT she had it all today. it tasted like a banana & pear smoothie and was finished and the glass was licked clean. Did your child have all the "leafy greens" that everyone suggests they should be having? Did they eat all their veggies? Did you grate zucchini into your spaghetti sauce and then cook all the nutrients out of it?Were you deceptively delicious??

Its a symbol of raw food & the power it has to heal and protect the body.

Like I said in my wellness warrior post. I am bursting my own bubble. So what does that mean? Literally, I s
tarted searching for things that I would do AS IF I had cancer. Sounds morbid I know. But what I found was amazing. There is a whole movement of people that have rejected conventional medicine and have kept themselves alive. Given a time frame and have laughed in its face. Not just a couple of them... A whole world of them! What did they do?... A lot went to a raw food diet. A lot cut out meat and dairy and all the foods that many believe we SHOULD NOT BE EATING. I will let you know in time and as I learn. But they changed their life so drastically because that IS WHAT MADE THEM SICK. They also rejected a lot of conventional medicine. What we are doing today is what they WERE doing. So I am going to do it now. I want to do what they are doing. I am not going to wait for the push into it when a doctor tells me I'm dying. Why should I?

It is a revolution. It is a normal person like you taking control & choosing their life & their families life.

t will start with an image. Then a blog. Then who knows... In the coming weeks I will set up a new blog for this venture where I will show you in words, pictures and videos how to incorporate green smoothie goodness into your kids lives, and your own. As well as smoothies, we will look at raw foods, soups, and super foods that we hear about but don't know what to do with. I will find it and do it and show you it. Up to you what you then do with it? I completely and utterly disagree with the diet that children have at the moment. There is not one thing in a food court or in a restaurant kids menu that I want my kids to have. Nuggets, Pizza, Battered Fish, Sausages...all with chips? No thank you. Lets get educated, lets educate our kids.

Its my version of McDonald's arches. I want my kids to be addicted to THIS!

McDonald's is not food. Just by the way.

So I will be
separating The Green Mo Co. and this blog due to my possible need to post on the strange UFO sightings that have been seen lately, which relates just to me and not to the Nazi food side of me. HEHEHE

Green Revolution

There is a green revolution in the world and I want to share it with everyone. Details will come. Green is good. Even though it was the one colour I hated as a child. It is all that I think about at the moment.

A Secret Garden

In my quest for health we are moving towards growing as much food ourselves as possible. I read a disturbing article today that detailed how investigations have been done in the USA into what is being sold in the local farmers markets. Surprisingly (or maybe not as it is the states) not all the food are actually being grown on the "farms" that the sellers are claiming. Some investigative journalism was done and some "farmers" stopped off at the wholesale veggie supply company before parking their wares at the local farmers market to flog off the commercial product as home grown. Some suprise visits to farms showed empty dry plots that claimed that the brocolli that you bought yesterday was grown there. As well as that, tests were done on produce that was sold as "pesticide free" and unfortunately this was not the case. NOW, in no way am I suggesting that this is happening at your farmers market here in Australia, BUT when did you last do a check on where the farms are that you are buying from and have you ever asked them what type of weed and pest control measures they use? Because I haven't as I trust pretty much everyone right away until something tweaks me in the other direction. If you know of the farm and their farming methods then WELL DONE because I haven't gotten that far yet but intend to do so. I do know that our berry picking farm that we go to has previously used chemical sprays as the owner was very defensive and non committal in his responses and could only say that they haven't been sprayed in a "while" as I watch my two year old pick her 100th juicy berry of the plant and pop it straight into her mouth... hmmmmm

So anyway! Now we have moved to attempting to grow our veggies at home. We currently have starting to grow Tomato, Lettuce, Carrot, Broccoli, Capsicum, Cucumber & Strawberries as well as herbs like parsley,basil and mint. You have all been privy to my delightful garden bed previously. It is looking a bit better now. I'm not not sure if the shoots are the veggies or the regeneration of weeds so will leave them there until I can tell! As well as that we have some potted veggies and hanging strawberries on the deck. This is great if you are renting as you dont need much space or any land.

ALSO, I have scored a plot at the community garden in the town next to us. It is a magical place and I want each of you to do a little search for your closest Community Garden. Who knows what you will find. To me it reminds me of the book The Secret Garden. One of my favourite. and now at 28 I finally found it. Its sitting on the side of a road in all its glory and I have never seen it before. It has a wrought iron mermaid guarding it and I have been given the security pin to grab the keys and go into this heaven whenever I want. Completely enclosed it houses about 50 assorted veggie plots seperated by large stones and over flowing with the most divine veggies I have ever seen. Rhubarb is bursting out of the ground and huge heads of cauliflower and broccoli are everywhere. My two kids and I spent almost 2 hours walking around the garden checking out what everyone was growing. Daughter number 1 ran around calling out to me all the veggies she could find while eyeing off the scarecrow that had a stuffed puppy dog as a head, yes it freaked me out a bit too. Hidden at the back of the garden is a children's sand pit made with old fallen trees and there are tables and chairs made from recycled materials for you to sit and enjoy the sun. Childrens toys and mini cars are there to use so Daughter 1 drove around pretending to "shop for food".The chicken clucks away in his house right next to you and a big classroom sits there for you to use as well. Daughter number 1 really felt like dirtgirl when we found the worm farms with worm juice available at our leisure. Yummy. LOL

Our plot is full of some gorgeous broad bean plants at the moment so we can only plan what we want to put in there but it is just a fantastic idea and I urge all of you to investigate where your closest garden is and whether you can just visit or get a plot and join other like minded families and teach your kids new skills and new ideas along the way. Not only is it fun for the family. You get the reward of learning new things, being outside and soaking up some Vit D and your food is chemical and pesticide free and lovingly cared for by you. What more can you ask for.

Live. Laugh.Love. xx
