My parents have been my inspiration throughout my life, each of them for different reasons…
My father died when I was 19 from lung cancer and I grew up feeling that he was destroying his life with smoking and an unhealthy life in general. My mother, on the other hand, whilst having gone through breast cancer treatment herself, has always been very aware of the power of nutrition, has always taken care of her health… She made nutritious concoctions using plants and herbs, sought after ancient health recipes, even drank raw quail eggs daily to recover after her breast cancer treatment (I only discovered as an adult that they are full of anti-inflammatory Omega 3 fats), amongst other things. I am talking Bosnia & Herzegovina, in 1970s… Not modern Britain… 🙂
My mother was a woman well ahead of her time, she has never finished school, but knew the relationship between our health and how well we feed our bodies. In February 2016 she celebrated her 76th birthday and is looking amazing for her age. She remains my inspiration and a validation that nutrition and health matter and she is and has always been my biggest supporter in the message of health I wish to bring to the world. She is my rock and so are a few other people in my life, but this is for her. She has supported me in my business that has been my passion now for 12 years and has been the reason why I could go to company events abroad, such as the one in Prague I just came back from as well as small meetings over many weekends.
Here is to you, mum, who looks fantastic for someone at 77 as she really knows how to take care of herself, which is what I get from her too. Here we are sharing our Formula 1 healthy breakfast.
Thank you for everything!
