03 Jul People we love: Alice Bingham
What started as a weight loss journey evolved to something so much more. From healthy food choices to healthy mindset, Alice is simply a breath of fresh air! Since doing this interview, Alice’s clan has grown from 4 to 5 and it has been a pleasure to watch how honest, raw and blissful her journey is!
TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY.
My passion is about sharing and exploring my version of Healthyland with my beautiful tribe of goddesses.
My content I share is about fuelling my body with nourishing food, creating healthy recipes, self love discussions, moving my body, the ups and downs of motherhood and lastly what and who I am inspired by daily.
Alice In Healthyland was originally created in 2014, to share my weight loss journey, as pre pregnancy I had lost 20kg and used the page as a motivation to continue my healthy journey. However since having my babies Cruz and Winter Rose, my health journey is so much more than what what I had set it out to be. Health is so much more to me than just a number on the scales. In fact I threw them out. My journey is now about mindfulness, self love, creating delicious healthy food, love, family, friendships and happiness. I am so grateful for this journey I am on.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT TO DATE?
I would have to say getting to connect with so many beautiful women EVER SINGLE DAY, but if I had to pick something work wise, I would say being interviewed and printed in The Collective Hub magazine for my blog. That was pretty epic!
HOW DOES HEALTHY MANIFEST FOR YOU?
Hmmm I had to think about this question for a bit as it is my life. It’s a huge priority for me to do what I believe if good for me and my tribe. I think it manifests me by helping me get clear on what I want for myself and my family. It’s a way of life for me now! I find everything about Wellness fascinating. There is so much information out there to learn, but truly knowing in your heart what works for you takes time. Trial and error. It can get overwhelming with listening to everyone so for me I listen to the rationale and why people are teaching what they are, take what I want from them and just do what I believe is best for me. I think this way of life has helped to shape me into loving myself more, being confident in allowing myself to be me and being proud of that in front of others. I hope that all makes sense haha?
Like I said it takes time, trust the process, listen to your body, listen to your mind and what it’s telling you is right for you!
IF YOU COULD GIVE 1 PIECE OF ADVICE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF, WHAT WOULD THAT BE?
I don’t have any regrets as I believe everything we do, good and bad – shapes us to being who we are today. But I would tell myself that life is a true blessing and wear the bloody bikini, don’t feel guilty about eating carbs and what will be will be so stress less. I used to worry a lot in my late teens and early twenties about what people thought!
HEALTH AND SUSTAINABILITY GO HAND IN HAND. WOULD YOU AGREE?
Absolutely! The more you research into your health journey, the more sustainable you become. You just want to drive towards creating a healthy environment for family, home and the world we live in.
WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO MEAL WHEN YOU’RE FLAT OUT?
Lentil or Chickpea Curry or a Bolognese. Both these meals take 10-15 minutes to create, you can use whatever veggies you have available in them. I usually bake sweet potato or white potatoes in the oven in a little coconut oil and stack either of these one pot meals on top!! Freakin delish. My husband and kiddies also love these meals too.
WHAT ARE 3 WAYS YOU ARE REDUCING YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT AROUND YOUR HOME?
This is something we have loved transitioning to in our family home, over the past few years. If i had to pick just three ways to share then I would suggest…
- Cleaning your home and body with homemade natural products. I make all of mine with Essential Oils and a few basic supplies. For ideas on how you can create them I share the recipes over on @aliceinessentialoilland
- I reuse all my glass jars, every single one of them. They make the best storage containers, lunch containers or for cleaning products to me stored in.
- No plastic bags, cling wraps, foils, produce bags. I use bees wax food wraps, mesh produce bags, reusable shopping bags, reusable cling wrap. Its a game changer.
