What is Nourish & Inspire Me about?
Hi, my name is Arie-Elle and thank you for visiting our page. Nourish & Inspire Me is a space for me and my sister Brooke to share our love of health, wellness and food! What you can expect to see on Nourish & Inspire Me is all things health, including healthy recipes, wellness tips and we recently released an e-guide on how to stock your pantry with whole foods, it’s called Pantry Staples. This is a great starter kit for those wanting to transform their health! Check it out!
We specialise in creating delicious, but simple recipes that fit into these categories: gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, soy-free, paleo-friendly and fructose-friendly!
Why did you start Nourish & Inspire Me?
Nourish & Inspire Me was actually born out of a hard time in my life. At 26 i found myself unsure of what my place was in this world, an anxious mess, i couldn’t sleep and knew there was something more for me in this world. I was always a health conscious person, i studied a few years of Naturopathy and later became a Remedial Massage Therapist but never found fulfilment until i was able to use my creativity in something that i loved. FOOD! I love to cook healthy, wholesome food for my loved ones and it wasn’t until my sister Broke prompted me to start this site that i began to feel like i was where i was meant to be. So,from opposite sides of the globe, me in Melbourne, Australia and Brooke in Austin, Texas USA, we started Nourish & Inspire Me.
With Brooke’s background in marketing, web design and photography we make a great team. We built a website and eventually Brooke encouraged me to get a camera and start taking my own food shots and my love of photography began!.
When i was in my 20’s i was diagnosed with a hyperthyroid and told i most likely had Graves’s disease. After a terrifying consultation with an endocrinologist who told me i would have to take medication for the rest of my life, i turned to alternative medicine. I saw a chinese medicine doctor, i did yoga, meditation and i changed my diet… I never had to take medication and now my thyroid is functioning normally. Of course this is not the case for everyone, but i do believe the body has the ability to heal and that’s what Natural Medicine has taught me, along with the right therapies and your own intention to heal, you can.
I always loved the quote, “Be the change you wish to see in the world”. I guess that’s why I love working on this website because it reminds me every day to do what I love and not accept anything less for myself. That’s the message we want to share with you, you can find your most radiant self and do anything in this world.
Along with my passion for wellness and food, I love to write songs and sing. I am working on finishing and recording an EP and hope to one day share my music with the world too! So stay tuned…
I believe that there is no “perfect” diet or lifestyle that will fit everyone. You are a unique being and you need to find what’s right for you. Self exploration can be scary but has such a wonderful pay off.
Sending love and look forward to sharing some wellness, creativity and inspiration with you!xoxoxo, Arie-Elle & Brookie
