This is the website I wish I had years ago when I began researching and eating a plant-based diet.
A little about me
I’m a qualified nutritionist with a passion for plant-based health. I studied a Bachelor of Health Science for Nutritional Medicine at Endeavour College of Natural Health in Melbourne. Through my studies, I’ve learnt the importance of science-based nutrition and how the food we eat can either make us sick or make us healthy. Working with clients in the student clinic this year has provided valuable experience that I want to share with you.
I haven’t always had a healthy relationship with food. During my teens and early 20’s I was constantly on some kind of fad diet, restricting my food, only for it to end in overeating/binging. I over-exercised because I thought it was the only way. The goals I set for myself were based around how much weight I wanted to lose or what clothes I wanted to fit into. Rarely did I ever actually reach any of them. Most importantly, I was unhappy and felt unhealthy.
I’m an animal lover through and through and border-line obsessed with French Bulldogs, especially my pup, Luna. So, expect to see her cute little face pop up on the pages of this website.
My food and health philosophy
My health philosophy is simple:
- Eat more plants.
The research is clear about the benefits of including more plant foods.
- Choose whole foods.
Fill your kitchen with fresh, whole foods and less processed foods.
- Let go of the perfectionism.
It’s not all-or-nothing. Take the pressure off yourself.
- No more dieting.
I don’t believe in restrictions or deprivation.
- Move your body in a way that you enjoy.
It’s more sustainable and will reduce your stress around exercise.
- Find your own balance.
What works for me, may not work for you. And that’s ok.
- Treats are a part of a healthy lifestyle.
Because, what’s a life without chocolate, right?
