Nutrition is something we should all be aiming to learn more about. It can literally change our lives. My aim is to help everyone discover a new love for healthy foods and to get you excited to eat real food again. Not only will you be able to better your own health but you will be able to guide the people you love most in the right direction too.
Working alongside a trained Nutritional Therapist is an investment that you will reap the benefits of for a lifetime and not just for the short period of time you work with them. The investment into your health is one that you cannot put a price on, it is something that can change your life for the best or for the worst when you start to neglect it. Working with a Nutritional Therapist for just 3 to 6 months can significantly impact the rest of your life and the life of those you love.
I decided to learn all about nutrition because nothing makes me happier than food - that's really why.
I always enjoyed cooking but never had any idea about just how much of an impact it could have on my overall health. Growing up I hated anything deemed a 'healthy food'. I struggled to eat any fruits or vegetables because they would always be served boiled or steamed, basically they tasted horrible and wet. Whenever these foods were left on my plate I was told to eat them 'because they were good for me' with no real explanation as to why.
Nothing about whole foods caught my attention.
Nowadays, my perspective around healthy foods has changed. It doesn't feel like an effort to include them in my diet every day because I love them, genuinely. I love cooking them in different sauces and seasonings and creating textures that make them taste so moorish that I can't stop filling up on them. I now understand the different health benefits to all these wonderful foods and that just makes me want to eat them more.

Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
