STEPH

Can you give us a little introduction about yourself and your Instagram account? ⁣

My name is Steph Innes (AKA Stephs_sun on Instagram) and I first started up my account from a love of all things healthy living and cooking. My username was @steph2chef and I would post my crazy zany creations to the world and it was truly a place for me to be passionate and have fun.⁣

I’ve struggled with some more disordered eating patterns, health issues, fatigue etc. in the past and truly believe diet and a healthy mindset play such an important role in finding true health, vitality and wellbeing in life.. not to mention my favourite feeling HAPPY.⁣

Nowadays it’s still about the food mostly- but hidden in every post is a little sunshine to spread far and wide! ☀️⁣

Where do you currently live and what do you love about your location?

I currently live in Perth, Western Australia, literally a 2 minute walk from the beach. It’s my backyard and it’s my happy place. The ocean calms me when I’ve had a stressful day/ week, the natural elements quieten my often buzzing brain, and the people are so kind and generous around here- it’s all epic! ⁣

We know you’re passionate about fitness and food, can you tell us why it’s important to you to live a healthy lifestyle?

When I fell out of health and did minimal exercise and wasn’t conscious about a healthy wholesome diet- I experienced mammoth health problems with fatigue, hormonal issues, weight loss (mostly muscle) and further than that; my mental health took a substantial beating.⁣

It wasn’t until I found a healthy lifestyle with food, fitness, self love and acceptance.. did I notice my health was changing. I was becoming brighter, I was singing again, there was a spring in my step. All because of my lifestyle changes. The power is greatly undervalued and should be made so much more of a priority in our society today.⁣

As a Hear Us Raw ambassador, which product is your favourite and why? ⁣

UM- THE PEANUT BUTTER NUTTER! Chocolate. Peanut butter. Caramel vibes. I mean, hello. It’s the perfect food. You did it. You set the ultimate limit on raw treats! 😂😍🙌☀️⁣⁣

What is one of your favourite things about veganism/plant based living?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I know, deep in my heart, that everything I’m doing with my diet, lifestyle and mentality is for the greater good and none of the choices I’m making consciously are hurting others. Vegan/ plant-based living has been shown to provide all our nutrients we need to grow, thrive and be healthy- so what is my reason for consuming animal products? It didn’t make sense to me and veganism sits so tight with my values and belief systems. AND I FEEL FLIPPING AMAZING!! 🙌☀️🙌

Can you give us a little introduction about yourself and your Instagram?

Hi!! I’m Emily, currently studying Nutrition & Dietetics at Queensland University of Technology. I’m plant-based and to me, a plant-based diet avoids animal products and focuses on plants and whole foods, which includes vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, seeds and nuts. This lifestyle embraces plant-based whole foods for optimal nutrition and nourishment. School is always pretty hectic but I always find the time to cook most of my meals. I enjoy creating amazing and delicious recipes on my platform to show people that eating plants does not mean boring and bland food, but nutritious & nourishing for the body, and not to mention they taste exactly if not similar to non-vegan ones.

Where do you currently live and what do you love about your location? ⁣

I was born and raised in Singapore, a tiny red dot where it is summer all year round. I was born and raised in Singapore and one thing that I love about this city is that it combines Malay, Arabic, Chinese, Indian and English cultures and thanks to the rich blend of cultural legacy, the diversity of entertainments are huge in the city. Singapore is home. It is elevate my family is.

We know you’re passionate about creating healthy food, can you tell us why it’s important to you to live a healthy lifestyle? ⁣

I used to be a big meat eater until about six years ago when I started recognising the negative impact the diet had on my health and on the environment. The documentary What the Health really opened my eyes and I decided to quit eating meat and to not treat this as a diet but a lifestyle.

Having truly experienced what it feels like to go from processed to whole foods, and becoming a total health nerd, I decided to take the plunge and enrol as a Nutrition & Dietetic student. That ride has been amazing and being brought up in a family that emphasises healthy eating, it was natural that I wanted to look for a job that I had a professional and a personal interest in. I’ll be in my second year of nutrition school this year and even though school would definitely be busy, I still plan to continue @fruityemz because it is a huge part of me and I enjoy what I’m doing because to me, plant-based is not a diet, but a lifestyle!


As a Hear Us Raw ambassador, which ball is your favourite and why? ⁣

My favourite would be the count chocula (cacao + coconut) bliss ball because duhhhh chocolate is my all time favourite snack and everything that has chocolate is and will always be my favourite 

What is one of your favourite things about veganism/plant based living?

