Hey there! My name is Melissa, I’m 20 from Australia. My main loves are long runs, yoga, tea, cooking, baking, Harry potter, nature, watermelon, figs and Insanity and Asylum workouts. I have a passion for health and fitness. I am a vegan, I believe in living a compassionate, cruelty free lifestyle. I believe everything on this earth deserves to be treated with an equal amount of respect. I have always had an immense love for nutrition and plan on following my passion and becoming a dietitian in the future. I am currently studying Nutrition Science at University. I don’t believe in counting calories or restriction, I believe in eating an abundance of healthy, nutrient dense foods.
It’s my dream to one day own my own vegan cafe near a beach and serve people vibrant, colourful and beautiful dishes and treats that everyone can enjoy and prove to them that being vegan is fun and rewarding and not restrictive.
With this blog, I hope I can share with you some of my healthy, delicious recipes that either I’ve created or have tried from others and been inspired by so that you can enjoy the deliciousness. All vegan, gluten free, low fat and nutritious!
I also hope to share the knowledge to you that I have gained regarding nutrition and debunk the common health misconceptions that the media influence us into believing.
Fitness has always been apart of my life for as long as I can remember. I swam from the ages of 2-12, including competitively for 2 years and played basketball from 7 years old. For 5 years I played representative basketball as well. I played for 3 different teams for a long time, meaning I was hitting the courts 6 times per week! I adore fitness and love coming up with new workouts and trailing new workout programs. I don’t go to a gym and I’m the fittest I’ve been in my life despite having taken a break from basketball for the time being. I work out at home. I am in love with home DVD workout series! I hope to share with you some of the programs and exercises that I partake in so that you do can feel the benefits that I feel.
