JJ: What inspired you to start cooking healthy and writing about it?
SJW: Looking like Quasimodo. And feeling like a rescue dog.
I used to think that only boring people had time to cook. Turns out, smarter people make time to cook.
JJ: What’s your beauty philosophy?
SJW: Health is beauty.
If someone takes care of themselves, it shows in their eyes, their aura and their skin. Knowing that we absorb 70% of what we put on our skin, it’s easy enough to make the right decisions.
Luckily, Beauty Heroes does the research, so we don’t have to! I really mean that. I’m a working mum with two little boys, so I barely have time to shower let alone research products lining my local stores. Beauty Heroes is my Mecca.
