    Krumbled Foods with founder Keira Rumble

    Krumbled Foods with founder Keira Rumble

    Today on the podcast, I talk to the beautiful Keira Rumble, the founder and CEO of Krumbled Foods. Keira established Krumbled Foods because she wanted to enjoy a healthy snack that was legitimately low in sugar, natural and bloody delicious, and that’s how Beauty Bites were born! Beyond being a successful entrepreneur, Keira is super passionate about nutrition and women’s health. She opens up about her journey with endometriosis and pregnancy loss (trigger warning), and we talk about the importance of listening to your body.

     

    Key Takeaways: 
    What are Beauty Bites? Besides being the most delicious bite-size snacks, Beauty Bites are filled with amazing ingredients to nourish your body. Each Beauty Bite includes prebiotics & probiotics (good bacteria!) for gut health plus collagen to help with skin hydration, hair, skin and nail health.
    Keira discusses her experience with heterotopic pregnancy and the taboo around reproductive issues and women’s health. Keira encourages listeners to really trust your body, listen to your gut, visit the doctor and push to be seen.
    I love following Keira on social media because she is open about her experiences and is committed to showing her audience her life as it is. She tells me there’s a fine line between showing too much and too little and believes that if someone you follow doesn’t light you up, unfollow!

    Coffee Break with KeepCup

    Coffee Break with KeepCup

    Grab a cup of a coffee and join me as I chat to Abigail Forsyth, the CEO of KeepCup. I own so many KeepCups, so I was very excited to hear about Abigail’s incredible business journey. KeepCup was founded in Australia back in 2009 as a way to minimise waste that is produced by disposable takeaway coffee cups. Now KeepCup is sold in 68 countries and has really made a difference in consumers behaviour towards single cup use.

     

    Key Takeaways: 
    We discuss the impact of the changes to cafe culture due to Covid-19 and how Abigaile is navigating these changes. A lot of cafes refuse to use KeepCups to avoid contamination, meaning that consumers were forced to use disposable cups.
    KeepCup has just launched a stainless steel range, and the material is of such high quality that there’s no metallic taste! You can shop the new range and the glass cup range at Nourished Life.
    KeepCup is part of the 1% for the Planet initiative, with Abigail telling me that they donate 1% of their revenue (not their profit!) to environmental causes.

    The Perfect Glowing Tan with Three Warriors

    The Perfect Glowing Tan with Three Warriors

    Today I'm joined with Corbin Halliday, the founder of Three Warriors - a range of Australian made, certified organic tanning products. Corbin shares his heartfelt story on why he decided to launch a line of tanning products and what's behind the brand name. I'm so excited to speak to Corbin about how tanning makes you feel great and learn more about the Three Warriors range.

     

    Key Takeaways: 
    Corbin had been working in the beauty industry for nine years when he was diagnosed with Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome. After his diagnosis, Corbin changed his lifestyle to limit the number of toxins in his diet and beauty products. He discovered many mainstream tanning products contain harmful ingredients, so he set out to develop a toxin-free, certified organic false tan.
    Tips for the perfect tan! Have a cold shower or wait until your skin is cool to ensure your pores are closed. Ensure your body is dried thoroughly before applying the tan. Wait at least 24 hours after shaving. Put your tan on in the bathroom where you have good lighting, not over the carpet like I did! Then throw on a robe or clothes while the tan develops (it won't stain your clothes!).
    Face Tanning 101 - Use the Three Warriors Tasmanian Sand Scrub 24-48 hours before applying. Avoid using cleansers, toners and moisturisers before tanning as these can interact with the tanning agents.

    Natural Toothpaste with Grants of Australia

    Natural Toothpaste with Grants of Australia

    This week on the podcast, I chat with Tammy Aronson, the general manager of Grants of Australia. Grants is a family business, founded by Tammy’s parents in 1984, producing natural alternatives to traditional dental care and health supplements.

     

    Key Takeaways: 
    In the late 1970s, Melbourne’s water supply was fluoridated for the first time. Tammy’s parents owned a natural food store and were not too fond of the idea of their family drinking fluoride and brushing their teeth with fluoride. They opted for “herbal toothpaste” that the kids refused to use! This sparked the idea to create their own fluoride-free, natural toothpaste that the whole family would love.
    The burning question – do we, or do we not, need fluoride for healthy teeth? Grants are neither pro nor anti-fluoride. Tammy believes that consumers can decide what works best for them. Grants have recently launched their first toothpaste with fluoride to provide an option for everyone’s needs.
    Having young children and teaching them the importance of brushing teeth is always a challenge! Tammy suggests showing your children what happens to unbrushed teeth and make them aware it is their responsibility. Get involved with the cleaning routine and make it as fun as possible!

Love Irene from 100% Pure talk

This was a fantastic Podcast very informative and I learnt a lot. I have been transitioning to clean beauty and it’s so hard to know what some companies are claiming to be clean beauty then only to find that it’s not so clean .. very upsetting when you have layed out a lot off hard earned cash. Thank you for such fantastic information ❤️

One long advertising campaign

Irene is not a health and well-being expert and many of her statements are straight up ignorant. I’m astounded how unknowledgeable she is for someone who has worked in the industry for so long.

The information some of the guests present can be really interesting but the whole podcast needs to be digested critically. The majority of the guests have a product to sell and while some are worth it, there are some that are just not necessary or complete garbage.

I actually do enjoy listening to this podcast as a way to expand my knowledge but I’ve spent decades absorbing health and well-being information from different sources and can usually spot a scam from a mile away. Unfortunately I don’t think some of the other listeners are as discerning.

Naturopath episode was fantastic

I’ve been a fan of Nourished Life for a while so it was great to hear from Irene and her naturopath. I’ll be listening to this every week and posting questions. Thank you for such a great podcast!
