With so many brands and experts out there, it can be hard to know who to trust.
Bibi Lafleur owns a health food store - Bulk Whole Foods, but she doesn't confess to be perfect. In fact her family gets pizza once a week and she has even bought shoestring fries from the supermarket before! But for Bibi, it's about balance and the 80/20 rule. 80% of the time her and her family eat healthy whole foods while 20% of the time they enjoy the occasional treat.
Bibi is a mum of 3 girls and totally gets the juggle of healthy lifestyle, business person, mum and everything in between. We talked about business, being a mum and health. You can listen to our whole conversation here.
A realistic view on health.
Bibi and I talk about how being healthy is about balance and priorities. Like when she bought shoestring fries and spent the evening with her family instead of spending hours in the kitchen making chips from scratch. We talked about how sometimes choices have to be made between being perfect and your sanity.
Hands off parenting.
As a mum of 3 girls, Bibi reflects on how much her parenting style has changed from being so focused on the "shoulds" of parenting to now being more relaxed with her youngest. As a mum of 2 young girls myself, it was nice to hear about how her less is more style with her 4 year old has resulted in a confident young girl who is not afraid to make mistakes.
Trust my intuition.
Bibi and I talked about how important rhythm and intuition are in both business and health. Bibi has found listening to your body and the feeling you get in your gut, is the best indicator of whether you are making the right decisions whether it be in diet or business.
Connecting with like minded people.
In running a health food store, Bibi has noticed how isolating it can be to be a mum and/or a health food advocate. She is on a mission, like me, to help connect like minded people together to share information.
