We’re excited to introduce Minnie from @biteswithbalance as our next Influencer inspired Recipe.

Minnie is the ‘type of person who loves to try something different’ - so you know that whatever recipe she delves into, it’ll be new, exciting and certainly something to try for yourself!

Other than food, Minnie’s passion lies in exploration and travel, she believes in the ability to treat yourself, not take yourself too seriously and enjoy the little things in life. The ability to create a balanced lifestyle that breeds happiness is Minnie’s primary objective.

To live a life that is balanced and maintainable, it’s essential to give ourselves well-deserved rest. Minnie believes in striving for success but also believes that taking a step back, appreciating yourself and your surroundings is a key component to reaching happiness. Often the ultimate accomplishment in life.

Minnie has a strong focus on fitness that assists her vision of leading a healthy and happy life, while ensuring that following each workout she digs into balanced, nutrient rich foods to nourish the body and help with recovery. 

“Life in itself is a magical journey, take it on head first, and live every moment like it’s your last! Every day is a new day, so get out of bed and make the most of it. Workout, do some yoga, read a book, study hard, work hard - do what you have to do, but also what makes you happy! Your life is precious”

Minnie hopes to motivate others to live lifestyles that are filled with happiness and optimism. Listening to your body, being active, and spending time to discover the things you love is the foundation to a fulfilling life.
