Hey guys! Here is another giveaway for you! This time from the lovely Lola Berry, plus we have a Q&A with Lola as well! 

Who is Lola Berry?

Lola Berry is a passionate, energetic and enthusiastic Aussie Nutritionist. She aims to inspire the world to view health differently and is a regular guest on Australian day time tv.

Lola has recently launched her new book Inspiring Ingredients and thanks to they are giving my readers a chance to win a copy!

Lola Berry’s new book Inspiring Ingredients is more than just a recipe book. It contains heaps of tips and tricks to help you live a healthy and happy life.  Though talking of food, there are quite a few recipes (more than 30) in the book and all are whole food, nutrient dense and are very delicious recipes! My favourite recipe in Lola’s book has to be the Raw Fudge Balls, which is also listed on Lola’s website. Though it’s hard to say just one favourite recipe. Inspiring Ingredients is definitely health food lover approved!

Wanna know more about Lola? Have a read of the Q&A below:

Health Food Lover (HFL): For new readers, what can they expect from your new book, Inspiring Ingredients?

Lola Berry (LB): This book is all about inspiring people to live a healthier life and to love what they eat. Nutrition and health can be boring so I am to make it as interesting and fun as possible! Expect to find in the book energy boosters, weight loss tips, stress and sleep info plus over 30 recipes. It’s all about putting the ‘heart’ back into what you eat!

HFL: How do keep your diet “yummo” but still healthy?

LB: Mix it up, try friends recipes and discover new tastes. Try to find produce at local farmers markets and chatting to the farmers to get their secret recipes!  80/20:  80% of the time eat nutrient dense food, 20% of the time treat yourself!!

HFL: How do you make time to include healthy food in your lifestyle?

LB: Preparation is a big player when it comes to eating well… shop up beforehand to save you getting things on the go. Not only is this cheaper but will make you eat more nutrient dense foods. Check out the website for updated recipes!

HFL: Who do you look to for food and health inspiration?

LB: Stephanie Alexander, Jamie Oliver, my parents, farmers at local markets and my mates – nothing excites me more than getting a hold of a food or meal I’ve never tried before!!

HFL:What are your “favo” recipes from your book?

LB: Quinoa Salad and the Banana Buckwheat Pancakes… but it changes every month!

Thanks Lola!

Lola also has a webseries which has lots of healthy tips and tricks to get you started on a healthier lifestyle which you can view on her video page.

She’s so cute! I really want to try those raw fudge balls!

I am inspired daily to eat better for my future kids. I remember being unhealthy and overweight, and thought, I don’t want to be the mom who isn’t there.

What a fun giveaway!


Michelle December 7, 2010 at 4:30 am

Great answer Stephanie! Thats a great motivation for healthier eating! Thanks for entering and good luck!

Hi Michelle
My inspiration to live a healthier lifestyle comes from my husband. He was diagnosed as a Type 2 diabetic a few years back and had kept things ‘under control’ with diet and pills. His sugar levels have become raised and at his last checkup was told he was heading towards insulin if he doesn’t turn things around.


Nicola December 8, 2010 at 10:17 am

I have an Australian friend who raves about Lola – and I have to agree she is inspiring – she makes eating healthily fun and simple, rather than a boring chore and telling us that chewing on a dry rice cake will make our lives better!


Tarah Dower December 9, 2010 at 2:29 am

My backyard inspires me. I don’t have lots of room but I do have a humble vegie patch and herb garden growing and have converted our old cubby house into a chicken coop for our little chickens! Motherhood is a massive inspiration too!!! As a mother of young 2 girls I want to model a healthy lifestyle as our children are the future.


Marcia December 9, 2010 at 5:49 am

Watching family members suffer with illnesses that can be avoided inspires me everyday to exercise and live by Lola’s 80 / 20 rule!


Sami C December 9, 2010 at 7:39 am

Hey Michelle!!
Am excited about this give away :):):):):)

So I think what inspires me the most is just being able to grow fruits/veggies/herbs myself and then cooking with them. There’s just something so natural and creative about it as opposed to just buying packets of whatever from the shops.
Also, knowing that what I eat and do now will affect me in years to come is another good motivator :)


Deb December 12, 2010 at 9:22 am

I’ve ‘liked’ Lola Berry on Facebook.


Deb December 12, 2010 at 9:23 am

I’ve also added Health Food Lover to Facebook.


Deb December 12, 2010 at 9:28 am

I am subscribed to Health Food Lover email updates.

Thank you for referring another Australian real foodie writer.
