I’m Tiana! a Nutrition and Dietetics University student with a Passion for helping people towards better health through positive changes in diet and mindset. The Life of Goodness website is a way of sharing my love for healthy cooking and wellness as I know first hand that food can heal the body from the inside out not only physically but also mentally.
I do not believe in a “quick fix” or “fad diets” as these often do more harm than good in the long run. I do, however, believe we can heal our bodies through a healthy balanced lifestyle eating whole natural foods and through a willingness to change. The choice is entirely yours!

My passion to follow a natural “whole food diet” began as a way to combat my intolerance’s to certain foods and food additives and as a means to improve food digestion. Before this time my body had a lot of difficulty absorbing nutrients from food and consequently I suffered from both weight gain and weight loss, severe bloating, nausea, fatigue, hormonal issues, mood changes and foggy brain. I was often unwell and regularly took antibiotics prescribed by my doctors for various health issues.
It got to the point where my body (and mind) just had enough, as nothing I did seemed to ease my discomfort. I was well and truly ready to change my life – forever – and determined to find a ‘cure’. I began by cutting out the foods that I believed were causing me discomfort–> gluten, meat, dairy products, processed sugar and processed foods. I started incorporating more fibre from fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and gluten free whole grains. By making these changes to my diet and adjusting my lifestyle I noticed myself feeling more energised, happy and healthy.
Becoming mindful about what you eat allows you to connect with nature and uncovers the healing powers it can provide you.
