Mostly A: The ‘Well-Intentioned’…
You once bought a packet of quinoa at the supermarket, inspired by the possibility of all the healthy meals you could cook up! But then you forgot about it, somewhere in between going to work, picking up your kids from school and walking the dog. Your go-to meal is microwaved scrambled eggs on toast and you tend to follow the old ‘meat and three veg’ guidelines when you’re cooking for your family. You’d like to start taking care of yourself a little more but don’t really know where to begin. One day, when you have time, you’ll plan out all your meals for the week ahead.
Mostly B: The ‘Newbie’…
You’ve just tumbled down the rabbit hole of health and you’re intrigued by what you’ve discovered! You’ve never really given much thought to your health and, until now, haven’t bothered learning how to pronounce ‘quinoa’. You’re wary of anything too ‘out there’ in the culinary world and think it’s strange that people drink suspiciously-coloured smoothies for breakfast. Liquid veggies? Gross! You don’t know your fructose from your glucose… but you might just willing to learn.
Mostly C: The ‘Wellness Warrior’…
You’re up to date on current wellness trends and have probably even started a few yourself. Your cupboard is packed with adaptogens, Gut Lovin’ Gelatin, organic veggies and bone broth. You love trying new foods – as long as they’re sustainable and local, of course – and your Instagram is basically a never-ending stream of food porn, wellness tips and reishi lattes. You #JERF on the daily and the farmers at your local market know you by name. Admittedly, sometimes it can be hard to navigate all the ‘healthy’ vegan treats at your local cafe – fructose overload!
Mostly D: The ‘Enthusiast’…
You totally aced the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program and felt amazing! Despite growing up in the low-fat era, you cautiously ditched skim milk and eventually embraced butter with open arms! You love cooking and preparing nourishing meals for your family, but they don’t always ‘get you’. They let you do your sugar-free thing as long as you don’t get too preachy. Your friends often tell you how fabulous you look – and you feel it too! You’re reinvigorated, full of energy and your skin looks better than it has in years. In fact, you might just sign up for one more round…
