A bit of an insight into my life outside of food.

Seeing as though all of my posts have been about food I’ve decided to change it up a little bit and give you an insight into my passion that comes alongside food… that being the ocean and surfing.

Basically I teamed up with Choclo because I had a great connection in beliefs and passions with the amazing man behind it all, Roland. 

I’m a professional surfer and have been competing for the past 3 or so years and have had frustrating health issues of which ive only recently began to heal by my lifestyle and what I put into my system. I guess that’s where the passion for food came from as I’ve had endless amounts of sensitivities and food intolerances and I’ve had to teach myself how to make the most out of what I can eat. Food has honestly healed my body and is such a huge part of my career.

My weekly routine is pretty hectic. I generally do 2 sessions of training on Mondays and Wednesday… involving plyometrics, weights, paddle training, rotational work and a whole lot of other things. I do breathe enhancement training on Tuesdays and Thursdays and then other sessions get put in through the week depending on my energy levels and what’s on. It funny I used to dread training but now I just love it. It’s almost as exciting to me as my nutrition because I can feel how much it enhances my surfing and how much better I feel emotionally and physically. Yoga is also a huge part of my life now. For years my mum has been trying to get me into it and I’ve sort of had times here and there that I’ve liked it but always seemed to put it aside. Now I basically can't function without it… even 10 minutes of breathing or meditation seems to make my days flow so much easier. 

Anyway… this was a little bit of a ramble but I hope you enjoyed it J