Believe it or not but I used to be a pretty chubby kid and had lots of acne. I didn’t know or rather didn’t care about nutrition and the health impacts that my unhealthy diet would cause me in future. I think it was around 16 years old when I started wanting to eat healthier and lose those extra pounds. My definition of eating healthy was cutting carbs, no fried foods and excessive exercise. It wasn’t until I found out that I had fallen into an eating disorder but I thought I was healthy. It wasn’t until I found out about plant-based and it’s benefits did I start to gain a healthy weight and feel better. All in all, eating a plant-based diet has allowed me to gain a better understanding of what foods would benefit my health and well-being in the long run without the need to restrict myself from even my favourite food because I know I can easily veganise them.

SARAH

Can you give us a little introduction about yourself and your Instagram?

Hi guys I’m Sarah (ourfamilyinsquares on the gram). I first started up my account when my daughter Avalee was born to share our adventures. She’s now almost 4 years old (time flies)! I work full time in family law and am still doing some studies while being a single mum so I’m always on the go! 

 

I used to monitor my food intake down to the single calorie and I ended up in a really unhealthy mindset, super skinny and generally just feeling gross! In the last year or so I’ve discovered a love for healthy living and exercise as it gives me the energy I need to be present with my little munchkin, and it’s just super fun to create things that taste as amazing as stars shooting out of a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow!



Where do you currently live and what do you love about your location? ⁣

I live in Perth WA, and it’s quite literally my favourite place. I’m originally from Joburg, South Africa where there are no beaches so living a 2 minute drive from the beach is the most incredible thing. There is nothing better than watching a sunset and having a swim.

We know you’re passionate about creating healthy food, can you tell us why it’s important to you to live a healthy lifestyle? ⁣

Living a healthy lifestyle is really important to me because I want Avalee (my daughter) to grow up seeing how positively it can influence your mood and behaviour. I want her to see me as a healthy influence with a bucket load of self love and acceptance of my body! ‍

 

It also helps me feel great and so much more focused at work which is super important to me too!


As a Hear Us Raw ambassador, which product is your favourite and why? ⁣

I don’t even know what product to mention here! I really do love them all. BUT I am personally probably the biggest peanut butter loving human on this earth so I’ll have to say the Peanut Butter Nutter! BUT then I also totally love mint so I’m also obsessed with the Choccy Mint Madness... basically I don’t have an answer for you #sorrynotsorry. 

What is one of your favourite things about veganism/plant based living?

Ok so for me veganism/plant based living is a new concept! I’ve not always been interested in it and if I’m completely honest it’s still a work in progress! I think it’s important to listen to your body and understand what it needs. I actually had adopted a huge misconception of plant based living, but have now realised that you really can still eat the most delish foods and make the most amazing creations! One of my fave parts has to be the colourful happiness of the dishes, so much joy!

DANICA + COREY

Can you give us a little introduction about yourself and your Instagram?

@theshneakyvegan is a page for foodies! It was established a few years ago by @coreychalmers_ & @_danicaarnold. We are a vegan couple from Perth and are obsessed with making aesthetic food. Not only for ourselves to enjoy but to give inspiration to other foodies across the world. Smoothie bowls are our absolute favourite, and we love them even more now topped with one of your delicious bliss balls. 


Where do you currently live and what do you love about your location? ⁣

We live in the northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia. This is the best place to live in Perth because we have the best beaches! We love waking up early and heading down to the beach with a coffee, jumping in the ocean and starting our day with some gratitude journaling. We love where we live.

We know you’re passionate about creating healthy food, can you tell us why it’s important to you to live a healthy lifestyle? ⁣

Food is the kick-start required for a healthy lifestyle. We eat a wholesome, plant-based diet to nourish our bodies, mind and soul. We ensure that we get all the nutrients we need to fuel our body, exercise daily and mediate to slow our bodies down from the chaotic lives that we live. We love the healthy lifestyle that we live and we aspire to pass on our knowledge through @theshneakyvegan 


As a Hear Us Raw ambassador, which product is your favourite and why? ⁣

We love all the @hearusraw products because of the love you guys put into making them. It’s such a tough decision, but if we had to choose one we would go for the little mermaid bliss ball. The colour is so pretty and it tastes amazing! 

What is one of your favourite things about veganism/plant based living?

It’s difficult to narrow it down to just one thing, so we are going to give you our two of our favourite things about vegan/plant based living ☺ 

  1. Eating in abundance
    We love to eat! And it makes us feel great knowing that when we eat we are fuelling our bodies with wholesome foods.  

     

  2. Compassionate and conscious decision making!
    We believe that every time we put something into our mouths, we are making a conscious decision to be kind and caring for other beings inhibiting this planet.
