Bali Retreat Presentation 2020

Early February 2020, I had the amazing opportunity to present on a world stage, in Bali. 

Here, amongst some of the world’s finest, I was able to not only participate in the ‘Spice Up My Life Retreat’ but I also had the privilege and honour in sharing my knowledge and passion for eating a healthy low carb / ketogenic diet.

Part of my presentation included developing an entire days menu, that not only contained meals low in carbs but had to also include vegetarian options for each course.

Nothing beats having a top-class chef in Bali

A Journey of FATE

-Diane Agars, Business & Personal Strategic Coach (Retreat Facilitator)

Amazing souls come together each individually seeking something more in their world. 

Our lives are so busy that no matter who we are, or the label we carry, we often find ourselves, our personal beings, in a state of neglect without truly being conscious. Many times we believe we are doing the right thing. Saying, moving the way we should, but instead, we are just keeping up with life. A busy one at that! 

One of the important, let’s say crucial, components was nutrition. Understanding health and why. 

As a busy entrepreneur myself, it’s essential I’m on point with my fuel intake or I may fall into states of sabotage, sadness, lack of energy, motivation even overwhelm just to name a few. It causes a downward spiral, simply by not being aware of my eating habits. 

We were blessed at the retreat to have Kim Caruk, world-class chef and recipe developer from Deliciously Keto, provide us with an outstanding menu. This menu was simply off the charts giving us the fuel we needed to support our bodies particularly while being in Bali, and being challenged by climate, change of mind, fear, new environment and people. 

This menu was completely sustainable and allowed us to be filled with vitality and energy to pursue our days. 

The best part was to have an understanding of the behind the scenes of what Kim created and why. 

We had the privilege for Kim to speak and to educate us.

This left all of us with a better appreciation for our food and have a clear direction without any effort on how we could adopt this nutritious fuel even if we don’t know how to cook.

That’s me!


The spice up my life retreat was spoilt with so many flavours to unlock and ignite the possibilities within each soul. 

Here’s what some of the participants had to say about the menu… 

The chicken skewers with cauliflower rice and the stuffed zucchini parcels were my favourites. Well balanced flavours, textures and temperatures that made for some very exciting meals. – Samantha

My general feedback is there wasn’t enough of these delights to consume.  Type of food that this garbage truck rarely eat but my taste buds were having a party at the freshness and yumminess of it all!! – Sabina
