This week’s inspirational person is…

Melissa Ambrosini!

Meet Melissa…

Tell us a little about who you are, what you do, and how you got here:

I am a truth seeker, inspiration addict, green juice junkie, lover of all things organic and a massive believer that heaven is right here on earth. I choose love over fear in every moment. I choose to have a miracle mindset and believe we create our life moment by moment.

I help women fall in love with themselves, regain their power and to live the life of their dreams. I want to share with you what I have come to discover through my own journey. Over the past five years, I have gone deep into my relationship with myself. I have come to see why we do the things we do. I realized people place a lot of power outside of themselves—myself included. So, bit-by-bit, I have regained my power and have seen the truth. I pealed back the masks I was wearing, let go of the games, and started to live a big, full, authentic life.

What does ‘health’ mean to you?

Health, to me, means looking after yourself. It means making conscious choices that support and nature your body, mind, and soul in a loving way. To be ‘healthy’ you need to balance all three. If one of them is out, there is a blockage and the others cannot flow.

How do you manage to stay so fit and healthy, please share with us your dietary philosophy/secrets:

  • I choose to fuel my body with organic food, pastured raised meats, wild caught fish and filtered water.
  • I move my body every day with yoga, cross fit or a nice walk in nature.
  • I choose to think only pure thoughts that serve me and to let go of the past.
  • I love myself unconditional.  

What brings balance to your life?

  • Getting in touch with nature.
  • Time with family and loved ones.
  • Taking time out for self-love.
  • Cups of tea, journaling and writing poetry in nature.

Your favourite healthy recreational activity?

Right now it’s either yoga, Bondi to Bronte walk followed by a fresh green juice with my best girlfriends, or going to the markets with friends. I am also going to singing, chanting, and meditation circles –which I love.

Who is your greatest health inspiration?

Jess Ainscough (aka The Wellness Warrior). Jess sparked this flame within me to heal my body naturally many years ago. She reminded me that giving half the chance the body can heal from anything. She is my biggest inspiration. I love this girl very dearly and am so proud of her.

Where is your favourite place on earth?

Right here, right now is this very present moment. It’s perfect!

What is your favourite healthy meal/snack?

Mmmm…Tough question! Either kale chips, raw bliss balls, raw cheesecake, green smoothies, fresh green juices, slow cooked lamb with roasted coconut veggies and guacamole dip with veggies sticks…Mmmmm! Now I am salivating.

What is your favourite healthy neighborhood restaurant?

Sean Pamaroma for dinner and Earth Food Store or Health Emporium for breakfast, lunch or a quick snack.

What is next on the cards for you, what are you goals and aspirations?

I am currently writing an e-book and about to release healthTALKS—a new show I have been working on about bringing you easily digestible health and wellness straight into your living room.

Please share with us one of your favourite healthy recipes:

Raw Cacao Fudge Bites

raw cacao fudge bites


  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 2 1/2 cups medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 cup cacao powder
  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. Soak dates in warm water to soften for 5 minutes. Whilst dates are soaking add walnuts, cacao and salt to food processor and blend until finely ground.
  2. Add dates and blend until combined. The mixture should resemble cake crumbs but when pressed will easily stick together.
  3. Place mixture into fun ice cube trays and into the freezer.
  4. Freeze for at least 1 hour.

Hi Jessica, I believe in synchronicity so when I was guided to you .on FB I was intrigued and inspired. I turned 46 last week and my husband bought me your book. I wanted to thank you for sharing your wisdom in such a beautifully presented way. My  copy is now filled with tabs and post it notes with actual notes throughout. I am dairy intolerant since having my gallbladder removed 15+ years ago, I don't eat meat, very minimal gluten and was told 12 months ago my gut was not digesting my food properly so I wasn't receiving sufficient nutrients and taking supplements would be a waste of time.  My weight fluctuates tending to gain rather than lose but now I believe I have a tool to help me bring my body back into balance that I need for my health and longevity of life - so again thank you. The first few steps to creating a stronger path forward for my health has found its foundation in your beautiful book, The Healthy Life.

With kindest regards Samantha

I'm writing this email because I wanted to tell you how much I love your blog and how you really helped me in my health journey. Thank you for sharing all your advices and experiences.

When I started my studies, I was drinking lots of coffee and I was eaten the wrong foods, and feel bad about it, I wasn't at my best. So I had done some research on the net but at first I didn't found advices that are for me, and then I found your blog. It was exactly what I was looking for, good advices and healthy recipes. Now I'm following your advices on rest more, and snacks between meals and prep the meals and take time for myself to reconnect with my body and let go my anxiety, etc, and I have a more balanced life and have a new relationship with food thanks to you.

I bought your book and it's honestly the best book I have ever bought. I suffer from IBS and anxiety. I have paid so much money seeing naturopaths however after reading your book and all of your tips I'm noticing so much of a difference, so simple and easy to follow. And symptoms have dramatically decreased. Also you have helped me to relax. Currently drinking the protein health smoothie! Thankyou your amazing.


Hey Jessica!
I haven’t yet brought ‘The Healthy Life’, but I do have the clean life and your slim down plan! I would like to thank you so much for the knowledge your share and the message you put across about health and wellness. I’m studying Nutritional Medicine in Melbourne and absolutely love the philosophy that you share with your JSHealth community. The work you’ve done to show people that leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t boring, tasteless, difficult or depriving is amazing and hope to share the message myself one day. You’ve inspired me to start my own blog , to share the message and have taught me so many things about my own health! You should be proud of your achievements! Thank you again

I searched for help and tips through the Internet and found Jessica Sepel. This is seriously not exaggerated, but she was the reason why I have dared myself to eat again, to have snacks in between, to nourish my body. I could slowly improve my negative thoughts about my body image and my stupid anxiety of gaining weight. Besides, The Cleanest Gut was awesome too! A huge thank you! Especially from my mum. Seriously, without you I wouldn’t be where I am now!


Congratulations on your new book! It looks absolutely gorgeous. I’ve been following you on Instagram for a few years and you’ve inspired me to slowly but surely eat healthier without giving myself a hard time when I don’t. It made me so happy (and weirdly proud) to see the Daily Mail article on The Healthy Life. I remember trying out your recipes before you even had your eBook out! I can’t wait to get my hands on the book. Keep up the great work.

Cooking in this way truly brought out the foodie in me and has instilled a huge passion for health and wellness! Life throws you hard and frustrating things sometimes but I truly believe that this is where we learn more about ourselves and what our passions in life are! Thank you for inspiring me on my journey to health and wellness!


I am a yoga teacher in Johannesburg and am thrilled to have bought your book today. I love making healthy, nutritious food for my family, friends and fellow yogis! Thank you for this book and your inspiration (had to share a pic of my book on my recipe stand in the kitchen).

– Helene

I bought your beautiful book during the week and told my bestie to go out and buy it also! I love love love it. It is the book I would give to my younger self if I could (I am 41 years old). Everything is just so sensible and informative and is definitely a book all teenagers should have. This should be a text book for girls becoming teens. I will love going back and re-reading it many many times and can't wait to make more of the recipes. Thank you Jess - you are an incredibly inspiring woman and you should feel so proud
