A Savoury Soul: Tara Bliss // Such Different Skies

Hey Kids! So, I'm not exactly bringing the A Savoury Soul interview series back quite yet but this one is super special so I had to share with you ASAP. Have you heard of the lovely Tara Bliss from Such Different Skies? If not then you will thank me later. I started following Tara's blog about a year ago when I stumbled upon it, I think from Jess Ainscough's blog, The Wellness Warrior and I was hooked right away.

Tara has a raw authenticity about her that makes you feel like you are sitting right next to her. Through her writing and vlogs you are pulled into her spirited world and find yourself going back for more regularly.

I'm excited to share this interview with you because she is such a huge source of inspiration for me and I think she will be for you as well. Make sure you read the whole interview because Tara and her sweetie, Glen have just released their new eCookbook, Such Different Eats and she offers you all one of their amazing recipes below. You will also find a direct link to purchase the book below and believe me, it is SO worth the $19. It is full of delectable whole, plant-based recipes that will leave your mouth watering and your body longing for more!

living-in-the-moment Tell me all about your mission?

To start with, thank you for asking! It’s a BIG question, and one I find myself contemplating almost daily.

If I can break it down in the most digestible of ways, I’d say this: My mission is to radiate a message that moves people to their core; that shakes them about; rocks them; and inspires them into action. I am incredibly passionate about illuminating hope in the hearts of those that enter my life.

That can unfold in any number of ways. Whether someone has been through my program (the Party Girls Guide to Peace), or they’ve read one of my books, watched one of my videos, coached with me or heard me speak at an event, in every one of these transactions of time and energy, my mission is to open up a new way of thinking.

I like to say that my original medicine is: fierce and curious vulnerability, as well as purposeful rebellion. I want to stretch people.

The name Such Different Skies is about just that. We’re all seeing the same sky. But, at the same time, we’re actually really not. Perception is like poetry to me: mysterious, and worth opening a discussion about.

What sparked your interest in coaching/mentoring?

It chose me to be honest!

I’ve always wanted to be useful to people, and after self-diagnosing myself with Scatterbrain Syndrome, became really quite frustrated with my inability to stick to a certain endeavour or career path. I’ve hairdressed, gone to uni, became a qualified personal trainer. I waitressed and bar tended for years. None of it stuck. It all kinda bored me.

Coaching fell in my lap after I continued to share my stories and insights on my blog. People were knocking on my inbox’s door, asking ever so politely for guidance and assistance on their path. Before I knew it, a business was born.

From there, I’ve not looked back. I’m still forever trying new things and course directing, but these days, it’s all aligned. It’s all pointing in the same direction. Where? Wouldn’t have a bloody clue - but it feels good. I feel useful, and fulfilled, and incredibly grateful.

What is your favorite thing about coaching?

Hands down: being stunned to the point of jaw dropping awe each time I hear one of my girls has quit her job / written her book / gotten the promotion / found the love of her life / launched her blog / sobered up / cultivated true peace in her normally chaotic life.

To think that I may play a role in facilitating the bravery that these women muster is beyond an honour. They inspire the pants off me.

Tell us a little bit more about your program, Party Girls Guide to Peace? Sounds amazing and I know it has helped so many!

It really is amazing. I’m so proud of the work that it’s done in the world. It’s a labour of love of mine – so much so that I’ve taken it off the shelves so I can create something that will help more women than ever before.

Basically my mission statement with the Party Girls Guide to Peace has been and will continue to be this: You are NOT your Party Girl identity. You are bigger, better, more beautiful, more radiant, more incredible, when you are just the way you are. Watch this space.

Finish these sentences:

I am happiest when…

I straighten my legs out into savasana.

That moment when my man smiles at me when I collect him from the airport every month.

I gift myself the mornings (a new habit of mine which is paying off big time). I’m laughing with my girls.

