But recently I've been doing more Skype and phone consultations. With some of my clients living in regional Australia, or overseas, making individualised super smoothies in person becomes a little trickier! So the Nutritional First Aid Kit was born.
This new way of working allows me to sink deeper, take my time, and figure out what goodies would best nourish your body. I go out on a little shopping spree dedicated solely to your health, getting my hands on the highest quality products personalised to your needs.
I fill your personal Nutritional First Aid Kit with goodies based on our session together. Then I finish with a personal hand-written note, care-package it up, and send it to your doorstep.
It's a lot of fun for me, and for the person receiving it!
Here’s a sneak peek inside a recent kit I sent out.
1) Tri-Coloured Quinoa: My client was new to ancient grains and keen to experiment with wheat alternatives, so I included quinoa for its high plant protein content, and to give her an energy boost. She’s a hard working primary school teacher who lives in a remote (i.e. quinoa-less) part of Australia, who needs it to spare.
2) Raw Chocolate: Not all chocolate is created equal, so in addition to giving her recipes, I included the ingredients in her Nutritional First Aid Kit to make her own scrumptious raw chocolate. Being a chocolate lover, I understand the importance of getting good stuff! Loving Earth raw cacao butter is the highest quality I've encountered, and I love the earthiness of Power Foods raw cacao powder.
3) Biobubble Probiotic drink: are my favourite brand, so I gave her a bottle of their original brew, featuring food-based antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, enzymes and billions of beneficial microorganisms per serve, because she’s suffering some digestive issues. Taken as a 30 mL shot first thing on an empty stomach. Knowing the power of probiotics, I’m betting this will help.
4) Kosmea Clarifying Facial Wash: This smells divine and it’s my way of reinforcing to my client that our skin is our largest organ. I want her to use organic and healthy skin care products and the native bush ingredients remind me of the remote part of Australia she lives in!
5) Unhulled Tahini: for delicious raw banana ice creams and to use in salad dressings. This is an excellent protein source, readily digestible and perfect for her unique nutritional needs.
6) Young Living Essential Oils: Therapeutic grade essential oils are wonderful in raw desserts (jaffa goodie balls, anyone?) and cooking too. The Orange essential oil is one of the most used items in my dessert pantry, and smells absolutely divine.
7) Adriondack Pure Maple Syrup: I want her to try alternative sweeteners, and this is as high quality as they get. Hello, Tamari Maple Activated Almonds!
There’s plenty more I include in my kits, (books, body care, tea, spices) but you get the picture.
