HELLO AND WELCOME.
I’m Samantha Schiavone an ordinary woman who has chosen to make some extraordinary decisions. I have created Schiavone360.com because I am constantly being asked for recipes, including plant-based and do-it-yourself beauty recipes, to what fitness program I am following, to tips and tricks for finding a balance and living a happier healthier lifestyle in today’s busy world.
I am a happily married 46 year young-stay-at-home-mum with 2 fun-loving boys Emmanuel (13) and Marcus (9). My husband (Chris) is my Technicolor! What does that mean, I hear you ask? What it actually means, is that he brings a brightness, a joy and intensity to my life that I didn’t have before. My family is truly my greatest blessing, my strength and my weakness!
I’m Australian-Maltese, born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. Currently I am living and playing in Athens Greece, where I am also raising my young family. All the time with dreams of having a beach address… living closer to the ocean is on my bucket list. Not that I live far from the beautiful coastline of Greece. I just want to be able to walk out my back gate and step on to the sandy beach. Yes, I want to live that close to the beach. There is something about the the sea that calls to my soul. I have always loved the sea with it’s calming and grounding effect it has on my well-being, just ask my kids, we usually spend all summer by the beach!
I am continuously telling my boys to dream bigger than they dare, always! One of my favourite quotes is:“Shoot for the Moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars!
I love the smell of freshly brewed coffee… but rarely drink it! Instead, I enjoy fresh smoothies and slow pressed juices that I make for myself and family at home. We all usually have two or more fresh juices daily. I love rhubarb, passionfruit and silverbeet but cannot get them here in Athens!
Travelling is one of my passions and I am always up for an adventure and exploring new places. Hence, my goal is to run out of pages in my Passports! Yes, I have 2 of them! Honestly, I would gladly live out of a suitcase, if it meant I could travel and see the whole wide world!
My goal for Schiavone360.com is all about YOU and how I can help motivate and inspire you to find balance between health living and encouraging you to take steps to achieve an even happier lifestyle. I’m excited about taking my family and yours on a more wholesome plant based lifestyle… and developing healthier plant-based recipes. Growing up on a “plant-based lifestyle” in Greece is not always easy, as there are celebrations all the time. Nearly all of the celebrations are religious holidays and definitely always include a feast. Meaning there is always a lot of food which generally means a lot of meat! Food and Celebrations go hand-in-hand in the Greek lifestyle. I cannot wait to share how we manage these and more with you.
Join me as I document our adventures in food, fitness and travel.