I come up for that big burst of fresh air after diving under my first wave of the day. I hang up from a call with my client, knowing she’s inspired and raring to go. Glen and I connect over one of his beautiful meals.

I am currently listening to…

A hell of a lot of Lorde. Her lyrics transcend what should be humanly possibly for any 16 year old to write.

And MJ. Pah-lenty of MJ.

My favorite place is…

Tara Burleigh If I’m not on some epic, life changing adventure, then I want to be here. At home. Burleigh Heads. I don’t know what it is about this place but it has certainly picked me to pieces and plugged me into the shoreline. I can actually feel my stomach cramp up when I drive away from the beach and towards the highway!

I feel more natural, more beautiful, more joyful, when I am here.

It makes my blood boil when…

People plagiarize the work of my friends.

I am most grateful… To be here. To get another crack at life each morning, and everything that comes with it: the man, the kindred spirits, the work, the adventure, the contemplations, the stillness. I am just so, so incredibly grateful to be alive.

Actually, last night, when I stepped out of the shower and reached for my towel, I said out loud : F*ck I love my life. That type of thing happens regularly.

I just want to add here how grateful I am for my man, Glen. He is my warmth.

What does self-care/love mean to you?

I truly believe that if we’re to adopt a self-care practice, then we must cultivate a foundation of self love first. Otherwise, we’re just wearing another pretend-mask. The ‘yogi.’ The ‘vegan.’ The ‘green juicer.’

When we radiate love for ourselves, we’ll naturally feel compelled to express that love in a physical way, and that’ll take a different shape for everyone. Meditation, gentleness, whole foods, exercise. There is no blueprint.

For me, it means gifting myself the mornings, and this means the absolute world to me. It has changed the way I approach my day, do business, and create. Both self love and self care are vital elements of my life, both of which are integrated into me and occur quite naturally.

I’m all about embracing who we are right now. What is your favorite thing about yourself, personality and appearance?

What a rad question!

Personality: I’m enthusiastic, unapologetically curious and silly.

Appearance: I like my shoulders and my upper back :)

In your own words, what is a Savoury Soul?

Hhhm. Savoury Soul sounds quite Earthy too me. Grounded. And when I think of ‘savoury’ and ‘earthy’ I think of my man’s Sweet Potato Gnocchi!

gnocchi 2 RECIPE

Ingredients

Sweet Potato - 1kg, whole

Whole Spelt Flour - 350 gm

Sage - ¼ cup, finely chopped

Rosemary - ¼ cup,finely chopped

Salt & Pepper

Peas - ½ cup, fresh if possible

Asparagus - 24 spears, cut on an angle

Broccolini - 20, florets trimmed off, stalks cut on an angle

Spring Onion - 8, cut on an angle

Brown Onion - 1, finely sliced

Confit Garlic - 12 cloves, chopped {Recipe is in upcoming eBook}

Sage - ¾ cup, whole leaves

Salt & Pepper

Coconut Oil

Method

Preheat your oven to 180c. Cut sweet potato in half lengthways and put it onto a baking tray cut side down. Cook this in the oven until a knife can easily be inserted right to the middle.

Remove the flesh from the skin. Puree the flesh in a food processor or using a fork.

Remove flesh to a bowl and add sage, rosemary and a generous amount of salt and pepper.

Add flour and mix by hand until well incorporated. (You may need gloves. The potato will be hot!)

To shape the gnocchi, you can either roll the dough with your hands on a floured bench then cut to desired length with a knife, OR put the gnocchi dough into a piping bag and squeeze it out through the largest nozzle you have, cutting them off at about 1.5cms length.

In a large pot of simmering salted water, cook gnocchi in small batches until they float. Once they are floating, spoon them into iced water to cool.

Once cooled, remove from the iced water and lay out on a tea towel. Allow to dry.

Once dry, lightly coat with olive oil.

{At this stage, you can either go ahead and cook the gnocchi, or store for a few days in the fridge} Preheat your oven to 180c.

