My name is Bec and I will be doing the posts on the Clean & Green Lifestyle Blog.
A little bit about me!
I am 23 years old. I was brought up and raised in Wollongong, NSW, Australia and currently have lived on the Gold Coast, QLD for the past 7 years. The Gold Coast is such a stunning part of the world, I absolutely love it and its relaxed lifestyle – it suits me perfectly. My life consists of going to beach, surfing, exercising, travelling the world and eating delicious nourishing foods always. I eat mainly a vegetarian diet but also do eat meat occasionally when I feel like my body needs it. I only eat organic food and use organic skin care and cleaning products as the amount of chemicals and hormones that are put into everything we eat and use daily disgust me.
The reason why I started becoming so health conscious was when I became very ill 4 years ago. I suffered with chronic fatigue, headaches, dizziness, brain fog, heart palpitations, anxiety, panic attacks, allergies, lack of self-esteem, insomnia and hair loss which lead to adrenal fatigue, imbalanced hormones, poor gut health and pretty much a burnt out stressed and toxic body. Every doctor that I went to thought I was crazy and wanted to offer me anti depressants. This is when I started looking for other answers, as I knew I wasn’t depressed and didn’t want to go down that path. I started seeing naturopaths and acupuncturists regularly which gave some relief. Recently I ended up finding an amazing Natural doctor who tested me for a bunch of things and found that I had high levels of heavy metal poisoning in my body. I started doing IV drips to rid my body of the crazy amounts of toxins and currently I am still doing this. From the time I got sick it hit me hard that I took my health for granted and realised health is the greatest wealth that anyone can have and that you need to look after your body as much as you can from the way you eat, exercise, think and breathe. I am actually grateful now that I did get sick (as horrible as it was) because I have learnt so much from it and still am. I would never have looked after my body as much as I do now if I didn’t get sick and I eventually would have had to go through it all later on in my life when I probably wouldn’t be able to recover as quickly.
I was working as a flight attendant for 3 years and ended up having to leave that job as I couldn’t keep up with its demands and being sick every day. I wanted to start a business that I was very passionate about and could work from home whilst feeling unwell. My partner Luke has always been very tech savvy and I was so passionate about health, so we decided to combine our passions and skills and create an App (Clean & Green Eating) that was based on healthy recipes. We wanted to share with our community healthy and nourishing recipes that were easy to create, fun and delicious, not boring and were easily accessible from your phone or iPad because lets face it, everyone is glued to them these days. After much success with our App and having a huge following behind us we decided to expand our business and start this Lifestyle Website to share with you all our favourite products and this lifestyle blog to share my favourite health secrets, recipes, travelling, preferred cafe’s and more.
I hope you all will enjoy my blog posts! If you have anything that you would like me to write about, please send me an email =)
I can’t wait to start this journey and share it with you all.
