My interest in nutrition started when I starting experience digestive issues which led me look closely at what I was eating and my lifestyle. I became really interested how important nutrition is for our gut health! Our gut powers our immune system, helps us to absorb nutrients from food, impacts our metal health and overall wellbeing. I starting eating more fibre from fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole-grains as well as practicing Yoga and Pilates and managing my stress which personally made a huge difference in my health. However, the road to healthy eating wasn’t always smooth. Before I was a Dietitian I was always looking for the magic answer or the perfect way of eating and before long I was overthinking everything I ate and going out with friends was stressful. I put so many restrictions on myself and I started to develop an unhealthy relationship with food. I now strongly believe in making peace with food, and adapting a non-diet approach to wellness without restricting or feeling guilty for eating certain foods.
I am now a mum of a 2 year old little girl and I soon realised as parents we have an important role to play in modelling eating behaviours to our children. Since becoming a mother, I have become so passionate Maternal nutrition as well as nutrition for children as I truely believe what we do in the early years sets our child up for a healthy relationship with food later in life.
I truely hope to inspire others to enjoy a wide variety of nourishing foods that you and the whole family can enjoy.
