My Story ..

by COLETTE PIENAAR

My name is Colette Pienaar, I am the creator of The GODDESS Academy, a place where highly motivated women can meet, share ideas, grow and feel heard and supported. I have designed programs to specifically to help women, experiencing changes in their bodies, navigating the hormonal flux we all face at a certain point in our lives, take control and build a strong, sculpted figure and a mindset that shapes their world.

My programs teach women how to take control of the little things that make all the difference to how they look and feel and that their personal priority in life is critical to their fulfilment and happiness.

We all go through change and experience challenges in life, we face curveballs every day and yet when it comes to our weight and wellness we struggle. Why is that?

As someone who has experienced all of the above, I understand how hard it is to take the time to take care of me.

As a result I have done my best to help others take the little steps that add up to feeling and looking better, to finding the balance we all strive for. I believe that life is far too short to be anything but happy and that the key to achieving this is in choosing to put healthy, clean food into our mouths to nourish and support the body, to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed and full of energy! Once this base has been established it's easier to step up in life and take positive steps every day. The principles I teach show how simple it is to be healthy and love your food, to get your weight under control and have loads of fun doing just that!

This blog has evolved over the last 15 years in an effort to provide my clients with healthy recipes that will keep their taste buds happy and help them stick to my program guidelines, something I am passionate about and love doing. It is a reflection of my journey to wellness and in it, I share my recipe ideas and the foodie discoveries I find inspiring, nutritious and delicious.

The recipes featured here are predominantly plant-based, vegetarian/vegan because this is the way I eat, a lifestyle choice that I believe has had a fundamental impact on my health and wellbeing.

You'll find more information about the GODDESS Academy right here and how to join our BE Strong & Sculpted Group on Facebook - find out how my participants make progress every day, taking control of their lives one step at a time, to create opportunities every day to live beyond the ordinary!

I hope I am able to inspire you to try something new.
