YUM, loving this little can of Australian Honey goodness with Ginseng and Guarana, get buzzed!! It’s SO Good to know it is all natural, no taurine and no processed sugar or excessive salt, just 100% Australian honey!! A healthy soft drink alternative…
Bee Firm NRG has no processed sugar, no added caffeine and no taurine, all ingredients in the major energy drinks on the market with questionable health benefits. Bee Firm NRG instead have released their drink with Australian Honey for natural sweetness and flavour, Guarana with natural caffeine and Ginseng for its flavour and vitality properties.
Honey is a true Super food and one of my favorite natural sweeteners. It’s packed with enzymes, antioxidants, iron, zinc, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, vitamin B6, riboflavin and niacin. Together, these essential nutrients help to neutralize free radicals while promoting the growth of healthy bacteria in the digestive tract.
Comparisons against the 5 most available drinks showed that Bee Firm NRG drink had the lowest levels of sugar, sodium and calories, all things that consumers are concerned about in their daily diet.
Having sugary foods and drinks can cause a spike in your blood glucose levels. In response, our bodies secrete insulin and insulin-like growth factor (IGF). These two substances promote cell growth and inflammation. And when you have too much of them, they can pave the way for the development of cancer.
And while the consumption of refined sugar is on the rise, so are artificial sweeteners. Artificial sweeteners like aspartame, sucralose (Splenda), ACE K and saccharin have been debated for years in regard to their damaging side effects.
Honey is a natural sweetener that is lower on the glycemic index than refined white sugar. This sweetener is healthier for you than refined sugar, and taste divine
Honey is the original natural sweetener, this is made by bees from flower nectars. The most beautiful natural sweetener on earth!!!
Drink this as a healthy energy soft drink! YUM!

I had a day of indulgence with divine beautiful treatments at my favourite Beauty Spa Space http://@thebeautyscenefreshwater
My new obsession is the INFRARED SAUNA! In 30 mins you burn 1,000 CALORIES!!! This heat has the ability to penetrate your skin deep into the body’s tissue to help your body repair and eliminate toxic build up throughout the skin. Detoxification is 7 to 10 times greater than a regular sauna. This is because the body actually sweats more at infrared temperatures, which are 60 to 80% lower than conventional saunas. Your core temperature is raised slowly and a deep, purifying sweat is induced. It allows the skin to detoxify toxins, including heavy metals, more effectively, essentially taking pressure off the internal detoxification organs. Hello Beauty glow!
So, after a facial it is time to bask under the divine skin purifying Omnilux light, which feels like lying out under a Mediterranean sun, only minus the damage. Instead, it stimulated the collagen beneath my skin and left my dermis feeling energised and gleaming with beauty glow and health. It is SO divine. My favourite beauty glow secret treatment for Instantaneous results!!!
I also do believe the secret to good skin is all about good nutrition and consuming certain foods (NO SUGAR and lots of healthy fats and alkaline vegetables) and drinking lots of water and keep sugar intake to a minimum!!! However a tweak that is a little more invasive to repair sun damage and acne scars is majic!!!
If your body isn’t hydrated how do you expect your skin to be? If you’re one of those people that find it exceptionally difficult to consume at least 2L of water a day, try drinking warm water with ginger or lemon. It adds some flavor, aids digestion and metabolism!
Don’t even get me started on sugar! Studies have proven that excess sugar consumption can speed the skin’s natural ageing process known as GLYCATION. Basically the sugar in your bloodstream attaches to proteins to form harmful new molecules called Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs for short – hello clearly a message in that name). The more sugar you eat the more AGEs you develop, the more AGEs you develop the more you… AGE and the more elastin, collagen and protein fibre is damaged in the process!!!
Another factor to take into account are food intolerances, they cause inflammation in the gut.
The gut contributes to 70% of our immune system, and when it is compromised, a whole host of symptoms can present themselves, including acne, skin rashes and even sinus problems.
Dairy is a common trigger, apparently, as many people have difficulty digesting it.
Rice and almond milk is a better alternative to milk…
Take care of your skin, always wear Sunblock SPF 30+50+ I’m having consistent treatments with Elissa to repair years of sun damage, and to purify my skin and prevent ageing.
At the most simple level I think we need to work on the self. To smile at somebody and stop judging. Start appreciating yourself, and loving yourself, and realising what you put into your body and onto your skin, and how you are going to move it, and look after it, love and appreciate and take care of it.

READ MY INTERVIEW WITH NEW YORK MODEL IVA http://www.ivaseye.com
NUTRITIONIST AND MODEL BONNEE FAHLSTROM ON HEALTH AND SAVING OUR BEES
Nutritionist, model, and activist Bonnee Fahlstrom is one inspiring lady.
Along with having a booming holistic nutrition business she juggles a modeling career as well as being heavily involved in activism, specifically pertaining to the preservation of bees.
Read on to get to know Bonnee, as well as find out how you too can help the bees!
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
Sydney’s Northern Beaches I grew up in Palm Beach.
WHAT’S THE FIRST THING YOU DO WHEN YOU WAKE UP?
Before I leave home, one of the first things I always do is drink warm water and lemon with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to alkalise my body and cleanse my blood, kidneys and liver.
WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY OF MEALS FOR YOU?
