I’ve been hanging out to bring you this one! Lisa Corduff is one truly amazing woman and is killing it in the health coaching scene right now! She’s helped so many women change their diets and lives, one small step at a time. I have so much love for this woman!
Wholefoods blogger and mum of three kids, Lisa is passionate about connecting real people with the real food message. Nothing fancy, no frills, just the information and inspiration people need to make lasting change.
Her recent program “Small Steps to Wholefoods” was a huuuuge success, and I was super stoked to be a part of it, alongside some serious industry heavyweights who I look up to, including Jude Blereau, Nat Kringoudis, Quirky Jo Whitton, Bianca Slade and Christine Cronau. Yep – she brought out all the big guns for this program! Lisa interviewed me via Skype and we talked about all things gluten free and gut health.
I also jumped into the Small Steps Facebook group at regular intervals to answer questions about gluten free eating, and let me tell you, the buzz in there was amazing! So many women taking action, one small step at a time, towards a healthier lifestyle for both themselves and their families, and supporting each other in the process.
And guess what? She’s doing it all again in the New Year with Small Steps to Wholefoods Round 2, and I have a special offer to tell you about.
But first, here’s my Shiny Healthy Sisters interview with Lisa, so that you can get to know her better:
Whereabouts do you live?
Why did you start this business?
For me, the journey towards whole foods eating has been slow (and continuing!). I haven’t changed everything yet, I’m taking lots of small steps and being kind to myself on the journey. I have learnt from a lot of amazing people (like you!) about real food and the benefits of eating it and I wanted to share it in a new way with people. My program doesn’t promise to change peoples lives in 8-weeks – I hate that stuff!
Tell me a little about what you do.
I am the mum of three kids, four and under. That’s about what I do! ha! I also run a FB page and website and have just recently turned this into a business by launching an online program called Small Steps to Wholefoods.
What does a typical day at work look like?
Be woken up by the kids, get everyone fed, dressed and out the door for an activity, get the baby off for a morning sleep, get everyone lunch and then into bed for an arvo nap – attempt to do work at this point – then it’s afternoon activities and dinner and baths and bed. Once that’s all done I work!
What exciting things are in store for your biz?
The amount of plans I have vs. the amount of time I have to achieve them is one of the most frustrating things in my life!! The thing I am most excited about next year will be launching a few speaking events. I am also doing a complete rebrand and website build – soooo exciting!
What’s your favourite healthy gluten free treat?
Ooooh I love my not-to-sweet choc almond bliss balls!
Are you a juice or a smoothie girl? Favourite concoction?
BOTH! When I am really busy or stressed I juice like a madwoman – it’s the best. But most days I smoothie and my husband loves it – I actually created a process for the perfect (in my opinion!) green smoothie here.
How do you stay fit, happy and healthy?
Ahhhh fitness – this is a perpetual challenge for me. I love walking and wish I could get a bit of pace up, but with little people at my ankles that is kind of hard. I plan on getting back into hot yoga once I’ve finished breastfeeding.
Happiness is easy – I feel grateful and optimistic a lot of the time and as long as I’ve had enough sleep I feel pretty good! My children make me laugh and fill my cup and my husband is the person who can make me happiest – even after ten years together.
Health to me is feeling bright and energised and I maintain this by prioritising sleep and good food. Once I get out of balance then everything around me falls apart so I need to stay well. Launching a business and being a mum has forced me into a practice of self-care!
Favourite healthy place to eat out?
Who eats out!?!?
What advice do you have for anyone just starting out on a healthy diet?
Well, my mantra is ‘small steps’. Don’t beat yourself up when you revert to old habits because it’s BLOODY HARD to change those habits. Choose something you know you really want to change – whether it be breakfast or perhaps that after dinner nibble. Really have a think about what you’d prefer to eat or drink, get a few options lined up and then experiment! See how they make you feel and if it’s GOOD then brilliant and if not, then keep trying.
