This episode is so heart warming and extremely inspirational!

005 – Sustainable Food, Health and Fitness with Elise Carver

In this episode I am joined by Elise Carver (@littlebantamsurftrainer) as we discuss sustainable living, fitness and food. An incredible insight that I believe will change the way we think about our health and fitness forever. In this episode we also touch on social media, growing a business through Instagram, mental health, living with Gastritis and fueling and moving your body.

Welcome back to the Plant Based Body Podcast!

In this episode I am joined by Elise Carver (@littlebantamsurftrainer) of Surf Style Training. This episode is jam packed with amazing goodies that I know you guys will love!

Today we talk:

  • her journey
  • fitness
  • social media
  • mental health
  • sustainability
  • fueling your body for optimisation
  • the gut and Gastritis

We discuss Elises early life, moving from place to place and the instability when she was growing up and the rocky relationship she has with her mother and her step father. She explains the work she has had to do to help her over come these issues and ultimately overcome a lot of her childhood trauma.

Elise found home within the Surf Coast, where she lives a sustainable lifestyle with her husband. Elise works as a trainer and online coach, provides active stretching and training tips to her many Instagram followers and is soon to be a published Author.

When ‘sustainability’ is the topic of conversation, we normally think of minimal waste living. But in this episode we talk about sustainable fitness; is your fitness routine a long term commitment or a short term quick fix that will burn you out? What about food? Are you dieting and doing crazy challenges that are unsustainable in the long run or are you eating to fuel your body best?

Elise shares amazing insights for those who have never heard of sustainability before and quick and easy tips that we can use to implement sustainability into our lives today.

I hope you have your pen ready because you are about to learn an abundance of knowledge that will help to change your life forever!