At home, I don’t eat meat, seafood, dairy eggs or coffee. In general, I try to avoid processed packaged foods containing sugar and wheat.
I have an abundance of fruit first thing in the morning. I love avocado on gluten free toast with lemon… Then greens and plant protein for lunch, usually a veggie juice with beetroot, carrot, celery, ginger, spinach and lemon.
For dinner, plant protein or roasted veggies or soup. I drink 3-4 Litres of water per day. Snacks include Blueberries, brazil nuts, almonds, medjool dates or Goji berries. I also love an apple with some almond butter.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR GROCERY STORE STAPLES?
Bananas, avocados, nuts and seeds, raspberries, coconut water, dandelion, gluten free bread, rice milk, medjool dates, baby spinach, celery and lemons.
WHAT’S YOUR WORKOUT ROUTINE LIKE?
I love to Run, do Ballet/Pilates and Yoga, I exercise every day and when I am eating beautiful food no processed foods, swimming in the ocean and getting lots of vitamin D, my emotional state feels really clear.
WHAT IS YOUR DIET PHILOSOPHY?
To help you live your healthiest and most beautiful life. To trust life. I’ve always been guided by own intuition.
I haven’t taken one sick day in my whole career. I obviously have a good immune system and there are some days when I haven’t felt well but I’ve never felt so unwell that I couldn’t work. Ultimately, I want others to have compassion for all living beings and feel beautiful inside and out. I am dedicated to encouraging others with whole food recipes, nutrition and education on the science within your body!
WHAT IS ONE THING EVERYONE SHOULD BE DOING EVERY DAY FOR THEIR HEALTH?
Give up Coffee, it is extremely acid forming in the body. We want to choose foods that will help us raise the alkalinity of our blood and our bodies. Drinking coffee long term taxers our liver, a major fat burning and detoxifying organ. Try to wean off coffee or limit your consumption.
My other beauty secret is drink lots of pure water! Up to 4 Litres per day. Beauty starts from the inside. Jump in the ocean too, nothing beats the salt on your skin and just feeling cleansed.
You will always look your best if you are Healthy and Happy.
WHAT ARE SOME WAYS THAT YOU USE MODELING AS A PLATFORM?
I’m incredibly sensitive to other people’s feelings so when I feel other people’s sadness, that makes me sad. I think that empathy is a noble cause. I take criticism and judgement on and make it a positive energy to gives me strength. I use modeling as a platform for my business to be an active role model to educate others on the Bees, on Nutrition, and to promote a healthy and happy lifestyle.
Have you ever dealt with body image issues in the industry? If so, how do you push past that, and if not, how do you stay in a balanced state of mind?
You do have to be quite judicious about what you promote through your influencing. Because of the way it gets digested by the media and the conversation can be hijacked. The issues have to remain the most important element. I am an incredibly private person. I don’t need the accolade to flaunt my personal life on social media. I only educate, inspire and promote products and brands that align with my belief system.
WHAT ARE SOME PROJECTS YOU’RE CURRENTLY EXCITED ABOUT?
I am involved in the Sydney Breast Cancer Annual Lunch this year.
I am also collaborating with really inspirational like-minded businesses at the moment.
One being the first Australian Soft drink company that is naturally sugar free. It is called NEXBA.
CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE MOVEMENT “SAVE THE BEES”?
If there was anything that I felt that I could do that would really contribute to what I think is one of the most important issues in human history is to Save Bees and educate people on how incredible they are. I’m hopeful that we’ll evolve as a species. But there is something about human nature that is very destructive.
Bees are my favourite animal. There’s this brilliant documentary called Queen of the Sun: What Are the Bees Telling Us? I think it so crucial for people to be educated about bees—They pollinate almost all the food we eat. They are sooo incredibly amazing!
Bees are so essential to the continuing health of our beautiful planet and are irreplaceable contributors to the life cycle of flowering plants, making it possible for them to provide us with the nutritious fruits we eat, and oxygen we breathe. You have a Bee to thank for every one in three bites of food you eat. A single bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers each day!
HOW CAN WE HELP?
Bees are crucial to our existence, we must work hard to protect and preserve them. This is an endeavor that will require the participation of all the worlds 7.1 billion inhabitants. When it comes to the survival of the planet, we cannot be ignorant or apathetic.
These foods are dependent upon bees to pollinate and so, while bees are making delicious honey with all its health benefits, they are also helping the whole world:
- apples, peaches, pears
- blueberry, raspberry, blackberry
- almonds, Brazil nuts
- pumpkins – all squashes
Ways to Save the Bees
- Stop using insecticides.
Simple really…just do it.
- Avoid seeds coated with insecticides.
You may not know it, but many seeds are now coated with clothianidin.
- Read labels on garden compost.
Beware hidden killers. Some garden composts contain imidacloprid – a deadly insecticide disguised as “vine weevil protection.”
- Plant bee-friendly plants.
Buy wildflower seeds from seed merchants, and sow in any spare patch of ground.
- Create natural habitat gardens.
Let some space in your garden go wild. It will be a safe haven for bees and other insects.
- Become a beekeeper.
Beekeeping is a most enjoyable, fascinating and interesting hobby and you get to eat your own honey! If this is too much, consider offering space in your garden to local beekeepers.
- Buy local honey.
Support your local beekeepers.
