Goodbye said hello to the Spirited Women Adventure in Whakatane Goodbye has been on the road finding adventure, inspiring green options, and business inspiration.

What a brilliant day, and we met so many motivated, switched on women. There were 400 teams of 4 women […]

As Seen on TV

I did not envision that my first famous moment on national tv would be singing and dancing about sandflies. No. And yet, I did sing and dance about sandflies. We filmed the Seven Sharp segment nearly 3 weeks before it aired, to give me plenty of time to wonder if really, I’d done the right thing showing up for this interview. But, classy and goofy as ever, Tim Wilson, kept us all safe with his inherent like of good-natured laugh. So, […]

Community and Sustainable, Healthy Cooking.

Community and Sustainable, Healthy Cooking   It’s been an outgoing autumn for me. Last month I was in Taupo, participating (as sponsor, not team member) in the Whai Ora Spirited Women’s Adventure Race.

Pukeko Garden

Pukeko Garden For those of you in the South Island, I hear you have been hanging out in the single digits at night. For us here in Northland, we have just had days of wind and rain with high humidity, and then last night, that first breath of the coolness of autumn. We actually snuggled under blankets! It’s been a very productive summer up here, with bowls of sweet cherry tomatoes, green beans, cucumbers and basil. Our pumpkin crop is going […]

Spring can be that way for people too. Rising energy that insists on some busting, bursting and motion. This can be intensified if you’ve got something […]

Bringing Sugar to Consciousness‚ Part 2

This Week from Becky I like chocolate. I eat it when I feel good and when I feel bad. My favourite chocolate chomping time is when the kids are just down for the evening, the 8:30 chocolate with a cup of tea. It’s not the chocolate that’s a problem, it’s the sugar, and my body […]
