I really love good food and exercise—but I don’t want it to take over my life. I realise that for the busy mum there are more important things than exercise and eating healthy—and so my passion is for creating content aimed at improving and maintaining health without extremes or obsession. Keeping everything in balance is important to me, as I am sure it is important to you.
I want to help you to see that:
1. You can eat well without starvation,
2. You don't have to spend your lifetime preparing food in the kitchen,
3. Healthy food can be delicious, and
4. You can be healthy and still enjoy your favourite foods once in a while.
Life isn’t supposed to be stressful, restrictive, or joyless—and that includes our journey to health. By making a few small adjustments to our pantry, fridge, schedule, and mindset, eating well is easy and can become something we simply do automatically.
Here's to a healthier, happier life with everything in balance!
Yours in Health and Fitness,
Chantelle Marie Swayne

My love of healthy food and fitness started almost 10 years ago when I was 18. I had begun working out at a woman’s gym for the first time in my life. Having always had struggles with my weight, I had never made the link between the quality of the food I ate and my health.
After a month of working out diligently, I walked in and asked why I hadn’t lost weight – while holding a king-sized Snickers bar. Would you believe it? I was literally that ignorant when it came to my health. I learnt that day that it mattered what I put in my mouth, and decided to pursue health and fitness as a career.
Since I began in Health and Fitness, I have worked for the better part of ten years in the fitness industry, helping 100’s of women (and a few men) along on their journey to better health. Since starting my own family (and encountering all the challenges of pregnancy and early postpartum for myself), I've become particularly passionate about helping mums and their families.
I have learnt (and continue to learn) so much about the body and how to fuel it - and I just love to share what I have learnt with others!
