In early 2012, in response to some health issues within her family, and being aware of her own family history of health risks, Nicola started investigating ways of consciously using food to enhance health and well-being. Feeling confused about messages around nutrition, she decided that one consistent principle was that eating more plants made a whole lot of sense. She started investigating ways of using plant ingredients in innovative ways, and realised that the wholefood and raw food movements provide a lot of inspiration and strategies for doing just that. Incorporating more plant-based food (and particularly more raw food) in her family’s diet brought about so many benefits in terms of health, energy and vitality that she wanted to start sharing this information and inspiration – and the idea of starting a blog, and running demonstrations and workshops, came about. Rather than calling herself a foodie, Nicola now likes to think of herself as a Super Foodie. She is passionate about sharing this inspiration for fantastic, healthy, delicious plant-based food, through recipes, demos, workshops and all-round plant-based food love!

Ricky had spent 26 years in NZ Police in management roles. With the with onset of a restructure in sight, he had to make some important decision and he decided to do one of the things he was passionate about. He decided to leave and went back to University to complete postgraduate studies he had started some time earlier. While doing Project Management some years earlier with the University, he picked up on something called "Structured Decision-making", got introduced to the Associate Professor associated with this subject area and this became his benchmark for his studies.​He loved it so much that this passion translated into the setup of his business Good Decision Ltd to help businesses with the provision of structured decision-making.
