We’re bringing you an EPIC series called “10 questions with” so you can get to know the Macro Mike fam! We get personal, get deep and get them to spill the tea on their fave MM goodies, future goals and who inspires them. This week we get to know creative genius, foodie Queen and Macro Mike Brand Hero - Noa Williams.
Name: Noa Williams
Location: Melbourne, Australia.
1. What makes you....YOU?
I think there are so many things that makes me, 'me'. To name a couple; I can be an odd ball and i’m proud of it, I love to lift everyone around me up and surround myself with people that lift me up! I love kindness. I'm an animal lover. I’m creative. I get excited about new ideas, challenges and new opportunities. I’m empathetic and passionate.......and yeh, I hope others see it this way too! 🙈
2. Take us on your Macro Mike journey, how did you come to be part of the Macro Mike fam?
The Macro Mike team actually took me on really, really early in my influencing career. In fact only a few months after I started noashealthyeats, we connected. I was trying a few different proteins that were out there and that were recommended and I just didn’t like any of them, until I tried my first Macro Mike Choccy Peanut Butter bag. I made a Millionaires slice with the protein as the base and shared it to my stories tagging Macro Mike. That’s when you guys reached out to me to potentially work together. I only had a small following at the time and it was so exciting to work with a brand like Macro Mike and I continue that excitement till today 🥰
3. How do you like to MOVE your body?
Moving my body is therapeutic for me, and I love mixing it up. I prefer weights sessions and love challenging myself to lift heavier and reach new PB’s, but i’m also a fan of a good cardio/ hiit sesh and even a run when the mood strikes haha
4. What is your FAVE Macro Mike product? Tell us how you enjoy it.
Hmmm... well I think I need to say my collab proteins; Choc Caramel Bar & Caramelised White Choc, because YUM! I literally have them twice a day. But honestly there are so many products that I love, the Salted Caramel Almond Butter Powder, Salted Caramel and Vanilla Buttercream Proteins, Almond Butter Powders & the Macro Gut. You asked for 1 and I gave you like 10, but I couldn’t choose. I love having an arvo smoothie, creating desserts, or using them to design my breakfast recipe flavours.
5. Who INSPIRES you to be your best self?
I think i’m inspired by not 1 person, but with all the people I surround myself with. I believe in surrounding yourself with the people that lift you up, lend you knowledge and help you learn and grow! I love my friends and community I have made online, all inspiring me in their own way. From advocating for normalising normal bodies and skin, to food freedom, to overcoming health obstacles, to being the supportive friend I need. I think we can also learn and grow from our past selves to inspire the change we want to see in the world (bit of a cheesy quote, but I love it).
So I’m inspired by the positivity I surround myself with.
6. What are some DROOLWORTHY recipes using Macro Mike goodies that you can’t live without?
Omg there are so many! I love all my breakfast recipes, I literally go to bed dreaming about breaky, and all the amazing Macro Mike flavours allow me to be so creative.
I love my lava cake made with choccy protein or the almond biscuit powder. I love my raw slices made with Macro Mike in the base. I recently made a chocolate banana bread with my Choc Caramel collab protein, that was heaven! Basically don’t make me choose 😂
7. What are some words you LIVE by??
I recently said this quote to a friend "keep going, because you didn’t come this far, just to come this far". Meaning whatever your goals, plans or challenges are, you started them for a reason, let’s get to the finish line. But i’ve always been a fan of "Kindness is spreading sunshine into people lives regardless of the weather".
8. Tell us something about you that you are SUPER proud of?
I'm so proud of myself for turning my creative outlet into something so much bigger then I could ever imagined. I love that saying "what exists now, only does so because you made it". I'm also super proud of myself for the Macro Mike x Noa protein collab which has literally been a dream come true. If you told me a few years ago that I would get to collab with my favourite brand and bring a product that I absolutely adore to life... well it's exactly what I said, a dream come true :) Oh and also to have a cute little emoji of myself on a package, goals hehe.
9. What is your BEST Macro Mike experience so far??
I have so many, Macro Mike has been with me since the start.
1. One would have to be testing and developing our collab proteins. It was a dream of mine to be able to do something like this and i’m so happy we were able to bring it to life.
2. Another was finally getting to meet my second fam in person in March when I got to meet all the girls I speak to on the daily in person. I cannot believe how lovely kind the whole team is and what a great energy to be surrounded by!
10. What is a GOAL for you in the future?
My goals in the future for noashealthyeats would have to be to keep creating new products and growing by myself and with Macro Mike, working on my page and making it my full time business. I would love to be able to inspire people to do the same, and to encourage and support food freedom with out restriction. And as Mike and I always say, keep levelling up 🔥
