Hello! Iโ€™ve been super quiet on here of late. Itโ€™s been a lovely busy time catering retreats and events but also getting ready for our wedding next weekend. Of course we decided to host a 3 day retreat to celebrate @jeremy_matthew_walker and I getting married ๐Ÿ˜‚ and Iโ€™m so looking forward to spending time with family and friends celebrating with plenty of beautiful food in nature. 
Today, Iโ€™m doing tasters at @chokubaijo in Curtin. Come on down and say hi if your in the area!! #glutenfreecanberra #grainfreecanberra #bakemixes #lovelifeandglutenfree
As a born Jew, I can relate to the horrific events that have just taken place in New Zealand recently. 
As a mother, I can only imagine the indescribable feeling of loss that is being felt. 
As the granddaughter of a man who lost so much family during mass killings, I carry the understanding of what this could feel like to be marginalised. 
As a human on this planet, I feel the pain of itโ€™s families being torn apart. 
There is no place for discrimination, there is no place for separation. If you hear it, call it out. If you think it, challenge its existence. Separation does not work, it does not create safety for the children of our world, it does not create peace. 
Know this, the voice of love IS stronger than the voice of hate. 
Thank you @jacindaardern for standing powerfully with compassion and connection, thank you Waleed Aly for being brave enough to share your truth. Thank you to Everyone who bravely stands up to discrimination of any kind, you guys are what threads humanity together ๐Ÿ’•

Early in my career, I had a couple of humans whom I held in high regard, massively support me in becoming a whole foods chef and creating the business I have today. Their words of encouragement, and their actions of support made me feel like I could do anything. I am so grateful to these humans who in the fledging days of me creating something, meant everything was possible. 
Today as I see a dear friend @artbybasia flying with her stunning new art exhibition , I see how important it is to champion our friends and loved ones and that the real measure of success is seeing the world around you, succeeding, flourishing, and lit up! Oh it is so joyful. 
Congratulations dear Basia, Iโ€™m honoured to see all of your extraordinary self. You deserve every success in the world ๐Ÿ’•
Back in my happy place!! It all started with nourishing myself and others way back in 2003 and quite honestly itโ€™s still the thing that excites me and keeps me wanting to take steps into my future of creating a beautiful retreat centre. 
Thanks for having me cater your stunning retreat Jo Gates ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
Iโ€™ve been speaking a lot about creating SACRED moments when it comes to eating in my recent workshops โœจ

Iโ€™ll be honest, the word sacred has always been something Iโ€™ve resisted. Maybe I held that it wasnโ€™t grounded enough for my practical self? 
But to stop for just for a moment to honour where the food has come from, to acknowledge the people who assisted it getting to your plate, to bring gratitude and awareness to your incredible body who takes this food and turns it into fuel for you... is about turning an ordinary moment into some sacred. Something revered. Something steeped in meaning. 
Actually bringing the idea of sacredness to every part of life can make for one deeply nourishing human experience and Iโ€™m up for that. 
Whether you are feeding and nourishing big people or feeding and nourishing little people, stopping even for a moment to bring gratitude to all that we have, brings about a  new connection point, one that honours, respects and deeply nourishes. Itโ€™s creates a moment that is sacred โœจ
SUPER excited to welcome @purebotanicalsnewtown to our family of stockists!! We love and appreciate our family so much and are so happy that you now have a store to purchase from in #Newtown ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• Be sure to check out their range of all things natural, crystal and healing ๐ŸŒฑ
A message from Noa ๐Ÿ’•

Wishing you all the most nourishing and delicious long weekend, whatever you are doing! 
Feeling grateful for this incredible land we live on and the custodians who have cared for this land so beautifully, for so long. 
May we all continuously move closer to a place where we live in harmony, within ourselves, our communities and the natural world we live in ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜˜ Thanks Noa, we agree! And may I say, your vocabulary and wisdom is far beyond your year! 
#wisdom #harmony #glutenfreebaby
Far out! Iโ€™m so proud of my family and I and what weโ€™ve taken on in the past year and what weโ€™re about to embark on. 
When I said YES to a life with @jeremy_matthew_walker I took on not only becoming a mum for the first time but becoming a step mum too, to beautiful Mia. 
As a family navigating two sets of parents, lots can and will come up but there is always a knowing that we will move through to a more harmonious place for everyone. 
Iโ€™ve shared recently that weโ€™re looking at a stunning piece of land to buy so we can finally set up our own retreat centre for people to come and find their joyful innate centre once more, and we are doing that, as a family. 
And our family will include our beautiful au pair (pictured) AND the beautiful mother of Mia, my step daughter. 
There are so many ways families can look, and the more we can move past our own fears, the more we can create realities, we never knew possible. 
Iโ€™m forever grateful to my unwavering commitment to seeing whatโ€™s possible, to the life partnership I have created with @jeremy_matthew_walker, to the solid commitment of friendship and communication of Miaโ€™s mum, Misty @organicbeancatering, and the endless love and support of our au pair and little sister, Bronte @bronte.rose.moon. 
We are not a conventional family (whatever that means) but we are committed to a joyful life that works for us ๐Ÿ’•

Honouring each of us and our creations in life, whatever that looks like ๐Ÿ˜˜

Itโ€™s so easy to see another persons joy and success and think, if only I can attain that, then I will be happy and successful too! The reality is far from this thinking however. 
Our true joy and success lies in each of us determining this for ourselves. 
What is my measure of success? What brings me joy? 
Knowing this, and being brave enough to create your life accordingly will ensure youโ€™ll have a joyful and successful life. 
Thanks for sharing this beautiful quote by my fave #rumi, @eggoftheuniverse ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™
Wishing you a gorgeous week. However that looks to you ๐Ÿ’• #youdoyou #lovelifeandglutenfree #makingpeacebeforeyoueat #realtalk
So very grateful for moments like these. By the beach, with so many loved ones. Filled up by life. Thank you ๐Ÿ™
Happy anniversary to us! Grateful for the relationship we have and the commitment to ensuring that love, connection and nourishment is present (well, most of the time anyway๐Ÿ˜Š). Grateful to each relationship that brought me here, so I could be ready to receive this relationship with you, @jeremy_matthew_walker. 
This year sees us getting married (though our commitment is already solid) and I canโ€™t wait to see all that our future beholds ๐Ÿ’• love you babe xx
With a clear goal of purchasing a piece of land this year (to start our long time dream of owning & running a retreat centre), Iโ€™ve dived into learning about growing and harvesting medicinal herbs. What I love so much about getting clear on goals, is the natural pull to focusing and learning more in particular to that area. Over the past months, my love of gardening has blossomed and Iโ€™m now watching our garden come alive!!! I canโ€™t wait to build the most glorious fruit orchard and veggie garden on our retreat ๐Ÿ’•
