In this week’s episode, Josh is talking to Bree Pagonis who was a Winner in the 2021 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards for Victoria and her business partner, Alicia Holmquest.
Bree & Alicia are creating an accessible platform that enhances food experiences. They have both co-founded WIRL, a social enterprise that helps women create time, energy and brain space by re-teaching them how to eat. The aim is for users to worry less about food, health and their bodies, and spend more time doing things they love.
WIRL focuses on intuitive eating that has positive physical and mental health outcomes. As a social enterprise, a portion of sales go to The Hunger Project Australia, a not-for-profit committed to ending global hunger by 2030. Bree and Alicia have a Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics.
In this episode:
- We hear how passionate both Bree and Alicia are to help people work on changing their individual behaviours and goals.
- And we learn we shouldn’t be concerned with calorie counting, restrictions or weight loss. With help from WIRL we can achieve better physical & mental health outcomes
- Look out for the new App coming soon. Follow on Insta to keep informed.