Spread gnocchi evenly onto a baking tray and put them in the oven for 15 minutes, giving the tray a little shake 3-4 times.

After gnocchi has been in the oven for 5 minutes, in a large frypan over medium to high heat, cook onion and garlic in a little coconut oil until they start to brown.

Add sage leaves, asparagus and broccolini stems and continue to cook for 3 minutes, tossing occasionally.

Add peas, spring onion, broccolini florets and 2 tablespoons of confit garlic oil and cook for a further 1 minute.

Remove gnocchi from the oven and put into a large bowl with the ingredients from the frying pan.

Toss thoroughly, season and divide evenly among plates.

A Savoury Soul: Sarah Nicholls // Nutritional Bliss

Sarah"This is not nutrition as you know it. This is about intuitive eating, listening to your body’s messages and learning to act in alignment with its highest needs. Think nourishment on all levels - body, mind and soul."

A Wellness lover at heart, Sarah Nicholls, from Nutritional Bliss has a mission and it is pretty simple. She believes wholeheartedly that we have to nourish our whole selves - body, mind and soul through good food, mindfulness, movement and kindness towards ourselves.

A registered nurse and holistic nutritionist, Sarah believes that everyone has a unique makeup and no two people are the same and should be approached with that attitude.

Without further ado....please meet Sarah!

Tell me about your mission?

I am a woman on a mission of health and wellness. I have felt what it is like to be bed ridden and sick, and what it is like to glow with health. And glowing with health feels a hell of a lot better!!!!

I want to be able to inspire other souls to shine with wellness and grow to truly love and understand real foods.

What sparked your interest in healthy living?

For me this started when I was young, I always wanted to be a nurse and help people in need. When I was 18 I enrolled into a bachelor of nursing, to follow this dream. While studying nursing I was more interested in my social life than I was in the human body but I stuck out the degree and became a nurse at the ripe age of 22. At the same time of starting my new career, I became unwell and then was diagnosed with celiac disease. This was the turning point in my journey, which leads me to love natural health and enroll into my degree of nutritional medicine, and I have not looked back once.

What do you find people struggle most in regards to their healthy eating?

I find that the most common problems my clients have in regards to their healthy eating is organization and preparation. I believe no one wants to be unhealthy, people just sometimes become so overwhelmed in their busy lives and schedules, that they forget to take that our for themselves and their health.

If you could cook for anyone who would it be?

Hehe, I’d cook for my biggest celebrity crush…Phil Jamieson, the lead singer of Grinspoon. I’ve had a star crush on him for about 10 years; there is something about the bad boy rock star that I find hot! I’d cook for him, and then pick his brain about the life of a rock star…I have no musical talent whatsoever but I have always fantasized about being a rock star in another life.

Top 3 plant based ingredients:

- Coconuts - Mangoes - Spinach

Finish these sentences:

I’m happiest when... I am at the beach, bare foot, sand on my feet, sun shining, waves crashing….my bliss!

I’m currently listening to... Old school Interpol, antics.

My favorite place is...The airport, bags packed on my way to the next adventure, I seriously don’t care where it is, but that excitement of getting on a plane in a new city, knowing new adventures are awaiting...ahhh it gets me every time, the best feeling ever!

It makes my blood boil when... People smoke on top of me!

I am most grateful for... Health and love in my life

What does self-care/love mean for you?

I believe we must love ourselves in order to be able to give the best to others. Self-love is very important to me, after being a nurse and running around on no sleep, coffee and sugar dependent for energy, I have learnt now that we need to take time out for ourselves. This is my priority now so that I can be the best version of myself.

What is your favorite thing about yourself, personality and your appearance?

Hmmm I think I'm pretty funny haha! I crack myself up all the time! My appearance, well I am blessed to have my mothers Exotic Island colored skin, no spray tans for me…that’s always been a bonus!!

In your own words, what is a savory soul?

A savory soul is my kind of girl. A fresh and inspired soul, willing to grow and learn, and always on a journey of health and self-discovery.

