AN EAT MINUTE. TALINE GABRIELIAN (HIPPIE LANE)

This week, we speak with Taline Gabrielian of Hippie Lane, who share with us her love of food, family & style, and how her sweet tooth is the diving force behind the creation of some of our most favourite tasty dessert recipies.


WELLBEING TO YOU SUMMED UP...
Wellbeing to me is a healthy mind, body and spirit, a general feeling about how one feels about themselves and their life.

WHAT'S YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE…
Hot chips!

WHAT DOES YOUR FITNESS ROUTINE LOOK LIKE…
Currently it’s a combination of high intensity workouts 4 days a week, Interval running, Pilates and Power Walks.

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO EAT WELL WHEN YOU'RE HAVING 'ONE OF THOSE DAYS'…
I look ahead and focus on how I’m going to feel after the meal. This is the one thing that consistently motivates me to keep on keeping on with healthy meals.

FAVOURITE FOOD/ RECIPE…
Right now it’s the app’s Cacao and Macadamia breakfast clusters with banana and rice milk. Think healthy coco pops – amazing.

WHAT IS YOUR PANTRY NEVER WITHOUT...
Coconut oil, cacao powder, chia seeds, quinoa.

YOUR SECRET TO MAINTAINING A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE...
I look at the big picture which simply comes down to what do I want in life. Ultimately, I want to feel strong mentally and physically, I want to be confident in my thoughts and in my body and I want to raise healthy children.

There are no shortcuts to achieve it, it just comes down to a true commitment to a lifestyle that supports this vision.

MY SIGNATURE MEAL IS...
At the moment, it’s baked quinoa felafel with hummus, kim chi, and fresh herb and avo salad. The best!

ANY ADVICE/ MOTIVATION FOR PEOPLE TRYING TO KICK-START A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE…
To start, I’d aim to get sweaty at least 3-4 times a week. Even if it’s just 15 mins a day of interval running / walking, and some light stretching, that’s a great start. I’d then look at adding some strengthening exercises.

Diet is everything when it comes to a healthy lifestyle. To begin, I’d aim to reduce the amount of packet food you consume, eat less sugar and buy more fresh green produce. Be sure to plan your meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) on Sunday night so you’re set for the week. The secret to healthy eating is in planning and organisation! It’ll soon become a habit.
