We are Showcasing our Products at the Next Conscious Club: 17th September

Becca Crawford

We are excited to have been asked to showcase our products at the next Conscious Club in Paddington next week on Thursday 17th September. My staff and I will be there offering FREE SAMPLES of our activated nuts, date coconut balls, power bars and sokolata (our signature maple-sweetened raw dark chocolate).  Products will also be available for purchase (cash or card).


I have been honoured to have been going to the Conscious Club since its conception a few years ago.  Founded by meditation teachers Gary Gorrow and Tim Brown, the not-for-profit organisation was founded with a collective mission to inspire people to do good for themselves, each other and the planet. This is achieved through connecting like-minded people and facilitating regular, inspiring, uplifting events, which artfully weave together socially-minded speakers, musicians and films.

In my teens and twenties I went out clubbing and drinking to become ‘unconscious’ and now I feel grateful that places like the Conscious Club exist where people can go out to become more conscious. And what a relief to not wake up with a hangover ;-)   The Conscious Club is becoming an international phenomena opening up in venues around Australia and the world. Just when you think you are too small to make a difference…

The format of the Conscious Club is typically is something along the lines of an internationally recognised keynote speaker, a 20 minute group meditation, entertainment by a local band or artist, a sometimes an inspirational thought-provoking short documentary film followed by local artisans showcasing their products. There is opportunity to connect with new people, try local products, chat over a cup of moksha ayurvedic teas and feed your soul. I always walk away feeling full to the brim with inspiration, new learnings, and new friends.

Next week the keynote speaker is Dr Libby Weaver who will talk about her approach to optimum health and wellbeing. 

With a PHD in biochemistry and 17 years clinical experience Dr Libby will explain how the biochemical, nutritional and emotional aspects of health must be in balance to achieve the most obvious marker for our wellbeing - our vitality!

Australian singer and songwriter and Aria award winner Wes Carr will also be there to sing his music.

what's happening in the wholefoods community....


There seems to be a lot of movement at the station so I thought I'd give you all a quick heads up summary of some of the major events in the recent past, present and near future: 1. About Life  opened a new store at 1 Kiaora Lane Double Bay today 5 June 2014. Check out their FB page here.

IMG_90792. BU Organics (Ebley street, Bondi Junction) closed down the Suveran cafe on Oxford St (opposite About Life) but opened up a second store- located 102 Campbell Parade Bondi Beach right in the thick of the tourist epicentre of Australia. Check out their FB page here.

3. Vivid Sydney light festival has some organic wholefood options including Agape food truck outside the Opera House forecourt. I enjoyed the Pulled wagyu beef spelt rollers from there. Other food truck options include EatArt Truck at Hickson Rd and Veggie Patch Van, Hickson Road near the Harbour Bridge. Spectacular lights, stunning Sydney harbour plus wholefood options = great night out for young and old and everyone in between. From 6pm daily until 9 June. Check out this blog post by PaleoFoodies for more info.

4. Omeio- a new organic online wholefoods retailer is about to launch in the near future. Stay tuned on this one. Check out their website or FB page for more information. They will be stocking premium-quality Australian and imported wholefoods including my activated nuts and OVViO teas and spices.

IMG_8604IMG_86055. Anthia Koullouros, natropath, herbalist and owner of OVViO Organic Health & Lifestyle Store in Paddington has published her cook book "I Am Food" in hard cover form. This can be purchased here.

6. Sarah Ballantyne who lives in the USA (aka the Paleo Mom) published her book "The Paleo Approach" dealing with reversing auto-immunity. A very scientific in-depth approach to a complex (and ever-growing) issue. Check it out here. Her FB posts are great too.

7. The Conscious Club's next event is on 18th June and looks to be pretty awesome featuring an internationally acclaimed documentary The Human Experiment narrated by Oscar winner Sean Penn, and produced by Emmy awarded journalists Dana Nachman & Don Hardy. Tickets can be purchased here. Looking forward to this one!

8. PaleoFoodies is hosting an exclusive food evening at $80/head on 25th June 6:30-8:30pm at Tatler Sydney, Darlinghurst. It is a showcase of primally-inspired cuisine and will be hosted by Luke Hines and Scott Gooding, authors of Clean Living and Clean Living Cookbook. Check it out here to purchase tickets. I'll be there!

IMG_91349.  Mike Campbell has published his book "Unleash your Alpha" aimed at the modern man. A manual on how to "eat like a man, train like a beast, operate like a gentleman and become a legend."  Check out this post on him and his book by PaleoFoodies here. I met with him recently for coffee and an informal chat about his book and work as a PT. A really lovely guy and an inspiration and role model for blokes being the best they can be. You can follow his posts here.

Glad to see that the demand for clean, properly sourced and prepared food (together with an appreciation of a broader holistic lifestyle) is gaining momentum.
