  • Happy July everyone Take a moment to breathe and think
    by pureandrawgoodiessheena Happy July everyone Take a moment to breathe and think about what you want to see, hear, feel and be in July. Time only flies when we don't pause and be mindful of each moment and day. We can wonder where half the year has gone or we can think we really lived and made the most of the last 6 months. Regardless of set backs, hard times, challenges our intentions were there, we grew, we became stronger, we showed up and we learnt and adapted. Take a moment to reflect, have no regrets but look at what you've learnt
  • On a day like this theres nothing quite as nice
    by pureandrawgoodiessheena On a day like this there's nothing quite as nice as a refreshing sorbet I was being naive when looking at sorbet recipes and shocked at the amount of sugar that went in them Sugar and fruit, why???? Fruit is so naturally sweet and tasty, so I froze my berries then popped them in the food processor with a little water and blitz. I had to scoop the sides and blitz again with added mint leaves. The result was amazing, soooo yummy and welcome on a day like today

    by pureandrawgoodiessheena Loved having this fresh mint grown in the garden as my tea every day and my kids love it too, when they first tried it they felt instant warmth, calm and refreshment. I also love adding it to sparkling water with a dash of agave for a cool refreshing virgin mojito. With so many health benefits that mint provides what's not to love?

  • So Ive been trying to let my kids do some
    by pureandrawgoodiessheena So I've been trying to let my kids do some independent cooking where I leave them with a recipe and they have to find the ingredients, follow instructions and I only assist with the oven or if they ask for help. So last week we made some peanut butter flap jacks which have been soooo great for an alternate breakfast for them. These flap jacks are dense, indulgent, packed with great ingredients and super yum free from gluten and refined sugars. Recipe Mix (dry)3/4 cup oats, 1/2 cup oat flour, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 tspn baking soda, pinch of

My name is Sheena

And my main role has been as an optometrist for over 10 years. I loved chatting to my patients and realised I wanted to help people further, so 5 years ago I qualified as a life coach and nlp practitioner.

I have been coaching clients within companies and one to one, and most recently through people's fitness journeys. More information at www.inspiring-success.com

After having two kids and trying to get back in shape, I realised working out just wasn't enough and that diet played a large role. I was able to find and make healthy meal choices but what I soon realised was there was no 'healthy but naughty' treats to satisfy my sweet tooth.
