Up next is the lovely, Rebecca Gawthorne, also known as, Nourish Naturally.
Bec is an Accredited Dietitian, Nutritionist and mumma to be!
Despite many years of studying, practicing, teaching and writing about health, it never ceases to amaze Bec how important healthy and nourishing food is to our bodies, because food physically becomes you and allows you to feel your most energetic self and live the life you were created to!
SUPR: What does your morning routine look like?
RG: I wake up around 5:30am and get ready for the day. I have breakfast with my husband and then we go and have a coffee together at our favourite cafe. My husband then leaves for work and I walk home by the beach and usually manage to catch the sunrise. I then do my morning workout, which is currently quite different to how I would usually train as I’m 6months pregnant, but I’m still able to go to the gym or do an outdoor circuit.
SUPR: What does ‘health’ mean to you?
RG: Health is so much more than just physical health and not being sick. It encompasses our mental, social and spiritual health and these aspects all impact each other.
SUPR: What are five things you’ll always have in your fridge / pantry?
RG: Fresh fruit - I try to eat seasonally but I always have bananas no matter what the season!
Veggies - we always have pumpkin, sweet potato, onions and garlic
Tins of lentils and beans
SUPR: What’s your favourite form of movement?
RG: Running! I absolutely love it! It makes me feel alive. It energises me, it’s my “me time” and it makes me feel good physically and mentally. I love breathing the fresh air into my lungs, the feeling of the sunshine on my skin and being out in nature. When I go on holidays, I can’t wait to go for a run or do a beach workout and explore the place! Right now though, I’m 6 months pregnant and no longer able to run. But I’m so thankful I’m still able to train and move my body most days. And I can’t wait to get back to running when I’m able to.
SUPR: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
RG: Reethi beach in the Maldives. It’s where I went on my honeymoon and it’s my favourite place in the world.
SUPR: What is one fun fact most people wouldn’t know about you?
RG: I’m really short. I’m 5ft tall :)
SUPR: Why is it important to you to be Straight Up and authentic? Have you ever struggled in the past with being your true self?
RG: I was very shy growing up, but I’ve never struggled being my true self. I believe it’s incredibly important to be authentic and truthful. I always aim to be honest with everything I do because I want to help people and make a positive difference in people’s lives.
