    Chelsea Eats

    Chelsea Eats

    Did you know that in all of my 10 year wellness journey, I felt unhealthiest while opening my ultra healthy organic cafe?

    I’m not alone in this.

    Shirin Kouros of The Good Life told me that during the launch of her first Californian-style 'feel good' eatery (around the corner from us in Chelsea), she too suffered from extreme fatigue, that caused her to have crazy facial breakouts, gave her a dry mouth, brittle nails and stomach inflammation resulting in weight gain and digestive issues.

    Although our diets are very different, we both have a lot in common when it comes to the lessons we’ve learned during these stressful times, especially what not to do the second and third time around (and even more for Shirin as she plans to open their 5th location). 

    We also have a lot in common when it comes to the evolving diets of the men we married, our fertility plans, our digestion experiments and struggles and the weird things we both do to tune in to our body’s requests.

    And for the first time ever, we plan to take this conversation public! 

    Join me, Tanya Maher of Tanya’s and Shirin Kouros of The Good Life, as we share our journeys on balancing entrepreneurship, wellness, relationships and motherhood.


    Moderated by Claudia Canavan, a renowned food and lifestyle journalist, this talk uncovers the how and why the health movement has changed in 2018 and what the future holds.

    Next workshop - 17 June - Easy raw lunches that kids will love

    Lake Maher- healthy toddler

    Feeding our children is a minefield. One day they love your healthy concoction and demand for more, another day they wouldn't even try it if Superman and Peppa Pig themselves made it.

    Get the flavour just right and you may even get them to eat raw plants for a day without even knowing it. That's what I'm hoping to teach you in this class.

    I will demonstrate some truly scrumptious kid friendly recipes, which Lake and I are happy to share any day of the week. We will make Green Smoothie Balls, Cheezy Courgetti, Sunflower Seed Hummus and No-Dehydrator Falafels with a Calcium-rich Sauce.

    You will taste everything in class along with other awesome parents.

    Class is suitable towards parents of 2 to 11 year olds.

    What is dowsing and what do I use it for?

    What is dowsing and what do I use it for?

    They're here! 

    They're here! 
    They're here! 

    Nope, not excited about my parents being in London one tiny bit.

    Not excited about this weekend either.

    Not about David Wolfe's epic masterclass on Sunday where we are the exclusive caterer.

    Not about my mum's insanely important workshop on dowsing this Saturday.

    None. Of. It.  Ha! Yeah right.  In fact, these are the days I LIVE for!

    My parents just landed in Heathrow for the first time in 8 years, which makes it all the more special. Then come Saturday, we will make our way to Central Working in Paddington, where my mum's workshop 'Connection with your Higher Self via dowsing' will take place 2-5pm.

    A few of you have been asking about what dowsing even is and how this may be relevant to your life, so I wanted to tell you about what I do with it...

    What is it?

    If you were to google 'dowsing' you will find lots of reference to a couple of L shaped sticks held with your hands and used to locate a water source.

    But man, there is so much more to it! It dates to at least 16th century. Later dowsing was used to locate mines to avoid a particular route. Then it was even used by Albert Einstein, who said this:

    "I know very well that many scientists consider dowsing as a type of ancient superstition. According to my conviction this is, however, unjustified. The dowsing rod is a simple instrument which shows the reaction of the human nervous system to certain factors which are unknown to us at this time."

    What do I do with it?

    In my coaching practice, dowsing helps my clients work out the foods they are sensitive to or whether their stubborn unwanted fat has anything to do with stored childhood memories or perhaps their low energy levels has something to do with the weight of 'evil eyes' brought on by a distant relative. Once we know the cause, we can use the dowsing rod to work out a possible treatment.

    For my own personal use, dowsing is a tool I utilise for almost anything.

    When we travel, I check whether the fruits I'm buying are organic. If they aren't, I can do a further check on whether they are safe for me and my family (on a recent trip, a pineapple showed up to be 90% safe for me, but only 10% safe for Lake. No doubt, more chemicals were used in agriculture than her tiny clean digestive tract could handle)...

    I use a dowsing rod to check whether I'm lacking any minerals and which supplement is necessary. I even take it to a health store and use it to check exactly which brand and type of say Magnesium is required for my body. I then use it to check how many capsules, how many times a day and what duration will be required to take those supplements till my system is stabilised. You get the idea.

    Aside from diet, I can use the dowsing rod to confirm that the home we're looking to move to is 100% suitable for my family and if not 100%, then whether the schooling, future capitals gains, bad energy vortex of the land it's on, bad neighbours or poor construction quality have anything to do with why it's not a suitable home for us. 

    I can check if I need to run Lake to the doctor, if my bloated stomach has anything to do with what I ate or how I combined the ingredients, if it is safe to travel somewhere, if I should go ahead with the business deal,etc etc etc.

    BTW, it's not as straight forward as a Yes or No answer and the art of formulating a question correctly is something that takes time to master. Even interpreting an answer can be tricky, because the answer can be produced against your intuition and turn out to be merely a suggestion for taking a certain route because it is the only way to teach you an important lesson.

    This is where my mum, Lena Alekseeva, comes in!

    And she's not only here this Saturday to help you receive answers to some of your burning spiritual, diet, wellness, relationship or finance related questions, she is here to teach you how to enquire with the Universe at any time at all.

    She will teach you how to use a dowsing rod, how to tune it to your energy, how to formulate a correct question and how to interpret the answer.

    Pretty fricken cool.

    Go straight here to book your spot or to read more details>>

    As for this Sunday, my parents will be with me in York Hall, Bethnal Green, helping to run the Tanya's organic lunch stall at David Wolfe's masterclass. 

    If you're yet to discover why this nutrition superfood legend is pretty amazing, just google his name or find how many books he's written or note that he has over 11 million fans on Facebook alone.

    Bring. On. The Weekend!

    Hope to see lots and lots of you there,