A Savoury Soul: Whitney Scofield Mack // Macks Mo

macks mo I first met this weeks Savoury Soul, Whitney, when we briefly worked together at lululemon athletica in Seattle. Whitney is extremely sweet and a pillar in the community of health, wellness and fitness with her company, Mack's Mo that she and her husband started in 2012.

Macks Mo is a health community designed to give you the tools required to get the most out of life, offering both individual and group training and recently added, online nutritional coaching. Whitney is a fellow IINer (Institute of Integrative Nutrition) as well! We most definitely are creating a ripple affect!

You can tell that Whitney has one of the deepest passions when it comes to health, fitness and wellness and she is nothing short of motivating.

Without further ado...

Tell me all about your mission?

I believe in the power of momentum – that every little step and small decision along the way to improving your health adds up to lasting changes that stand the test of time. By using food and fitness as a foundation for establishing positive habits, clients build the momentum needed to wisely examine every action to streamline a path towards creating a life overflowing with happiness, passion and joy that’s lived to the “macks”.

What sparked your interest in living a healthy life?

Two things: cooking with my Mom and working at lululemon athletica and getting involved within the fitness community. Cooking with my mom inspired me to cook more at home, which ultimately developed my love for cooking at home with good food. I loved the energy of group fitness classes and the potential to share healthy habits within a tight-knit community, which ignited my desire to teach.

What do you find people are most confused about in regards to eating healthy?

Labels. Food marketing is super misleading and consumers trying to be make healthy food choices are often dooped by savvy labels and misinformation. Anything trying to sell itself as “healthy” should be left on the shelf – the ingredients in food speak for themselves; and you don’t see a “eat me, I’m healthy” sign in the produce section.

If you could cook for anyone who would it be and what would you cook?

That is a tough one. I guess I would love to cook for any client who thinks that they don’t have time to prepare quick, good-tasting, high-quality meals.

What are your top 3 favorite plant-based ingredients to use?

Coconut oil, hemp seeds and chia seeds. Coconut oil is a staple in my cooked foods and basically anything raw gets the latter two! 

Finish these sentences:

I am happiest when… I am connecting with friends or family, laughing and playing games!

I am currently listening to… because I am a group fitness instructor, my music is constantly changing – but in my car, “The Coats” Christmas CD’s (yes, I realize it’s not Thanksgiving yet but truthfully I started listening to them right after Halloween – what can I say?!).

My favorite place is… Montana or anywhere with my husband, Regan.

It makes my blood boil when… cars won’t let other cars merge during traffic. We all know what it’s like to be in the wrong lane or have to make some quick lane switches, so perhaps apply the Golden Rule when driving!

I am most grateful for… my husband. He balances me out in the best ways and keeps me grounded. I can get pretty wound up with all that’s on my plate and he reminds me to be present and enjoy every moment. And he makes every moment more fun, so it’s a win-win.

What does self-care/love mean to you?

Putting your own health and well-being above others; especially for those of us who are “givers” (myself included). Too often, since we enjoy serving others, we forget to take care of ourselves – which leads to burn-out and exhaustion! So, I try to do at least two things per day that increase my health and happiness – it could be taking the time to call a friend or taking a really long shower. For me, a lot of times it means slowing down and asking the question “what does my body need and does what I am doing serve my happiness?”

What is your favorite thing about yourself, personality and appearance?

Honestly? Ha ha – my butt!  It’s my favorite asset (pun intended) and gives me clout when speaking to clients about how importance of back body strength!

In your own words, what is a Savoury Soul?

A savoury soul for me would be liken to a bosom friend or kindred spirit. I see a savoury soul as “juicy” – full of life and exuding love to those around them.

