By now we’re all familiar with the ways in which women are discriminated against and abused in our society. Lower wages, unrealistic body expectations, cat-calls, undermined basic human rights, sexualisation, sexual-abuse, objectification and patronisation, the list goes on… Luckily the world seems to be shifting in radical new ways. The rise of the divine feminine can be seen all across the globe, from movements like #MeToo, red-tents re-emerging at festival grounds and the celebration of a woman’s natural moon-cycle. It is clear that woman are ready to unite against the patriarchal oppression that has limited and silenced them, and one way they’re doing this is through sister-circles.
Our fabulous fairy founder Tash just returned from 2 weeks in Portugal at the world-famous BOOM festival and we couldn’t wait to find out all about it. Her experience sounded so wondrous that we’ve decided to share some of it with you, so that you can feel even a small fraction of the magic.

Inspired by her eco-warrior ways, this week we’re bringing you 5 amazing businesses you can use to live zero-waste in Cape Town.
We should all know by now that plastic is a problem. From the countless posts crowding our news feed and the tragic tales in “Blue Planet II” and National Geographics recent “Planet or Plastic” issue, it is obvious that plastic pollution is a hot topic on the tongues of many politicians, activists and ordinary citizens.
This week, Nourish’d Obs hosted its first conscious event – “Optimising gut health for hormonal balance” and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Run by the fabulous Beatrice and Nicola Rabkin, the mother/daughter duo behind Hormonal Harmony, the sold-out evening was aimed at raising women’s awareness of their moon cycle, gut health and hormonal balance. If you weren’t able to make it, don’t worry, because in this post we summarize their main points and add some sneaky recommendations of our own.
Hello and welcome, fellow plant-eaters, to the first instalment of our adventure into the blogosphere. The transformation Nourish’d has gone through in the last few years has been astonishing, and we’re still growing and learning every day. All of this knowledge is just too good not to share, so here are some of the things you can expect from us in the coming months…
