The Story Behind Island Life Poke

If you’ve been following us for some time you will know that both healthy and delicious food is one of our greatest passions. We are strong believers that what we put in our bodies impacts our wellbeing, not just on a physical level, but on an emotional and mental level as well - how we feel, how much energy we have, how strong and how capable we are.

Back in March 2020, when the global Coronavirus pandemic really began to escalate, we all had to adapt to a new conscious way of living when it came to health and wellbeing. Everybody had to experience ‘the new normal’ in their own way. Some took a well-deserved break and some finally found the time to do the things they always wanted to do.

For Marie and I, we spent our quarantine in Bali, which was the longest time we had spent in one place since we have known each other. It felt weird at the beginning as we were so used to being constantly active on and on the move. 

Instead of being consumed by the negativity and fear we tried to pivot and turn this new pace into a positive. We took those months as an opportunity to slow down and to work on passion projects whilst also looking for new opportunities that we would never have had time for before.