A Savoury Soul -- Morgan Day Cecil // Romance + Adventure

Morgan Day Cecil

If you believe that life would be more fulfilling with a little more romance and adventure then you should definitely get to know Morgan Day Cecil from Romance & Adventure better. I first met Morgan back in August when she found me from a comment I had written on someone else's website. She left a comment on one of my post and told me she was in the Portland area as well and we immediately became friends.

She is one of the sweetest people I have ever met and her mission is simple yet profound. She is in the pursuit of wholeness, freedom, and living life to the fullest in mind, body, spirit and in her marriage.

I'm in awe with how much Morgan cherished and adores her family. It's palpable and she sets an incredible example of defining your own rules for happiness in life.

Read on to find out more about this incredible women and my friend... I’m on the pursuit of wholeness, freedom, and life to the full, in mind, body, and spirit, and in my marriage.

Tell me more about Romance + Adventure. What is your mission?

I used to think romance and adventure were about marrying an Italian and living on a vineyard in Italy. But shifting my perspective and becoming interested in the beauty of life no matter what my circumstances has taught me that romance is anything I do in the name of love, and adventure is anything that requires me to be brave for the sake of love.

My mission is simply to help women live in the freedom to be who they are and become who they are created to become. I show women that right from where they are at they can begin to live an exciting, meaningful, and grace-filled life. What I do helps women connect to their heart and own their desires shame-free so they can respond to the call to do something awesome with their life, talents, gifts, and dreams.

The Romance + Adventure Guide, I love it. Tell us more about what inspired you to create it and how you hope it will change the way people think about their life and priorities.

I couldn’t not create it even though looking back on that season (my daughter had just turned 1) I’m still kind of in shock I pulled it off. (All credit for time-management goes to God).

Honesty, the material mattered so much to me that I couldn’t let the excuse that I didn’t have time to create the guide stop me anymore. Yes, there is so much grace in motherhood and no mom should feel pressure to do more than what they are already doing to love on and care for their family. But I didn’t feel pressure to get it out; when I got clear that yes this was something that my heart really wanted to do, I felt joy that I was finally giving words to the ideas inside my head.

For a couple of years I had been thinking about material for the book. I really wanted to create a program that shared the lessons I’ve learned that helped me go from single mom struggling with depression and anxiety to incredibly grateful, married mom excited to say yes to each day. I created this guide to help the lost and bitter girl I was find life, and joy, and hope again in her future.

I really believe we are each meant for a unique romance and adventure and the biggest obstacle keeping us from living it is ourself. The format of the Guide is to help people get out of their own way so they can start living the life they are created to live.

So, to you, what IS Romance + Adventure in your life?

Romance and adventure right now for me is about learning how to let go of insecurities (which have kept my life safe and small) so that I can open up, embrace, and step into all that God has for me and my family.

It’s also about getting motorcycles and soon going on date-night rides with my husband. (We just go our licenses!)

And it's about learning how to be fully present with my kids and invite them into all kinds of fun. Right now we are loving our afternoon sing-a-longs to Italian nursery rhyme songs.

Can you share something others would be surprised to know about you?

Let’s see...I love the wisdom found in the Eastern spiritual traditions (my master’s degree is in Eastern Philosophy) and I am a Christ follower (some people those to things can't go together--but they can!) I would say my faith has been the most significant and transformative and romantic and adventurous journey in my life.

What else? My resume makes folks laugh. I’ve been an aerobics instructor, a flight attendant, a tutor for foster kids, a “web-master”, a pole-dancing instructor, a boudoir photographer...and I used to consider becoming a nun.

Also...I’ve been to every continent except Antartica. Every summer for ten years I spent a month with my family traveling to an exploring somewhere new in the world. I love our world...and airports.

What do you do to stay healthy? Do you have any routines or rituals?

I love my green drinks! The day just seems to go so much better when I get a good dose of chrophyll in the morning. I also practice yoga and meditation, not just on my mat, but throughout the day. Simple, intentional inhales and exhales bring me back to the grace & peace my mind often steps ahead of.

In your words, what is A Savoury Soul?

