Q.Hi Madeleine Shaw! Congrats on the beautiful book! What was your favourite section to write and look back on?
The “Eat clean, Think Clean” chapter. I really wanted to get people realising it’s about self love not just quinoa.
Q.You began your healing journey with food due to stomach issues-what has been the most healing elimination and addition to your diet?
Elimination - sugar
Healing - fats
I thought fat was bad for you and when I started to eat it I felt so much better.
Q.You’re a regular yoga practitioner and now a yoga instructor too! What attracted you to yoga in the start?
I love the way it feels. I was never sporty at school and I’m not competitive so yoga is great for me I love being on my mat and seeing my strength improve.
Q.What’s been your biggest Aha! moment on your wellness journey?
That stress really causes issues. Whenever I’m stressed my digestion plays up and when I take time for me it calms down. It’s a recurrent ‘aha!’ moment where I need to relax.
Q.What are your top 3 store-cupboard/fridge essentials?
Q.The supplements & superfoods out there are pretty overwhelming, there’s always a new must-have! In you opinion what are the daily supplements & superfoods that make the difference and that you take yourself?
Turmeric tea - turmeric powder in warm water - a powerful antioxidant, anti inflammatory that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. Then Probiotics and a fish oil.

Have time for yoga
Eat three proper meals
Drink min 2 litres of water
