A new kind of healthy with integrative nutrition coach Denise McClelland-Yates
Today's guest, Denise McClelland Yates from Grenfell in central west New South Wales, rings true precisely the sort of women I want to tap into: ambitious women living in rural Australia.
Denise has never let the fact that she lives in a small - yet strong - rural community hold her back. She's worked so many careers - and after this chat -and most things she turns her hand to she becomes a master at! She's also a perfectionist, and a fellow Virgo.
Denise's latest business is as a holistic health coach for integrative nutrition. Her business Lorien Well encompasses all facets of health, physical, mental, hormonal, sexual, relationships - the whole bit!
I hope you love this chat as much as I did.
Thank you to our Winter Series sponsor Linder Quality Socks.

Shani Nottingham's Bread Tag Project is something we should all know about
The Bread Tag Project started when Shani Nottingham's boys were hungry and devouring tonnes of bread a week and leaving the bread tags all over the kitchen. Shani's creative mind naturally took over - and she decided this was going to be her point of difference as an artist.
That was almost four years ago and now The Bread Tag project has become a huge beast, fuelled by bread tags send to Shani, in Cowra in central west NSW from all over the world and not just envelopes full, huge bags and boxes full.
Today you will learn of what's become of Shani's idea - which is a ever evolving project with 7 main aims. If you know of anyone who would be interested please forward this podcast to them and listen in for Shani's best contact details so you can take part too.

Really Rurally Fantastic
Something about hearing folks living more rural just feels wholesome. Skye asks pertinent questions and helps us get a quick but deep look into the life of her guests. Very solid!
Hooked on Company
I love this podcast and feel especially inspired by the interview with Zoe. Time to ditch the city and take up painting somewhere out bush! 🌾
