The 6 Components of Finding Balance: 360° Wellness

Trying to find a balance. Where do you even start?  Nybll founder and Culinary Director, Chef Kristen Thibeault, spoke at the offices of WalkMe to address this perennial struggle that so many of us face everyday.

Chef Kristen described the hustle and bustle of her past life as a jet-setting marketing maven and the way in which everything in her life had to change once she was struck with a cancer diagnosis. It was at that point that she made the decision to only focus on the elements of life that she could control.  Chef adopted a vegan diet; going back to the basics with whole fruits, vegetables and plant protein… and it worked. The power of the plant fueled her to a full recovery. Fast-forward to today, and now one can experience how each of Nybll’s well balanced, plant-forward catering menu themes is created with performance at heart and tastiness in mind. 

With so many distractions available in the modern world, Chef reminds us to take it back to the basics to achieve a well-rounded state. Taking the first step at the workplace, by utilising a plant-forward corporate catering service puts 360 ° Wellness well within your team’s grasp.