A savoury soul is a soul rich in wisdom; a soul that loves much and gives love freely; a soul that feels right at home in the company of herself as well as with others; a soul that knows it’s own joy and delights to share it with the world.

Morgan 

Morgan Day Cecil is a writer and yoga teacher in training in Portland, OR.  She and her handsome man, along with their two kids, are pursuing what it looks like to live a life of romance and adventure with grace and peace.

She is creator of The Romance & Adventure Guide and (coming in 2014) the ecourse. Currently she and her husband are creating a curriculum to help married couples live a life of true romance and meaningful adventure together.

 

A Savoury Soul -- Holly Sugrue // Videos by Holly

holly2

Friends! I'm so excited about today's Savoury Soul for many reasons but my real excitement  stems from my new interest in being in front of the camera and producing video for you all and this gem is the soul to help you understand exactly how to do so and do so well!

With years of experience  as a Cinematographer, Producer and Editor, Holly from Videos by Holly seriously knows how to produce an incredible video and I really want you to get to know her better because if you are wanting to dip your toes in the world of video blogs or creating video programs or whatever it may be, Holly is an incredible resource to learn how.

Without further ado, please meet Holly:

Tell us a little bit more about what you do. What is your mission?

I teach online entrepreneurs the skills they need to create videos they love on their own and empower them to go from, confused to confident on their video journey.

My mission is to pass along my knowledge to as many people as possible so they can create videos that inspire, form connections and share what they know with their audiences. I tell people just because you are doing it alone; it doesn’t mean you’re alone. Let me be the training wheels on your bike and help you until you are riding off into the sunset poppin’ wheelies. woo hoo!

 

What do you love most about your job? What intrigues you by it?

I love everything about my job. The thought of calling it a “job” is actually funny to me. I would do this for free. I love being challenged and with Videos by Holly I am constantly challenging myself to reach higher and further and aspiring to do more. I love the creativity that runs through every aspect of my business.  I love helping other people gain clarity when it comes to using video in their businesses and showing them just how fun it can be. I just love it all.

 

I am sure there are others, like me, who want to add video to their blog/website and are terrified of the process. What advice can you give them?

There’s a great quote that inspires me, and it says, “You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.” Everyone starts with their first video, and I can almost guarantee you that no one looks back on their first videos and says, "That was great, no need to improve anything."

Putting yourself out there can be a little scary, believe me I know. I started my video journey behind the camera. I’ve been working in NYC as a cinematographer since 2008, and in theory I knew it all. What I’m supposed to say and how I am supposed to talk, stuff about the equipment and the whole production process, but I am a real person with all of my own fears and insecurities. I learned how to push past all of that by just putting myself back in front of the camera and practicing. I created a 5 step review process and each time I would record myself I would watch it back and figure out what I was doing right and where I needed to improve. Over time,  it became easier and easier. The key here is not to be so hard on yourself. We are our own worst critics after all.

Check out Holly's video on how to overcome your fear of being on the camera here

 

What do you do to stay healthy? Any routines or rituals that help you set up for your day?

I like to run. I try to get a good run in about 3 times a week, more if I can. I am currently training for my annual mud run. This will be my 4th year participating in this type of run. I am currently counting the days down, 22 more days. Other then that I focus on making sure I eat healthy. My philosophy on staying healthy is every little bit counts. So if I can take the stairs instead of the elevator, I’ll do it. If I can eat an apple or an apple pie. I pick the apple. Every little bit counts.

 

Tell us something about yourself that people would be surprised by.

I typically only wear makeup when I’m shooting my videos. I don’t normally walk around with full makeup, eyelashes and done up hair. Most of the time I'm home alone, working in my PJ’s with no makeup on or in workout gear, sweating all over myself running down the street.

 

In your words, what is a Savoury Soul?

A soul that tastes good. No seriously, a savory soul to me is someone who takes great care of the things in life that truly matter. The things in life that build your character and align you with your true purpose.
