The online world is a wealth of information on wellbeing, health and fitness, and there are some great local bloggers and social media motivators who have sprung up from New Zealand.
Here are my top picks of New Zealand’s healthy lifestyle blogs and online experts (apart from yours truly, of course!) who will help you make positive lifestyle changes, provide motivation and inspire you…
With a passion for plant-powered recipes and sustainable living, Hannah Horton has fashioned a beautifully aspirational wholefoods blog with a refreshingly non-esoteric approach to eating.
Hannah’s blog reads, ‘This is a no B-S blog about wholefoods, wholesome products and living life to the fullest. I’m no nutritionist or scientist, but I love to share how I blend delicious green smoothies, prepare real food that tastes and feels amazing, and formulate home and beauty products that are kind to you and yours, the planet, animals and your wallet.’
